Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

Even with healthy lifestyle choices like eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise, many people aren’t happy with their bodies. Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that reshapes specific body areas by removing excess fat through suction.

Liposuction isn’t a treatment for obesity or a substitute for healthy weight loss with diet and exercise. However, Dr. Tamburrino helps adults in the south Jersey and Philadelphia areas achieve the sculpted bodies they desire with liposuction.

What is Smartlipo?

In addition to traditional liposuction, Dr. Tamburrino offers Smartlipo by Cynosure®. Also known as laser lipo, this procedure uses laser energy to destroy fat cells before suctioning them out.

Three specific laser wavelengths target and destroy fat cells which makes it easier for Dr. Tamburrino to remove them. The laser simultaneously stimulates collagen production which helps to improve skin tightness and elasticity.

What areas can liposuction treat?

Dr. Tamburrino performs liposuction alone or along with other procedures, such as a breast reduction or tummy tuck. Smartlipo or traditional liposuction can reduce stubborn fat deposits in many common areas, including:

  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Arms and legs
  • Chin and neck
  • Back

During your consultation, Dr. Tamburrino carefully listens to your specific concerns and body-contouring goals. Using advanced, 3D imaging technology, he can even show you a computer-generated preview of what your body could look like with Smartlipo or liposuction.

Who is a good candidate for Smartlipo or liposuction?

When considering liposuction, it’s important to remember that this isn’t a treatment for weight loss. Ideal candidates for liposuction should already be close to their target body weight.

Before recommending Smartlipo or liposuction, Dr. Tamburrino spends over an hour discussing your needs during a consultation. Then he develops an individualized body-contouring plan that best achieves your goals.

Smartlipo may involve less pain and a shorter recovery time. However, not everyone is a candidate for this minimally invasive procedure. If you’re not a candidate for Smartlipo, Dr. Tamburrino may recommend regular liposuction.

Dr. Tamburrino performs Smartlipo and liposuction procedures in his office or at a local hospital. The best way to find out if either of these procedures is right for you is to call Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery or book an appointment online today.
