What is Liposuction?

Dr. Paul M. Glat offers custom liposuction for body sculpting at his private, luxury Bala Cynwyd office in Philadelphia. His liposuction procedure involves making small incisions and applying a specialized device to remove pockets of unwanted fat. Liposuction could be the ideal procedure for removing a moderate amount of body fat that has been difficult to shed, even with a strict diet and regular workouts. Dr. Glat’s award-winning approach and meticulous care produce consistently excellent results.

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

The chief benefit of liposuction is a slimmer, more attractive body. In addition to achieving a more sculpted, appealing physique, you could enjoy the health benefits associated with shedding excess weight. Losing weight is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and certain forms of cancer. Liposuction is a versatile procedure and can be adapted to match your unique needs.

Am I a Candidate For Liposuction in Philadelphia?

Liposuction is a very effective procedure, but it is not the best option for every person. Dr. Paul M. Glat can speak with you privately at his Bala Cynwyd office, where he and his team of body sculpting professionals serve the greater Philadelphia area. As with all elective surgical procedures, you should be in good overall health. Patients with large amounts of excess fat, who have diabetes, poor circulation, heart disease, or lung disease are not good candidates for liposuction.

The Liposuction Procedure

After administering a local anesthetic, Dr. Paul M. Glat makes a small, discreet incision in the area to be treated. Using a narrow tube attached to a suction device, the doctor carefully breaks up and removes fat deposits. After he closes the incision, the liposuction procedure is complete. The patient gains a smoother body contour in a single surgical procedure.

How Long Does it Take to Recover From Liposuction?

Full recovery from liposuction in Philadelphia usually takes no more than a few weeks, during which you will wear protective bandages. Most people can return to work in less than a week. There will be some swelling and tenderness after the procedure, but it should subside quickly as you recover. Within a few weeks, you can enjoy revealing your exciting new body contour.

SmartLipo® vs SlimLipo

Many people turn to liposuction to lose unwanted fat and improve body contouring. However, now other options allow for amazing results with a less invasive procedure and less downtime. SmartLipo® and SlimLipo are new procedures that remove fat with the assistance of laser energy. A thin tube with a laser is inserted into the targeted area. This laser delivers thermal energy to the fat cells, which disrupts fatty tissue for easier, gentler removal.

Liposuction FAQ

Is liposuction a weight loss procedure?

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure because the maximum amount of weight you can lose with liposuction is only 8-10 pounds. Liposuction is designed to sculpt and trim small areas of the body.

What other procedures can be performed with a liposuction?

Liposuction is often combined with a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or breast lift, thigh lift, butt lift and abdominal etching, among other procedures.

Are there any risks?

Because it is a surgical procedure, liposuction has risks, including infection, numbness and scarring.

Will there be scars?

If there is any scarring, it will be very small, a dot about the size of a freckle, and will fade over several months.

Is it covered by Insurance?

Because liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure, it is not covered by medical insurance.
