Dr. Paul M. Glat offers liposuction at his Bala Cynwyd office serving the Montgomery County, Philadelphia, and South Jersey area in order to improve the body contours and figures of his patients.* The liposuction procedure involves making small incisions and using a suction device to subtract excess fat. It is an excellent way to treat a moderate amount of body fat that does not respond readily to diet and exercise. Dr. Glat’s award-winning approach to cosmetic surgery ensures that his liposuction patients achieve consistently amazing results.*
The chief benefit of liposuction is a thinner, more attractive body. In addition to a beautiful new look, liposuction patients enjoy the health benefits that come with shedding extra weight.* Losing weight is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancer. Liposuction is also versatile and can easily be adapted to the unique needs of each patient.
Though liposuction is an effective procedure, it is not the best option for every patient. Dr. Paul M. Glat will evaluate patients at his Bala Cynwyd office serving the greater Philadelphia and South Jersey area and help them decide whether liposuction is right for them. As with all elective surgical procedures, candidates must be in good overall health. Patients with large amounts of excess fat and those suffering from diabetes, poor circulation, heart disease, or lung disease should not undergo liposuction.
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.*

Full recovery from liposuction usually takes no more than a few weeks during which the patient will wear protective bandages. Patients are frequently able to return to work in less than a week. There will be some swelling and tenderness after the procedure, but it should subside quickly as the patient recovers. Within a few weeks, patients will be able to show off an exciting new body contour.*
Many people turn to liposuction to lose unwanted pounds 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 a laser. 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 and makes it easy to remove.
With SmartLipo® and SlimLipo, multiple areas of the body can be treated. Patient results are typically achieved in only one treatment, and most people notice results within one week.* Many people can return to work the next day and can resume all normal activities a few days following the procedure. If you are looking to minimize fat deposits in a non-invasive way, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Paul Glat to learn more about SmartLipo® and SlimLipo today!
