Laser Lipo and Tumescent Lipo

This is an example of the incredible transformation liposuction can make when done safely, sensibly, and correctly!

This is a 37 year old woman who wanted a sexier, more feminine physique, and also wanted to fit better in her clothes (don’t we all?). She had a combined liposuction procedure using both laser liposuction and traditional liposuction techniques, and this is the truly amazing result less than two months after her surgery.

The overall difference in her shape and size is remarkable, but even at this early stage you can’t find a single ripple, wrinkle, lump or bump. She’s obviously thrilled with these results, which are very uncommon when liposuction is performed in the wrong setting by the wrong people. Make sure your plastic surgeon is qualified to be doing procedures like this before you sign on the dotted line, and if a price seems too good to be true, just remember that it probably is.

Is SmartLipo better than Traditional Liposuction?

liposuction new york, liposuction NYC, plastic surgery, plastic surgeon nyc, dr plastic surgeonThere’s a reason that liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world: it works. Not just in the physical sense, either—most people who undergo liposuction emerge from the experience more satisfied with and confident about their body.

With all of the liposuction techniques out there, how do you pick the best one?

A lot of doctors out there right now are pushing hard for SmartLipo (also known as “laser lipolysis”) as the most appealing option, claiming that traditional liposuction just doesn’t cut it anymore in light of the new technologies that are available. But are they right?

Can Liposuction Lower Your Cholesterol?

Liposuction by NYC Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MASAccording to research presented at the 2011 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, liposuction may have more than a cosmetic benefit!

The researchers discovered that triglyceride levels were as much as 43% lower in a small group of patients who had were diagnosed with high triglycerides before having liposuction. The study was very small, and has quite a few limitations, but it’s still an interesting result!

Of course, this isn’t a reason for everyone with high cholesterol to rush out and get liposuction. There are risks associated with the procedure, and those risks increase exponentially with conditions like obesity and heart disease, which are both associated with high cholesterol.

In addition, it’s still unclear whether the reduction in triglyceride levels was a permanent change, or whether it actually led to any real health benefits. It’s also important to note that there were no changes in any other type of cholesterol (HDL, LDL, or Total Cholesterol), and that the gold standard for reducing triglycerides is still simple common sense dietary adjustments!

Tickle Lipo! Is it a laughing matter? Or a laughing stock?

Tickle Lipo, also known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture, has been generating some press lately for it’s role in making the experience of liposuction more comfortable… or laughable in some cases!

The principle behind Tickle Liposuction is not a new one. Many dentists and plastic surgeons have used vibration to lessen the sensation of pain during numbing injections for years, and this is the exact principle that Tickle Lipo employs. The liposuction cannulas themselves vibrate and rotate at a very high speed to “trick” your nerves into feeling a sensation other than pain, and some patients have described it as “ticklish”… hence the name!

The theory behind Tickle Lipo makes sense, but does it translate into practical results? Or is it just another gimmick procedure?

Traditionally, these problem areas are perfect candidates for liposuction, but recently there has been quite a bit of buzz about treating these areas with fat dissolving injections! However, this treatment has not been FDA approved yet… so is it worth it, or is it better to stick with regular liposuction?

Liposuction vs Tummy Tuck to Banish a Post-Baby Belly

tummy tuck vs liposuction, tummy tuck info, liposuction info, how to get rid of belly fat

model

Did pregnancy leave you with prune-like paunch?

Ask any mother, and she’ll tell you that your body goes through all kinds of changes while you’re pregnant. Once you’ve given birth,many of those changes to are there  to stay whether you like it or not.

For most women these changes center around the abdominal area. Your skin expands and stretches to accommodate your baby during pregnancy which can lead to excess drooping skin on your stomach. The muscles inside your abdominal may also become loose and lax due to pregnancy, which further exacerbates that saggy look.

Some women get lucky, and they experience only minimal stretching from pregnancy which they can counter with a healthy lifestyle (Giselle anyone?). The majority of women, however, don’t get off so easily and for them, no amount of fresh vegetables and exercise will restore their tummy to what it was before they had children.

When weight loss and toning aren’t enough to banish that bulge you may consider plastic surgery. Everyone knows that liposuction and tummy tucks work wonders for smoothing your stomach, but it can be confusing to decide which one is the right choice.

Here is a quick guide to when to suck it up and when to tuck it up. Read on for more about liposuction vs tummy tucks for smoothing your post-baby bump!

Katy Perry’s Oom-Pa-Popping Out at Oktoberfest!

Katy Perry made a sparkling appearance on a hot German television show over the weekend. Katy says she’s loving Germany, especially their notorious heavy cuisine and brews.

We wonder if  all that imbibing is going straight to her thighs. She seems just a tad bit bumpy in that skin-tight body suit. While we love her poppin’ cleavage, her hips and thighs are reminding us of some bratwurst stuffed into its casing.

“Inner thigh liposuction would be a fantastic procedure for Katy. It could be done in the office under local anesthesia in less than an hour, and she would notice the result immediately! She would fit better in everything from her skinniest pair of jeans, to the tightest stage outfit in her wardrobe.”, says NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Vendemia.

We agree that a little lipo would help smooth things over, especially if she followed up with a good compression garment to hold things in. Don’t get us wrong, we think Katy still looks smokin hot, but this outfit was not her most flattering fit.

The big question is, what will she squeeze her sexy bod in when she struts down the aisle any day now?

Should you get liposuction if you’re “Skinny Fat”?

Skinny fat. It’s a blessing and a curse.

We all know those Hollywood ladies who weigh about 90lbs but still manage to look a little flabby. How can that be?

The truth is, skinny doesn’t always mean that you’re fit. In fact, that’s exactly the reason why so many skinny fat leading ladies still turn to liposuction to help get rid of  their flab, no matter how small it is. The problem is that the procedure is not as straightforward as it is when there isn’t much fat to suck out.

Keep reading to get the skinny on skinny fat liposuction…
