Liposuction Surgery

Is Stubborn Fat Weighing on You? Liposuction May Be the Answer!

Do you pride yourself on consistently following a healthy diet and exercise regimen but find that you are constantly plagued by stubborn fat in certain areas of your body? Are you at or near your ideal body weight, but cannot get rid of pesky fat in your abdominal area or on your thighs? Do you have love handles, saddlebags or a “double chin” no matter how hard you work out?

These fatty areas may not be your fault. Many people suffer from stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Often, fat can accumulate and get stuck under the skin in one or more areas of the body. But you no longer have to feel discouraged! Essex / Union County plastic surgeon Dr. Erwin Bulan has a solution: liposuction.

Liposuction is a body contouring plastic surgery procedure designed to eliminate these stubborn areas of fat. Dr. Bulan can perform liposuction on almost any area of the body, including the abdomen, back, ankles, calves, knees, hips, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, chin and neck.

The Basics of Liposuction

Liposuction goes by several different names, including lipoplasty and liposculpture. No matter what you call it, liposuction is an outpatient procedure, and can be performed under either general or local anesthesia (as determined during your preoperative appointment with Dr. Bulan). Liposuction can be performed on its own or may be combined with tummy tuck as part of a procedure called lipoabdominoplasty.

Dr. Bulan typically performs tumescent liposuction, meaning he injects a tumescent solution into the treated area before removing the excess fat. The tumescent solution contains sterile saltwater and a local anesthetic that constricts blood vessels, causing the treated area to become swollen and firm. This minimizes bleeding in the area.

During liposuction, Dr. Bulan inserts a thin, hollow tube called a cannula through a miniscule incision, removing excess fat from underneath the skin. He can combine this basic liposuction technique with laser-assisted energy or power-assisted vibrations to facilitate the removal of fat. Dr. Bulan can treat multiple areas at once.

Once he is satisfied with the results, Dr. Bulan applies bandages or compression dressings to any incisions made to prevent bleeding and reduce swelling. Immediately after surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room while the effects of the anesthesia wear off. Once you have been cleared, an authorized adult may take you home. You should have someone stay with you the first night following surgery.

The recovery period varies from person to person, but in general you should expect to take 2-3 days off work. You should rest and avoid any strenuous activity during this time. You may have to wear support garments for several weeks after liposuction surgery, depending on which area(s) of the body are treated. You can expect the treated area(s) to be sore, swollen, bruised and/or numb. These symptoms are normal and will subside over time. Although some of the aesthetic benefits will be noticeable after surgery, results continue to get better as any swelling and bruising in the treated area subsides.

Dr. Bulan may choose to continue to improve the overall result by incorporating non-invasive skin tightening procedures in the office. This is done to maximize the skin contraction post op. Although liposuction is a surgical procedure done at a particular day of surgery, combining this with energy based techniques during the procedure as well as postoperative truly makes this a 21st century body contouring procedure!

Before your surgery, Dr. Bulan will give you specific instructions regarding the preparation and recovery for liposuction. Please follow his instructions carefully to minimize the risk of complications and maximize the visible results.
