An effective method of improving the shape of problem areas such as the upper arms, thighs, and abdomen, liposuction highlights your natural contours and improves your figure with smoothing and reshaping techniques. The body contains a set number of fat cells, which grow or shrink as you gain or lose weight. Liposuction actually removes fat cells from specific areas so that whether you gain or lose weight after the procedure, the treated areas will remain smooth and well contoured.
Dr. Leif Nordberg has provided unparalleled results in liposuction to his Stamford patients for years and has the skill to make your experience at Nordberg Plastic Surgery unforgettable. Please contact us for more information about the procedure or if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
Understanding the Procedure
Dr. Nordberg is highly skilled at strategically placing incisions to optimize your body’s contours while minimizing visible scarring. Liposuction is a straightforward procedure that is performed in our Stamford office while the patient is under a local anesthetic. Designed to permanently reshape your body, liposuction removes the extra bulk of the fatty layer beneath the skin and allows the skin to gradually contract, forming to your smaller figure.
Dr. Nordberg will make a discreet incision through which he will gently break up and suction excess fat deposits. The incision is then closed and the procedure is complete. In addition to the immediate results you will see after the surgery, for six to twelve months after surgery, your skin will continue to tighten, providing you with gradual improvements as well.
Full recovery usually takes a few weeks, during which you will wear post-operative bandages. Swelling and tenderness will occur but should subside quickly. Dr. Nordberg will have you return for a post-operative checkup to make sure your healing process is going well.
Dr. Nordberg goes to great lengths to examine each of his patients to determine whether liposuction is right for them. Liposuction is a fairly extensive medical procedure, and it is important to be in generally good health and have realistic expectations of the results. The best liposuction candidates have localized deposits of fat in their neck, arms, thighs, or abdomen. Resistant to the effects of diet and exercise, these deposits are often genetic. Firm, elastic skin will improve the overall result, as the tightening of skin is an effect that refines the look.
If you suffer from diabetes, circulatory problems, or lung or heart disease, liposuction may not be an option. There are a number of conditions that may disqualify you from undergoing liposuction, so consulting with Dr. Nordberg is the best way to establish your candidacy.
