Common_Types_Of_LiposuctionHow often has this happened to you: you step on the scale in the morning, check out the numbers, and wish that you could just zap that fat away with some liposuction? Morristown patients often come to us hoping that a little liposuction will help them achieve their weight goals. However, despite what many people think, liposuction is not really an effective way to lose weight and we’ll explain why below.

If you’ve tried dieting and exercise but haven’t been able to get the body shape that you want, then you could be a great candidate for liposuction. Morristown men and women have been able to get outstanding, life changing results working with Dr. Comizio. As a Harvard-educated surgeon, Dr. Comizio has built her practice by listening to her patients and working with them to develop a treatment plan that makes them feel comfortable, safe, and confident.

Treatment Options for Liposuction

Morristown patients considering liposuction have several important considerations to make before their procedure. Below we’ve put together some of the most critical information for you to think about.

Before the Procedure

Like we mentioned above, liposuction isn’t intended for weight loss. Instead, it is designed to sculpt your body to the shape that you want. Because of that, prior to your liposuction procedure we recommend that patients do their absolute best to get to their desired weight.

Here’s why that’s so important: after your liposuction procedure it will be much easier for you to maintain your results if you’ve already achieved the weight you want to be at. During your consultation with Dr. Comizio, she will discuss this aspect of your liposuction procedure in detail with you.

Types of Liposuction

Morristown patients will have the option to have their liposuction performed at an outpatient surgery center or at a hospital. While there are different types of liposuction, the type of liposuction that Dr. Comizio performs uses a “cannula”, which is a small tube that sucks up any fat pockets.

During the procedure, Dr. Comizio will use the details of your consultation to guide her as she uses the cannula to remove fat and shape your body to meet your goals.

Recovering from Liposuction

Morristown patients should expect their liposuction recovery to take several weeks. But most patients can return to most of their normal activities after one week. You should expect to experience some pain, swelling, and bruising. Dr. Comizio will recommend compression garments to control any fluid that could collect there.

We know that starting to consider liposuction can sometimes be intimidating. We would love to help put your mind at ease so give us a call today at (973) 775-9248. We can answer any questions that you have and also setup a private consultation with Dr. Comizio at your convenience. We can’t wait to meet you and help you get the body you’ve dreamed of!
