Mommy Makeover #3 Liposuction

Many of my patients at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery on Long Island started out extremely fit before children, but after pregnancies are … a little bit less so.  There’s a lot more time available to work out and eat carefully before you have the responsibilities of raising kids of your own.

For these moms on Long Island, liposuction can be the solution they are looking for. Hips and thighs that have gotten a little bit out of control can be tamed by the liposuction wand.

As always, diet and exercise are important parts of staying healthy and looking great. So I prefer that my plastic surgery patients come in close to their ideal achievable weight prior to their procedure. And let’s emphasize the word “achievable.”

These are before and after photographs of a mom who had liposuction on her inner and outer thighs.

Same Patient after Power-Assisted Liposuction

For most liposuction surgeries I use the power-assisted method.  With this technique a surgical motor rapidly moves the liposuction wand forward and back about a third of an inch.

That allows me to focus my energy on gently guiding the wand, giving more control to the process, and often less bruising.

In recent years I have added laser liposuction, using the Lipolyte system.  This laser helps to tighten the skin, and is most useful, for some patients, in the neck, upper arms, and inner thighs.

But whatever areas are troublesome, do not despair. Sometimes part of the answer is a brief outpatient liposuction procedure at our Huntington, New York plastic surgery practice.

For some moms on Long Island, Liposuction is combined with Tummy Tuck or Breast Augmentation.  Correcting a few areas at once can be a real home run.
