Case #4 Details
This 31-year-old professional dancer was interested in having liposuction on Long Island to re-shape her buttocks, hips and thighs. A New York City resident, she was referred by a friend and had her consultation at our office to talk about her options. She knew a lot about exercise and nutrition, and the only fat on her body was centered around her buttocks.
Examining this young woman, she showed fantastic muscle tone, and her skin had great elasticity. At 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 135 pounds, she was in great shape, but felt her hips and thighs were not as sleek as the rest of her figure. And she did have some excess fat at her outer thighs, and upper buttocks/ hips. She also had a tiny bit of extra fat on her inner thighs.
We recommended she undergo liposuction at our practice, which we do using the power assisted liposuction machine (or PAL). The PAL gently oscillates the liposuction cannulae forward and back, reducing the trauma of liposuction. This young woman had minimal discomfort after surgery, taking only Advil and Tylenol for pain. It is always interesting to note that people who exercise a lot have a higher pain threshold, need less strong pain medication, and recover more quickly.
We all agreed she had a great result, demonstrated by the improved contours of her figure. The line of her body flows uninterrupted from upper to lower, giving her a lean, sleek look.
