If you are seeking a body-contouring procedure with minimal downtime, then in-office liposuction in New Haven may be an excellent option for you. In-office lipo addresses stubborn areas that dieting and exercise cannot slim down or tone. Additionally, it offers a more convenient and comfortable choice for patients than hospital-based lipo.
As the name suggests, in-office liposuction is done in Dr. John Reilly’s relaxing office environment. It involves inserting a thin tube called a cannula to suction fat from the target areas. In-office lipo is minimally invasive since tiny incisions are created to insert the cannula. It can be performed while the patient is awake under local anesthesia.
You may be a good candidate for in-office lipo if you have stubborn deposits of excess fat that do not respond to any exercise regimen or diet program. It is important to be within range of your ideal weight, with no fluctuations in body weight six months prior. Patients should also have good muscle tone and relatively elastic skin. Ideally, the patient should be a non-smoker in good overall health with a positive outlook. If you have underlying conditions or life-threatening illnesses, you may not be recommended to undergo this procedure.
Liposuction at Dr. Reilly’s office is very similar to liposuction done in a hospital setting. Dr. Reilly will meet with you before the surgery to talk about your goals and perform an exam to make sure this procedure is right for you. He’ll provide a tremendous amount of information and also offer other options for treatment if appropriate, so you will get the best results possible.
On the day of the procedure, you’ll come to Dr. Reilly’s office driven by a friend or family member, as medications are prescribed to reduce any anxiety regarding the procedure. Using his skill and experience, Dr. Reilly will make sure you are comfortable during the procedure by injecting local anesthesia into the areas to be treated. Soft lighting and music help make the procedure comfortable for you. He will then carefully remove fat from the areas you targeted. Any fat cells he removes will not return. Once the procedure is complete, you’ll return home with detailed instructions and pain medication if needed. Before you go home, Dr. Reilly will make sure you fully understand how to take care of yourself after the procedure. Your results will be immediate and will improve over the following weeks.
The recovery period following your in-office liposuction surgery is not lengthy and only requires minimal downtime. Swelling and bruising are commonly experienced but may be alleviated by wearing a post-surgical garment. Discomfort and pain are normal and can be managed with medications as directed. These symptoms should resolve quickly after a few days.Normal activities can be resumed as soon as you feel comfortable. Light activities and proper hydration are encouraged after the treatment to achieve the best results.
I have nothing but positive things to say about my lipo experience with Dr. Reilly and his team! The entire staff is welcoming and accommodating, and Dr. Reilly did a great job with my procedure. Highly recommend!ct0931
