The process of extracting excess fat with liposuction requires some recovery time; our advanced systems have the advantage of a shorter healing time. At NYBG in New York, we are committed to assisting our patients to resculpt their bodies and remove excess fat with safe, state-of-the-art liposuction technology.

Power-Assisted Liposuction Recovery Time

Power assisted liposuction (“PAL”) reduces the physical impact of traditional lipo systems. The process involves the use of a specialized cannula (tiny hollow needle) that vibrates back and forth at high speed to gently extract fat without causing damage to the micro-vessels. This process has the added benefit of protecting the extracted cells for use in fat transfer technology to later use to plump another body or facial area.

Rest And Recover As Your New Body Shape Is Revealed.

The recovery following your liposuction in Long Island involves a few days of rest. Any discomfort can be managed with pain medication in the initial stages. Compression garments are needed for the first few weeks after the procedure to help your skin to reattach to the muscles. It is typically advised that patients avoid extensive sitting, including driving longer distances for several weeks after the procedure. Every patient heals at an individual rate, and while some are ready to return to normal activities within a few days, others may require a few weeks.

Why Choose Power Assisted Liposuction?

PAL has made performing liposuction far more effective and easy to tolerate, and offers several important advantages:

  • Less aggressive, reduced bruising and swelling
  • Precision procedure for body sculpting
  • Higher level of patient comfort
  • Cell viability for fat transfer if desired
  • Faster healing
  • Not heat based – no risk of burns

Safelipo Recovery

SAFELipo does more than remove unwanted fatty deposits; it has the added benefit of skin tightening for a precision body reshaping procedure. This procedure can be the most effective method for recontouring the body after significant weight loss with bariatric surgery.

At New York Bariatric Group, we help patients achieve a healthy weight – and a happier life – with advanced surgical and non-surgical treatments, and help them achieve the smooth, trim body they envision. SAFELipo can be used on a range of body areas for a versatile and effective Long Island body contouring treatment.

Fast Recovery Time With Safelipo

The recovery time varies, depending upon the number of areas treated. Most patients can return to work after a few days and feel back to themselves in only a week or so. After two weeks, in most cases, patients can go back to a usual exercise routine. You may be a candidate for this state-of-the-art liposuction treatment, which is appropriate for adults who are within 30 percent of an ideal weight, have good muscle tone, and who are generally healthy.
