Liposuction Conveniently located to serve Sussex County and Warren County

Defining Liposuction: Commonly referred to as lipo

Liposuction is a procedure that can:

  • Permanently remove fat from under the skin

During the liposuction procedure, fat deposits are mechanically broken up and removed with the help of vacuum suction. Dr. Rafailov utilizes the well-studied technique of local tumescent anesthesia. This technique greatly reduces pain and any potential bleeding complications. Liposuction may be done in most areas of the body and achieves permanent reduction of fat.

Dr. Rafailov is an expert in liposuction procedure and has performed hundreds of suction assisted and power assisted liposuction cases. Liposuction may be performed in the following body areas:

Chin Abdomen Flanks (love handles)
Lower back Upper back Back and bra rolls
Thighs Hips Knees
Arms Mons pubis (aka FUPA: Fat upper pubic area) Calves and ankles

To learn if this procedure is right for you, make an appointment and our doctor will help you decide if this procedure may accomplish your desired outcomes.

Benefits of Liposuction

  • Removes fat from the body that results in a slimmer, toned appearance

Good Candidates for Liposuction

You may be a good candidate for liposuction if:

  • You are at least 18 years old
  • You are in good physical health
  • You are bothered by excess fat located anywhere on your body that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise

Planning for Liposuction

Come prepared to explain your expectations and potential concerns with our doctor during your consultation. You will have the opportunity to highlight your desired outcomes and the doctor will recommend a course of treatment that will most likely help you achieve those outcomes.

In order to recommend an appropriate procedure, we will first evaluate your general health status and examine you. We will also obtain a list of your medical conditions, drug allergies, and use of current medications, vitamins, and supplements, as well as your consumption of alcohol, tobacco or illicit drug use.

Preparing for Liposuction

Prior to your procedure, you will be given a list of instructions to follow in regards to eating, drinking, smoking, medication use and physical activity. You will also have to plan for another individual to be available to drive you home after your procedure.

Recovering from Liposuction

After your liposuction procedure, you will be given a list of instructions to follow for your recovery and you will schedule a follow-up appointment with your surgeon.

You will be instructed to stay hydrated and move around throughout the day the week after your procedure. Most patients are back to work and daily activity in about 3 days.

As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness, but most of your improvement from liposuction should be relatively permanent

Important Considerations of Your Liposuction

  • Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise
  • Liposuction is not an effective treatment for cellulite or loose saggy skin

Cost of Liposuction

The cost of liposuction is specific to each individual patient due to the uniqueness of each patient’s needs and desired outcomes. This is an elective surgery and is rarely covered by health insurance. NJ Aesthetic & Cosmetic Surgery offers several payment options including cash, check, and credit. Financing options are available via CareCredit.
