Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States. Dr. Prasad performs many procedures every week using the most advanced technology and innovative liposuction techniques available today. Dr. Prasad’s goal is to achieve the best body contouring results with the shortest amount of down time.
Liposuction techniques are designed to contour your body by removing unwanted fat and inches from areas such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms and chin. Liposuction is not a replacement for diet or exercise, but it helps selected patients get rid of stubborn areas that do not respond to other weight loss methods. With weight loss, the fat cells in your body only shrink – they do not disappear. Liposuction actually removes the fat cells from your body.
Dr. Prasad’s Innovative Liposuction Techniques
Dr. Prasad uses a combination of liposuction techniques to achieve the best possible results for his patients. He starts by injecting the patient with ”tumescent” fluid. The fluid contains a local anesthetic within the solution so that the area to be worked on is anesthetized, but the patient remains awake throughout the procedure. The tumescent liposuction technique allows for quicker removal of the fat with less bruising.
Dr. Prasad is also one of the first surgeons in New York to use the advanced Cool Lipo system. When used together, tumescent and Cool Lipo result in a smooth contour and quick recovery with minimal pain or bruising. With this new liposuction technique, there is a noticeable difference in your body contour almost immediately. The small amount of swelling that results immediately after the surgery will continue to subside for a few months. Your new contour will remain permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you gain weight after your liposuction surgery, the weight will distribute itself evenly throughout your body and will not settle in the same problem areas.
The Cool Lipo procedure uses one of the safest and most effective liposuction techniques because it is performed without general anesthesia. Cool Lipo is an out-patient procedure that allows patients to avoid a lengthy hospital stay. This is another key benefit to Dr. Prasad’s liposuction techniques. Many surgeons perform liposuction under general anesthesia. Dr. Prasad believes it is much safer and produces a much better result for the patient if local anesthesia with light sedation is used. Since the patient is awake during the procedure, the muscle tone remains intact and more predictable results are produced.
