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 utilize 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 Basics Behind Cool Liposuction
Cool Lipo is one of the newest technologies offered by Dr. Prasad. Cool Liposuction is virtually painless and highly effective at removing unwanted body fat. The procedure involves laser-assisted lipolysis, a minimally invasive technology that liquefies fat for easy removal. This laser-based procedure breaks up and removes fat cells in areas such as under the chin, neck, and jowls or areas with loose skin such as the arms.
The Benefits of Cool Lipo
One of the key benefits of Cool Lipo is that the unique wavelength of the Cool Lipo laser system directly contracts collagen and tightens the skin, an effect not seen with standard liposuction. Dr. Prasad can target the laser energy to the dermal layer under your skin, causing the collagen in the sub-surface layer to shrink and stimulate new collagen production. This provides an improvement in skin tightening over the next several months after the procedure.
The Cool Liposuction laser can easily differentiate between fat cells and other tissue such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, etc. Because of the innovative technology behind Cool Lipo, there is often less scarring than with traditional liposuction. Once the Cool Lipo laser dissolves the fat cells, they are simply suctioned out of the body.
Cool Lipo may be used almost anywhere in the body. In addition, a general anesthetic is not necessary, so the Cool Liposuction procedure may take place in the physician’s office instead of a hospital.
The History of Cool Lipo
Cool Lipo was first discovered in Europe and is now provided in the USA. This new liposuction technique has been utilized extensively throughout Europe, South America and Asia over the past ten years. And now, Dr. Prasad is one of the first surgeons to bring Cool Lipo to patients in New York.
