Liposuction may be the solution to your weight loss problem. Many people struggle to maintain their weight throughout an entire lifetime. Others are unable to shed the pounds after a specific event, such as pregnancy. Despite engaging in a healthy diet and regular exercise, excess fat can sometimes refuse to burn, and lipo may be required. If you are a size eight or more and have been struggling to lose weight for an extended period of time, large volume liposuction may be the key to losing two to three sizes at one time. Dr. Sharon Giese offers large volume lipo at her Manhattan office to healthy, active patients struggling with weight loss.

For a liposuction procedure to qualify as “large volume,” seven pounds or more of fat must be suctioned from the body. For patients who are 50 pounds overweight, an in-depth analysis of health, age, weight, weight patterns, exercise and motivation are evaluated to determine whether each individual candidates is suitable for the procedure. In some cases, pre-surgery weight loss is necessary before you may qualify for large volume lipo as weight loss can help to ensure that your procedure produces the best possible results.
Large volume liposuction is completed under general anesthesia and can take anywhere from three to four hours depending on the number of areas being addressed and the volume of fat being extracted. In addition to fat removal, Dr. Giese performs the surgery with the help of ultrasound assisted liposuction (UAL) to tighten skin as well as remove the persistent fat deposits. This advanced ultrasound technique will stimulate the production of collagen, helping to tighten excess and sagging skin as a result of weight loss. Skin tightening will continue to improve even months after surgery as collagen production continues to increase. After receiving liposuction, you are able to return to work and daily activities within seven to ten days. Results are usually noticeable around six to eight weeks.
