Schedule Fat Removal Today & Be Swim Suit Ready By Summer!
Spring falls on NYC at 11:33 AM this Sunday – which means the sunny days of summer will officially be here in a short few months. And that gives our NYC patients the perfect amount of time to lose the fat and get swim-suit-ready with one of the amazing, affordable and effective fat loss treatments available at Goldenberg Dermatology in NYC. We offer the latest, most effective technologies in non-invasive and minimally-invasive fat removal and body sculpting for women and men.
One of our favorite fat removal treatments is “SculpSure” – an innovative technology that uses laser energy to permanently “melt” unwanted fat from the abdomen, love handles, back, thighs, and even the chin! SculpSure is ideal for busy New Yorkers, because it is non-invasive – so it comes with no side effects and no downtime.
And, for even more dramatic fat removal results, we also offer laser-assisted BeautiFill Liposuction. This amazing technology allows Dr. Goldenberg to remove stubborn fat from unwanted areas (such as the belly, thighs, ‘muffin tops’, etc.) – and then use the fat to plump up areas where more volume is desired. Both treatments take a number of weeks to reveal the complete, permanent fat loss results. So, NOW is the perfect time to schedule treatments to see full results by swim suit season!
In this article board certified NYC dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldenberg discusses patients fat removal options and explains the difference between BeautiFill Laser Liposuction and SculpSure laser fat loss.
Liposuction Fat Removal
Liposuction is a minimally-invasive, permanent, surgical fat removal procedure. But there a many different liposuction technologies – and they are not all “created equal.”
Goldenberg Dermatology in NYC offers liposuction using the state-of-the-art BeautiFill Laser Lipo System. By combining laser technology with suction, BeautiFill Laser Lipo patients are able to enjoy significantly shorter treatment time, as well as less pain, very minimal bruising, and best of all, a much swifter recovery than older, traditional lipo procedures.
Lipo requires anesthetic before small incisions are made in the body and a narrow tube called a cannula is inserted. The BeautiFill cannula delivers laser energy that liquifies the fat cells before suctioning them from the body. This makes the process less aggressive and much more comfortable than “manual” (non-laser) liposuction – which results in less discomfort and less swelling and bruising afterwards.
Most BeautiFill lipo sessions are between one hour and two hours – depending upon the size of the area to be treated, the number of areas to be treated, and the amount of fat to be removed. Mild pain or discomfort following BeautiFill lipo typically only lasts a couple days, and can generally be managed with over the counter medications such as ibuprofen. Most patients are advised not to drive for 24 hours and typically choose to take 2 or 3 days off work. Exercise and strenuous activity should also be avoided for a week or so after liposuction.
While lipo fat removal results are immediate, some swelling still accompanies BeautiFill liposuction. The swelling can take 4 to 6 weeks to completely subside – which makes Spring the perfect time to undergo BeautiFill lipo – for fully visible results by summer.
One of the biggest advantages of BeautiFill lipo is that only a single treatment is needed. And, while liposuction is not a weight loss method per se, up to 11 pounds of fat can typically be removed from most patients in a single treatment. Liposuction fat removal is also permanent and the fat cells will never return to the treated areas.
And, don’t forget that state-of-the-art BeautiFill lipo also enables you to use the removed fat to enhance other areas of the body that need a bit of plumping, such as the breast or buttocks.
SculpSure Laser Fat Removal
Like BeautiFill liposuction, Sculpture fat removal is also permanent. However, SculpSure is non-surgical, so there are no incisions, and no anesthesia is needed. Instead, SculpSure uses laser energy to heat the fat cells underneath the skin, without affecting the outer layers of skin. The heat “kills” the fat cells and they are flushed out of the body over time through the body’s natural elimination process.
SculpSure laser fat removal treatments only take about 25 minutes, and there is virtually no downtime – and no pain, soreness or swelling during or after the procedure. Patients can drive themselves home and resume their normal daily activities immediately. They can even go back to work or go the gym after their treatment. Additionally, SculpSure is generally a more “budget friendly” option than lipo.
However, while BeautiFill Lipo only requires a single treatment, SculpSure typically requires a series of fat loss treatments. On average, SculpSure removes 20 to 24% of localized fat cells in the treated area per session. So, after three treatments, about 70% of targeted fat cells can be eliminated with SculpSure.
Because the destroyed fat cells must be eliminated over time, it takes about 6 weeks to see visible fat removal results of SculpSure. And final fat loss results become visible around 12 weeks post treatment, once the body has completely eliminated the dead fat cells. So, to achieve the most dramatic fat loss results by the time you pull out those bikinis or swim trunks, Spring is the perfect time to get started on SculpSure treatments.
SculpSure & Lipo Fat Removal – NYC
While some patients prefer SculpSure fat loss over liposuction because it is non-surgical, painless, and there is no downtime – others love the immediate and dramatic one-and-done results of BeautiFill lipo. The great thing about a fat removal consultation at Goldenberg Dermatology in NYC is that we offer both treatments – so we can help you decide which one is right for your lifestyle, budget and fat removal goals.
