About the Procedure
What is Liposuction?

Liposuction surgery is a type of cosmetic intervention that safely removes excess fat from various areas of the body and face that is resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Danovich has performed numerous creative and aesthetically pleasing liposuction procedures on her patients. Every procedure is ALWAYS tailored to your unique needs, desires, and dreams to look stunning. “Beauty comes naturally but it’s hard to be stunning by accident!” says Svetlana M. Danovich MD.

Liposuction is a highly successful method that re-contours your body by addressing specific areas of concerns in conjunction with a healthy, low calorie, highly balanced diet and personalized exercise regimen postoperatively. “There is no substitute for hard work. It takes two hands to clap: I work hard with perfection on my part, you apply maximum efforts from your end, and we will both succeed! It can ONLY occur when your dreams get bigger than your excuses!” says Dr. Danovich.

The most commonly re sculptured areas in women are the chin, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, knees, arms, back, and buttocks. Areas that men typically want to address with liposuction are the neck, chin, abdomen, “love handles,” and chest / (gynecomastia).

How is the Liposuction Done

Liposuction is an ambulatory/outpatient procedure that can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with or without IV sedation, depending upon the technique used and the extent of the procedure.

Prior to your surgery, precise preoperative instructions will be provided, and all necessary prescriptions will be given to you. All Aspirin and/or aspirin-contained products as well as Ibuprofen, Aleve, Advil or any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs must be discontinued two weeks before surgery. You may take Tylenol if needed. You will also be given Arnica Forte (Arnica Montana 30x, Bromelain, Antioxidants, Bioflavonoids) to take prior to and after your surgery to promote healing and limit bruising, swelling and pain associated with procedure.

The small incisions are made in inconspicuous locations to accommodate a very small cannula into the skin. Using the popular tumescent liposuction technique, fluid/numbing solution is added to reduce bleeding and pain. During the procedure, patients usually report a vibrating or tickling sensation and some mild pressure as Dr. Danovich shapes and contours your body by removing excess fat in layers until a precise improvement is made.

Recovery
How Long Does Liposuction Recovery Take?

If your liposuction procedure is performed under local anesthesia, you can bounce back to your daily activity more quickly without feeling groggy and /or sleepy than after procedures performed under general anesthesia. Your tiny (less than 2 mm) incisions will be covered with bandages and absorbable pads to protect your clothes. You will have some leaking of “pinkish” fluid from the incisions for roughly 12-24 hours – this is simply a numbing solution that was used during the procedure. Dr. Danovich prescribes Lymphatic Drainage Therapy/Massage after liposuction. This is to make sure our patients get the best possible results from their procedure by moving fluid back into the lymph vessels to significantly reduce swelling, discomfort and exponentially expedite the recovery.

How soon can I exercise after liposuction?

We advise taking it easy for a week to ten days after the procedure or until you feel comfortable enough to resume your exercise routine.

Risks
What are the Liposuction Risks?

Liposuction in the hands of Dr. Danovich is a very safe procedure, but some minimal risks should be taken into consideration during the decision making process to have liposuction surgery such as infection, bleeding, skin irregularities and asymmetry which are discussed with you in detail during your consultation.

Patients experiencing any concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Danovich’s cell phone promptly.

Immediately after the procedure you will notice a significant improvement in the areas where fat was removed on the day of your procedure; and in a few weeks, you will see even greater enhancement as swelling subsides and the skin adjusts to your body’s new shape. It is fundamentally important to understand that liposuction removes fat, but not cellulite or excess skin. In just a few short weeks, your liposuction will be a distant memory, and you will be more confident in your own appearance and performance. “Confidence is beautiful to feel and look good!” says Dr. Danovich.

How long will my Liposuction results last?

Liposuction fat removal will give you long lasting results. Fat cells will not re-accumulate in the areas where liposuction was done due to postoperative scar tissue and fibrosis formation, though weight gain in other parts of the body is certainly plausible. In order to protect your investment and avoid undesired weight gain, you need to apply some effort by eating right and exercising on a daily basis. From our end, we go above and beyond to educate and guide you every step of the way to achieve the best results possible. Dr. Danovich ALWAYS emphasizes that “Hard Work + Dreams + Dedication = Success”
