Speaking with Our Laser Liposuction NYC & Long Island Surgeons

The doctor will ask you a few questions during your initial consultation. Some of these questions will include:

  • Why do you think liposuction is right for you?
  • Do you exercise regularly and eat well?
  • Do you have any health issues?

We will also want to know if you have a large fluctuation of weight over recent years and if you diet a lot. The obvious advantage to this type of procedure is that it is much quicker in giving you the weight loss results that you want than diet and exercising alone.

You should be back to work in about 2-3 days after surgery. For some people, laser lipo may be the only type of way to get a toned a sleek physique. Laser liposuction is also quicker and less intrusive than the traditional therapy and literally “melts” fat off of you.
