The 3 Biggest Benefits of Liposuction

1. Any gender can enjoy liposuction.

Liposuction isn’t just for one gender; in fact, there are many types of liposuction surgeries designed to highlight and contour each gender’s body.

For example, Dr. Vitolo specializes in both female liposuction and male liposuction. With the latter procedure, this fat removal surgery is designed specifically to meet men’s unique cosmetic needs. 

Dr. Vitolo’s male liposuction is designed to specifically target and remove stubborn fat that won’t respond to traditional diet and exercise methods, but in a way that complements a man’s natural body shape.

2. There’s limited downtime with liposuction.

Dr. Vitolo’s patients typically return to work and most normal activities 2 to 3 days after surgery. Healing is quite quick, and many patients have their surgery on a Friday, take their compression garment and foam tapes off on Sunday, and return to work on Monday. 

Dr. Vitolo prefers that patients who have had a number of lower body areas done, wear a compression garment, which can easily be worn under clothes, for about 2 weeks, but this is optional.

3. Patients can be beach-ready in just a few weeks.

With Dr. Vitolo’s patients, liposuction results can be seen as soon as the compression garment is removed. The final results continue to develop over time, but usually, in a week or two, you can see a notable difference. Most of his patients don’t take the pain medications he prescribes, as there is minimal postoperative pain, just a little soreness for a day or two. 

“It has been one year since I made the decision to have liposuction. From beginning to end Dr. Vitolo and his staff were accommodating and professional. Everyone made me feel very comfortable and took the time to answer all of my questions. I was thinking about the procedure for awhile but after talking with Dr. Vitolo, the decision was easy. I’m an active health conscious person, but was unable to get the results I wanted with just diet and exercise. Dr. Vitolo shaped my torso and I’m very happy with results. Recovery was as expected! I think it’s important for people to know that for the best results, you really need to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.” *
