Lunchtime Lipo in Long Island

Minimally Invasive Fat Reduction

Lunchtime Lipo refers to a type of liposuction done under local anesthesia to permanently eliminate small stubborn areas of fat. This form of liposuction is FDA Approved and can be performed to safely and effectively remove small areas of excess fat from the body with less blood loss and quicker healing. The procedure causes little or no discomfort, and is fast, immediate and cost effective.

Dr. Gallagher recommends this FDA-approved liposuction procedure for healthy, active men and women who want to quickly remove fat and sculpt specific problem areas in the thighs, hips, buttocks, stomach, arms, back, chest, ankles, and calves. Most procedures can be done in about 1 hour.

Dr. Gallagher will provide you with thorough preparation guidelines before your procedure. If you are a smoker, you will be required to quit smoking two weeks before and after. She will also mention that any blood thinning medications are stopped such as Advil® or ibuprofen, Aleve® etc.

Recovery is very quick. You will see more improvement each day as your swelling subsides and your skin heals and tones. Complete recovery can be expected in just a few short weeks, and you can typically resume your normal routine immediately. In most cases you will need to avoid strenuous activity for a short period of time after surgery. Dr. Gallagher advised that patients wait a week before returning to strenuous exercise.

As with all liposuction procedures, Lunchtime Liposuction risks may include bleeding or infection, and minor skin irregularities upon healing. Complete risks will be discussed during your consultation.

The results of the procedure are permanent. Should you gain weight after the procedure, you may notice excess fat in other parts of your body. Dr. Gallagher urges patients to maintain a healthy weight and stay dedicated to eating right and exercising regularly to prolong satisfaction with their newly sculpted body.
