Minimally Invasive Fat Reduction
$250 off Lunchtime Lipo Procedure. See our Promotions Page for more information.
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.
