Liposuction Performed by Boston Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Bartlett
Liposuction is one the most popular plastic surgery procedures because it is highly effective in removing unwanted fatty deposits and recovery is rapid. However, it is not a weight loss strategy and patients who are significantly overweight are not candidates for the procedure.
Liposuction surgery must be performed with care to assure the best result and minimize problems. Richard A. Bartlett, M.D. is known for his meticulous and careful approach when using liposuction to treat problem areas where fatty deposits often occur. During your liposuction consultation at his Boston-based practice, he will identify areas for treatment. As with every cosmetic surgery, Dr. Bartlett applies his usual perfectionism and aesthetic eye when performing liposuction to sculpt fatty tissue and create a smooth, pleasing contour.
Liposuction – What to Expect
- About the Surgery – liposuction can address fat pads on the hips, thighs, abdomens, arms, neck and other areas of the body
- Surgical Setting – the procedure can be performed at Dr. Bartlett’s cosmetic surgery center or at a Boston area hospital
- Anesthesia – local, intravenous sedation or general anesthetic may be used, depending on your preference
- Post Surgery – patients are required to wear a compression garment for up to 3 weeks to speed the healing process. Bruising is present for several weeks. Most patients need no more than a week off from work. With small liposuction procedures less time is required for recovery
