Before and After Photos

Precise Techniques

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a procedure in which fat deposits are sucked out using a surgical vacuum or syringe through a tube called a cannula. The doctor will make a small incision through which he will insert the cannula and use a gentle sweeping motion to loosen the fat in your problem areas. While most plastic surgeons use standard surgical cannulas to remove the fat during a liposuction procedure, Dr. Racanelli has perfected the process using custom-made tools. He uses cannulas that are much smaller and thinner than standard, which results in fewer scars and more exact contours. In addition, Dr. Racanelli will select incision points in areas that are easily concealed. His precise techniques can help remove and smooth out excess fat stored in target areas of your body.

Complementing his custom-made instruments, Dr. Racanelli employs VASER energy for high-definition liposuction. This advanced technique enhances the sculpting process, unveiling muscle tone and curves. By utilizing VASER energy to melt fat prior to liposuction, Dr. Racanelli ensures a safer procedure, minimizing bleeding and facilitating fat removal with greater precision.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How much does liposuction cost in NJ?

The cost of liposuction is subject to variability based on several factors. Primarily, the duration of the surgery and the number of areas targeted for liposuction play key roles in determining the overall cost.

Key Cost Determinants:

Surgical Duration:
The time required for the liposuction procedure is a significant factor influencing costs. Longer surgical durations may result in increased expenses.

Number of Treatments:
The more areas of the body where liposuction is performed, the greater the complexity of the procedure. This, in turn, can contribute to additional costs.

Hourly Charges for Hospital and Anesthesia:
Hospital and anesthesia charges are billed on an hourly basis. Therefore, the amount of fat to be removed and the number of areas undergoing liposuction directly impact the overall cost of the surgery.

Our commitment is to provide transparent information about the factors influencing liposuction costs. For personalized consultations and to obtain detailed pricing based on your specific needs, please contact our team.

How much weight will I lose with liposuction?

It is crucial to have a clear understanding that liposuction is not a surgical procedure designed for weight loss. Instead, liposuction is a targeted approach to address specific areas where fat accumulates due to genetic predisposition or resistant fat pockets that persist despite efforts in diet and exercise.

Key Points to Consider:

Precision in Fat Removal:
Liposuction is a precision procedure intended to remove localized fat deposits. It is not intended as a comprehensive weight loss solution.

Genetic Fat Distribution:
The technique is particularly effective for genetically predetermined fat storage areas that may vary from person to person.

Resistant Fat Pockets:
Liposuction is a suitable option for addressing stubborn pockets of fat that prove challenging to eliminate through traditional means like diet and exercise.

It is our goal to ensure that individuals considering liposuction have realistic expectations and a comprehensive understanding of the procedure’s intended outcomes.

How much fat will liposuction remove?

It’s important to recognize that the extent of fat removed through liposuction is highly individualized and depends on the patient’s current fat distribution in the specific body area undergoing treatment. Liposuction is designed to target subcutaneous fat, which is the fat located beneath the skin, as opposed to visceral fat found in and around the organs.

Key Considerations:

Patient-Specific Fat Removal:
The amount of fat removed is contingent upon the patient’s unique anatomy and the volume of fat present in the targeted body part.

Subcutaneous Fat Focus:
Liposuction is specifically tailored to address subcutaneous fat, providing contouring and shaping benefits by targeting fat deposits beneath the skin.

Exclusion of Visceral Fat:
It’s important to note that liposuction does not address visceral fat surrounding internal organs. This procedure is not intended for comprehensive weight loss or the reduction of internal organ fat.

Our commitment is to provide personalized and realistic expectations for individuals considering liposuction. For detailed consultations and to explore how liposuction can align with your aesthetic goals, please contact our knowledgeable team at the practice of Dr. Racanelli.

After liposuction will the fat grow back?

It’s crucial to grasp that liposuction delivers permanent results by removing fat cells from the treated area. Consequently, if weight is gained after liposuction, the body tends to accumulate fat in areas where liposuction was not performed initially, before impacting the treated areas.

Key Points to Consider:

Permanent Fat Cell Removal:
Liposuction provides lasting results by permanently eliminating fat cells in the treated area. This enhances body contouring and reshaping.

Weight Gain Dynamics:
Subsequent weight gain typically manifests in areas where liposuction was not performed initially, preserving the sculpted appearance achieved through the procedure.

Maintaining Results:
To sustain and optimize liposuction results, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, is essential.
Understanding these dynamics is crucial for individuals undergoing liposuction to manage expectations and make informed choices about post-procedure care.
