The Top Lipedema Specialists in New York City
Elite Body Sculpture, the founders of AirSculpt technology, understand the fat removal can be an easy and comfortable process.
This fat removal process is also able to tackle patients that have lipedema specifically.
What is Lipedema?
Lipedema is a condition in which excess fat accumulates in the lower part of the body, like the buttocks, thighs, and calves. In some instances, the upper arms are also affected.
Lipedema's exact cause is unknown, but there is evidence that the condition is genetically transmitted. It almost exclusively occurs in women, worsening around puberty, pregnancy, and menopause.
That being said, lipedema is very likely to be linked to hormones. The condition is not a by-product of obesity; nevertheless, the majority of lipedema contractors are obese.
A troubling aspect of lipedema is that if you lose weight, the areas affected by the condition do not change.
How Is Lipedema Usually Treated?
Liposuction is the primary lipedema treatment. More specifically, the liposuction variants that are utilized are tumescent liposuction and water-assisted liposuction.
Tumescent liposuction consists of a tumescent solution applied to the subcutaneous tissues, causing the fat cells to swell and the vessels to constrict. The surgeon proceeds to use a cannula to remove the fat.
Water-assisted liposuction uses a pressure spray of tumescent fluid to separate the fat from the connective tissue, removing the need for a cannula.
Are These Liposuction Variants Optimal?
Traditional liposuction can be used to treat lipedema. Yet, Elite Body Sculpture's version of fat removal, even though it uses a local anesthetic and tumescent solutions like others, is incomparable in results and recovery.
Why is that? Because of Elite Body Sculpture's patented AirSculpt technology, lipedema can be treated without a scalpel, needle, stitches, or general anesthesia. Our cannula also isn't reminiscent of the cheese-grater-like cannula that traditional liposuction uses; it's a technological advancement that offers a comfortable experience and precise results.
How Does An AirSculpt Treatment Go?
AirSculpt's optimal lipedema treatment functions as follows:
- The Elite Body Sculpture physician will numb the treated areas with the AirPen, a squirt gun-like device that applies pressurized air to administer a tumescent solution.
- Afterward, the lipedema specialist forms a perfectly symmetrical two millimeter-wide hole with a biopsy punch and utilizes laser technology to prepare the excess fat for extraction.
- The patented AirSculpt cannula is then used, swiftly plucking the fat cell by cell from the area.
- The tiny aperture is naturally left to heal naturally, with no stitches needed.
An Unmatched Recovery Process
AirSculpt treatments, aside from giving you immediate results, don't force you to undergo a lengthy recovery process.
It's recommended that you rest for at least a day; nonetheless, you're able to attend that already-planned dinner party the very same night.
All that's required is that you wear compression garments for around two weeks.
