My Liposuction Story - A Patients Personal Journey
Our patient is sharing her personal liposuction story. This is the first chapter.
One of my friends told me about Dr. Goldfarb, who did her liposuction last year, and she had a great experience. I decided to call his office for a consultation to get his opinion and ask more questions. Here is what I have learned. There is plain liposuction, and laser liposuction. I now know the difference and found out that with laser liposuction, the results are smoother and my skin would be tighter. This is the difference. Both treatments remove fat, but with liposuction the fat is sucked out in little chunks, which could leave me looking a bit lumpy. Laser liposuction heats the fat before it is sucked out . Think of trying to remove pieces of cold butter versus butter at room temperature. Also, the laser "wand" is used under the skin to tighten it up, sort of like running my blow dryer over plastic wrap - it shrinks the skin! Dr. Goldfarb uses a laser called SmartLipo, which I have read quite a bit about, and seems to be regarded as the best out there. Of course, who does the procedure is most important.
During my consultation, Dr. Goldfarb met with me to look at my areas that bothered me, we discussed the entire procedure at great length and he answered all of my questions. I was nervous and probably asked the same thing several times, but Dr. Goldfarb and his wonderful staff were kind and patient and made me feel completely at ease. After meeting them, I made the decision that I wanted him to help me get the shape I wanted.
