Always up-to-date on the latest technologies and techniques, Dr. Cutolo will discuss your options with you during your consultation – guiding you through the techniques that are “gimmicks” and those that are “tried and true” that will safely yield the most consistent and best results! He also will provide you with details on what to expect during the surgery.
To keep you comfortable throughout your procedure, Dr. Cutolo performs liposuction with general anesthesia or local anesthesia. After making a tiny incision, he inserts a narrow tube, known as a cannula, to sculpt and remove the fatty tissue in the treatment area. He then closes the incisions meticulously to minimize scarring, using a compression dressing or bandage to reduce swelling and provide support. The procedure usually lasts 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the extent of the procedure.
