Dr. Joel Schlessinger provides insight to an in-demand procedure: liposuction.
New You Mag features the bio of Dr. Joel Schlessinger, including his top procedures, his practice, his degrees and affiliations and more.
According to Dr. Joel Schlessinger in the feature, “Since starting my practice in 1992, I have enjoyed being on the forefront of medical and cosmetic research and trends, developing lasers, cosmeceuticals and new forms of cosmetic surgery.”
His top procedures are listed as follows:
- Tumescent Liposuction/SmartLipo
- Skin Cancer Surgery/Mohs Surgery
- Laser Procedures
- General Dermatology
- Cosmetic Dermatology
- Pediatric Dermatology
- Tattoo Removal
It would take far more than one blog post to discuss each of these top specialties, but the next two posts will focus on one specific procedure.
Focus on liposuction: there is a significant amount of helpful information about this in-demand procedure at LovelySkin.com.
Liposuction is a treatment that contours the body (rather than treating obesity) by removing unwanted localized fat cell deposits from the body. Dr. Joel Schlessinger does not perform traditional liposuction; rather, he performs tumescent/SmartLipo that greatly reduces safety concerns associated with the surgery.
With tumescent liposuction, large amounts of sterile salt water, local anesthesia and diluted epinephrine are infused into the focus area of the body. This causes this area to swell and become anesthetized. The doctor then uses a cannula to vacuum out unwanted fat. Because the cannula is so small, discomfort is greatly minimized and recovery time is significantly reduced.
In SmartLipo, the doctor uses a laser. For more information about how the use of laser enhances tumescent liposuction (through the melting of unwanted fat), see the American Academy of Dermatology article on liposuction.
The doctor’s patients are typically back to work and participating in daily activities within 24 hours or so with minimal bruising.
