"Dr. Yonick has done an amazing job from my consult, to my surgery (abdominoplasty & liposuction), to the check-ups post surgery. He was very helpful in answering all of my questions and making me feel comfortable to move forward with surgery and I am absolutely amazed by his work. Dr. Yonick has helped me achieve a look that I couldn't obtain on my own and I would recommend him to any of my friends and family.

Liposuction is a good procedure for those who are at a healthy weight, but have pesky areas of fat that have been hard to lose with exercise and diet. Women and men contemplating liposuction should have skin that is taut because liposuction does not address loose or sagging skin. It is also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer for losing weight. Women having liposuction should be past pregnancies as this could compromise the results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Yonick will convey realistic expectations.
Surgical liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin and a cannula will be placed in the incision. The cannula is a tube that helps loosen the fat as it is being removed. Once the chosen amounts of fat have been suctioned out, Dr. David Yonick will close the incision. Depending on the number of areas receiving treatment, your surgery could last 1 – 3 hours. In the dedicated recovery area, your post-op team will help manage any pain and care for your incision until your discharge.
What to Expect
You may need to recover at home from lipo for 1 – 3 weeks depending on the number of areas treated and the size of the treatment area. It is normal to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and you may have the sutures removed on day 7 to day 10. What is most important after having lipo surgery is to allow your body time to recover and rest. When you are ready to return to work after your procedure, you need to remember to go slow. To build up your strength, stick to short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Yonick. Bear in mind you may have some changes after six weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is attained.
