In addition to offering advanced treatments for smooth, healthy, skin, Bodian Dermatology & Medical Day Spa also offers body-contouring procedures to help patients lose excess fat. Mesotherapy and liposuction are performed at our practice serving Long Island, Manhattan, and Queens to help tone trim areas on the body that do not respond well to diet and exercise.
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical treatment for the removal of excess fat deposits and cellulite. In this technique, a special formula of medications and plant extracts is injected into the targeted treatment areas. An extremely thin needle is used to inject the solution into the layer of fat and connective tissues that lies underneath the skin.
The medications that are used in the formula are mixed according to each patient’s individual needs and physiology. The mixture usually contains four to twelve medications and a local aesthetic that helps to minimize discomfort during the injection.
Mesotherapy treatment can be performed on many different areas of the body where excess fat is prone to accumulate, including the abdomen, buttocks, love handles, upper arms, and chin. Once the formula is injected into the targeted area, it causes excess fat deposits to break up and dissolve. Fat cells then enter the bloodstream and are excreted by the kidneys.
Several sessions, spaced approximately four weeks apart, may be needed before optimal results are achieved. Body contouring patients lose between two to six inches of fat on average and cellulite patients notice smoother, clearer skin. Among its many advantages, mesotherapy treatment is non-invasive, quick, and requires no downtime. To learn more about this body reshaping treatment, please contact Bodian Dermatology & Medical Dental Spa to schedule a mesotherapy consultation.
Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure that is performed to remove excess fat on areas of the body that are hard to tone, such as the abdomen, buttocks, and upper arms. Dr. Adam Bodian performs the liposuction procedure at our practice using the latest techniques and equipment to ensure that treatment is as comfortable and effective as possible.
After the patient is comfortably sedated, an instrument known as a cannula is surgically inserted into the treatment area. The tip of the cannula is used to break fat deposits into tiny pieces. These fat deposits are then vacuumed up through the cannula and out of the body.
In addition to removing troublesome fat deposits, liposuction can also be performed to diminish the appearance of cellulite. Most liposuction patients are extremely pleased with the results of their new figures and appearance and enjoy greater confidence and self-esteem after treatment.
