Q.) What is Band Aid Liposuction, and how is it different from traditional liposuction?
Similar to the development of Dr. LeRoy’s other Band Aid procedures; Band Aid Liposuction is just a mini version of liposuction for those patients who do not need the full procedure. Because Band Aid Liposuction can be performed in office under local anesthesia, recovery time is minimal. Most patients can even drive themselves home after the “mini” procedure.
Q.) What areas can be slimmed with Band Aid Liposuction?
Band Aid Liposuction can be performed on areas of the body that store small amounts of excess fat, including: abdomen, hips, saddlebags, arms, knees, back, legs, buttocks and under the chin.
Q.) How long does it take to recover from Band Aid Liposuction?
Since Band Aid Liposuction is less invasive than traditional liposuction, patients can expect very minimal downtime. In most cases, patients are back to their daily activities in 1-3 days.
Q.) Who can benefit from Band Aid Liposuction?
Band Aid Liposuction is reserved for those patients who have small amounts of excess fat stores that do not respond to diet and exercise. Patients with larger amounts of fat may benefit most from the traditional liposuction procedure. During a consultation, Dr. LeRoy can help you decide which procedure will best meet your needs.
