Liposuction is designed to improve the contour of your body by removing pockets of excess fat from specific areas of the body. ("Lipo" comes from the Greek word "lipos," meaning fat). While Liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss, Dr. Romano utilizes this procedure to create a smoother, trimmer body for those with extra pockets of fat that won't go away with weight loss or exercise.
Since so many physicians who are outside the true specialty of plastic surgery, there is a great deal of hype about laser devices, along with confusing marketing and advertising. Dr. Romano is an expert in Liposuction surgery having performed thousands of procedures. He individually tailors and carefully plans each procedure with drawings, photos, and markings over the course of several visits. Exquisite deployment of the right anesthesia, advanced techniques, and technologies (such as ultrasound) can produce excellent results that last the rest of your life.
