Planning your surgery
In your initial consultation, Manhattan liposuction plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon will evaluate your health, determine where your fat deposits lie and assess the condition of your skin. He will explain the body contouring methods that may be most appropriate for you. For example, if you believe you want liposuction in the abdominal area, you may learn that an abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” may more effectively meet your goals; or that a combination of traditional liposuction and UAL would be the best choice for you.
Be frank in discussing your expectations with Manhattan liposuction cosmetic surgeon Dr. Zevon. He will be equally frank with you, describing the liposuction procedure in detail and explaining its risks and limitations.
Getting the answers you need
Individuals considering liposuction often feel a bit overwhelmed by the number of options and techniques being promoted today. However, Manhattan liposuction specialist Dr. Zevon can help. In deciding which is the right treatment approach for you, he will consider effectiveness, safety, cost and appropriateness for your needs. This is called surgical judgment, a skill that is developed through surgical training and experience. Dr. Zevon also uses this judgement to prevent complications, to handle unexpected occurrences during liposuction surgery, and to treat complications when they occur.
Manhattan liposuction cosmetic surgeon Dr. Zevon’s education and training have helped to form his surgical judgement, so feel free to review Dr. Zevon’s training and background. Patients are encouraged to consider a doctor certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (“ABPS”). By choosing a plastic surgeon who is certified by the ABPS, like Dr. Zevon, a patient can be assured that the doctor has graduated from an accredited medical school and completed at least five years of additional residency – usually three years of general surgery (or its equivalent) and two years of plastic surgery. To be certified by the ABPS, a doctor must also practice surgery for two years and pass comprehensive written and oral exams.
