Dr. Janis DiPietro boasts certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery and more than 20 years of experience. For mini liposuction, the doctor administers an oral sedative to numb the treatment area, rendering sessions more comfortable than backstroking through a pool full of feathers. The procedure itself, using a specialized suction machine, lasts for one hour, with an additional hour allotted for sedation beforehand and discharge instructions afterward. Patients can expect minimal pain—the equivalent of a bruise, and swelling goes away after three months or roughly 2,000 episodes of Dawson’s Creek.
After the outpatient procedure, clients leave the office with a prescription for painkillers to minimize any discomfort. Newly slim adults can return immediately to work or teaching lions to dance.
