The (TLM) total leg makeover(tm) is a procedure invented by Dr. David A. Greuner that combines several cutting edge, minimally invasive techniques to get you a younger, healthier, and more beautiful pair of legs that you can be proud of.
Dr. Greuner and associates will first start with a state of the art vascular ultrasound examination of your leg circulation, which is often covered by health insurance. Our staff will fully evaluate your arteries, veins, and accurately and quickly diagnose and abnormalities or symptoms that need to be addressed.
Your doctor will then discuss the results with you prior to moving forward. We will discuss concerns, both functional and cosmetic. A full treatment plan, covering medical problems, cosmetic problems, and anything in between will be discussed, as well as a detailed discussion of the best treatments for you and the schedule involved.
Some of the modern techniques pioneered by Dr. Greuner that will be used include Knifeless Endovenous Laser ™, another scarless procedure pioneered by Dr. Greuner that does not involve the use of a scalpel, as other physicians use. This minimizes scarring and often leaves no evidence that a procedure was ever done. This is especially important in darker skinned individuals, who tend to show scars more readily.
Once your legs are functionally at their best, the least invasive, most effective form of liposuction, “microcannula tumescent” liposuction is used to give your legs the best shape possible, and reverse the clock.
Dr. Greuner and his associates are part of a select and rare group of physicians in this country to be trained and experienced in microcannula liposuction with tumescent anesthesia, the safest form of liposuction.
Depending on the patient, more than one procedure may be neccessary. Microcannula liposuction involves very small liposuction tools that accomplish a smoother, more natural result, with minimal incisions that will typically heal without scarring.
Should you be a better candidate for laser liposuction, that technology will be utilized and is readily available at our offices. That decision will be made by your physician at the time of evaluation.
Finishing touches, such as injection sclerotherapy, are utilized to erase any signs of aging that may be present after liposuction and vein ablation.
Come in for an evaluation to see whether you are a candidate for a total leg makeover, and get yourself a pair of better feeling, more active, and more beautiful legs today.
With the modern technology used at NYC Surgical Associates, we are able to reverse the clock, and get you feeling and looking better with minimal downtime and NO GENERAL ANESTHESIA.
