Liposuction

Sometimes genetics, the passage of time and significant life events can converge to affect your body shape in a way that you’re less than pleased with. For those trouble spots that diet and exercise alone won’t improve, liposuction can get rid of fat and provide powerful reshaping of your problem areas.

With Liposuction, you’ll feel free to leap out of bed in the morning, lighter and slimmer than before.

In some cases, patients are concerned about gaining weight back in the future. Although possible, one of the benefits of liposuction is that you will gain weight more uniformly with less propensity to gain it back in those problem areas.

Advantages

  • Less invasive option
  • Tones and reshapes the trickiest of areas — including the thighs, abdomen, and upper arms
  • Boosts confidence and improves self-esteem
  • Liposuction is a great tool for addressing those one or two problem areas that weight gain always seems to go to

Considerations

  • Despite your best efforts, some problem areas may remain resistant to diet and exercise. Further weight loss could result in your face appearing thin and gaunt, making you look older than your age. Liposuction is a nice, simple way of targeting those problem areas while maintaining a vibrant and youthful look.

Q&A

 

Liposuction removes fat from the body. During this treatment your surgeon will use a small tube attached to suction in order to remove excess fat. The tube is inserted under the skin through tiny, nearly invisible incisions that leave minimal scars. Fat is removed quickly and efficiently, and the procedure is a simple outpatient surgery.
A great start is for the patient to have defined goals, reasonable expectations and a good rapport with their surgeon. Our patient-driven and surgeon-guided approach enables us to define a treatment plan that is customized to the individual’s needs. Different problems with regard to body contour require different solutions.
In general, patients benefit the most from liposuction when they already have a clearly defined problem area. The best results are achieved when patients have good skin elasticity which enables the skin to shrink and recontour as a result of liposuction removing the underlying fat.

Liposuction is commonly used to treat a broad range of areas on the body, from the neck to the upper arms, back and flanks. At times, liposuction is used in combination with other procedures, for example, when we liposuction the fat on someone’s neck immediately prior to performing a face lift or neck lift.

 

These specific treatment areas should be discussed with your surgeon. Based upon your own personal body shape, health, problem areas, and skin elasticity, Plastic Surgery of New York will help you choose the right liposuction options for you.

The results from liposuction are generally permanent and long lasting. In some cases, patients are concerned about gaining weight back in the future. Although possible, one of the benefits of liposuction is that you will gain weight more uniformly with less propensity to gain it back in those problem areas.
