Liposuction Surgery

We provide our patients from Manhattan, Greenwich, New Canaan, Stamford, and beyond with the safest, highest quality liposuction procedures possible to help them artfully shape their bodies, eliminate excess fat, and improve skin tone.

The abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck are areas where fat tends to accumulate.  Sometimes, diet and exercise alone are not enough.  Liposuction is a surgical procedure that is designed to remove excess fat from the affected areas by suctioning it from the body.  This technique has been refined over the last several years as the technology and instrumentation has improved substantially.  It remains one of the most popular and most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures.

The Liposuction Procedure

During liposuction, fat is suctioned from the body with a thin tube called a cannula that is inserted through small and strategically placed incisions.  This is performed while the patient is under local anesthesia with a sedative or general anesthesia.  The procedure usually takes between one and three hours, depending on the amount of fat that is being removed and the areas involved.

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures sought by patients at our Manhattan, Greenwich, New Canaan, and Stamford area practice due to its effectiveness and quick recovery.  It can be performed as a solo procedure or with other procedures, such as facelift, breast reduction, and tummy tuck, for additional contouring.  We also utilize liposuction as part of our mommy makeovers and post-weight loss plastic surgery procedures to improve these results.

After Liposuction

After undergoing liposuction, the patient may experience some soreness, swelling, and discomfort.  Pain is managed with medication and most symptoms subside within a week or two.  Most patients can return to work and to normal, non-strenuous activity in just a few days.

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and is best done on younger patients who are in good health and who have localized areas of excess fat with good skin tone.  It should not be considered to be an alternative to a healthy diet and regular exercise.  However, it can help those who are at or near their ideal weight achieve a more toned and sculpted look by removing unwanted fat from difficult or genetically-prone areas.
