Give Yourself The Perfect New Year’s Gift: Liposuction!

Give Yourself The Perfect New Year’s Gift: Liposuction!

Do you exercise regularly and eat sensibly but still have areas of stubborn fat pockets that just won’t go away? Are you ready to lose those unwanted bulges and become slimmer, trimmer and more toned? If so, you might be a great candidate for liposuction, a highly successful, long-lasting body contouring procedure that can bring about truly dramatic results. Think of it as a new body for the new year!

How does liposuction work?

Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by reducing excess fat deposits and improving your body’s contours and proportion for a trimmer, firmer silhouette. During the procedure, excess body fat is extracted by inserting a small hollow tube called a cannula through one or more tiny incisions near the area to be reshaped. The cannula is connected to a suction device that permanently vacuums away your unwanted fat. If you want to reduce fat throughout your entire body, it will probably take multiple procedures. 

The areas of the body that respond best to liposuction

One of the many body contouring procedures I perform, liposuction is very successful at reducing localized fat deposits and reshaping a person’s body, often dramatically.  It can be performed on almost any part of the body but these are the most commonly requested areas:

  • abdomen and waist
  • hips and buttocks
  • inner and outer thighs
  • inner knees
  • calves and ankles
  • cheeks, jowls and neck
  • upper arms
  • breast or chest areas
  • back

For even better results, liposuction can be combined with other body sculpting procedures

If you’re like many of my patients, you might choose to combine liposuction with an additional body shaping procedure, such as a tummy tuckbreast augmentation or Brazilian butt lift to achieve the transformative results you’re looking for. In addition to liposuction, I also offer a wide range of other body sculpting procedures to help you achieve a more shapely body, which you can learn about here.

How to know if you’re a good candidate for liposuction

In order to be considered a good candidate for this particular surgical procedure, you should be in good overall physical health and maintain a routine of regular exercise and proper diet. Liposuction tends to work best on smaller areas of fat, so you should be somewhat close to your ideal weight at the time of your procedure. I do tell my patients, however, that liposuction is not a substitute for other weight loss strategies and is not designed for patients who are overweight or obese.

By changing your body, liposuction can also change your life

For many of my patients, liposuction has been a wonderful turning point in their lives, boosting their self-esteem and enabling them to feel confident about their bodies, sometimes for the first time. For others, having liposuction is the motivation they need to commit to a better lifestyle and finally let go of bad habits such as smoking and overeating, becoming healthier than they were before the surgery. What I see over and over again is that liposuction is about more than simply eliminating fat and becoming slimmer.

I perform liposuction at the Surgical Specialty Center of Westchester

For almost every plastic surgery procedure I perform, including liposuction, I use the Surgical Specialty Center of Westchester. Located in Harrison, NY, the Surgical Specialty Center has an 11-bed recovery room and four operating rooms. Each operating room is fully equipped with state-of-the-art anesthesia (provided by a board-certified anesthesiologist), emergency equipment and everything else I and my surgical team need to provide the highest standard of care to each one of our patients. The Surgical Specialty Center is Medicare approved, state licensed and meets all current requirements at the top level of New York State. To learn more, watch this short video by clicking on the image below.

How much does liposuction cost?

Because every person’s body is unique and the amount and location of fat to be removed through liposuction vary from person to person, the exact cost of surgery is usually determined by a plastic surgeon after he or she has met with the patient and together, they have decided which and how many areas of the body are good candidates for liposuction in order to achieve the best possible results.
