Liposuction is a common, relatively safe and effective fat removal procedure that has been performed for decades. Liposuction addresses excess fat anywhere in the body, including the abdomen, waist, hips, back, buttocks, thighs, knees, arms and neck. Current technology allows us to do liposuction via the standard technique or utilize laser-assisted liposuction. At Vantage Plastic Surgery in NYC, our team will walk you through the process confidently to achieve your individual, most natural transformation goals.
Liposuction is an excellent tool for removing targeted fat deposits that are resistant to diet or exercise. Liposuction surgery is used to reshape and contour the body by removing stubborn fat. Once fat cells are removed, they do not regenerate. This is a permanent solution to reshape the body, reducing fat in specific areas. Good candidates for liposuction are within a normal weight range for their height but have small amounts of fat they want removed from specific areas on their body.
Types of Cosmetic Liposculpture
Liposuction is a time-tested cosmetic surgery for body contouring. It only requires small incisions to access the area that needs liposculpture with the suctioning and fat mobilization tools. Tumescent liposuction has been around longer, but laser liposuction offers benefits for more delicate areas that require cosmetic liposculpture. At Vantage Plastic Surgery, we offer the following options in cosmetic liposuction surgery for face and body contouring procedures:
Both laser and tumescent liposuction use methods to liquify the targeted fat for easier removal. This reduces damage to the skin and tissues for quicker recovery. Most liposuction surgery procedures have minimal downtime and recovery required, unless paired with another type of plastic surgery like a tummy tuck or lift procedure.
