Tumescent Liposuction

Do you want to reshape your abdomen or thighs with liposuction? Diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits can be removed with liposuction, permanently reshaping your body. Tumescent liposuction has been used for the last few decades as the most trusted option for removing larger fat deposits on the arm, thighs, stomach, back and other areas. At Vantage Plastic Surgery, we offer tumescent liposuction at our NYC clinics performed by our double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg.

It can be frustrating trying to reshape your body by diet and exercise alone. Genetics, age and other factors can make it difficult to lose fat in specific areas. There is no way to target fat loss without a cosmetic procedure. Tumescent liposuction uses an injectable saline solution that helps liquify the targeted fat and is paired with suction to remove the softened fat cells from under the skin. This is a safe and effective method for sculpting and contouring the body for permanent fat removal.

Dr. Shteynberg is a body shaping specialist with extensive experience using tumescent liposuction to contour the body. Tumescent liposuction offers more precision than some other types of fat removal methods, allowing Dr. Shteynberg to use his surgical and artistic skills to create the shape desired. Tumescent lipo can be performed as a stand-alone procedure with only local anesthesia or in conjunction with lift or tightening procedures like a tummy tuck, body lift or thigh lift.

Lipo Under Local Anesthesia

Tumescent liposuction is a minimally-invasive cosmetic surgery that can be performed with only local anesthesia. The targeted area can be numbed with local anesthesia injections and Dr. Shteynberg can perform the procedure while you are awake, but feeling no discomfort. Tiny incisions are needed to access the area, but only require a few stitches to close. Tumescent lipo under local anesthesia is considered safer and more accurate than other types of liposuction surgery which require general anesthesia.

If you want to explore body contouring or reshaping options, Vantage Plastic Surgery offers liposuction surgery to create the body shape you desire.
