Liposuction NYC


Despite diet control, weight loss and exercise, many individuals have a body that is disproportionate in one or more areas due to localized fat deposits.  These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of fitness.  Alternatively, post-pregnancy, despite returning to a pre-pregancy weight, women may have one or two problem areas around the abdomen or flanks that are not due to excess skin.  Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body and improves overall body contour and proportion.  Second to breast augmentation, liposuction is the second most common cosmetic surgery that was performed last year with more than 300,000 surgeries performed according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.  There are various techniques and equipment for liposuction and each surgery is individualized for a patient’s needs.  Liposuction can be performed on the neck, chest, abdomen, back, arms and legs to name a few potential problem areas for individuals.  It can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures depending on a patient’s reasonable surgical goals.   Depending on the volume of fat to be removed and the other procedures that may be performed at the same time, liposuction may be performed on an outpatient basis but may also require overnight hospitalization.
