Liposuction is one of our most popular cosmetic enhancement procedures here at New York Plastic Surgical Group. Our plastic surgeons utilize some of the latest liposuction techniques—including the innovative VASER LipoSelection® treatment—to successfully remove stubborn pockets of excess fat in virtually any body area. If you have been struggling with excess fat deposits in spite of regular diet and exercise, liposuction can help you achieve the figure you’ve been working toward. This procedure can give your body a more contoured and more youthful appearance with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Liposuction can eliminate isolated pockets of excess fat from areas including:
- Flanks (Love Handles)
One of our skilled plastic surgeons will meet with you for an initial consultation to explain all aspects of liposuction, talk with you about your goals, and determine if this procedure is the right option for you.
Liposuction Recovery and Results
As with any surgery, liposuction patients can expect to experience some temporary swelling and bruising; however, any post-operative discomfort can be alleviated with oral pain medication. Depending on your individual needs, our doctors may recommend a compression garment to be worn in the days following surgery, which can aid in the healing process. Most liposuction patients return to work and their daily activities about one week after surgery. Our surgeon will advise you to avoid strenuous exercise for several weeks in order to ensure proper healing.
