For those who want to resculpt their body safely and effectively, liposuction in New York City is an excellent choice.

Having a beautiful body is a common aspiration, but a modern work schedule and bad eating habits sometimes take over.

Reducing the excess fat that accumulates on the body becomes yet another distressing and exasperating process. Often, people are inclined toward dieting, but a healthy diet is not sufficient to achieve proper results.

Liposuction, or lipo, can address the stubborn body fat that diet and exercise are often unable to burn, restoring a fit and trim appearance. For three decades, people have been using this medical technique to transform their appearance.

Liposuction is one of the most popular and successful plastic surgery techniques on the market. Millions of clients have undertaken this procedure, and their results exhibit the safety and success rate of the surgery.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction uses medical suction to remove excess fat from various parts of one’s body, sculpting the figure. This procedure is often paired with other plastic surgery procedures like abdominoplasty or breast augmentation as well.

Which Areas of the Body Can Be Treated?

Liposuction is very versatile and can be used to contour numerous areas of the body. This form of fat reduction can be performed on regions like the upper arms, inner and outer thighs, neck, back, abdomen, waist, knees, chin, buttocks, and chest. It is often part of procedures like male breast reduction, a surgery used to correct gynecomastia (oversized male breasts).


How Does Liposuction Work?

The liposuction procedure involves the removal of stubborn accumulations of fatty tissue by the use of the suction method. In the liposuction process, a small, thin, pointed tube called a cannula is inserted into the area where the patient wants to eliminate the fat. The cannula sucks the excess fat out of the target area, leaving the region reduced in volume.

With modern techniques, this fat removal procedure has become easier to perform and gentler, resulting in less recovery time. Liposuction may be performed using any of the following three methods.

Tumescent Liposuction – In this process, before inserting the cannula, local anesthetic is given to the patient to numb the area where surgery will be performed. Tumescent fluid, an anesthetic solution that contains lidocaine and epinephrine, is infused in the fatty tissue, reducing bleeding during the surgery. General anesthesia will not be required.

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction – In this surgical method, doctors use ultrasound energy to dissolve the excess fat that patients want to get rid of, and then the melted fat is taken out more easily. This ultrasound technique is more useful in removing fat from the upper abdomen, sides, and back, as these are the primary areas where fat builds up in large amounts. Ultrasound energy makes it easy to remove.

Laser-Assisted Liposuction – This lipo technique uses laser energy to heat the stubborn fatty deposits, liquefying the accumulated fat. Doctors then remove this fat easily with the use of a small cannula.

Recovery Process

After the patient’s liposuction surgery, the treated areas are wrapped tightly to minimize swelling, pain, and the potential for rashes. They are wrapped with health aids such as tape, support hose, elastic bandages, or a special girdle. It is best to follow your plastic surgeon’s care directions closely to ensure quality results.

Patients don’t even need to stay overnight for this surgery; instead, since lipo is an outpatient procedure, patients can return to their daily lives as normal after the procedure.


Liposuction Cost

The size and number of treatment areas affect the overall price of a patient’s liposuction procedure. Additionally, liposuction cost is impacted by factors like the amount of fat to be removed, the type of anesthesia required, the exact techniques used, and the total surgery time.
