Liposuction New York
Restore Your Confidence
Liposuction is a procedure to remove excess fat in unwanted areas that are not responding to diet or exercise. Liposuction surgery is used to slim thighs, flatten the abdomen, and improve contour in areas such as the hips, flanks, back and knees. It is also used to remove fat from a male chest.
The best liposuction technique
The most popular technique for liposuction is the tumescent technique. It involves infiltration of the desired area with a physiological salt solution with epinephrine. This infiltration minimizes bruising, pain and discomfort.
Liposuction can be done under local anesthesia in our New York City clinic with sedation for speedy recovery. There are other techniques such as ultrasound assisted liposuction, and power assisted liposuction. These techniques have more risks and absolutely NO advantage over the tumescent technique. The tumescent procedure requires 1-2 hours, depending on the number of areas and volume to be removed. A pressure garment is placed on the treated area to reduce swelling and discomfort. You should expect minimal bruising and discomfort in the surgical area controllable with analgesics. This procedure leaves minute 3-5mm scars in hidden areas. The patient can go home 2 hours post surgery, and return to the office for a follow-up visit in 1 week.
You should choose a Plastic Surgeon who is experienced in liposuction. Dr. Shahar uses a custom-made tiny cannula (the flexible tube used in the surgery) that provides you the best contour with minimal discomfort after surgery. He has performed thousands of liposuctions in New York, and the majority of his patients are able to return to work in 2-3 days.
