Liposuction is a powerful tool in plastic surgery. It has the ability to sculpt the body by removing undesirable fat from many different areas. Liposuction is most commonly performed on the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs and chin. Local or general anesthesia may be used depending on the procedure location and the amount of fat removed.

There are several different types of liposuction and new liposuction techniques are constantly making their way into the magazines and onto the news. Some of these techniques include traditional liposuction, power assisted liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, laser liposuction and water-jet assisted liposuction. In all techniques, a tiny incision is made in a relatively inconspicuous location. A cannula or small tube is inserted beneath the skin where it breaks up and suctions out the fat. While many people argue that one type of liposuction is better than another, convincing scientific data has yet to settle this debate.

There is a relatively low complication rate when this procedure is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. After surgery, compression garments are commonly used for patient comfort and to decrease swelling. Patients are encouraged to walk as soon as they are able and they often return to work within a few days.

5 Questions About Liposuction

Here are some of the most popular questions we get from patients considering liposuction in our New York and New Jersey clinics:

1. Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Virtually anyone can get liposuction. However, the ideal candidate is someone within 30 pounds of their goal weight. They should also live a healthy lifestyle and do regular exercise. Moreover, the best candidates for liposuction have good skin elasticity and are willing to work to maintain the results they achieve through the procedure.

2. How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

The cost of liposuction varies according to each individual patient. Dr. Morin will start by performing an initial consultation evaluating the treatment area and how much fat needs to be removed. He will then have a better idea of how much the procedure will cost. Typically, liposuction costs anywhere between $3,000 and $9,000.

3. Which Parts of the Body Can Liposuction Treat?

Liposuction can remove fat from almost all parts of the body. Some of the most common areas people want to treat with liposuction include:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Under the chin

4. Will the Results of Liposuction Last?

Liposuction should not be seen as a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. Instead, you should view it as an aid toward achieving your fitness goals. If you combine liposuction with the right exercise regime and diet, you can achieve long-lasting results.

5. How Long is the Recovery Time After Liposuction?

The recovery time after the procedure depends on the type of liposuction you get and the area treated. Thanks to modern technology, however, most patients only need two to three days to recover from liposuction at our New York or New Jersey clinics.

Natural Results and Smooth Skin Contraction

The results of liposuction are incredible. Because liposuction involves only a small incision in relatively inconspicuous places, you will achieve natural results without noticeable scarring. In addition to removing fat from the body, liposuction accentuates the contour of your natural shape by leaving your skin both tighter and smoother.
