Liposuction in New York City—Streamline Your Body

It’s no wonder liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States. Through liposuction, you can safely remove troublesome fat deposits and sculpt your body to reveal a smoother contour.  Dr. Matthew Schulman uses the latest, most effective technology when performing laser-assisted liposuction at our New York City plastic surgery practice. In fact, he plays a key role in training other physicians on the proper use of laser for fat removal.

The Liposuction Consultation

During your consultation with Dr. Schulman, you will learn about liposuction techniques, such as traditional, tumescent, and power-assisted tumescent liposuction.  Dr. Schulman will explain how skin elasticity and body firmness may play a role in the outcome of your procedure. He will also discuss anesthesia options.  Together, you and Dr. Schulman will decide on a treatment plan designed to give you the best possible results.

How is Liposuction Performed?

Dr. Schulman performs liposuction in a fully accredited New York City operating facility to ensure his patients’ safety, comfort, and privacy. During the liposuction procedure, he employs refined techniques and advanced technology to remove localized areas of fat and sculpt newly defined body contours.

Many patients choose to undergo liposuction in conjunction with tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or Brazilian butt lift—or as part of a complete mommy makeover.

Recovery after Liposuction

You will be required to wear a garment around the treatment area twenty-four hours a day for the duration specified by Dr. Schulman. The compression garment will reduce swelling, allow for a speedier recovery, and augment the results of the liposuction procedure.  

Most patients feel back to normal within a day or so after undergoing liposuction, depending upon the extent of the procedure and the number of areas treated. The results will be evident when swelling subsides and continue to improve in the weeks following the procedure.
