Liposuction New York

Fat Reduction in NYC

As you get older, localized areas of fat can become a headache to get rid of. Despite your visits to the gym and healthy eating, those love handles and muffin tops seem to stick around no matter what. For healthy men and women struggling to lose these stubborn deposits of fat, liposuction with New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Marcel Scheinman may be the solution.

Why Won't the Fat Go Away Anymore?

Unfortunately, there are several different factors that can make it extremely difficult to lose trouble areas of fat throughout the body. The foods that you used to eat when you were younger may now seem to almost instantly convert into inches around the waistline. This is because as you get older, your metabolism gradually slows down and you burn calories at a much slower rate than you used to. Even when you change your eating habits, you still may not quite see the results that you want.

Also, your body tends to react differently to exercise as you get older. Fat can become more resistant and much harder to burn off. On top of this, there are also various life factors that can make it increasingly difficult to find time to spend hours in the gym—family, work and other priorities.

Diet and exercise are key to a long, healthy life—they can often even help to maintain long-lasting results from procedures like a tummy tuck or liposuction—but they may not always be enough to achieve the slender body that you desire.

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction can be used to treat almost any area of the body. Dr. Scheinman uses liposuction to remove excess fat from your specific trouble areas including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Chest or breasts
  • Face and neck
  • Hips
  • Legs and thighs

In order to remove the excess fat, New York plastic surgeon Dr. Scheinman will make small incisions at the treatment site, using your body's natural contours to minimize the visibility of future lines or marks. A small tube called a cannula is then carefully inserted into the layer of fat below the skin. The cannula, which is attached to a vacuum pump at the other end, is then used to break up the fat cells and remove them through the body. Dr. Scheinman can treat multiple areas during your liposuction procedure based on what was discussed during your consultation.

Liposuction Recovery and Results

It is important to remain patient as your body continues to heal from surgery. It will take some time for bruising and swelling to fade, but you will soon realize a slimmer, tighter shape for your body. Most patients are able to return to work after about 2-3 weeks.
