At Sadick Dermatology, we offer many of the most advanced liposuction techniques, providing our patients in New York with the greatest number of options for this procedure.
Indications for Liposuction
The best candidates for liposuction are in good physical shape but need some extra help to remove problem areas of body fat. If you’re a physically active person with a good diet and still can’t eradicate pockets of fat, then you may be a good candidate. To benefit from liposuction, you should also have an adequate level of skin elasticity.
While there are many variations of this procedure (laser assisted, ultrasound assisted or water assisted liposuction), the operator is always the most important factor for achieving great results. The expert physicians of Sadick Dermatology provide many techniques:
All of these procedures will utilize the same, proven method for body fat removal. A small incision is made near the area(s) of unwanted fat. You surgeon inserts a liposuction cannula to dislodge and vacuum out the fat. The surgery can be done under local or general anesthesia, depending on the amount of fat removed and body areas treated.
Common areas for treatment with liposuction include the abdomen, back, flanks, buttocks, chest, arms, thighs and neck. Liposuction is also used during many procedures in post-bariatric or post-weight loss body contouring.
