Many people are unhappy with the appearance of certain areas of their body, especially where fat deposits can be persistent despite weight loss and exercise. Excess fat and bulges in various areas of the body can lead to a lack of self-confidence and discomfort in clothing or swimsuits. This is especially the case after pregnancy or other bodily changes that come with aging.

However, you can take action to enhance your silhouette and restore your desired, slender appearance. Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures and can produce beautiful results that maintains your natural appearance and shows you at your best. Dr. Glasberg is a liposuction specialist in Manhattan with years of experience, receiving rave reviews from patients about the appearance and shapeliness of their results.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Liposuction can be a great choice for people who are overall in good health and maintain a healthy lifestyle. This minimally invasive procedure does not serve as a weight loss solution, but it can be an excellent option to deal with persistent fat deposits in specific targeted areas of the body. This procedure can be an effective choice for people with fat deposits in a number of areas of the body, including the thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, back, chest, abdomen, calves, ankles and neck.

Dr. Glasberg has a strong history of excellent results in removing stubborn areas of fat with this procedure. He is dedicated to working with each patient to produce results that meet your vision for your body and silhouette. An ideal candidate for this procedure is close to their ideal body weight and not planning on significant weight loss or gain.

It is best to schedule this procedure after your weight loss journey is complete in order to ensure that you receive the beautiful, natural and artistically durable results that you desire.

The Procedure

As an exceptional New York City liposuction specialist, Dr. Glasberg will take into account your specific goals and desires for your treatment in order to determine the best steps and procedures to achieve your goals. Dr. Glasberg will recommend the most beneficial option for your body shape and targeted areas. Furthermore, his exceptionally high level of skill means that he brings not only medical excellence and efficiency but true artistry to your procedure, helping you achieve the look of your dreams.

The procedure itself is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia using a tumescent technique, which makes use of a volume of solution in order to maximize your comfort, aesthetic outcomes and comfort during and after the procedure. Dr. Glasberg will make several tiny incisions and inject a local anesthetic in order to help firm and expand the areas being targeted, making it easier to remove precisely and completely. Dr. Glasberg will then insert a thin tube called a cannula in order to remove the fat from these areas of concern. Because this procedure is minimally invasive, no stitches are needed and the incisions will heal naturally.

As an acclaimed Manhattan board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Glasberg also offers a laser-assisted tumescent procedure, where a laser is used to liquefy targeted areas of fat before removal and also tighten skin in the treated area. Another option is an ultrasound-assisted procedure, in which Dr. Glasberg makes use of ultrasound energy to liquefy targeted fat prior to removal in order to ensure a smoother and more painless process.
