Liposuction, Long Island NY

Liposuction (also known as Lipoplasty) is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. It not only removes unwanted fat, but helps sculpt the body’s natural contour. This body contouring technique can also be used for many areas of the body, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, cheeks, chin, neck, thighs, upper arms, and waist and helps to create a more contoured, smoother appearance. It’s ideal for areas of the body that don’t respond well to diet and exercise.

Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction Surgery

What’s the difference between SmartLipo & traditional Liposuction?

Laser-assisted liposuction, known as SmartLipo, is an alternative liposuction technique. Deciding which type of liposuction technique is right for you depends on your overall goals. Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi can discuss the pros and cons of the different procedures with you during your consultation, and you can make a decision together on which technique is right for you.

What happens to my fat during Liposuction?

During liposuction, fat cells are physically removed from the body using a thin device called a cannula. After surgery, the fat can no longer return to the treated area. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after surgery, because fat can be redistributed to other areas of the body.

Who is an ideal candidate for Liposuction?

  • Men and women with a normal body weight, but have areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise
  • Non-Smokers
  • People in reasonably good health who have realistic expectations

What can I expect during my Liposuction surgery?

Dr. Lin and Dr. Kohen-Cashi perform liposuction on an outpatient basis at North Shore Center for Plastic Surgery in Long Island, NY. The length of surgery depends on the number and size of the areas being treated and the amount of fat being removed. Surgery time varies from one to four hours depending upon the number of areas treated. Patients can have either local or general anesthesia. During surgery, tiny incisions are made in the area(s) being treated, a cannula (a narrow, blunt-tipped tube) is inserted, and fat cells are removed.

What can I expect during my Liposuction recovery?

After surgery, patients can expect mild discomfort and swelling, but pain is managed with medication.  A surgical garment must also be worn for several weeks after surgery. Patients can expect to see an immediate change in their body contour after surgery and will continue to see improvement as healing progresses. Most patients can return to work after a few days, but strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for at least two to four weeks.
