Liposuction | Lipo 360

Liposuction is a fast and effective medical procedure that removes stubborn fat deposits from targeted areas of your body where diets and exercise have not been effective.  In summary, liposuction involves sucking the fat out of your body through small incisions in your skin.  A cannula with small holes is passed back and forth many times through the area which contains the fat, and a vacuum sucks that fat out, and that area becomes smaller.  If you have stubborn fat deposits, then our Liposuction NYC procedure we do out of New York City office can help you by removing that fat – fast and effectively.

Tumescent liposuction is currently the standard technique.  All surgeons who perform liposuction these days use the tumescent technique.  There are different machines, and additional devices such as a laser, which are used. But the most important factor for your result is the ability of your surgeon to remove the fat, you being a good candidate for the procedure, and you have realistic expectations. Everything else is secondary.


It is a new term that means removing the fat full circle from your body.  Your waist is 360 degrees around, and to make the thinnest waist possible, fat from the front, sides (love handles) and back, need to be removed.   If you just get liposuction of your stomach, your stomach will be flatter, but your waist not as thin as it could be after circumferential liposuction.


Although liposuction is commonly known for fat removal, it is important to understand that it should not be thought of as a weight-loss tool or as a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Lipo should also not be mistaken for being able to remove excess sagging skin or as a cellulite treatment.


For many of us, when it comes to aesthetic goals, a slimmer, leaner body is at the top of our wish list. A balanced and nutritious diet, regular activity and exercise, and an overall healthy lifestyle all play vital roles in people achieving their ideal physical appearance. However, sometimes diet and exercise alone do not fully give you the results you want. Stubborn fatty deposits in areas of the body may still liner despite your efforts. For those who may need that extra bit of help for those troublesome pockets of fat, there is liposuction.

Your Liposuction Options

By removing fat from certain areas, liposuction creates a more uplifted, round buttocks shape. (The fat can also be injected into other areas of the buttocks for further enhancement, if desired.)

Liposuction creates a flatter abdomen and more slender waist to eliminate “love handles” or a “muffin top” and achieve the desirable hourglass shape.

Almost any part of the thigh can be treated with liposuction, including just above the knee, under the butt (also known as the “banana roll”), the outer thighs, and the inner thighs to create the coveted “thigh gap”.

Liposuction can remove those stubborn pockets of fat on the outside of the hips known as “saddle bags” to produce a more slender shape and silhouette.
Fat in the upper back that bulges out from bra bands can be smoothed, and men who suffer from pseudo-gynecomastia, or male breasts, can achieve the firm chest they desire with liposuction.

Liposuction can remove fat from other difficult areas you might not have thought of, such as the knees, calves, ankles, and many other areas that are difficult to target with diet and exercise
