When it comes to plastic surgery, the key to attaining your ideal results is knowing exactly which issues you are trying to address. Once you know this, you’ll need to learn which surgery will properly address those issues.

One of the main purposes of a consultation at our office is to give board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Sherman a chance to understand your specific reasons for pursuing surgery. However, doing a bit of research prior to your consultation is incredibly beneficial.

Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures. It offers outstanding results. However, there is often some confusion about the kind of issues that liposuction can treat.

Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. Instead, it is a precise body-contouring procedure. It is designed to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat in areas all around the body.

It can be used to treat areas like the thighs, chest, abdomen, back, flanks, upper arms, and neck. While the procedure does produce results by removing excess fat from the targeted area, it is not designed to remove massive amount of excess fat.

Excess fat around the abdomen can give you a bloated appearance. If there is excess fat around your upper arms and thighs, it can diminish the amount of muscle definition in the area. Removing this excess fat through liposuction can enhance the natural contours of your body, which will give you a more curvaceous, toned, and attractive figure.

If you would like to use liposuction to target the stubborn pockets of fat around your body, contact New York Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sherman. He can let you know if liposuction will provide you with the results you are looking for.
