Aging, pregnancy, weight gain can cause excess fat to accumulate in the abdominal area. Such fat is very difficult to get rid of with conventional weight loss measures. Stomach liposuction in NYC provides men and women with a flatter, well-shaped tummy. The procedure removes subcutaneous fat that lies beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscle wall and simultaneously tightens the overlying skin. The success of the abdomen liposuction depends on the factors such as age, history of weight gain and weight loss, amount and location of the fat, etc.
In AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practices in NYC, stomach liposuction is performed using the Smartlipo Triplex device. The technique involves using laser energy to melt the fat cells so that they can be easily removed using a cannula that is much smaller than that used for the traditional liposuction procedure. A skilled surgeon will sculpt the stomach to result in a trim, attractive, natural shape. Treatment with this minimally-invasive, FDA approved laser-assisted device causes minimal bleeding and pain. It is performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. Other benefits include short treatment time and downtime, faster healing, and speedy recovery. Laser liposuction also comes with the added benefit of skin tightening.
Who is an ideal candidate for tummy liposuction? Men and women over the age of 18 who are in good health can have the treatment. Good candidates would have localized fat deposits in the abdominal region, but no or minimal skin laxity. They would also be close to their ideal body weight.
Abdomen liposuction may be performed alone or along with a tummy tuck to enhance the outcome. Choosing a surgeon who has extensive experience in performing stomach liposuction utilizing the laser technology is crucial for a successful outcome. A reliable surgeon will evaluate your concerns and provide customized treatment to restore the natural contour of your abdomen. In AAAASF-accredited practices in NYC, surgeons use advanced imaging technologies to help patients visualize the outcomes of the procedure. They also explain the benefits and risks associated with the surgery so that patients can take an informed decision.
