Liposuction in New York City is one of the most widely accepted and demanded cosmetic surgical procedures today. The latest annual statistics report of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reveals that a total of 258,558 liposuctions were performed and the popularity of this procedure grew by 5% from 2017.
ASPS reports that the main focus was on the body and in fact, there were more than 12,000 more liposuction procedures performed in 2018 than in 2017. According to ASPS President Alan Matarasso, MD, “liposuction continues to be the gold standard in body contouring because of its versatility, efficiency and effectiveness. With liposuction, one treatment may be all you need to reshape problem areas. A plastic surgeon can treat more areas-and larger areas-in one procedure. Liposuction also provides a more consistent and predictable result than non-invasive treatments, but new non-surgical fat reduction machinery continues to evolve and play a role in reshaping areas of the body.”
AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery facilities in NYC also report an increase in patients seeking this body contouring procedure. The availability of advanced minimally-invasive techniques such as Smartlipo laser liposuction in NYC as well as surgeons skilled in the procedure has contributed significantly to the spike in the demand for liposuction. Smartlipo liposuction is a minimally invasive laser-assisted procedure performed using the FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation. Both men and women can get excess fat removed from areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, love handles, saddle bags, hips, back, knees, inner thighs, outer thighs, upper arms, face, neck and chin using this state-of-the-art laser-assisted workstation.
This workstation utilizes the power of three laser wavelengths – 1440, 1064 and 1320 nm – to liquefy and remove fat in the targeted areas. The procedure coagulates tissue, resulting in tissue retraction and minimizes bleeding. In addition to gentle removal of unwanted fat from both small and extensive areas, the procedure offers benefits such as superior skin tightening effects, short procedural time, use of local anesthesia and reduced surgical trauma. It allows patients to achieve their goals more quickly than with traditional liposuction and with considerably less surgical trauma.
The technology can be used in single or blended mode. The device has intelligent delivery systems such as SmartSense™ with ThermaGuide™ and ThermaView™ that constantly monitor and regulate skin temperature, and maintain safe levels of treatment. However, the results of liposuction using Smartlipo are dependent on the skills and experience of the provider and so it is crucial to choose the right surgeon if you are planning to undergo laser liposuction in NYC.
