Stomach liposuction removes excess fat that lies under the skin and above the abdominal muscles. Stomach liposuction in NYC can provide men and women with a flatter and trimmer stomach. It is a great option for patients with no or very minimal skin laxity. In leading AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practices, the procedure is performed using the minimally-invasive, FDA approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation.

With Smartlipo liposuction, the patient experiences less scarring, swelling, bleeding and bruising than in conventional liposuction treatment. The procedure also comes with reduced patient downtime and recovery time.

Stomach Liposuction Recovery
Post liposuction treatment, you will be advised to wear a compression garment 24 hours a day for three weeks and remove it only when bathing or washing it. This will help reduce bleeding and swelling and minimize the risk of seroma. You should maintain a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise to maintain the results of your procedure. The success of the procedure largely depends on factors such as age, gender, history of weight gain and weight loss, history of pregnancy, and the amount and location of abdominal fat.
