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.

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.

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.
