Some of the more common areas for liposuction in Staten Island include the abdomen, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, arms and buttocks. Depending on the location and volume of fat, there are a number of Staten Island liposuction techniques that can be used. These include body-sculpting liposuction, conventional liposuction, large volume liposuction, tumescent liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction. Your Staten Island liposuction expert will explain each of the methods in more detail when you meet for your initial appointment.

Most liposuction in Staten Island removes about 5 pounds or less to create more proportionate or smoother contours. It is intended to target bulges here and there and is not typically used on layers of fat that are evenly distributed throughout your body. Liposuction in Staten Island is not a weight loss procedure nor an alternative to diet and exercise. However, the procedure can be an excellent way to create a sleeker, more attractive silhouette.

Most people struggle with pockets of fat that will not budge, no matter how hard they diet and exercise. Thanks to liposuction in Staten Island, those problem areas may be a problem no more. Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, aims for localized lumps of fat, using a special tool to break it up and literally suck it out. Because the procedure permanently removes a portion of fat cells, patients who undergo the treatment tend to not regain weight in the targeted area (as long as a healthy diet and lifestyle are maintained). For that reason, Staten Island liposuction is in high demand, making it one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today.
