Offering New York City a new gold standard.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes fat from problem areas of the body that may be unresponsive to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed alongside other surgeries or as a standalone treatment, creating a firmer, more toned body silhouette. Removing fat is only one goal of the procedure, as Dr. Albert focuses on creating smooth and consistent results that will leave you feeling confident and excited to show off your new look in a variety of social settings.

Dr. Mark Albert’s extensive technical training has led to an extensive knowledge of liposuction techniques, and his eye for aesthetic detail has earned him a reputation for impressively naturalistic results. As a top-rated NYC plastic surgeon, he can safely remove up to five liters of fat in a single session creating substantial improvements and ensuring that you’ll absolutely love the way you look.

Is Liposuction Right for Me?

If you are like many of the patients who come to us seeking liposuction, you may be in great physical shape with a healthy body weight but are still frustrated with areas of fat that aren’t responding to traditional weight loss methods like diet and exercise. This is a relatively common experience, and liposuction is the ideal response to these difficult parts of the body.

Liposuction can enhance various areas of the body, including:

  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Upper arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Calves 
  • Ankles

Dr. Albert’s Approach to Liposuction

During your initial consultation, you and Dr. Albert will have ample time to get to know each other, discuss your areas of concern, and explore the various surgical options we offer that can help you both look and feel your absolute best. Dr. Albert will examine your physical features before helping you understand your options, and describe what is possible with liposuction in NYC. Our goal is to give you a clear idea of what you can expect from the procedure.

Patients often come to the Manhattan practice already familiar with one form of liposuction or another. Dr. Albert has expertise in multiple treatment options thanks to his extensive experience as a plastic surgeon and his post-residency training. Dr. Albert is one of the few plastic surgeons to have trained in the aesthetic plastic surgery fellowship at Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital, the oldest and most prestigious program of its kind.

You’ll get the chance, during your consultation, to ask just about any questions you might have about liposuction and what it can do for you. Dr. Albert will give you a clear idea of what you can expect on the day of your treatment and will ensure that you’re provided with a detailed recovery timeline and thorough aftercare instructions. We like to ensure that our patients have total peace of mind as they look forward to their final results.

Choosing the Right Technique

The most common methods of liposuction he uses are traditional, power-assisted, ultrasound-assisted, and laser-assisted liposuction. With all of these options, Dr. Albert will strategically place incisions so that scars remain hidden in the natural creases of the body.

Another option that Dr. Albert provides is radio-frequency tightening. One of the challenges of extensive liposuction in New York is that patients with very lax skin may notice a saggy appearance afterward in areas of treatment. Radio-frequency energy liquefies and removes fat, and tightens the skin. This gives an overall firmer appearance without requiring surgery to excise the skin. The treatment is particularly effective on areas such as arms, thighs, abdomen, and back roll; the removal of back rolls might otherwise leave behind surgical scars.

Your Liposuction Experience

Keeping You Comfortable

During your liposuction procedure, you’ll be placed under either local or general anesthesia, depending on your needs and preferences. With local anesthesia, you’ll be wide awake and can usually wear headphones or use your mobile devices throughout the surgery.

The duration of your liposuction procedure will depend on how many areas you are treating and the amount of fat you prefer to have removed. Dr. Albert can share a tentative timeline for the surgery during your initial consultation.

Creating Your Results

Dr. Albert will usually perform liposuction on three to six areas during each surgical session. For most patients, this level of treatment will provide the noticeable and attractive results they want to achieve. During the plastic surgery procedure, Dr. Albert will:

  • Treat trouble spots to create proportionate, firm, and smoothly-contoured features
  • Address areas of concern around the body for an overall fitter appearance
  • Remove the right amount of fat to keep the results noticeable yet natural-looking

Your Recovery and Final Results

Immediately following your liposuction procedure, Dr. Albert recommends that you wear a compression garment for six weeks. This garment will help keep the treatment areas tight and promote the best long-term results.

Liposuction patients do not usually experience much bruising after their surgery. You may have some discomfort making certain movements and will have some swelling around the surgical sites, but most people recover within a week or two of the procedure.

Patients who have liposuction at Albert Plastic Surgery in NYC report being extremely satisfied with their results and feeling transformed by the outcome. Liposuction eliminates areas of fat that may have persisted for years, leaving you with a slim, firm figure.
