Liposuction in Manhattan, NY
Plastic Surgery Center Internationale performs liposuction for the residents of Manhattan, NY.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure to remove fat deposits using suction. Patients who are close to a normal weight but still have pockets of excessive fat are the best candidates for liposuction.
How is Liposuction Performed?
The surgeon will first inject the area to be treated with a solution of salt water and epinephrine, which shrinks blood vessels and makes fat removal easier. The solution will also contain an anesthetic. An incision is made near the area containing the fat to be removed, and a small tube called a cannula is inserted. The cannula is attached to a vacuum pump, allowing the surgeon to suction out the excess fat. The incisions are closed with stitches.
