Tumescent Liposuction - VASER®" with: Female Abdomen & Love Handles with VASER®

Liposonix - New Effective Non Surgical Liposuction Device

Our Doctor specializes in performing liposuction, the most popular cosmetic procedure in New York, to remove unwanted excess pockets of fat. His technique does not require full anesthesia, allowing the patient to observe the treated areas and to get back to normal activities faster. Using cutting-edge technologies, the procedure is done in his accredited in-office surgical facility using minimally-invasive devices:

  • Tumescent Liposuction, otherwise known as "liposuction under local anesthesia," is a minimally-invasive fat removal procedure involves the use of a small, hollow stainless tube called a microcannula. Usually connected to a suction pump, the microcannula is inserted into the fat. The fat is eliminated by suction, resulting in a slimmer shape. Compared to older techniques, tumescent liposuction is safer, less painful, and requires less recovery time.
  • VASER® LipoSelection - this non-surgical procedure, performed using only local anesthesia, uses ultrasound to dissolve fat cells.
  • SmartLipo MPX™ is an innovative, two-laser device that melts fat and tightens skin at the same time, requiring only local anesthesia and mild sedation.

Our doctor performs hundreds of liposuction procedures each year at his NYC facility in NYC, often combining the VASER® and SmartLipo MPX™ technologies to achieve a "DualSculpt" effect and allow for additional control and precision to the fat removal process.

How does “DualSculpt” work?
The sound and light energy produced by the VASER and SmartLipo generates heat, which in turn dissolves fat on contact; meanwhile the surrounding tissue remains unaffected. Suction of the treatment area removes the dissolved fat cells efficiently.

What can I expect to happen during these minimally-invasive fat removal procedures?
No general anesthesia is needed for tumescent liposuction, VASER LipoSelection or SmartLipo MPX™, which is a great advantage. All are performed with local anesthesia. First, our doctor injects a saline solution into the treatment area. The saline solution not only helps numb the area, it also gives the treatment area additional liquid volume. This infusion of liquid aids in “prepping” the fat for removal. After the fat removal, a special garment that applies pressure is placed on the treated area; this tightens the skin and reduces bruising.

Why aren’t other tissues damaged by VASER® or SmartLipo MPX™?
Simply, the technologies are intelligent. Fat cells are more susceptible to the heat produced by the VASER and Smart Lipodevices than more structured tissues. As a result, the sound and light energy don’t penetrate other types of tissues, while doing an excellent job of dissolving the more vulnerable fat cells. This cellular targeting makes these body sculpting techniques not only safer, it creates less swelling and reduces recovery time.

What is the recovery time for tumescent liposuction, VASER® LipoSelection and SmartLipo MPX™?
All three procedures require relatively little downtime compared to more invasive procedures. Any incisions made don’t require stitches and tend to heal quickly. Most patients are back to their normal, daily routines within 48 hours—and most likely can resume exercise activities within a week.

Am I a good candidate for Tumescent Liposuction, VASER®, or SmartLipo MPX™?
You are a good candidate if you are generally healthy, want a fast, low-pain way to remove excess fatty tissue, and have realistic expectations. It’s important to know that none of these procedures are meant to treat weight loss or replace healthy living habits.
