Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

A healthy lifestyle can help most people achieve their weight-loss goals. But despite your best efforts, stubborn pockets of fat may sometimes remain. Liposuction is a surgical fat removal procedure that targets specific areas of your body and can remove fat in your:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Neck

It's also used in many breast reduction procedures. Liposuction is especially useful for treating gynecomastia, a condition in which men develop swollen breast tissue.

Is liposuction right for me? 

Liposuction isn't used for overall weight loss. But it's an excellent option for patients who want to remove fat that's unresponsive to diet or exercise. Liposuction works to sculpt your body and provides a smoother, firmer appearance.

Before receiving this type of procedure, you meet with Dr. Craig Foster for an in-depth consultation. During the consultation, Dr. Foster reviews your medical history and discusses realistic expectations for the outcome of your liposuction procedure.

There are many different types of liposuction. Dr. Foster can explain which procedure he might use to help you meet your aesthetic goals. He can also identify which area of your body can be sculpted or contoured during a liposuction procedure. 

What happens during a liposuction procedure?

Dr. Foster performs procedures in his state-of-the-art Manhattan surgical suite. The surgical facility is staffed by trained experts, including a board-certified anesthesiologist. The anesthesiologist chooses which type of anesthesia or sedation you need for your procedure.

Depending on your individual treatment goals, you may receive manual liposuction or laser-assisted liposuction. Both forms of liposuction are highly effective for body contouring. Before your procedure, Dr. Foster will explain which techniques he plans to use.

When your procedure is complete, you can rest in a private recovery suite until you're ready to go home. Dr. Foster and his team provide detailed discharge instructions about your recovery and at-home care.

What kind of results can I expect?

Liposuction is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Results often vary based on the skill of the surgeon. Treatment plans must also be personally tailored for each patient depending on their body type, skin tone, and more.

Dr. Foster has the expertise needed to produce exceptional results. A world-renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Foster is often named as one of New York's top doctors. His knowledge and skill are widely acknowledged in the medical community, and he frequently lectures on liposuction techniques at national conferences.
