Keep reading if you are curious about liposuction in NYC, and get in touch with a Viva Eve specialist to find out if this is the right procedure for you.

What is Liposuction?

Although it has been around for quite a few decades, liposuction still seems like a fairly advanced treatment in the world of cosmetic surgery. That’s because it is a groundbreaking procedure that removes fat that insists on staying put no matter how many days per week you visit the gym.

Our world-class, board-certified surgeon at Viva Eve offers the best liposuction options for women in NYC. Different types of lipo techniques are available and can be chosen depending on your exact needs and desires.

Types of Liposuction

Traditional liposuction procedures are performed using a small cannula, a thin tube inserted into the body through a tiny incision. This tube then sucks out unwanted fat cells, removing them from the body almost instantly.

There is also laser-assisted liposuction, which is a more advanced treatment that breaks up fat before removing it. The laser also helps the skin retain its elasticity, shrinking around the area instead of causing creases and wrinkles.

How do you prepare for Liposuction?

Anyone considering liposuction has probably wondered how to prepare for the procedure. While it’s natural to be nervous, the good news is that there isn’t a lot of preparation involved.

Your plastic surgeon will provide instructions on how to prep, including asking you to get lab testing or a medical evaluation to verify whether you can safely undergo general anesthesia, as well as adjusting your medications (if you take any), and asking you to pause on smoking and taking aspirin or other blood thinners. 

Why Undergo Liposuction in NYC?

Our number one priority at Viva Eve is to listen to what women really want and provide the best, most holistic healthcare services accordingly. So many of our patients are looking for a way to change their bodies that isn’t super invasive and won’t leave scars. For some, liposuction in NYC is the perfect solution.

But why get liposuction in particular?

If you’re someone who is having a hard time achieving their ideal figure all on your own, liposuction can get you over that final hump so you can achieve your goal. Liposuctions generally get rid of stubborn fat in the following locations:

  • Stomach and abdomen
  • Arms
  • Upper back
  • Flanks
  • Chest
  • Calves
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Thighs
  • Butt
  • Hips

The body will sometimes create solidified deposits of fat that sit in certain parts of your body without ever going away. No amount of exercise or dieting will get rid of these fat cells. It’s integral to your health that you seek out a cosmetic procedure that can get rid of this fat for you, encouraging you to get back on track with a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for the Best Liposuction New York City Has to Offer?

Almost everyone who visits our Viva Eve offices in New York (including Queens and Manhattan) is a good candidate for liposuction surgery. We do our best to provide an individualized service plan for each and every patient, as we believe in your uniqueness as your superpower.

Some patients may or may not feel that liposuction in NYC is the perfect option for them, however. Our typical liposuction patients are:

  • Dealing with fat deposits that are localized and won’t go away
  • Close to achieving their ideal body image and size but need a little extra help
  • Understanding the realistic expectations of this procedure
  • In good general health, both physically and mentally

We believe that a lot of doctors will turn a blind eye to the real needs and desires of women who are pursuing these kinds of services. Viva Eve creates a unique experience that allows you to sit in the driver’s seat while being educated on every possible solution that is available to you.

What can you expect during a Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as love handles” (excess fatty areas that sit on either side of the waist above the hips), the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks to create a more sculpted, defined figure. This cosmetic procedure can treat several areas in one appointment. 

Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring.

What is the followup and recovery like for Liposuction?

The most important thing you can do after your procedure is to follow your post-op instructions. This ensures you will have as comfortable of a recovery as possible. The following are some points you should follow during the recovery process, but remember that every individual differs and these are only suggestions:

First 72 hours: Lay down and rest. Make sure you’re wearing the compression garment you’ve been provided and follow the in-depth care instructions for your incisions and drain sites.

Weeks 1+2: After the first few days, you should feel less pain and have greater mobility. Keep following your care instructions, but avoid doing things like lifting and moving heavy objects. You may plan to go back to work after two weeks, depending on your job and your doctor’s advice. 

Weeks 3-6: With much of your swelling having subsided, the pain should be almost gone. As swelling and bruising heals, you’ll be feeling better and your mobility will increase. At this point, you can begin walking around your neighborhood and getting light exercise.  

What are the potential costs for Liposuction?

Since cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure, insurance doesn’t cover the cost. It is best to answer potential costs during a face-to-face evaluation, as pricing varies depending on your specific case and the level of cosmetic adjustment you want. For pricing information on specific procedures, please contact our Cosmetic Concierge at 212-988-2111.

There are a few risks that come with liposuction. While there is an incredibly low chance of these risks occurring during a procedure at Viva Eve, it is still important for you to know about them:

  • The treated area may feel numb for some time.
  •  There are those who have allergic reactions to lidocaine, the local anesthesia used during the procedure.

Like all kinds of surgical procedures, it is possible to get an infection after your liposuction surgery. Our liposuction surgery centers in NYC are fitted with top-notch sanitation equipment and practices that ensure your safety at all times.

Liposuction FAQs

1. Will Liposuction Help Me Lose Weight?

A lot of people are under the misconception that liposuction is a weight loss surgery. It is not to be used as a tool for losing weight, but rather as a way to remove stubborn fat that just won’t stop holding onto you even after you went through a strenuous exercise routine.

2. Are Liposuction Results Permanent?

Thankfully, yes! Once stubborn fat cells are removed from a certain area of your body, they can never grow there again. There will not be any room for fat cells to expand, even if you gain weight in the future.

3. Does Liposuction Create Scars?

There will inevitably be some scarring from the liposuction process. However, it only takes a very small incision in order to fit the cannula into the body. You may not even notice your scars over time.
