North Shore Cosmetic Surgery in Long Island, NY, offers the most advanced treatments to remove fat from the body. Lipo, or liposuction, is a treatment that reduces pockets of fat from love handles, tummy, buttocks, and thighs to create a more sculpted, defined figure. Liposuction in Long Island can treat several areas in one appointment. When we see you for your consultation, Long Island plastic surgeons Dr. James Romanelli, Dr. John Layliev, or Dr. Yee Cheng Low will first assess areas of concern to help you achieve your personal aesthetic goals. We want to help you feel and look your absolute best.
Ideal candidates for liposuction
Fat removal surgery is an appropriate treatment for patients at an ideal weight but has stubborn pockets of fat that will not resolve with diet or exercise. If you are considering liposuction, you should not have excessive skin laxity as liposuction does not tighten skin, but removes fat cells. It is also essential to know that liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss. At the time of your surgery consultation, our plastic surgeons will discuss your expectations.
What is the liposuction surgical technique?
Liposuction is performed in an outpatient setting under general anesthesia. A small incision is placed through the skin so that a cannula can be inserted through the incision. A cannula is a tool that makes it easier to release the fatty tissue that is being suctioned. After the desired amount of fat deposits are reduced, one of our plastic surgeons seals the small incision.
Based on the number of sections treated, your Long Island liposuction procedure may require several hours. In the recovery suite, your post-operation nurse will assist you with any discomfort or pain and look after your incision sites, and then you are discharged.

At North Shore Cosmetic Surgery, we offer the advanced high definition 360-degree liposuction, or circumferential lipo, which involves a custom removal of excess fat for the abdominals, love handles, and the back. The beauty of this advanced Long Island liposuction process is that the entire region is slimmed, creating a beautifully sculpted outcome.
It’s typical to have bruising and swelling for one to two weeks, and you will have any stitches removed within seven days of your procedure. The most important thing to do after liposuction is to give your body time to rest and heal. Once you return to work after your surgery, you should do your best to take it slow and easy. To increase your strength and stamina, perform very light workouts, and go for walks as advised by our plastic surgeon. Keep in mind that you may see some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take about six months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
