Certain areas of fat and cellulite can resist even the most stringent workout and diet routines. In these cases, we offer liposuction for Westchester and New York City women and men in order to remove excess fat from many areas of the body including the cheeks, neck and jowls, breast or chest area, upper arms, waist and abdomen, back, hips and buttocks, and thighs. At our New York facilities, liposuction can be performed in conjunction with several other cosmetic procedures, including:

The surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Associates of New York were the first in Westchester County to use Smartlipo™ (laser-assisted liposuction). Smartlipo is a minimally invasive liposuction alternative that uses a laser to help liquefy fat cells. Because this liposuction uses laser technology, the fat is more easily removed and there is less damage to the surrounding tissue and nerves. Smartlipo also has the additional benefit of quick recovery time compared to other liposuction methods.
The CSANY Difference
Even with our years of experience performing liposuction in New York, we are continually educating ourselves and reevaluating our techniques to ensure we provide our patients with the finest care available. Every procedure we undertake is performed in our private and fully accredited plastic surgery facility. You can be confident in the knowledge that your liposuction will be performed by a highly experienced surgeon in a facility featuring the latest equipment. Our facility offers the same amenities, including the same patient monitoring devices, found in the finest hospital operating rooms.
At our practice, your liposuction procedure will be performed by removing targeted fat cells via a small, hollow tube called a cannula, through one or more tiny incisions near the area to be suctioned. Whenever possible, incisions are placed in areas where the body's natural creases will hide any potential scarring. The cannula is connected to a vacuum pressure unit and guided by your surgeon. The device then vacuums away the unwanted fat and cellulite – permanently.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will liposuction tighten my skin or remove cellulite?
Liposuction is not a skin tightening procedure, so patients should not expect to see improvement in cellulite or loose, lax skin. While Smartlipo is not a skin tightening procedure, it may improve the appearance of sagging or stretched skin by stimulating collagen production.
How much fat can be removed with a liposuction procedure?
While liposuction can remove a substantial amount of fat, it is not designed to be a weight loss procedure. Liposuction is ideal for removing localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. For more extensive fat removal, post weight loss surgery may be an option.
Will the fat return after my liposuction procedure?
By the time you are an adult, you have all the fat cells you will ever have. When you gain or lose weight, these fat cells expand or contract. Liposuction removes fat cells, and once they are removed, they will not grow back. However, surrounding areas can still gain weight, so liposuction should not be regarded as a substitute for adopting a healthy, active lifestyle.
