Virtually everyone has pockets of fat that stubbornly refuse to respond to exercise or changes in diet. These areas are typically localized on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, even under the chin, and they’re not going anywhere. Liposuction can help as a minimally-invasive procedure by our double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Bill Aydin in Paramus, NJ. Fat pockets are suctioned out through a thin tube called a cannula to achieve a slimmer contour. Only small incisions are needed and they will not require stitches. Dr. Aydin utilizes the tumescent technique, where an anesthetic solution is first injected to minimize pain and firm the fat while making it easier to remove. The accuracy and ease of liposuction has increased dramatically throughout the years, and it is a safe procedure to get the results you want.

"39 Year Old, 3 Young Kids, Working Mom - Paramus, NJ - I had liposuction done on my upper/lower abdomen and flanks. I was awake for the whole procedure which took approximately 2-3 hours. Local anesthesia was used. I felt sore and bruised up for several days after, but I was back to work and back to my usual routine 3 days after the procedure. It has been 2 months since and the results are fantastic. I am so happy with my contour now. I highly recommend going for this procedure if you want fast and noticeable results.

"34 Year Old Male, Tumescent Liposuction of Lower and Upper Abdomen, Flanks, and Upper Back - Personable, easy to talk to, patient, attentive to detail, exceptional at his practice."- E. / RealSelf / May 30, 2017
Tumescent liposuction, known as the "Super-Wet" approach, is a suction-assisted (SAL) technique that uses a solution and power-aided motor to help remove stubborn fat. The surgeon injects the solution, made of saline, lidocaine and epinephrine (to control bleeding), into the problem areas. The surgeon then inserts the cannula attached to the motor to remove fat cells from the body at a controlled speed. The motor helps surgeons remove anywhere from several ounces to a few pounds of fat.
Another surgical technique commonly used is the ultrasound-assisted (UAL), or ultrasonic, approach. Surgeons perform this dual process on denser areas of fat, such as in the thighs and stomach. During this technique, ultrasound waves loosen and melt fat into a liquid. Surgeons then use the cannula to extract the solution. This surgical method is more popular among men wanting more defined and contoured muscles.
Laser-assisted liposuction uses laser technology on specified areas of fat to burst energy that will loosen and liquefy the fat for removal. LAL liposuction includes brands such as SmartLipo, SlimLipo, Lipolite Laser Liposculpture, LipoLite, and ProLipo PLUS.
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia at a hospital or surgery center. The procedure lasts about 30 minutes for each body part. It can be a stand-alone surgery, or combined with other procedures. However, the surgeon may suggest performing the surgery over a period of time for the safety of the patient. After surgery, patients are required to wear a compression garment to help the body adjust to its new shape. Bruising and swelling will subside within 1 week, but patients will not see final results for several months. Liposuction does leave a small scar, but it fades over time.

Is it Safe?
While today’s surgical techniques are safe, patients can experience poor results from inexperienced surgeons. It is important for patients to do their research, and find an experienced surgeon that can help them achieve the best, most natural-looking results.
The results of liposuction can be seen for many years following surgery if the patient follows a healthy diet and exercise program. Removed fat cells do not come back, but patients can still gain weight if their remaining fat cells grow.
Too Much Fat?
Yes, there can be too much fat. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons does not recommend removing more than 10 pounds of fat for the safety of the patient. Removing more than 10 pounds is considered high-volume liposuction, which increases the chances of complications from the surgery. Patients are advised to be near or at their ideal weight before undergoing liposuction.
While liposuction removes fat and improves contour and shape, it does not address sagging or drooping skin. If skin laxity is a concern, patients can talk to the surgeon during the consultation to discuss their options for improving skin texture, such as a tummy tuck, thigh, neck, arm or butt lift.
