Liposuction

Customized Body Contouring in New Jersey

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat. At Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey, our team of top-rated plastic surgeons is highly experienced in advanced liposuction techniques for beautiful, natural-looking body contouring.

The removal of excess accumulations of fat from specific areas of the body is called liposculpture. The most commonly used technique is called tumescent liposuction, and it has steadily evolved over the past fifteen years. Tumescent means that the tissues have been prefilled with saline and dilute epinephrine to reduce bruising and facilitate fat removal. The cannulas, or tubes, we use are extremely small, enabling us to precisely control and sculpt the tissues. Occasionally, we will incorporate ultrasound energy or the power-assisted technique for extended cases.

Genetics, age, prior pregnancy, and weight changes can make it difficult to achieve a slim, toned figure. Liposuction can help to eliminate fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, love handles, arms, and more!
