Top Reasons for Laser Liposuction

Surgery Tips for Smartlipo in NYC & Long Island

Every year, we treat hundreds of patients. Throughout the world, liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, for many reasons. There are several reasons why men and women seek this type of treatment, mainly to address the issue of body contours.


Some believe that treatment by our body sculpting NYC & Long Island experts is a quick and easy way to lose weight. While a patient does indeed come away from liposuction surgery up to a few pounds lighter, this procedure is not designed for weight loss; it is designed to give more contour to those who have reached a healthy body weight they are happy with.

As a very effective cosmetic treatment, Smart Lipo melts and removes excess fat that is not easily removed through diet and exercise. However, these two lifestyle habits are recommended in order to enjoy long lasting results from the treatment.


Liposuction is a viable cosmetic solution even for those who are fit and trim naturally. As we age, there are areas of the body that tend to simply not respond as well to diet and exercise.

Naturally trim patients find that their bodies become somewhat asymmetrical over time, and liposuction is a great way to treat this. For women, common treatment areas include arm liposuction, the tummy, thighs, and buttocks. Men often want to address love handles in order to create great symmetry and overall balanced body proportions.


Our Body Sculpting NYC Surgeons Discuss the Top Reasons for Smart Lipo in NYCThere is little more that negatively impacts a man as do man boobs. Excess male breast tissue, known as gynecomastia, is a condition that our body sculpting NYC & Long Island experts regularly treat.

Many men are embarrassed by their man boobs - so much so that they do not seek the treatment that could help their situation due to a fear of discussing the problem. The last thing a man with gynecomastia wants to do is show is chest, sometimes even to his doctor.

There is no reason to live with gynecomastia. Today, men are discovering that they can once again feel confident in their bodies. Once gynecomastia is successfully treated with laser liposuction, man boobs are gone for good in most cases where a medical condition, persistent hormonal imbalance, or medication are not causing the breast issues.

A Question of Safety

With the advent of laser technology, liposuction has become safer than ever before. With traditional liposuction, a patient may have had to face general anesthesia and a night or two in the hospital.

Using laser technology, fat is melted away and therefore removed as liquid rather than a gelatinous solid. This single factor allows for the surgeon to use smaller tools and make smaller incisions.

With this, more areas of the body can be treated, such as the neck or cheeks, and patients may receive treatments with only local anesthesia and a mild sedative. Laser liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure and a patient is able to return to normal activity more quickly than what is possible with traditional liposuction.
