Many people complain of stubborn fat deposits that don't ever seem to go away despite exercise and a healthy diet.

You can achieve your desired contours in key areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, or other areas with liposuction.

Dr. Oren Lerman in Manhattan, NY, can use liposuction to help you eliminate stubborn fat and realize your goals.

Liposuction Is a Body Contouring Tool

This surgical method of removing fat deposits can complement a healthy lifestyle by adding attractive definition to your body lines. In general, candidates should be in good health, and within 20 pounds of their ideal body weight. Patients should bear in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss solution. Instead, it can provide an attractive aesthetic complement to a healthy lifestyle.

For the right patient, liposuction can help clothing fit better, make you look and feel more comfortable in your bathing suit, and improve your self-confidence. Ultimately, choosing to have liposuction or body contouring surgery is about helping you achieve the goals that you might otherwise have been unable to reach with diet and exercise alone.

Watch Dr. Lerman Discuss the Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction is a surgery that reduces fat deposits, especially stubborn ones that will not go away through diet and exercise. Liposuction is a relatively simple surgical procedure that is not intended as a weight loss surgery. Instead, it is a body sculpting method. Dr. Lerman offers a variety of liposuction methods to contour your body, including ultrasound liposuction. Meet with Dr. Lerman at our New York City office located in the heart of Manhattan or our Westchester County office in Mt. Kisco.

Areas of the Body Treated with Liposuction

Liposuction can remove fat cells from most areas of the body, including:





Upper arms

Under the chin



The Liposuction Procedure

When patients come to our Manhattan or Westchester County offices for a consultation, we will determine which technique is most appropriate for your needs and plan your surgery. Generally speaking, patients can expect:

Day of Procedure


Surgery begins with a local anesthesia to maintain your comfort. Depending on the extent of your treatment, we can provide general anesthesia along with local anesthesia.

Preparing the Treatment Area

Next, tiny incisions are made at the treatment site. These incisions are very small; with proper aftercare, they are highly unlikely to result in noticeable scarring.

Fat Removal

A thin, tubular device called a cannula will be inserted through the incision. Using a gentle back and forth motion, the cannula will break up the fat cells and suction them away.

Completing Surgery

Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, a suture is used to close the incisions. Over-the-counter pain medication is often sufficient to maintain your comfort after surgery, but other medications can be prescribed as needed.

Enhance Your Results


Combining Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

Liposuction can be performed as a stand-alone procedure, or in combination with other treatments for enhanced outcomes. When combined with breast augmentation, breast lift, or tummy tuck, liposuction is often the finishing touch that provides stunning overall results. We can discuss all of these body contouring options during your consultation at our Manhattan or Westchester County offices.

The Liposuction Recovery Timeline

Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis, with recovery taking place in the comfort of the patient’s home.

Patients should expect to wear bandages, tape, and a compression garment to reduce swelling and bruising. Your compression garment will also help to improve circulation and maintain your comfort as you heal.
Within a few days, patients can return to work and limited daily activities, but heavy exercise should be avoided for up to six weeks.
Side effects such as discomfort, swelling, and bruising usually last for a few weeks, but start to get progressively better after the first two or three days.
The duration of your recovery will depend on the extent of your liposuction, and whether other cosmetic procedures were performed.

Your Choice of Surgeon

Can Make All the Difference


As with all surgical procedures, there are risks associated with liposuction. These include infection, an uneven skin surface, or fluid imbalance. The risk of complications can be significantly reduced when the procedure is performed by a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and in an accredited facility. One of the most important steps in your liposuction experience is choosing a reputable surgeon. Dr. Lerman consistently provides safe surgery with excellent results, and he is available for consultations at our New York City office located in the heart of Manhattan, or our Westchester County office in Mt. Kisco.
