Why do patients choose liposuction?

While good nutrition and regular exercise are important to looking and feeling great, it is not always the answer to body shaping. Regardless of physical fitness, many patients still struggle with lingering, areas of fat. In many cases this is due to genetics, which means that no amount of diet or exercise will eliminate that fat. Liposuction allows your plastic surgeon to remove targeted fat pockets to give you the body you’ve been dreaming about.

How liposuction works:

Liposuction can be performed several ways, but the most common is called tumescent liposuction. Prior to the fat removal, an anesthetic solution is injected into the targeted area to reduce bleeding and make the fat easier to suction. The procedure takes about an hour per area treated.

Liposuction vs. tummy tuck

While both liposuction and tummy tuck can improve the shape of the waistline, they are performed for different reasons. Tummy tucks remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. Liposuction is strictly for the removal of fat and is ideal for patients who have small pockets of excess fat, but are close to their ideal weight. We recommend tummy tucks more often for patients who have had extreme weight loss or who have been pregnant.

Preparing for Liposuction

Patients who smoke will need to stop at least four weeks prior to liposuction. There are also certain medications such as blood thinners that may increase risks. These and other concerns will be discussed during the consultation.

If you are ready for a leaner appearance, call Manhattan plastic surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan, at (212) 734 4488 for an appointment.

What our patients say


Dear Dr. Kwan, It's been six weeks since I had my over four procedures done and the results are all amazing. I am especially impressed with my tummy tuck. No matter how much I exercised I could never achieve the abs I wanted. It's only six weeks and my scar is already fading. My clothes all fit incredibly well now and I am a true 32 waste!

I can't wait until the summer to show off my abs. You are amazingly gifted and an artist as well. I am so glad I was recommended to you from my dermatologist.

In addition, your staff is extremely professional and is very knowledgeable about the pre and post operative procedures. I was also very impressed in the number of follow up calls I received after my surgery to check my status. Thanks for everything...
