Body Procedures Offered by Dr. Frank
Liposuction New York City
, the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States, can potentially transform areas of localized fat into slimmer and more sculpted areas. When it comes to liposuction and fat reduction procedures, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank of NY knows his craft. He also recognizes that every treatment he performs should be best suited for the individual patient. As a specialist in minimally-invasive liposuction procedures, Dr. Frank expertly integrates state-of-the-art technologies into his NYC dermatology practice. As a result, he continually forges new ground and is able to offer highly tailored fat removal treatments to a range of patients. When he performs tumescent liposuction - a procedure that eliminates fat via suctioning through small stainless steel tubes - he often complements treatment with advanced laser and ultrasound technologies to facilitate more efficient removal. Frequently using fat melting devices such as SmartLipo and VASER, he is able achieve results and reduce patient discomfort. Liposuction can be used to treat fat deposits in such areas as the abdomen, arms, love handles, and saddle bags.
If you are looking for a non-surgical fat removal procedure that can also give the skin an extra lift, SmartLipo is a novel, laser-assisted approach to body sculpting. Known as laser liposuction, this innovative technology melts fat and works to tighten skin at the same time. Not only does it help contour the body, it may improve skin laxity, making it a particularly effective treatment in cases where fat deposits and sagging skin are both present, such as post-pregnancy abdominal area. Requiring only a local anesthesia, this innovative procedure utilizes heat energy produced by the laser SmartLipo™ device to target and melt fat - making it easy to suction out. Because the device is so precise, side effects, such as swelling are reduced. As one of the best cosmetic dermatologists in NYC, Dr. Frank performs this fat reduction treatment in his NYC office, helping his patients achieve consistent results.
VASER® LipoSelection, an alternative to traditional liposuction, uses ultrasound energy to safely dislodge stubborn fat from hard to treat areas. When ultrasound energy penetrates the skin layers, it creates a thermal energy that specifically reaches and dissolves fat cells. Fatty pockets on the back, male breasts and other hard to treat areas are reduced, without harming any surrounding tissue. Compared to some other technologies, it can remove a greater amount of fat in a shorter amount of time. At the 5th Avenue Dermatology Surgery and Laser Center in NYC, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank understands the nuances of the different fat reduction technologies. He incorporates a variety of devices, such as VASER Lipo, into his fat removal procedures so that he can calibrate and customize his treatments.
