New York City’s Tumescent Liposuction Surgeon

Tumescent liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves the removal of excess fat that isn’t coming off with regular diet & exercise. The process involves injecting the area with a tumescent solution, (a mixture of saline, lidocaine and epinephrine), before the doctor uses a cannula to suction and remove the fat. The solution is designed to numb the area, and shrink any blood vessels, minimizing the bleeding and bruising that you may have.

One of the main motivators for getting tumescent liposuction is the want for a more contoured body shape. Individuals who are unhappy with stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise may turn to tumescent liposuction as a solution. Additionally, tumescent liposuction can help reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve self-confidence.

With tumescent liposuction being a popular cosmetic procedure in New York City and across the country, being in the hands of a highly qualified board-certified cosmetic surgeon, such as Dr. Frank, can significantly improve the outcome of your procedure.

What Are The Benefits of Tumescent Liposuction?

As one of the best cosmetic surgeons in New York City, Dr. Frank performs tumescent liposuction to help patients remove unwanted body fat and contour their natural body shape. Tumescent liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that offers a variety of benefits to both men and women. Some of the benefits of tumescent liposuction include:
1. Improved natural body shape: Tumescent liposuction is great at improving the desired natural shape across the belly, hips, arms, thighs, and chin.

2. Reduce unwanted body fat: Tumescent liposuction is effective at reducing body fat that won’t go away from diet & exercise.

3. Improved self-confidence: Many of Dr. Frank’s patients report feeling more confident about their everyday appearance.

    Are You a Good Candidate for Tumescent Liposuction?

    When evaluating a potential candidate for tumescent liposuction, the following factors are considered help determine if you are a good fit, including:

    1. Skin elasticity: Tumescent liposuction is most effective for patients with good skin elasticity, as the skin will typically contract and conform to the new contours of the body after the procedure.

    2. Excess fat: The procedure is intended for patients with a specific area of the body they want to contour or reshape that is resistant to diet and exercise. Tumescent liposuction is not as a weight loss solution.

    3. Health: You should be in good overall health and not have any underlying medical conditions that may put you at risk during the procedure.

    4. Realistic expectations: It’s important to have realistic expectations about what to expect from the procedure. Tumescent liposuction is not a weight-loss solution or a substitution for diet and exercise.

    5. Safety: A thorough medical history and examination should be done to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. We will also evaluate your health status and identify any possible risks you may have during the procedure.

    As one of New York City’s best cosmetic surgeons, it is standard to have a consultation before the procedure to determine your suitability for tumescent liposuction and to discuss the expected outcome, risks, and recovery process. We will also provide you with information on how to prepare for the procedure and what to expect before, during, and after the procedure.

    Best Areas to Target with Tumescent Liposuction

    Tumescent liposuction works for areas that are resistant to diet and exercise – it does not replace diet and exercise. As Dr. Frank says, he targets the last 10 pounds, not the first! The procedure works best when you are in good overall heath and at a stable weight, but frustrated with certain unresponsive areas such as:

    1. Abdomen: Tumescent liposuction can be used to remove excess fat from the abdominal area and create a more defined waistline.

    2. Thighs: Tumescent liposuction can be used to sculpt and contour the thighs, creating a more youthful and shapely appearance.

    3. Chin and Neck: Tumescent liposuction can be used to remove excess fat from the chin and neck area, creating a more defined jawline and reducing the appearance of a “double chin.”

    4. Arms: Tumescent liposuction can be used to remove excess fat from the upper arms, creating a more toned and defined appearance.

    5. Flanks (Love Handles): Tumescent liposuction can be used to remove excess fat from the flanks or “love handle” area, creating a more defined and shapely waistline.

    Patient Testimonial

    “He answered all of my questions directly before the procedure, the night before, (when I was nervous), during and afterward. His staff is so nice. They put me into a car to make sure that I got home safely. They called me the evening of and I had a couple of questions and they had Dr. Frank call me directly. He again put my mind at ease. The best part of all is that my legs look a million times better!! I thought I was stuck with these thighs for the long haul!! I can wear skinny jeans again without feeling like I am stuffed into them.”

    Tumescent Liposuction: Procedure Day

    Dr. Frank operates from his fully accredited surgical facility in New York City. Just a local anesthesia is used with mild sedation to increase safety, quicken your recovery, and reduce overall cost. Although minimally invasive, there is always a risk involved, but we do our best to minimize it and have a 100 percent safety record in all 20 years of experience.

    During the procedure, you will remain awake and be able to watch how your body is being sculpted. If you prefer, we can provide a sedative that allows you to take a nap, unaware of what is going on. Fat cells will be reduced using light and sound energy, and Dr. Frank will gently massage and suction them with micro-cannulas.

    Most patients feel very little discomfort during and after and can go back to work in 36-48 hours with only Tylenol needed. Our team will accompany you throughout the recovery process and will see you in follow-up appointments to ensure your satisfaction with the results and a safe recovery.
