Liposuction

You stick to your diet and follow your fitness program faithfully. Yet you still have frustrating fat deposits in areas such as your tummy, hips, and thighs. For such concerns, liposuction in Staten Island with Dr. Louis Cutolo has proved to be the ideal body contouring solution for many men and women from Brooklyn and throughout New York City. In addition to the lower body, liposuction can remove fat from the neck, upper arms, and the upper back (known among women as the "bra bulge").

Take the first step to a slimmer, more sculpted body. Request a complimentary consultation online, or call us today at (718) 720-9400 to schedule a visit.

Liposuction Before & After

Who is a Good Candidate?

Liposuction may help if you:

  • Want to reduce fat in specific regions of your body, such as your back, arms, abdomen, waistline, hips, and thighs.
  • Regularly exercise and follow a healthy diet and your weight is stable.
  • Have good skin tone. If you have excess abdominal skin and lax muscles, Dr. Cutolo may recommend a tummy tuck rather than liposuction.
  • Have persistent areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise!

Your Procedure

Always up-to-date on the latest technologies and techniques, Dr. Cutolo will discuss your options with you during your consultation – guiding you through the techniques that are "gimmicks" and those that are "tried and true" that will safely yield the most consistent and best results! He also will provide you with details on what to expect during the surgery.

To keep you comfortable throughout your procedure, Dr. Cutolo performs liposuction for his New York City and Staten Island patients under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. After making a tiny incision, he inserts a narrow tube, known as a cannula, to sculpt and remove the fatty tissue in the treatment area. He then closes the incisions meticulously to minimize scarring, using a compression dressing or bandage to reduce swelling and provide support. The procedure usually lasts 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the extent of the procedure.

Recovery

After your surgery, Dr. Cutolo typically recommends light walking to help with circulation. He will provide you with prescription medication to manage any discomfort and antibiotics to prevent infection. You may need to wear a support garment after your surgery. Most patients can return to work and their regular activities in 1 to 2 weeks, resuming vigorous exercise after about 6 weeks.

Results and Benefits

For both men and women, liposuction procedures can replace those frustrating saddle bags, love handles, and other bulges with beautiful new contours. Patients frequently tell Dr. Cutolo how delighted they feel with their slimmer shape and improved proportions. By maintaining your weight and staying on a healthy food and fitness plan, you can enjoy the benefits of liposuction indefinitely.
