Remove Stubborn Fat and Achieve a Tighter, Toned Look with Liposuction

Image of liposuction patientIf diet and exercise have failed to remove stubborn fat deposits, Dr. Stephen Greenberg can help. He provides liposuction at his offices serving Long Island, NY, Manhattan, and the greater New York City area.

Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States, and Dr. Greenberg performs many liposuction procedures every week using the latest technologies. He strives to achieve the best in body contouring by using a combination of techniques, customized to each patient to ensure optimum results. Dr. Greenberg has been featured in many magazines, and on CBS, ABC, and NBC news programs as a specialist in liposuction, smart lipo, and body sculpture.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction (lipoplasty) is a procedure that contours the body by removing unwanted fat and inches from the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms, and chin. Liposuction is not a replacement for diet or exercise, but it helps patients get rid of stubborn areas that do not respond to other weight loss methods. With weight loss, the fat cells in the body only shrink - they do not disappear. Liposuction actually removes the fat cells from your body.

Dr. Greenberg utilizes a unique combination of tumescent liposuction, along with external ultrasound and power-assisted liposuction. Used in conjunction, these methods offer the patient smoother contours, quick recovery, and minimal pain and bruising. There will be a noticeable difference immediately after liposuction, and your new contours will remain permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

If you gain weight after liposuction, it will distribute itself evenly throughout the body and will not settle in the same problem areas. There are myriad benefits of liposuction that patients enjoy following their procedure. For patients interested in non-surgical treatments to reduce body fat, SculpSure® may be more appropriate. Our team can discuss all your options with you during an in-depth consultation.

What is Smart Lipo?

Smart lipo removes fat cells from the body, and it is one of the newest technologies offered by Dr. Greenberg. Smart lipo is virtually painless and highly effective at removing unwanted body fat using laser technology that can differentiate between fat cells and other tissues. Once the smart lipo laser dissolves fat cells, they are simply suctioned out of the body. Because of the innovative technology behind smart lipo, there is often less scarring and a faster recovery time than with traditional liposuction.

Liposuction or Smart Lipo Consultation

Dr. Stephen Greenberg takes a great deal of time explaining liposuction options and procedures to his patients. He will examine you to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, as well as show you pre-operative and post-operative pictures of liposuction patients.

Dr. Greenberg will evaluate the elasticity of your skin, and he will give you his honest professional opinion on how to best improve your body contours. The honesty, rapport, and trust that is established at the initial consultation is extremely important.

Dr. Greenberg will see you for your consultation at one of his two state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery centers in Manhattan or Long Island. You can discuss the costs of the procedure at this time.

Liposuction Surgery

Before undergoing liposuction, you will be provided with pre-operative instructions, and the doctor will answer any questions you may have about recovery or potential complications

With weight loss, the fat cells in the body only shrink - they do not disappear. Liposuction actually removes the fat cells from your body.

Liposuction incisions are usually not conspicuous, and are often hidden in skin creases. Your procedure will be performed in Dr. Greenberg's fully licensed ambulatory center. On the day of your surgery, Dr. Greenberg will re-evaluate you, and together, you will decide exactly which areas will be treated. 

The liposuction procedure can take anywhere from one hour to three hours, depending on what is being done. You will then be able to rest in our recovery room until you are ready to go home.

Liposuction Recovery

Dr. Greenberg will also provide you with post-operative instructions and explain the process of liposuction recovery. He will see you one or two days after your surgery to check in.

You will wear a post-operative garment for two to four weeks to ensure proper healing. You may experience slight discomfort for a few days after surgery, but you will be able to return to normal activities within a few days. In order to maximize results, Dr. Greenberg offers all of his patients a complimentary package of Endermologie treatments to help reduce swelling and cellulite.
