Explore the Benefits of Liposuction
Genetics, aging, and the effects of pregnancy can lead to frustration over problem areas. Even with consistent diet and exercise, excess fat can persist and detract from your appearance. Liposuction is a safe and effective procedure that has allowed millions of patients to improve their figures by precisely targeting and removing these hard-to-eliminate pockets of fat. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has used his surgical skill and experience to provide the remarkable benefits of liposuction to a diverse range of patients in Long Island, NY.

Enhanced Appearance and Confidence
Liposuction is an incredibly popular cosmetic treatment designed to help eliminate unwanted pockets of fat that have accumulated disproportionately around the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, neck, or nearly anywhere throughout the body. During the procedure, Dr. Greenberg will make a series of small incisions in the treatment area. He will insert a thin tube, called a cannula, to gently break up and suction out unwanted fat cells. Once he has achieved your desired results, the incisions will be carefully closed.
By removing stubborn fat from these areas, liposuction can help you achieve smooth and toned body contours, enhancing your aesthetic appeal. After undergoing treatment, patients will often experience boosted confidence simply because their clothes fit better. Liposuction patients can even begin to participate in activities that they had previously avoided because of concern over their appearance.

For many patients, liposuction can reflect a commitment to a healthier, more active lifestyle. After achieving improved body contours, many patients become motivated to help maintain results through strict diet and exercise regimes. Liposuction can also be used as a less invasive form of breast reduction surgery, helping women alleviate back and neck pain caused by the weight of overly large breasts. With proper care, your liposuction results can last for many years to come.

Patients should understand that the full aesthetic benefits of liposuction may not be visible for up to six months, as the skin needs time to tighten over the treated area.
