Liposuction & Liposculpture

Procedures that improve the contour of carefully chosen areas of a patient's body are known as liposculpture and liposuction. New York City Drs. Keegan and Vickery acknowledge that liposuction is a common procedure that is common across the country and will provide their affluent expertise to ensure a successful procedure. In both liposuction and liposculpture surgeries, a small tube is inserted into fatty areas between the skin and muscle, and a pump or syringe is used to remove excess fat.

Liposuction is not a good tool for generalized fat removal, but it can be an effective way to enhance the shape of certain body parts, including the abdomen, thighs, knees, and arms. Liposculpture is similar to liposuction, except that only small amounts of fat are moved during the procedure.

Good candidates for liposuction generally have all of the following characteristics:
  • localized pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise
  • firm, elastic skin that will adjust well to changes in body contour
  • good overall health
  • average or slightly above-average weight
A liposuction procedure can often be performed on an outpatient basis depending on the volume of tissue removed during a liposculpture or liposuction. New York City surgeons Keegan  and Vickery will help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas. Plastic surgery patients requiring an overnight stay enjoy one-on-one nursing care in our private, comfortable recovery rooms.
