Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S., and according to data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), it was one of the top five surgical procedures in 2011. Dr. Thomas Loeb, a top plastic surgeon in NYC, recently appeared on ABC News to discuss the many benefits of microliposuction – a newer liposuction technique designed for patients who want to slim down quickly without major down time.

Liposuction in New York City

While traditional liposuction is excellent for removing stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, the procedure in known for its lingering swelling, which equals a longer recovery time.

As Dr. Loeb explains, microliposuction offers a less invasive approach, and patients who are only having one body part addressed can have the procedure on their lunch break and be back to work the very next day. For many women who are considering liposuction, this simpler technique can reduce recovery time by up to ten days. The treatment is highly effective for body contouring such as hips, thighs, love handles, and the stomach – areas where fat tends to accumulate.

Microliposuction has a quick healing time because of its ultra slim cannula – the steel tube used to remove excess fat – which results in less bruising and swelling. Dr. Loeb explains that after the procedure, patients can be swimsuit ready in as little as three weeks.

According to Dr. Loeb, microliposuction also allows surgeons to be more precise, offering patients consistent results and less dimpling of the skin. Those who opt for the procedure are impressed with their slimmer figure and love the minimal recovery time, stating their only regret was not having it done sooner.
