Tumescent Liposuction NYC

Tumescent Liposuction NYC Despite some claims, winning the battle of the bulge is not as simple as adopting a healthy lifestyle. Some people see excellent results from diet and exercise. However, some are predisposed to obesity due to genetic factors. Tumescent liposuction is a precise and minimally invasive fat removal procedure available at Dr. Ostad’s New York office.

Understanding obesity and body fat

The human body tends to rejuvenate itself regularly. Many types of cells, such as skin, have short lifecycles. They die off, and new ones are created in an ongoing cycle. However, that is not the case with all cell types, namely fat cells.

By the time you reach adulthood, the number and location of fat cells in your body is fixed. If you gain fat, those cells enlarge to accommodate it. If you lose fat, they shrink. That is why it seems as if every calorie goes straight to your hips, abdomen, or whatever your problem area may be.

About the tumescent liposuction procedure

Liposuction can end the frustration of fighting against genetics to contour your body. It actually removes fat cells, for permanent results. Even if you gain weight after treatment, it will not be distributed in the same way, because you have fewer fat cells in the treated area.

Areas that can be treated include:
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Inner/outer thighs
  • Arms
  • Submental or “double chin”
  • Ankles
  • Knees
Tumescent liposuction is an outpatient procedure and does not require general anesthesia. A tumescent solution (local anesthetic) is injected into the targeted fatty tissue. It firms the fat and numbs the area, making liposuction more comfortable and efficient.
