One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States, liposuction (lipectomy) sculpts the body by removing fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. Fat can be removed from many places on the body, including:

  • Abdomen and Back
  • Waist
  • Hips and Buttocks
  • Thighs and Knees
  • Chin and Cheeks
  • Neck
  • Upper Arms

Dr. Weinberg has performed liposuction in New York City for many years and is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery. His Manhattan plastic surgery clinic offers both ultrasound-assisted lipectomy and suction-assisted lipectomy. If you are interested in learning more, to schedule your visit.

Liposuction Recovery Time and Procedure Details

Liposuction is performed using a vacuum-type surgical instrument. The incision is small, and the device is guided around the area to suction fat and other fluids. Upon completion, the site is bandaged, and pain medication is prescribed for any discomfort.

Recuperation times vary but are typically faster for healthy, rested, well-nourished and hydrated patients. Recovery time may also depend on the type of liposuction you have, such as thigh liposuction, arm liposuction or belly fat removal surgery. You are required to visit Dr. Weinberg post-surgery to monitor your recovery progress and determine how quickly you can return to your normal daily activities. Most patients return to work within ten days of liposuction surgery.


The liposuction procedure has helped many patients achieve a natural, firmer look. Dr. Weinberg uses state-of-the-art equipment to remove unsightly fat from all over the body. Take a look at how patients’ body contours have changed after arm liposuction and butt and thigh liposuction.
