Slim, tone female lying on the beachHave you ever met anyone who is completely satisfied with his or her body? The chances are, you haven’t. No matter how attractive and toned a person may seem, just about everyone has a problem area on the body. Most commonly, these trouble spots have to do with stubborn pockets of fat that do not go away, no matter how much exercise a person engages in and no matter how carefully they monitor their diet. Rather than hide or be ashamed of these imperfections, Dr. Craig Foster offers patients a way to treat them. Liposuction eliminates stubborn fat deposits to give patients the slender and toned appearance they desire. For those of our Manhattan patients who are liposuction candidates, this procedure can improve body contour and give patients a figure that they are eager to show off.

Is Liposuction Right for Me?

While no cosmetic procedure is right for everyone, liposuction appeals to a wide range of Dr. Foster’s patients, because stubborn fat is such a common problem. We always encourage patients to practice healthy eating habits and to stay physically active, but the truth is that not all body fat will respond to these efforts. Although liposuction should not be considered a weight loss solution, it can permanently rid the body of stubborn pockets of fat for those patients who are within a healthy weight range (or only slightly overweight) and are looking to target specific areas of the body in order to improve their figure. For patients who are healthy enough to undergo surgery, and for those who have realistic expectations for the results of liposuction treatment, this procedure can effectively tone and tighten any of the following areas of the body:

  • Tummy
  • Inner and/or outer thighs
  • Hips
  • Love handles
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Neck

In order to achieve the best results with liposuction, it is ideal to perform this procedure on patients who have good muscle tone as well as a good amount of skin elasticity. This will ensure that the skin and muscles respond well to changes in body contour, giving patients a toned appearance, rather than leaving them with an excess of loose skin. There are several liposuction techniques to consider, so Dr. Foster will choose a method that is well-suited to each patient’s body type and their specific needs and aesthetic goals.

Enhancing Liposuction Treatment

For many patients, liposuction is able to effectively slim and tone the body to give patients the cosmetic results they desire. However, there are cases in which liposuction alone may not be adequate treatment to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals. The good news is that liposuction pairs very well with a number of other cosmetic treatments. By combining liposuction with other procedures, Dr. Foster can further enhance the results of liposuction to give patients the appearance they desire. Some procedures that are commonly performed in conjunction with liposuction include the following:

  • Tummy tuck
  • Thigh lift
  • Arm lift
  • Face lift
