Liposuction

Ideal Patient:

  • Excess fat deposits on body, neck or face
  • Fat that does not respond to diet or exercise

The Method:

Do you have unwanted fat in areas that you just can’t seem to rid yourself of no matter how hard you try? Liposuction may be the procedure for you. Liposuction reshapes the body’s silhouette with removal of excess fat. Common areas for liposuction include:

  • abdomen
  • hips / “love handles”
  • thighs
  • chin
  • neck
  • upper arms
  • breasts (male and female)
  • knees
  • calves
  • ankles

The Procedure:

Liposuction, also called lipoplasty or suction lipectomy, is the surgical removal of localized or regional excess fatty tissue. Under general anesthesia, a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through small, inconspicuous incisions hidden within the natural creases of the body. Using a controlled motion, dislodged fat is suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum. Compression garments may assist patients during the healing process to help skin conform to new body contours.

“My breasts are spectacular”

Dr. Kagan performed breast reduction on me and my breasts are spectacular! I can’t say enough about how fabulous they look. He exceeded my expectations. I had BR surgery by another Dr. years ago and he barely reduced them – so I suffered years and money with breasts that were still way too big. Thank you, Dr. Kagan. I couldn’t be happier!
