Liposuction

Liposuction by Neil Tanna, MD

Liposuction is a very common procedure used to slim and contour specific areas of the body. It can be used to remove unwanted fat from the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, waist, arms, back, chest, chin, and neck. It can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), facelift, or cosmetic breast surgery.

Dr. Tanna can perform liposuction throughout the entire body to sculpt and treat areas with excess fat. Small incision sites are strategically placed in hidden areas. The procedure has little recovery time and can be performed on an outpatient basis. After the removal of the fat, a compression garment is worn to help contour the skin around the recently treated area.
