Liposuction Fat Reduction

Manhattan Beauty Project offers many advanced techniques to remove your unwanted, undesirable fat. Lipo, or liposuction, is a reshaping procedure that removes pockets of fat from the flanks, tummy, buttocks, thighs, and more to create a slimmer appearance. Without the help of liposuction, it can be seemingly impossible to achieve the slimming outcomes you want to achieve. There are several types of liposuction offered today with technology advancing frequently. The most common type performed in the U.S. today is called tumescent liposuction with a traditional, power-assisted, or ultrasound-assisted liposuction tool and technique depending on how difficult the fat is to remove. We also offer laser-assisted lipolysis, which is less invasive (as a laser dissolves the fat so that it can be suctioned out with a cannula). You may also be interested in learning more about our nonsurgical options such as Lipo-B Injections for smaller treatment areas. Of course, to get the optimal result and dramatic change in your shape, liposuction is the more successful option.

Manhattan Beauty Project: Liposuction


Fat removal surgery is a good treatment for men and women who are at an ideal weight but have lumpy areas of fat that have been hard to lose with exercise and diet. Individuals contemplating liposuction should have skin that is taut because liposuction is not a treatment for loose or sagging skin. It's also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer for weight loss. Women of childbearing age undergoing liposuction should keep in mind that pregnancy will compromise the area that has had liposuction. At the time of your consult, Dr. Pantazopoulos will convey honest expectations.

Liposuction candidates are evaluated on an individual basis by Dr. Pantazopoulos. However, there are commonalities amongst appropriate candidates for liposuction. In general, good liposuction candidates:

  • Are in good physical and psychological health
  • Are at or slightly above their ideal body-weight
  • Do not smoke
  • Do not have any chronic, uncontrolled medical conditions that could raise the surgical risks or impair healing
  • Have specific and reasonable goals of surgery
  • Understand the risks of surgery


Liposuction reduces or eliminates excess subcutaneous fat (fat that resides under the skin) that is unresponsive to diet and exercise efforts. Liposuction can be used to treat the:

  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Inner knees
  • Calves
  • Ankles
  • Male breast area
