FACE AND NECK
Localized fat that affects the face and/or neck can be especially frustrating as it is almost impossible to treat through exercise and diet alone (most exercises designed to help are ineffective and can even lead to wrinkle formation over time). Chubby cheeks, jowls, flabby necks and/or double chins can be treated with facial and neck liposuction. Advances in liposuction technology make removing fat from delicate areas of the face and neck safer than ever before, allowing for effective reduction or complete elimination of this aesthetically displeasing concern. You’ll find that your face looks more toned and balanced. Fat combined with loose skin can be treated with a procedure performed in conjunction with liposuction.
Many people are embarrassed by the appearance of excess on their upper arms. Upper arm fat, a condition sometimes referred to as “bat wings”, can make wearing certain clothing (like tank tops or short sleeve dresses/shirts) difficult, since they create an aesthetically displeasing “wiggling” effect which can lead to a general decrease in self-confidence. Excess upper arm fat and tissue is often the result of genetics or obesity. Advanced age and/or weight gain can cause the problem to worsen with time, resulting in increasingly large fat pads. The problem is accentuated by the presence of loose skin.
We treat “bat wings” by performing liposuction on the upper arm through an incision created in the armpit area, and / or near the elbow. While arm liposuction may be sufficient, if excess skin is an issue, it can be reduced or removed through an arm lift.
FEMALE BREAST REDUCTION
Macromastia/breast hypertrophy most often develops as the result of excessive fat tissue growth, but may also be caused by overactive glands (or a combination of both factors). The condition can cause one or both breasts to overdevelop and is sometimes accompanied by nipples that are located below the inframammary crease, a condition called ptosis.
Plastic Surgeons classify macromastia as mild (less than 300 grams of excess tissue), moderate (300-800 grams) or severe (more than 800 grams). Women without ptosis seeking minor to moderate breast reduction may be effectively treated through liposuction alone. If ptosis correction is necessary to achieve a desirable result, Dr. Edelstein may recommend a breast lift.
MALE BREAST REDUCTION AND GYNECOMASTIA TREATMENT
Gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts) is a relatively common problem that causes many men to experience unnecessary embarrassment. Liposuction treatment is able to remove localized chest fat and is a safe, effective procedure for men with excessive fatty tissue. In cases where gynecomastia is caused by localized fat (and not excess breast tissue), we can help achieve a flatter and more masculine look through one of the safest and most effective methods of fat removal, Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL). Fat in the male breasts is often more fibrous than that which is located in other areas, and the unique technology of UAL is well-suited for its removal. Treatment for enlarged breasts in men are left with a smoother and better sculpted chest.
