There is a reason that liposuction has been one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for over a decade: it allows surgeons to sculpt a more svelte, proportional, and beautiful figure in both men and women.
It is effective all over the body: under the chin, chest and breast, waist, and all the way down to the ankles.
Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. If someone eats more calories than they expend after liposuction, over time the body will store those fat cells, albeit in a different location than where the liposuction was done.
Liposuction excels for areas of disproportion. That does not mean that a patient has to be thin; it only means that there needs to be an area that is disproportionate such as a bulge or a shape that does not flow harmoniously with the surrounding areas.
Dr. Teitelbaum can do liposuction on patients awake, with IV sedation, or with general anesthesia. The final choice is based upon the areas being treated, patient preference, and what Dr. Teitelbaum believes will be safest for the patient.
Dr. Teitelbaum has experience with every major type and style of liposuction, including tumescent, syringe, power, standard, and ultrasonic. He has lectured about laser liposuction, including Smartlipo™. The outcome from liposuction is a result of the surgeon’s aesthetic judgment and technical prowess rather than from the device itself. The different liposuction devices are just different tools; Dr. Teitelbaum uses his expertise to deliver to patients the best results possible.
With his longstanding interest in art and sculpture, Dr. Teitelbaum is passionate about the refinements he can make to his patients’ figures.
