“Dr. Mahmood performed a liposuction procedure on my outer thighs and I am extremely happy with the results. She is thorough, professional, compassionate, intelligent and talented. I was nervous about getting the liposuction surgery but she explained the entire procedure pre-op and post-op and she made me feel very comfortable. She even reached out to me after the surgery to follow-up and to make sure I was recovering well. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. She is amazing. My liposuction results are simply amazing. I will be going to her for a labiaplasty next month, I’m so excited.” ~ Healthgrades
The top plastic surgeon in NYC meticulously removes as much fat as possible to ensure the areas are even and symmetrical. The small incisions are well-hidden on your body to avoid unsightly scarring. Liposuction plastic surgery can be performed on many areas of the body including the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, back, bra roll, axilla, upper arms, chin, neck, inner knee, and chest. After your liposuction plastic surgery procedure with Dr. Umbareen Mahmood in her state-of-the-art Upper East Side plastic surgery practice, your skin should retract and mold to the newly improved contour. Dr. Mahmood will give you a compression garment that is essential to reduce swelling and to help the skin retract and contour to the body.
Dr. Mahmood uses cutting edge liposuction techniques to provide patients with the best possible outcome. Liposuction plastic surgery results are noticeable immediately following liposuction and are long lasting!
Results will continue to be evident once the swelling and fluid retention decrease during the first few months after surgery, it may take some time for the swelling to resolve fully. Wearing a compression garment is a valuable component in facilitating the resolution of swelling and helping your body reabsorb fluid.
Liposuction can be performed with local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia.
