The abdominal region is an area prone to an accumulation of excess fat deposits. “Muffin top,” “love handles,” “beer belly,” and “gut,” are all too familiar terms for many people. Usually the solution to this is one of the best tummy liposuction NYC has to offer - from Scarpidis Aesthetics.
Thousands of men in the U.S. suffer with gynecomastia, an embarrassing condition commonly known as “man boobs,” or enlarged male breasts.
At Scarpidis Aesthetics, we perform arguably the greatest abdomen liposuction NYC has to remove fat accumulations in the abdominal area that can be difficult to reduce with diet and exercise alone. Our skilled plastic surgeons also perform chest liposuction in New York to treat gynecomastia caused by excess fatty tissue in the chest region.
Exercise and diet can play a role in reducing abdominal fat; however, the best fitness efforts may not be enough to achieve a slim waist, slender flanks, and a flat belly. Many women and men are turning to abdomen liposuction in NYC as a solution. Liposuction is becoming an increasingly popular treatment, with 235,000 procedures performed in the U.S. in a recent year, as reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Medical technology has advanced significantly in the field of liposuction in recent years. With several different cutting-edge liposuction techniques available, patients do not have to settle for a “cookie cutter” approach. Our skilled plastic surgeons have the experience, techniques, and proficiency to custom-tailor an abdominal liposuction treatment specifically for you.
Benefits of Abdominal Liposuction
It is easy for both men and women to accumulate excess fat in the waistline, flanks, and upper and lower abdomen – but it is not that easy to lose it. Many patients who are able to achieve and maintain a normal weight and fitness level still have stubborn belly fat or unsightly bulges at the waistline.
New York tummy liposuction can produce immediate improvement in the midsection and help turn an “apple” shape into a more aesthetically pleasing silhouette. It can remove pockets of flab, recontour the middle section, and improve overall body shape. It is also regularly done as part of tummy tuck procedures.
Tumescent liposuction is an advanced technique for removing abdominal fat. This procedure may be performed under local anesthesia, which allows for a faster, easier recovery. It also provides long-lasting anesthetic benefits and reduces post-surgical swelling and bruising.
Abdominal Liposuction Procedure
At Scarpidis Aesthetics, we routinely achieve fabulous body-sculpting results with tumescent abdominal liposuction procedures. This safe, comfortable technique may be performed with local anesthesia for a faster, easier recovery.
Our surgeon will first mark the treatment areas, then make tiny incisions in strategic locations through which a thin tube called a cannula may be inserted. Saline solution containing lidocaine (a local anesthetic) and epinephrine (synthetic adrenalin) is infused into the treatment area under the skin.
Fluid infused into the fatty tissues causes it to become swollen, which makes it easier to remove excess fat cells and contour the area. This special fluid also restricts the capillaries to significantly reduce swelling and bleeding and provides long-lasting anesthetic for more comfortable treatment and recovery.
After the procedure, the tiny incisions are left open to allow the fluid to drain over the next few days and significantly reduce swelling and bruising. The patient wears a compression garment under which absorbent pads are placed over each incision.

Gynecomastia is a common occurrence during puberty and often resolves on its own. When gynecomastia is caused by excess fat deposits in men who have reached full adulthood, chest liposuction in New York may be recommended to restore a trimmer, more masculine appearance to the chest area.
Causes of Gynecomastia
Enlarged breasts in men (gynecomastia) are often caused by changes in levels of testosterone and estrogen in the body. This often occurs in newborn babies and in 70% of boys during puberty. It can also occur when testosterone levels drop in middle-aged and older men.
Certain drugs and medications can also contribute to gynecomastia, including:
Chest Liposuction Procedure
When gynecomastia involves excess fatty tissue, diet and exercise will not resolve the problem. Our skilled plastic surgeon can perform a male breast reduction procedure using a combination of liposuction and excision in most cases. This procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia.
The surgeon uses state-of-the-art liposuction techniques to significantly reduce the size of the breasts and contour the chest area. Fibrous breast tissue and excess skin may be removed through small incisions strategically placed to minimize visible scarring.
