Liposuction in New York City, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and New Jersey

liposuction-staten-island-new-york-dr-vitoloDr. Robert Vitolo performs liposuction for the residents of New York City, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and New Jersey.

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure, and for good reason. Liposuction can help to refine the shape of the body by removing excess fat deposits from the body. Though many individuals opt for liposuction treatment on the abdomen, waist, or hips, the buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, and even the face (such as the chin, cheeks, and neck) can all benefit from liposuction. Dr. Robert Vitolo uses minimally invasive techniques to remove fat from specific problem areas and improve body proportion and appearance. Our patients in the New York City, Staten Island, Brooklyn, and New Jersey areas appreciate Dr. Vitolo’s gentle liposuction technique and talent for enhancing the natural curves of the body.

The Procedure

The procedure is usually done under general anesthesia so there is no pain. Dr. Vitolo is experienced in many liposuction techniques, including tumescent liposuction, the super-wet technique, and external ultrasound-assisted liposuction (EUAL).

In the external ultrasound liposuction technique, the fat is liquefied by ultrasonic wave, before the liposuction is begun, and the fat is removed as a liquid. The ultrasound also aids in the contraction of the skin.

Recovery is quick and the results look natural. To determine which option may be best for you, please contact our New York City offices in Staten Island, Manhattan, and Brooklyn for a liposuction consultation.

Recovery from liposuction is quick and pain free. Patients may be provided with a compression garment to help speed healing and most patients are able to move and walk easily immediate after liposuction. Most patients can return to work and exercise a day or two after liposuction.


Though liposuction is often portrayed as a weight loss solution, in reality this is not the case. While liposuction can eliminate pockets of fat in targeted areas, it is more effective for body contouring than significant weight loss. If you have excess skin in your abdominal region, an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) may be a better option for you.
