Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures available, and can remove stubborn fat pockets that are typically resistant to diet and exercise from most areas of the body. Dr. Luis A. Zapiach and Dr. John T. Cozzone can help you attain your aesthetic enhancement goals with liposuction and restore a slim, contoured profile with natural-looking results.

Liposuction is designed to improve body contour by eliminating stubborn, isolated fat pockets that can be extremely difficult to get rid of, regardless of exercise and diet. The liposuction procedure can be performed on a number of areas on the body, including:
- Love handles (flanks)
Our New Jersey plastic surgeons perform the latest liposuction procedures using the most state-of-the-art technology. VASER liposuction is an innovative technique utilizing sound waves to liquefy fat cells during the liposuction process. Our plastic surgeons will insert a thin metal tube (cannula) into the areas targeted for fat removal. The excess fat cells are then melted by sound waves and then extracted. This makes it possible to leave blood vessels, nerves, and surrounding tissues unharmed during the procedure. VASER liposuction also typically results in less bruising, swelling, and post-operative discomfort when compared with other, more traditional liposuction techniques.
Smartlipo™, another advanced liposuction technique here at our Paramus, New Jersey practice, uses laser energy to get rid of stubborn excess fat in virtually any body region. What sets Smartlipo™ apart is that it is very useful for treating localized pockets of fat that can be more difficult to treat with other liposuction techniques. Using a handheld laser, Dr. Cozzone or Dr. Zapiach will liquefy fat cells in the targeted area. Depending on the amount of fat being removed, the excess can either be suctioned out or it may be possible for it to leave the body on its own through natural processes over the next few days. Smartlipo™ also helps stimulate the growth of new collagen in the treated area, helping the skin to tighten and appear more contoured.
