Say Goodbye to Bulk
Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure designed to get rid of stubborn deposits of fat that tend to collect in the abdominal region and numerous other areas of the body. Sometimes this type of fat is so persistent that regular diet and exercise cannot provide significant results. At The Godek Center for Personal Enhancement, our board-certified plastic surgeons can help you assess whether traditional liposuction or another form of fat removal would be a good option for helping relieve you of this troublesome problem.
Find Your Slimmest Figure
Liposuction is a straightforward solution for excess fat that doesn’t want to budge from common problem areas like the neck, abdomen, thighs, and elsewhere. In this minimally invasive procedure, your surgeon removes fat using a narrow surgical cannula, which only necessitates a small incision. At our practice in New Jersey Liposuction is frequently performed independently or with other procedures, such as a Tummy Tuck or Mommy Makeover.
Slimming Tailored to You
In addition to eliminating fat accumulations that remain resistant to diet and exercise, with Liposuction New Jersey patients can expect to experience other primary benefits such as:
For optimal benefits, maintaining a healthy lifestyle that consists of eating a nutritious, well-balanced diet and exercising on a regular basis is highly recommended. Doing so can help prolong the results of treatment and keep excess fat from returning to the treated area(s).
Liposuction is effective at reducing fat in a wide variety of locations—virtually anywhere persistent fat deposits are found. Some of the most common treatment areas include:

Getting Ready for Your Transformation
Performed as an outpatient treatment, liposuction usually takes about one hour to complete, but this may vary depending on the quantity of fat removed and the number of areas being addressed. For each and every patient, our doctors aim to seamlessly blend the treatment region with the contours of surrounding areas for an incredibly natural-looking result. They are careful to ensure that the appearance of any potential scarring is as minimal and barely noticeable as possible. During the liposuction procedure, your plastic surgeon will make tiny incisions in and/or near the treatment area. A cannula—which is a thin, hollow surgical tube—will then be used to break up the fat cells and remove them from the body until the desired contour is achieved in the targeted region.
After Your Procedure
Following liposuction, there may be some minor bruising, swelling, and/or tenderness in the treated area, but these symptoms should subside with time. While pain is uncommon, any potential discomfort can generally be controlled easily with medication. After approximately one week, most individuals feel well enough to resume office jobs, school, or other daily routines. However, strenuous activities like heavy lifting and vigorous exercise will need to be avoided for a minimum of a few weeks. Once fully healed, it is important to eat nutritiously, exercise regularly, and maintain an overall healthy lifestyle to help prolong the results of treatment.
Our surgeons take great care to limit possible side effects when performing liposuction. During the consultation process, they can comprehensively cover what to expect based on your personalized treatment plan, helping to ensure the recovery process is as smooth and stress-free as possible. Following treatment, your plastic surgeon will provide specific directions for properly caring for incisions as they heal to promote an optimal final scar appearance. This may include regular application of topical skin care products, as well as avoidance of sun overexposure and activities that may place tension on the incision site(s). Exact instructions will depend on each patient’s skin type/quality and unique treatment plan.
Liposuction should never be considered a weight loss procedure despite the fact that it removes fat from the body. Treatment is designed to help individuals at—or close to—their desired weight eliminate localized fat accumulations that do not respond to diet and exercise. Some patients may see a slight drop in weight following their procedure, but liposuction will not significantly reduce weight.
Although scarring is an inevitable aspect of any surgery involving incisions, one of the chief benefits of liposuction is that the resulting scar(s) is usually very inconspicuous. The incision needed to remove fat from targeted areas is typically only a few millimeters in length, often leading to a relatively short scar once healed. Additionally, our surgeons are generally able to make incisions in discreet locations on the body, further reducing the final visibility of scarring.
People rarely accumulate fat in just one area of the body. As a result, many patients opt to have more than one region addressed during their procedure. The exact number of areas that can be treated in a single liposuction session will depend on the size of the desired treatment regions and how much fat will need to be extracted to achieve an optimal outcome. A unique plan will be determined at the time of the consultation.
So long as patients maintain a relatively stable weight following treatment, liposuction results can last a very long time. The fat tissue removed during the liposuction procedure is permanently eliminated; however, fat cells left behind in the region have the ability to grow in size to store extra fat in the event weight is gained post-operatively. To help prevent this, it is important to lead an overall healthy lifestyle after liposuction.
Liposuction prices vary from patient to patient due to the high level of treatment customization. Key factors that can influence overall cost include the number of areas being addressed, the total quantity of fat removed, the specific liposuction technique utilized, the skill/experience of the plastic surgeon, and the area of the country in which the practice is located. At The Godek Center for Personal Enhancement, we never want cost to get in the way of someone looking and feeling their best. To help those who need and/or desire financial assistance, we accept several payment plans offered through ALPHAEON™ CREDIT, CareCredit®, and PatientFi. With numerous minimal- to no-interest options to choose from, patients can find a plastic surgery financing plan that fits comfortably within their budget, making liposuction an affordable reality.
In addition to traditional liposuction New Jersey aesthetic experts at The Godek Center for Personal Enhancement offer another form of surgical fat removal. The HydraSolve™ Lipoplasty System was co-designed and created by Dr. Godek himself. For patients interested in non-surgical fat reduction, we also offer non-invasive CoolSculpting®.
