About Liposuction

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery that can be used to accomplish a number of aesthetic goals.  One form of liposuction, called lipocontouring, is performed to enhance the shape and contour by removing targeted pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.  The ideal patient for lipocontouring is close to their ideal body weight but feel burdened by unsightly fat that they are unable to burn off   Lipocontouring is not  considered a weight loss solution but a procedure to enhance your appearance.  Liposuction can also be used to remove larger volumes of fat from continuous areas of the body such as the belly, back and waistline to create a more shapely body contour.  This type of procedure helps patients to wear their clothing and bathing suits with a confidence that they may have never gotten to enjoy before.  

Dr. Everett uses the SAFELipo technique taught to him by the procedure’s innovator, Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr. during time spent with him at his surgical center in Shreveport, Louisiana.  SAFELipo requires the adherence of a very specific set of rules in order to reduce the trauma and downtime of the procedure and enhance the outcome.  This type of liposuction involves making small incisions near the pockets of fat that have been targeted for treatment. Through these incisions, Dr. Everettbreaks up the fat in a specific fashion to prepare it for removal using a thin metal tool called a cannula. When the fat has been prepared, heremoves it through the cannula using surgical suction. Dr. Everettcan choose to remove the entire pocket of fat or specific proportions of it to sculpt an aesthetically favorable contour. The final phase of treatment involves a technique to treat the remaining fat to promote a smooth result.  This treatment can remove pockets of excess fat from most areas of the body, including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  • Hips
  • Flanks (“Love Handles”)
  • Neck and Chin
  • Inner and Outer Thighs
  • Upper Arms

What is Abdominal Etching?

Abdominal etching is an advanced surgical technique that sculpts and defines the abdominal muscles, giving individuals the coveted appearance of a toned and chiseled midsection. (2) This procedure is designed for those who desire enhanced muscle definition but struggle to achieve it through diet and exercise alone. This procedure was defined by Dr. Henry Mentz III and taught to Dr. Everett during his fellowship with Dr. Mentz at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery in Houston, Texas.

During the abdominal etching procedure, Dr. Everett makes tiny strategic incisions in inconspicuous locations to access the targeted areas. Using specialized liposuction techniques, the excess fat is carefully removed, allowing the natural muscular anatomy to become more prominent. He meticulously sculpts the abdominal region, taking into consideration each patient’s unique physique and desired outcome.

Liposuction with Renuvion (J-Plasma) Skin Tightening

Here at The Everett Clinic, we offer Renuvion as a supplemental treatment to liposuction. After fat has been removed, there can be excess skin that no longer has as much underlying volume to stretch tightly around. This can cause sagging and dimpling. Luckily, Renuvion offers a solution.  

This state-of-the-art device tightens the skin around the newfound lack of fat volume. It involves using the device through the incisions that were made during the liposuction procedure. The device applies a mixture of radiofrequency energy and helium plasma to the layers of skin surrounding the treatment area. This energy stimulates the fibroseptal network to contract and pull inwards causing contraction of the skin. Renuvion can help to sculpt and define numerous areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and arms. Treatment can improve upon liposuction results, making the skin form to the newly-contoured body shape and providing an even smoother, more youthful appearance. Some select patients who would have traditionally required tummy tuck for skin removal are enjoying their fantastic results with liposuction and Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment instead!

Who is a Candidate for Renuvion?

Renuvion is ideal for those looking for an effective skin-tightening treatment alongside liposuction. These patients have minimal to moderate excess skin before the liposuction treatment.  Patients with severe excess skin before liposuction would not be good candidates.  The advanced treatment stimulates the network of tissue beneath the skin and stimulates new collagen formation of the skin over time, providing improvements in skin texture, tightness, and elasticity that lasts.

Benefits of Liposuction

There are numerous benefits to receiving liposuction. These include:

  • Removing fat that is otherwise resistant to healthy diet and exercise
  • Enjoying a slimmer and more conventionally attractive appearance
  • Having a more curvaceous silhouette
  • Gaining a more youthful appearance
  • Permanently removing fat cells from the body
  • You will be proud of your body and your self-esteem will grow 

Who is a Candidate for Liposuction?

If you have pockets of fat around your body that you can’t seem to get rid of, liposuction might be right for you. To be considered eligible for this procedure, you should be within 30% of your target body weight, as gaining or losing weight after receiving liposuction can affect the results.

You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you:

  • Have specific areas of localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise
  • Are in good overall health, both physically and mentally, ensuring a safe surgical procedure
  • Have realistic expectations and understand the limitations of liposuction.
  • Are non-smokers or are willing to quit smoking before and after the procedure to maximize results and minimize complications

Can Liposuction Help Me Lose Weight?

Liposuction should be considered as a form of “targeted” weight loss, not “total” weight loss.  Patients should understand that liposuction is not a weight loss solution, nor is it a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. A healthy diet and regular exercise will always be the key to losing weight.

Can Liposuction Get Rid of Male Breasts?

Gynecomastia, also known as male breast enlargement, is a condition characterized by the overgrowth of breast tissue in men. It can occur as a result of hormonal imbalances and can cause significant distress and self-consciousness for those affected. In some cases, liposuction, or liposuction paired with Renuvion can be enough to resolve the problem and restore a flatter, more masculine chest, however, for patients with significant glandular enlargement, surgical excision of the tissue may be required. For a personalized treatment plan, arrange an individual consultation with Dr. Everett.

Personal Consultation

At your consultation, we can answer all the questions you have about liposuction. We will ask you to tell us about your medical history. We need to know about any past conditions, procedures, or medicines that might make the liposuction procedure an unsafe option. Dr. Everett will examine the areas of your body with excess fat that you want removed. Together with a discussion about your beauty goals, we can create a personalized treatment plan. When the details are sorted, we can schedule an appointment for your procedure and let you know what to expect moving forward. 

To schedule your personal consultation in Manhattan or Queens, call (212) 774-7715 or fill out this form.


Dr. Everett will provide personalized instructions to prepare for your liposuction procedure. These instructions will be based on your medical history and the results of the tests we run, so for your safety, you should follow them as closely as you can. They might include starting and stopping particular medications. In general, you should avoid anti-inflammatory medications, herbal supplements, and other substances that thin the blood to reduce bleeding during your surgery. 

If you smoke, you should quit before your treatment and for the duration of your recovery. The negative health effects that come with smoking can cause complications and affect your ability to heal. Be sure to stay hydrated before and after your procedure. You should arrange for a friend or family member to drive you home from our facilities, as well as look after you on the first night of recovery. 

Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction, Marc Everett, New York, New York

Dr. Everett performs liposuction as an outpatient procedure, which means you will be able to go home on the same day as your treatment. On the day of your procedure, we will administer either local or general anesthesia for your comfort. We will have discussed which form of anesthesia is best for you, depending on your health condition and preference. 

When you are prepared, Dr. Everett will make inconspicuous incisions near the pockets of fat that have been targeted for removal. The incisions that surgeons make during liposuction are small and leave scars that are not visually prominent. 

What is SAFELipo?

SAFELipo (Separation, Aspiration, Fat Equilibration) is a less traumatic liposuction technique that ensures smoother contours and improves overall aesthetic outcomes. (3) Taught by Dr. Simeon Wall Jr. – the innovator of the technique, Dr. Everett performs SAFELipo to provide his patients with exceptional results and enhanced safety measures.

Using the SAFELipo technique Dr. Everett will use a cannula to break up the fat and suction it out of your body. We will move you to a recovery room and monitor your vitals as the anesthesia wears off. When you are ready, you can go home. 

If you have elected to undergo Renuvion in addition to your liposuction, Dr. Everett will apply the device to your skin and tissue through the incisions before he sutures them closed. 

About VASER Liposuction

VASER is an innovative and advanced liposuction technique. It is an ultrasound-assisted technology that selectively disrupts and emulsifies fat cells, minimizing trauma to the surrounding area and reducing downtime. One of the significant advantages of VASER is its ability to enhance skin tightening, allowing patients to experience the most precise sculpting and contouring liposuction has to offer.


When your procedure is complete, we will wrap your treatment area for healing. We will give you personalized instructions for recovery. These will include how to take care of your incisions, medications to help with healing, and what to watch out for as your body recovers. 

Recovery from liposuction requires some downtime. You will need to rest as much as possible, and most patients take a week or more off from work. For the first week after your treatment, you may experience noticeable bruising, swelling, and discomfort. We can prescribe medication to help alleviate the discomfort. You should avoid physical activity, particularly strenuous activity like vigorous exercise. After two or three weeks, you will be able to resume most normal activities. 


The general impression of the results of your liposuction treatment will be immediately visible. However, the full results will not be visible until the swelling has gone down and the skin retraction has completed after several weeks or even months. Your pesky fat pockets will be gone and you will finally experience the relief of a slimmer contour. The results of your procedure will be permanent, as fat cells do not grow back. However, this does not mean that the cosmetic benefits are guaranteed to last. The remaining fat cells in your body can still grow and shrink, so maintaining a consistent diet and lifestyle is crucial to upholding your appearance. 

Corresponding & Complementary Procedures 

Here at Marc Everett Plastic Surgery, we offer procedures that can correspond with and complement your liposuction treatment. 

Fat Grafting to the Breast

Breast fat transfer combines the benefits of two techniques to enhance and sculpt the breasts, while also contouring other areas of the body with liposuction. Also known as autologous fat transfer, it involves harvesting excess fat from areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, or flanks. Dr. Everett then processes the harvested fat and prepares it for reintroduction into the breasts. The use of autologous fat increases volume and improves symmetry without the use of a breast implant.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift is a great way to get a better butt with a natural look and feel.  It is a cosmetic surgery that augments the butt using fat taken from other parts of the patient’s body through liposuction. It involves removing fat from areas where it is built up in excess. They clean and prep the fat and then inject it into the buttock region. The addition of this fat makes the butt bigger, rounder, and more beautiful, while also improving the contour of other areas. It is a great alternative to augmentation with implants because fat has a more natural look and feel. 

To find out more about the evolution of the BBL, and to see what the perfect male and female buttocks look like according to science, read Dr. Everett’s Daily Mail article and corresponding blog piece. 

Tummy Tuck 

A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery that can treat sagging skin and excess fat in the abdomen area.  A tummy tuck is required to repair issues with the abdominal muscles such as a rectus diastasis or hernia.   It involves a surgeon making incisions to remove excess skin, fat, and tissue and repairing the abdominal muscles in order to make the abdomen slimmer, tighter, and more contoured. Liposuction is often used as a part of a tummy tuck in order to extend the area of treatment beyond just the abdomen.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost in Manhattan?

The cost of liposuction is determined by several factors, including the complexity of the procedure, number of areas treated and the types of additional procedures performed simultaneously.  At The Everett Clinic, we understand that cost is an important consideration when it comes to investing in your aesthetic goals and we will work with you to design an individualized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.

Where can liposuction be performed?

Liposuction can be performed on many different areas of the body, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, back, and even the neck and chin. Whether you struggle with love handles, saddlebags, or a double chin, liposuction can help you achieve the body contours you desire.

Is liposuction permanent?

Liposuction is technically permanent because fat cells do not grow back once they have been removed. However, this does not mean that your weight cannot fluctuate after the liposuction procedure. This is because the fat cells that remain after liposuction can continue to shrink and grow. Maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle is the only way to maintain a steady weight and make your results last. 

Does liposuction leave scars?

The incisions that surgeons make during liposuction are small, though the scars that they leave will be visible. However, they are negligible and will fade over time. 

Who is a good candidate for abdominal etching?

Ideal candidates for abdominal etching are individuals who are already physically fit and maintain a healthy lifestyle but struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that obscure their abdominal muscles. 

What areas of the body can be treated with Renuvion?

Renuvion, or J-Plasma, can be used in various areas of the body to tighten skin, with or without liposuction, including the face, neck, abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks.
