Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of North Shore realizes that, despite best efforts at routine exercise and dieting, sometimes there are areas of stubborn fat that just won’t go away. Liposuction is an effective procedure to improve body shape by removing unwanted fat from the chin, neck, arms, thighs, “love handles” (flanks), abdomen, and hips. Recovery time is minimal with most patients returning to work in about 4 days (depending on job duties). Exercise may be resumed in approximately 4 weeks after the procedure.

Dr. Anoush Hadaegh is a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in body contouring for more than 15 years. Dr. Hadaegh has an eye for detail and is always focused on your unique needs, concerns, safety, and satisfaction.

Some people choose to have other procedures in combination with liposuction. Breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and fat grafting, are all procedures that, when combined with liposuction, create a more comprehensive makeover. Combination procedures can be performed safely and take full advantage of your recovery period.

At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of North Shore, your safety and satisfaction are always our focus.
