Liposuction is often utilized by our highly experienced board certified plastic surgeons to contour the patient’s body to attain their desired shape / physique that will aid in creating the ideal body that reflects their identity. The goal of our best in class board certified plastic surgeons and caring staff is to reduce / eliminate your gender dysphoria associated with your body’s shape / overall physique.

Liposuction is offered at our premier private surgical suite as an outpatient procedure. The surgical procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes anywhere from 20 minutes to three hours. The timing is completely dependent upon how many areas will be contoured during the procedure. Some patients opt to combine liposuction with fat transfer because this allows the patient to choose a target area on the body with excess fat deposits that our team of board certified plastic surgeons transfer to another area where the patient desires more volume. There are six different liposuction procedures we offer at the Gender Confirmation Center of NYC (Manhattan, NY) and our top notch team of best in class plastic surgeons will walk you through each one to help you determine the best course of treatment that addresses your concerns and actualizes your ideal body the best we can.
**Liposuction is not a replacement for a healthy diet and regular exercise.
The amount of fat that may be removed during a single liposuction session with the plastic surgeon is dependent upon a few key factors:
- Size of the fatty deposits
- Availability / quality of the targeted fat
- Patient’s medical history / current health status
- Your plastic surgeon’s final judgment
Our top rated team of plastic surgery specialists will work with you to determine what procedure best suits your needs and create a highly customizable body contour procedure that best reflects your desired post-surgical result and minimizes gender dysphoria as much as possible.
This NYC plastic surgeon was awesome – patient, smart, friendly, helped me get financing and the staff was fantastic. I had liposuction performed on my tummy – the Manhattan Plastic Surgeon performs his operations in his office … it is a surgical suite. My outcome was fantastic. I am really happy with the results. His pricing was fair, the consultation was free, and he even called me a few times after the surgery to make sure I was ok. Dr. Senderoff is an awesome NYC Plastic Surgeon! ~ Vitals
We offer a plethora of liposuction procedures and our best in class New York board certified plastic surgeons at the Gender Confirmation Center of NYC routinely utilize the following liposuction treatment methods for patients seeking non-surgical / surgical gender affirming treatments:
Traditional Liposuction: Traditional liposuction typically takes between 1-3 hours, depending on how many areas are treated with liposuction during your procedure. Your plastic surgeon makes a small incision in the treatment area, injects a numbing solution into the fat deposits, and uses a cannula (probe) to break up / suction the fat cells in the treatment area. The traditional liposuction procedure is performed at our top notch private surgical suite as an outpatient treatment. Traditional liposuction requires the cannula to pass through more areas of the treatment area and residual trauma in the surrounding areas from the cannula’s movements. The recovery time is longer than other methods.
Super Wet Liposuction: This technique consists of the plastic surgeon inserting pretreatment anesthetic injection usually made up of saline, adrenaline, and lidocaine – which helps maintain a clearer view of the fat cells that will be suctioned. Super wet liposuction is an outpatient procedure performed at our top notch fully accredited private surgical suite located in Manhattan, NYC. The treatment may take anywhere from 45 minutes to 4 hours, depending upon the size and amount of treatment areas.
Tumescent Liposuction: During tumescent liposuction, the best in class New York board certified plastic surgeon inserts a pretreatment anesthetic injection (most commonly adrenaline, local anesthesia) to the treatment area. This method greatly reduces blood loss and increases patient comfort. Pending the plastic surgeon’s judgment, the patient may choose any of the other liposuction methods to undergo after having a tumescent liposuction pretreatment injection in the treatment area(s). This technique is the most popular among liposuction patients, as it yields lower trauma to surrounding areas and patients report shorter recovery times.
Ultrasonic Liposuction: Ultrasonic liposuction consists of the board certified plastic surgeon to target high-energy sound waves towards fat deposits in order to disrupt the fat (which then becomes liquified). Suction assisted liposuction is used to collect the liquid fat and remove it from the treatment area using basic suction. The Gender Confirmation Center of NYC utilizes the most innovative, cutting-edge technology at our best in class Manhattan based plastic surgery specialty practice, which is why we offer VASER® LipoSelection. This method of ultrasonic liposuction effectively targets the treatment area fat cells to maintain healthy blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerves in the surrounding areas.
Power-Assisted Liposuction: Power-assisted liposuction is available at the Gender Confirmation Center of NYC (Manhattan, NY). This technique is routinely performed at our fully accredited private surgical suite and power-assisted liposuction is known to be an effective method for the removal of fat deposits. During power-assisted liposuction your board certified plastic surgeon uses a suction cannula programmed to vibrate and suction at the same time. Low energy vibrations target the unwanted fat deposits and preserve the surrounding / affective blood vessels, skin, and nerves. This procedure is shorter than other liposuction methods and does less damage to the surrounding areas. Patients may opt for power-assisted liposuction because the incisions are smaller and the contouring / fat sculpting is more accurate than other liposuction techniques.
Liposuction is an effective way to permanently remove fat cells in target areas with immediate results. Some of the most commonly target areas for liposuction are:
Liposuction may be used by our team of plastic surgeons to create a more female / male / androgynous physique for patients that wish to align their body’s contour with their identity. This procedure comes in many different forms (including non-surgical techniques) and it is highly customizable to fit the unique needs of your anatomy and desired post-surgical result. Many transgender / non-binary patients feel that body contouring procedures such as liposuction are as, if not more, important than other gender affirming treatments because body contouring allows for patients to socially integrate themselves into society in their actualized ideal body that aligns with their identity. This is an important step for transgender / non-binary individuals and the best in class board certified team of plastic surgeons at the Gender Confirmation Center of NYC (Manhattan, New York) will be there for you every step of the way – from your initial consultation to your post-procedural recovery.
