Summer is the time of year when most of us go the extra mile to rid ourselves of those extra pounds. With a surgical procedure called LipoSelection, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Kulick can suction out unwanted fat pockets that build up in regions of the body using ultrasound technology.

LipoSelection is a straightforward surgical procedure that generally takes about an hour to complete. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, LipoSelection assists in the fat-extraction process by liquefying the fat before suctioning it out. This technique also helps to speed up recovery.

The surgery can performed under general or local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort throughout the procedure. Afterwards, patients typically report minimal bruising and soreness compared to traditional fat-removal surgeries.
