This procedure reduces undesirable contour fullness by removing fat through very small incisions.

Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction has consistently been one of the most popular procedures performed. You can see why: small incisions, a short recovery, and an immediate reduction in an unwanted bulge! If the resistance of certain body areas to respond to diet and exercise frustrates you, liposuction may provide a solution. Liposuction can produce a more flattering figure by removing subcutaneous fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Most liposuction patients are of average weight and desire a contour change. Although there are limits to the amount of fat that can be removed, Dr. Kulick can assist you with your decision about potential areas for sculpting, anticipated results and the recovery process. It is important that you establish realistic expectations through your discussion with Dr. Kulick at your pre-operative visit.


A form of liposuction – is a fairly new way to precisely and efficiently remove unwanted fat. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, LipoSelection uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to reshape your body. First, the fat is liquefied and then removed from the body This should provide smoother results and can leave the body looking much more toned. This technology is quite beneficial for removing large volumes of fat or in areas that are especially fibrous or contain scar tissue from previous liposuction. Your ultimate comfort during the procedure and in the recovery process is very important to us.

As you look at the pictures in the photo gallery you can see the impact that this procedure can have. Almost any area can be treated; neck, arms abdomen and legs are the most common sites. The procedure most often performed with LipoSelection by Dr. Kulick is the tummy tuck. In these cases, the extra skin and fat is surgically removed from the waistline and the bulges along the inner and outer thighs are reduced.

After the Ultrasonic Liposuction Procedure

The recovery for a patient varies with the amount of fat removed, the number of sites treated, their pre-surgical health and post-operative compliance. Patients have reported low to minimal pain, swelling and bruising with the LipoSelection technology. Patients wear a compression garment generally from four to six weeks. This garment helps reduce bruising and swelling and speeds recovery. Most patients are back to their daily routine within one to two weeks. Those patients that couldn’t wear a certain size or style of clothing are now thrilled with their more slender appearance allowing them to buy / wear the clothing they’ve always wanted.
