Welcome to Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery for liposuction in NYC on Park Avenue.

Excess fat can cause concern for men and women. Sometimes fat accumulates on parts of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. No matter how much weight you lose, stubborn areas of unsightly fat may remain that can be addressed by liposuction. 

Targeted weight loss surgery through liposuction in NYC is a fantastic option to permanently reduce fat in targeted areas. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States.


Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani specializes in liposuction and helping patients achieve optimal results. It’s possible to remove fat from the stomach, hips, thighs, and more areas of the body. We can also remove fat from the facial and neck areas with neck liposuction.

A Slimmer, More Confident You

Many people have difficulty targeting certain areas of the body to reduce fat through traditional exercise and a healthy lifestyle.

Recovery Timeline

When you schedule a consultation for liposuction in NYC, you’ll visit our Park Avenue office for a confidential consultation.  During this conversation, Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani and our surgical team will get to know you and develop a personalized treatment plan; his priority is to provide individualized care for every patient.

Be prepared to discuss:

  • Your surgical goals
  • Your medical history 
  • Current medications

It’s possible to combine multiple surgeries based on your overall aesthetic goals. Many patients include liposuction and even facial rejuvenation as part of their mommy makeover in NYC.

After liposuction, some patients may experience loose skin, in which case we may recommend a skin tightening procedure, too.

We highly encourage you to ask questions during your consultation. Our team will walk you through each step of the procedure and recovery process so you can feel comfortable and confident in your decision.

Your surgery will take place at our luxurious in-office facility in Manhattan, and the procedure can take up to 4 hours depending on the surgery areas.

Your surgeon will use very small incisions and insert the cannula into the liposuction area. With this cannula and Microaire PAL (Power Assisted Lipo), they will skillfully remove fat and sculpt the areas with excess fat.

We can combine liposuction in multiple areas based on your individualized treatment plan, adding additional procedures (like fat transfers, tummy tuck, breast surgery) Depending on your body and personal preference, awake liposuction can also be performed. Certain energy devices may be combined with liposuction for added skin tightening to help with the overall shape and long-term contour. This depends on your goals and body type.

Liposuction is typically an outpatient procedure and you can return home the same day after your surgery. You will need someone to drive you home.

After your procedure, you will wear a compression garment.  It’s important to wear this as instructed for proper healing and to help your body contour to its new shape.

Your initial recovery period is 4 to 7 days, and you cannot work out for the 3 weeks following your liposuction surgery. Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani may place drains at the surgical site to prevent fluid from building up. Our team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions for optimal recovery.

Your surgeon, our Patient Care Coordinator, and the rest of our team will be there to guide and support you throughout your post-surgery care. We will schedule follow-up appointments to assess your recovery and results.

The First Few Days: You may experience some minor discomfort, swelling, and light draining from the incision. The pain is easily managed with Tylenol or prescription medications.

Weeks 1 to 2: You will still be wearing your compression garment. Most patients start to feel back to normal during this time. It’s possible to return to work if you don’t have a physically demanding job. You will notice some bruising and you will still be swollen from the surgery. This will gradually improve over the next couple of weeks.

Weeks 3 to 4: After one month you should be almost completely free of any soreness. There may still be some swelling present, but it will continue to go down.

Week 6 and beyond: You should be fully recovered and will be able to stop wearing your compression garment. All activity restrictions are lifted as long as you’re cleared by Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani.

Frequently Asked Questions


Can I combine liposuction with other procedures?

Yes! Patients frequently combine liposuction with other aesthetic procedures. Liposuction is often included as part of a mommy makeover. It can also be combined with fat transfers so that the fat that is removed can be used immediately to be transferred to certain areas to augment and improve shape and contour.

Does liposuction require a hospital stay?

Generally, liposuction doesn’t require a hospital stay. However, if we are combining multiple surgeries, it may be preferred. We’ll discuss this during your consultation.

Does skin tighten after liposuction?

Yes, skin tightens after liposuction, and even more so when we use the BodyTite radiofrequency assisted skin tightening technique.

How long do liposuction results last?

Depending on your health and lifestyle choices, liposuction results can last permanently. The fat cells we remove with liposuction cannot come back, but the remaining fat cells can expand from weight gain.

How much does liposuction cost in NYC?

Liposuction in NYC costs $5,000 – $15,000 depending on the treatment areas.

Which is better, tummy tuck or liposuction?

Whether tummy tuck or liposuction is better depends on your specific anatomy. If you have excess skin and rectus diastasis, a tummy tuck will better address your concerns. If you have good skin quality with minimal excess skin and are troubled by stubborn fat that does not respond to exercise, liposuction is better suited for you. You can find the best procedure for you with a one-on-one consultation.
