Liposuction  (LipoSculpture)   

Liposuction is designed to improve the contour of your body by removing pockets of excess fat from specific areas of the body. ("Lipo" comes from the Greek word "lipos," meaning fat).  While Liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss, Dr. Romano utilizes this procedure to create a smoother, trimmer body for those with extra pockets of fat that won't go away with weight loss or exercise. 
Since so many physicians who are outside the true specialty of plastic surgery, there is a great deal  of hype about laser devices, along with confusing marketing and advertising. Dr. Romano is an expert in Liposuction surgery having performed thousands of procedures.  He individually tailors and carefully plans each procedure with drawings, photos, and markings over the course of several visits. Exquisite deployment of the right anesthesia, advanced techniques, and technologies (such as ultrasound) can produce excellent results that last the rest of your life. 

  • Face and Neck                                                                         
  • Chest and Breast.  Liposuction works well for both breast reduction in women and chest reduction in men – (See Gynecomastia)
  • Arms. This can be done in all areas from the wrist up
  • Folds in Front/Rear Armpits (Axillae). These are the annoying pockets of fat that may be just above the breast and bra in women, or in the back of the axilla. Men get these too.
  • Abdomen. This is the entire area from the chest to the pubis.
  • Hips. This is the area all around the waist from the abdomen edges to spine
  • Back. These are the rolls under the bra straps in women. Men get these too.
  • Pubis. This can be reduced.
  • Thighs. Dr Romano divides this into front, back, inner, and outer areas
  • Knees. This includes the inner knees, but also some fat that can be present like a horseshoe shape over the kneecap or below the kneecap.
  • Legs. This is usually for thick ankles but Dr. Romano can treat all the way from the knees down.
  • Feet.   Dr. Romano has treats fatty accumulations on the dorsum of feet
