Get Rid of Fat and Reshape Your Body with Liposuction Procedures in Buffalo & Williamsville, NY

A smooth, well-proportioned body is something we all aim for. However, diet and exercise cannot always achieve the optimal results for people with disproportionate contours or loose, sagging skin. Weight fluctuations, age, and genetic factors can all contribute to an uneven shape.
Body contouring procedures aim to improve and reshape your image for a more fit and youthful-looking appearance.

Body contouring procedures are offered in Dr. Cusenz’s office to help you achieve a smoother, proportionate shape. Below is information about some of our most sought after body contouring procedures:

Thigh Lift

For thigh lifts, Dr. Cusenz removes excess skin and fat from the inner area of the thigh for a more contoured shape of the thigh and lower body. Incisions are made at the groin and may extend to the knee. The procedure takes 2-3 hours with an approximate 3-6 week healing time.

Arm Lift

Known as brachioplasty, an arm lift reshapes the supportive tissue of the upper arm, which may droop downward. The result is a smooth, toned contour. Incisions are made on the inside or back of the arm. Recovery time is approximately 2 weeks.

Body Lift

Or belt lipectomy, a body lift firms and contours several areas of the body that may be sagging or low and flat due to loss of skin elasticity from: weight loss and gain, age, or multiple pregnancies. Dr. Cusenz’s Buffalo body contouring patients can also improve the look of cellulite in target areas. Areas to lift may include: buttocks, groin, inner/outer thigh, and the abdominal and lower back. Incisions may be made on the upper/inner thigh, the waistline, and the waist and lower back. The entire procedure can range between 3 to 7 hours. Recovery times vary with the extent of the procedure.


Buffalo patients seek liposuction to reduce subcutaneous fat deposits, which are resistant to diet and exercise, in order to sculpt smoother body contours. Liposuction in Buffalo can reduce localized fat deposits in the following areas: thighs, hips and butt, abdomen, inner knees, calves and ankles, as well as the chin, cheeks, and neck. Procedures and recovery times are dependent upon the extent of the fat to be removed.

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin from Buffalo tummy tuck patient’s and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall to reshape a protruding or sagging abdomen. Tummy tucks are also helpful in fixing the vertical separation of abdominal muscles, which can occur after pregnancy.

Fat Injections
