Great doctor, I am super satisfied with my cosmetic surgical results, I would recommend to anyone.

The doctor performed a non invasive manhattan lift on me and i love it. everyone asks me if i went on vacation or if i lost weight! he was very professional and his assistant is the best. i highly recommend dr. dagan to everyone seeking cosmetic help.

Dr Dagan was my third nose job surgeon. Out of all three I was most pleased and satisfied with Dr. Dagan’s patience, knowledge and work. He takes him time to make sure I understood what can be done realistically and what can not. He is far from greedy like some other plastic surgeons. His staff is also very caring and you never have to wait to see him. Dr. Dagan thanks for the nice nose!

I had nasolabial folds and acne scarring. Previous fillers had left my right side less full than my left. I had 4 syringes, more in the right side than left. I am very happy with the results. I noticed immediate improvement, with more over the time. I have not had any adverse reactions. It’s been 2 years and I don’t need a touch up. It hurt more than other fillers but was worth it. I noticed many of the unhappy users had injections around the eyes, which isn’t suggested for Artefill. The skin is too thin. Side effects are possible and likely.

Dr. Dagan is very honest about the services that are needed. He likes to keep you looking natural, but beautiful.

Loved it! Really clear breakdown of expectations and everyone is super friendly.

Liposuction in Manhattan, NYC

No matter how much or how hard you exercise, some areas of the body just don’t respond. That means the fat clings there, taunting you and making you feel self-conscious or even embarrassed about your body. Liposuction from board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Tal Dagan, MD, FACS can help treat those stubborn areas, removing the fat and revealing the sleek, toned muscle underneath.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction offers a number of benefits, most importantly the following:

  • Greater self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Improved body image
  • No more hiding your body under frumpy sweaters or jogging pants

How Is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction uses anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure, so you can go home the same day. Dr. Dagan is a respected liposuction surgeon who has an artist’s eye. During traditional liposuction, known as suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL), Dr. Dagan makes a small, inconspicuous incision in the treatment area and inserts a cannula (a small tube). This tube is moved back and forth under the skin to help break up fat cells and fatty deposits, which are then suctioned out through the tube.

Preparing for Liposuction

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure performed with local or general anesthesia. It usually takes between one and five hours, depending on the amount of fat you need to be removed. Often, liposuction is performed in conjunction with a lift in the affected area, wherein the excess skin (which had been stretched by fatty deposits) is removed and tightened, giving you a more toned appearance.

Liposuction Recovery

As you recover from liposuction, you’ll likely feel swollen and bruised for a few weeks. Dr. Dagan will provide you with compression garments and antibiotics if needed. You may return to work within a few days but should avoid any strenuous exercise or activity for about a month.

Is Liposuction Right for Me?

Dr. Dagan will personally consult with you to determine whether the liposuction surgery is appropriate for your needs and also to ensure you have realistic expectations of what the surgery will accomplish. Liposuction is not suitable for anyone who is significantly overweight. Candidates should be no more than 10 or 15 pounds from their ideal weight.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

Costs for your liposuction treatment will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Dagan accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

As the liposuction process has evolved and becomes ever more popular, so too has the demand for knowledgeable, expert Manhattan liposuction professionals. Dr. Dagan will personally evaluate you as a candidate for liposuction and detail the entire process as well as perform a thorough examination. Above all, he values your trust and confidence and will do everything possible to make your visit as comfortable and convenient as possible.

Six pack Instasculpt

Corrects: poorly defined abs, flanks and oblique muscles
Length of Procedure: 30-50 minutes
Number of Treatments: One
Longevity: Permanent
Recovery Time: 2-5 days

You work out in the gym, you keep a healty diet but no matter how much you seem to do everything right you can’t seem to the “six pack” sculpted look you see in the gym. If this sounds familiar, you may qualify for a one time procedure to enhance your abs and give them the sculpted look you’re looking for. Using our instasculpt technique , we remove the excess fat that is masking the shape of your ab muscles, your waist and your oblique muscles so you can see the tone in the muscles underneath and finally achieve the “six-pack” appearance. Most patients see the newly defined abs within just 48 hours of the procedure.

There are no scars, no general anesthesia and the procedure is performed in the office.

Am I a candidate for Six Pack Instasculpt?

If you are over 18 years of age and have unwanted stubborn areas of excess fat obscuring the shape of your ab muscles you are a perfect candidate for this procedure. What we recommend is to do a ‘pinch test’. If you can pinch the fat in your belly, we can remove it. This is all done without a scalpel or general anesthesia, no stitches!

What is the recovery time from Sixpack instasculpt?

The liposculpting technique used is minimally invasive and therefore makes the recovery more quick. Most patient return to normal activity within 3-5 days although there may be some soreness up to two weeks after the procedure. Some swelling after the procedure may be present which is normal. To minimize the swelling, you will be wearing a compression garment around your waist underneath your clothing for 14 days.

How Long do the results last?

As long as there are no significant shifts in body weight, the fat removal is  permanent and the results long lasting. Extreme weight gain can cause fat to regenerate.

Liposculpting is a term reserved for Dr. Dagan’s minimally invasive liposuction procedure to remove jowls and tighten skin or to chisel a double chin and any excess fat underneath the chin to provide you with the contour you desire. It makes the appearance of the face more attractive by sharpening the jawline, flattening the surface underneath the chin and improves facial proportions.

The chin is quick to heal and you will most likely see the difference within as little as 48 hours.

Chin liposculpting takes only about 20 minutes! This procedure requires no anesthesia, you’ll be awake throughout the short procedure and see your fat plucked away through a small sized hole. Unlike other plastic surgery procedures, we don’t use any stitches or leave behind marked scars. This highly effective procedure permanently removes unwanted fat from underneath the chin while ensuring tightening of the skin, providing remarkable results.

Am I a candidate for Chin liposculpting?

If you have recently lost weight, you may have noticed certain problem areas that are more resistant to the changes in your body fat. The chin, love handles, groin area, breast rolls, back, arms and knees can sometimes retain the fat despite even a strict diet and partial success in losing many pounds of weight. Liposuction is not the panacea for weight loss but it is perfect when it comes to finesse and contouring of the trouble areas you are unable to lose with weight management and diets alone. The area underneath the chin also referred to with the rather unglamorous term turkey neck or double chin is a result of fat accumulation underneath the floor of the mouth. If you pinch the area underneath your chin and feel the soft fat or notice bulging of it in the mirror, you may be a candidate.

How much does the procedure cost?

Prices for liposuction procedures vary depending on the body size, the area treated and the need for other treated areas. Please contact our office to speak with our patient consultants and book a consultation to discuss costs.

What is the recovery time from chin Liposculpting?

Liposculpting is a minimally invasive procedure with very little trauma to the tissues. As a result most patients are back to their normal activities within 48 hours. After the procedure there is a mild swelling, which is normal

How long do the results last?

As long as no significant body weight gains occur, the results are long lasting and permanent. Significant increases in body weight can cause the regrowth of fat cells. Make sure that your body weight is stable before contemplating liposculpting procedures.

How long should I wait before resuming sports after chin liposculpting?

It is highly recommended that you discuss with your surgeon during your post procedure follow-up when you can resume physical exertion and sports activities. Some people heal faster and the return to strenuous activity may be quicker.

How long do I need to wear the chin compression bra?

After surgery, you will have a tan colored compressive bandage that maintains firm pressure against the treated area to ensure it heals with minimal swelling or collection of fluid. You should be wearing the chin strap bra for the 48 hours post procedure and then at night for another two weeks.
