There are several types of body-enhancement procedures for both men and women. They can involve liposuction, traditional surgery, and several non-invasive approaches. One common misconception is that every surgeon performs liposuction in the same way; however, this is far from the truth, as the size of the cannula (the instrument that removes the fat) plays a key role in achieving superior results. (The smaller the cannula, the better the results.) Dr. Barry Weintraub, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City, has contoured the physiques of countless patients. A perfectionist by nature, he enjoys helping patients to achieve their desired figures with gentle and effective surgery, precisely targeting their problem areas. For female patients who wish to restore their pre-pregnancy figure, he can also combine breast surgery with liposuction and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).
