Microsuction is a term Dr. Imber developed to describe a form of liposuction using tiny specialized instruments to remove excess fat in facial areas. It is a very effective, minimally invasive technique that can improve areas like corners of the mouth, the jawline, hips, abdomen and double chin.
Dr. Imber is an internationally renowned plastic surgeon and has performed over 25,000 surgical procedures. He performs a full range of cosmetic surgery procedures in his New York City practice, popularized the S-Lift, and developed the Limited Incision Facelift Technique. He has dedicated his career to helping his patients look as good as they feel, and always strives for the most natural results.
Microsuction alone is among the most popular options in fighting the early signs of aging in New York. It is a procedure that Dr. Imber championed for many years to define the jawline, correct the double chin, and remove other small fat pockets. During this minimally invasive procedure, fine, sterile cannulas are used for the removal of fat at the corners of the mouth, the jawline, hips, abdomen, and double chin. Microsuction irritates the undersurface of the skin and seems to stimulate it to tighten and look better. The sum of all this is that if the fatty accumulations along the jaw and elsewhere are dealt with early by microsuction, not only are they eliminated, but the skin over them tightens and adds to the result.
Words From Dr Imber!
“Microsuction is a procedure that I have championed for many years to define the jawline, correct double chin and remove other small fat pockets on the face. The incisions are invisible behind the earlobes or are a tiny quarter inch incision under the chin. The downtime is negligible and complications are exceedingly rare. It is the best procedure for facial sculpting.“

What Are The Benefits Of Microsuction?
Microsuction removes small fatty pockets in the face and neck, tightening the skin in the area and improving someone’s appearance. As a side benefit, microsuction irritates the undersurface of the skin and seems to stimulate it to tighten and look better. An area where this does wonders is the double chin.
Microsuction of the jawline and the pouches alongside the mouth should be considered whenever a patient is undergoing eyelid or other facial surgery. It is a disservice not to think of it, for so much can be gained so easily.
What Type Of Anesthesia Will I Receive? Will There Be Pain?
Dr. Imber’s board-certified anesthesiologist will call you the night before surgery to review all guidelines necessary for the morning of your surgery. Prior to this, Dr. Imber’s nurses will advise on medical clearance and discuss anything else you need to know before your surgery. Most patients receive local anesthesia with sedation and Dr. Imber’s anesthesiologist is on-site the day of your surgery.
How Long Will Recovery Take?
The downtime is negligible and complications are exceedingly rare. It is the best procedure for facial sculpting.
Are There Any Non-Invasive Alternatives?
Yes, there are non-invasive options, but none of the results are as rapid and predictable as microsuction.
Do I Need Any Special Garment Or Bindings?
No. We will provide you with everything you will need pre- and post-surgery.
Why Do I Need A Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?
A board-certified plastic surgeon holds the highest levels of education and training needed to deliver the best results. This qualification is not easy to achieve, so by using a board-certified plastic surgeon, you also know they meet the standards of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
