LipoAI represents the latest advancement in minimally invasive body contouring procedures.
If you are looking to permanently remove stubborn body fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, then LipoAI is the procedure you need. Led by our partnership with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rothaus of Rothaus Plastic Surgery, we are proud to be the first center to offer LipoAI in New York City.
LipoAI is a laser lipolysis device that offers multiple body contouring solutions within one procedure. Approved by the FDA, it is safe and effective at eliminating unwanted fat, contouring the body, and tightening the skin. It has completely changed the way liposuction is performed and delivers controlled laser energy for smoother results. LipoAI can also adapt to the surgeon’s movements in real-time for a faster, more effective surgery. It works by melting the fat in a desired area prior to suction removal. This helps to shorten downtime as well as decrease bruising and pain after the procedure.
LipoAI is our preferred treatment modality for liposuction and demonstrates key improvements in the overall patient experience. Even better, we can perform this surgery without the need for sedation, meaning patients have no post-anesthesia recovery and can return to work or their normal daily activities immediately afterward. We can also customize each LipoAI procedure to best fit your body goals and create treatment plans combined with non-invasive body contouring devices for maximum results.
- Waist / love handles
- Bra fat
- Submental fat, aka “double chin”
- Lower face / jowls
Pricing for LipoAI depends on how many areas are treated. The price of each procedure is completely customizable and suited to your individual needs. Some examples of the more common ranges are:
- Submental / double chin: $3,500-5,500
- Abdomen: $6,500 – $9,500
- Back: $4,500- $9,500
LipoAI is a laser liposuction device that offers a great solution for treating many body areas that require fat removal and/or skin tightening. It uses a 1444nm wavelength to precisely target unwanted deposits of fat within the body. This energy is effective at melting fat cells for safer and easier removal during liposuction, helping to decrease the amount of downtime a patient may have. In addition to its effect on fat, LipoAI also stimulates collagen production for skin tightening which results in a smoother, more contoured figure.
There are other laser liposuction devices on the market, but what makes LipoAI different is its unique intelligence to adjust settings automatically throughout the procedure with the surgeon’s movements. It does so by adjusting energy through a predictive algorithm using thousands of data points. LipoAI can therefore predict a surgeon’s movements which helps to deliver the correct amount of energy to the treatment area. This precision allows for more accurate treatments overall and is ideal for smaller and difficult-to-treat areas such as the neck, bra line and submental area. This also makes LipoAI a faster treatment option, enhancing the patient experience and decreasing the amount of operating time.
The minimally-invasive LipoAI procedure begins with a thorough assessment of the treatment areas by our board certified plastic surgeon. We start by administering Pronox, which is a nitrous oxide and oxygen combination that you inhale to provide pain relief and ease any anxiety. A small puncture hole is made in each treatment area and a tumescent solution is infused underneath the skin. This includes a blend of local anesthetic, vasoconstrictor and saline to properly numb the area and minimize any bleeding. This ensures the patient does not feel any pain throughout the procedure. We then insert a small laser fiber through the same hole and begin the LipoAI treatment. The laser emits energy at a controlled rate which heats up and liquefies the fat. The fat is then removed via liposuction, either traditional or power-assisted, depending on the treatment area. The treated area is carefully sculpted during liposuction to achieve the look you most desire. The procedure time depends on how many areas are treated. For a small area, such as under the chin, it takes approximately 30 minutes. For a large area like the abdomen, it can take up to 2 hours.
Once surgery is complete, the patient wears a compression garment for a minimum of 2 and up to 6 weeks (except for the neck) to help with swelling and the healing process. Laser liposuction is considered a minimally invasive procedure with little if any downtime. Patients can expect to have swelling, bruising and some mild pain after the surgery, which will all subside within a few days to weeks. You may resume light activities within 24-48 hours, including walking and light aerobics. Most patients return to work the next day, which is one of the many benefits of having LipoAI without sedation. Skin tightening from LipoAI can be seen starting around 3-6 months after the procedure, as the swelling decreases and collagen is produced.

How Does LipoAI Differ From Traditional Liposuction?
LipoAI uses laser energy to liquify fat which is later suctioned in the surgical process. It performs with a higher degree of precision than traditional liposuction alone and uses advanced intelligent technology to accurately deliver energy to the treatment areas. Since it melts the fat first, this results in less trauma to the surrounding tissue and ultimately little to no downtime for the patient. Most patients see reduced swelling, bruising and inflammation following a LipoAI procedure as compared to traditional liposuction. LipoAI also induces collagen formation, which results in skin tightening. Traditional liposuction uses repeated motion to remove unwanted pockets of fat. These movements can cause bleeding which may lead to increased swelling and discomfort to the patient after the surgery. When these two procedures are combined, we can maximize your results, shorten procedure time and minimize recovery.
How Should I Prepare for My LipoAI Surgery?
We kindly ask that you avoid medications that may cause more bleeding. These include aspirin, Advil, Aleve, motrin, vitamin E and fish oil. If you have any questions about the vitamins or supplements you are taking please consult with your provider.
What Do I Need to Know After My LipoAI Surgery?
We send each patient home with 2 compression garments to wear 24/7 for 2 to 3 weeks, which helps with swelling. Many patients will continue to wear a lighter compression garment such as a Spanx for 12 hours a day for up to 6 weeks after the treatment. It is normal to have swelling for up to 4-12 weeks after the procedure, though most will go down within the first week or so. Bruising is also common and can last up to 2 weeks, depending on the person and location. Patients can have mild pain and sensitivity which usually goes away over 24-72 hours.
How Long Do the Results Last from LipoAI?
With appropriate diet and exercise, results from LipoAI can last many years. Fat removal via liposuction is permanently gone. If someone gains weight, the fat cells they currently have will increase in size but should not multiply.
