In Buffalo procedures such as Liposuction have been performed by Dr. Samuel Shatkin Jr. since 1989. Dr. Shatkin has refined the technique to be considered Liposculpture. Liposuction or Liposculpture is an operation where localized areas of fat can be removed from areas that a patient desires improved contour. It is not uncommon for patients who are overweight to inquire with Dr. Shatkin during the consultation of the possibility of liposuction. In most cases Dr. Shatkin and his staff will work with the individual to help them lose weight if necessary to allow them to be an ideal candidate for liposuction.  Liposuction is frequently used to contour the tummy, the love handles for men, or saddlebags for women. It can also be used for other areas of the body including the face, neck, arms and legs.
