Lipo under local anesthesia?

Hello. I had a bbl and Lipo about a year ago. Although I love my results. I would like to do some minor revisions to my mid section. I don't think i need that much fat removal to have the procedure done under general anesthesia. Are there any doctors in NJ/NY that do Lipo under general anesthesia?

Liposuction revision may require finesse and delicate manipulation of the tissue and may be better achieved with appropriate anesthesia. Shortcuts may not be in your best interest depending on the severity of the defect.

There are several doctors who do liposuction under local anesthesia in their office or surgery center. I would suggest finding a board certified plastic surgeon in your area and discussing all your concerns.
