We are pleased to offer liposuction at our Houston location located in University Place at the intersection of Bissonnet Street and Shephard Drive. Liposuction (also known as lipoplasty or fat removal surgery) is a surgical body contouring treatment that safely and permanently eliminates unwanted body fat in a single treatment. Our body contouring experts use liposuction to transform bulging body areas into attractive contours.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgery with the ability to target pockets of fat from numerous areas of the body including the stomach, thighs, buttocks, arms, chin, and neck. The procedure can be used to remove stubborn body fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
Liposuction procedures are performed under local (rather than general) anesthesia. The procedure begins with an application of a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. Next, the provider makes a series of small incisions in targeted areas and inserts a tiny cannula under the skin. The cannula is connected to a high-powered vacuum to suction out the unwanted fat. The procedure concludes with incisions being closed up after fat is removed and the desired contouring has been achieved.

What To Expect After Liposuction?
Patients may experience mild to moderate pain for several days following their procedure. Any discomfort during recovery can be treated with prescription pain medication. Most patients are cleared to return to school, work, and light daily activities within a week of their procedure. Patients can usually begin undertaking moderate forms of exercise at the 3-week mark. Within 5-6 weeks, lipo patients are clear to perform vigorous physical activity and are able to see the final end result of their procedure. Follow up appointments during your recovery are important as your physician will provide you with specific recommendations.
