What if I Don’t Want to Go to the Hospital for My Procedure?
While some patients may be comfortable going to a hospital for their procedure, others are not. At Luxe Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide variety of in-office procedures to ensure that our patients are always comfortable. Keep reading to learn about your out-patient options with Dr. Kutty.

When you choose an in-office plastic surgery treatment, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

Our Most Common In-Office Procedures
While Dr. Kutty continues to innovate new ways to help our patients achieve their ideal image from right here in our Sugar Land office, the following are some of the most popular choices for in-office procedures:
Wide Awake Liposuction
Continuously a popular plastic surgery treatment, liposuction can now be done from our office with the use of local anesthesia over general anesthesia. Wide awake liposuction is considered one of the top procedures for reducing fatty deposits from across different areas of the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, and love handles.
With this technique, Dr. Kutty sedates his patients without the need to completely put them under by applying localized anesthesia to only a specific area of the body. For each appointment, he carefully calculates the amount of anesthetic that is needed and that can be given to reduce risk. Dr. Kutty then works gently to ensure significantly less postoperative pain and bruising.
The most common areas that liposuction proves effective are:
- The arms
- The chest
- The thighs
- The face
- The neck
- The hips
- The waist
Brow Lift & Blepharoplasty
For patients that desire a more alert and relaxed expression, a brow lift can be done in-office by making a small incision near the hairline. Commonly, a brow lift is completed alongside a blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid rejuvenation. This allows Dr. Kutty to lift the brows and the eyes at the same time, giving you a more refreshed appearance.
During a blepharoplasty, Dr. Kutty will use opaque contact lenses which help patients feel as though their eyes are closed. A small incision is then made near the eyelashes, which helps prevent any noticeable scarring.
An umbilicoplasty focuses on the area around the belly button to tighten and reshape your stomach. In the office, Dr. Kutty can again use local anesthesia on patients that do not have a hernia to make an incision within the belly button. Then, excess skin and scar tissue can be safely removed to produce a more natural-looking shape. Additionally, reshaping your belly button can be done in conjunction with a tummy tuck, or on its own.
As we age, our skin tends to change in appearance, causing many patients to desire a procedure that can help improve various areas of their body. Through non-surgical rejuvenation, injectables are used to reverse signs of aging without the need for you to have invasive surgery at the hospital. There are two forms of injectables—Neuromodulators, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, and dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm.
Neuromodulators / Injectables
With this form of in-office rejuvenation, injectables are used to freeze muscle movements in your face that can cause fine lines and wrinkles. We offer treatments, such as the well-known BOTOX® Cosmetic, which are perfect for reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and smile lines. Additionally, DYSPORT® is another neuromodulator treatment we offer and is known to be especially effective for the corners of the eyes as well as vertical lip lines.
In addition to administering injections, Dr. Kutty can always remove injectables that have not been successful in the past.
In contrast, dermal fillers are used to “fill in” fine lines and wrinkles to give your skin a youthful glow rather than affecting the muscle movements of your face. Dr. Kutty offers the following dermal filler options in-office
- Juvéderm®: Used for lip augmentation and wrinkle correction of deep folds and facial lines as well as contouring the cheeks and chin.
- RADIESSE®: Used to add volume, boost collagen production, and smoothen nasolabial folds, smile lines, frown lines, marionette lines, as well as define the jawline, chin, and jowls.
- RESTYLANE®: Used to add volume and to various areas of the face, including eyes, forehead, cheeks, jaw, chin, and lips.
- REVANESSE®: Used to minimize facial lines and wrinkles and restore volume and definition to the cheeks, lips, chin, and jaw.
