Sugar Land Liposuction Procedures
Comprehensive Fat Removal Solutions
As we age, our metabolism naturally slows down and we begin to store more fat in our body. This unwanted fat can be embarrassing as it accumulates in noticeable areas. In many cases, these stubborn fatty deposits don’t respond to diet and exercise, leaving you to wonder if there is anything to be done to get rid of the fat. Liposuction may be the answer!
Liposuction works best for patients who are close to their ideal weight and because it is not intended as a solution for weight loss. At Luxe Plastic Surgery, we offer liposuction in Sugar Land to eliminate areas of fat and give you the toned figure you’ve always wanted.
How lipo is done
How is the lipo process done? Liposuction is performed through extremely small punctures in which a narrow "cannula" tube is inserted into the incisions to suction away fat. This allows for precise contouring of the desired areas you wish to treat. At Luxe Plastic Surgery, we also offer the possibility of lipo while you’re fully awake and comfortable, using only local anesthesia. With this technique, there’s minimal downtime and most patients can return to work the next day.
Types of Liposuction
Our office also offers a variety of surgical techniques for liposuction in Sugar Land, including:
- Tumescent liposuction: Tumescent liposuction involves injecting a solution that contains a local anesthetic. This process numbs the area, making contouring and shaping more accurate. The solution loosens and softens the fat, aiding in its removal. The local anesthetic provides pain control after surgery and limits bruising.
- Power-assisted liposuction: All liposuction uses negative pressure to remove fat. Using power-assisted liposuction, however, allows the removal of fat with far less trauma and more efficient contouring. A specialized device causes the liposuction cannula to gently vibrate back and forth. This loosens the fat and removes it more efficiently and with much less trauma. This means better contouring, comfort, and recovery.
- Ultrasound assisted liposuction: Ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses ultrasonic waves transmitted through the skin to aid in softening the fat to make removal easier. This can produce a somewhat greater tightening of the skin and is especially useful in areas where the fat is fibrous, such as the chest in males.
Liposuction Recovery Time
The most important part of the recovery process is the strict use of the post-procedure compression garment, as instructed. The compression garment must be worn 24 hours a day for up to 2-4 weeks, then 12 hours a day for the next 3-4 weeks. This will reduce swelling and ensure proper healing.
