Wide Awake Liposuction in Sugar Land
Transformative Results with Less Anesthesia
Liposuction remains one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S. When performed properly, it’s extremely safe and results in dramatic transformations.
One of the main concerns that keeps people from exploring liposuction is the need for general anesthesia. Being completely asleep during surgery for some people can be more frightening than having a procedure while awake.
Perhaps the only thing deterring you from exploring liposuction is that you don’t want to be put to under general anesthesia… What if you could get that result with a short, simple procedure where you would get the same result without being asleep?
Local Anesthesia vs. General Anesthesia
Of course, having liposuction while awake means that some anesthesia does have to be given. With local anesthesia, Dr. Kutty at Luxe Plastic Surgery is able to sedate patients without completely putting them to sleep by applying it to only a specific area of the body. He carefully calculates the amount of anesthetic that can be given to minimize risk and works slowly and gently enough to avoid causing pain for patients, which leads to significantly less postoperative pain and bruising.
Dr. Kutty believes that, when appropriate, avoiding general anesthesia can provide several benefits, including:
- General anesthesia leaves people feeling ill, often for days
- Having surgery under general anesthesia can cost over twice as much as it would with local anesthesia
- Local anesthesia minimizes the number of systemic drugs that must be administered
- Local anesthesia can be given safely in the right situation and with careful attention to dosing
- You’re back to your normal routine within one to two days
Additionally, with local anesthesia, most patients are able to return to non-strenuous work after a few days. Depending on the number of areas treated and the volume of fat removed, most people can expect to return to strenuous activities within 4-6 weeks. A full recovery from swelling and bruising typically takes up to six months or more.
Same Results, Less Anxiety
At Luxe Plastic Surgery, we provide a relaxing, non-intimidating environment that will reduce your anxieties about liposuction. Dr. Kutty evaluates the patient’s aesthetic concern and decides whether the desired result can be obtained without requiring general anesthesia. Dr. Kutty will only advise having wide-awake liposuction if it can be done absolutely safely and if he is confident he can obtain the same result as with general anesthesia.
Consider the advantages of having liposuction with local anesthesia:
- Predictable results

- Much simpler process; no hassle of being in a hospital
