Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to remove excess stubborn fat from the body. Patients looking to contour away fat deposits often try exercise and dieting, and while these may help to some degree, stubborn fat tends to resist these efforts. If you’ve tried everything but still can’t get rid of those fat deposits, liposuction in Southlake is an effective solution.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction, or lipo, is a technique that uses medical suction to permanently remove fat cells from a specific area, making it look leaner.
You can treat one or more parts of your body with this procedure. Generally, people opt for liposuction to remove fat from areas like the neck, abdomen, hips, thighs, back, chest, knees, upper arms, or buttocks.
Liposuction is not considered a weight-loss therapy and is purely used for spot reduction of excess fat. Exercise and dieting can provide an overall reduction in body fat over time, whereas liposuction is instant and is targeted for specific areas.
Before the Surgery
The process of liposuction begins with a discussion between you and Dr. Habash. Dr. Habash may ask you about your expectations, medical history, and any current health complications. After going through all the details, he will create a surgical plan and decide on a date for the procedure.
On the day of surgery, Dr. Habash marks the areas where liposuction will be performed. He may also take photos so you can see before and after images of your surgery.
During Liposuction Surgery
The lipo procedure typically takes 3 to 4 hours. Your heart rate, oxygen level, and blood pressure will be kept under observation during the procedure. In special cases or in cases where more body parts are affected, it may take more time to complete the procedure.
Several techniques are available for liposuction, including tumescent liposuction, super-wet liposuction, and UAL (ultrasound-assisted liposuction). The right technique for you will be chosen depending on your needs and aesthetic goals.
Regardless of the technique chosen, anesthesia will be administered to ensure a comfortable and pain-free procedure. Very small incisions will be made in the treatment regions. A cannula (a thin tube) will then be inserted into an incision. Excess fat will be loosened from the surrounding tissues and then removed through the cannula using suction.
You may be asked to rest for a few hours after completion of the procedure. The staff will monitor your recovery and give a prescription at a stipulated time. You will be discharged after ensuring that all of your vitals are stable and healthy.
After the Surgery
Bruising and swelling will be present in the targeted area after your procedure. You may be asked to wear elastic compression garments during your recovery in order to reduce these issues and ensure that the skin tightens appropriately. Ice packs can also help with post-surgical swelling.
Dr. Habash may prescribe a few painkillers and antibiotics. It may be necessary to take time off from work as well.
