Liposuction removes stubborn fat from certain parts of the body. If you have fat that does not seem to budge despite sticking to a proper diet and working out, try liposuction in Houston.

What IsLiposuction?

Liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in the target areas of the procedure. It relies on suction to achieve this. Liposuction shapes the targeted areas for a slimmer appearance.

IdealCandidates

The most suitable candidates for liposuction include those who are within 30% of their ideal weight, do not smoke, and have elastic but firm skin. They do not have a medical condition that may negatively affect their healing and have optimistic but realistic expectations of the procedure’s results.

Your LiposuctionConsultation

During the consultation, you will discuss your medical history with Dr. Rodriguez, from your weight, diet, and exercise routines to your medications and previous procedures. You will also undergo a physical examination to check your fat layers, skin elasticity, and other problems that may need additional procedures.

TheProcedure

Liposuction will remove stubborn fat layers using a cannula. Small puncture incisions will be made in discrete body parts, and then the cannula will be inserted into an incision. The cannula then suctions the excess fat out. After the procedure, the small incisions stay open to let excess fluid out, since they can heal on their own.

TheRecovery Process

You will likely be able to go home soon after your liposuction. A compression garment must be worn over the treated areas. These garments may have absorbent pads for a few days until the small puncture incisions stop leaking fluid. You may return to work after a week or two and resume gym visits four to six weeks after liposuction.

You can expect some swelling in the treated areas, but a compression garment and lymphatic massage therapy can help with this. You may see your final results in a few months.

The Cost ofLiposuction

The price of liposuction depends on the surgeon’s fees, operating room costs, anesthesia fees, medical tests, medications, and other relevant expenses. You will learn more about the cost of the procedure during the consultation.

In most cases, you will be under general anesthesia during liposuction, so it will not be at all painful. However, you may feel slight discomfort when you wake up from the procedure.
