Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes stubborn body fat. It is also known as lipoplasty or lipocontouring. Downsize! Lipo Center caters to all kinds of liposuction needs for Houston patients. .
What Is Liposuction?
Everyone who wants to remove excess fat from the body knows the difficulty of accomplishing this through diet and exercise. There are certain areas in the body where fat tissues are extremely stubborn. Liposuction, a procedure that removes fat tissues from different body parts, offers the perfect solution.
Most liposuction procedures are designed to remove unwanted body fat in specific areas. We perform liposuction using local anesthesia while the patient is awake. This helps to avoid the side effects and risks of general anesthesia.
A suction device attached to a cannula is used to loosen, break up, or liquefy the fat. The fat is then removed using the cannula. The incision is closed using stitches.
We perform a variety of liposuction procedures for our patients.
“360 Lipo,” or “Lipo 360,” is a liposuction procedure with treatment areas encompassing all areas of the midsection. The treatment areas include the upper and lower abdomen, the obliques, and the mid-to-lower back. The recovery period is shorter compared to having individual liposuction procedures for each treatment area.
Arm liposuction is less invasive compared to an arm lift. It is performed on the upper arms, usually along the backside as well as around the outside arm area. If the patient has a high degree of skin elasticity, arm liposuction is more than enough. However, an arm lift may be needed if the patient has loose and saggy skin after liposuction.
Chin liposuction is suitable for patients who have developed a double chin condition due to excess fat around their chin area. The neck area is also part of the treatment area for chin liposuction.
Inner thighs liposuction targets the soft tissue on the inner thighs. It restores the thigh gap, which is most women’s goal for this procedure. It solves the problem of friction and chafing between the thighs. In some cases, the inner knees are already the target areas for this procedure.
Outer thighs liposuction treats the “saddle bags” of the outer thighs. In some cases, outer thighs liposuction is often performed together with inner thighs liposuction.
Chest liposuction is a liposuction procedure that removes fat tissues from the chest area. This procedure is often performed for men who have developed “man boobs” to restore the masculinity of their chest area.
Middle-back liposuction can be performed on both men and women. It is usually done on women and is sometimes called bra fat lipo. It targets mid-back spots with stubborn fat that cannot be removed through diet and exercise.
Flank liposuction targets the flanks or midsection area. The excess fat deposits in this area are also called “love handles.” This area easily develops excess fat that is hard to remove through diet and exercise.
Dr. Hennessy prefers awake liposuction. Patients are awake during their procedure but in no pain. This is accomplished through infusion of a tumescent solution that numbs the region. This tumescent solution is a combination of saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine.
Have you noticed that an area of your back below the neck and between the shoulders has a curved hump-like protrusion? This is called a buffalo hump or a dowager’s hump and is technically known as a dorsocervical fat pad.
Many women are interested in removing stubborn localized fat through liposculpting the Mons Pubis and/or the Labia Majora in Houston. They feel self-conscious about this area, especially while wearing a bathing suit or while working out at their local gym.
Submental liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment that removes stubborn fat deposits from the submental region (the area beneath the chin). With submental liposuction, Houston patients can enjoy a more contoured and sculpted facial profile.
Arm liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove excess fat from the upper arms. People looking for arm liposuction in Houston rely on Downsize! Lipo Center of Houston to provide contouring results that look incredibly natural.
Plus-size liposuction is a procedure we offer for our plus-sized patients. These patients are looking for assistance in reducing excess fat that they could not effectively address through diet and exercise.
Good Candidates for Liposuction
Healthy patients at a relatively stable near-ideal body weight are good candidates for liposuction. Candidates must have realistic expectations and are willing to commit to healthy lifestyle changes to maintain results for a long time.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
The cost of a liposuction procedure will depend on the type of liposuction procedure. The treatment areas will also impact the overall price of the treatment.
