What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a safe, minimally invasive aesthetic procedure that can permanently remove fat cells from numerous body areas. This treatment is often an excellent option for people who have been unable to “spot reduce” through dieting and exercise. Liposuction is also known as body contouring, lipoplasty, or “lipo”.

How does liposuction work?

Liposuction works by first breaking up fats and then using a suction device to remove them from the body.

The Ultimate Solution to Stored Fat

What can Liposuction do?

Benefits and advantages of liposuction

Liposuction is a notably safe, versatile and minimally-invasive treatment that requires few and very small incisions. Results are both impressive and permanent. Lipo can be combined with other procedures and carries a very high rate of patient satisfaction.

What liposuction isn’t

Liposuction should never be considered a weight-loss treatment. Nor will it treat stretch marks or cellulite.

Liposuction Preparation and Procedure

After thoroughly reviewing your medical history, your doctor may order some lab tests before your procedure. For a period before and after your liposuction, as determined by your doctor, you will be directed to suspend the use of any medication or supplement that can cause excessive bleeding.

Board-certified and a member in good standing of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Garza is highly trained and very experienced in liposuction San Antonio patients have loved. Beyond that, he brings a deep level of professional and personal commitment to every patient and procedure.

Your Liposuction Procedure

Your liposuction will be performed either in an outpatient facility that allows you to go home the same day or in a hospital, which may require an overnight stay. Your doctor will determine which setting is best for you. Your surgeon will also select one of several available liposuction techniques depending on your treatment locations and goals. In the most common liposuction procedure, your surgeon will make very small incisions into your skin and insert a thin tube called a cannula. The cannula is then connected to a vacuum device that removes fat and fluid from your body.

You’ll have some bruising, swelling, and soreness for several weeks. You may also need to wear compression garments at all times except for showering for up to three weeks. Patients are encouraged to start moving the day after treatment and can typically return to work within a week.

Maintaining your Liposuction Results

Your results may be “hidden” for a few weeks while your post-procedural swelling subsides. But after that, you will see a sleeker, less bulky, and more contoured you! Most liposuction patients achieve 90 percent of their desired outcomes within three months after surgery. Because your body cannot replace eliminated fat cells, you can expect a permanent and significant reduction in fat. It is important to note that future weight changes will continue to cause the remaining fat cells to fluctuate in size, so it is best to maintain a stable weight after your San Antonio liposuction procedure.
