For patients with areas of stubborn excess fat, our plastic surgeon in Austin can perform liposuction to remove fat cells and smooth the appearance of almost any area of the body. The abdomen, thighs, upper arms, back, buttocks, ankles, and chin are just some of the areas of the body that can benefit from liposuction.
The Liposuction Procedure
There are different liposuction techniques available, from which our surgeon can choose the one best suited to your needs. After selecting the most effective method of liposuction, our surgeon makes a few small incisions around the area to be sculpted, through which the cannula, or specialized fat-removal tool, is inserted. The cannula is moved back and forth to break down fat and suction it away from the body. After the appropriate amount of fat is eliminated, the surgeon closes the tiny incisions, and the patient is dressed in a specially designed surgical garment to assist in healing.
Results of Liposuction – Smooth, Lean Contours
Fortunately, liposuction performed does not require lengthy incisions or adjustments to the underlying musculature, so patients can expect a relatively swift recovery time and little, if any, scarring. After healing, the skin conforms to the newly contoured shape of the body to reveal a slender, well-proportioned figure.
