Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery offers the most advanced treatments to safely eliminate fat from areas of the body. Liposuction surgery, or lipo, is a body contouring treatment that reduces fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks to trim your appearance.

During your initial visit, Fort Worth, TX board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz will assess areas of your body you wish to address so you can attain your personal goals.

Liposuction Recovery

Patients are typically able to go home the same day. When you return home from your procedure you will be wearing compression garments to help with swelling.

Swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort are common during the first two weeks after surgery. Patients typically take at least a few days off work but some opt to take up to two weeks to allow more time to recover.

It can take about 3-6 months to see the final results, but patients can resume their normal exercise regimen 4 weeks after the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

IS LIPOSUCTION RIGHT FOR ME?

Liposuction is a great treatment for men and women who are at their ideal weight but have troublesome areas of fat that have been hard to lose. If you are contemplating liposuction, you should have skin that is taut because liposuction will not fix stretched-out skin.

It is also important to understand that liposuction is not an answer for losing weight so you should be at your ideal weight or close to it. Women undergoing liposuction should not be planning to have more children, as this may compromise the results. Contact Dr. Hanz today to discuss your qualifications for liposuction.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LIPOSUCTION?

Even consistent diet and exercise may not be enough for small but stubborn areas of fat. If you are unhappy with a particular spot on your body, liposuction may be the answer you need to transform your appearance and feel more confident.

It’s also a great solution for men and women who have lost weight and would like to contour their look even further. Many of our patients choose liposuction because the results are personalized according to their unique anatomy and desired look. Enhance your self-image and improve your overall quality of life with a body that you love today.

HOW DOES LIPOSUCTION WORK?

Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure with you under general anesthesia. A punch-hole incision is placed in your skin and a special tool called a cannula will be inserted to loosen the fatty tissue that is being removed. Depending on the number of areas receiving treatment, your procedure could take 1 – 3 hours.

Once complete, Dr. Hanz will close the incision and you will be taken to the post-op recovery area. In the dedicated recovery area, your post-op team will assist you in managing any pain and teach you how to look after your incisions until you are learned for discharge.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER LIPO?

You may need to stay at home for recovery from your liposuction surgery for 1 – 3 weeks based on the number and size of treated areas. Stitches will be removed 7 – 10 days after surgery. Keep in mind that it is typical to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks.

Even when you return to work, you will still be in recovery so you need to take it easy. To build up your strength, stick to light workouts and go for walks as approved by Dr. Hanz.

Remember, you may see some improvements after six weeks, but it will take 6 – 10 months until your new body contour and shape are attained and your goal visible.

How much does liposuction cost?

The cost of liposuction will vary based on the technique selected and how many areas are being addressed. In your consultation, Dr. Hanz will create a plan to meet your needs and goals. He will consider your budget when creating this plan.

To help make your cosmetic surgery affordable, Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods and will help you find low-interest medical financing.

What about nonsurgical liposuction?

Thanks to modern advancements, there are many non-surgical options to reduce body fat. Although some of these nonsurgical procedures can help some patients reduce small amounts of fat, liposuction produces more consistent and dramatic results than nonsurgical options.

Dr. Hanz can go over the benefits of both methods and help you decide which is best for you.

What about cellulite and loose skin?

Liposuction surgery only addresses excess fat. If you have loose skin, Dr. Hanz may suggest combining liposuction with a surgical body lift. Liposuction is often done along with skin tightening surgery, such as an arm lift, to produce the best results.

To correct cellulite, there are several minimally invasive and nonsurgical treatment options. In your consultation, tell Dr. Hanz about your concerns, like loose skin and cellulite, so your best treatment plan can be created.

Will I have scars?

Since liposuction is an invasive surgery, incisions will be made and sutured. This will leave scars, but Dr. Hanz does his best to minimize their appearance by making small, thin incisions in less visible areas or in the natural folds of your body.

Dr. Hanz or a member of his team will go over how to care for your stitches so they heal properly and fade.

Will my results last?

While liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in your body, you can still lose and gain weight. Dr. Hanz suggests that you be at or close to your healthy weight prior to liposuction. Afterward, it is best to stay within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight.

Liposuction results can also be altered if a woman becomes pregnant after her surgery; however, another surgery, like a mommy makeover, can be performed to refresh the appearance.

What is Lipo AI?

LipoAI's  involves identifying fat without immediate extraction, allowing Dr. Hanz to precisely target and dissolve fat cells while preserving surrounding tissues. This targeted approach not only minimizes bodily trauma and reduces the risk of vascular or nerve damage but also promotes skin tightening for smoother, more natural-looking results. By liquefying fat prior to removal, the procedure ensures a gentler extraction process, contributing to enhanced patient comfort and expedited post-operative recovery.

What is Renuvion®?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if Lipo ai is right for me?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure. Renuvion is an amazing non-surgical solution for reducing wrinkles and rhytides, but it’s not for everybody. This procedure requires recovery time and is not recommended for patients with darker skin tones but is limited to patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I, II, or III. Dr. Kevin Hanz will talk to you about your goals, your lifestyle, and whether Renuvion is the right option for you.

What can Lipo ai Treat?

LipoAI can treat various areas of the body where excess fat accumulates, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, buttocks, and submental region (under the chin). It's effective for both large and small areas, providing precise contouring and skin tightening.

    How does Lipo ai work?

    Lipo AI skin tightening treatment works by using laser energy to target the deeper layers of the skin. The laser heats the collagen fibers in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting tighter, smoother skin over time.

    Why is this treatment good for my skin?

    This treatment is beneficial for the skin because it stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve skin elasticity and firmness. It also promotes cell renewal, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.

    Will I be asleep during the Lipo AI treatment?

    Lipo AI does not require a patient to be asleep or undergo general anesthesia. The procedure may be completed with a patient awake. Patients are given a light sedative to feel more relaxed and insure a pleasant, comfortable experience. Many of our patients prefer to avoid general anesthesia and really appreciate the awake approach. Having said that, we do offer the possibility of full anesthesia for those patients that may prefer to be more asleep during the procedure.

    What should I expect during the recovery time?

    During the recovery period, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. The recovery typically involves significantly less down time than other forms of Liposuction. Symptoms are usually mild and most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. Patients may appreciate initial results in as little as 2-3 days, though maximum benefits may take several weeks to months to become fully apparent as the body heals and remodels.
