What is Liposuction?

Even though you diet and exercise, you may find yourself with pockets of fat that are keeping you from being confident in yourself. Kevin R. 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. This treatment can be blended to treat several body parts, or just one. During your initial visit, Dallas, 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.

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 nonsurgical 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.
