"I got my first hydrofacial. Amazing!!!!! Life is too short to not be good to myself so I intend on making this a regular occurrence! My friend got one too and holy moly, the before and after pictures speak for themselves. Skin care to this degree was new for him but Felicia took her time to make sure he was comfortable throughout the entire process. Already looking forward to my April hydrofacial!"- R.B. / Yelp / Feb 15, 2019
"I was diagnosed with a Basal Cell Carcinoma on my shoulder and found Dr. Parker via his website. He was very thorough in answering all my concerns and questions, making me feel comfortable about the Mohs procedure. The results were better then I could have ever expected. The scar isn't even noticeable and people would never guess I ever had the Mohs procedure done!! Between Dr. Parker, the nurses and the delightful front staff, I felt very welcomed and treated just life family!"- A. / Wellness / Oct 25, 2018
"Dr. Parker is such an amazing doctor and does wonderful work. I had surgery in 2017 on my nose and you can't even see where he did the surgery. I would recommend anybody in the Dallas area to go see him for Mohs surgery."- A.W. / Wellness / Oct 24, 2018
Liposuction Ideal Candidates
Fat removal surgery is a terrific procedure for both women and men who are at an ideal weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that are difficult to rid with even the most healthy lifestyle. Women and men interested in liposuction should have healthy skin because liposuction is not a treatment for loose or sagging skin. It's also important to understand that liposuction is not an answer to losing weight. Females undergoing liposuction should be past pregnancies as this may compromise the outcome. During your consult for surgery, Dr. Parker will set realistic expectations.
Liposuction Surgical Technique
Surgical liposuction is completed in an outpatient setting with the patient under general anesthesia. A very small incision is made through the skin so a cannula can be placed. A cannula is a tool that makes it easier to loosen the fat that is being suctioned out. After the desired amount of fatty tissue has been suctioned out, Dr. Parker will seal or suture the incision. Based on the number of areas receiving treatment, your surgery may take 1 – 3 hours.
What to Expect with Liposuction
You may need to recover at home for 1 – 3 weeks, depending on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat removed. It is normal to see bruising and swelling for 1 – 2 weeks. Most patients will have their stitches taken out 7 – 10 days after treatment. After liposuction, it is important to allow your body time to rest and heal. Once you return to your job after your procedure, you should remember to minimize stress and strenuous activity. To increase your strength and stamina, try light workouts and go for walks as recommended by Dr. Parker. Keep in mind, you may see some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take 6 – 10 months until your new body contour and shape are attained.
