About Liposuction

For some, no matter how little they eat or how much they exercise, they are still bothered by pockets of fat that prevent them from being confident about their appearance. Elevate Medical Spa is proud to offer the latest techniques to safely rid fat from certain body parts. Lipo, or liposuction surgery, is a body contouring treatment that reduces pockets of fat from the flanks, tummy, buttocks, and thighs to create a slimmer appearance. This cosmetic procedure at Elevate Medical Spa can be combined to treat multiple body parts. When we see you for your consultation, Dallas, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Thornwell Parker will assess problematic areas so you can attain your cosmetic surgery goals. We want you to feel and look the best you can.

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.
