Come to our Dallas, TX office to get stubborn fat removed
Despite working out religiously and eating healthy (most of the time!), you may still have some stubborn areas of fat deposit that just don’t seem to want to go away. If so, then you may be a good candidate to undergo liposuction.
What is Liposuction?
Also known as suction lipectomy, liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Liposuction helps remove targeted fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise. This helps improve your overall shape and body contour. It is especially useful for the following areas:
- Hips and Buttocks
How is liposuction performed?
Dr. Khan will make a series of small incisions at or near the treatment area. The treatment area is then infused with a sterile solution to help minimize discomfort and bleeding. A thin, hollow tube called a cannula is gently moved back-and-forth to loosen the fat. Finally, a special device suctions out the loosened fat. The small incisions are closed with external sutures and a compression garment is placed over the treatment area to help limit swelling.
What to expect after surgery?
Liposuction at our Dallas, Texas facility is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you will go home the same day as your surgery. You will have surgical tape covering your incision sites and you will need to wear your compression garment post-operatively. You will be given oral pain medication to help with any soreness that you may feel and you will be able to shower the next day. Bruising, fluid retention, and swelling are common after this surgery and will subside over a couple of weeks. Final results may be obscured until all of the swelling has resolved.
