Understanding Liposuction In San Antonio By Constance M. Barone, M.D. on May 02, 2019

What Is Liposuction?

If you are just beginning your search of “liposuction near me”, you may be confused about what liposuction entails. Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure in which a surgeon suctions out deposits of fat from nearly anywhere in the body. To start, your anesthesiologist will give you local, general, or IV anesthesia. Then an incision is made near the fatty area and a cannula is inserted. The fat is then loosened and prepared to be suctioned. There are several types of liposuction including tumescent, laser, and ultrasound. It is up to you and your board-certified plastic surgeon to determine which type will work best for your body. A surgical vacuum or syringe is then used to remove the fat before closing the incision.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Liposuction In San Antonio

Liposuction is designed to address small pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. It provides women and men with a more slim sculpted figure. Oftentimes, factors such as genetics make it feel impossible to lose fat deposits in our arms, abdomens, or hips. If you live a healthy lifestyle but have trouble with certain fat deposits liposuction offers a permanent fat removal solution.


Most plastic surgeons recommend their liposuction patients be within 5-10 pounds of their goal weight and stay committed to a healthy lifestyle before and after surgery. You must be healthy enough for surgery as well. The best way to know if you are a good candidate for liposuction is to make an appointment with Dr. Barone. She will listen to your needs and advise you on the best way to reach your goals.


When Liposuction Near Me Is Not Enough

What are your aesthetic goals? Liposuction is a great option for women and men who want to get rid of small fat deposits, but it may not be enough to help you reach all your aesthetic goals. While it is an efficient way to get rid of fat, it does not remove excess loose skin or stretch marks. It also cannot address cellulite. For these reasons liposuction is often combined with other surgical procedures. Combination surgeries are a popular way to reach your goals safely and efficiently. One of the most popular combination procedures is the “mommy makeover”. This procedure is customizable and based on each patient’s specific needs. It is called a mommy makeover because it addresses areas of the body affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Liposuction is almost always included in a mommy makeover. Other procedures associated with mommy makeovers are breast lift, tummy tuck, and breast augmentation. If you think you are a good candidate for a combination procedure, talk to Dr. Barone about the results you want to see after your cosmetic surgery.


Recovering From Liposuction In San Antonio

Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, you should plan adequate time away from work and social activities to rest. While individual recommendations may vary, generally patients are able to return to work within a week of their procedure. Exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided until you are cleared by Dr. Barone, typically about a month after your procedure. Patients should expect some swelling and bruising, and full results will not be apparent until these go away. For best results, and to avoid complications, make sure you follow all of Dr. Barone’s pre- and post-operative instructions. Taking care of your body is an integral part of healing.
