Liposuction, or body contouring surgery, is a procedure during in which the surgeon sculpts the body, removing excess fat cells from problem areas. Women commonly choose to have liposuction performed below the chin, over the hips, waist, and thighs, as well as around the breasts and abdomen. Most men who decide to have liposuction have fat deposits reduced around the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), and under the chin. Liposuction is also an option for men who wish to diminish the appearance of gynecomastia, or “male breasts.”
During the initial consultation for liposuction at the Houston-based Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Eisemann will advise each patient of the available options for liposuction procedures and will discuss the appropriate types of anesthesia. Local anesthesia is commonly used for patients who require the removal of only a small area of fat deposition. For increased comfort, local anesthesia can be paired with light intravenous sedation. For patients undergoing a more extensive liposuction surgery, general anesthesia is preferable.
Dr. Eisemann performs liposuction is his state-of-the-art, fully accredited plastic surgery center in Houston, or in the hospital. During liposuction surgery, Dr. Eisemann will remove excess fat cells and sculpt the body’s new shape. He will first make a small incision next to the targeted area, into which he will insert a thin hollow tube that is attached to a powerful suction. Dr. Eisemann will then gently remove the unwanted fat cells using a well-planned approach that is designed to keep incisions minimal. Liposuction is not intended as a means to lose weight, but rather to lose inches about the arms, thighs, waist, chest and abdomen.
Liposuction surgery is never intended to replace a healthy lifestyle, but rather as a supplement to diet and exercise. It is equally important to understand that the final result of liposuction surgery is heavily determined by the overall condition of the patient’s skin. After liposuction, the patient’s skin must shrink down to reveal the newly sculpted body. If the skin does not shrink, other options may be considered to minimize the excess skin, such as a tummy tuck or central body lift. These options should be discussed with Dr. Eisemann in the consultation prior to liposuction surgery.
