Sometimes diet and exercise aren’t enough to get rid of unwanted fat in problem areas. Although it is not a weight loss procedure, liposuction is ideal for reshaping the body by efficiently removing stubborn areas of fat. You can achieve a more sculpted and contoured figure with precise and skilled liposuction in Abilene, TX.
Liposuction can be performed under local or general anesthesia. A tiny incision is made in the treatment area to allow a thin, hollow tube, called a cannula, to suction out the fat.
Liposuction can help:
- Contour the abdomen
- Redefine the jowls, chin and neck area, and cheeks
- Treat enlarged male breasts
- Reduce “love handles”
- Remove excess fat on the hips, thighs, and buttocks
For enhanced results, liposuction is commonly paired with other procedures, including non-invasive skin tightening, breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, or tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).
Before & Afters
In Abilene, TX
After utilizing local or general anesthesia, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Bridge will make small incisions around the desired treatment area. He will then use state-of-the-art liposuction technology to remove the fat for beautiful results. Liposuction is usually an outpatient procedure, so you can return home the same day.
We recommend that liposuction patients take at least three to five days before returning to their normal daily routine. Liposuction patients will wear a compression garment for up to four weeks after treatment. We also recommend avoiding strenuous physical activity for a minimum of six weeks following treatment. The recovery period will be discussed in more detail during your consultation, and may vary from person to person.
Results from liposuction treatments are long lasting, and upholding a healthy diet and exercise routine can help maintain results. Weight gain following the procedure will cause fat to be stored elsewhere on the body.
