Houston TX Liposuction
While liposuction performed to areas of the body is most common, facial liposuction in also a widely popular procedure. Facial liposuction can be appropriate for patients with a double chin or those with sagging skin around the jaw line, areas frequently resistant to healthy weight loss practices. This option is not medically consdidered true facial plastic surgery, and can postpone any neccessity for a face lift for many years.
As a whole, the liposuction procedure can last anywhere from two to four hours, depending on the areas of the body that are being treated. In some cases, several areas of the body can be treated during the same procedure. The introduction of tumescence, a process involving injecting the fat with a solution containing local anesthesia and electrolytes, has made the procedure even safer for patients by minimizing bleeding and discomfort. The recovery time may include one to two weeks of some swelling and/or bruising, and patients can usually return to work within one week.
Liposuction is not and should not be considered a weight loss program or an alternative to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The ideal candidates for liposuction are patients who are already close to their ideal body weight and who struggle with small areas of concentrated fatty tissue. As with any cosmetic surgery, it is best to consult your cosmetic surgeon and doctor when considering unergoing any procedure.
