Liposuction, Lipoplasty, or Suction Lipectomy is an effective body contouring procedure to removed unwanted fat that has been difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise. Liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic procedures due to its high success rate, high safety, and quick recovery. Unlike many nonsurgical fat reduction procedures, liposuction is definitive meaning the fat is permanently removed.

What can Liposuction do?

Lipo surgery helps patients to achieve a slimmer and sculpted body; however, liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment and will not eliminate cellulite, stretch marks, or necessarily tighten sagging skin. Some skin tightening does occur with liposuction however often other procedures to remove skin can be necessary in cases of severely sagging skin.

Am I a Liposuction candidate?

Individuals who have localized areas of fat that are disproportionate to the rest of their body can often benefit from liposuction. However, there are other important factors to determine if a patient can undergo or not Lipo Surgery.

Ideal candidates will have:

  • Good skin elasticity
  • Be realistic in their expecations
  • Be non-smokers

A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Azouz is needed to determine if this procedure is right for you.

Liposuction consultation

Prepare your questions about the type of liposuction techniques, benefits, risk, recovery, before and after, and cost. On the other hand, the plastic surgeon will gather information from the patient to determine if that person is a good candidate or not for liposuction. Therefore, be prepared to answer questions about your health condition, allergies, current medication, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and drug use. Once, plastic surgeon, Dr. Azouz has a better understanding of your expectations he will create a surgical plan and explain the risks and expected results from the procedure.

Liposuction with Dr. Azouz in Dallas is performed using ultrasonic, power-assisted, and tumescent techniques. Dr. Azouz also incorporates safe and high-definition liposuction.

During your consultation, Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz will discuss your goals and recommend an individualized procedure to achieve your best outcome.

Custom Cannula Traditional Liposuction
Traditional liposuction cannulas have varying characteristics to target and remove fat depending on the location. Dr. Azouz has designed his own cannulas to maximize patient results. This is true in his custom-made gynecomastia cannulas, leg, abdominal, lipedema, chest, back, calf, and neck cannulas. Dr. Azouz educates patients on which types of liposuction he has customized for specific locations and procedures. Dr. Azouz conceals and minimizes scarring so much so that many patients report being unable to detect their scars.
Power-Assisted Liposuction
Power-assisted liposuction is a specialized liposuction procedure performed by Dr. Azouz. Dr. Azouz utilizes a vibrating cannula to break up and remove fatty tissue. Studies have shown that power-assisted liposuction permits increased precision with less bruising and efficient fat removal. Power-assisted liposuction can also remove up to 30 percent more fat than traditional liposuction methods.
Ultrasonic Liposuction
Liposuction with a power source removes fatty tissue and allows liposuction to be more efficient. Some energy sources can contribute to skin tightening.
High Definition Liposuction
High-definition liposuction utilizes the artistic principles of light and shadow to provide a sculpted look. Dr. Azouz removes large quantities of fat in some locations while avoiding certain areas’ “no go” zones. This provides men and women with a shaped and muscular look.
SAFE Liposuction
SAFE liposuction stands for liposuction with Separation, Aspiration, and Fat Equalization and has been extensively studied in Aesthetic and Plastic, and Reconstructive surgery journals. SAFE liposuction breaks up adhesions and scar tissue between the dermis, fascia, and fatty tissue to create a uniform subcutaneous fat layer. SAFE liposuction helps to avoid contour deformity and inadequately treated areas. Dr. Azouz uses SAFE liposuction techniques in patients undergoing their first operation and patients who have had liposuction elsewhere that require a revision liposuction procedure.
Tumescent Liposuction
Tumescent liposuction (sometimes referred to as water liposuction) adds fluid and epinephrine to traditional liposuction techniques, effectively minimizing bleeding while also permitting a less painful procedure. Liposuction can be performed under local anesthetic and sedation rather than general anesthesia with tumescent liposuction techniques. Tumescent liposuction also can help to avoid bruising and soreness.

Preparation before Liposuction surgery

Dr. Azouz will provide indications to follow before surgery, these might include some food and alcohol restrictions.

The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. On the day of the procedure, make sure to go with somebody that can drive you home after surgery. The medical staff will help to prepare for the procedure once the patient arrives at the medical facility.The plastic surgeon will start marking the areas to be treated with liposuction and local anesthesia will be administered to the patient.

Anesthesia used during liposuction

The type of anesthesia used during liposuction in Dallas by Dr. Azouz is local and sedation anesthesia. Dr. Azouz also utilizes anesthesia providers who focus on giving the patient the best and safest surgical experience possible. With the use of local and sedation anesthesia patients tend to have a quicker recovery, less post-operative grogginess, and decreased nausea compared to general anesthesia.

How is Liposuction performed?

Dr. Azouz performs liposuction making small incisions. Then, the cannula is introduced through the incision targeting the fat pockets and the extraction of fat is done by making back and forth motion and with the help of a vacuum system. This process is repeated as necessary until the part of the body treated has been sculpted. Liposuction is generally well-tolerated, and most patients report having little pain after this cosmetic surgery. Patients return home shortly after the procedure has been completed. The recovery period and aftercare instructions will depend on the treatment area’s size and your natural healing process.

Liposuction Recovery

Following your liposuction procedure, special compression garments will need to be worn to diminish swelling. Dr. Azouz does not routinely place drains for Liposuction. Redness, bruising, and swelling are expected, and any discomfort can be controlled with pain medication, but most patients do not report significant pain after liposuction.

Most patients can return to a desk job within a few days after liposuction. Many patients who have liposuction on a Friday will return to a desk job on a Monday. However, recovery time may differ from patient to patient and is dependent on the specific locations and number of areas treated.

How does liposuction compare to nonsurgical techniques?

Liposuction is a definitive treatment to remove fat deposits and lipodystrophy from the body. Unlike non-surgical treatments, liposuction removes fat from the body and places it in a bottle. Liposuction is performed once, whereas nonsurgical procedures involve multiple sessions (as many as 6-8 at times). The results of liposuction are much more definitive than nonsurgical techniques.

Are Liposuction results permanent?

Liposuction removes fat cells during the surgical procedure. Liposuction results will last as long as the patient keeps a healthy lifestyle by doing exercise regularly and having a proper diet that helps to maintain the body weight.

Liposuction cost

The cost of liposuction is dependent on several factors, including the number of areas treated, the amount and quality of fatty tissue to be removed, and the overall health of the patient. Dr. Azouz will determine the cost of liposuction by performing a history and physical examination. Liposuction is not covered by health insurance; however, Dr. Azouz provides financial options for his patients.

Liposuction patient review for Dr. Azouz

“Dr. Azouz did such a top notch job with my liposuction surgery. I could not believe that it was not very painful at all after surgery. I am three months out now and the look is better than I could think they could be. I can not wait for summer when I will be going down to the beach in Play del carmen with my husband and kids. Dr. Azouz is really caring and he was so good to me. Compression was a little tough at first but it is all worth it!!!! I feel like he is the best choice for anyone looking to get plastic surgery work done. Dallas was pretty far for me to travel to get surgery but I am glad I went there and it was totally worth it.”
