About Liposuction

Dallas, TX board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Naveen Setty, offers many advanced techniques to remove your unwanted, undesirable fat. Lipo, or liposuction, is a reshaping procedure that removes pockets of fat from the flanks, tummy, buttocks, thighs, and more to create a slimmer appearance. Without the help of liposuction, it can be seemingly impossible to achieve the slimming outcomes you want to achieve. There are several types of liposuction offered today with technology advancing frequently. The most common type performed in the U.S. today is called tumescent liposuction with a traditional, power-assisted, or ultrasound-assisted liposuction tool and technique depending on how difficult the fat is to remove. We also offer laser-assisted lipolysis with SmartLipo Triplex, which is less invasive (as a laser dissolves the fat so that it can be suctioned out with a cannula). You may also be interested in learning more about our nonsurgical options such as CoolSculpting, SculpSure, and radiofrequency ablation for small treatment areas. Of course, to get the optimal result and dramatic change in your shape, liposuction is the more successful option.

Liposuction at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics can be combined to treat multiple body parts or assist in other types of plastic surgery, such as a mommy makeover or a fat transfer surgery. When he sees you for your consultation in any of our three offices, Dr. Naveen Setty will assess your problem areas and together, you will discuss which method(s) are best during the initial consultation visit.

Ideal Candidates

Fat removal surgery is a good treatment for men and women who are at an ideal weight but have lumpy areas of fat that have been hard to lose with exercise and diet. Individuals contemplating liposuction should have skin that is taut because liposuction is not a treatment for loose or sagging skin. It's also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer for weight loss. Women of childbearing age undergoing liposuction should keep in mind that pregnancy will compromise the area that has had liposuction. At the time of your consult for surgery, Dr. Setty will convey honest expectations.

Surgical Techniques

Surgical liposuction is completed in an outpatient setting with the patient under general anesthesia. A small incision is placed into the skin so that our cannulas (of various sizes) can be inserted to help Dr. Setty reshape and contour the area he is reducing. He will also be injecting tumescent fluid (with numbing medication and epinephrine) to assist in preventing excessive blood loss and bruising. The cannula is a tube that makes it easier to separate the fatty tissue that is being removed. After the fatty deposits have been suctioned out, Dr. Setty will seal the small absorbable sutures. Based on the amount of sections receiving treatment, your procedure may take several hours. In the separate area for recovery, your post-op team will assist you with managing any pain, dress the area with a compression dressing (or garment), and monitor your vitals until you are discharged.

What to Expect

The first thing we want you to try to do is to take a light walk after you come out of recovery from liposuction. This will help your blood circulation and help prevent clots from forming. Also, wearing the compression garments will assist in your recovery as well. Every patient recovers at his or her own pace but resting for several weeks is not unusual for our lipo patients. Your recovery time is based on how you feel, the amount of fat taken, and the number of areas treated. It's also typical to have bruising and swelling for 1– 2 weeks. The most important thing to do following lipo surgery is to give your body time to recover and heal. When you are ready to go back to your job after your surgery, you need to remember to go slow. To increase your strength and stamina, try short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Setty. Bear in mind you may have some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 6 – 10 months until your new body contour and shape looks its best.
