Your Options for Liposuction in McKinney, TX with Dr. Setty

Liposuction is one of the most researched plastic surgery procedures on the internet. Yet while Lipo is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, it is also one of the more misunderstood options. Liposuction is a procedure designed to contour areas of localized fat that persist despite weight loss and an exercise regimen. In some cases, it can even be done with a local anesthetic for smaller areas of fatty tissue. While a general anesthetic is required for multiple or larger areas, the incisions are small and most patients are off work for only two to three days. Recovery is often fairly rapid, and you will be able to resume normal activities sooner than with more complex body contouring procedures. There may be minor to moderate pain and swelling for up to four to six weeks and compression garments typically must be worn between two to four weeks.

While fat can be suctioned from almost anywhere on the body, it is important to consider what happens to the skin after the fat is suctioned, as skin elasticity varies on different parts of the body and from person to person. The outer thighs, hips and under the chin typically respond quite well, whereas the inner thighs, the abdomen and the arms may be more prone to sagging skin. This is part of the reason liposuction is commonly done in tandem with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation surgery, or combined procedures such as with a mommy makeover. While not a weight loss tool, in the end, liposuction can offer exceptional and dramatic results if used on the right patient in the right areas, and it definitely can contribute to beautiful results when combined with other procedures.
