Liposuction is one of our most popular cosmetic procedures. As a technique that is used to sculpt the body by suctioning unwanted or excess fat from target areas, it can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures. It can supplement a facelift to eliminate a double chin, or on any part of the body to reduce fat content.
Liposuction can offer patients an overall improvement to their appearance. It can be especially beneficial for those who struggle to get rid of stubborn fat. Our detail oriented and artistic surgeons aesthetically contour our patients’ bodies, giving them the overall appearance they desire.
As a procedure offering immediate results and a short recovery time, liposuction is consistently monitored to ensure each patient receives a safe volume. This minimizes complication and risk. Furthermore, with My Houston Surgeons, liposuction is performed at AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities)-accredited facility, ensuring an excellent environment and a comfortable procedure for patients.
Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on the patient. During the procedure, our talented surgeons make small incisions in the target area. Using a small tube called a cannula, our surgeons use suction to aspirate excess fat and safely remove it from the body.
Most people use the procedure to treat the following areas:
• Flanks (love handles)
• Inner and outer thighs

Before & After
Recovery & Results
Results from the procedure are both progressive and immediate. Most patients see results right after surgery, some may have to wait for swelling to recede in order to see the maximum effects of the procedure. Liposuction offers a long lasting solution, so patients can enjoy their results for years to come. However, gaining significant amounts of weight can hinder the results.
Often, liposuction recovery takes only a couple of days. Afterwards, many patients can return to their daily activities without issue.
Quality Patient Care
Our surgeons along with the supporting staff at the practice provides full support and care for patients right from their initial consultation stage through recovery.
