    Achieve Your Dream Body with Expert Liposuction in Houston

    Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for removing unwanted pockets of fat and sculpting beautiful body contours. This minimally invasive body contouring treatment provides dramatic improvements that are unattainable with diet and exercise alone.

    During your liposuction consultation in Houston, Dr. Paul Vitenas will evaluate your areas of concern and develop a customized treatment plan targeting the precise fat deposits that you want to eliminate. With his surgical skills and advanced liposuction techniques, liposuction can effectively and safely remove unwanted fat cells.

    The benefits of liposuction include:
    • Permanently removes stubborn excess skin unresponsive to diet and exercise
    • Reduces fat deposits in targeted areas to sculpt an attractive, slimmer figure
    • Reshapes your physique and enhances your natural contours
    • Provides dramatic improvements to your self-image and self-confidence
    Liposuction is a valuable tool for refining body contours and addressing localized fat deposits, but it is not a weight loss solution. It is best suited for individuals seeking targeted fat reduction and enhanced body proportions. If you are healthy and at a stable healthy weight but remain dissatisfied with one or more body areas, liposuction patients can help you finally achieve your dream body.

    Effective Fat Removal with Liposuction

    Liposuction surgery is a body contouring procedure that directly removes stubborn fat cells and sculpts specific areas of your body. During this surgical procedure, your Houston plastic surgeon will make small incisions near the targeted fatty deposits and insert a thin tube called a cannula. The cannula is connected to a vacuum device that suctions out the fat. Common treatment areas for liposuction surgery include:
    • Abdomen and waist
    • Hips, thighs, knees
    • Back and bra rolls
    • Arms
    • Neck and chin
    • Breasts

    At Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery in Houston, various liposuction techniques are offered to cater to individual needs and preferences. Among these options are:

    1. Tumescent method: This method involves injecting a specialized solution into the targeted area before the fat removal process. The solution helps minimize bleeding and discomfort, leading to a smoother and more comfortable procedure.
    2. Power-assisted liposuction: In this method, a powered cannula (a thin tube) is utilized, which vibrates or rotates to aid in the removal of fat. This mechanical assistance allows for more effective fat extraction, particularly in fibrous or densely packed areas.

    Patients can discuss their aesthetic goals and concerns with Dr. Vitenas to determine the most suitable approach for their desired body contouring results.

    Ideal Liposuction Candidates

    Ideal candidates for liposuction in Houston are individuals who are close to their ideal body weight and live a healthy lifestyle but have localized fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. Good candidates have good skin elasticity and are seeking small refinements to curves or reduction of fat bulges.

    During your consultation, your Houston plastic surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate based on the following:

    • Your overall health and medical history

    • The location and amount of fat you want to be removed

    • Your skin elasticity and tone

    • Your realistic expectations for results

    If you are significantly overweight, your surgeon may recommend weight loss before liposuction or an alternative body contouring treatment.

    Dr. Vitenas' Expert Liposuction Technique in Houston

    During your liposuction procedure, Dr. Vitenas will utilize his surgical skills and artistic eye to sculpt your body into a more attractive, contoured shape. He customizes each treatment plan using advanced techniques to safely and effectively remove unwanted fat.

    Dr. Vitenas commonly uses tumescent liposuction for precise results with minimal discomfort. This technique involves injecting a solution before fat removal to swell the tissue and constrict blood vessels. The solution contains saline, lidocaine for numbing, and epinephrine to reduce bleeding.

    After injecting the tumescent solution, Dr. Vitenas will insert a small suction tube called a cannula through tiny incisions near the treatment area. He will skillfully guide the cannula through the fat deposits, suctioning out the unwanted fat cells. The solution enables large amounts of fat to be removed while minimizing bleeding, bruising, and swelling.

    At our state-of-the-art Houston Surgery Center, Dr. Vitenas can perform this outpatient procedure under general anesthesia for your comfort and safety. He has over 30 years of liposuction experience in Houston, providing beautiful, natural-looking improvements in body contour.

    Transforming Specific Body Areas with Liposuction

    Liposuction can effectively reshape and contour many areas of your body that have stubborn localized fat. Dr. Vitenas will tailor your treatment plan to meet your cosmetic goals for a harmonious result.

    Slimming the Midsection with Abdominal Liposuction

    One of the most popular uses of liposuction is sculpting a flatter, more toned abdominal area. Even with diet and exercise, some individuals have persistent belly fat or love handles. Abdominal liposuction can provide a slimmer waistline and smoother contours.

    Trimming the Arms with Brachioplasty

    The upper arms are a troublesome area, especially for women. Arm liposuction removes excess fat deposits to provide more attractive, proportional arms with better definition. Your arms will take on a firmer, more youthful appearance.

    Contouring the Thighs and Hips

    Localized fat in the outer thighs that creates a “saddlebag” look can be effectively reduced with liposuction. Refining the hips and thighs provides more balanced lower body curves. Clothing fits better, and the results boost confidence.

    Rejuvenating the Neck and Chin Area

    The neck and chin are common areas of fat accumulation that can make you appear older. Liposuction techniques can eliminate the “double chin” appearance for a crisper, more youthful jawline and neck contour.

    Enhancing the Buttocks

    In some cases, liposuction can be used to carefully reshape the buttocks, but this must be done with precision to avoid contour irregularities. Removing the excess outer thigh or flank fat can also highlight the buttocks’ curves.

    Create a Leaner Back

    Back liposuction can target various regions, including the upper back, lower back, and the area around the bra line.

    Houston Liposuction FAQ

    Liposuction is designed to remove stubborn fat deposits from specific areas of the body where regular diet and exercise have not been effective. A board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Vitenas in Houston, will insert a small tube called a cannula through tiny incisions. The cannula is attached to a vacuum device that suctions the deep pockets of fat from beneath the skin, improving the appearance of cellulite in some cases. Liposuction sculpts and reshapes the treatment areas for a more attractive silhouette.
    Some patients may experience soreness or a burning sensation after liposuction. Dr. Vitenas will prescribe any necessary pain medications for a comfortable, peaceful recovery. Additionally, a special garment may be recommended to aid in the recovery process.
    The best candidates for liposuction are healthy individuals who are close to their ideal weight but have localized areas of fat that diet and exercise have not improved. Good candidates have good skin elasticity and firmness and want small refinements to their body contours. Those with good abdominal muscles typically see the best results.

    Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery uses several liposuction techniques:

    • Tumescent liposuction injects fluid to numb the area and constricts blood vessels before fat removal.
    • Power-assisted liposuction uses a powered cannula to remove fat more easily.

    Dr. Vitenas will recommend the best technique for your treatment goals.

    The small liposuction incisions are strategically placed in inconspicuous locations, such as within natural skin folds and creases, ensuring the resulting scars are barely visible.
    Liposuction can take 1 to 4 hours to complete. The duration depends on the number of areas treated and their size.

    The abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, knees, hips, arms, neck, and chin are common treatment areas for liposuction. Your surgeon will customize the exact treatment areas to meet your cosmetic goals.

    Recovery time varies by individual and the number of areas treated. Most patients take 5-10 days off work and need 6 weeks before resuming exercise. The final results take approximately 3 months to see.
    Your results can be lifelong when maintained with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Wearing compression garments as directed can also help maintain results during the recovery period.

    Liposuction is very safe when performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon. Possible side effects include swelling, bruising, numbness, and discomfort. Rare risks include infection, scarring, asymmetry, and blood clots. Be aware of these risks since they could be signs of a botched liposuction.

    This is considered to be a safe procedure, but there is a small chance of side effects or complications that can lead to a bad liposuction. These can include bleeding, infection, scarring, seroma, blood clots, and fat embolism.

    Dr. Vitenas recommends waiting around 6 weeks before resuming regular exercise activities. This can vary from patient to patient.

    The starting cost for liposuction is around $4,500, but this can vary depending on the method used and the particular area targeted for treatment. This initial cost includes the surgical fees, expenses for the operating room, fees for the anesthesiologist, and all necessary post-operative care. The precise cost for your liposuction will be established during your consultation.
