What is Liposuction?

Even when you watch what you eat and properly exercise, you can still be bothered by stubborn pockets of fat that keep you from feeling completely confident in yourself. Beyond Beautiful is proud to offer liposuction. Liposuction surgery is a body reshaping procedure that reduces pockets of fat from the abdomen, hips, back, thighs, and extremities to produce a slimmer appearance. This fat removal surgery can be blended to treat several body parts. When we see you for your consultation, Plano, TX Dr. Ho will assess problematic areas so you can reach your aesthetic goals. We will strive to help you feel and look amazing.

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction

Liposuction is a great procedure for men and women who are at a healthy weight but have pesky areas of fat that are difficult to rid with exercise and diet. Individuals contemplating liposuction should have good skin laxity because liposuction is not a treatment for loose or sagging skin. It is also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer to losing weight. Women having liposuction should be past pregnancies as this could compromise the results. During your consult for surgery, we will discuss the treatment itself, as well as set realistic expectations for your results.

How is Liposuction Performed?

This treatment is completed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin where a cannula will be placed. Tumescent fluid is infiltrated into the area from which the fat will be suctioned.  Then a cannula is inserted to remove the fat.  A cannula is a special tool that makes it easier to work loose the fat as it is being removed.  Depending on the number of areas treated, your surgery may take several hours. In the separate recovery area, your post-op team will help manage your pain and look after your treated areas until you are discharged.

What Results Can I expect from Liposuction

You may need to stay at home for recovery from liposuction surgery for several weeks based on the number of treatments performed and the size of the treatment area. It's typical to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and overall swelling can last up to 6 months of more after surgery.  What is most important following any surgery is to give your body time to rest and heal, but still be ambulatory. When you are ready to return to your job after your surgery, you should remember to go slow. To build up your strength and stamina, stick to short walks and light workouts as approved by our staff. Keep in mind, you may notice some changes soon after your surgery, but it will take 6 – 12 months until your new body shape and contour are attained.

Liposuction FAQ

How much does liposuction cost?
The cost for liposuction varies based on the technique selected and the number of areas being addressed. In your consultation, Dr. Ho will develop a unique liposuction surgical plan to meet your needs and goals. He will also consider your budget. Once your plan is ready, estimated costs can be discussed. To help make your surgery easy to afford, Beyond Beautiful takes many payment options, and we can help you find low-interest medical financing.

What about cellulite and loose skin?
Surgical liposuction only addresses excess fat. For loose skin, Dr. Ho may recommend combining liposuction with a surgical body lift. Liposuction is often performed along with skin tightening surgery, such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thighplasty, to produce the best results. For cellulite, there are several nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatment options, including QWO®, VelaShape®, ZWave, and BellaPlasma. In your consultation, tell Dr. Ho about all your concerns like cellulite and loose skin — so your best treatment plan is created.

Will I have scars?
Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, incisions will need to be made and stitched. These will create scars; however, Dr. Ho does his best to reduce their appearance. This starts with making small incisions in the natural folds of your body or less visible areas. After your surgery, Dr. Ho or a member of his team will explain how to care for your stitches — so they heal flat and fade.

Will my results last?
Before liposuction, it's important to be committed to maintaining your results. Although liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in your body, you can still gain and lose weight. Dr. Ho suggests that you be at or close to a healthy weight before having liposuction. Afterward, it's best to remain within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight. Pregnancy after liposuction will also alter your results; however, a second surgery like a mommy makeover may be done to refresh your appearance.

Look Fit and Toned

Liposuction at Beyond Beautiful offers both women and men the chance to have bothersome fat diminished almost immediately. Without the help of liposuction, it can be seemingly daunting to get the slimming results you want with other means. We offer various options for liposuction treatment, depending on your individual desired outcome. We welcome you to get in touch with our office in Plano, TX, and schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Ho.
