Liposuction resolves problem areas for Plano, Frisco, and Dallas area patients
Liposuction is popular at Noble Cosmetic Surgery – Dr. Patrick Obasi, M.D., in Plano. Most people have stubborn zones of fat that do not respond to healthy eating or exercise. Liposuction removes excess fat between muscles and skin. With specialized training and experience, Dr. Obasi achieves attractive outcomes for female and male patients.
A versatile procedure
Liposuction is a safe, effective way to reshape:
- Abdomen and waistline
- Back and flanks
- Calves and ankles
- Cheeks, chin, and neck
- Hips and buttocks
- Inner knee
- Upper arms
The procedure can be performed alone, or to enhance the results of cosmetic surgeries such as face lift, tummy tuck, arm lift, or breast reduction.
Because every “body” is unique, Dr. Obasi has invested in training and equipment to offer several specialized liposuction options:
- Traditional liposuction typically requires general anesthesia and sutures to close incisions where fat is removed. This method is appropriate to eliminate a large quantity of fat. However, bleeding is common, and the patient can expect an extended recovery period with bruising and swelling.
- For tumescent liposuction, treatment areas are numbed. Through small incisions, fatty tissue is flooded with an anesthetic solution. Fat is broken up and suctioned away through a small tube called a cannula. IV sedation is an option for patients who are nervous about the appointment.
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses ultrasound energy to liquefy fat, making it easier to remove. This technique is ideal for large areas such as the back, sides, and abdomen.
- Laser lipolysis is similar, but uses light energy to heat and dissolve fat. There is minimal bleeding, bruising, and swelling, and no need for sutures. As an added benefit, it tightens deep layers of skin for smoother contours.
