Perfect your body with Liposuction - Dr. Patrick Obasi
What areas of the body do you treat using liposuction?
It all depends on what their chief complaint is. The first thing you have to do is, listen to the patient and know their chief complaint.
How do you achieve a patient’s expected goals?
After listening to them, you examine them and see. Ideally get an idea of what they are asking for, and what else you can do to help them achieve their goals.
How do you proceed with the treatment?
If you rush in and do a liposuction in isolation it might not achieve the best goal for them or for yourself as a surgeon. So, you have to advise the patients properly, look at their goal and then you see what you can do to help them.

Liposuction Q & A
Liposuction is a safe, effective way to reshape your body and remove unwanted fat. In most procedures, Dr. Obasi makes small incisions and uses the Power X Machine’s tiny cannula tube to suction away fat and sculpt the body. Patients who opt for a liposuction procedure typically want to address areas such as:
- 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 other cosmetic surgeries, such as a face lift, tummy tuck, arm lift, or breast reduction.
Because each body is unique, Dr. Obasi has invested in training and equipment to offer several specialized liposuction options:
This method is appropriate to eliminate a large amount of fat. The procedure typically requires general anesthesia, and you’ll most likely need stitches in the areas that are treated. Patients tend to experience some bruising and swelling, and your full recovery period may last a few months.
In this procedure, Dr. Obasi numbs the treatment areas and makes small incisions. He floods your fatty tissue with an anesthetic solution that breaks up and dilutes fat cells. After this is accomplished, he suctions the fat away through a small tube called a cannula. You may have a faster recovery time if you opt for tumescent liposuction over traditional liposuction.
With this method, Dr. Obasi 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.
Similar to ultrasound-assisted liposuction, this technique uses light energy to heat and dissolve fat. There’s minimal bleeding, bruising, and swelling, and no need for sutures. As an added benefit, it tightens deep layers of skin for smoother contours.
While liposuction isn’t a replacement for weight loss, it can help beautifully shape the body, and the results are usually permanent. Dr. Obasi is happy to discuss which method is right for your body type and your goals. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Obasi online or by phone today.
Liposuction performed by Dr. Patrick Obasi has given this patient a whole new level of confidence
Dasha Nicole: I know a lot of people wanted to know more about my whole liposuction journey here. I did get my lipo done in Dallas. I got it done by a black doctor at that! So that was a great experience to have. It really doesn’t matter what color your doctor is but you know It was just great for me to see – black excellence doing excellence on excellence (laughs) but without further ado, I am going to go ahead and play the vlog, I already prerecorded it and I will be revealing the name of my doctor in between the vlog so make sure you stay tuned. I have an appointment at 11.30 in Plano. Look at these y’all!
Dr. Patrick Obasi: Hello my dear!
Dasha Nicole: Hi! And I am blogging
Dr. Patrick Obasi: Oh you are blogging, oh okay so you are going to make me famous – (laughs)
Staff: can you sign this receipt for me right here. And here is your copy!
Dasha Nicole: Yay!
Staff: Okay honey you are in good hands – I know right.
Dasha Nicole: My friend Deanna was my driver the day of the surgery. She is stopping to get some Starbucks but of course, I can’t eat or drink anything after midnight the previous night before surgery so. So here are these little disposable thongs. I have a special suit I am completely undressed. (Checked my weight before surgery) I just got done taking some medicine took some Xanax, hydro’s – (I hate meds but they made me so relaxed), and another antibiotic.
Alright all, so this is what came out of me he got a lot of fat out of my stomach so those who are saying I didn’t need lipo – here is the proof. This black thing is a binder and I could not take it off for 72 hours, but I did notice that I started to bruise immediately after surgery during this time the pain was moderate. So I felt the pain but it was pain that I could handle.
And this is me being disobedient after 48 hours, I was so curious to see what was going on up under the black binder – so I took it off and low and behold I saw all of the blood coming through the maxi pads and of course I was about to change out the pads because you are supposed to change out the pads i think every 24 to 48 hours because you will be draining a lot so this is what I am doing here.
Right this is the 2nd day. (Started eating clean for faster healing) so we are having salmon tacos with avocado. So I got a massage and then the massage lady told me to put on my 5 highs so yeah!
Hi welcome back to the channel! (Anywhere between 5 – 7 days post-op) this was like the 5th day after my surgery I was already outside y’all. I text my doctor and asked him I could drink, he said I could have a moderate drink but I still played it safe and I just did a water with lemon.
Alright so after my lipo, I tried to hit the ground running so when I went out, I wore this outfit that had my stomach out on the side when I came home, the shirt was imprinted in my stomach like you could see the everything on the shirt that was around my waist was imprinted on my stomach and my stomach was still hard and it still had a lot of fluid in it, so I kind of like, I still went out but I took my time with healing, and it is September, I am like 95% sure these are my final results of my stomach so. It looks pretty good, it looks very natural – he did his thing.
Doctor Obasi did this – so the name of my doctor his name is Patrick Obasi super professional he checked on me after my surgery, him and his staff are so wonderful like I said I didn’t get anything added on to me. I love all the features that I have already I just did like the stomachs. Yeah! Lipo just put me on a whole other level of confidence. I always knew I was cute but I was always a little, when my homegirls come around and they have their flat stomachs in their pieces and crop tops I was like hey man I want to wear crop tops but I can’t – I found out how to do it, and I did it for me so if you are going to get any type of work done, just do it for you, and don’t care what anybody else says. Make sure your body is good, people will love to laugh at a BBL – for a BBL make sure of your body type is fit for it, but if you are just going to get lipo there is nothing, they just suck in fat deposits out of your stomachs. Pain level – I handle the pain. I took care of myself, me and my boyfriend broke up like a month before my surgery and I still didn’t get weak enough to call him and say hey can you come over and help me out, like I was able to take care of myself and shame on him! That is why he got the big belly Dasha – he didn’t get the small belly Dasha. (laughs) there is your vlog!
And I hope it gave what it needs to give and you’ll go see my boy – you’ll go check him out.
