Liposuction is a popular procedure for individuals wanting to lose excess fat and sculpt their bodies. You must be at least 18 years old to elect for a plastic surgery procedure such as liposuction, however, this treatment may still be an option for younger patients if deemed medically necessary. Board certified plastics surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) provide liposuction to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding locations.
Liposuction can remove stubborn fat from virtually anywhere on the body, including the face and neck, the abdomen, back, waist, hips and flanks, arms and legs, and the buttocks. It is important to note that this procedure only removes fat, and any excess skin left over will remain untouched. During liposuction, the patient is placed under general anesthesia. A mixture of anesthesia and saline solution is injected into the treatment areas and then suctioned out with the fat through a cannula.
To undergo liposuction, you must be at least 18 years old, or it must be deemed medically necessary for you to undergo the procedure. During your consultation, your surgeon will assess your physical and mental maturity to be a suitable candidate for liposuction. You must be in good health and not smoke, or able to quit smoking before surgery. You will also need to be able to take time off of work or school for your recovery period, and able to follow instructions given to you by your surgeon.
Patients undergoing liposuction should also be aware that this procedure only removes excess fat from the targeted treatment areas, and is not intended as a weight loss procedure. During your consultation, you should discuss your goals with your surgeon to ensure that liposuction is the best procedure option for you. Board certified plastics surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) provide liposuction to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding locations.
