Liposuction

Killer curves. No apologies.

Unsatisfied with the results of diet and exercise and ready gain the curves you want? Or, do you just want a jump start on your road to making changes in your life. One of the top cosmetic surgeries in Austin and throughout the United States, liposuction is a great option for sculpting a pleasing body contour and eliminating stubborn excess fat on the thighs, abdomen, waist, arms, legs, and hips, and chin. Even if you’re doing all the right things, your body may store fat in areas that don’t respond to calorie counting or crunches. For patients in Austin who would like to see persistent pockets of fat vanquished, Dr. Bekanich often recommends liposuction.

Austin Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction is preformed either under general anesthesia or with local anesthesia and minor sedation. Your surgery will last between 45 minutes to two hours, depending on your desired outcome. After making a series of small incisions in the treatment area(s), Dr. Bekanich will use state-of-the-art technology to help liquefy the fat.  Next, using a specialized, hollow tube called a cannula the fatty tissue will be dislodged and removed. Dr. Bekanich will then sculpt the remaining fat to create your new beautiful curves. Once the desired results have been achieved, she will close the incisions and apply surgical dressing and a compression garment. With proper aftercare, scarring will be minimal and the stitches used will dissolve and do not require removal. Liposuction is often used to compliment tummy tuck surgery, a facelift, or breast enhancement.

Will I Benefit from Liposuction?

If you are at an ideal body weight and wish to make permanent changes to your shape, liposuction may offer you great results. Having realistic expectations about your results is crucial and liposuction should not be viewed as a replacement for weight loss and a healthy lifestyle.  It however is frequently used by patients to give them a head start on their road to change. Skin and muscle laxity are important considerations for liposuction patients. If you have good muscle tone and firm, elastic skin, liposuction may be a great way to reduce stubborn bulges. If you are struggling with loose or excess skin, Dr. Bekanich may suggest that liposuction be used in combination with other body lift or body contouring methods to achieve your ideal shape.
