About Liposuction

Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX is proud to offer the latest treatments to safely reduce stubborn fat from the body. Liposuction is a body contouring treatment that gets rid of fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks to produce a more contoured appearance. It is an ideal treatment for men and women who have specific areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. This cosmetic procedure can treat a single area or be blended to address several body parts at one time. During your initial visit, plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwartz will examine areas of concern so you can reach your aesthetic goals. We will strive to help you look and feel your absolute best.

Ideal Candidates

Liposuction is a great procedure for those who are at a healthy weight, but have stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be lost with diet alone. Women and men considering liposuction should have good skin laxity because it does not address loose skin. It is also important to understand that liposuction is not a treatment for losing weight. Women having liposuction should have childbearing behind them as this could compromise the outcome. During your initial consultation, Dr. Schwartz will discuss realistic expectations.

Surgical Technique

Traditional Liposuction:

Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin and a cannula will be placed in the incision. The cannula is a tool that helps loosen the fat as it is being suctioned out. Once the selected amounts of fat have been removed, Dr. Schwartz will close the incision. Depending on the number of areas treated, your surgery could last 1 – 3 hours. In the our recovery area, your post-operation nurse will help manage your pain and care for your incision site until your discharge.

VASERlipo:

As one of the nation’s few plastic surgery experts utilizing the VASER ultrasonic liposuction system, Dr. Schwartz can provide just the right touch for you. Serving as the next generation in body contouring technology, VASERlipo (or LipoSelection) uses ultrasonic energy to precisely break apart and emulsify fat deposits for easy, safe removal. Trained by the inventor of the process, Dr. Alfredo Hoyos in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Dr. Schwartz is the only Dallas plastic surgeon to date trained in VASER Hi Def. With this advanced technique, your muscle definition is uncovered and identified, allowing Dr. Schwartz to safely and accurately strip all the fat that stands in its (and your) way. The result is a more beautifully sculpted appearance — all with significantly less pain and less time off for recovery. Still, no matter how advanced the tools, they require a surgeon with the vision to see your potential and the skill to take you there.

What to Expect

You may be in recovery at home from liposuction for 1 – 3 weeks depending on the number of treatments performed and the size of the treatment area. It is normal to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and you can have the sutures removed on day seven to day ten. What is most important after having liposuction is to allow your body time to recover and rest. Once you return to work after your procedure, you should do your best to take it easy. To build up your strength, stick to light workouts and go for walks as approved by Dr. Schwartz. Keep in mind you may see some changes after six weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is attained.
