Liposuction - San Antonio, Texas
Many people struggle with excess body fat, located in stubborn bulges and deposits throughout the body. This excess fat can be extremely difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. Even the fittest individuals can succumb to localized pockets of fat that no amount of exercise or dieting can rid them of. Fortunately, there is a solution: liposuction. At the San Antonio practice of Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A., our plastic surgeon, Sheryl Pilcher, has helped many patients refine the contours of their bodies. While liposuction is not intended for extreme weight loss, it can help reduce the appearance of conspicuous fat deposits, creating a leaner more defined shape. During a personal consultation, Dr. Pilcher will evaluate your case and determine whether liposuction at our San Antonio plastic surgery practice is right for you.
Liposuction can be used to treat deposits of fat throughout the body, and is equally effective for both men and women. Liposuction can be used to treat multiple areas during a singular procedure and in conjunction with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck. The liposuction procedure begins with the administration of either local or general anesthesia, depending on the wishes of the patient and the extent of the outpatient surgery. Once the patient has been anesthetized, Dr. Pilcher makes an approximately quarter-inch incision at the desired surgical site, through which a small, thin, tube-like device called a cannula is inserted. Using a push-pull technique, Dr. Pilcher maneuvers the cannula back and forth throughout the layer of fat to break up the cells so they can be suctioned out. Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, the small incisions can be closed using dissolvable sutures. Recovery is done at home, and most patients are able to return to their normal routines about one to two weeks after surgery. There are many variations on traditional liposuction available; contact Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A., in San Antonio to discover the many options we have to offer.
