About Liposuction

At the Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center, we are proud to offer the latest techniques to safely reduce fat from certain body parts. Liposuction is a body reshaping procedure that is performed on men and women that removes fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttock, and more to produce a trimmer appearance. This treatment can also be blended to treat multiple body parts at one time. During your initial visit, Houston, TX Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Nikko, will examine your problematic areas so you can reach your personal goals. We want you to look and feel the best you can be!

Ideal Candidates

Liposuction is a good procedure for patients who are at a healthy weight but have pesky areas of fat that's hard to lose with exercise and diet and diet alone. Those contemplating liposuction should have skin that is taut because liposuction does not address loose or sagging skin. It is also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer for losing weight.

For Women:

Women contemplating liposuction should be past pregnancies as this could compromise the results. In addition, with each pregnancy, weight gain is possible. To avoid having to undergo more than one liposuction procedure, this will be discussed during the consultation.

For Men:

Liposuction for men is very popular. Our Houston, TX cosmetic surgery practice performs liposuction on men to reduce excess fat in the abdomen, chest, and flanks. It can help create a more defined, sharper appearance for our male patients, especially those struggling with a frustrating "gut" or undefined pectoral area due to a layer of fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Our male patients love their liposuction results as much as our female clients.

Surgical Technique

Surgical liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. During the procedure, a very small incision will be made into the skin in the treatment area, and a tube called a cannula will be entered into the incision. The cannula is a tool that helps loosen the fat as it is being suctioned out. Once the fatty deposits have been removed, the incision will be closed. Depending on the number of areas treated, your surgery could last 1 – 3 hours. In our dedicated recovery area, your post-operation nurse will help manage your pain, and care for your incision site until your discharge.

What to Expect

You may be in recovery at home from liposuction for 1 – 3 weeks, depending on the number of treatments performed, and 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 7 to day 10. What is most important after having liposuction, is to allow your body to recover and heal. You may be able to go to work quickly (within 2 – 3 days) after your procedure, but we ask that you take it easy. Stick to light workouts and go for walks as you build up strength. Keep in mind, you may see changes after 6 weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is visible.
