If you are having difficulties getting rid of fat deposits, liposuction, performed at our practice serving Keller, Fort Worth and Southlake, Texas, can help you.
The effects of sun, time, gravity, pregnancy, and repeated cycles of weight gain and -loss play havoc on the body. Liposuction is a powerful tool in eliminating those “hard to get rid of” fat deposits. Liposuction is a surgical procedure where fat deposits are suctioned out through hollow tubes called cannulas using tiny incisions. In certain circumstances, ultrasound energy is added to help with fat extraction. Other items, laser energy in the form of Smart-lipo® may be used to tighten the skin. Areas routinely treated with liposuction in Dr. Rumalla’s practice include:
- Flanks (love handles)
- Outer thighs
- Inner thighs
Dr. Rumalla usually performs his liposuction procedures in our Southlake surgery center utilizing general anesthesia for both your safety and comfort. The procedure is usually well tolerated, and most patients will have only minimal discomfort after the first several days. Patients will often be pleasantly surprised to see dramatic changes within a week, though the final result often takes weeks to months. Liposuction procedures at our Keller, Southlake, or Fort Worth practices are often combined with excisional procedures like tummy tucks and thigh lifts when there is a lot of skin involved. Patients having liposuction will need to wear compression garments for several weeks. Patients who undergo liposuction procedures often experience a new found confidence in their new look and the balance to their body contour, as well as in the improved fit of their clothes.
As always, the practice offers a complimentary initial cosmetic consultation with Dr. Rumalla, during which he will spend quality time with you to develop a surgical plan that best fits your needs and explain the risks and benefits of the procedures. Prospective patients will find that liposuction procedures performed at our Fort Worth office are remarkably affordable and the practice offers many financing options.
