Effective Liposuction and Surgical Fat Removal in Austin, Texas

Liposuction is one of today’s most popular cosmetic procedures. Minimal pain, bleeding, and risk are offset by truly impressive results — results you could never achieve on your own.


Conditions

Stubborn fat deposits on the waist, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, arms, chin, neck, jowls, and cheeks.


The Treatment

The surgeon injects a fluid containing saline, an anesthetic, and an agent to reduce bleeding into the treatment area. The fluid causes swelling (tumescence), which separates fat from the surrounding tissue. He or she then suctions fat out through small metal tubes (cannulas). The treatment is virtually painless and relatively permanent. Once fat cells are removed they are gone forever.


The Schedule

Following an initial in-person surgical consultation, Dr. Eskenazi provides his best recommendations for patients based on their unique anatomy. Dr. Eskenazi performs liposuction procedures at an AAA-accredited ambulatory surgery center. The extent of the surgery is customized and depends entirely upon the individual.

Depending on the amount of liposuction in terms of volume and time, patients may receive twilight sedation or general anesthesia. This can be customized to patients’ needs and preferences.

Upon conclusion of the procedure, patients will be placed in compressive garments which will need to be worn around-the-clock for up to six weeks.

After liposuction, it is extremely important to maintain compression in the areas to minimize swelling and bleeding and to achieve optimal results.
