A lot of people who have had liposuction in Houston, found themselves getting upset whenever they had fatty body areas that were unresponsive to rigorous attempts at exercising and strict dieting. If you are one of those people, do not stress yourself wondering what’s probably wrong with your body. There is nothing wrong with your body. More likely than not, your body has just accumulated fat deposits that are next to impossible to remove via the conventional diet and exercise methods. The effective way to eliminate these stubborn fat areas is through a surgical procedure known as liposuction or lipoplasty. The stubborn fat deposits may occupy any space or spot in your body. However, it is pretty common for stubborn deposits to occur in these areas: stomach and waistline; hips and buttocks; chin and neckline; upper arms; and thighs. Lipoplasty is a “body-sculpting” procedure, which entails that excess body fat is first removed before the body contour is sculpted into a more proportionate figure. A plastic surgeon, like Dr. Cortés, must initially determine whether you are ideal for a liposuction surgery or not. Houston-based Dr. Cortés is nationally known for his thorough and excellent surgery works. The Board-certified surgeon has made it his passion to fulfill, as much as possible, the exact cosmetic aspirations of his patients. It is advisable that you schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Cortés, and be candid in sharing your issues and hopes regarding your excess body fats. In undergoing a lipoplasty surgery, the ultimate goal is to help you develop or regain a better body shape. Again, this is done by reducing (if not eliminating) unsightly fatty deposits such as saddlebags, love handles and double-chin. Thus, you need to be in good physical condition (although possessed with stubborn fat deposits) before Dr. Cortés may approve your surgery. The plastic surgeon will make use of the highly advanced and efficient techniques in surgery to deliver the best intended results for you. Depending on the extent of your operation and excess fat to remove, the surgery may take one to five hours to be completed. It may utilize either general or local anesthesia, and can be performed as an outpatient procedure. In some cases, Dr. Cortés may advise you to stay for a day or so inside a post-surgical facility to ensure your safe recovery.
