Sometimes, you need a little help to eliminate the excess pockets of subcutaneous fat in your abdomen, thighs, arms, or other body parts. When dieting and exercise fail, consider the best liposuction in Houston to permanently remove unwanted fat pockets and achieve a chiseled body.
Suction Away Unwanted Fat
Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise is essential for a healthy life. But sometimes, exercise and dieting alone aren’t enough to remove stubborn fat from targeted areas of your body, such as the abdomen, lower back, and thighs. Stubborn fat can prevent you from appreciating the true results of your exercise and workouts. Dr. Erickson offers various liposuction techniques, such as power-assisted lipo and VASER® liposuction, to remove targeted fat deposits and help you achieve a chiseled, contoured body.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that can remove excess fat from different areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, neck, and back. The procedure involves using a small, hollow tube called a cannula to suction out excess fat deposits. Dr. Erickson offers the best liposuction in Houston as an effective way to contour the body and remove unwanted fat deposits. That being said, it’s not a weight-loss surgery and should not be used as a substitute for healthy eating and exercise.
Goals of Liposuction:
- Removing excess fat deposits from targeted areas
- Targeting specific pockets of fat, which isn’t possible with traditional weight loss
- Improving the overall contours of the body
Recovery After Liposuction
Even the best liposuction in Houston requires recovery time. It varies from person to person, but you can expect to feel groggy and sore for the first few days after the surgery. You may also notice swelling, tenderness, bruising, and other side effects around the incision sites. Most people take about two weeks off from work to recover, although you may need more time if you have a physically demanding job.
You must follow your surgeon’s aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. This may include wearing a compression garment, which helps to reduce swelling and support your body as it heals. You must also take antibiotics according to the prescription to minimize the risk of infections. Furthermore, you must avoid strenuous activity, sun exposure, and hot baths for the first few weeks after surgery.
