Liposuction

When you take care of your health and work hard to look your best, it can be especially frustrating to have places where fat builds up. These “trouble spots,” which commonly develop on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and chin, are often caused by genetics and may be out of our control. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Hill provides lasting fat reduction with liposuction in Frisco, TX, to help you have the slim, smooth contours and fit appearance you deserve. Patients considering liposuction travel from Plano, McKinney, Allen, and throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex to Lone Star Plastic Surgery to have Dr. Hill perform their procedures.

How can liposuction help?

Dr. Hill can use liposuction to address a variety of concerns, which commonly include:

  • Double chin
  • Belly bulge
  • Inner thigh fullness and “saddle bags” on the outer thighs
  • Upper back fat (“bra roll”)
  • “Love handles” on the flanks
  • Enlarged male breasts

It’s common for patients to have Dr. Hill address multiple areas during the same procedure. Patients interested in having fuller, more rounded buttocks can have Dr. Hill perform a Brazilian butt lift using fat collected during the liposuction procedure.

What is the cost of liposuction in Frisco & Plano?

Dr. Hill customizes liposuction procedures depending on the patient’s specific needs, so determining the cost of liposuction is done after the consultation. The size and number of treatment areas influence the final cost, along with other factors. After you’ve consulted with Dr. Hill, we provide a detailed price quote that you can take home and review without any pressure.

Am I a candidate for liposuction?

Healthy women and men who meet the following criteria are usually good candidates for liposuction:

  • At a stable weight
  • Want to reduce isolated areas of fat (not overall weight loss)
  • Have reasonably elastic skin

At your private consultation, Dr. Hill will talk with you about the improvements you want, perform a physical exam, and create a personalized treatment plan. He often combines liposuction with other procedures such as tummy tuck  and breast reduction. It is often included in mommy makeover procedures as well.

What happens during the liposuction procedure?

Dr. Hill performs liposuction as an outpatient procedure using a general anesthetic for your optimal comfort. He makes tiny incisions near the areas of unwanted fat and carefully suctions it out through a narrow metal tube called a cannula. Dr. Hill offers the advanced SAFELipo® body contouring technique for consistently smooth results, very little bruising, and minimal downtime.

What is recovery like after liposuction?

You will return home the day of surgery in the care of an adult friend or loved one. Treated areas are wrapped in compression bandages and will be sore, swollen, and bruised initially. Be sure to take slow gentle walks throughout the day during recovery to boost your circulation and the healing process.

Recovery Timeline

While experiences vary with areas treated and individual patient factors, expect recovery to progress according to the following general timeline:

  • Return to work and nonstrenuous activity: 5 to 7 days
  • Bruising fades: 7 to 10 days
  • Resume low-impact exercise: 3 weeks
  • Stop wearing compression garments: 4 weeks
  • Resume strenuous exercise: 6 weeks
  • Final results: 3 to 6 months or more (once swelling fades)

Make sure to follow Dr. Hill’s post-op instructions closely. If you have questions or concerns during your recovery, please contact our office.

Liposuction FAQ

How do I know if I need liposuction or a tummy tuck?

While both are body sculpting procedures, liposuction and tummy tuck surgery address different concerns. If you have a belly bulge caused by excess fat, liposuction may be enough on its own. If your belly is the result of stretched and separated abdominal muscles (diastatis recti), you will need a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck also tightens wrinkled, sagging abdominal skin and reshapes the bellybutton. Dr. Hill often combines these procedures to sculpt and firm the midsection.

Can fat come back after liposuction?

The fat cells removed with liposuction cannot grow back; however, the remaining fat cells can enlarge with weight gain and create new trouble spots. Dr. Hill recommends patients continue a healthy lifestyle after their surgery; most are especially motivated to do so to maintain their improved contours.

Is the recovery painful?

Treated areas will likely be sore but not painful after liposuction. Patients typically take prescription pain medication for the first few days and transition to over-the-counter alternatives as needed.

Do I really have to wear a compression garment following surgery?

Yes. Compression garments minimize fluid buildup in treated areas and help the skin heal smoothly over the new slimmer shape beneath. Many patients appreciate the gentle pressure while the areas are tender.

Will I lose weight with liposuction?

While liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, most patients look slimmer and fit into smaller clothing sizes once recovered.
