Liposuction Treatment in Lubbock, TX

If you are concerned about your weight, there are plenty of healthy lifestyle choices to make that help you achieve a slimmed-down appearance, but what do you do about your body’s predisposition to store fat in some areas and not others? If you’ve committed to a good wellness routine, but still don’t see improvement in body shape because of stubborn fat deposits in problem areas, liposuction can provide you with an answer. At the cosmetic plastic surgery office of Eric Minns, MD, PA, we offer liposuction in Lubbock, TX to help sculpt improved body contours.

What is Liposuction Treatment?

Liposuction is the surgical removal of fatty deposits in certain areas of the body. Using a small tool, Dr. Minns suctions fat cells from commonly problematic parts of the body, such as:

• Hips
• Tummy
• Thighs
• Waist

Liposuction even works on areas of the face, to reduce appearance of a double chin (despite a healthy weight), and can aid in gynecomastia (treatment of male breasts). Liposuction is slimming and is able to change the shape of areas of your body that are unaffected by diet and exercise. If you have love-handles, saddlebags, or other stubborn fatty deposits – these could be the result of a genetic predisposition that is simply a part of how your body is shaped, which cannot necessarily be affected by eating the right foods and getting a healthy amount of physical activity. Dr. Eric Minns’ Lubbock liposuction treatment is designed to slim these areas down by permanently removing fat cells, so you can enjoy a well-contoured shape that is proportionate to the rest of your body.

Getting Liposuction in Lubbock, TX

Before recommending any plastic surgery treatment, Dr. Minns conducts an initial examination to help establish your goals for care and what procedure will help you achieve the desired results. Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia and is typically an outpatient procedure, but may occasionally require an overnight stay, if treatment is extensive. During treatment, small incisions are made and a thin tube is used to remove fat cells. The removal of fatty build-up is often aided by an injection or ultrasound waves that break up cells and promote successful extraction.

If you’re considering liposuction, keep the following in mind:

• Liposuction works best for those who have small pockets of fat that need to be diminished to match the contours of the rest of their body. Liposuction is not a successful treatment for issues of obesity.

• Treatment is best supported by a maintaining good overall health. You can successfully maintain your treatment results by continuing to make good choices about the foods you eat and your activity levels. Unhealthy habits can lead to weight gain in other areas of the body, or even the expansion of remaining fat cells in treated areas.

• Liposuction works best for patients with good skin elasticity. If you have loose skin, lipo treatment won’t change the tightness of skin’s surface. Surgical removal of fat creates better contours, but it is not a part of a treatment regimen for loose skin or cellulite.
