Liposuction in San Antonio – A Solution to Stubborn Fat
A patient favorite for decades, liposuction continues to be one of the most effective methods for reducing areas of stubborn, hard-to-lose fat throughout the face and body. Dr. Hernandez performs fully personalized liposuction procedures to help her patients achieve the healthier, younger contours they want for their bodies.
How Can Liposuction Help You?
Dr. Hernandez recommends liposuction for anyone who has been unable to lose specific areas of problem fat despite having a healthy lifestyle. With age, men and women can develop problem areas—such as love handles, a double chin, or belly pooch—which often refuse to shrink even with a nutritious diet and regular exercise. Why? The cause is often the development of subcutaneous fat, the underlying layer that lies just beneath the skin, which creates a soft (rather than a toned and well-defined) appearance of the body. Unlike visceral fat, which surrounds the organs and is burned off with diet and exercise, subcutaneous fat often lingers behind.
Liposuction works to remove these stubborn fat cells that are holding you back from achieving your aesthetic goals. Dr. Hernandez will use liposuction to artfully sculpt the contours of your face or body, resulting in a naturally slimmer appearance. This fat reduction surgery is best for patients who are close to or at their ideal weight, but are struggling to attain the well-toned and well-defined look they desire. It is not to be used as a substitute for a healthy lifestyle or a solution to obesity.
Liposuction can be used to reduce fat from various areas, including the face, neck and chin, chest, back, arms, flanks, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, etc.
How Does Liposuction Work?
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that works by removing unwanted fat cells from beneath the skin. Dr. Hernandez will speak with you during a one-on-one consultation to create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique goals and body.
To perform liposuction, Dr. Hernandez will make a small incision in the skin near the area of unwanted fat. A thin tube (cannula) attached to a surgical vacuum is inserted through the incision into the underlying fat. The cannula is then carefully maneuvered around the fat to break apart fat cells and permanently remove them from the body. When performed by a professional cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Hernandez, liposuction can accomplish an even, well-balanced reduction of fat that will look as though it had been lost through natural means alone.
What Happens After Liposuction?
Once your liposuction with Dr. Hernandez is finished, you will notice an immediate change in the treated area. Some bruising or swelling is normal, and Dr. Hernandez will apply any necessary dressings or compression garments to assist with healing.
The length of your liposuction recovery will depend on several factors, including where liposuction was performed and how much fat was removed. You may need to take a few days off of work as your body heals from your procedure. As swelling dissipates and your skin heals, you will notice a beautiful slimming effect in the treated area(s).
The final results of liposuction can be life-changing and confidence boosting. Men and women are often thrilled with the results of their surgery and motivated to continue living a healthy lifestyle to maintain their new slimmer figure. The fat that is removed with liposuction is gone for good, and with proper nutrition and exercise habits, you can enjoy the results for many years to come.
Liposuction has been a popular non-surgical body contouring treatment for years, and it is still one of the most effective techniques for eliminating stubborn fat from common problem areas once and for all. But with the advent of computerized VASER-assist, liposuction is now much gentler on the body and Dr. Hernandez has even more precise control as she performs the treatment. She can use VASERlipo to remove fat from almost anywhere on the body, including the lower face and neck, tailoring the procedure to match your desired outcome. VASERlipo is not a remedy for obesity, but a solution for those struggling to smooth away fat deposits with diet and exercise alone.
