A good diet and exercise regimen are important keys to a healthy lifestyle. Despite taking care of themselves, many patients find that they have certain pockets of fat that remain resistant to weight loss and exercise, which might call for a cosmetic body procedure. Whether it’s a double chin, love handles on the waist, saddlebags on the thighs, or a stubborn belly bulge, a liposuction procedure in Fort Worth may be an option to remove the excess fat and improve the contour of these areas.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. It is a technique that permanently removes unwanted fat by suctioning it out through very small incisions. It can be used safely in almost all locations throughout the body. It is important to remember that liposuction is not for weight loss or a treatment for obesity, but rather an opportunity to achieve a more attractive shape through body contouring which can improve your appearance in many ways:

Surgical Technique

Dr. Steele typically performs liposuction as an outpatient procedure under both general anesthesia and local anesthesia with mild sedation. Small incisions are made and a metal tube (cannula) is used to place saline solution containing adrenaline and lidocaine into the fatty areas to be removed. This is known as tumescent solution. Tumescent solution provides turgor (firmness) to the tissues which assists with fat removal, lidocaine provides pain relief, and the adrenaline (epinephrine) shrinks the blood vessels in the tissue to minimize bleeding.

A variety of different liposuction techniques are available, but Dr. Steele prefers the SAFELipo® technique pioneered by Dr. Simeon Wall Jr. This technique uses power-assisted liposuction (PAL) to safely separate the fat and then remove the fat in a smooth and even fashion which minimizes asymmetries and contour irregularities.

At the end of the surgery, foam pads may be placed over certain areas such as your hips, thighs, and waist, and then you will be placed into a compression garment. Drainage tubes may be necessary with very large amounts of fat removal.

During/After Surgery

The length of surgery will vary depending on the number of areas to be treated and whether or not another surgery is performed simultaneously. In some combined cases, such as a mommy makeover or lower body lift (post bariatric), an overnight observation may be required.

Although you will notice some swelling and bruising, you will notice an improvement in your contour right away. It is very important to wear the compression garments for 6-8 weeks to encourage skin contraction and the resolution of swelling. Normal activity and sedentary work can be resumed within 3-5 days. Cardio activity should be limited for at least 3-4 weeks. It will take at least 3-6 months for all of the swelling to resolve.

Dr Steele did an amazing job on my surgery! I knew from the moment I walked in for my first appointment and I was greeted by his super sweet wife, that I had found the right place. Erica, the nurse always answered any of my questions and helped put me at ease post surgery. I am finally pain free, and that’s all thanks to Dr Steele.
