CONVENIENTLY LOCATED TO SERVE FORT WORTH, SOUTHLAKE, AND COLLEYVILLE
Dr. Louis Strock offers liposuction in Fort Worth as a body contouring procedure and as an essential part of surgeries that transfer fat to other parts of the breast, body or face. If you are in good overall health but have isolated areas of fat, liposuction can be an excellent treatment option.
Lipo can remove fat and improve the soft tissue contours of a number of areas, including the abdomen, back, buttocks, waist, arms, chin, inner and outer thighs, and neck. It can be used as a technique during a number of contouring procedures, including gynecomastia surgery (for oversized male breasts) and the arm lift.
Individuals frustrated by pockets of fat that remain despite diet and exercise can request a consultation online to talk to Dr. Strock about whether liposuction may be an appropriate treatment. Or feel free to call our office at 817-335-1616 to have a member of our helpful staff schedule an appointment.
Customizing Your Procedure
Both conventional and ultrasonic liposuction methods use a modified “tumescent” or superwet technique, during which Dr. Strock uses large amounts of diluted local anesthetic solution to pretreat the fatty deposits prior to surgical removal. Most lipo procedures, other than small areas, are performed under general anesthesia to allow for safe monitoring and position changes intraoperatively that allow for optimal results. Liposuction is often combined with breast enhancement or other body contouring procedures.
Recent advances in technology have allowed for the possibility of using the fat removed during liposuction to add volume elsewhere, most commonly to the breast or face.
“nothing less than perfection”
“This team is absolutely incredible. I have been a patient of Dr. Strock for 8 years now and both procedures I have had done were nothing short of amazing. His staff is caring and super friendly. He is very patient, aims for and settles for nothing less than perfection.”
Proper preparation for a liposuction procedure will help to avoid complications. Dr. Strock will provide you with all the instructions necessary for preparing for your liposuction surgery effectively.
Preparation instructions typically include the following:
- Stop consuming alcohol and tobacco – You will need to avoid alcohol and tobacco for some time before and after the liposuction surgery. Both drinking and smoking trigger inflammation and negatively affect the immune system. They can restrict rapid recovery from surgery and may also result in the development of complications.
- Maintain a steady weight – Prior to your liposuction surgery, your body mass index (BMI) will be assessed. If it is higher than what’s considered optimal for the procedure, liposuction will not be performed. That’s why it’s imperative that you maintain a steady weight leading up to the day of the surgery. This must be done through a healthy diet and regular exercise.
- Make arrangements for domestic help – Depending on the extent of your liposuction, you may be restricted from resuming your regular activities for a week or two. Because of this, if you have domestic responsibilities and/or have children to take care of, you must arrange help in advance for the recovery period. You should also arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.
The Liposuction Healing Process
During the healing process after fat removal, it will be vital that you follow Dr. Strock’s care directions. This minimizes the chance of complications and ensures the best possible lipo results from your procedure.
Postoperative recovery following liposuction entails a short period of activity restriction and a pressure garment to be worn for about 4 weeks. This elastic garment helps the skin better contour to the body’s new contours. It also serves to minimize post-surgical swelling and bruising in the treatment region.
When considering liposuction, it is important to take price into account. The amount of fat to be removed, the size and location of the treatment areas, and the type of liposuction performed all affect liposuction cost. CareCredit is available for financing.
