Despite the promises of late night infomercials promoting the latest miracle device to get rid of fat, there is only one way to target a troublesome fatty area; liposuction. Many people find that the last step to achieving the silhouette they’ve been working so hard to get is to schedule liposuction with Dr. Bryan Correa. Dr. Correa is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon with many years of experience with liposuction and other cosmetics procedures. If you have pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise, you should consider liposuction to finally rid yourself of these stubborn fat deposits.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED BY LIPOSUCTION?

Liposuction replaced breast augmentation surgery as the number one cosmetic procedure performed in the United States in 2013. It is a safe and effective procedure if it is performed by a licensed plastic surgeon. Residents of Houston who are considering liposuction should keep in mind that it is the skill of the surgeon which determines the outcome; to get the best liposuction possible, you’ll need a highly trained plastic surgeon to perform the procedure.

 
Liposuction targets fat stored in areas that typically don’t respond well to exercise such as:

 

Thighs

Upper Arms

Back

Abdomen

Waist

Inner Knee

Calves & Ankles

Chest (Male)

Hips & Buttocks

Neck & Chin

LIPOSUCTION METHODS

Liposuction is now a safe treatment thanks to the work of doctors who developed methods of removing excess fat without the risk of anesthesia and blood loss that accompanied treatments prior to the early 1980s. From this work, there are three main methods used by plastic surgeons today including tumescent liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction.

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)

This technique uses sound waves to liquefy fat which is then removed by suction. UAL is a great method for large volume liposuction or areas with ‘tough’ fat such as the back. Because of this, it is a treatment of choice for removing fat in the central body such as the back. It is also used to treat enlarged male breast conditions. This method isn’t recommended for use in removing fat from the inner thighs, knees, face or neck.

Tumescent Liposuction (SAL)

This is the most common method used today. The method refers to injecting the treatment area with a large volume of an anesthetic solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine prior to the procedure. This causes tumescence, or swelling, of the tissue as well as a constriction of the blood vessels which greatly reduces any bleeding during the treatment. The anesthetic is so effective at blocking pain that liposuction does not necessarily need general anesthesia, although many patients still prefer this.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It is very important to Dr. Correa that his patients understand all aspects of liposuction before making the decision to move forward with surgery. It is his philosophy that his success as a plastic surgeon is dependent not only on his surgical skills but also his ability to fully understand the needs and goals of his patients. By taking the time to understand each patient’s desires, he can ensure they get the treatment or procedure that is truly right for them.

 

Dr. Correa provides unique results to each patient with an initial consultation. Dr. Correa carefully evaluates each woman to determine the right combination of treatments that are right for her. At his practice, there are no cookie cutter procedures, so if you’re interested in a customized tummy tuck, tailored to your wants and needs, then you have come to the right place.

CONSIDERING LIPOSUCTION?

 

Healthy people of normal weight, who have localized resistant fat pockets and realistic expectations regarding body sculpting, are good candidates for liposuction. Liposuction is not intended to treat obesity and is not a permanent solution to the accumulation of fat.

Liposuction is a procedure that can make a profound difference in your body shape in one operation. Dr. Correa has worked with many Houston residents who need liposuction to achieve the aesthetic goals they have been working so hard to achieve. Come into our facility for an initial consultation—Dr. Correa will be happy to answer any question you have about what you could expect from liposuction.

Dr. Correa’s Philosophy on

Liposuction

“Liposuction is the most common cosmetic surgery done in America – and for good reason – it is very effective. In spite of many new promising technologies, liposuction remains a mainstay of treatment for stubborn areas of fat that just don’t respond to diet and exercise.”

Lost 50 Pounds

MOMMY MAKEOVER

After losing 50 pounds and turning 50, I wanted to lift some sagging areas and boost my morale. Dr. Correa lifted my arms and breasts, did a tummy tuck, breast implants and liposuction.
It’s a bit early in my recovering but I can already see results from the liposuction. I’m very happy with my breasts and my tummy tuck. My arms have been the most uncomfortable as far as healing goes, but I’m being patient and I know the outcome will be great.

I had an amazing experience!

Although I was very nervous to speak with a surgeon about having a breast reduction, Dr. Correa’s kind and gentle manner put me right at ease. He took the time to explain the procedure and what it would entail. Afterward the surgery, I definitely knew I had selected the right doctor for me. Everything has progressed just like he shared from day 1. I have followed his instructions for my post-op care, and I must admit I haven’t had any surprises. He was on point, and I knew what to anticipate. I’m confident that if I or my family, for that matter, would need any type of future cosmetic surgery, Dr. Correa would be our first choice. Thank you Dr. Correa for your professionalism, kindness and overall care. I am very grateful for you.

Dr. Correa is absolutely amazing!

Dr. Correa is absolutely amazing! It hasn’t been the easiest recovery but he and his staff have been very helpful and attentive. He has called several times to check on me and Gabrielle is very sweet and helpful – even when I have called to ask the same questions probably more than once lol – top notch surgeon and staff , he is definitely the best and I am very happy that I chose to go with him.

Wonderful Surgeon and Team!

BREAST LIFT

Dr. Correa and his team are amazing. They are so kind and patient. Dr. Correa goes out of his way to achieve the best results for you. He is also very honest about what to expect. He never makes you feel rushed if you have questions. With his talent he could easily intimidate or make a person wanting to fix flaws self conscious but he does not. Quite the opposite, he is most calming. Gabrielle and Rochelle are so helpful and sweet, if they have a bad day, you never know it. They make everything very easy and clear. I researched al LOT of Dr’s and went through photos of work for days. Dr. Correa’s stood out as the best and I am so glad I chose him to do my procedure. Totally worth it and I would trust and recommend he and his team to anyone that listens.

What an amazing physician!
