Patient Reviews

“Dr. Ortegon is absolutely amazing! I had my mommy makeover in 2022, which included breast augmentation, implants with lift, lipo, and tummy tuck, and I could not be more happier with my results. My belly button is perfect, my curves are still there, and he did exactly what I wanted.”

Who Is A Good Candidate For Liposuction?

The best candidates for liposuction are healthy non-smokers who are not obese. Men and women who have a stable body weight and localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise may want to consider liposuction.

The best results are achieved when the patient is in good health, but desires body-slimming in those resistant areas. Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is the surgical removal of fat, and can remove fat where other methods have failed. Liposuction is not a method for losing weight, and is not effective in eliminating cellulite, or tightening loose and sagging skin.

Common areas that are treated by liposuction include the thighs, abdomen, arms, back, hips, buttocks, chest, face, calves and ankles.

Liposuction Procedure

Our San Antonio Liposuction procedure is a multi-step process, and is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. First, the area being treated is infused with tumescent fluid. This fluid helps keep the proper balance of fluid in the area, since some fluids are removed along with fat. Then, small incisions are made, so that one of our plastic surgeons can access the targeted fat. The doctor uses a thin tube to suction fat from the area being treated. After the proper amount of fat is removed, your small incisions are closed.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that will help you achieve a slimmer and more refined look by removing that stubborn fat. When undergoing Liposuction San Antonio patients can expect benefits to include:

Targeted removal of stubborn fat

Improved contours on the body

Improved proportions of the body

*Individual results may vary

Liposuction Recovery

Following your San Antonio liposuction with Dr. Ortegon, you will need to spend some time resting, and will need wear special compression garments to ensure proper healing. During a follow-up visit soon after surgery, your drains and stitches will be removed. Swelling and bruising is common, but these are temporary side effects.

As the swelling subsides, you should see results of your liposuction procedure. Patients can return to work and regular activities as soon as they feel comfortable, which can be as soon as a few days after surgery. Exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for a few weeks.

How Long Do Liposuction Results Last?

As long as your weight remains stable, your liposuction results should be long lasting. Fat will not return to the treated area after surgery.

Our goal is that you experience the very best liposuction San Antonio has to offer. However, liposuction does not remove all fat cells from the area, so it is possible to re-gain weight. For optimum results, you must maintain a good diet and rigorous exercise regimen.

Liposuction FAQs

Liposuction effectively contours the body by permanently removing fat cells. It is not a weight-loss procedure but works to remove stubborn areas of fat and create a slimmer, more toned appearance.

There are a few steps to liposuction recovery. Patients will typically need to rest for a few days after the procedure before returning to work. After about two weeks, most swelling, bruising, and discomfort will subside and you may return to all regular activities. However, most patients should continue to wear compression garments for 1-2 months as directed by their surgeon.

Liposuction can result in minor pain, which some patients describe as similar to feeling bruised throughout the area where the procedure was done. It should not be overwhelmingly painful, and discomfort can be lessened by getting up and walking around through recovery and by taking medications.

Without proper care through recovery, there are some risks associated with liposuction including infection or damage to the skin. Some common side effects include bruising, swelling, change in skin sensation, and discomfort.

Liposuction does not tighten the skin. If you have a more significant amount of fat removed, it may be necessary to undergo additional procedures such as body lift to address loose skin.

During liposuction, fat cells are permanently removed. However, it is possible to regain weight through new fat cells, which usually develop in other areas of the body.
