Frequently asked questions about the liposuction procedure

copy of istock 169998838 1 Do you find yourself dissatisfied with areas of stubborn fat that fail to go away with diet and exercise? Have you struggled with targeted fat loss and are ready to make a change? Find your curves and desired body shape with Dr. Thomas Wiener of Houston, TX. He is a plastic surgeon that can make dreams happen, allowing patients to improve their body contours quickly and easily with minimally invasive procedures such as liposuction. 

What is liposuction? 

Dr. Thomas Wiener is a plastic surgeon who describes liposuction or lipoplasty, as a way of improving body contours with the removal of fat cells in a targeted area. The fat cells are manually removed with a long cannula inserted into the body and made to suction them out. 

Where can liposuction be performed? 

Liposuction can be used anywhere on the body, but is commonly used for the hips, thighs, stomach, flanks, and arms. 

How does liposuction compare to a tummy tuck? 

Liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat from the targeted area, while a tummy tuck provides both fat removal and skin removal. During a consultation appointment at Thomas Wiener Plastic Surgery, patients are evaluated to determine if they would benefit from skin removal in addition to their liposuction procedure. 

Is liposuction a weight loss solution? 

Weight loss with liposuction can occur, but this is not the goal of liposuction. Liposuction is intended as a body contouring procedure used to remove unwanted fat, not as a weight loss solution. 

Who is a good candidate for liposuction? 

Patients best for liposuction are individuals who are within their ideal weight range and are struggling with reducing fat in a specific area of the body, even with proper diet and exercise. A consultation visit is the best way to determine candidacy for this and other body contouring procedures available at our facility.
