Liposuction Revision and CorrectionHouston, TX

A popular option for people who want to enhance or improve their appearance is to invest in weight loss treatments such as liposuction. In the most basic definition, liposuction removes unwanted fat from the body. People continue following the belief that it is as simple as that. In reality, one small mistake during a procedure can have negative consequences for the individual.

Following a botched liposuction procedure, the patient may experience fear and uncertainty about what to do. Other times, the patient wants to make certain changes that will reverse or correct the issues. While we offer patients various forms of liposuction, we also offer liposuction revision and correction.

Understanding the Limits of Liposuction

Part of the issue with liposuction procedures is that people may not fully understand how liposuction works. One of the more common forms of liposuction uses a small tube, known as a cannula, to vacuum excess fat from specific parts of the body. With liposuction, we can remove excess and unwanted fat from the:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper Arms
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Calves
  • Ankles
  • Back

Liposuction works best when removing a smaller amount of excess fat. A patient who wants to remove a lot of fat will have a better chance with regular dieting or a bariatric procedure. Following liposuction, it is common for patients to experience loose skin or other issues. However, some people will find that the procedure results in the opposite changes than what they want.

Risks of Liposuction

People who reach out to us for liposuction revision and correction struggle with negative effects such as:

  • Bumpy, wavy or lower skin elasticity
  • Pockets of fluid forming underneath the skin
  • Potential for a fat embolism
  • Kidney or heart problems
  • Infection
  • Numbness

While there may be some pain following successful liposuction, botched liposuction can cause pain that only gets worse over time. If the skin begins to appear wavy or has bumps following the procedure, then it is most likely the result of the uneven fat removal. In some cases, these changes can become permanent. People may find that botched liposuction leads to temporary pockets of fluid forming under the skin, known as seromas.

A fat embolism will occur when loose pieces of fat break away before gathering in the lungs or traveling to the brain. While this is rare, it is a medical emergency that requires immediate attention. People who are displeased with the results of their liposuction do not have to live with the undesirable and sometimes life-threatening results.

Liposuction Revision and Correction

One example of how we help patients who go through a botched liposuction procedure is with a skin tightening procedure. Patients with skin that is missing much of its original elasticity will fill find that the skin sags or droops after the liposuction. The skin tightening procedure can help to return elasticity to the skin to provide the desired appearance the patient desires.

Since people are always searching for great deals and the lower rates, they may seek discounted liposuction in other countries. However, this is where the risk for botched liposuction is highest. It is important to seek professional medical liposuction from a credible practice, such as Rodriguez Rejuvenation. We also treat patients who are experiencing constant numbness near the area of the incision.

We can help even out the bumps or waves on the skin that result from a botched liposuction. Liposuction is not the substitute for weight loss that media outlets push people to believe. Rather, it is a procedure to accompany healthy dieting and weight loss by removing the excess pieces of fat that will not go away with natural methods. We will also review any after-care methods the patient needs to follow after the procedure.

Liposuction Correction and Repair

Liposuction has been heralded as the weapon of choice in the battle of the bulge since its introduction in the U.S. in the early 1980s. And just like every other technology through the years, liposuction has advanced and evolved.

On this page you’ll discover the various types of liposuction available at Rodriguez Rejuvenation – from traditional liposuction to the cutting edge technology of SmartLipo, Vaser Lipo, Mesotherapy and Lipodissolve. By learning these types of liposuction you will be able to make a more informed decision as to which liposuction procedure will best fit your specific needs.

Tradition Liposuction in Houston

Traditional liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that literally vacuums away fat deposits from underneath the skin by way of suction. A cannula, which serves as a suction probe, is inserted through an incision into the deep fat layer of the problem area. Using a back and forth motion, the doctor moves the cannula through the fat breaking up the fat cells. A vacuum pump then sucks the fat away. Traditional liposuction is best suited for patients who have larger areas of fat to get rid of. Since this liposuction technique is a surgical procedure it does require general anesthesia. The associated recovery time can last from eight to ten weeks so some adjustment in work and lifestyle will be necessary. Compression garments are worn after the procedure to reduce bleeding and minimize swelling. Some degree of bruising is normal with liposuction but it usually goes away in about a week. See our other three alternatives and learn which one is right for you:

Vaser Lipo
