Liposuction is one of the most popular types of body contouring for removing small areas of fat. The procedure is tailored to your specific needs, whether you want to tone your midsection, round out your buttocks, or address issues in other areas of your body. Dr. Balinger offers liposuction for men and women in Houston, Conroe, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a type of fat removal that targets stubborn fat that cannot be removed with exercise and diet. Buttock, abdomen, thigh, and calf liposuction reveals the muscle contours that are hidden under a layer of subcutaneous fat. The fat that is in your skin is the last type of fat that your body releases when you burn extra calories, so it could take years before you achieve your fat loss goals with calorie deficits.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
The average cost of liposuction is $3,500 to $6,500. We will discuss your cost after the consultation with Dr. Balinger. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.
What is Liposculpture?
Liposculpture is a technique that Dr. Balinger uses to create the look of muscle definition by carefully sculpting the fat in the area. It is beneficial for the buttocks, thighs, and other areas that you wish to have a sculpted appearance.
What is Abdominal Etching?
Abdominal etching is a type of liposculpture that mimics the look of “six-pack abs.” If you have abdominal lipo or a tummy tuck, Dr. Ballinger can use abdominal etching to remove small amounts of fat to create the look of toned abdominal muscles.
What Are the Benefits of Liposuction?
- Very little downtime
- Can be combined with other types of body sculpting or as a standalone procedure
- Removes fat that may take years to eliminate with diet and exercise alone
- Appropriate for most areas of the body
How is Liposuction Performed?
Liposuction requires small incisions that are made in the treatment area. The incisions produce small scars that are not visible to most people. After making the incision, Dr. Balinger inserts a hollow tube that is use to dislodge and suction away the extra fat cells.
What is Recovery Like After Liposuction?
You may have some swelling, tenderness, and bruising after your liposuction procedure. You should not put pressure on the area for the first three to seven days to help the tissues heal properly.
How Long Will Liposuction Results Last?
Liposuction removes fat cells in the treatment area, but it will not prevent new fat from forming around the same area. You can maintain the results of your lipo treatment by continuing to live a healthy, active lifestyle.
