You have been looking carefully at options for getting rid of the pockets of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise that you still have on your waist, hips, thighs, back, neck, or upper arms. You are looking for a fairly quick answer to the problem and seriously considering liposuction. But now you are wondering: what will my initial consultation for liposuction in Houston be like?
There is no need to fear your first visit with our liposuction specialist. We understand the distress of some fat never responding to diet and exercise. We also know the procedures that are most likely to help you rid your body of this fat so that you can improve your appearance and reach your goals.
Liposuction removes excess fat. It can be used on many areas to help improve your body contours. There are many methods of liposuction, but do not let that confuse or worry you. Our cosmetic surgeon knows the pros and cons of multiple forms of liposuction and will guide you toward the best options for your specific goals.
You will need to limit your activities and exercise as you heal. There is swelling that will slowly resolve. If you have any concerns about how you will need to change your usual routine after liposuction, be sure to discuss this during your initial consultation in Houston.
It will be very important that you have a good idea of your aesthetic goals, what bothers you the most, and where you would like the fat to disappear. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. You need to be at a stable, healthy weight before you have liposuction.
Your surgeon will evaluate your body and skin. Liposuction works best when you have elastic skin and respectable muscle tone. We will take photos of the before so that you will be able to compare them after surgery.
You will also discuss any current medical problems and medications. Bring a list of medications you use routinely, as well as vitamins and herbal supplements you take. Your surgeon will want to know about any prior surgeries you have had, especially if there were any problems during or after.
Bring a list of your questions and concerns. No question or concern is ever too small. We want you to feel comfortable with the choices you make. The more knowledge you have, the easier it will be for you to pick your preferred way to approach your goals. We expect you to have concerns as to whether you are a good candidate for liposuction and what the results will likely be. We will gladly discuss those subjects as well as practical concerns such as where my liposuction will be performed, what kind of scars I will have, and what my recovery will entail.
Our entire staff at ShineMD wants you to feel comfortable with your choices. We strive to answer any and all questions you have honestly and will gladly counsel you on what your best choices are to attain your goals.
