One of the most stubborn areas of fat on the body is the love handles. No matter how much you diet or workout, you might still be plagued with lingering flank fat that just won’t go away. Liposuction treatment can effectively reduce the fat accumulation in troubled areas so you can have the hourglass shape you have been dreaming about.

Dr. Otto Huertas is a board-certified gynecologist and cosmetic surgeon at Dallas Cosmetic Center who offers liposuction treatment for flank fat. If you are struggling with unwanted bulges, we encourage you to contact our Dallas, Texas office to schedule a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for liposuction.

All about liposuction

At Dallas Cosmetic Center in Dallas, Texas, Dr. Huertas performs liposuction in an on-site treatment room while patients are awake. Most patients report liking the added comfort and safety of being fully aware during the procedure.

Liposuction helps improve the body’s contours and remove unwanted flank fat deposits that persist between the skin and muscle even after diligent exercise and weight loss. Body sculpting using liposuction is a great way to achieve the silhouette you want so your clothes fit better, and your confidence can be restored.

Flank liposuction can be combined with body contouring on other areas of the body, such as the thighs, tummy, arms, and buttocks. Dr. Huertas will work with you to create a customized treatment plan to address areas of concern.

Liposuction effectively removes troublesome fat and is especially useful for achieving the body contours you want if you are already at your ideal weight. The best candidates for liposuction should have elasticity in their skin because liposuction does not work well if the skin has been overly stretched out and is loose.

If you are a woman considering liposuction to remove flank fat, then you should be past wanting to have children because pregnancy alters the results of liposuction.

Benefits of liposuction for flank fat

Benefits of undergoing liposuction in Dallas include:

  • No need for general anesthesia
  • Effectively removes unwanted fat cells
  • Very little or no discomfort
  • Rapid recovery
  • Convenient in-clinic procedure

As with all cosmetic procedures, you should have realistic expectations before undergoing liposuction. Liposuction is not a weight-loss solution. It should only be performed if you are near your target weight.

What is the recovery time from liposuction?

It can take several weeks to fully recover from liposuction, depending on the size of the treated areas. You’ll experience bruising and swelling following liposuction that can persist for 1 – 2 weeks. Sutures are typically removed 7 – 10 days following the procedure.

During recovery, you should minimize stress and give your body time to heal. Avoid heavy workouts. Start with simple exercises, like walking, until your body has fully recovered.

Patients start to notice the body contouring results about six weeks after liposuction, and it can take from 6 –10 months to fully notice your improved body shape.
