Sometimes, even your best efforts will not budge your most challenging areas of fat. Almost everyone has a few areas that accumulate and hold onto fat. Liposuction targets these challenging areas to give you a slimmer, more sculpted figure.
What is Liposuction for Body Contouring?
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes targeted areas of fat. El Paso Cosmetic Surgery offers several liposuction techniques to provide the best results. Unlike non-invasive liposuction alternatives, this procedure removes unwanted fat in a single treatment and provides immediate results. You can have liposuction almost anywhere on your body that collects stubborn fat.
*Individual results may vary.
How Does Liposuction Work?
Liposuction uses a few small incisions to insert a cannula. This thin, flexible device works to break up fat under the skin and suction it out. At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we use tumescent liposuction, which infuses the treatment area with a combination of saline, local anesthetic, and a vasoconstrictor. This combination reduces bleeding, swelling, and discomfort after the procedure, making recovery faster. Liposuction may use ultrasound or laser energy to help break up fat, making it easier to remove.
Are Liposuction Results Permanent?
Liposuction permanently removes fat cells, and your body will not replace them. However, the fat cells still in the area can expand if your weight increases. You can keep your liposuction results looking sculpted by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Many people find that the body contouring effects of liposuction make them feel even more motivated to keep working toward their aesthetic and health goals.
What Results Will I See With Liposuction?
You can usually see a difference immediately after your procedure, although minor swelling may keep you from fully appreciating it. Most people can return to work within a few days. Thanks to your El Paso Cosmetic Surgery team’s gentler liposuction techniques, you should feel almost fully recovered within a week.
Full results can take a few weeks to develop. If you have good skin elasticity in the area, you will often see your skin tighten over time so the area looks more contoured. Non-surgical treatments can stimulate collagen development to improve the skin’s firmness and resilience.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction works best when used to sculpt and shape targeted areas. It is not a weight-loss treatment. Ideal candidates for liposuction lead a healthy lifestyle but have problem areas they want to improve. You should have reasonable expectations and no health problems that would impact your safety or recovery.
What are the Alternatives to Liposuction?
Those who want to target stubborn fat without surgery may benefit from Coolsculpting®. This non-invasive treatment can freeze away unwanted fat, but changes will not be as dramatic as with liposuction. If your problems include sagging skin, you may benefit more from a procedure such as a tummy tuck that tightens skin while removing fat.
