Liposuction in El Paso, TX

When you age, you will likely notice a gradual decrease in facial firmness or looseness in specific areas of your frame. This ordinary progression may make you look fatigued or older. To treat these visual issues, the team at El Paso Men's & Women's Clinic is thrilled to provide an exceptional technique known as laser-assisted lipo and fat grafting employing contemporary BeautiFill® technology at our practice in El Paso, TX. This minimally invasive system emits laser light within the skin to smoothly retrieve unwanted fat tissue from regions that include the flanks, thighs, and belly. The preserved fat is then reinjected into selected facial or body parts to provide soft, youthful fullness. With this aesthetic procedure, you can add fullness to the cheeks, lips, eye area, or smile lines around the mouth and nose. Alternatively, we can use the tissue for body contouring by boosting volume in the breasts or buttocks. This efficient solution involves little recovery time, making it an ideal alternative to traditional fat grafting. El Paso Men's & Women's Clinic also specializes in touch-up procedures if a previous liposuction did not provide your desired results. To find out more information about the benefits of laser-assisted liposuction and fat grafting, contact El Paso Men's & Women's Clinic to book a consultation.

Liposuction at El Paso Men's & Women's Clinic takes about 3 – 4 hours. To carry out this treatment, we apply a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable during your treatment. After we clean the treatment region, the team will begin by inserting a fine laser wand to suction a healthy tissue specimen. After this, the fat sample will be immediately prepared with one fat removal system. When it has been prepared for transfer, our technician will precisely administer the fat into the chosen areas of the body, such as the face, breasts, or buttocks, to elevate volume and give you a more even, revitalized aesthetic.

You may need to stay at home for several weeks to recover from liposuction surgery, depending on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat removed. It's normal to see bruising and swelling for one or two weeks, and you should have the stitches taken out 7 – 10 days after surgery. The most important thing following liposuction is to allow your body time to recover and rest. When you decide to return to work after your surgery, you should do your best to take it easy. To build up your strength and stamina, try short walks and light workouts as approved by Dr. Altenberg. Remember that you may notice some improvements after six weeks, but it will take around 6 – 10 months before your new body contour and shape is complete.

BeautiFill liposuction at El Paso Men's & Women's Clinic in El Paso, TX is more than a cosmetic procedure; it's a strategic approach to fat reduction and body contouring. Here are the key benefits:

  • Leaves only minor, inconspicuous scars
  • Targets and removes fat from problem areas resistant to diet and exercise
  • Improves the balance and proportion of your physique
  • Capable of contouring multiple body areas in one procedure

Liposuction is a good procedure for patients who are at an ideal weight, but have stubborn areas of fat that cannot be lost with exercise and diet. It is important to remember that liposuction does not address loose skin. Liposuction is not a solution for weight loss. Women having liposuction should have no plans to become pregnant again as this may compromise the results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Altenberg will discuss what results you can expect following your treatment.

How much does liposuction cost?

The liposuction varies based on the technique selected and the amount of areas being addressed. Dr. Altenberg will create a custom treatment plan based on your needs and goals. He will also take into consideration your budget. When your plan is developed, estimated costs will be discussed. To make your cosmetic surgery affordable, El Paso Men's & Women's Clinic accepts several payment options, and we will help you find low-interest financing.

What about nonsurgical liposuction?

There are several nonsurgical options to reduce fat. Some of the most popular methods are CoolSculpting, Vanquish, UltraShape, Liposonix, and KYBELLA. Although some nonsurgical treatments may help reduce small amounts of fat, liposuction is still best for most patients. Liposuction surgery delivers more dramatic and consistent results. Ask Dr. Altenberg about nonsurgical lipo in your consultation. He will review the benefits of all your options and help you decide which is best for you.

What about cellulite and loose skin?

Surgical liposuction only addresses excess fat in the body. If you have loose skin, Dr. Altenberg may suggest combining liposuction with a lift surgery. Liposuction is often performed along with skin tightening surgery, such as a tummy tuck, thighplasty, or arm lift, to give you the best results. There are many nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatment options to correct cellulite, including Cellulaze, VelaShape, Venus Freeze, and VASER Shape. During your consultation, tell Dr. Altenberg about your concerns like cellulite and loose skin so your best treatment plan is developed.

Will I have scars?

Since a facelift is a surgery, incisions must be made and sutured. This will create scars, but Dr. Altenberg does his best to minimize their appearance. This includes making small, thin incisions in the natural folds of your body or in less visible areas. After your surgery, Dr. Altenberg or a member of his team will go over how to care for your incisions so they heal flat and fade.

Will my results last?

Before you have liposuction surgery, it is important to be prepared to maintain your results. Although liposuction reduces the amount of fat cells in an area, you can still lose and gain weight. Dr. Altenberg recommends that you be at or near a healthy weight prior to liposuction. Afterward, it's best to remain within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight. Pregnancy after liposuction will also impact your results; however, a second surgery, like a mommy makeover, can be performed to refresh your body.
