Liposuction at my Dallas practice is typically an enhancement to the Mommy Makeover procedure, used to fine-tune the figure by removing isolated areas of unwanted fat. For most of the Mommy Makeover patients who visit Dr. Michael Bogdan for liposuction at his offices in Dallas and Southlake, the procedure is more appropriate in regions that were not directly affected by childbearing such as the flanks (love handles).
Liposuction, also called suction assisted lipectomy, is the removal of excess fat from resistant areas of the body. The procedure relies on good overlying skin elasticity to result in a pleasing result with smooth contour. Dr. Bogdan offers many advanced liposuction techniques, including power assisted (PAL) and ultrasonic (UAL) liposuction for Dallas and Fort Worth area moms.
As childbearing generally results in poor skin quality on the lower abdomen with stretch marks and laxity, abdominal liposuction is rarely a component of a Mommy Makeover. There are occasional instances, such as when a young mom has had only 1 or 2 children, where abdominal liposuction can be used alone to improve the appearance of the tummy.
Unlike the abdomen, the flanks are often not as affected by the stress of childbearing, and the skin here typically retains its elastic properties. As such, liposuction can effectively be used to contour the love handles either in isolation, or in conjunction with a tummy tuck in Dallas, TX. An added benefit of combining the procedure with a standard tummy tuck is that the removal of lower abdominal skin increases the tension along the flank region. This in turn improves the results of flank liposuction.
