Liposuction Q&A

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes unwanted fat from various areas of the body to improve shape and contours. Aesthetic experts use many tools when performing liposuction. 

At El Paso Women’s Clinic, the team uses BeautiFill, a laser liposuction device that allows them to remove unwanted fat, process the fat, and inject it into another area of the body. BeautiFill is an innovative fat-transfer device. 

Am I a candidate for liposuction?

The team at El Paso Women’s Clinic conducts a thorough evaluation to determine if you’re a candidate for liposuction. Though the procedure removes excess body fat, it’s not a weight loss procedure.

The ideal candidate for liposuction is a person who’s close to or at their desired body weight, but has stubborn pockets of fat that fail to respond to diet and exercise. The team can remove unwanted fat from:

  • Under the chin
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks

Liposuction with BeautiFill is an outpatient procedure that the team performs using a local anesthetic so you’re awake for the procedure. 

What happens during liposuction?

Liposuction at El Paso Women’s Clinic takes about 30 minutes. After you change into your procedure gown, the team has you lie on the treatment table. They clean the area of the body undergoing liposuction and inject a local anesthetic.

They insert the BeautiFill laser device through a small tube under your skin. The heat from the laser melts the fat and the tube gently suctions it out. The liposuction device processes the fat, which the team may use to treat other areas of your body to improve contours.

The team monitors you at the office following your liposuction and then sends you home.

When can I expect to see results from liposuction?

You may see results from your liposuction at El Paso Women’s Clinic right away. But you can expect some swelling at the area of treatment and final results may take a week or more*. 

There’s little downtime following liposuction with BeautiFill, but you can resume most of your usual activities the day after treatment. The team at El Paso Women’s Clinic schedules follow-up visits to monitor your healing.

Results are permanent. However, weight gain may change your results. El Paso Women’s Clinic offers a weight management program that can help you maintain your new shape.
