Liposuction in Dallas, TX
The Retreat Restorative & Aesthetics specializes in surgical and non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments for men and women in Rockwall, Heath, Dallas, Plano, and the nearby areas of Texas, and the nearby areas of Texas. Our radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) removes areas of unwanted fat while tightening skin to restore natural contours on the body.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a technique that Dr. Baker recommends for removing pockets of stubborn fat from troublesome areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and flanks. A small tube is inserted through a freckle sized hole and fat is removed without any cutting of your skin. RFAL is a complementary technique that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin while melting fat so it can be suctioned out of the area with less tissue trauma compared to other techniques. This not only reduces your downtime, but also allows for more precise contouring of the area. Dr. Baker discusses suitability and applicability to your unique case at your consultation. A highly successful algorithm is used to determine what fat should be removed, providing additional peace of mind throughout the process.

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
Lipo is an ideal procedure for men and women who have areas of stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Best results are achieved when patients are within 25 pounds of their ideal weight, but liposuction can improve a wide range of body types. Post-pregnancy, Dr. Baker suggests giving your body 6 months after delivery to recover, but you are able to have a procedure within 3 months of delivery, with some limitations. Dr. Baker may also recommend that you wait until after you are done having children before having a lipo procedure.
How is Liposuction Performed?
RFAL is a minimally invasive treatment that requires only small entry points to access the subcutaneous fat layer. After making each opening, Dr. Baker inserts a cannula, which is a thin tube used for administering the RF energy and/or suctioning out the fat. You do not need to be under general anesthesia for any procedure performed at The Retreat and your comfort is always our top priority. You will need a driver after your procedure as you will receive some sedation similar to a dental or GI procedure.
What is Recovery Like After Liposuction?
Liposuction post-op requires significantly less downtime and recovery than invasive surgical procedures. Expect to have swelling, tenderness, and bruising, but minimal interruption to your normal activities. Depending on the size of the area, healing can take several weeks or longer. Dr. Baker explains your liposuction post op care during the consultation, as well as prior to your returning home after the treatment.
How Long Do the Results of Liposuction Last?
The results that you see in liposuction before and after pics show the outcomes of fat removal. The procedure removes fat that you have now and your lifestyle, aging process, and genetics are the contributing factors that determine how long the results will last. Living a healthy, active lifestyle is the best way to maintain the results seen in liposuction before and after thighs, abdomen, arms, and other pictures.
