Liposuction is used to remove fatty deposits via tiny incisions placed in discreet areas of your body to sculpt out difficult to remove areas of fat not responding to diet or exercise. There are several varieties of liposuction used depending upon your tissue characteristics and goals you wish to achieve. Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. R. Lee Steely uses liposuction alone or in combination with other body contouring techniques such as Tummy Tuck or abdominoplasty to bring your contour into proportion.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Many patients not only need Liposuction, but also a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty which allows removal of excess skin as well as tightening of the abdominal wall. Several types of tummy tucks are available depending upon your tissues and the goals you are trying to achieve.

Fat grafting is a way to enhance the volume of the buttocks and breasts. It can also be used to restore volume to the backs of the hands and the face. This process involves removal of stubborn excess fat from another area using liposuction. The fat is purified and then carefully injected into the new area.
