Liposuction in Houston, TX
Sculpt and Contour Your Body with Micro Tumescent Liposuction
Liposuction is a surgical procedure for both women and men who are looking to remove fat and contour their body. Liposuction is ideal for patients who are otherwise healthy but simply can’t seem to lose fat in specific body areas through diet and exercise.
At Houston Lipo Center, we specialize in micro tumescent liposuction, which uses smaller, less invasive “microcannulas” – resulting in less trauma and a faster recovery vs traditional liposuction. All liposuction procedures performed at Houston Lipo Center use the tumescent method in combination with local anesthesia for a safe, minimally invasive approach.Learn More

Wanting to look your best isn’t gender-specific. Here at Houston Lipo Center, we treat male and female patients. We offer specific procedures tailored towards men, such as the male chest, a common treatment for pseudo-gynecomastia.Read More
The doctor listened to all of my concerns and delivered on making me look exactly how I always envisioned myself to be. The team went above and beyond in taking care of me.
I am EXTREMELY happy with my results. From the Doctor to all the Office Staff were amazingly friendly and down to Earth. The doctor was very professional and explained the procedure and after care very thoroughly.
The outstanding Smart Lipo results I received were beyond compare. Any of my concerns at first were to put to rest by the doctor and staff. The doctor himself was so professional and calming.
I was nervous, but the staff and doctor were great as far as taking care of me. I’ve been super pleased with the results and my clothes fit so much better. I would highly recommend Houston Liposuction Center.

Micro Tumescent Liposuction, also referred to as “microcannula” liposuction, is the chosen technique for liposuction performed at Houston Lipo Center. We choose to use this technique because it is known to be the least invasive and safest form of liposuction and can be done using only local anesthetic. Microcannulas are liposuction cannulas that are 3.0 mm in diameter or less. These cannulas extract fat with less damage to the surrounding tissues, resulting in smoother results and a faster recovery. Also, performing liposuction under local anesthesia, eliminates the risks of general anesthesia and increases overall safety.Read More
Yes. At Houston Lipo Center, we do offer laser assisted liposuction, however, use of a laser may not be recommended for every case. There are a variety of brand names associated with laser liposuction, including SmartLipo, CoolLipo, and LipoLite. Each of these has slightly different features, but all have a similar approach. As always, the skill of your surgeon matters more than the tools they use. A particular brand name does not always guarantee a particular result.Read More
The best way to know for sure is to schedule a consultation. There are many cases where a tummy tuck may be recommended, but there is a fair amount of gray area and ultimately it will depend on your goals. In most cases, the deciding factor is the amount of loose skin, though there are other cases like a diastasis recti where liposuction may not be recommended, as it won’t address the underlying problem.Read More
The short answer is yes. Liposuction permanently removes fat cells from your body. Those fat cells don’t come back. However, that doesn’t mean that you are immune to weight gain and can eat whatever you want. You can still gain weight after a procedure – but fat does not “re-generate.”Read More
Liposuction generally requires two days off work (the day of the procedure and the day after). After that, there is a two-week period with no heavy exercise. Generally, after two weeks most patients can return to their normal activities. Some swelling may persist as part of the body’s natural healing process and can take up to 6 months for final results.Read More
Weight loss isn’t the main goal of liposuction and should never be used as a replacement for diet and exercise. Fat is not very dense compared to muscle, so the amount of weight lost is slight and can be up to five pounds in extreme cases.Read More
All procedures done at Houston Lipo Center are performed under local anesthetic. Using only local anesthetic, eliminates the need for general anesthesia. Many patients are simply scared of “going under”, as they know that there are additional risks associated with general anesthesia (not to mention additional costs). Being awake (and mildly sedated) during the procedure also requires that surgeons use smaller cannulas rather than the larger cannulas that are used during traditional liposuction. This results in smaller incisions, less trauma and post-op swelling, and a faster recovery. While there are some limits to the number of areas that can be done under local anesthesia, the benefits outweigh the limitations for most patients.Read More
Houston Lipo Center uses microcannulas for a minimally invasive approach to reduce the risk and keep visible scarring to a minimum. Some patients may still see small freckle-like scars as a result of the procedure that will fade over time. Discuss with your surgeon if you tend to develop raised (keloid) scars.Read More
