Do you have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to all the exercising and dieting you are doing?  Liposuction may be an answer for you to target your hard to treat, stubborn and unwanted areas of fat.

Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures that can target not only abdominal extra fat build-up, but also fat around the mid-section, thighs, arms, armpits. Liposuction is also preformed on the face to remove the double chin, and cheeks to remove the jowls. Liposuction can create a more contoured appearance by removing your “muffin top”, “love handles” or “saddle bags” and produce natural long lasting results as long as you maintain your weight.

Liposuction is not a means of weight loss, but is designed to help contour your body for a more desired defined and sculpted appearance. Liposuction may also be combined with several other cosmetic procedures to produce the best result. Contact our office to schedule your free consultation and learn how liposuction can help you achieve that hourglass sculpted body you’ve always wanted.


What to Expect During Your Lipo Consultation?

Dr. Bachilo will meet with you and discuss your concerns and goals. She will perform an evaluation and recommend whether liposuction is your best surgical option to produce the results you want. Dr. Bachilo may make recommendations for additional non-surgical or surgical procedures that will further enhance your results. Dr. Bachilo will go over the procedure details and explain any risks involved.

When you are ready to schedule your procedure, you will be given detailed pre-operative instructions. For your safety, you will be asked to stop smoking and stop taking any medications that increase bleeding.  It is important to us that you are comfortable with your decision and if you have any questions, please make sure to ask your doctor or one of the clinic staff prior to your surgery.


How Is Liposuction Procedure Performed?

Liposuction may be performed in an outpatient surgical center or a clinic setting using local or general anesthesia. The best setting and the length of the operation will depend on the amount of fat to be removed and number of body areas addressed. For very large volume liposuction, overnight stay at the hospital is usually recommended for close patient monitoring.

Liposuction requires only several small incisions about a quarter of an inch strategically placed to access the fat pockets. Special fluid containing local anesthetic and adrenaline is infused into the fat pockets prior to fat removal. A small hollow cylinder with openings, or a liposuction cannula, is used to loosen and then remove the fat deposits with suction tubing.

During the removal of the fat in order to achieve best cosmetic result, Dr. Bachilo continuously monitors your body contour. When the desired shape and contour is reached, skin incisions are closed with absorbable sutures. Dressings and surgical garments are applied to treated body areas.


What to Expect During Lipo Recovery?

You will be given detailed post-operative instructions after your procedure. It is normal to experience some swelling, bruising and drainage from the incision sites. If these are excessive, please make sure to notify your surgeon. Pain is minimal and will be controlled with prescription medication given to you by Dr. Bachilo. You will be instructed to wear your compression garments continuously in order to reduce swelling and produce best results. You should be able to return to work in just a few days to a week after your surgery.


What Results Can I Expect After Liposuction?

Liposuction results will vary and will depend on your age, your skin elasticity and your starting appearance. It is important to have realistic expectations and understand what this procedure can and cannot deliver.  You will see improvement in your body contour immediately, and as bruising and swelling decrease you will see your final result. It may take 2-3 month before you can enjoy your best shape.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures to remove stubborn fat pockets and to contour the body.

Is liposuction a weight loss treatment?

Liposuction is not a means for weight loss, but it helps to improve and shape the body. Ideal candidate is someone who is looking to remove stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to weight loss and exercise in order to improve body shape.

Will Liposuction help me to lose weight?

No. While Liposuction is a fat-reduction treatment, it is not a weight-loss treatment. Liposuction may remove pockets of excess fat, helping to produce a slimmer contour and physique, but it will not remove substantial amounts of fat.  You must be close to your ideal weight in order to be a good candidate for Liposuction.

Will liposuction affect my ability to become pregnant in the future?

No, the procedure will not affect your ability to carry a healthy pregnancy; however, it may be advisable to postpone the procedure until after you have finished having your children, because future weight fluctuations and hormonal changes may affect the outcome of your Liposuction treatment.

How much does liposuction cost in the Houston area?

Because liposuction is such a versatile procedure that may be used in such a variety of ways, naturally, the price of the procedure will vary between patients. Many factors will affect pricing, such as the size of the treatment area. The average cost of an affordable liposuction may run between $2,000 and $5000. If your situation is more complex, a low cost liposuction might not be an available option. You can spend more than $8,000, depending on the area(s) being treated. If you need a cheap liposuction and other treatments at the same time, you may save money as well as time by combining liposuction with other cosmetic procedures in a single treatment session.

Can liposuction be used to transfer fat from one area of the body to another?

Yes. That procedure is called fat grafting or a fat transfer procedure. During your intake consultation with Dr. Bachilo, mention that you’d like to use the fat extracted during liposuction to enhance another area of your face or body.

What type of anesthesia is used during a Liposuction procedure?

Liposuction can be performed using a topical numbing agent or some form of local anesthesia with sedation in order to help patients relax and diminish any possibility of discomfort during the procedure. If large volume liposuction is performed or is combined with other procedures, general anesthesia is recommended.

How long do the results of liposuction last?

Once fat cells are removed from the treatment area, they are gone for good. You may still gain weight in the area, because the remaining fat cells in the area may become enlarged, but typically the results of liposuction are considered permanent.

What parts of the body can be treated with liposuction?

Liposuction is effective at extracting excess fat from may different areas of the face and body, including the chin, neck, torso, chest, tummy, back, flanks, hips, thighs, breast, and buttocks.

Male Liposuction

Surgery Overview
  • AnesthesiaGeneral
  • Surgery LengthVaries
  • Recovery Time2 Weeks

Male liposuction is widely gaining popularity with men who want to restore a more contoured, youthful appearance and get rid of stubborn fatty deposits, for a leaner physique.  Male liposuction is one of the many procedures offered by Dr. Olga Bachilo at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa for men in the Houston, Texas area.  Dr. Bachilo is a talented plastic surgeon and leading provider of surgical and non-surgical treatments for male and female patients.


What Is Male Lipo?

Liposuction (also known as liposculpture or lipoplasty) is a widely used surgical cosmetic procedure that contours the body by extracting unwanted fat from key problem areas. Men’s bodies tend to store fatty deposits in certain specific areas, such as the “love handles” around the flanks, as well as excess fatty tissue in the chest, belly, and buttocks. Liposuction may be used to treat any of these areas, and even the thighs, underarms, and upper arms or shoulders, to increase muscular definition in these areas. Liposuction suctions away fatty deposits that may persist in spite of a healthy diet and physical exercise.  Liposuction may also be performed together with other enhancement procedures, such as male breast reduction (gynecomastia) or male tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery.


Benefits of Male Liposuction

Liposuction is a safe, simple, and effective procedure that enhances body contour and produces a leaner and more defined physique by removing excess fat from stubborn areas where pockets of fat have accumulated.  Male liposuction can produce the lean and toned body contour you want, with healthy muscular definition in the chest, stomach, waistline, and buttocks, as well as the arms and thighs. Liposuction requires only a few days of recovery, and provides a fast and easy way to get the trim body of your dreams.


Who Should Consider Male Liposuction?

While liposuction is considered suitable and safe for most adult men, it may not be the perfect solution for every male patient.  For example, liposuction alone would not be the treatment of choice for men who are extremely obese or those who have undergone severe weight loss and have sagging skin remaining around the torso. Stretch marks and cellulite are also separate conditions that may require other procedures such as tummy tuck or other surgery.  Typically, liposuction may be right for you if you meet the following conditions:

  • You are in general good health with no contraindications for elective surgery.
  • You are within 30% of your ideal weight and maintain relatively good skin and muscle tone.
  • You are a non-smoker.
  • You maintain an active lifestyle and healthy diet.
  • Your body contouring expectations and goals are realistic.

How Male Liposuction Is Done

Male liposuction may take from 1 to 2 hours to complete. Dr. Bachilo performs liposuction regularly and uses a variety of techniques based on the unique and individual condition of each patient. The procedure starts with making tiny, inconspicuous incisions, then using a suction-based contouring and sculpting device to extract stubborn fat from areas where it accumulated like the “love handles,”  flanks, hips, “spare tire,” or waist, buttocks, thighs, chest, or “double chin.” Liposuction recovery is minimal, with patients typically resuming work and normal physical activities within a few days after their surgery.


Ab Etching

Abdominal etching is a procedure to remove extra fat from the abdominal area to improve the visibility of the “6-pack”.

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor
Megan Shea

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

She has been wonderful
Lindsey Coats

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable. I have asked a lot of her throughout both procedures that are difficult enough without me asking her to go above and beyond. She continues to deliver truly incredible results. - Google

Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
