Finding a Skilled San Antonio Liposuction Surgeon

One of the most commonly requested plastic surgery procedures is liposuction, also referred to as lipoplasty. Since numerous doctors offer this procedure, it is important to carefully research your intended San Antonio liposuction specialist's credentials and surgical record. While no surgery is completely risk-free, selecting a board-certified San Antonio plastic surgery specialist will significantly decrease the risk of complications. It is also important for potential San Antonio patients to realize that liposuction procedures, such as Lipo-dissolve, are not designed as weight loss treatments. While skillfully performed liposuction will remove fat from certain body areas, this procedure is not intended for removal of massive amounts of fatty tissue. Patients who are significantly overweight should first consult an experienced San Antonio weight loss surgery specialist who can help them lose weight by performing a bariatric surgery procedure such as gastric bypass. After the process of weight loss is complete, many patients elect to undergo a comprehensive body contouring surgery to improve the appearance of their lower body.
