What you can expect on the day of your liposuction procedure in Houston Texas
If you are undergoing liposuction under general anesthesia, on the day of your liposuction procedure in Houston, Texas, your TOPS plastic surgeon will meet you in the preoperative area to go over any last minute questions or concerns you may have. Your plastic surgeon may make some preoperative markings and will perform extensive checks with careful attention to detail, ensuring high quality care and safety. If you are undergoing general anesthesia, you will meet the anesthesiologist and their team, as well as the members of our plastics surgery operative team.
During your cosmetic surgery, our Houston plastic surgeons pay meticulous attention to detail and work as a team to ensure a great result with a focus on safety and quality. Your family will be updated of your status periodically and will be able to talk with the plastic surgeon one-on-one after your chin augmentation procedure is completed. The timing of the liposuction procedure varies greatly depend on the areas and extent of liposuction being performed. Please keep in mind that the cosmetic procedure may take a little longer for the surgical set up and for our patients to fully recover in the post operative care unit.
If liposuction is being performed in the office under local anesthesia, you will be met by one of the members of our Houston Museum District TOPS team. You will be brought back to the procedure room and made comfortable prior to your liposuction procedure. The plastic surgeon will then inject a numbing medication that will keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. The area to be liposuctioned will then be prepped and the area and instruments will be kept sterile throughout the procedure. Careful attention is taken to safety and the highest level of care, just as there would be in the operating room. Liposuction under local anesthesia in our Houston office is limited to small areas that do not require aggressive liposuction.
