Even though we get patients in large numbers every day, unlike other large surgical practices, it is our aim at Aspira Plastic Surgery to offer personalized attention to each patient. Dr. Venkata Erella and his team spend considerable time with you to understand your concerns and aesthetic goals before they offer tailor-made solutions to help you achieve those goals. Dr. Erella is sought after for his vast experience and his compassion for every patient who walks into Aspira Plastic Surgery.

During your consultation, each procedure will be explained in detail to you so that you are aware of what can and cannot be achieved with the chosen procedure. This ensures that our patients from Pflugerville make an informed decision and are not anxious about the surgery and its results. From the time of consultation to your complete recovery, we will help you choose a safe procedure, heal well and enjoy your desired results.

One reason why patients schedule a consultation with Dr. Erella is to find a solution to the stubborn fat in certain areas of their body which does not give in to diet restrictions or exercise. We help you sculpt your body to the desired contours with Liposuction that is a comprehensive and effective treatment.

Understanding liposuction

Liposuction is a commonly opted invasive procedure for eliminating fatty deposits from your chest, lower body, upper arms and neck among other body areas. It can also be used in combination with other procedures to enhance body contours like during your facelift, breast reduction or tummy tuck. During your consultation, Dr. Erella will determine whether you will benefit from liposuction and the best technique to be adopted like the laser-assisted SmartLipo alternatives.

Are you a good candidate for liposuction?

A good candidate for liposuction is usually near their ideal weight and is only struggling with isolated fat deposits. It is important to understand that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure and cannot replace a healthy and active lifestyle. It also cannot get rid of cellulite. Just like any other surgical procedure, you must be in good health to be able to recover well from liposuction and have realistic expectations. The best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Erella.

What will be the procedure like?

Dr. Erella will perform your liposuction under local anesthesia; however, if other procedures are being performed in combination, then general anesthesia may be required. Liposuction requires short incisions to be made in the treatment area through which a thin cannula is inserted. A sweeping motion breaks up the unwanted fat which is then suctioned out of your body. Sutures will be used to then close your incisions.

How will be the recovery?

Every patient heals differently, and your recovery is also dependent on how extensive the procedure was. There will be some downtime while your incisions heal, and it is important that you follow all aftercare instructions given by Dr. Erella so that you avoid the risk of any complications. There might be drainage tubes and dressings to take care of, and you may have to wear a compression garment for some time. This helps with healing and to allow your skin to conform to the new contours. You may also be prescribed some antibiotics or pain killers if you feel any discomfort. Dr. Erella might ask you to avoid any strenuous activity for some days so that there is no stress on the incisions.

When you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle after your liposuction, your results will last longer and you will be able to enjoy your slimmer and toned appearance for years.
