Liposuction

Liposuction can slim and contour even your most stubborn pockets of fat. And while there are many variations of the liposuction procedure, the key to excellent results is the skill of the person performing the procedure. Dr. Paul Gill is a double board-certified plastic surgeon who performs liposuction at The Gill Center in The Woodlands, TX, and has earned a reputation for creating attractive, natural-looking results.

How Is Liposuction Performed?

Dr. Gill uses a manual liposuction technique which has a long track record of safely producing excellent results. With years of experience performing liposuction, Dr. Gill customizes the procedure depending on the specific needs of his patients. The technique he uses, tumescent liposuction, involves making small incisions at the treatment site and then saturating the fatty tissue with a solution that includes lidocaine (an anesthetic) and epinephrine. The tissue swells and becomes firmer (tumescent), making it easier to break up and remove. Dr. Gill suctions fatty tissue using a cannula, a thin tube that he inserts and moves around to loosen the tissue.

Liposuction can target unwanted fat in virtually any area of the body, including the:

  • Neck, cheeks (buccal fat), and chin
  • Thighs, calves, and ankles
  • Upper arms, underarms, and chest
  • Abdomen and back
  • Buttocks, hips, and flanks

Depending on the treatment area, liposuction usually takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours. Procedures involving larger areas of fatty tissue include the use of a general anesthetic and may require patients to remain in the hospital overnight. A local anesthetic is used for smaller treatment areas and patients return home the day of their procedures.

What Is Recovery Like After Liposuction?

Healing after liposuction varies depending on the area or areas treated, but most liposuction patients are able to return to work and non-strenuous activities within a day or two. The amount of time you need to take off work will depend on the extent of the surgery but getting plenty of rest is important for all patients. It’s also common to combine liposuction with other procedures, such as tummy tuck surgery, that can also impact the recovery process. You can expect some bruising and swelling for between 1 and 2 weeks. Wearing a compression garment helps with this. You should walk around your house every day but otherwise limit your activities until cleared by Dr. Gill.

Reviews

“Hands down the best experience! I went to multiple consultations before deciding which doctor I wanted to go with for a breast augmentation, and after I visited Dr. Paul Gill, I knew he was the doctor I would choose! He is very knowledgeable and professional, and his staff is so friendly and so sweet.”

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

Liposuction in the Houston area can cost from $2,000 to $8,000 or more. As you might guess, the cost of liposuction depends in part on the area or areas treated. We provide a detailed price quote after you consult with Dr. Gill. Included in the cost of liposuction are fees for the doctor and an anesthesiologist, if necessary, any medications that are prescribed, compression garments, and other associated costs. Even though the price is a factor for most patients, it shouldn’t be the primary consideration. Dr. Gill often performs revision surgery for women and men who had liposuction performed by physicians who weren’t board-certified plastic surgeons, which is why we tell patients that the least expensive liposuction procedure is the first one done right.

Women and men considering liposuction travel from Houston and other areas surrounding The Woodlands to have Dr. Gill perform their procedures.
