Introduction to


When it comes to reshaping the body, Dr. Ahmad Ahmadi of Houston is a leading expert in liposuction. Liposuction surgery is one of the most popular fat-reduction cosmetic procedures available today, and it can help remove excess fat from areas that are difficult or impossible to slim down through diet and exercise alone. To learn about the benefits of liposuction and find out if you are a good candidate, please keep reading the information below!

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a surgical body contouring procedure that is a safe and effective way to reshape your body and remove unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. Dr. Ahamdi specializes in multiple solutions to perform liposuction, including high-definition liposuction techniques. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the area where the fat will be removed and then a cannula (tube) is inserted beneath the skin. The cannula is used to break up the fat deposits and suction them out of the body. This treatment can also be used to reduce size asymmetries between body parts, such as an uneven waist or different-sized thighs.

It’s important to note that Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and patients can gain weight after the surgery, so patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle to not gain any new excess fat or fatty tissue.

Some of the more common areas that are treated include:

  • Abdomen and waist
  • Back
  • Hips and Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Upper Arms
  • Neck & Chin (Double Chin)

Liposuction for Men

Liposuction is not just a cosmetic surgery for women to lose weight either; men can also benefit from this procedure. Men often use the traditional liposuction procedure to target common problem areas, such as their chest, abdomen, and love handles, resulting in these areas looking firmer and more toned. Men undergoing liposuction surgery may also experience an increase in their self-confidence and improved physical appearance. Dr. Ahmadi strives to help you lose some of your fat but still maintain a masculine figure.

What are the three types of Liposuction techniques?

Dr. Ahmadi offers three different types of liposuction procedures that can help patients achieve their desired results: Tumescent Liposuction, Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL), and Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAL).

  • Tumescent liposuction is the most common technique used and is what most people consider “traditional liposuction”. It involves injecting a solution of lidocaine and epinephrine, which reduces bleeding and helps to break down fat cells before they are suctioned out. The benefits include minimal blood loss, less downtime after surgery, and fewer risks associated with the procedure.
  • Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction is an advanced form of liposuction that uses ultrasound energy to liquefy fat cells for removal. This technique helps to reduce trauma to the surrounding tissues and allows for selective targeting of fat in areas like the chin and neck.
  • Laser-assisted liposuction is a relatively new technique that uses laser energy to heat and melt away stubborn fat deposits. This minimally invasive procedure can give patients more precise results with less downtime after surgery.

If you’re considering any of these procedures, Dr. Ahmadi will help you determine which technique is best for you. By consulting with him, you’ll be one step closer to achieving your desired body contours!

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

The benefits of Liposuction in Houston are numerous and include:

  • Improved body contour and shape
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Proportionate body silhouette
  • Removal of stubborn fat deposits
  • Reveals underlying muscle tone
  • Treatment is versatile

Please keep in mind that this procedure may leave you with some excess skin that can not be removed without surgery. Dr. Ahmadi will discuss your body type during your consultation and may recommend a Tummy Tuck or Body Lift to achieve a slimmer figure with no excess skin to worry about.

Who are the Best Candidates for Liposuction?

The best candidates for liposuction are those who are close to their ideal body weight and have good skin elasticity. If you have stubborn pockets of fat that diet and exercise alone can’t seem to get rid of, then you may be a good candidate for this procedure. It also helps to maintain realistic expectations and keep a positive attitude, be close to your targeted normal weight, and stay committed to keeping a healthy lifestyle with a proper and balanced diet, and exercise.

Please keep in mind that Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss surgery, but as a means to get rid of subcutaneous fat. Once you finish with your procedure, we encourage you to stay vigilant to maintain your final results.

What’s the first step for a


If you are looking into Liposuction in Houston, your first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ahmadi. During your appointment, you will meet with Dr. Ahmadi who will examine your body and determine the best course of action to help you achieve your body goals. You will be asked some questions regarding your medical and personal history. Please keep in mind that these questions are not meant to shame you, but to ensure that you’re a viable candidate and to avoid unnecessary risks during or after your surgery.

Once all of this information is collected, Dr. Ahmadi will create your surgical plan. If you agree with his plan, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help set up the date of your procedure. You will be provided with a list of instructions to follow before your surgery to make sure that it goes safely and smoothly.

What to Expect on the Day of Liposuction

On the day of your plastic surgery procedure, you will be asked to arrive at the office a few minutes before your scheduled appointment. Dr. Ahmadi and his team will prepare you for surgery by administering general or local anesthesia, however, general anesthesia is more popular for the surgery.

The surgeon will begin by making small incisions in the area where the fat is being removed. During a liposuction, Dr. Ahmad Ahmadi of Houston will make incisions in the skin near the area that is to be treated. Through these incisions, he will insert a hollow tube called a cannula into the fat layer under the skin. The cannula is connected to a vacuum device which then gently suctions out excess fat to contour the body. Depending on the patient’s needs, different types of Liposuction may be used such as tumescent, ultrasound, or power-assisted laser liposuction only.

The amount of fat removed is determined by the patient’s individual anatomy and desired outcome. The treated treatment area itself will then be carefully dressed with a sterile dressing to minimize bruising, bleeding, and swelling.

Dr. Ahmadi will then monitor the patient’s progress over the next few days to make sure that healing is progressing as expected. If necessary, he may also recommend compression garments or wraps to ensure optimal results and speed up recovery time.


Liposuction Recovery

After liposuction, your body needs time to heal and adjust. You will be able to return home that same day, but you will need to take this time to relax and let your body do its thing – heal. To help with the recovery process, Dr. Ahmadi advises his patients to:

  • Wear a compression garment for at least 1-2 weeks after surgery
  • Take prescribed medication as needed, following instructions carefully
  • Avoid strenuous activities such as exercise and heavy lifting for 4-6 weeks
  • Avoid soaking in a bath or swimming for at least 2-3 weeks
  • Follow a nutritious diet and drink plenty of water
  • Keep the incision area clean, dry, and free from infection
  • Make sure to rest adequately, allowing your body time to heal

How Much Does Liposuction Cost in Houston, TX?
