LipoTuck™ In Houston


Excellence in Body Contouring


At Avante Plastic Surgery, we humbly believe that LipoTuck™ is the gold standard in body contouring not only in Houston | Sugar Land but worldwide; anything else is just an approximation. LipoTuck™ differs from the traditional tummy tuck in that it also incorporates significant liposuction to the abdomen, hips, love handles, back, pubis, and axilla.

In one procedure, we can remove excess skin, tighten abdominal muscles, contour your upper abdomen, and reduce waist and bra rolls. LipoTuck™ includes all tummy tuck benefits plus much more!

What to Expect on the Day of LipoTuck™

Dr. Ahmadi performs all surgeries at Sweetwater Surgery Center, a QuadA-certified outpatient surgical center.

LipoTuck™ takes longer to perform than a traditional abdominoplasty. The additional time is spent on contouring the body and doing liposuction. Dr. Ahmadi will make an incision around the belly button to release it from the surrounding skin. Next, the skin from the top of the belly button gets pulled down over the belly button to the pubic area. A new hole will be made, and the belly button gets pulled through. Of course, there is more to it than that. Dr. Ahmadi’s belly buttons are renowned for their natural appearance.

Typically Lipotuck™ lasts between 4-6 hours, depending on each patient and the total number of liposuction areas.


LipoTuck™ Recovery

The recovery is not longer than a traditional tuck. However, most patients report returning to their lives faster than friends who have had a tuck elsewhere. This is because of our carefully planned and aggressive recovery protocol. The fact that no drains are used in a LipoTuck™ significantly helps the recovery process.  

We recommend having someone able to drive you home after surgery and you will need somebody to take care of you for five days after surgery. Usually, patients can drive a week or two after their surgery and return to a desk job 10-14 days after surgery with lifting precautions. 

You cannot lift, pull, or push anything more than five lbs for six weeks post-surgery. Patients can usually drive ten days after surgery. Of course, everyone heals differently. 

After your LipoTuck™, your belly button will be small and attractive, and after recovery, it will look very natural. Typically the pubic area will be lifted and liposuctioned during LipoTuck™, so you won’t have to worry about any bulging from excess skin or fat.

How Much Does LipoTuck™ Cost in Houston, TX?

The cost of LipoTuck™ in Houston will vary on a number of factors. You may contact us to receive an approximate cost. The price covers anesthesia, facility, surgery fees, and routine follow-ups.
