Liposuction

Liposuction

Dr. Kopchinski and his staff are the most professional people in the business. Dr. K takes his time with each potential client to fully explain any questions you have and make you feel comfortable about any procedure you are considering. Many other doctors tend to rush you or tell you your questions can be answered from their website. He is detail oriented in his work, and his results are, therefore, phenomenal! I trust Prestige Cosmetics to take care of me.

I had a tummy tuck by Dr. Kopchinski in February. The tummy tuck was great but I still had some fat left on the top of my abdomen. I was insecure about it so Dr. Kopchinski offered to address the situation with liposuction at no cost to me. It has now been over 2 weeks and the results are amazing. My abdomen and waist just keep getting and better every day. Now that I have been though the trenches of recovery, I am 100% happy with the results. Dr. Kopchinski did a GREAT job. I am so very thankful!!

Are You a Candidate for Liposuction?

Close to Your Ideal Weight

In general, good candidates for this procedure are within 30 percent of their ideal weight.

Muscle Tone and Skin Elasticity

A person's muscle tone and skin elasticity influence body contours once fat cells have been removed. Ideal patients have good muscle tone and skin elasticity.

Good Overall Health

During your consultation at our San Antonio practice, Dr. Kopchinski may inquire about your medical history to determine if any conditions or medications you are taking could complicate surgery or recovery.

Be Willing to Temporarily Quit Smoking

Because tobacco interferes with the healing process, non-smokers are the best candidates for surgery. However, those who are willing to at least temporarily quit can also undergo this cosmetic treatment.

Realistic Expectations

It is important for patients to understand that this procedure is not a weight loss treatment. Instead, it is a cosmetic procedure designed to provide a powerful complement to the results of a healthy lifestyle.

Common Treatment Areas

Modern liposuction can target specific areas of the body and provide attractive, natural-looking results. Some of the specific areas that plastic surgeons can target include the:

  • Lower abdomen
  • Hips
  • Flanks
  • Lower back
  • Chest
  • Buttocks
  • Inner or outer thighs
  • Under the chin
  • Arms

Dr. Kopchinski has performed thousands of liposuction procedures using most techniques and equipment. He has refined his technique and has a revision rate of less than one percent while removing as much fat as possible while maintaining natural-looking results.

What Affects Liposuction Cost? Financing Options Available 

It is important to note that no liposuction case is the same. We treat each patient with their cosmetic goals in mind in order to bring out their best features and complement their figure. The cost of liposuction depends on the technique selected, the type of anesthesia, and which areas are treated. For example, the arms will cost less than addressing the entire abdomen. Many patients choose to have liposuction on multiple areas at once to reduce overall healing time.

We can provide a custom quote after your initial consultation. Whether you choose to address just one area or combine liposuction with another procedure, our San Antonio, TX, practice is proud to offer several financing options. We work with third-party companies such as CareCredit, Prosper Healthcare Lending, and Alphaeon to make liposuction more affordable. Our staff is happy to help walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have.

The Liposuction Treatment Process

All surgical procedures are performed in an accredited medical facility at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital hospital in Alamo Heights, San Antonio, TX.

Local or General Anesthesia

This treatment is typically performed under general anesthesia. If only a small area is being treated, local anesthesia may be sufficient.
1

Tumescent Injections

A special solution is injected into the fatty areas to control blood loss and cause the fatty tissue to swell, making it easier to remove.
2

Small Incisions

Once general or local anesthesia has taken effect, our plastic surgeon will make a number of small incisions to gain access to unwanted excess fat.
3

Fat Removal

A tool called a cannula is then inserted through the small incisions to reach the fat cells directly and remove excess fat using gentle suction. This stage of liposuction really is an art form, and Dr. Kopchinski will remove precise amounts of fat to contour and sculpt the body.
4

Placement of Compression Bandages

Once the fat removal process is complete, our surgeon will wrap the treatment area with elastic bandages or place a compression garment to reduce swelling and conform the skin to the new body contours.

Liposuction Recovery
What to Expect

Immediately after Surgery

Following your outpatient procedure in San Antonio, you will be given detailed recovery instructions. You will return home to rest for the remainder of the day.

Side Effects

Side effects such as discomfort, bruising, swelling, and tingling or numbness at the incision site are all common after surgery. These typically peak about two days after surgery, then slowly subside over the next six weeks after the liposuction procedure.

Medications

Most patients are prescribed pain medication and antibiotics after undergoing surgery. It is important to take antibiotics as directed to reduce the risk of infection. We also recommend that patients take pain medication as directed for at least the first two days after surgery to maintain their comfort.

Returning to Work

Most patients feel well enough to return to work and most normal activities by a week or two after surgery. However, heavy lifting and activity should be avoided for several weeks, so patients may need to adjust their work schedule or duties while they recover.

Exercise

Patients should take light walks daily to prevent the formation of blood clots. However, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided for about six weeks after this cosmetic treatment.

Compression Garments

We may recommend that patients wear a compression garment for four to six weeks after the procedure to reduce swelling and improve post-surgical results.

Follow-Up Appointments

Follow-up appointments will be set up one week, one month, and three months after surgery.

Emergencies

Dr. Kopchinski provides his after-hours cell phone number so patients can reach him 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
