What is liposuction? January 25, 2023 Liposuction is a popular surgical body contouring procedure that reshapes the body by removing excess fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Patients often opt to undergo liposuction alone; however, it may be done in conjunction with some of our patients’ other desired procedures, such as butt implants and breast augmentation to enhance their overall results. With more than 15 years of experience in the field, Dr. Bullocks and Dr. Cara Downey, one of the leading female plastic surgeons in Houston, Texas, specialize in advanced liposuction techniques. At Heights Plastic Surgery, our surgeons continuously craft successful and life-changing results in countless men and women every year.
