What to Expect

Before, During, and After Your Liposuction in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation.

Prior to your liposuction Houston patients will first meet with a physician for a one-on-one consultation. We take the time to get to know you—your medical history, long-term health and aesthetic goals, and more.

2. Review Your Treatment Plan.

Houston Liposuction experts, Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks, collaborate on every patient case to best advise you on the best liposuction option: ultrasound-assisted liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction, power-assisted liposuction, or liposuction using Renuvion technology. We build a highly personalized treatment plan that may also non-surgical procedures (such as Emsculpt NEO) to achieve the best possible results.

3. Make Your Decision.

At Heights Plastic Surgery, our mission is to give you all of the information you need to decide what will work best for your desires, timeline, and budget. After we make recommendations, we give you the space and time to make your own decision.

4. Schedule Your Liposuction.

We will schedule your liposuction—an outpatient procedure performed in our private, on-site surgery center—for a day and time that works best for you. You'll want to factor in about 1 to 2 weeks of downtime from everyday activities and work after your procedure.

5. Arrive for Surgery.

We will provide you with all the ways you can best prepare for the procedure well in advance of your liposuction in Houston. When you arrive, we will escort you to our state-of-the-art surgical suite, and review our process in detail once more.

6. Getting Your Liposuction.

Your highly skilled surgeon will be in the operating room from start to finish, executing every detail of your agreed-upon liposuction plan for removing your unwanted fat. Make sure you plan to have a plan for getting home after your procedure, as you will not be able to drive yourself.

7. Follow Up.

When you book your liposuction in Houston at Heights Plastic Surgery, we will also book you for follow-up visits to meet with your surgeon to monitor the area. This important step ensures you are healing properly, safely, and efficiently.
