Learn More About Dr. Rodriguez's Expert Approach
From a plastic surgery standpoint, liposuction requires meticulous preoperative planning, surgical technique, and postoperative follow-up and care. Liposuction surgery should be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who is familiar with the sculpting techniques for liposuction that incorporate sound surgical principles and careful attention to detail. Surgeons should have hospital privileges that include the surgery that they are planning on performing.
Dr. Rodriguez can smooth out scarred, uneven, lumpy areas around previous traditional tumescent liposuction fat removal, tummy tuck surgery, and above C-section scars. Fat transfer, liposhifting, or fat transplant is used to fill in depressed areas and deep cellulite dents. Unlike traditional liposuction procedures, Dr. Rodriguez’ Advanced Liposuction Correction is an extremely effective, gentle and minimally invasive procedure that is performed with no general anesthesia!
Advanced Liposuction Correction employs FDA-approved devices, such as the ultrasonic liposuction Vaser Liposection device and the Smartlipo laser liposuction device and to permanently eliminate or smooth out undesirable pockets of body fat. Dr. Rodriguez uses smaller, streamlined instruments and state-of-the-art technology to virtually melt and eradicate fat cells below the surface, to subsequently facilitate their removal with thin delicate instruments. With the ultrasonic liposuction Vaser Liposection device, Dr Rodriguez can break through old liposuction scar tissue under the skin to remove the remaining trapped fat. Dr. Rodriguez’ Advanced Correction Liposuction is so gentle that multiple areas can be corrected in a single session at the doctor’s office, without risky general anesthesia and the added costs of the hospital or of an anesthesiologist. It is less invasive than traditional procedures and leaves skin less traumatized, healthier, and smoother. Dr. Rodriguez precisely applies the heat used to melt the fat directly to the underside (dermis) of the overlying skin to increase collagen production, yielding a tighter look in the months that follow.
Advanced Wide Awake Lipo Correction uses local anesthesia and requires absolutely no stitches because the incisions are so tiny. Pain and recovery time is drastically reduced from the eight to ten weeks often associated with traditional liposuction. In most cases, with Advanced Correction Lipo you can expect only two to four days of downtime, followed by only seven to ten days of wearing compression garments for support. There is minimal pain, minimal swelling and little bruising because there is less trauma. You will also see results much quicker than you would with traditional lipo, even as soon as a week after the procedure. Once fat cells in the treated area are eliminated, they can never regenerate and return. The end result is a trimmer and sleeker body with a beautifully proportioned and balanced silhouette.
Advanced Lipo can be used on just about any area of the body including:
Rubbing inner thighs
Saggy stomach and post-baby pooch
Back (including bra strap area
Gynecomastia (man boobs)
"Dog ears" at the end of tummy tuck scars
Axillary (armpit) fat pads
And Much More!
Cellulite Treatment, Houston
In addition to correcting the unevenness left behind by traditional liposuction, Dr. Rodriguez also offers cellulite Vaser treatment, a procedure which can do more to reduce the appearance of cellulite than any amount of diet and exercise, or even external cellulite laser treatments. The Rodriguez Difference: The big difference is that Dr. Rodriguez uses ultrasonic energy under the skin to “melt” (emulsify) the lumpy fat deposits and simultaneously heat the collagen in the skin to get a tighter, soother, firmer look on top. This minimally invasive approach to cellulite reduction offers stunning results and minimal discomfort and downtime.
