Because there is such variety in what constitutes body contouring, Dr. Robert Whitfield recommends sitting down for a consultation with him to discuss the specific issues or areas you would like to address through body contouring.
Body contouring with liposuction under local anesthesia can be great for smaller, isolated areas of fat, such as the love handles or bra line. For patients who want to re-contour the entire torso, Dr. Whitfield prefers to perform the procedure under general anesthesia. With this control, Dr. Whitfield can beautifully re-sculpt the waist, abdomen, and flanks.
Dr. Whitfield can also incorporate other procedures to maximize the effectiveness of your Austin liposuction treatment. Combining lipo and BodyTite (or lipo and noninvasive treatments like EVOLVE) can improve skin tightening after liposuction and dramatically increase results. These procedures are done simultaneously with liposuction to maximize the combined effect and contour the desired area to your specifications. Dr. Whitfield recommends these additions whenever possible because of the safety of the procedures and the effectiveness of their results.
