What is Liposuction?
Liposuction — also known as lipo, lipoplasty or suction lipectomy — is a common form of surgery performed by Dr. David M. Turner at his Austin, TX, practice. Lipo attracts Texas men and women of all ages, offering patients the chance to refine areas that need extra attention. The results of Dr. Turner's expert liposuction have improved the appearance of hundreds of areas residents from Austin, San Marcos, Round Rock and beyond.
The key to lipo is that it breaks up unwanted, stubborn areas of fat and then gently suctions these fat cells from your body. Typically performed on patients who are within a few pounds of their ideal weight, lipoplasty can provide contour with little downtime.
How is Liposuction Performed?
In Austin, lipo with Dr. Turner usually takes about two hours and is performed under general anesthetic. However, local or regional anesthetic can be used if only a very small area is being treated.
There are two layers of subcutaneous fat: deep and superficial. During liposuction, Dr. Turner makes a tiny incision and inserts a hollow, stainless-steel tube (called a cannula) into the deep fat layer. Working on this layer is safer than working on the superficial layer because there is less risk of injuring the skin.
In a typical lipo procedure, Dr. Turner will push and pull the tube through the fat layer (a new technique, power liposuction, automates the movement). As the cannula moves, it breaks up fat cells, and a vacuum pump or syringe removes the fat with suction.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

What is the Recovery Process for Liposuction?
Lipoplasty may cause some discomfort or bruising, but this will respond well to normal pain medication. Although recovery times can vary, you should be able to return to normal activity very soon after your liposuction in Austin. Most of our lipo patients go back to work within three weeks of the operation.
