Our San Antonio physicians offer liposuction to remove unwanted pockets of fat from various areas of the body that have not responded to diet and exercise. Common locations for liposuction include the buttocks, tummy, thighs, hips, breasts, and chin. The procedure is performed at one of our San Antonio offices and involves a narrow tube called a cannula, which is inserted into the fat pocket to remove excess fat and tissue from the area. Recovery after liposuction is minimal. Our San Antonio doctors are ready to answer questions from area residents of Canyon Lake, Live Oak and Universal City regarding the benefits of liposuction.
