Will Liposuction Give Me a Bikini Body Before Summer?

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


Men and women work hard to get bikini body ready before summer. So, do you still struggle with small fat pockets on your abdomen, hips, and thighs? No matter how much you eat well and exercise, fat can accumulate in these hard-to-treat areas and more. Morales Plastic Surgery is proud to offer liposuction, a cutting-edge fat removal surgery in Houston, TX. We’ll help define your curves for the perfect beach-ready look.

The basics of body contouring with liposuction

Even small fat pockets can make us feel frustrated or embarrassed about our figure. Genetics or other factors make it impossible to lose fat in targeted areas, such as your stomach or thighs. If you like spending time by the pool, it may be challenging to wear bikinis, one-pieces, and active swimwear. If you feel uncomfortable in a bathing suit due to recent pregnancy or weight loss, liposuction is a safe way to boost your appearance without going into major body contouring surgery in Houston, TX.

How we remove stubborn fat

Liposuction treats mild to moderate fat in different areas of the body. It can give you a slimmer-looking physique by removing excess fat cells. Morales Plastic Surgery uses an instrument called a cannula to disrupt the stubborn fat. We may also use a saline and lidocaine solution to make the process easier. After undergoing a brief recovery period, patients enjoy a toned look.

Liposuction should only be done by a board-certified plastic surgeon. When meeting with Dr. Morales, we can explain how the process works after learning about your goals. Our clinic has performed countless procedures and can show you before and after photos so you know what you can expect. We can also discuss what kind of side effects to expect.

Areas we treat with liposuction

Below, you can review some of the most popular ways our patients use liposuction to get bikini body ready:

  • Inner and outer thighs: Bulky thighs can make you appear disproportionate or heavy. Women with this problem area might not like the way they look in bikini bottoms. Liposuction can treat your inner and outer thighs so you can slim down your bottom half to make your body more proportionate.

  • Love handles: Extra pockets of fat around the waist are more commonly known as love handles. These areas don’t traditionally respond to diet and exercise.

  • Legs: Even if you’re not overweight, some fat deposits can make your legs look unflattering. We can apply liposuction techniques on the legs and around the knees for a thinner appearance.

  • Arms: Women with excess fat in their upper arms might not like how they look in a bikini top. Liposuction can make your arms firmer, so they don’t distract from your overall silhouette.

  • Abdomen: The belly is the most common problem area people face. Stomach fat is especially challenging to lose after pregnancy. Our body contouring techniques can help you lose that last bit of bulge so you can enjoy going to the beach in style.
