Liposuction Correction and Repair

Liposuction has been heralded as the weapon of choice in the battle of the bulge since its introduction in the U.S. in the early 1980s. And just like every other technology through the years, liposuction has advanced and evolved.

On this page you’ll discover the various types of liposuction available at Rodriguez Rejuvenation – from traditional liposuction to the cutting edge technology of SmartLipo, Vaser Lipo, Mesotherapy and Lipodissolve. By learning these types of liposuction you will be able to make a more informed decision as to which liposuction procedure will best fit your specific needs.

Traditional Liposuction in Houston

Traditional liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that literally vacuums away fat deposits from underneath the skin by way of suction. A cannula, which serves as a suction probe, is inserted through an incision into the deep fat layer of the problem area. Using a back and forth motion, the doctor moves the cannula through the fat breaking up the fat cells. A vacuum pump then sucks the fat away.

Traditional liposuction is best suited for patients who have larger areas of fat to get rid of. Since this liposuction technique is a surgical procedure it does require general anesthesia. The associated recovery time can last from eight to ten weeks so some adjustment in work and lifestyle will be necessary. Compression garments are worn after the procedure to reduce bleeding and minimize swelling. Some degree of bruising is normal with liposuction but it usually goes away in about a week.

See our other three alternatives and learn which one is right for you:

Vaser Lipo

Vaser Lipo is another less invasive technique that uses ultrasounds inset of lasers.

Smart Lipo

A less invasive and traumatic alternative to traditional Liposuction.


This procedure is ideal for people who are seeking a totally non-surgical option.
