Eliminate stubborn body fat with liposuction.

Liposuction in Corpus Christi, TX

As you age, some weight fluctuation is inevitable, no matter how much you diet and exercise. Stressful lives combined with genetics and pregnancies are a recipe for trouble when it comes to unwanted fat. These fat deposits are extremely difficult—if not impossible—to get rid of with exercise and diet alone.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that improves body contours by suctioning away unwanted fat cells. Dr. Vijay offers liposuction to his Corpus Christi patients.

What Can Be Achieved With Liposuction?

Elimination of a Stomach Pooch

Elimination of a Stomach Pooch

Fat collects on the lower abdomen with age, pregnancy and weight fluctuations. This pocket, or pooch, is challenging to reduce—no matter how hard you try. Liposuction removes unwanted fat from the abdomen for a slimmer and more toned physique. This is ideal for patients with good skin elasticity.

In addition to developing fat on the abdomen, fat commonly develops on the hips after pregnancy. This obscures the contour of the waist and can affect the way that clothes fit. Liposuction trims and sculpts your entire midsection to provide you with a slimmer silhouette and desirable hourglass figure.

Excess fat deposits are not only delegated to the midsection. Fat can develop anywhere on the body, and this fat can be resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction removes unwanted fat from the buttocks, thighs, chest, arms and under the neck so that you can achieve a sculpted, athletic contour.

How Is Liposuction Performed?


Your consultation with Dr. Vijay at his Corpus Christi office is an essential part of your liposuction treatment. Dr. Vijay will take your measurements, provide you with before and after photos of possible results, explain your treatment options and discuss your personal goals and expectations.

Step 1

Liposuction is performed under local or general anesthesia depending on the location and size of the treatment area.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can last between 1 and 5 hours depending on the amount of fat being removed.

Step 2

Dr. Vijay offers multiple liposuction techniques to achieve optimal results.

  • Ultrasound-assisted lipectomy (UAL)
    • Medicated fluid is injected into the treatment area
    • Small incisions are made to insert the cannula (a hollow tube used for suctioning unwanted fat)
    • Ultrasound energy is administered to liquefy the fat cells before removal
  • Suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL)
    • Medicated fluid is injected into the treatment area
    • Small incisions are made to insert the cannula
    • The cannula breaks up the fat layer and suctions out the fat cells

Step 3

While not required, some patients choose to transfer the fat removed with their liposuction to another area of the body that has lost or is lacking volume. Fat transfer is commonly used for natural breast and buttock augmentation or to restore facial fullness. It can also be transferred to other areas, including scars, to improve the contours and skin quality.
