Liposuction Success Story
Results may vary and are not guaranteed.

Liposuction is a procedure we have performed for over 20 years with thousands of successful procedures accomplished. Dr.Viera has performed liposuction for over 20 years with thousands of successful procedures accomplished. He is a Board Certified in Cosmetic Surgery and he has been a Clinical Assistant Professor at Baylor and the University of Texas Medical School. He received his training in sculpture at the Glassell School of Art in Houston and has a very fine aesthetic sense.

We use the latest technology such as the well-established tumescent technique and the newest automated reciprocating very fine cannulas. These cannulas are very thin and consequently are minimally invasive. Dr. Viera accomplishes the best results for his patients as demonstrated by our Photo Gallery.

Our goal is to remove all the excess fat in the areas requested, leaving the smoothest surface attainable. In the abdomen, a smooth flat, firm front with a narrow waist line is our goal. Liposuction is basically human sculpturing by removing fat. Dr. Viera is a renowned expert in liposculpting. He has been invited to demonstrate his techniques and results in The International Conference on Liposuction in Paris, France.

Puregraft™ is currently the most advanced fat transfer technology. Fat augmentation has, up to this point, consisted of directly injecting the fat immediately after removal with little success. Impurities were not filtered from the fat before the transfer. Puregraft ™ filters the fat and results in healthier, more viable fat cells which reduces inflammation. Previously, the redness and swelling of inflammation interfered with the fat’s viability and longevity.

Puregraft™ allows us to be confident that the fat we transfer is viable and long-lasting. Procedures such as injectables or implants will be replaced by transferring your own fat from where you don’t want it to where you do. Rather than wasting the fat removed during liposuction, this technology allows us to re-use the fat. Puregraft ™ can be used to make plump, soft lips, decrease the “smile lines” and “marionette lines” around your mouth, as well as many other areas. What could be more natural than using your own fat?

Consultation for Liposuction

Dr. Viera provides a lengthy consult with his patients during which he discusses their goals and examines them carefully. He then discusses the procedure and ideal technique for them.

He also demonstrates a slideshow of many of his excellent liposuction results. In this manner his patients feel assured they have communicated their ideas and requests as well as having a full understanding of the procedure and technique. They also feel confident from having seen the excellent results Dr. Viera can provide for them.

Liposuction Procedure

The procedure is performed in our AAAHC Accredited Surgery Center. This is the largest accrediting agency in the country. We have been accredited for over fifteen years and have always had the highest accreditation given. Our patients undergo a thorough physical and blood work prior to their surgery. There is a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and a nurse with a Masters Degree in anesthesia in our staff. All of our staff, as well as Dr. Viera and the anesthesia personnel, are present throughout the recovery process. Dr.Viera calls his patients that evening.

Liposuction has always been a very safe procedure in our hands. We have never had any bleeding or infection occur in any of our patients. We have always provided the best results possible in Houston and the USA.

Where Is The Surgery Performed?

It is performed in our AAAHC accredited surgicenter. There are various reasons why patients prefer our surgicenter:

  1. It is substantially less expensive than public surgicenters or a hospital
  2. Patients feel more comfortable in being assisted by our caring staff with whom they are familiar
  3. It is a familiar environment
  4. The risk of hospital based infections is not present
  5. There is a Board Certified Doctor in anesthesia as well as a nurse with a masters degree in anesthesia in our staff
  6. Our anesthesia personnel is well versed in this type of procedure
  7. Doctor Viera, the anesthesia staff and nurses are present throughout your recovery

What Techniques Do You Use For Liposuction?

We use the Tumescent solution to provide anesthesia, reduce bleeding and help avoid infection. The reciprocating cannula speeds the procedure and cuts down operative time. Techniques such as, Liposculpt, SonoBello®, SmartLipo™, ThermiTight™, Kybella® or Thermage® are techniques for minor amounts of excess fat and do not remove all the fat necessary to provide the best and most thorough result with a beautiful abdomen.

How Long Does The Procedure Last?

The length of the procedure varies with the amount of liposuction necessary. The newer reciprocating cannula is a powered instrument and speeds the procedure substantially, allowing for very fine control, and minimally invasive.

Is The Procedure Safe?

We are very conservative; the patient undergoes an extensive questionnaire so we can learn all their pertinent medical history. A physical exam is also performed as well as pertinent blood work. After this evaluation we can decide if the person is a candidate for the procedure. The procedure is very safe in our hands; we have never had an infection or blood loss in any of our patients.

How Long Is The Recovery?

This again depends on the amount of correction needed. Because of the techniques we use most individuals are up and about in two to three days.*

Do You Provide Pain Medication?

Certainly, we want our patients to be as comfortable as possible.

How Long Will The Results Last?

The results last as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. It never ceases to please me when I see the surprise and excitement in my patients in seeing their new abdomen with all the fat gone.
