Liposuction, often called “lipo” in popular culture, is a procedure that is done to slim and reshape specific areas of your body by removing excess fat deposits and shaping your body contours and proportion, ultimately boosting your self-image. Dr. George Wooming, your Dallas liposuction specialist, can use liposuction techniques to decrease localized fat deposits in the following areas.
Areas of Focus for Liposuction
- Hips and Buttocks
- Abdomen and Waist
- Upper Arms
- Inner Knee
- Chest Area

- Calves and Ankles
Dr. George Wooming is a Dallas and Sunnyvale liposuction surgeon who specializes in tumescent liposuction. Tumescent liposuction involves a large volume of dilute solution of local anesthesia to be injected into the fat behind the skin, causing the area of focus to become tumescent, or swollen and firm.
This technique produces long-lasting local anesthesia of the skin and fat, and it eliminates the need for general anesthesia, or IV sedation. By eliminating the risks of general anesthesia and excessive surgical bleeding, the tumescent technique has also eliminated the dangers of the original forms of liposuction. During the procedure, patients are also able to stay awake and experience less pain than patients who have liposuction under general anesthesia.
If you are unhappy with any parts of your body when it comes to extra fat, you may be a candidate for liposuction. The ideal candidate for tumescent liposuction is physically fit and eats a well-balanced diet, but is unable to reduce fatty deposits that are well localized and may seem to involve a genetic susceptibility. Tumescent liposuction, however, is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.
