Lipoplasty preparation is a critical phase of liposuction leading up to the surgical procedure, offering patients an opportunity to clear their schedule and double-check overall health in anticipation of the fat-extraction procedure.

With lipoplasty, it helps to know what to expect. Liposuction has three major steps: pre-operative, surgery, and recovery.

During lipoplasty preparation, you will have a thorough consultation with Dr. Hustak and Dr. Wentworth, experienced plastic surgeons. When it comes to consultations at ACPS Clear Lake in Houston, we always make sure to discuss and address patients’ specific goals.

You will also be asked to follow some precautionary steps. You may be told to get a lab test or medical evaluation, take or adjust certain medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin. Depending on the type and amount of liposuction you receive, you’ll need to schedule someone to pick you up and stay with you for one night after your procedure is done.
