Dr. Paul Vitenas

Houston Plastic Surgeon


Houston Liposuction


A good candidate for liposuction is anyone in good health who wants to enhance the shape of their body. Liposuction is ideal for people who have stubborn fat pockets that don't respond to diet and exercise. At the consultation, Dr. Vitenas will review your medical history and take all the time needed to fully understand your cosmetic goals. Dr. Vitenas wants you to be informed and understand your options as well as the risks associated with treatment. You can view before and after photos of actual liposuction clients. Dr. Vitenas also offers computer imaging to help you visualize your results. Dr. Vitenas will go over expected outcomes, and thoroughly explain the procedure, the recovery, possible complications, as well as fees and financing choices.


Dr. Vitenas performs liposuction in his private office operating suite as well as Day Surgery Center, an outpatient surgical facility located at Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital. Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia and normally lasts between one and four hours, depending on the amount of fat removed.


Recovery lasts about a week. You may be sore and have some numbness, bruising, and swelling. Dr. Vitenas ensures his patiens are comfortable with pain medication. You can generally go back to work after a week. Vigorous exercise and similar activities may be resumed after four to six weeks.
