Body-contouring procedures

Breast enhancement - Dr. Koneru can create fuller, firmer breasts to complement your natu- ral body curvature through breast augmentation. He can provide a more youthful and more proportioned look using advanced techniques for breast lift and reduction. Dr. Koneru also offers reduction mammoplasty to reduce the size of your breasts to give you a more comfortable look and feel.

Liposuction - Dr. Koneru offers tumescent liposuction to safely sculpt body features by removing diet- and exercise-resistant fat in areas such as the abdomen, arms, neck, hips and thighs. These methods result in a quick recovery time and can produce unsurpassed cosmetic results. Plus, Dr. Koneru uses new and innovative compression techniques that facilitate faster healing and decrease the time they need to be worn from approximately six weeks to two to three days, in most cases. Tummy tuck — By removing excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and tightening the abdominal muscles, Dr. Koneru can provide a flatter, smoother look. In some cases, tumescent liposuction will be performed for maximum results.

Cryolipolysis: Zeltiq™ - The COOL way to reduce fat is now in San Antonio - Dr. Koneru is the first physician in South Texas to offer this exciting new technology that is reducing fat without the need for surgery, needles, or downtime and at a price less than the cost of liposuction. Those patients in Austin, Midland, the Rio Grande Valley, and even Houston can travel to San Antonio and return home the same day for the procedure.

The Zeltiq™ is a new non-invasive procedure that uses controlled delivery of cooling to the skin to reduce fat bulges. Areas that benefit most include love handles, abdomen, and back rolls.

Those patients with a BMI less than 30 or who are near or at their ideal body weight are the best candidates for the Zeltiq™ procedure. This technique is definitely not a weight loss method.

This treatment is the first alternative to traditional liposuction in San Antonio that effectively eliminates unwanted collections of fat without the need for surgery or incisions. Others have tried to control fat with mesotherapy in San Antonio or even the Zerona® external beam laser. Our evaluation of these other techniques did not find them to be effective consistently. Most physicians using these other methods are not Board Certified Plastic Surgeons and usually do not have privileges to perform liposuction in a hospital. Zeltiq™ actually destroys the fat cells so that once they are treated, they are gone. Our feeling is that for those patients in San Antonio who have localized areas of fat that they want to reduce, Zeltiq™ is the best non-surgical alternative and at a fraction of the cost of liposuction.

After your intial Zeltiq™ treatment, you will see a gradual, natural reduction of fat over the next 2 to 3 months. Some patients benefit from one more Zeltiq™ treatment at that time to maximize their results.

What to Expect During Your Zeltiq™ Procedure

  • No general/topical anesthesia or pain medication is needed.
  • A specially designed applicator cup uses a gentle vacuum pressure
  • to draw tissue between the cooling panels.
  • You may feel a pulling sensation caused by the vacuum pressure in the area being treated.
  • When the procedure begins you will feel a cooling sensation in the
  • procedure area. This sensation goes away in a few minutes.
  • You will either sit or lie down during your procedure, depending on
  • the area being treated.
  • Procedure time can be two hours or more depending on the size of the area to be treated. During your consultation, Dr. Koneru will discuss how long your procedure will take and how much time you should allow for your office visit.
  • The Zeltiq™ Procedure is comfortable for most patients. You can read, listen to music on headphones, work on your laptop computer, or simply relax during the procedure.

Facial cosmetic procedures

Face and neck lift - Dr. Koneru uses the latest techniques for facial re- juvenation that offer smaller incisions, faster healing and less-visible scarring. His face lift is an extremely rewarding procedure that can reverse the effects of aging on the face and neck without it looking tight or unnatural. He also performs the mid-face lift to correct sagging of the cheeks in the central part of the face. And to improve a double chin, jowls and excess skin in the neck area, Dr. Koneru offers state- of-the-art neck lifts.

Forehead and brow lifts - Dr. Koneru’s techniques can correct deep forehead wrinkling as well as horizontal and vertical lines to help create a more natural, fresh and bright-eyed look. Dr. Koneru is one of the first plastic surgeons in and around San Antonio to offer the revolutionary ENDOTINE Midface™ implants, which can be placed quickly and offer exceptional esthetic outcomes.

Eyelid surgery - Dr. Koneru offers state-of-the-art blepharoplasty to remove or shrink sagging, loose skin around the eyes and remove fatty deposits that cause puffy bags below the eyes. This procedure can give you the refreshed, youthful and bright-eyed look that you’ve been longing for.

Nose reshaping - Also known as rhinoplasty, nose reshaping can beau- tify your nose and correct breathing difficulties. By reshaping the cartilage and the nasal bones, a balanced look with the rest of the face is achieved. Dr. Koneru’s advanced techniques can create a harmonious balance with your entire face, while maintaining your individuality.

Chin and cheek implants - If your goal is to bring a certain harmony or balance to your look, Dr. Koneru offers chin and cheek implants. Implants can accentuate the contour of your profile and provide finer definition to your face.

Lip enhancement - Dr. Koneru offers safe and effective injectible fillers that can give you the fuller, plumper lips you’ve always wanted. These treatments are performed quickly right in the office and offer no downtime.

Botox® Cosmetic - This FDA-approved procedure can eliminate the appearance of frown lines, crow’s-feet and forehead lines quickly and without surgery.

Restylane® - This injectible filler lasts longer than collagen and is highly effective at treating facial wrinkles and for contouring.

Chemical peels - Dr. Koneru offers a variety of advanced chemical peels that can reduce the signs of blemishes, wrinkles, acne scars or early sun damage. These include alphahydroxy acid (AHA), tricholoroactic acid (TCA) and phenol peels. Dr. Koneru’s on-staff clinical assistant performs light peels.

Microdermabrasion - Dr. Koneru’s on-staff clinical assistant performs this noninvasive procedure, which is highly effective for evening skin tone and texture, reducing the appearance of acne scars and decreasing wrinkles and lines. Dr. Koneru’s microdermabrasion unit utilizes a diamond-tip wand, which offers more comfort during treatment and dramatically improved results.
