Liposuction is one of the most effective fat reduction techniques available. It involves using a hollow tube (cannula) to suction away excess fat cells from a targeted part of your body. Excess fat deposits under your skin can negatively affect your contours and minimize the prominence of the underlying muscles. Sometimes, exercise and a good diet aren’t enough to remove excess fat cells from targeted areas, and that’s where liposuction enters the picture. Liposuction in Dallas allows you to remove highly targeted pockets of unwanted fat.

Popular Areas for Liposuction:

  • Chin
  • Bra fat
  • Arms
  • Upper back
  • Lower back
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Flanks
  • Thighs

Goals of Liposuction Include:

  • Improve the contours of your body
  • Remove excess fat deposits from highly targeted locations
  • Make your body look more firm and youthful
  • Enhance the prominence of the underlying muscles
  • Allow you to appreciate the results of your exercise and workouts

Candidates for Liposuction:

  • Want to remove excess fat deposits from targeted areas
  • Have trouble removing excess fat cells through traditional methods, such as exercise
  • Want to enhance the visibility of their muscles
  • Want to fit into more attractive clothing
  • Are close to the goal weight
  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations from the procedure
  • Understand that liposuction isn’t a weight loss procedure
  • Are nonsmokers or willing to stop smoking before and after the procedure
  • Can take around one week off work and other responsibilities to recover

Dr. Chiodo’s Tumescent Liposuction Technique

Dr. Chiodo performs a highly personalized tumescent liposuction surgery to ensure safe, consistent, and natural-looking results with minimal downtime. During your consultation, he carefully examines your body, asks about your concerns and goals, identifies the parts of the body with excess fat deposits, and reviews your medical history. He also marks the treatment areas with excess fat pockets, following which he describes the entire treatment process. Dr. Chiodo performs liposuction in Dallas in his state-of-the-art operating room under local anesthesia.

During the liposuction procedure, Dr. Chiodo injects a specialized fluid containing a local anesthetic and epinephrine into the targeted fat deposits. The local anesthetic reduces pain, and the epinephrine reduces bleeding and bruising, thus ensuring optimal results. Dr. Chiodo makes an extremely small incision (one-quarter of an inch) on the targeted area, following which a cannula is inserted. The cannula loosens and suctions away excess fat cells from your body. Finally, the incision is closed with sutures.

Recovery After Liposuction

Liposuction involves minimal downtime. You will have to wear compression garments for around 6 weeks to ensure optimal healing and avoid strenuous workouts for 4 weeks, but you can resume most of your daily activities and work within a week. The redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising should gradually dissipate after a week. The scar from your liposuction in Dallas will gradually heal and become barely perceptible, especially since it’s placed on the natural creases of your skin.
