Abdominal Liposuction

Abdominal liposuction in Dallas is a surgical procedure that sculpts the abdomen by removing excess fat deposits. Typically performed under local anesthesia, Dr. Michael Chiodo makes small incisions through which a cannula, a thin tube, is inserted to suction out fat cells. This procedure targets stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise. While it can improve body contours and create a more defined waistline with a chiseled abdomen, it’s not a solution for weight loss or a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.

Abdominal liposuction corrects the following:

  • Stubborn fat deposits in the abdominal area
  • Excess abdominal fat resistant to diet and exercise
  • Lack of definition or contours in the abdominal region

Benefits of abdominal

  • Improved body contouring and definition
  • Targeted removal of stubborn fat deposits
  • Minimally invasive procedure with smaller incisions
  • Local anesthesia reduces risks associated with general anesthesia
  • Shorter recovery time compared to traditional surgical methods
  • Can enhance self-confidence and body image
  • Can be combined with tummy tucks for comprehensive body contouring
  • Results are long-lasting with proper post-operative care

Candidates for Abdominal

  • Individuals with localized fat deposits in the abdominal area
  • Those who have tried diet and exercise but still struggle to eliminate excess fat
  • Non-smokers or those willing to quit smoking before and after the procedure
  • Individuals with good overall health and realistic expectations about the outcomes
  • Those who are close to their ideal body weight but have stubborn areas of fat
  • Patients with firm, elastic skin that will adapt well to the new contours post-procedure
  • Patients who understand the limitations of liposuction

Dr. Chiodo’s abdominal liposuction technique

During abdominal liposuction in Dallas, Dr. Chiodo begins by administering local anesthesia and epinephrine to the treatment area to minimize discomfort and reduce bleeding. Once the area is numb, small incisions are made near the targeted fat deposits. Through these tiny openings, Dr. Chiodo inserts a thin tube called a cannula. Using a controlled back-and-forth motion, Dr. Chiodo breaks up and suctions out excess fat cells.

As Dr. Chiodo expertly maneuvers the cannula, you may feel a slight pressure or tugging sensation, but discomfort is typically minimal. The length of the procedure varies depending on the amount of fat being removed and the specific technique used. Once Dr. Chiodo has achieved the desired results, the incisions are closed, you are monitored briefly, and finally, you are provided with post-operative instructions and allowed to return home.

Recovery after abdominal liposuction

Following abdominal liposuction, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the treated area, which usually subsides within a few weeks. Dr. Chiodo may recommend wearing compression garments to minimize swelling and support the healing process. While recovery time varies for each individual, most people can return to work and light activities within a few days to a week. However, strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks after abdominal liposuction in Dallas to ensure proper healing.
