Hip Liposuction

Hip liposuction in Dallas is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that sculpts and contours the hips by removing excess fat deposits. Through small incisions, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted to target and suction out unwanted fat cells, resulting in a smoother and more defined hip area. This procedure is popular among individuals seeking to achieve a more balanced figure, particularly those struggling with stubborn fat that persists despite diet and exercise.

Hip liposuction corrects the following:

  • Stubborn fat deposits on the hips
  • Lack of definition or contour in the hip area
  • Disproportionate hip-to-waist ratio

Benefits of hip liposuction:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Targeted fat removal for precise contouring
  • Improved body proportions and symmetry
  • Enhanced self-confidence and body image
  • Customizable to individual aesthetic goals
  • Reduced risk of scarring compared to traditional surgical methods
  • Can be performed under local anesthesia, reducing the risks of general anesthesia
  • Minimal discomfort during and after the procedure
  • Quick recovery allows for a faster return to daily activities
  • Offers a permanent solution to remove localized fat deposits

Candidates for hip liposuction:

  • Individuals with localized fat deposits around the hips resistant to diet and exercise
  • Those who desire improved hip contours and symmetry
  • Healthy individuals close to their ideal weight with good skin elasticity
  • Non-smokers or those willing to quit smoking to optimize healing
  • Individuals with realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure
  • Those with stable weight who are committed to maintaining results through a healthy lifestyle are a good candidate for hip liposuction in Dallas
  • Patients with no underlying medical conditions that could interfere with surgery or recovery
  • Adults with a positive attitude towards cosmetic enhancement and body sculpting

Dr. Chiodo’s hip liposuction technique

During hip liposuction, Dr. Chiodo begins by marking the areas to be treated and administering a local anesthetic (lidocaine) and epinephrine. Lidocaine blocks nerve signals in the area, numbing it to reduce discomfort during the procedure. Epinephrine constricts blood vessels in the treatment area, which helps to minimize bleeding and reduce the risk of bruising. Once the area is numb, small incisions are made strategically around the hip area. Through these incisions, Dr. Chiodo inserts a thin tube called a cannula.

The cannula is gently moved back and forth to dislodge and suction out excess fat cells, sculpting the hips to achieve the desired contours. Dr. Chiodo uses precise techniques to ensure even fat removal and minimize trauma to surrounding tissues. After the desired amount of fat is removed, the incisions are closed, and a compression garment may be applied to support the healing process and minimize swelling. Depending on the extent of treatment and individual anatomy, the procedure typically takes a few hours.

Recovery after hip liposuction

After hip liposuction in Dallas, you may experience side effects like swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the treated area. These are normal and usually subside within a few weeks. Dr. Chiodo will provide instructions for aftercare, including wearing a compression garment to support healing and reduce swelling. You can typically resume light activities within a few days, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for a few weeks. Full recovery may take several weeks to months.
