Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is an aesthetic procedure that facilitates the removal of excess fatty tissue just below the skin by suction. It has become popular in the last years as more people request it from surgeons. This procedure concentrates mainly on enhancing and defining the body’s natural shape.
During liposuction, a hollow stainless steel tube or cannula is used together with another suction device or aspirator to eliminate body fat by employing various techniques. Liposuction is also employed to treat fat pockets in several areas of the body such as the belly and waist, buttocks, hips, and also the arms, chest, back, jaw, cheeks, chin, calves and ankles.
Liposuction cannot be used to treat obesity or any other condition. Patients must exercise regularly as well as have good eating habits in order to keep a healthy body weight. This procedure can be performed alone or it can also be combined with other surgical procedures including breast reduction, tummy tuck, and facelift.

Patients can benefit both mentally and physically from a liposuction. It is considered to be a safe and effective way to remove excess fat from the body. Some benefits of liposuction may include, but are not limited to, improving the appearance of cellulite, safely removing fat from specific parts of the body and sculpting areas of the body that do not seem to improve with exercise or non-evasive treatments.

Ideal Candidates for Liposuction in Cedar Hill
Healthy individuals who have decided that liposuction will help them achieve their aesthetic goals and do not have any medical condition or life-threatening illness that may impair the healing process are the ideal for this procedure. Non-smoking patients troubled by excess fat deposits and individuals with a positive outlook in life who have an specific idea in mind for body contouring are also good candidates for liposuction.
How does Liposuction work?
Liposuction can be done in smaller areas of the body, such as the space under the chin, or larger areas, such as buttocks and thighs. In both cases, a thin cannula is introduced in a very small incision, and then used in order to vacuum the fat under the skin. This surgical instrument breaks up fat cells and forcing them out. The cannula goes through a tiny incision and vacuums the fat beneath the skin by a vacuum pump or a large syringe. As the patients lose fluids along with fat, they are given intravenous fluids and carefully monitored by qualified professionals.
Types of Liposuction Procedures
There are different and improved techniques to make Liposuction safer, easier, and less painful. These techniques may include the following:
Suction Assisted Liposuction (SAL)
What is it?
It is a traditional method that uses a small cannula attached to a pressure vacuum. The surgeon operates the cannula manually. The medicated saline solution is then introduced into the area being treated and small incisions are made into the layer of fat. After that, the cannula is introduced through the tiny incisions breaking up fat and suctioning it out of the body.
Suction Assisted Liposuction is the best way to remove huge fat masses in a short time. That is the reason it is used in the correction of large body areas such as the abdomen, buttocks or back. One more quality which attracts patients to choose traditional liposuction is the price.
Compared with other types of liposuction, the cost of SAL can be ten times lower. Some medical conditions may also benefit from liposuction, including gynecomastia, where fatty breast tissue has overdeveloped in men, as well as lipomas or benign fatty tumors. Results may last for a long time depending on the patient’s lifestyle. It is important to exercise regularly and maintain good eating habits or any other routine that will keep you physically healthy.
Risks of Suction Assisted Liposuction
Just like in any other medical procedure, some complications may arise. Before you undergo liposuction, you should be aware of the risks and benefits associated with it.
The risks may include swelling or numbness in the area, irritation where the cannula is inserted, and color changes in the treated area. Fluid imbalance is another complication that may also occur, which the staff will be watching for while the patient is still at the office. However, this may also happen during your recovery at home. Swelling may also follow surgery. In some cases, swelling may persist for weeks or even months after liposuction. Embolism is also possible when fat detaches and goes in the bloodstream trapping it in blood vessels, or traveling to the lungs and brain
