Liposuction – A perfect way for body contouring

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes unwanted fat from the body and help carve a desirable shape. This has become the most common and popular cosmetic surgery. Liposuction techniques are used to reduce the fat deposits of:

  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Thighs
  • Face – Cheek, Chin, Neck
Your journey towards perfect body:

Before you take the step towards liposuction it is important to understand what are the desired outcomes you expect from the procedure. It is advised that you consult an experienced doctor to understand what you can expect from the procedure both during the procedure and after the procedure. Specially, when one wants to reduce abdomen fat one must realize that liposuction may not be the solution for it. Your skin around abdomen area may be loose and hanging which will not give you the desired result after liposuction. In such cases your doctor may advice you to do tummy tucking along with liposuction for desired results. There are various forms of Liposuction techniques available in the market and again I would like to stress that what may be suitable for your body may not be suitable for other.

Typically, before any procedure begins local anesthesia is given to the body part where liposuction needs to be performed. Small incisions are made on the body. A suction device attached to a small, stainless steel instrument called cannula is inserted in the incisions to extract the excess fat from the body. Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure. The time of the procedure depends upon the amount of fat to be removed. Only subcutaneous fat is removed via liposuction. Visceral fat is not removed or reduced because this type of fat lies within the abdominal wall.

Your surgeon may advice you to wear Compression garments post procedure. Compression garments are specially designed girdles that are worn after having Liposuction. They work to reduce both bleeding and swelling post-procedure.

Myths around Liposuction:

For those who think that Liposuction is the answer to all their body frustrations, let us understand what it cannot do:

  • It is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.
  • Liposuction is a body shaping procedure and not a weight loss procedure.
  • Fat removed from one area does not come back. But if you follow an unhealthy diet then it can deposit elsewhere.
  • It does not affect the appearance of cellulite. For cellulite-specific needs, consider Cellfina or other solutions suggested by your surgeon.
  • Thighs
  • Face – Cheek, Chin, Neck

Who is an ideal candidate?

The perfect candidate for liposuction is anyone who has excess fat deposits on the different parts of the body and aiming to get an attractive and slim body. The ideal candidate for liposuction should be above 18 years. The patient needs to be physically and mentally fit. They should be non-smokers. If one feels that excess fat deposits do not respond to diet or any exercise, liposuction is the right choice.

Risks associated with procedure:

Liposuction is a safe procedure and risks associated with the procedure minimizes when performed by expert surgeon. Liposuction risks includes:

  • Anesthesia risk
  • Swelling
  • Infection
  • Bruising
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Irregular pigmentation
  • Unevenness and haematoma

If you are considering having Liposuction done, you likely have a lot of questions about the procedure. While this by no means replaces advice given to you by your doctor, these questions do cover the most commonly asked questions regarding Liposuction.
