Liposuction is the removal of unwanted body fat by suction, using a surgical vacuum. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure and is carried out to improve a person's appearance . It is usually performed with the objective of slimming and smoothing the contours of your body.
Sites : Liposuction may be performed on the abdomen, hips, thighs, calves, arms, buttocks, back, neck, or face. A liposuction procedure may include more than one site, for instance, the abdomen, back, and thighs all on the same day.
Liposuction is also used to reduce breast size in men with large breasts (gynecomastia) or to remove fat tumors (lipomas) but it is most commonly used for cosmetic body shaping.
Good candidate for liposuction : If you are considering liposuction, it is important that you have realistic expectations. Although dramatic results can be achieved, they may not be as immediate or obvious as you would like. As with all plastic surgery, the success of liposuction will depend on a number of individual factors, such as age, skin elasticity, weight, and overall health.
You are a good candidate for liposuction if :
Patient is of normal weight, Has healthy, elastic skin. Has specific "trouble areas" such as the tummy, thighs, and butt that will not respond to changes in diet and exercise.
The procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthesia depending on areas, surgeons preference and patients medical conditions and preferences.
Aspirin and Vitamin E containing medications must be avoided at least 7days prior to your surgery.
Procedures : The time required to perform liposuction may vary considerably, depending on the size of the area, the amount of fat being removed, the type of anesthesia and the technique used.
Liposuction is a procedure in which localized deposits of fat are removed to recontour one or more areas of the body. Through a tiny incision, a narrow tube or cannula is inserted and used to vacuum the fat layer that lies deep beneath the skin. The cannula is pushed then pulled through the fat layer, emulsifying the fat cells and suctioning them out. The suction action is provided by a vacuum pump or a large syringe, depending on the surgeon's preference.
After surgery, the patient likely experiences some fluid drainage from the incisions. To control swelling and to help the skin better fit its new contours, patient may be fitted with a snug elastic garment to wear over the treated area for a few weeks.
The benefits of this procedure are :
