Liposuction dilates and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat, improving the contours and proportions of the body.
Despite the decent state of health and the proper level of physical fitness, some patients still have disproportionate body contours due exclusively to local fat deposits. The causes in these cases are usually genetically related to the lack of weight control or fitness.
Liposuction surgery can be recommended to treat stubborn fat pockets in the following areas:
It should be emphasized that liposuction is not a cure for obesity and in no way replaces regular exercise and a balanced diet. It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite, skin pimples that usually appear on the thighs, hips and buttocks.
Ideal candidates for this procedure are people with stubborn fat deposits that cannot be reduced despite regular exercise and a balanced diet.
What is the procedure of liposuction surgery?
Step 1 – Anesthesia
Medications will be given for your comfort during surgical interventions. Options include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. The best option will be suggested by your doctor before the surgical intervention.
Step 2 – The Incision
Liposuction is implemented through small, inconspicuous incisions.
First, to prevent bleeding and trauma, a sterile liquid solution is given. Following that procedure, a small hollow tube known as a cannula is inserted through these incisions. To release extra fat, a regulated back and forth motion will be performed. Using a surgical vacuum or a syringe linked to the cannula, the dislodged fat will be suctioned out of the body.
Step 3 - The Post-Operative Treatment
After the procedure, the treated regions will be covered with a compression garment or elastic bandages.These equipments will aid in the reduction of post-liposuction swelling and the tightening of the skin to conform to new body contours. In the matter of excess blood or fluid, small temporary drains will be inserted beneath the skin from existing incisions to collect excess blood or fluid.
Step 4 - The Recovery
After the swelling and fluid retention subsides, your improved body contours will be apparent.
After liposuction, it can take a few months for the swelling to completely resolve. What you should do is enjoy your new, improved body contours.
It is advisable to hold onto a balanced, healthy diet and continuous movement to maintain your results. If not, previous fatty tissue will build up again and harm the operation results.
Excess weight gain may destroy your hardly achieved goals. After your liposuction surgery, your leaner and more proportioned body should reflect your healthy and active lifestyle you are holding onto.
