Liposuction, also referred to as Lipoplasty, Liposculpture and Suction Lipectomy is a type of cosmetic surgery that reshapes the different parts of the body by removing excess fat deposits from the desired areas. By using this technique, excess or unwanted fat can be removed. Breast, hips, thighs, stomach, waist, neck, chin, calves and arms are the different body areas from where the fat is removed using Liposuction technique. More and more people are opting for this technique to get a perfect shape of their body.
The concept of Liposuction is surprisingly simple and permanently removes fat cells from the body. The surgical process is used to remove unwanted fat deposited between the skin and muscle for improving the body’s contour and shape. The patients who opt for liposuction, generally have a stable body weight but would like to remove undesirable deposits of fat in specific parts of the body.
The goal of the surgery involves the removal of fat deposits that have settled in different areas of the body. The surgery is the answer to fat removal that cannot be reduced by the means of any physical exercise or dieting. The surgical procedure is helpful in removing the fat from the buttocks area by adding more volume to it.
People should have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure.
The surgical procedure starts by making little incisions of about 3mm in order to insert small tube named cannula beneath the skin. This smaller tube is connected to a device which generates high vacuum pressure. The earlier fat deposits which are treated earlier with the help of injections, are then suctioned out from the skin through cannula. The small tube (cannula) reaches to the specific desired areas of the skin by moving beneath the skin. Generally more than one incision is required and the number also depends on each area characteristics. In order to make the outer appearance homogeneous, the surgeon follows a cross line pattern to introduce the small tube (cannula) from other positions. The removal of fat becomes easier when it ruptures and liquefies.
This non-surgical procedure involves the use of non-invasive methods like ultrasonic, chemical agents injections and lasers. By using these non-invasive methods, the goal is to liquefy and melt the fat cells present in the different areas of the body.
After the surgery, the patient can have sore and bruised surgical area for some weeks. The patient may also face fluid draining out from the incisions. The patient can only take a shower but only after 48 hours after the surgery. Swimming or baths are totally prohibited. The post operation period requires a compression garment for about 3-6 months. The patient can get back to its normal routine life after 3-4 days.
