Liposuction is a surgical procedure that permanently removes fat from selected areas of the body. Using a special type of local anesthesia known as tumescent anesthesia, which freezes the area to be operated on. “Tumescent" is a medical term which means engorged. The area to be sculpted is engorged with a solution containing lidocaine (an anesthetic )and epinephrine (a blood vessel constricting chemical). Engorging the area allows for easier and more uniform fat removal. The epinephrine reduces blood loss and dramatically minimizes subsequent bruising. The lidocaine eliminates pain during the procedure. For some procedures, a light intravenous sedation may be given for greater patient comfort.
For those who have failed with dieting and exercise, liposuction is the most effective way to permanently change the shape of your body and improve your figure. Specifically, it is meant to remove areas of disproportionate fat accumulation - areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction is very effective for correcting "saddlebag" hips, flattening bulging abdomens, re-contouring a sagging neck, removing stubborn "love handles", sculpting a more pleasing waistline, reducing facial "jowls", and thinning out fat thighs, knees and legs.
Thigh spacing - Prevents rubbing of thighs after removing the fat from inner sides of thighs.
Stem cells – Obtained from liposuction are used for wound healing, hair growth, breast augmentation, etc.
Fat transfer - For Lipofilling of depressed scars, hypoplastic malar eminences, facial rejuvenation, etc.
Abdominal Etching - To make the abdominal muscles prominent by etching grooves at the tendinous intersections.
Multiple Lipomas - Multiple swellings under the skin which are otherwise left alone for the fear of multiple scars can be removed through a hole.
Breast lift - Sagging of the breast after lactation can be firmed.
Male Breasts – Can be aspirated through a tiny hole.
Enough fat is removed from each site operated on to give a desirable contour. The actual amount varies from site to site, and person to person. Sometimes as little as one ounce of fat removed from the neck can make a dramatic change in appearance. On the other hand, liposuction of the torso may yield as much as ten liters of fat.
Most people can notice a substantial improvement in their body contour within a day. However, the anesthetic injected to "numb" the sculpted area, which takes about two days to drain and absorb, and post-operative swelling can briefly obscure the results. By six weeks, 90% of the healing and remodelling of the fat compartment operated on and contraction of the skin over this area has occurred. Your new figure at this time is just about what it will be, although improvement can continue for up to 6 months following the procedure.
Preoperatively, a medical history and brief physical examination along with some basic tests are required. Patients should avoid certain medications that may cause excessive bleeding, such as aspirin. Postoperatively, patients must wear special garments. These garments are worn for up to a month, depending on the area operated on. Tight but comfortable, they compress the skin over the area liposuctioned, ensuring proper remodelling and skin contraction. Patients can expect to resume regular activities such as work and some light exercise two days after the procedure.
Tumescent liposuction is one of the safest cosmetic surgical procedures performed. There can be some swelling and bruising of the areas operated on. Rarely, fluid or blood pockets can form under the skin and have to be drained. Other complications such as infection, heavy blood loss or scarring, while possible, rarely occur. Liposuction in the right hands is virtually complication-free!
Power assisted liposuction (PAL) uses a powered cannula which produces tiny, rapid vibrations to break up fat cells. Although the name might imply a rough procedure, power assisted liposuction is actually gentler than traditional liposuction because it allows the surgeon to remove fat with more controlled and precise motions. This type of liposuction causes less discomfort for the patient, can be performed more quickly, and frequently results in the removal of more fat than would be possible with other forms of liposuction.
