Excess fat can be detected anywhere in the body and can be resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction is a procedure used to remove and shape locally accumulated fat in the body. It is not a way to lose weight. Different techniques are used to perform liposuction operations. Modern technologies can produce better results than traditional liposuction, including laser, ultrasonic, and radiofrequency lipolysis. Liposuction is most commonly used on body areas that are open to regional liposis, such as the neck, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, abdomen, and waist circumference. With liposuction, people can quickly get rid of disproportionate body lines and continue their normal lives.
The areas of the patient’s body that will receive liposuction treatment are predetermined. Then, drawings are made of these places that make the body look disproportionate. The width of the area to be anesthetized determines whether local or general anesthesia will be used. Using laser, ultrasonic, or radio frequency vibrations through a tiny 0.5 cm hole, unwanted fat is melted and removed from the body. After the healing process is complete, there will be no visible scar. The length of the procedure varies depending on where it will be performed.
Your body's reactions to liposuction are immediately evident. Targeted parts become more prominent and thinner. Your body lines reach their final form after three months.
Most surgeries are between 45 minutes and 2,5 hours depending on the areas being treated.
The safe limit for one surgery is five liters. But more importantly ,it is not the amount of fat that limits the surgery but how many areas can be safely done during a single surgery.
Any fields with fatty deposits can be targeted by liposuction. The most common areas are the abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms, neck and legs.
No, liposuction ought to be done on a person with stable weight. If there’s little fat to figure with, it’s difficult to sculpt the area. Liposuction is meant as a way of removing excess fat and sculpting the remainder.
The wearing of a compression garment is recommended for 4-6 weeks. The compression garment leads to less bruising, the tissue is supported and the skin adjusts better to the new, reduced volume.
Patients can move around cautiously the day after surgery. Daily activities can resume after 48 hours however no exercise can be undertaken for four weeks after the procedure.
