LIPOSUCTION


LIPOSUCTION

WHAT IS LIPOSUCTION?

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and "sucks" fat from the body.

It is very much used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back. The fat is removed through a hollow instrument, called as a cannula. This will be inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum will be applied to the cannula.

Liposuction is not a overall weight-loss method. It is not all a treatment for obesity.

The procedure doesn’t remove cellulite, dimples, or stretch marks. The aim is esthetic. It suits those who like to change and enhance the contour of their body.

Liposuction is normally advised only if lifestyle changes haven’t achieved the desired results. It can treat areas of fat that were resistant to exercise and diet.

When an individual puts on weight, each fat cell increases in size and volume. Liposuction will decrease the number of fat cells in isolated areas. People should discuss the pros and cons of liposuction with their surgeon before deciding on whether to proceed.

FACE AND NECK

The most successful and safest method to remove fat from the face and neck is through tumescent liposuction. This will provide more natural results than a facelift. Some positive outcomes of the tumescent liposuction of the face and neck are fewer risks, scars, and fast recovery. For women its recommended to pair the liposuction with laser resurfacing or a chemical peel in order to reduce wrinkles. This treatment is very common for men who want to avoid having the surgical look of a facelift.

These risks and others problems will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It is very important that you address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.

Secondary procedures might sometimes be recommended to reduce excess skin. Special considerations would be needed when large amounts—usually more than five liters of fat—are suctioned.


VARIOUS TECHNIQUES OF LIPOSUCTION

Several liters of a saline solution with a local anesthetic (lidocaine) and a vessel-constrictor (epinephrine) will be pumped below the skin in the area that is to be suctioned. The fat will be suctioned, or sucked out, through small suction tubes. This is the most popular method of liposuction.

No fluid will be injected before the fat is removed. This method is seldom which is used today. There will cause higher risk of bruising and bleeding.

Also called as ultrasonic liposuction, the cannula is energized with ultrasound. This makes the fat melt when it comes to contact. The ultrasound vibrations will burst the walls of the fat cells. This emulsifies, or liquified, the fat, making it easy to suck out.

This method is suitable for fibrous areas, like as the male breast, back, and in areas where liposuction has been done before.

After ultrasonic liposuction, suction-assisted liposuction will be done to remove the liquefied fat.

Also called as powered liposuction, PAS uses a specialized cannula with a mechanized system which rapidly moves back-and-forth, allowing the surgeon to pull out fat very easily.

Also called as laser-guided lipo, this procedure requires the use of tumescent fluid. It’s a less invasive and bloody procedure than the traditional liposuction method for removing fat.A small tube is inserted through a tiny incision to deliver laser energy and heat into the fat that is under the skin.

After the operation, the surgeon will leave the incisions open so that excess fluid and blood can drain from the body.
