Liposuction is the most commonly known cosmetic procedure across the globe. It is also one associated with a lot of myths and doubts. It is very important to understand the basics of why and how this must be carried out. When done correctly the results of liposuction are astonishing leading to a desirable body shape.
We all have extra fat stored in our bodies. With liposuction these fat cells are sucked away from the body. When performed correctly and by an expert, the most stubborn and unsightly bulges disappear without leaving any scars.
The most commonly treated areas are the tummy, thighs and buttocks. This procedure can be done in combination of other procedures for perfect body re-sculpturing. It must be remembered that liposuction is not the treatment for obesity or a substitute for weight loss. The results can only be maintained if a healthy life style is adopted following the surgery.
Any area of body can be treated by liposuction. The two main types of liposuction are:
During liposculpture 1-3 liters of fat is extracted under local anesthesia and sedation from small localized areas to achieve a better body shape. The recovery is fast and daily activities can be resumed in a couple of days. It is a technically difficult procedure and must be performed with great expertise for maximum results.
De-bulking liposuction is more extensive and larger amounts of fat are removed. It is also done under sedation or sometimes general or spinal anesthesia. The procedure is reserved for overweight people with a lot of extra fat.
The procedure is done by making small holes in the skin and a hollow tube is inserted in the fat layer and it is sucked out with the help of a machine. There are no major risks associated and if done correctly the effects can last for a long time.
The removed fat can be used to fill wrinkles and other defects and liposuction can be done with tummy tuck and face lift for additional benefit. Sometimes minor touch ups are required to correct some areas.
