What is Liposuction?

Liposuction, also called lipo, is a surgical procedure to remove fat from beneath the skin. It is one of the most well-known cosmetic surgery procedures currently performed by plastic surgeons around the world. Liposuction can treat thighs, buttocks, abdomen, waist, upper arms, back, inner knee, chest area, cheeks, chin, neck, and ankles. It can be conducted alone or along with other plastic surgeries, such as a facelift, breast reduction, or a tummy tuck. Liposuction can easily remove unwanted fat deposits in patients who are slightly overweight or have an average weight but struggle with fat accumulation in one area. Liposuction is never recommended as a treatment for obesity, as surgeons can only remove a limited amount of fat. It seems that one of the most regularly chosen parts of the body for operating lipo surgery is the abdomen area. Patients looking for a slimmer body are highly interested in experiencing this kind of operation on this area. In this regard, it should be indicated that another kind of surgery named tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is recommended if there is too much fat.

It’s important to note that liposuction:

  • is not a weight-loss procedure or a treatment for obesity
  • does not affect the cellulitis of the area
  • is not a sensible replacement for diet and exercise

 

Who Can Benefit From Liposuction?

Generally, good candidates for a liposuction are healthy adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm elastic skin and good muscle tone. They are nonsmokers who do not struggle with a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing. In addition, they have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for body contouring.

If you are bothered by extra fat deposits located anywhere on your body that will not be removed by diet or exercise, liposuction can be an effective solution for you.

 

Procedure

Your surgery may be carried out either in an office with up-to-date facilities or a specialized clinic. The nature of your surgery will define the kind of anesthesia that is used. As long as removing a large volume of fat is concerned, general anesthesia would be a better option.

To perform this surgery, there are various methods and techniques which can make a significant difference in the procedure that is going to be conducted. At first, specialists make some small incisions depending on the size of the area being treated. Then, a small suction tube called a cannula is inserted through the incisions and fat is suctioned away from beneath the skin. When the procedure is completed, surgeons might leave the incisions open, and surgical drains may be attached to prevent any probable accumulation of fluid in the area. Other specialists might partially close the sutures and then apply a dressing that will need to be changed regularly. If approved by surgeons, patients can get liposuction along with other similar operations such as an abdominoplasty or body lift to achieve their desired results.

 

Recovery

Typically, patients can go home on the day of the procedure. The recovery will take about 4-6 weeks. During this period, it’s better to ask someone to take care of you since you should rest for a while. You will have to wear a compression garment for 1 to 2 months after the surgery to control future swellings. However, you don’t need to worry about bruising or swelling because they fade away after several weeks or months depending on your skin type and thickness. Most people are able to return to work within a few days and get back to normal activities within two weeks.

 

The Results

Liposuction’s results are usually observed immediately, and little to no scarring will be left. The skin will contract and shrink for up to a year afterward, so you may not see full results for up to 12 months. Fortunately, final results are permanent. If you gain a significant amount of weight after the surgery, the fat will be distributed proportionately across all of the fat cells in your body. Due to the fact that liposuction will leave fewer fat cells where it is performed, less fat will return to those areas. There will still be a contour where the liposuction was performed. The best way to maintain your results after surgery is to stick to a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis.

FAQ

Some surgeons will carry out a tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) at the same time as liposuction. In general, many patients have had good results combining the two procedures together. Thus, it’s better to talk to your doctor about your preferences in advance.

In the basic liposuction technique, specialists insert a cannula (slim, hollow tube) through one or more small incisions so that the tip penetrates the fat. The cannula is then connected by flexible tubing to a suction pump that vacuums the fat into the tube as the surgeon moves the cannula back and forth. The other procedure called tumescent technique includes pre-injecting a salt-water solution containing small amounts of adrenaline and local anesthesia into the fat. The last method is known as ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty, which requires a two-step technique using energy from sound waves to liquefy fat before it is suctioned.
