All You Need To Know About Liposuction

What is Liposuction

If you’ve landed on this page, there’s a good chance you’re not seeing the desired results of fat loss even though you’ve been exercising and dieting. You’re putting the hard work in but you’ve still got stubborn areas of fat that diet and exercise aren’t moving. For those not blessed with Bollywood actors’ metabolism, Liposuction is a great solution to guarantee fat loss results. Rather than struggling to shift those last few inches, Liposuction targets those fatty areas to surgically sculpt your body.

What Liposuction Is?

Liposuction is not a weight loss treatment nor does it tackle obesity. Liposuction can provide an efficient solution for the removal of unwanted fat from specific areas of the body, leaving a more defined shape. Liposuction is especially effective in areas such as the buttocks, hips, thighs, abdomen, chin, upper arms, breasts and knees.

There are physiological limitations as to the quantity of fat that can be removed at any one time. Realistic expectations are the most important aspect when considering liposuction. Your surgeon will discuss the limitations surrounding this procedure at your consultation.

How Does Liposuction Work?

There are several variations on the liposuction technique, but SkinCity follows the Safe route with SAFElipo using tumescent anaesthesia. Then, a hollow tube attached to a vacuum is inserted into the fat layer beneath the skin. The tube, called a cannula, is moved through the fat layer in a push-and-pull motion to break up the fat. Then, the dislodged fat is sucked out of the body. Several incisions may be required for larger areas. Any incisions will be stitched at the end of the procedure. The area will be supported with a pressure garment. Liposuction can be used to improve the quality-of-life in people with disabling medical conditions apart from aesthetic indications.

Types of Liposuction

Over the years, liposuction has undergone many refinements; however the following are treatments of choice, depending on the degree of fat needed to be removed:

1. Laser SafeLIPO:

is a procedure which is done under tumescent anaesthesia which is very safe as opposed to general anaesthesia which has high risk. It is minimally invasive and the fat is broken down with the help of lasers and sucked out with the help of a canula. The fat removed is gone for good. This procedure is advisable for those who are within about 30% of their ideal weight. Subsequent amounts of fat can be removed with this method, however it is meant for people in good health and a fairly fit physique.

2. Cool Sculpt:

Cryolipolysis is a non surgical method used to destroy fat cells, which results in figure correction and body contouring. Cryolipolysis is used for removing fat bulges that are just under the skin. The effectiveness of the treatment can be felt within a few weeks and complete results can be appreciated by the end of nine weeks.


How Much Will The Liposuction Treatment Cost?

The Risks Surgical Liposuction:

  • Slow healing process– It has a gradual healing process that can involve moderate scarring; bruising that may last up to 4-5 months after the surgery.
  • Nutritional deficiencies– It may lead to nutritional deficiencies from malabsorptive operations, or anaemia.
  • Thrombophlebitis-It can cause thrombophlebitis, which is when a blood clot forms in a vein causing that vein to become significantly inflamed. This is more likely when the area treated is inside the knee or upper thigh.
  • Numbness– Patients may experience numbness in certain areas for several weeks following the procedure, but numbness is usually only temporary.
  • Infection– There is risk of skin infections resulting from liposuction. While this is rare, the skin infections may require surgery to fix and could result in scarring.
  • Swelling– Inflammation surrounding the treated areas can occur for up to 6 months after the surgery; this can also be accompanied with fluids oozing from the incisions.
  • Body fluid change– The change in fluid levels may possibly be problematic for your heart and kidney in the future.
  • Pulmonary Edema-It can also be problematic for a patient’s lungs as it can cause pulmonary embolism, and it can cause pulmonary edema, which is when fluid accumulates in the lungs.
  • Perils of GA– And, of course, there is always a possibility and risk of the patient having a fatal reaction, or just a bad reaction, to the anesthesia, which can always be life-threatening in the worst cases.

There are quite a few risks involved with surgical liposuction. Non surgical Liposuction or SafeLIPO  has generally been a very safe procedure, especially if done by a qualified medical professional in a properly equipped doctor’s office, surgery center, or hospital. However, as always, you must consult your doctor to make sure liposuction is right for you, as certain conditions might increase the possibility of the risks associated with liposuction.

Are You A Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction is a highly individualized procedure. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfil someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

In general, good candidates for a liposuction include:

  • Adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Non smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring

If you are bothered by excess fat deposits located anywhere on your body that don’t respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you.

Recovering From Liposuction

How Much Fat Can Be Removed In Liposuction?

Generally, the amount of fat removed during a typical liposuction surgery ranges from 1-4kgs.If a patient stays at his or her bodyweight after the procedure, fat will not come back to the body. For example, if a patient’s body weight is 70kg after the liposuction procedure, fat will not come back to the body if the patient maintains or drops his body weight below 70kg.

Fat cells, however, accumulate less often on the treated areas. So, if you were to gain weight after the procedure, the results of your liposuction surgery will still be visible in your treatment area. The reasons that this occurs is because the fat must go somewhere on the body. The treatment areas where fat cells have been removed by liposuction will accumulate little or no fat, while in areas not treated by liposuction, more fat will be deposited.

Is Liposuction Permanent?

The liposuction procedure is very effective for removing small fatty deposits, but it won’t help you actually lose weight. The areas treated by liposuction have the fat cells permanently removed and the new, enhanced body shape is more or less permanent, provided you don’t gain an excessive amount of weight.

Patients who do gain weight after liposuction tend to simply increase in size. The fat cells in other areas of the body will expand, so the new shape won’t be destroyed by gaining a few kgs. However, there is always the risk of gaining too much weight, which can stimulate the growth of new fat cells. This usually occurs after a 10% increase in body weight, which is more than the average person should gain if they are attempting to stay in shape.
