LIPOSUCTION: WHAT IS A LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or liposculpture is a surgery procedure performed to remove fat deposits from different sites of the body. The liposuction is usually carried out using a stainless steel hollow tube called cannula, which can generally leave a scar of only 3mm of length, and an aspirator, which is a suction device.
The objective of removing fat deposits via a liposuction is to reshape specific areas of the body, contouring it, it is not a weight loss method, but it can significantly increase a patient’s self-esteem.
LIPOSUCTION: WHY SHOULD I GET A LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction or lipoplasty can provide impressive results to a specific group of patients. During a liposuction surgery, small amounts of fat are removed from the body. However, what produces the dramatic effects after a liposuction is the process of recontouring the body just as if the patient had been under a rigorous diet. Although the process is relatively fast, sometimes results might take more time than what a patient would like. Expectations about liposuction should be based on the patient’s age, weight, skin’s elasticity and health among other factors.
After a liposuction is performed, many patients feel ready to go back to the lifestyle and set of activities they abandoned because of their appearance. At the same time, these patients also report an impressive improvement on their self confidence and self image. The most common areas of the body to undergo a liposuction include the tummy, thighs and buttocks, which are hard to reshape with diet or exercise, and are also the most likely to get optimal results after the liposuction procedure is finished.
LIPOSUCTION: AM I AN ELIGIBLE CANDIDATE?
One of the most important aspects to be a good candidate for a liposuction is to be sure about expectations and set realistic goals with the liposuction procedure. Your skin’s elasticity is important because it helps dramatically with the final cosmetic results. It is also very important to have a good physical health as well as a good psychological health.
The most important results and goals of a liposuction are to improve your general well being and health, and reshaping specific areas of your body. The liposuction surgery will also help in contouring and harmonizing your body proportions.
In order to perform a liposuction or body contouring procedure you must be near your normal weight (within 25 pounds of your normal weight). There is no age limit to perform the surgery however you must have fat deposits that can not be removed with diets or physical exercise.
LIPOSUCTION: THE PROCEDURE
The liposuction procedure can be performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. After the patient is under the effect of anesthesia, liposuction is performed through small incisions that are normally in areas where scars will not be visible. The liposuction surgeon will insert a thin cannula through these incisions to loosen the excess fat which is then vacuumed using a surgical vacuum attached to the cannula.
It is normal that patients loose important amounts of blood and other fluids
while the surgeon performs the liposuction. To prevent anemia
or dehydrations, patients receive intravenous fluids during the procedure.
The final step in a liposuction procedure is to close the incisions, which is done according to the surgeon experience and preferences.
There are many different types of liposuction that include superficial, deep or tumescent liposuction among others. The team of liposuction surgeons at Natural Belle will make sure to study your case closely and recommend the best option according to your particular needs.
LIPOSUCTION: THE RECOVERY PROCESS
After a liposuction procedure patients will usually be
asked to wear compression garments around the operated area. It is recommendable
that you use these garments at least 24 hours a day for about 30 days.
Furthermore, it is normal that the patient’s skin gets swollen and the patient experiences moderate pain for about a week or more. In some cases your surgeon might decide to leave a drain inserted.
The pain and swollenness should disappear with anti-inflammatory pills no later than 15 days after the surgery. The liposuction recovery is usually really quick and most patients can get back to work after the surgery. Exercise, sports and physical activities will be restricted during the first 3 or 4 weeks after liposuction. Sometimes however, a patient can get hard nodules and experience a numbness sensation which requires massages by a qualified person.
Full recovery of a liposuction surgery will take between 3 to 6 months. After this time you will finally note your new body contouring. The best part of a liposuction is that results are usually permanent if you follow a good new life style to avoid new interventions.
