LIPOSUCTION

Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures performed worldwide. It involves removal of excess fat from areas of the body like abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, chest and chin. ‘Liposculpturing’ or ‘Lipocontouring’ is the more apt term, as the procedure is useful for body contouring.
Fat deposits in certain areas of the body like abdomen, hips and thighs in women, and chest and abdomen in men are resistant to diet and exercise. By removing fat from these areas, Liposuction helps reshape or recontour the body.
In people with healthy elastic skin, the skin shrinks and redrapes after liposuction. In individuals with excess loose skin, some amount of skin may need to be removed to attain optimum results.
Liposuction is not meant for weight loss, though there will be overall reduction in the body weight. Liposuction is not a substitute for dieting and exercises.
Procedure
Liposuction is usually performed under general anesthesia, although small volume Liposuction can be performed under I.V sedation and local anesthesia. General anesthesia is safe and increases patient's as well as the surgeon's comfort, particularly during circumferential one stage body contouring.
Tumescent and super wet techniques are utilized, which involve infiltrating a solution of saline and adrenaline into the tissues. Tiny access points (4-5 mm) are made in the natural creases or within bikini line through which the wetting solution is infiltrated into the tissues. The excess fat is then aspirated using fine cannulas. The amount of fat removed will depend on the number of areas treated and the volume of fat deposited in these areas.
Aftercare
A pressure garment/corset is put on after the surgery. The corset is to be worn for 3-4 weeks after surgery. One can return to work in a few days and can start heavy physical activity in about four to six weeks.
