Liposuction

(chin, neck, tummy, circumferential, knee, legs, arms, thighs)

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or body contouring, is a surgical technique to remove excess fat from various parts of the body, such as the belly, thighs, hips, buttocks, neck, or arms, using a suction methodology. These areas are also contoured (shaped) by liposuction. It is a famous cosmetic surgery procedure.

For some individuals, liposuction treatment may be a good option, while for others it may not be the case. You must consult our doctors and discuss your concerns before going for the procedure. Good contenders for liposuction include those who have good skin elasticity, are in good overall health, don’t have a lot of excess skin, are not obese, don’t smoke, etc. You must avoid liposuction if you are a smoker, have chronic health issues, have saggy skin, are overweight, among others.

Liposuction is a technique that is used to eliminate fat from specific regions of the body that do not respond to diet and exercise. Furthermore, liposuction can be used to reduce breast size or treat gynecomastia. Fat cells grow in size and volume as you put on weight. Liposuction, in turn, reduces the number of fat cells in a particular region. The amount of fat eliminated is determined by the appearance of the area as well as the volume of fat.

Consult with our surgeon well before treatment to find out what to anticipate from the process. In addition, our surgeon will question you about any health conditions you may have and any medicines, vitamins, or herbs that you may be taking. Some lab tests may also be required before your treatment. Several weeks before the procedure, our doctor will likely advise you to stop using certain medications, such as blood thinners and some pain relievers.

Prior to your liposuction operation, our surgeon may draw dots and lines on the parts of your body that will be treated. Pictures may also be taken to compare before and after images. The technique employed determines how your liposuction surgery is carried out. To determine which technique to use, our surgeon will take into account how much weight you want to lose and whether or not you had liposuction treatments in the past.

Depending on the surgery, a local or regional anesthetic may be required. Your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and blood pressure will be monitored by our skilled staff throughout the process. The duration of the procedure may vary depending on the amount of fat removal.

After the treatment, you should expect some swelling, pain, and bruising. For pain relief, our physician may prescribe medicine, as well as antibiotics to limit the infection risk after surgery. Typically, you'll need to wear tight compression clothing for a few weeks to cope with swelling. You must rest for a few days before resuming your work and typical activities. Maintain your new form following surgery by eating plenty of lean protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and low-fat dairy products. In addition, you should exercise regularly. If you experience any unusual symptoms, get in touch with our doctor immediately.
