Lipo means fat and Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery in which fat is removed from certain areas of the body. Liposuction will help you get rid of fat that you haven’t been able to get rid of with diet or exercise. However, keep in mind that this surgery won’t help you get rid of cellulite. Also, Liposuction shouldn’t be considered a solution for weight loss. Lipoplasty is a Liposuction technique in which ultrasonic waves are used to liquefy the fat under the skin before removing it. This method makes the fat easier to remove, so Ultrasonic-Assisted Lipoplasty (UAL) is an enhancement to Liposuction. Liposuction is used to remove fat from areas such as:
Just like any other surgery, Liposuction also has risks such as:
If fat is removed unevenly, or due to skin’s poor elasticity, the skin can become bumpy, which may be everlasting.
Based on your preference, the areas treated and your Liposuction will be done using different techniques. Different Liposuction types are:
Before the surgery, your surgeon might ask you to stop taking certain medications. You should discuss your expectations with your surgeon and ask any questions you have. Your surgeon will check your medical history and might take photos to use for comparison. If you are not having a lot of fat removed, you might not need a hospital stay and should arrange for someone to drive you home after the surgery.
You’re likely to experience pain, swelling, and bruising after the surgery. Your surgeon may prescribe painkillers, and antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection. The swelling usually subsides within a few weeks, and after a few months, the treated areas will have a leaner appearance. You can return to your daily activities within two weeks. Liposuction results will generally last as long as you maintain your weight, but if you gain weight, your body’s fat distribution may change.
Liposuction has a less invasive alternative called Non-Surgical Fat Reduction or Non-Surgical Liposuction. Liposuction involves a small incision and sucking out the fat through a tube. Non-Surgical Fat Reduction uses heat, lasers, cooling, or sound waves to destroy fat cells and melt the fat away. Non-Surgical Liposuction almost has no recovery time but can’t affect large areas of fat. This method should be used when the patient doesn’t want to undergo surgery. Another alternative for Liposuction is water-assisted body sculpting known as body jet which uses pressurized water streams to wash out the fat.
