Liposuction: How Does It Work?


Posted By on Jan 18, 2017

Liposuction surgery removes subcutaneous fat that creates sagginess and bulging appearances and is ideal to bring a shapely and well-toned formation to the treated area and also tightened skin. The ideal liposuction candidate is a person who is not overweight; but leads an active, healthy lifestyle and despite has one or many problematic areas which make little fatty pouches such as in the stomach, love handles, bra roll, bingo wings and thunder thighs and so on. So here are the ideal conditions where a liposuction surgery would prove helpful.

How does the surgery work?
The treatable areas are marked and administered with local anesthesia to first of all numb the area and secondly, to prepare the area to swell up and stiffen, to cease profuse blood loss. Specially designed probes are inserted into the skin and poke it to break up the fatty tissues. Once the fat is broken, it becomes emulsified. The emulsified fat is aspirated out of the body. This fat removal leads to a better-toned surface for the treated area.

The surgery is much depended on the surgeon’s virtues towards the patient’s goals. Every patient wants to have a curvaceous body and smooth skin, but it is important that the surgery can achieve the same. Choosing a surgeon with a good image and past patient’s history is important. Go through the surgeon’s past patient before and after images to determine what the results aim to achieve.

Understanding Problem Areas
The ideal problem areas treatable with liposuction are abdomen; flanks; buttocks; thighs; chest, breasts, arms, legs, knees, ankles, neck, and jowls. Every problem area is manually located, and the fat removed to form a better tone.

It is subjective to mention that there are two types of body fat. One is visceral fat or muscle fat, and the other is subcutaneous or skin fat. Liposuction is treatable for removing the fat from mainly under the skin, and up to an extent, muscles, but most importantly, the surgery targeted to treat “stubborn fat.” Stubborn fat means which doesn’t respond to dieting and exercising and needs to be shifted mainly for a cosmetic purpose.

Amongst all the treatable areas, the abdomen is the most common one. Abdominal liposuction cannot treat beyond the muscle and fascia, and it has to leave the abdominal cavity alone. Sometimes abdomen protrusion due to excess fat is yet still, not eligible for the surgery since the reasons of the protrusion might vary. Other than just fat depositing, omental fat and intra-abdominal mesenteric can cause stomach pouch. In the later case, the candidate might not be ideal for liposuction.

Aesthetic Goal
If getting a better body contour is your goal, then liposuction must be considered at the end of a healthy lifestyle, a good diet plan, and proper exercise regime. Other than cosmetic purposes, liposuction is also ideal to treat post-natal bulging; gynecomastia or male breast removal, female breast reduction for excessive large breasts that cause back sprain and other problems.

What does Cosmetic Reason Mean?
The cosmetic reason is mainly something that needs enhancing one’s appearance. The last stop of every plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery is from getting a normal appearance to a better-beautified appearance. What the term means for seeking patients is simply how they want to look like after the surgery.

What is if the surgery goes wrong?
If the surgery goes wrong it, can get botched results with uneven fat removal and waviness or not make a difference at all. Permanent bumpy scarring is another potential risk. Consulting a good surgeon is very important and their advice on whether you need the surgery to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Liposuction: What Are The Risks?


Posted By on Jan 11, 2017

There have been lots of horror stories of botched liposuction procedures in the popular media. There is no doubt that with any cosmetic procedure there can be complications, but we need to put into perspective whether liposuction is dangerous, or not.

There are quite some things that, historically, have put people off liposuction when they might have otherwise considered going ahead with the procedure. There are several factors at play when liposuction goes bad. Sometimes an infection can set in and cause problems. Occasionally the cosmetic surgeon can over-do an area, leading to an uneven result. This can usually be put right by one of the fat grafting techniques now available.

Luckily, though, less and less liposuction horror stories are surfacing due to newer liposuction technologies becoming available to cosmetic surgeons. At the forefront of this new wave of lipo, technologies are Smartlipo and Vaser Liposelection.

Both Smartlipo and Vaser Liposelection are safe enough to sculpt the smaller delicate areas such as the face and under the chin. Smartlipo uses laser technology to liquefy the fat, and in the hands of a trained, experienced cosmetic surgeon, has a very good safety profile.

Vaser Liposculpture is based on a different technology than Smartlipo. V.A.S.E.R. is an acronym which means Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. Simply put, Vaser utilizes ultrasound energy to break the fat down into tiny particles which can then be suctioned out. The real breakthrough as far as Vaser Liposelection is concerned is the ‘selectivity’ factor. Instead of relying solely on the surgeon’s skill to accurately detect the difference between fat and other tissues, the ultrasound only targets fat, not blood vessels, connective tissue or any other structures in the body.

The real breakthrough advance with Vaser Liposelection is that the ultrasound leaves healthy, vital tissues like blood vessels and muscles alone. This, in turn, leads to much less blood loss and a shorter recovery time. Even better, the incisions are very small indeed, so in time, scars are usually only barely visible.

Often the risks associated with general anesthesia are avoided altogether, as these procedures can be performed using only local anesthesia, accompanied with light sedation. It is usual for your cosmetic surgeon to prescribe an oral antibiotic to prevent any risk of infection as, even though Smartlipo and Vaser are more advanced liposuction technologies, the body has still been through trauma, and needs to be given the best conditions in which to heal. So, even though all cosmetic surgeries carry an element of risk, liposuction is not as dangerous as the popular media has made it out to be.
