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.
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.
