What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure done primarily to improve the body contours and proportion by removing excess fat deposits between the skin and muscle. The focus areas usually involve tummy, hips, thighs and arms which are often resistant to diet and exercise.

What does a Liposuction procedure do?     
Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, chin and neck
  • Calves and ankles

The main aim of the procedure is to reshape the problem areas of the body as mentioned above, and not merely to reduce weight. In men these areas mostly include the waist and back and outer thighs and hips for women.

Apart from this, liposuction is also used in treating some medical conditions like:

  • Lipomas - Benign fatty tumors
  • Abnormal enlargement of the male breasts (gynecomastia or pseudogynecomastia)
  • Metabolic disorders causing deposition of fat in the body

Although, Liposuction is a successful procedure with many positive outcomes both aesthetically and medically, it is important to understand that liposuction does not help in treating obesity, cellulite, stretch marks or sagging skin. It is simply not a substitute for diet and exercise to reduce weight.

Types of Liposuction Techniques

Tumescent liposuction. This technique uses a local anesthetic solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine to numb the area where the suction tube is to be inserted and liposuction is done through the traditional approach.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction. This technique uses ultrasound to liquefy the fat, which makes it easier to remove. This technique may be particularly helpful in removing fat from the upper abdomen, sides, and back.

Laser-assisted liposuction. This technique uses low-energy waves to liquefy the fat, which is removed through a small cannula.

Who is the right candidate for a Liposuction?

Patients with the following conditions are considered to be suitable for this procedure:

  • Area with excess fat resistant to “diet and exercise”
  • Adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
  • Non-smokers
  • Healthy individuals, without any life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring
  • Liposuction is equally effective for both men and women

Who is the right person to perform a Liposuction?

The surgeon has to be a qualified and a board certified cosmetic plastic surgeon only along with good sculpting and suctioning skills for performing a flawless liposuction. The result of liposuction depends a lot on the doctor’s experience and acumen in sculpting and suctioning.
