Liposuction can be done by itself or along with other procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast reduction or facelift.
Some other names for liposuction, include the following, lipo, liposculpture suction lipectomy (“suction-assisted fat removal”), or lipoplasty (“fat modeling”).
This cosmetic surgery operation’s primary purpose is to remove excess fat deposits from different areas of the body. commonly treated areas include the butt, thighs, back of the arms, neck and abdomen/belly.
Parts of the body where liposuction is done:
Outer thighs (saddlebags)
Flanks (love handles)
Gynecomastia (male breast tissue)
Several factors limit the amount of fat that can be safely removed in one session. Ultimately, the operating physician and the patient make the decision. There are negative aspects to removing too much fat. Unusual “lumpiness” and/or “dents” in the skin can be seen in those patients “over-suctioned”. The more fat removed, the higher the surgical risk.
While reports of people removing 50 pounds (20 kg or around 4 stone) of fat have been claimed, the contouring possible with liposuction may cause the appearance of weight loss to be greater than the actual amount of fat removed. The procedure may be performed under general, regional, or local anesthesia. The safety of the technique relates not only to the amount of tissue removed, but to the choice of anesthetic and the patient’s overall health.
It is ideal for the patient to be as fit as possible before the procedure and not to have smoked for several months. In addition liposuction has not been found to be effective for the treatment of cellulite. Cellulite is the dimpled, or loose saggy skin commonly found on the buttocks, thighs and hips. Lipo can enhance the appearance of your bodies contours and result in an improved self-image.
