If you want to get rid of the unwanted fatty tissues from the body, then Liposuction can help you achieve the best-contoured figure. Now before undergoing one such procedure, you must know 

What Liposuction is and how does it work?

Liposuction surgery or lipoplasty is a surgical procedure that uses a fat suction technique to remove the liquefied form of fat from specific areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, love handles, buttocks, neck and even arms. The fat cells start increasing when you start becoming fat. The liposuction procedure helps to reduce the number of fat cells from a specific area of the body, which allows you to achieve a perfectly contoured figure.

But now you must be wondering how does Liposuction work on your body? Now once the unwanted fatty tissues are removed, the skin starts moulding to the new shape only if your skin has a good skin elasticity. People with reduced skin elasticity might end up having a loose skin appearance. Anyone undergoing a liposuction procedure must be aware of the fact that Liposuction will not help you to get rid of any cellulite, skin irregularities or even stretch marks.

People who are suffering from conditions like diabetes, restricted blood flow, coronary arterial disease or weak immune system must avoid undergoing liposuction surgery.

Preparing for the procedure:-

Once you are aware of all the benefits of liposuction surgery, you must start consulting with an experienced cosmetic surgeon. As the next step, you must follow the pre-op instructions that are provided by the surgeon so that you can achieve the best results by involving no complications at all. Immediately before undergoing the procedure, the cosmetic surgeon will mostly mark the areas of the body from where the fat is to be removed. The area of treatment is usually administered with local anaesthesia or a numbing cream so that patients do not feel any discomfort during the procedure.

Liposuction procedure:-

If you want to know how liposuction surgery is done? Then the following are the most common liposuction techniques used-

  1. Tumescent Liposuction- This is the most popular liposuction surgery that involves injecting a sterile saline solution into the area of treatment. The sterile saline solution is a mixture of salt solution, anaesthetic and a drug that helps to contract the blood vessels of the treatment area. Once this solution is injected into the area of treatment, the area swells up, and this is the time when the surgeon makes a small incision to insert a cannula which is a thin tube. This tube helps to vacuum suction out the molten fat and fluids from the body.
  2. Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)- The ultrasound-assisted liposuction procedure involves using a metal rod that produces ultrasound energy under the skin to liquefy the fat, which is easier to remove.
  3. Laser-assisted Liposuction (LAL) – In this procedure, a laser fibre with high-intensity laser light is used to liquefy the fat cells so that it can be easily removed from the body.
  4. Powered Liposuction- This procedure utilizes a power-assisted cannula that moves in a back and forth direction, which allows pulling out the fat quickly.

Now you must be thinking how long does liposuction surgery take? The length of the procedure usually depends on the amount of fat removed from the area of treatment. Most of the liposuction procedure is performed on an outpatient basis so patients can go back to their home a few hours after undergoing the procedure.

What to expect after Liposuction Surgery? 

Most of the people experience some amount of swelling, bruising and pain immediately after undergoing the procedure. However, the patients must strictly follow the post-op instructions that are provided by their cosmetic surgeon. Patients can resume their daily activities within a few days of undergoing the procedure, while they can resume physical exercises after a few weeks. The result obtained from this procedure is permanent and long-lasting unless you start gaining weight again.
