Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes stubborn fat from localized areas. It results in a slimmer and more contoured body. During the liposuction surgery, the surgeon makes a small cut into the patient’s skin, after which different methods are applied to loosen the fat cells so that they could be removed from the targeted areas with the help of a cannula. The procedure remains the most effective option to remove fat cells from different areas of the body with excessive accumulation of fat, such as the thighs and abdomen. Liposuction can be combined with various other plastic surgery methods as well for better body contouring.
Once the procedure is completed, the areas that have received the treatment start looking more sculpted. Individuals undergoing liposuction can also consider putting the harvested fat to better use by opting for free fat grafting.
Depending on your skin condition and the targeted areas for contouring, the surgeons may recommend one of the below mentioned methods for your liposuction procedure.
The advantage about water jet liposuction is that it is safer compared to other options. In this procedure, small water molecules are used to break down fat which is then removed gently so as to reduce any possible damage to the blood vessels or nerves.
This procedure uses laser lipolysis technology that proves to be effective in melting and removing micro fat pockets which tend to cause uneven contours post-procedure. The micro fat pockets can be precisely targeted through fine application of the technology, effectively smoothing out the body contours. In addition, this procedure also comes with skin tightening benefits while helping the skin in adapting to the new contours as it stimulates the process of collagen renewal.
Breast Or Chest Liposuction is frequently applied to both men than women. Commonly termed as accessory breast, these protruding bulge located near the armpits and body can show through when wearing sleeveless clothes. However, the excess fat tissue can be easily removed with a liposuction procedure.
Abdominal obesity tends to occur when an excessive amount of fat tissue in the body is accumulated in the upper or lower abdomen.
Abdominal fat is a very common problem for both women and men, and this can be corrected through liposuction by a plastic surgeon.
For men, fat accumulation and weight gain at the waist often occurs at the sides (love handle). For women, it often occurs at the upper buttocks, the area right above the pelvic bones.
All of these problems can be corrected through liposuction, which is often combined with abdominal liposuction. Waist liposuction surgery dramatically reduces waist circumference. Those who have undergone the surgery tend to be very satisfied with the fact that he/she can wear smaller sized clothes (1-2 sizes smaller).
Although satisfactory results can be obtained through liposuction which removes excessive amounts of subcutaneous fat, it is recommended that one undergoes another plastic surgery procedure — abdominoplasty. This procedure is effective if abdominal muscles and surrounding treated areas have become weakened (Diastasis Recti or Abdominal Hernia) and especially if accompanied by excessive skin drooping after liposuction.
The thigh is another area on the body where fat easily accumulates, especially for women. If fat is accumulated around the thighs, the area looks unappealing.
Fat accumulation around the thighs is a problem affecting women starting from their late teens all the way to adulthood. This area on the body is typically resistant to the effects of weight loss via diet and exercise. Liposuction is thus effective for such problematic areas that are otherwise resistant to weight loss measures.
Fat cells accumulate in the buttocks of a woman and become worse as one gets older. Fat especially accumulates in the outer creases between the buttocks and thighs, and it becomes noticeable that the buttocks droop and fat is accumulated in the thighs.
The buttock liposuction procedure corrects mainly the outer two sections of each buttock (if a buttock was divided into 3 sections). During surgery, it is important that care is taken not to make the centre of the buttocks too flat. The buttock liposuction procedure is able to augment drooping buttocks caused by ageing into a curvy contour like those of a young woman’s. In some cases, fat can be accumulated in a small part of the upper buttocks (between the lower waist and buttocks). Even in this situation, the buttocks’ shape can be corrected and the curve along the waist and buttocks (side view) can be changed into a beautiful one through liposuction.
Excessive fat accumulation on the body and back creates an unappealing crease on the mid-back or below the armpit. This crease is often visible even if the person is wearing clothes. A back liposuction procedure can help correct this.
Fat accumulation in the arm often occurs in the area between the elbow and armpit. This typically cannot be corrected even by exercise or diet. Cosmetic surgery is often used to correct this.
Those affected by this condition, especially women, who may have an issue wearing sleeveless clothes can consider undergoing arm liposuction.
The back section of the arm where fat accumulation mainly occurs will be the main area undergoing liposuction surgery procedure. Through this procedure, the arm contours can be improved to an attractive one.
For those susceptible to lower body obesity, excessive amounts of fat can accumulate at the calves. This fat in the calves (and ankles) can be removed through liposuction procedure similarly to other areas of the body, resulting in an attractive ankle line.
As a person becomes older, fatty tissues are often accumulated in the lower face and neck in connection with the chin line. This symptom, often resulting in a pouch-shaped area among the lower face, chin, and neckline (aptly termed a ‘turkey neck’) can occur due to genetic reasons. These areas can be corrected through cosmetic surgery.
During facial liposuction, the face line can be improved through the process of removing surplus fat in the lower face, chin line, and neck and reattaching skin in the spaces where fat had been removed.
