Get back a beautifully shaped body
Liposuction, or fat removal, is one of the most popular operations in the world. For most people, fat collects in problem places: on the waist, abdomen, hips, buttocks, upper arms, cheeks or under the chin; and even people who exercise a lot find it difficult to get rid of fat deposits. In such cases, liposuction helps beautify the body contour. In places where this procedure has been done, the fat cells do not grow back. If the patient subsequently puts on weight, the new fat gets distributed equally all over the body.
How is the surgery done?
To ensure the safety and effectiveness of the surgery, the liposuction operation is performed only on people with a body mass index (BMI) of less than 27.
In human bodies, fat is deposited in two layers: an upper layer and a deep layer. In liposuction, fat is removed from the deep layer by vacuum suction. A general anaesthetic is normally used for this operation, expect for liposuction on small areas, where a local anaesthetic may suffice.
For liposuction, special tubes of various sizes are used via an incision of about 1 cm to suck out the fat. The incisions are made in parts of the body that are not usually seen, , such as skin folds or places covered by underwear.
Post-operative period and healing
- In the place from which fat has been removed, subcutaneous bruising will be noticed in the post-operative period, but it will subside over 1–2 weeks;
- Post-operative scars are barely noticeable. To keep them barely noticeable, it is important to kept them hidden from direct sunlight for not less than six months;
- For 6–8 weeks after surgery (sometimes less) a special compression outfit needs to be worn, which prevents accumulation of fluid and helps the skin to contract;
- A course of lymph drainage massage is recommended in the post-operative period in order to get the best result;
- In the post-operative period some patients feel as if they have been beaten, or they feel as if they are puffed up, but these feelings pass within a fortnight;
- Abstention from vigorous physical activity and sport is recommended for a fortnight after the operation;
The end result of the liposuction will be seen within a period of 6–8 weeks after the operation.
