What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure that employs suction to eliminate fat from certain areas within the human body including the abdomen, hips buttocks, thighs or neck. The procedure also contours (contours) those areas. The other terms used for liposuction are the term "lipoplasty" and body contouring.
Liposuction isn't often considered to be an all-encompassing weight loss strategy or an alternative to weight loss. When you're obese, you'll likely to lose weight through exercise and diet or bariatric proceduresfor example, gastric bypass surgery rather than through liposuction.
You may be a suitable candidate for liposuction if excess body fat in certain places but you are otherwise able to maintain a steady weight.
Before the procedure, you should discuss with your surgeon about what you can anticipate from the procedure. The surgeon will go over your medical history and will inquire about any medical issues that you may be suffering from and any supplements, medications, or herbal remedies you are taking.
Your doctor will suggest to quit taking certain medicines like blood thinners, or NSAIDs for at least 3 weeks prior to the surgery. It may be necessary to have certain lab tests prior to the procedure.
Before the procedure, your surgeon will draw lines and circles on the body to be treated. Also, photos can be taken so that the before and after photos can be and compared.
The method by which your liposuction treatment is performed is dependent on the particular method employed. Your surgeon will determine the best technique according to your goals for treatment as well as the part of your body that needs to be treated, and if you've had previous surgery using liposuction previously.
Certain procedures involving liposuction may require just the use of local anesthesia or regionalwhich is a type of anesthesia restricted to a particular region in your body. Other procedures could require general anesthesia that results in a temporary state of unconsciousness. You could be administered an anesthetic, often via an injection into your IV to keep you peaceful and relaxed.
The surgical team will keep track of your heart rate as well as blood pressure and oxygen levels throughout the process. If you receive local anesthesia, and you feel discomfort while undergoing the surgery, consult your surgeon. The motions or medication may require adjustment.
The procedure can take between a few hours and a couple of days, dependent on the extent of removal of fat.
Expect some discomfort, swelling and bruises after the procedure. The surgeon might prescribe medications to ease the pain as well as antibiotics to decrease the chance of getting an infection.
Following the procedure, the surgeon might leave the wounds open and insert temporary drains to encourage the drainage of fluid. It is common to wear tight compression clothing to decrease swelling for a couple of weeks.
It's possible to delay for a few days before going back to work and several weeks before returning to your regular activities , which includes exercise.
In this phase, be prepared for some irregularities in the contour when the rest of the fat settles in place.
After the fat has been removed in a particular area, it will not return. The remaining fat cells are likely to grow bigger as you increase. Because there are less fat cells present in the area treated (as in comparison to before the procedure) Other areas of your body that weren't treated could seem to grow in size.
After a couple of months, you can you can expect the area to look slimmer. It's normal for the your skin's firmness to decrease due to age, however the results of liposuction are usually long-lasting for as long as you keep your weight. If you gain weight after liposuction, your fat distribution may change.
