FAQ's

LIPOSUCTION

  • What is traditional liposuction?

    Liposuction is a process in surgical fields responsible for breaking down and removing the subcutaneous layer of fat in the human body parts. These fats are stubbornly and notoriously resistant to diet and exercise. There is a way in which a pocket of fat can be removed that is not useful for healthy individuals.

  • Where can liposuction be performed?

    This can be in various places in our bodies. Following is the list of them.

    • Double Chin
    • Back of Neck
    • Bottom of Upper Arms
    • Female Breasts
    • Bra Strap Area
    • Abdomen or Belly Pooch
    • Muffin Top
    • Love Handles
    • Male Breasts

  • What makes an ideal candidate for the procedure?

    The ideal candidate for liposuction is the individual who is healthy or has the desired weight. Nonsmokers are also included in this list.

    The ideal candidates have stubborn fat which resides between skin and muscles. These are not visceral fats. Visceral fats have a layer of fat that resides beneath the muscle layer in the abdominal region.

    Surgeons always evaluate the condition of an ideal candidate's skin before prescribing liposuction. Individuals having good elasticity in the skin are considered good candidates for liposuction. Instead, individuals having loose skin or cellulite are not considered good candidates because this condition can lead to dimpled or uneven skin.

  • Is liposuction a weight loss procedure? How much fat can be removed?

    Against the myths, liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss. Instead, it is a procedure of fat reduction. The amount of fat that can be removed from an area during a particular procedure may vary depending on factors like the surgeon's assessment of the patient's health and aesthetic goals.

  • How does a patient prepare for liposuction surgery?

    Plastic Surgeons will provide instructions before the day of liposuction. But, in general, it is more important to enlist friends and family members who will help to take them to the surgical center and back. They must assist the patient with postsurgical care. Medications like aspirins and blood thinners are instructed not to be given before liposuction. IN a few cases, the blood work is done beforehand to ensure that the patient is a good individual for anesthesia. At last, on the surgery day, there will be a time when consuming food and drinks is prohibited. This prohibition is instructed 12 hours before the surgery appointment.

  • What happens during the procedure? How is it performed?

    Liposuction is a surgical process involving the creation of small incisions in the skin and inserting a tool known as a cannula into the fat lump. The cannula is attached to a suction device or a syringe that can extract the fat.

    This process is a typical outpatient surgery. Even if the patient may be kept under general anesthesia, they are often discharged and allowed to go home on the same day of surgery or after 24 hours, per the surgeon's guideline.

  • What is the recovery like?

    In most procedures, the patient can return to work after a few days and start normal activities like an exercise within 2-4 weeks or less. Although, recovery and postsurgical care vary in the area of surgery and the amount of fat removed.

    It is best to follow the instructions for fast and painless recovery. The patient might feel some discomfort. Also, lifestyle choices like hydration, not smoking, and rest can make healing time faster with fewer complications. Swelling, bruising, and tenderness are the most common postsurgical effects on the surgery area. The surgical team offers some pain relief options. They also offer a list of pain relievers to avoid them.

    Some standard postsurgical instructions include wearing compression garments in the treated area. Modified activities can be recommended a few weeks later to reduce strain on the treated area.

  • What sort of scarring is expected after the procedure?

    The cannula is a small instrument, and the scares are also minor. The number of scars is based on the number of insertion points for addressing the area. Depending upon the patient's skin quality, scarring also varies. Surgeons later discuss the location and ways to minimize the appearance of scars.

  • What kind of results should a patient expect after the procedure?

    Plastic Surgeons can help the patient to anticipate and visualize realistic results. After surgery, there will be some swelling, and the skin might be loose. Due to this, it can take a few weeks to months to see the actual result of the procedure.

    The fat cells, which are removed during liposuction, are removed permanently. It is important to note that patients can still develop new fat cells. Following a healthy diet, lifestyle, and exercise plans after the surgery can help resist the gain of new fat.
