Obesity is one of the main concerns in today’s world. Lifestyle changes, unhealthy food habits, lack of physical exercise, long working hours can lead to fat buildup and obesity. Excess fat can also lead to many dangerous diseases and also affect one’s confidence. Sometimes just exercise or diet changes may not help to get rid of fat. When exercise and diet don’t help to remove the stubborn fat in any part of the body, experts consider liposuction as the best procedure to get rid of the fat. It is a cosmetic procedure which helps to remove fat that generally accumulates in areas like belly, hips, buttocks, hands, thighs etc; This procedure is also performed to reduce breast size and tummy tuck.
Who can undergo liposuction?
Before considering liposuction the doctors perform certain medical tests to check if the candidate can undergo the surgery. Generally, liposuction is not preferred for persons with heart disease, diabetes, and any other serious medical conditions. The person might also have to give up habits like smoking and alcohol consumption to undergo liposuction.
How is Liposuction performed?
Liposuction will be performed under general anesthesia, In this procedure, at first, the doctor marks the areas where the fat has to be removed, and then a small incision is made and a small tube called cannula, to which a vacuum is connected will be inserted into the area. Using this, the fat cells are sucked permanently from the patient’s body. The surgery usually takes 50mins to 1 hour time.
Tumescent liposuction is a type of liposuction which is commonly performed. In this procedure, a large amount of saline solution is injected into the marked area where the fat has to be removed. And then using the vacuum attached to cannula the fat is sucked. The solution makes it easy for the suction and also minimizes the blood loss.
In most of the cases, the patient can get discharged on the same day or the next day after the surgery. The patient can get back to his normal activities within a week or two. And the complete results of liposuction can be seen 15 days after the surgery.
Even though liposuction permanently removes the fat cells from the particular area, it is mandatory to maintain proper diet and exercise regimen to maintain the size and posture. Unhealthy food habits and lack of exercise might cause the fat to accumulate in the body once again.
