Liposuction is a surgical procedure through which excess fat deposited in the body is removed. This surgery (Liposuction Surgery) helps in removing the fat accumulated in such parts of the body where fat cannot be reduced through exercise or other measures. These include thighs, abdomen, neck, face, chest, waist, arms and hips. It is performed by a specialist and requires safety and technical knowledge of various parts of the body. Earlier this used to happen only in big cities but now it has started happening in Tier 2 cities also, said Dr. Siddharth Mandiratta, plastic surgeon of Alexis Hospital. He told that generally this surgery is known for reducing obesity. Along with celebrities, common people are also adopting it. However, it is wrong to link it with weight loss surgery.
Suction-Assisted Liposuction, Ultrasound Liposuction (UAL), Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAA), Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAAL)
This surgery removes excess fat from those parts of the body where fat cannot be reduced even through exercise, yoga or other measures. By using it properly, it not only improves the external beauty of the person, but also gradually changes his health condition.
During liposuction surgery, the doctor first examines the health conditions of the patient. If the patient’s weight is suitable for surgery, then the doctor goes ahead with the procedure. Smokers and people with other medical conditions are advised to undergo liposuction surgery with special caution. During this surgery, the doctor makes an incision of 0.5 cm at the surgical site and a suction tube attached to a special vacuum machine is inserted through a pipe. Through this, excess fat is pulled out. The patient is usually given general anesthetic during liposuction surgery.
Liposuction improves beauty, increases people’s self-confidence, improves physical health and inspires them to live an excellent lifestyle. It also results in targeted fat reduction. Gynecomastia can also be treated by liposuction. Along with this, body contouring and post pregnancy body contouring is also done.
Along with the benefits, it also has some risks, such as the possibility of infection from this surgery. With this, there is a possibility of irregular contouring, fluidity, imbalance, change in sensation, holes in internal organs etc. That is why liposuction should be done only by a board certified plastic surgeon. Find out about the surgeon’s education and experience before surgery.
The time taken for liposuction surgery depends on the area of the surgery. However, in most cases it may take from an hour to a few hours.
Earlier, middle class people used to stay away from it. But now this has become common among all the people. Its cost is decided based on the area of treatment and the amount of fat. This includes the equipment used, fees, hospital charges and other expenses. 15-20 liposuction surgeries are performed in Alexis Hospital in a month.
Before undergoing surgery, ensure that whether the surgery is suitable for the person or not, only after that the surgery should be done. If you’re having liposuction, have realistic expectations and talk to your doctor about what you can and can’t get from it.
