1. What is Liposuction and Its types?
Liposuction is a procedure in which localized deposits of fat are removed to re-contour one or more areas of the body. The process involves the removal of excess fatty tissue through suction, from areas such as the abdomen, inner or outer thighs, buttocks, neck or other areas, in order to achieve an improvement in the general body contour.
Types of liposuction
Traditional liposuction removes fat from the body with suction. Laser liposuction ruptures and melts fat cells with laser power before removing them. The benefit of laser liposuction is that this minimally invasive procedure can be done painlessly with an only local anaesthetic. Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasonic waves to emulsify/melt the fat before suctioning it out of the body. Nowadays, the tumescent technique is widely used and will typically allow you to be back at work within 1-3 days.
2. What is the Procedure of liposuction?
At first, you will be given anaesthesia to minimize the pain and ease the procedure. Then, the surgeon will make a tiny incision through which a narrow tube or cannula is inserted. The cannula is pushed then pulled through the fat layer, breaking up the fat cells and suctioning them out in conventional suction assisted liposuction (SAL) . It takes one to two hours for the entire liposuction procedure.
Choosing the right method of liposuction for you is important, but the really critical difference in outcomes is your surgeon. In the hands of experts, liposuction is a safe and effective fat-removal treatment. Dr Ritesh offers high-quality contouring with his vast experience and training for his patient to achieve the desired result.
