Are you concerned about your excess fat? Or not knowing how to reduce the fat build-up in the body? Liposuction adopts suction techniques to pull out the extra fat tissues from various sections of the body- hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and neck. It is also regarded as a body shaping method and is popularly known as lipoplasty or body contouring.
Though not a typical weight-loss procedure or alternative, liposuction surgery in Gurgaon or anywhere can bring down weight more than through diet, exercise, or other alternative weight-loss procedures. The biggest advantage of this procedure is that it can concentratedly remove fat from specific fat accumulating sites in the body without interfering with the other organs functioning.
Areas targeted during liposuction include:
Calves and ankles
Buttocks and back
Neck and chin
Apart from the above regions, liposuction can be considered for breast fat tissue reduction in men with gynecomastia.

Different Liposuction Techniques in Gurgaon
Liposuction effectively eliminates the fat pockets in various sections of the body. With liposuction surgery in Gurgaon differing from conventional to the advanced high-end type, the fat removal techniques vary depending on individual needs. Here is a detailed description of different liposuction techniques adopted.
Tumescent liposuction is the most common type of liposuction where a sterile solution is injected into the fat sections. The saline solution causes the fat areas to swell and harden. The surgeon makes a small incision near the fat removal region and inserts a thin tube or cannula connected to the vacuum that suctions out the fat and fluid mixture from the body. Hence it is also known as suction-assisted liposuction (SAL). The whole procedure is done under anaesthesia, which alleviates pain and discomfort.
Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (UAL)
The UAL procedure uses sound waves to gently melt fatty deposits and remove them through small incisions. UAL is one of the most advanced liposuction procedures and is considered less painful and minimally invasive, allowing better skin tightening and more skin shrinkage. This method is highly precise, causing little tissue damage, faster recovery, painless, and less blood loss.
Power-assisted Liposuction (PAL)
As the name suggests, PAL engages power-aided devices such as MicroAire to melt the fat deposits while causing lesser tissue damage. A cannula with vacuum suctions is used to remove the fat with a small incision near the fat areas. PAL can be combined with UAL to give better results.
Radio Frequency Enhanced Liposuction (RFAL)
RF-enabled body contouring allows reverse ageing of youthful skin. The controlled RF heating in this method causes collagen regeneration and skin tightening and does not involve skin tags or loosening, giving an even-skin, natural result.
Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAL)
The advent of lasers has eventually helped through various medical procedures. Even in cosmetology, lasers are used exclusively in various procedures, and liposuction is one of them. The laser energies allow fat cell destruction and their sequential elimination.
The stubborn fat pockets are targeted using high-definition liposuction. This method selectively removes fat by improving the natural, muscular body contours. This liposuction technique can work effectively with fitness freaks involved in everyday exercise.
Possible Risks & Side Effects
Liposuction surgery in Gurgaon and elsewhere is a safe and effective procedure. However, it does carry an element of risk. Bleeding, anaesthesia reaction, pain, and swelling in the fat removal areas subside over time. The other possible risks involve:
Contour irregularities: Bumpy, wavy skin patterns after fat removal or uneven fat removal, poor skin elasticity, and improper healing all contribute to irregular body contours after liposuction. These irregularities create skin pigment patches as well.
Fluid accumulation: Fluids get retained in pockets under the skin that need to be drained with a needle.
Numbness: Temporary numbness and nerve irritation is possible in the affected areas that recede over time.
Skin infection: Although skin infection is a rare possibility, skin infections can lead to critical conditions.
Puncture internally: Rarely, a cannula can puncture the internal organs and tissues that may require a surgical repair.
Fat embolism: Sometimes, fat tissue pieces get trapped in the blood vessels that travel to the lungs or brain causing a medical emergency called fat embolism.
Kidney and heart issues: As fluids are injected during the procedure, shifts in fluid levels can lead to life-threatening, heart, lung, or kidney conditions.
Adverse anaesthesia effect: In rare circumstances, adverse anaesthesia reactions can lead to serious central nervous system problems.
