What is Liposuction Surgery?

Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes fat from the human body in an attempt to change its shape. 

There are many types of liposuction -

  1. Tumescent liposuction - local anaesthetic is used to numb the area of your body where the tube will be inserted.
  2. Ultrasound liposuction - This makes it easier to remove liquefy the fat by ultrasound technique. This technique may be particularly helpful in removing fat from the neck, upper abdomen, sides, and back.
  3. Laser liposuction - This technique uses low-energy waves to liquefy the fat, which is removed through a small cannula.                                                                                                                         

If you have overweight and too much body fat in the specific area, you might be a patient for liposuction. Or you're likely to lose more weight through liposuction.

WHAT LIPOSUCTION CAN TREAT?

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, chin and neck
  • Calves and ankles

Liposuction surgery risk factors include:

  • Swelling
  • Scars
  • Numbness
  • Post-operative weight gain
  • Temporary swelling
  • Bruising
  • Soreness
  • Rippling skin.
  • Permanent colour changes in the skin.
  • Uneven skin surface over the treated area.
  • Damage to the nerves and skin.
  • The liposuction patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for surgery or not.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on same days before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.
  • Most of the patients are operated under epidural or spinal anaesthesia where their legs are numbed and a fine tube is put in the back through which anaesthetic agents keeps dripping in. This also controls pain in the post-operative period

Before surgery, the surgeon and anaesthesia doctors will guide you about the benefits and risk factor of Liposuction surgery

Step 1 – Anesthesia: Liposuction surgery takes usually take several hours by giving local anaesthesia,

Step 2 – The incision: The bariatric surgeon will mark fatty areas to remove the hips, abdomen, thighs and flanks.  A cannula will be inserted by small incision to carried fat with suction. Liposuction helps eliminate unsightly bulges by removing localized fat deposits.

Procedures involve a 3-step process of Liposuction:-

  1. Separation - remove the unwanted fat cells from the body without harming the blood vessels, skin and other tissues.
  2. Aspiration – Patients fat cells are gently removed with suction and without damaging nerves, blood vessels, skin.
  3. Fat Equalization – smooths out the remaining thin fat layer, leaving behind a uniform layer of ‘local fat grafts’ that prevents contour deformities from forming.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: The bariatric surgeon will flap the skin with the help of Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips close the skin incisions and put the dressing on your wounds. 

  • Patient advises taking liquids for the first 1-3 days.
  • Wear compression stockings to prevent deep vein thrombosis.
  • Take over-the-counter painkillers to relieve pain.
  • Patient advises to take small amounts of food after stomach surgery and you need to avoid simple sugars such as soft drinks and candy.
  • A patient should chew your food well when eating.
  • Do not smoke, as smoking delays healing and increase the risk of complications
  • A patient may carefully resume exercise and vigorous physical activity 2 to 4 days after surgery.
  • Recovery from surgery usually takes between 4 and 6 weeks.

Liposuction surgery success rate is dependent on the skill of the cosmetic surgeon and procedures chosen by the candidate. Most of the liposuction patients will see 90% of results within two to three months after surgery. Post liposuction swelling settles after about 4 weeks and the treated area should look less bulky.  Liposuction results are generally long lasting if you maintain you’re their weight.

  • Does your hospital certify to perform these types of surgery?
