What is Liposuction?
Excess fat needs to be removed from the body in a controlled manner, which is possible through liposuction. Liposuction involves a process of extracting fat cells from your body through a suction device. However, you must note that liposuction is not to be mistaken for a weight loss or cellulite treatment procedure. It is done to remove stubborn pockets of fat cells in specific regions and improve the overall aesthetics of the body. It is suitable for adults within 30% of their ideal weight.

The surgeon will create a small incision in the area that has to be treated. A thin metal tube is then inserted into the fatty region, by incision, and performs a back and forth movement. Through this movement, the fat is rasped off in the tunnel and evacuated through a tube. It will either be attached to a suction machine or syringe. The suction tubes and gaps are then compressed by a compression garment, further creating a new figure. The treated area will then by strapped by an elastic tape of girdle. It minimizes bruising and swelling of the skin, and offers support, as it will be relatively loose. The girdle’s elasticated material applies even pressure on those areas that have been treated and evens the skin out. This process prevents sagging or irregularities that may cause on your skin.
Generally small in size, these incisions tend to disappear after two weeks. When large amounts of fat have been suctioned, the compression garment will help in the recovery process. It will enable the skin to conform to the reduced body figure. The process typically tasked 2-6 months.
To reduce excess skin, we may recommend a secondary procedure. In each surgery session, the maximum amount of fat removed is about 6000ccs.
Before the operation, you should be able to control your diet and weight. After the surgery is complete, your better-proportioned body will precisely reflect on the healthy and active lifestyle that you are leading. You will also experience mild pain once the effect of the anesthesia wears off, which can be controlled through walking and meditation. Most patients can also resume regular work in a few days, with minimum discomfort. You may notice the liquid dipping for a few days, which is considered normal for healing.
