Known also as suction lipectomy, lipoplasty or liposculpture, liposuction has become an easy way to retain the youthful look of our bodies. It is used almost by everyone, who has problems with subcutaneous fats.
Liposuction can be best described as a manipulation for operative removing of the fat from a certain place of your body. The fattened place can be the abdomen area, the thighs, the chin, the flanks, the upper area of the knees, the neck area, the area of the underarms, and so on. Nearly every area that has fats under the skin can be put to a liposuction procedure.The main thing that people confuse when talking about liposuction is that you get slimmer after the operation. This is not the case, although it helps people with certain obesity problems, or people who have been living on a calorie-restricted diet for years. But in most cases liposuction just removes the unwanted fat in a certain place of the body, its aim is not to make you thinner.
Liposuction can be done in many different ways. The traditional method is by using a special cannula for sucking out the fats. The cannula can be replaced with a vacuum pump type machines. This way of using the surgery instruments is called Dry Liposuction. Another types of liposuction include Wet and Super-Wet Liposuction,and Tumescent Liposuction. There are other techniques, involving modern technology, such as Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction, Power-Assisted Liposuction, or MicroAire Liposuction. The latest advances in technology make possible the appearance of even better developed Liposuction Techniques- the Laser Liposuction, the Laser Lipolisis, the Chemical Fat Removal and last but not least the Lower Level Ultrasonic-Assisted fat ablation. As the technological revolution is getting up speed faster and faster, there are surely to evolve new Liposuction Techniques. The growing development of liposuction is because nearly everyone needs it. Many people have fat problems, and most of them are ready to pay every sum of money the surgeons require to get rid of overweight.
But not everyone can be operated to remove the fat. Liposuction can be dangerous for some of you, so you must consult a professional before you decide to undertake the operation. First of all, you need to tell your surgeon your full medical history, all your previous illnesses, as well as all the medications you have taken or are still taking at the moment. You should be in good general condition, at a steady weight (15%-20%-30% of your “ideal” weight),and you shouldn’t suffer from pre-existing diseases. After the removal of the fats from underneath, your skin needs to have elasticity in order to gain back its former tightness. The laxity of your tissues can leave ugly stretch marks on your skin for several weeks. Liposuction on greater areas causes the same cosmetic deformities that pregnant women suffer from after birth giving. Sometimes excess skin must also be removed, if liposuction is done on a larger area of the body. The most important thing before heading into the manipulation itself, is to consult carefully all details with your surgeon. Ask all the questions you came to think of, to make sure no misunderstanding ruins your health.
