Liposuction is a fat removal procedure for women (and men) who are of generally normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat; this method should not be thought of as a method to control weight. Unfortunately, an unwanted side effect to this procedure is the return of the fat on occasion; this is usually from a different area to the one it was removed from.
Although there are more, the two most used techniques are Ultrasonic and tumescent and it is likely you will have one of these. The most popular of these two methods, Tumescent, is performed routinely now in the USA as a treatment for unwanted fat.
Fat is removed by a smaller tube and this also helps to reduce the amount of bruising that occurs with the traditional method. The Tumescent liposuction technique has proven to be safer than the standard method using general anesthesia but it also less painful and has minimized post operative recovery time.
Ultrasonic liposuction allows fat to be removed from traditionally awkward locations like the thighs, upper stomach and back.
The conventional method is often more difficult to perform over other cosmetic treatments because the surgeon cannot see where the probe is, and as a consequence internal injury can be the result. The best thing to do is to consult with a surgeon to choose the most suitable technique for your body.
The liposuction procedure although relatively safe does carry some risk of side-effects but fortunately fatalities are very rare. Anyone considering this treatment will need to have a medical examination first to confirm they are in good physical health for the procedure to take place. Keeping the wounds clean and free from infection after the procedure is imperative so plastic surgeons prescribe antibiotics to all patients during the healing process. As time has passed, a great deal has been learned and techniques improved.
A new procedure akin to liposuction is Lipo dissolve, which eliminates unwanted fat with a series of micro-injections into problem areas such as the neck, stomach and thighs. Because Lipo Dissolve does not cause any pain, it can be performed without the need for any anesthetic and be used with other skin treatments that do not require surgical intervention.
