Liposuction surgery

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction at the cellular levelLiposuction (also known as liposculpture, lipoplasty or body contouring) is most commonly described as the surgical removal of subcutaneous fat in order to achieve a more preferable body shape.  The technique itself is based on reducing the amount of fat cells in certain areas of the body – where it is otherwise hard to get rid of the fat in conventional ways (i.e. diet and exercise). Liposuction leaves a smooth transition between the suctioned and non-suctioned parts. Even though the technique is used to remove fat, the procedure itself should not be confused with obesity treatment.

Types of Liposuction

There are a few types of liposuction that can be performed:

Vaser liposuction

VASER liposuction (also known as VASERlipo or VASER-assisted liposuction) is a novel surgical method that utilizes ultrasounds energy to remove fat and sculpt the body for aesthetic body contouring. It is the best choice for those looking to spot-treat fat deposits to define the muscles through a minimally invasive procedure and give the body a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The procedure is best suited for individuals with pockets of excess fat resistant to diet and exercise. VASER liposuction can be used to remove fat from more delicate areas of the body, like the face and neck, without damaging the surrounding tissues. Also VASER liposuction has a shorter recovery time compared to regular liposuction which means that patients can return to regular activities faster.

J-Plasma renuvion

Renuvion, or also J-plasma is a non-surgical procedure for skin tightening that can be combined with liposuction. The procedure tightens and refreshes loose skin without the need for invasive surgery, extended downtime, or large surgical scars. The specialist creates a small entry point placing the device just under the skin. Once the device is in place, the specialist releases pro helium gas and radiofrequency (RF) to create a precise stream of energy (plasma). This energy generates enough heat to contract the skin while, at the same time, excess helium gas cools the treatment area. This combination of energy contracts the tissues just under the skin, which tightens it.

Is Liposuction safe? Pros and cons of liposuction

Liposuction results are long – lasting if a patient maintains his or her weight after the surgery, and the shape of the treated body area only improves over time. Liposuction reduces the risk of having health issues related to excess fat and aids in improving one’s self esteem and body image, but it is not weight loss surgery.

Considering the fact that liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries worldwide, it is encouraging to know that lipoplasty is not usually associated with serious complications. However, like with any plastic surgery procedure, liposuction may lead to complication development. Some are non – specific, such as bleeding or allergic reactions to anaesthetics. Specific risks or complications for liposuction include:

When liposuction is enough and when it is needed in combination with other surgeries?

For those in need of fat reduction only, liposuction alone is enough to achieve desired results. However, excess or loose skin will not be treated by liposuction. In these cases, other surgical procedures can be performed in combination with liposuction (for instance a tummy tuck or a breast lift). It is essential to discuss these options with your surgeon, who can recommend the safest and most efficient surgical treatment for you.

Other things to consider

Insurance. More often than not, liposuction is performed for cosmetic reasons. Due to this, most health insurance plans do not cover the cost of lipoplasty.

Which body areas can be treated with liposuction?

As mentioned above, liposuction is usually performed on the areas of the body where fat deposits are resistant to diet and exercise. Lipoplasty is most commonly done on areas such as upper and lower abdomen, upper and lower backflanks (love handles), arms, outer and inner thighschin. However, liposuction is not recommended on areas where it is easy to damage the nerves (i.e. face, calves).

Who is a proper candidate for liposuction?

The condition of your skin also plays a role – it should be firm and elastic. In addition, a proper candidate should not smoke or have serious diseases that might affect the healing process. It is important to mention that liposuction will not treat cellulite, stretch marks or loose skin. If you are not a proper candidate, alternative cosmetic procedures may be suggested by your surgeon. Other, non – cosmetic indications for liposuction are lymphoedema, gynaecomastia, lipodystrophy syndrome and lipomas.

Preparation for liposuctionLiposuction areas

If you are considering liposuction, a consultation is the first step you should take. Your goals, expectations, options, risks and benefits or any other questions you might have should be discussed. Your surgeon may take a few photographs of the treatable areas and offer courses of treatment that are best suited for you. The surgeon will also need to know about any type of medications you take (including over – the – counter drugs and herbal supplements) and allergies. Certain medications should not be taken prior to surgery, such as blood thinners or specific painkillers. Moreover, you will be advised to stop smoking for at least 6 weeks both before and after the liposuction, as the effects of smoking can make the healing process more difficult or even contribute to the risk of serious complications.

Recovery after the liposuction

Depending on the volume of fat removed, the recovery time can vary from a few days to a few months. An overnight stay is needed for those who have undergone a liposuction. 

Even though patients are usually advised to get up and walk around as soon as possible, any type of strenuous exercise should be avoided for up to 4 weeks. Every patient case is individual, therefore getting back to usual activities also varies from person to person.

Bruising, swelling and soreness in the treated area is completely normal and may last for at least a few weeks and fade over time. Results of liposuction may take a while to settle in – 6 months are usually needed for the overall outcome to appear. The expected scarring in liposuction is minimal, as the incisions are very small. Furthermore, the appearance of the scars depends on a patient’s genetic scarring tendency.

As it is completely normal to experience mild to moderate post – operative pain. Medications for pain management might be prescribed by your surgeon. Additionally, antibiotics may be prescribed in order to prevent infection. Elastic bandages and tape or other form of fitting garment will be applied to the treated area. What is more, a compression garment is to be worn by the patient for up to 8 weeks.
