Liposuction has other names as liposculpting and lipoplasty. The surgery is performed to shape the body. The procedure helps to enhance the shape and appearance of the body. It involves removal of the excess fat. Liposuction is not an obesity treatment and it involves the removal of only small pockets of fat. The surgery is not considered to be an alternate to the cellulite treatment, healthy diet and exercise.
The fatty areas present in the neck, thighs, buttocks, abdomen and arms are removed. The surgeons remove the fat through mechanism of the suction, so only small amounts of fat only should be removed, during the sittings, so that the contour and dents can be avoided.
- Enlarged breasts or gynaecomastia present in males
- Benign or lipomas fatty tumors
- Abnormal fatty tissue lumps or lipodystrophy in any of the organs in the body
- Candidates, who have normal weight of the body, pockets of fat and firm skin
The candidate will be eligible for the liposuction procedure, if he or she is above 18 years of age, have in good health condition, and does not have any systemic illness and non-smoker. If the candidate is a smoker, he or she should stop smoking before 2 weeks of the procedure. And liposuction should not be performed along with the abdominoplasty, as it will be highly risky.
Before the Procedure
The candidate is made a thorough and complete assessment, considering the previous medical condition and psychological readiness. The outcome and expectations are to be discussed together by the surgical team and the candidate. Candidate needs sign over the consent.
Fat removal areas are marked initially. Administration of the antibiotics are done just 1 hours prior to the surgery. Photographs are taken for the fat removal sites to compare the results after the procedure.
There are multiple procedures performed to achieve the results of the liposuction procedure. All these procedures are performed either under the general anesthesia or local anesthesia and the surgery takes about 3 to 4 hours of time. The surgeon needs to be qualified and highly competent to perform this surgery. Throughout the stay in the hospital, the candidate has to be monitored and checked against the blood oxygen levels, heart rate and blood pressure. Intravenous fluid must be given, as there will be great loss of fluid during the fat removal.

The fat is broken down and liquefied through a cannula or a thin wire, by transmitting the pulsed ultrasound energy. Male back and chest are the areas are better treated with this procedure.
This method of liposuction is standard. A cannula or a thin wire is inserted and traversed through small incision. Suction is done through a vaccum device connected to the outer end connected to the cannula.
It is similar to the suction assisted procedure, but the cannula here is mechanized. So, the cannula has to be moved inward and outward using a machine. The controlled movement gives lesser injury causing to the internal organs.
Fat is loosened with a beam of water that is shaped as a fan, from the marked areas. Special cannula is then used to remove the fat.
It is also similar to the suction assisted procedure, with the difference that two cannulas are used inside the other, which move reciprocal with respect to the other. Such movement breaks down fat and also its aspirations. Sub-dermal and superficial fat can be removed through this procedure.
Laser is traversed through microcannula and it emulsifies the fat by its laser energy in the marked areas to suction out. The procedure results in less bleeding and bruising and the recovery will be faster.
This procedure is performed without cannula or incision, but through ultrasound vibration method from outside. It helps avoiding seromas and necrosis of the skin. Healing is faster and gives less discomfort to the candidate.
This is loposuction under local anesthesia given to the large subcutaneous fat volumes. It leads to less blood loss.
This procedure involves grafting or shifting of the fat.
- Skin necrosis
- Fat embolism
- Fluid imbalance
- Skin burns
- Internal organ puncture
- Toxicity to the medication
- Controur irregularities
If the candidate goes through the general anesthesia, a night stay is needed, otherwise can leave the same day from the hospital. Normal activities can be resumed after 2 weeks. In addition, the patient has to wear the compression garments from 2 to 4 weeks. The results are to be evident after 6 months.
