‘Fat’ makes you look fat.
Liposuction is getting that ‘Fat’ out of you, so that you don’t look fat.
So, what is liposuction?
Liposuction is a medical procedure used for cosmetic purposes. It shapes areas like abdomen, buttocks, thighs, calves, arms etc, by extracting fat under your skin using thin tubes.
It’s a popular practice!
Are you fat? If yes, does that make you eligible for liposuction? No. In fact, slim people opt for liposuction more often. Why? Because some flab areas upset the body appearance.
Can liposuction remove dangerous belly fat? Yes, it can.
*Just for the fact, liposuction is not a weight reducing technique. Want to lose weight? Get up, leave that sloppy bed or couch and run, exercise to death.
How is it done?
Consultation: A doctor’s consultation before the surgery is important. A health check-up may be required (a normal procedure). The physician checks for skin elasticity and fat placement on your body.
Liposuction procedure: If you are an ideal candidate, an apt liposuction procedure might be chosen. A physician helps you decide, which liposuction procedure you must opt for.
The Surgery: The doctor marks the area of the skin for the procedure. Anaesthesia is used to numb the area to be worked on. Different anaesthesia types are used for respective situations.
The cannula is inserted into the fat layers by making incisions (in case small incisions might be required). The Cannula loosens the fat, when it is moved to and fro. A vacuum device attached to the cannula, sucks the loosened fat, which is placed in the flask.
This process creates the gaps between the fat layers, which collapse to heal and take new shape.
*Tip: Wearing a compression garment after the surgery might be a good idea.
How to choose a good physician?
Experience: Look for experienced physicians. Research a bit. Make a list of best and ask for suggestions from friends, family, or neighbours. An experienced doctor has stable hands and advices you better on liposuction.
License: Unlicensed medical practitioners are not reliable and might not offer best results. Though, they don’t need any specific degree for liposuction yet a physician must have license to carry out medical procedures.
