Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery to break and suck out the unwanted fat from different parts of the body. The fat is extracted through a hollow instrument known as a cannula. This instrument is inserted under the skin with the aid of a high-pressure and a powerful vacuum to remove the fat deposition. This treatment has become one of the most common cosmetic procedures all around the world. However, not everybody can undergo this procedure as people with stable weight are the ideal candidates to remove undesirable body fat.
At Inform Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics we use the latest techniques which ensure optimum results for even the small areas like arms and double chin. So, unlike the popular belief that liposuction is only for abdominal fat, it can be successfully performed for various body parts.
Globally, liposuction is one of the most preferred body contouring procedures for the following areas:
Double Chin - As we all know, double chin refers to excess fat deposition under the chin area. This causes a fold between chin and neck thus making it seem like the person has two chins. A double chin can be commonly found in overweight people as well as in people with normal weight. Liposuction can help one to achieve sharp cheekbones by getting rid of the excess fat. Ultimately, it improves the angle of definition between the chin and neck giving one a slimmer & chiseled profile.
Abdomen - Liposuction is performed in the abdominal area as fat stored here is stubborn and hard to lose with diet and exercise. This procedure can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to give that contoured profile to the entire body. Such as lipo-abdominoplasty where liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) are performed together to eliminate excess fat, loose skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. So, this is exactly what one needs for a flat tummy!
Breasts Reduction - The breasts can be significantly reduced with liposuction. However the general shape of breasts and nipple position will remain the same after the procedure. If someone desires for a total reshaping of the breasts, then the procedure can be performed along with breast surgery to enable repositioning & reshaping.
Males suffering from pseudo-gynecomastia i.e. chest swelling due to excess fat deposition can also undergo liposuction. This provides them with a flat and more masculine chest. However, if gynecomastia occurs due to growth in glandular tissues, excision would be required.
Flanks or Love Handles - Fat can get stored in the love handles due to multiple causes such as aging, pregnancy, hormonal changes, genetic predisposition or simply due to weight gain. Since many of these factors responsible for love handles cannot be controlled by diet or exercise, liposuction is an amazing solution to banish this fat.
Thighs - Many people have excess fat deposits on their outer thighs or "saddlebags" which can be quite distressing for a person as it affects their appearance making them look shorter and chubbier. The most common areas where liposuction on legs performed are the outer thighs, inner thighs, the front of the thighs and around the knees. When liposuction is performed on the outer thighs, it often involves liposuction of the outer buttocks too.
Liposuction improves appearance and self confidence of a person post procedure. People with a healthy lifestyle would definitely achieve better results. One should discuss all the aspects of liposuction with their plastic surgeon before proceeding onto the surgery. At Inform Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics, this procedure is performed by well-experienced plastic surgeons with utmost precision so that the patients can achieve a satisfying result.
