Liposuction Procedure

The word "liposuction" derives from the Greek word lípos- fat and the English word - suction. Liposuction is a modern plastic surgery procedure during which a certain amount of fatty tissue is removed through small punctures on the skin using special medical equipment (cannulas, hollow needles, and suction). The procedure aims to improve and enhance body contouring. The most common areas where liposuction is performed includes hips, knees, abdomen, back and chin in women; chin, chest and abdomen in men.

Who Needs Liposuction?

Liposuction surgery is required by the people facing severe discomfort due to adipose tissue accumulation in certain places and violation of the figure's contours. Moreover, before the age of eighteen, such a procedure is not recommended since the body is not entirely formed, and fat can be reduced without diet and operations.

Before proceeding with the liposuction surgery, a plastic surgeon performs an initial inspection of the patient, recommends basic tests: ECG, general, biochemical blood, urine tests and fluorography. In addition, before surgery, the doctor must select a compression garment for the patient in advance, as well as decide on the anaesthesia method. If the patient is a regular smoker, then two weeks before the procedure, he should refrain from smoking.

Classical liposuction surgery is a rather extensive and traumatic experience, and it is recommended to use general anaesthesia. However, if there are minimal problem areas ("second" chin, cheeks) and isolated, the doctor can also use local anaesthesia.

When is Liposuction Necessary?

  • If the person wants to get clearer and smoother contours on their body.
  • If the person is suffering from excess fatty deposits that are out of proportion from the rest of the body and cannot be removed with the help of exercise.
  • If the person's skin is sufficiently elastic, then with the help of liposuction surgery, it is possible to remove an excess amount of fatty deposits without the requirement of skin excision. If the patient's skin has already lost its elasticity, then this procedure is best combined with other popular surgical operations.

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

  • After fat removal surgery, the body becomes slimmer, there is better ease of movement, as well as the person, can choose to wear clothes that were previously "unfit".
  • It allows recreating the harmonious curves of the waist, hips, buttocks.
  • Does not leave the patient with noticeable scars, unlike, for example, surgical tightening procedures.
  • The patient is under the influence of anaesthesia for much less time, unlike other procedures. In addition, doctors can also perform liposuction surgery using local anaesthesia.
  • Short rehabilitation period.

Indications and Contraindications for the Procedure

Liposuction can be performed on both men and women who want to eliminate local fatty accumulations that cannot be removed in other ways. To have a noticeable positive effect, this procedure is recommended for those whose overall weight does not exceed 30% of the norm.

A lot of people wonder if abdominal liposuction is dangerous. The liposuction procedure can easily lead to complications if performed in the presence of contraindications. To prevent such occurrences, a specialist prescribes a diagnosis in advance (in particular, blood tests, urine tests, coagulogram). In addition, the relative and absolute contraindications for surgical intervention are noted:

  • pregnancy and lactation
  • malignant tumours (regardless of location
  • blood diseases (anaemia, poor clotting)
  • tendency to keloid scarring
  • renal or hepatic impairment
  • pathology of an infectious nature
  • deviations from the endocrine system (thyroid disease)
  • serious pathologies of the cardiovascular system.

How is Liposuction Performed?

During the initial phase, many patients want to know how the liposuction of the abdomen and other parts of the body will be performed. Similar to other procedures, liposuction needs preparation, organization and recovery period.

In the first step, the plastic surgeon has a consultation with the patient. The doctor identifies the affected areas and plans the surgery. However, before fat removal surgery, it is recommended that the patient must undergo several tests.

While performing the surgery, the plastic surgeons make small punctures on the problem area. With the help of these holes, they introduce cannulas, which helps him liquefies and, under the influence of surgical vacuum, eliminate subcutaneous deposits. Moreover, there are no incisions in the skin, so there is no need to apply stitches.

The doctor recommends wearing special corrective underwear to achieve an optimal result from the surgery and reduce postoperative risks. Rehabilitation takes around two weeks.

What are the limitations of Liposuction?

The main limitation of the procedure is that if the skin quality is poor and lacks elasticity, once the underlying fat is sucked out of the skin, it cannot retract to take up the slack, the skin may hang in an ugly redundant fold.

Another limitation is judging the exact amount of fat to remove. If too little fat is removed, the bulge will remain (though will obviously be smaller). If too much fat is taken, a permanent dent will remain. It is fairly simple to go back and take a little more fat away, but much harder to put fat back in. For this reason, I usually err on the side of caution and would much rather leave a little too much fat in than take too much away.
