What is Liposuction?
Are you suffering from stubborn fat which is difficult to lose? Here is a solution for everyone who is not only overweight but suffering from stubborn fat. The meaning of the word “liposuction” is lipo meaning fat and suction meaning removal. The liposuction procedure is a simple procedure where the unwanted body fat is removed to improve your body appearance and to smooth irregular body shapes.
There are two types of liposuction :
1.) Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) uses ultrasonic vibrations to turn the fat cells into liquid. The technique may help to remove fat from dense, fibre filler (fibrous) areas of the body like the upper back or enlarged male breast tissue.
2.) Laser-assisted Liposuction (LAL) uses laser energy to liquefy fat cells. After the cells are liquefied, they can be vacuumed out or allowed to drain out. This is the most common type of liposuction.
These six steps will help you go the procedure smoothly with effective results:-
Step 1: Consult the specialist surgeon to let you know how many session will be required to lose that stubborn fat from the body which has taken a couple of years or months to accumulate. Normally 6 – 8 sessions for 45 minutes to 60 minutes will suffice for the procedure but again may differ depending on consultation with an expert.
Step 2: Our surgical team prepares the area of the body fat which needs to be treated by informing you about diet and alcohol restrictions. Your doctor will mark the areas of the body that will be treated and take before and after photos and measurements to show you the difference and the results of the treatment.
Step 3: Local anaesthesia may be required which means that you will awake during the procedure but not feel the pain. The laser technique does not require any local anaesthesia. A local anaesthetic cooling gel can be applied to the local area which will also help that particular area to denumb so that you do not experience any kind of skin irritation during the procedure which generates the heat waves.
Step 4: A device which helps in the melting the fat is placed on the particular or affected fatty area and is pressed with gentle pressure so that the heat waves along the affected area helps in liquefy the stubborn fats cells in that particular area. This not only dissolves the brown fat but also the white fat tissue cells.
Step 5: After the procedure is lasted for 1 hour depending on the consultation. The gel on the particular area is gently wiped off with the clean tissue and you are measured again to check how many centimetres or kilograms are lost and then compare.
Step 6: The last step to compare and maintain. A custom made diet plan on what you eat and follow depending on the nutritious elements required in the food is suggested by the expert for you to follow and maintain the next step of weight loss so the session yield some effective results every time you step in for follow up treatment for the liposuction procedure.
