• Liposuction

Liposuction is a simple & safe surgical procedure involving bare minimum risks and chances of error. Depending on the extent of the liposuction, patients are generally able to return to work or school between two days and two weeks. Anybody healthy and having tried exercise, dieting but failed, can undergo liposuction. A session of liposuction may include more than one site, for instance, the abdomen, flanks, back, and thighs all on the same day. The best part is that these specific areas like lower belly, neck, and conditions like gynecomastia or male breasts, can be treated on a day care basis and individual can be at their home after 3-4 hrs without wasting the resources of individual or attendants.

Liposuction or Liposculpting

Excess deposit of fat can be removed by easily by liposuction and it is one of the commonest cosmetic surgery procedure performed nowadays. It effectively removes fat that cannot be lost by diet or exercise. Liposuction is particularly well-suited for men and women who are of relatively normal weight or a little overweight, but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear disproportionate. These localised fat deposits may sometimes be an inherited trait (like lower belly & flanks of Indian females) and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. Though liposuction is usually not done to reduce the weight in grossly overweight person; however, depending on the amount of fat sucked, 5-15% weight reduction of total weight can be achieved. In addition, the fat cells that are removed are gone forever. Generally eight to ten litres of fat can be reduced by liposuction. The procedure is done under local or general anaesthesia and you may need to be hospitalized for a day. Follow up for two weeks is expected.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction assumes utmost importance for Indians considering their genetic predisposition to typical patterns of weight gain like Double chin, Belly Bags, Saddle Bags or Hip Bags. While every patient who goes in for a consultation will be individually assessed to determine if they are healthy enough to undergo surgery, there are some conditions that could indicate that liposuction is right for you:

  • You have areas of fat deposits that are out of proportion with the rest of your body and do not go away with diet and exercise
  • Your skin elasticity is good – there is not a lot of excess skin and the area is firm (liposuction removes fat, not skin)
  • You wish there was more definition in certain areas of your body or a sleeker contour.

Liposuction is reportedly also beneficial in overweight diabetic patients also wherein excessive weight gain poses a greater demand for insulin and thus deteriorating the physical condition of the patient. In fact, loss of fat or weight by liposuction can tremendously help the diabetics since weight is reduced, insulin resistance is decreased; this all is obtained by minimal incisions, least chances of infection and remotest probability of weight gain.

Your Recovery

You will be discharged from the hospital on the same day of surgery or in the next morning. You have to take some medications by mouth & need to wear elasticated pressure garments for 6- 12 weeks (continuously for initial seven days and most of the time after that).
