What are the benefits of liposuction?

Liposuction can eliminate small deposits of fat from stubborn areas unresponsive to diet and exercise.The re-contouring effects of the procedure are often so dramatic that it looks as though more weight has been lost. Liposuction benefits are often more than aesthetic. Many patients are able to partake in activities they had previously avoided because of their appearance, and most report an increase in their confidence.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

You are a good candidate for liposuction if you are at or near your normal weight. People with localized areas of fat see the most dramatic results. Patients with firm, elastic skin will find that the skin fits easier to their reduced contour. There is no age limit for liposuction though older patients may have lesser skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin.

What does the liposuction procedure involve?

Liposuction is always performed in the operation theater at Karishma Cosmetic & Laser Centre. Most patients walk out of the clinic on the same day itself. In some cases, patients may need to spend a night at the clinic.

If only a small amount of fat and a limited number of body sites are involved, liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia, which numbs only the affected areas. Some patients prefer general anesthesia, particularly if a large volume of fat is being removed.

Different techniques of liposuction at Karishma

The basic technique of liposuction is same in all cases but variations have been made by surgeons to improve the ease of the procedure and to enhance outcome.

The technology for all these techniques is available at Karishma Cosmetic and Laser Clinic. The best technique suited to you will be advised by Dr Sanghvi during the initial consultation.

1)Tumescent technique of liposuction . . .

The most basic and common technique is the Tumescent liposuction technique. In this procedure, a large amount of saline solution is injected through tiny incisions into the area to be treated. A narrow tube or cannula is inserted to vacuum the fat layer that lies deep beneath the skin. The cannula is pushed and then pulled through the fat layer, breaking up the fat cells and suctioning them out.

2)Super-wet technique of liposuction . . .

Super-wet liposuction is similar to tumescent liposuction, but less fluid is injected into the treatment area. The saline fluid separates fat from muscle, making it easier for the liposuction surgeon to remove fat. This procedure takes longer than basic liposuction because the saline fluid must percolate before fat removal can begin.

3)Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction . . .

This technique is performed with the help of a special cannula that produces ultrasonic energy. As this cannula passes through the areas of fat, the energy explodes the walls of the fat cells and liquefies the fat. The fat is then removed using the basic tumescent technique of liposuction.

What are post-operative expectations?

After surgery, you will most likely experience some fluid drainage from the incisions. To control swelling and to help your skin better fit its new contours, you may be fitted with a snug elastic compression garment to wear over the treated area for a few weeks upto 3 months.The stitches are removed or dissolve on their own within the first week to 10 days.

How long does it take to get back to normal activities?

You should be back to work or your normal activities within just a few days after surgery. Walking around as soon as possible will help reduce swelling. Though liposuction helps remove fat permanently it is important to know that it does not prevent additional weight gain. Hence in order to maintain the results you have achieved with liposuction, it will be important to watch your diet and follow a regular exercise routine like walking, aerobics or weight-training.

Frequently asked questions :

How long does liposuction take?

The most common technique of liposuction can take from 30 minutes to several hours depending on the extent of fat removal.

How big will the scars be?

The scars from liposuction are small (2 – 4mm) and unnoticeable.

Will liposuction get rid of cellulite?

Liposuction for cellulite removal is not completely effective, though it can diminish the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is caused by many factors, many of which liposuction cannot change: age, genetics, gender, and the thickness of your skin.

Will the fat come back after liposuction?

Liposuction removes the fat cells from specific areas of the body. These fat cells will not return; however, if the patient does not follow a healthy diet and exercise routine, the remaining fat cells could expand and lead to weight gain across all areas of the body. With a post- liposuction exercise and diet regimen, patients can maintain their slimmer figures.

When should I expect to see positive results following the liposuction procedure?

You will most likely notice some improvement after your liposuction surgery, but it will take four to six weeks for most of the swelling to subside. There will be a noticeable difference in your body contour almost immediately after liposuction surgery and a small amount of swelling that will continue to subside for a few months after. Your new contour will remain permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you gain weight after your liposuction surgery, the weight will distribute itself evenly throughout your body and will not settle in the same problem areas.

When can I go back to work?

When can I go back to work?Your return to work depends on how many areas of the body you had treated with liposuction. Some people may be able to return to work immediately, but most people take an average of four to seven days off before returning to their jobs or daily routine.

Can liposuction be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes but it depends on the medical condition of the patient and the amount of fat to be removed. Breast implant is a treatment normally conducted with liposuction.

Do you use the most up-to-date techniques?

Yes we do.

I am 45, so what can I expect after a liposuction surgery?

The success of the liposuction surgery depends on the elasticity of the skin. Elasticity is generally good in males but elasticity in females depends on skin tone.
