All you need to know about fat reduction technique

Liposuction treatment in Gurgaon or lipoplasty is a cosmetic procedure for the removal of excess fat from specific parts of the body. It aims to remove fat deposits from the body which otherwise does not shed through diet and physical workout. Liposuction permanently removes fat cells from the body thereby, altering the overall appearance. The surgery is performed with the help of a hollow instrument known as cannula and aspirator. It is inserted under the skin. The surgery is usually carried out under general anesthesia.

According to researches, the liposuction procedure is on the rise from the past five years. According to statistics, around 18 million people have undergone the surgical procedure for liposuction. Around 258,558 liposuction surgeries were done in 2018. American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has ranked liposuction among the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures.

Am I the right candidate for Liposuction

Liposuction is not a procedure for weight-loss. An individual who wishes to undergo liposuction usually has a stable body weight but aims to remove undesirable deposits of body fat in various parts of the body. In the first place, every individual should try to reduce weight with a controlled diet and exercise to remain healthy. Besides, liposuction is surely not for those individuals who are overweight or obese. However, a good candidate for liposuction includes:

  • A person within 30% of his or her ideal weight who has firm and elastic skin A person with no life-threatening illness or medical condition that can obstruct in healing
  • A person who does not smoke
  • A person who does not consume tobacco-related products
  • A person with fat accumulation that doesn't go away with diet or exercise
  • A person with good skin elasticity and muscle tone
  • An individual with a positive attitude and specific goals for body enhancement

Besides, lipoplasty can prove to be beneficial for people having extreme weight loss after obesity, lipomas, lymphedema, gynecomastia and lipodystrophy syndrome. Gynecomastia is a condition in which male breast tissue swells due to a reduction in testosterone or male hormones or increased female hormones known as estrogen. The cause of gynecomastia includes puberty, aging, medication, and health conditions that affect hormones. However, gynecomastia surgery results are instantly visible. The swelling resolves and incision lines fade within three to six months after surgery.

Is liposuction used to treat obesity

Many a time, you might have come across some of the pre and post-procedure advertisements that show an obese person turned into a beach body. However, this is not reality. Through lipo, it is only possible to remove subcutaneous fat and not visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat is deposited below the epidermis layer of the skin. On the other hand, visceral fat accumulates inside the abdominal cavity and can cause serious health conditions which may be related to heart, blood pressure, obesity, etc.


What all areas can liposuction treat


The liposuction procedure is used to remove fat from various areas of the body that fail to respond to diet and exercise. The surgery can be used to treat fat accumulated around:

  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Calves and ankles
  • Chest and back
  • Hips and thighs
  • Neck
  • Chin

What is Smart Lipo

Smart lipo, also known as ultrasound liposuction is an advanced procedure for removing undesired body fat and tightening saggy skin. In this, a single fiber is introduced in the body through a small hollow device known as a cannula. Your doctor performs the surgery to melt the fat away removing stubborn fat deposits and reshaping the body. Ultrasound liposuction eliminates sagginess and gives you a youthful appearance. The recovery time of smart liposuction is short in general. One can resume his work and normal activities within two to three days after the treatment.

During the procedure, the area to be treated is filled with a medicated solution. The fat cells are then treated with ultrasound energy and are removed from the body through a gentle suction process. The surrounding tissues are left intact, giving you the smooth contours you want with less pain and recovery time than traditional liposuction.


How is the Smart Lipo different from the traditional Liposuction

Both the cosmetic procedures aim to remove unwanted fat from the body. However, there are certain points that you should be aware of:

Technique: In traditional liposuction, the cannula is inserted through the skin to suck out excess fat. While La Midas uses different medical technology in liposuction treatment in Gurgaon to yield the same result. It requires ultrasound energy assisted liposuction that makes use of gentle suction to remove fat. It liquefies unwanted fat which causes less bruising as compared to the traditional method.

Recovery Time: The recovery time of traditional liposuction is a longer than Smart lipo. In the case of traditional lipo, it may take up to six weeks while for smart lipo it takes hardly a couple of days to recover and get back to routine.

Minimally invasive body contouring: An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, Smart lipo is minimally invasive yet powerful enough to eliminate large areas of fat and gentle enough to treat more delicate areas.

Immediate and precise sculpting: Smart lipo removes visible amounts of fat immediately. Its a step-up from non-invasive procedures that rely on secondary reactions to reduce small amounts of fat over an extended time.

Treat Multiple Areas in a single procedure : Smart lipo can sculpt and shape multiple areas in a single procedure, including: jowls, chin and neck, abs, hips or love handles, male and female breasts, arms, back, buttocks or thighs, knees, calves or ankles.

Less Pain, Swelling and Downtime: Smart lipo is unique in its ability to target fat while leaving other important tissues intact, giving you the smooth contours you want with less pain and recovery time than traditional liposuction.

What should I know beforehand?

Before you decide to go for liposuction, consult with your surgeon. Talk about the risks and benefits along with the costs associated with the procedure. If you decide to get a lipo, your surgeon will instruct you on how to prepare for it. These may include diet and avoiding alcohol. Do let your doctor know about any allergies or medications that you take along with over-the-counter herbal supplements. Blood thinners and painkillers need to be avoided several weeks before surgery. Besides, you need to know the risks and side effects of liposuction.

The major concern associated with every surgery is the patient's loss of blood as well as the risk of infection. In case, anesthesia is used during surgery, there may be remote chances of its adverse reaction as well. The risks involved are usually linked with the complexity of the surgery which includes:

  • Bruising: Also known as ecchymosis. Blood or bleeding under the skin
  • Inflammation: Swelling may retain and fluid may continue to ooze from the incisions.
  • Thrombophlebitis: Blood clots may accumulate in veins causing inflammation.
  • Contour irregularities: If the skin is not elastic the wound heals in a usual manner. Also, if the fat removal is uneven, the appearance of the skin may be withered, wavy or bumpy.
  • Kidney and heart problems: During the surgery, the fluids are either injected or suctioned. The change in fluid levels of the body may cause kidney or heart-related problems.
  • Pulmonary embolism: The accumulated fat may enters the blood vessels and moves to the lungs.
  • Skin burns: The cannula movement may cause friction burns to skin.

Therefore the Smart lipo is the best’s really important to consult an expert cosmetic surgeon while considering liposuction as the best hands always lie in the hands of the practitioner.

What is the downtime of the Liposuction procedure

After the surgery, swelling usually subsides within a few days and the site appears less bulky. Depending on the type of surgery, your doctor would decide the period for your stay in the hospital. However, bruising, swelling, and soreness of the treatment site may last for at least a few weeks.

Your surgeon may ask you to wear a compression garment initially for one or two months after surgery to control swelling. You'll probably also need to take some antibiotics to prevent infection. Most people can return to work within a few days and get back to normal activities within two to three weeks in general.

The results of the procedure are usually long-lasting provided the person maintains his or her Health. Those who gain weight after the procedure may find variation in fat distribution. In general, it takes about two to three weeks to make a full recovery but the overall noticeable results might take up to six months.

Does Liposuction leave scars

The procedure of Liposuction may cause scarring. This is because your surgeon might need to make small incisions to extract fat from the target body. However, the scars are a few millimeters in size and are created at discrete locations. These scars fade away with time and gradually disappear completely. Certain medications can remove the visibility of scars entirely. Also, irritation may occur around the incision site and the occurrence of baggy or rippling skin is also possible as temporary side effects of the surgery. Therefore, it is advisable to avoid rubbing the incision area.

Another unfavorable outcome of liposuction is bruising and ecchymosis. This happens immediately after the procedure and may worsen within seven to ten days. Bruising generally goes away by two to four weeks post-surgery. In rare cases, bleeding may occur from superficial veins damaged due to the surgery.
