Liposuction - Say Bye-Bye to Unwanted Fat
Liposuction, or lipo, is a surgery that breaks up and sucks out fat from specific areas in the body. It is the process of eliminating pockets of excess fat that accumulate on the flanks, abdomen, thighs, chin, neck, buttocks, backs of the arms, calves and other areas of the body. During the procedure, the body fat is removed through a hollow instrument - a cannula - which is inserted under the skin. Most people use liposuction to achieve more visually pleasing body contours. This makes it one of the most in demand plastic surgery techniques.
Who is it For
Liposuction is mainly used to improve how a person looks, rather than providing any physical health benefits. The ideal candidate is a person in excellent health and has deposits of fat that have not responded to diet or exercise. The procedure must be followed by a healthy lifestyle - balanced diet, regular exercise, and a healthy sleep schedule - for long lasting effect.
How Does it Work
When a person gains weight, fat cell increases in size and volume. Liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in the isolated areas. The procedure is recommended if the person does not achieve the desired results with a lifestyle change. For example, if some areas of fat are resistant to exercise and diet.
Who can't do it!
- Nursing or pregnant women
- People with healing problems
- Allergic to lidocaine, which is used in the liposuction procedure
What it can do
Liposuction cannot eliminate stretch marks and cellulite from the skin. The treatment removes small, localized concentrations of fat. Ideally, the candidate should already be close to a healthy weight but wants to perform subtle body contouring.
