What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a minimal incision cosmetic plastic surgery that removes excess fat deposits from different areas of the body. It improves body contours and proportions by slimming and reshaping specific body areas. This ultimately enhances your self-image.

Liposuction effectively  treats stubborn fat pockets in many parts of the body, which are resistant to diet and exercise. These include thighs, hips, waist,  inner knee, calves, ankles, back, chest, arms, neck, cheeks and chin. Some people have body contours which are out of proportion due to localized fat deposits. This may run in families and be present in  spite of maintaining reasonable fitness and good weight control. Such people benefit immensely after liposuction.

Liposuction can be performed alone or along with other plastic cosmetic surgery like abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), facelift, necklift and breast reduction.

What Liposuction will not achieve:
Liposuction surgery is not a treatment for obesity. It is not a replacement for regular exercise and good eating habits. Individuals with stubborn pockets of fat, which do not go away even after exercising regularly, are the best candidates for this procedure.

 Ideal Candidates for Liposuction are:

About Body Fat:
Body fat is usually located between the skin and the muscles. Blood vessels that supply the skin and nerve endings that provide sensation to the skin are present within this body fat. This layer of fat serves as an energy bank, where excess calories are stored. The amount of fat depends on family traits, body type and lifestyle factors like exercise and diet.

Preparation for Liposuction:
We carefully mark the body areas to be sculpted by liposuction and use these marks as a guide. Liposuction may be done under local anesthesia, where only the surrounding area is numb. It may be done under general anesthesia for procedures involving large areas or multiple areas of the body, by putting patients into deep sleep. Tumescent fluid is put in first to expand the tissues, making it easier to remove fat cells, while still numbing the treatment area and minimizing bleeding.  

Liposuction Surgery Details :

Very short (2-3 mm) incisions are made along natural creases or in hidden or inconspicuous areas of the body. These also depend upon the location of the procedure. We insert small tube-like devices, called cannula, through these incisions. We perform repeated forward and backward motions, creating small tunnels in the fat layer, while removing the fat with suction. The tunnels collapse over the next few weeks, resulting in new contours in the specific treatment areas. The incisions may be closed with sutures or may be left open.

Pain, bruising, and swelling after the procedure is normal. They typically subside over the next several days. You need to wear a special compression garment for a few weeks to provide support, minimize swelling, and help the skin conform to the new contours of the body. You may generally notice an improvement in your appearance very soon after the procedure. Your new contours will gradually improve over the next 3 - 6 months. The tunnels collapse and the reduced healthy layer of fat settles down. Most importantly, the excess skin contracts back to its earlier shape. It is very important to continue wearing the compression garment during this period to get the best possible results.

Liposuction Costs:
The costs of liposuction includes surgeons' fees; hospital or surgical facility costs; anesthesia costs; medicine costs; post-surgery compression garments costs & costs of medical tests. Thus, the costs can fluctuated depending on the hospital facility chosen, the instruments utilized, body areas where liposuction is performed and type of anesthesia necessary for performing liposuction. Ultimately, your satisfaction after a well performed liposuction is much more precious than the price paid for liposuction - infact, it is 'priceless '.

Liposuction Results:
All fat cells are permanently removed during liposuction in the areas where it is performed. It is important to realize that liposuction does not prevent growth of remaining fatty tissues. With realistic expectations and proper maintenance, you can be satisfied with the results of your liposuction procedure for many years.

Most of the swelling disappears within a few days. It may take several weeks for the swelling to completely disappear after liposuction. During this period, your new contours and enhanced self-image should continue to develop.

The sense of fulfillment after the initial results of liposuction may continue life long if you control your weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The slimmer and better-proportioned body following a liposuction would reflect your healthy and active life.
