Liposuction (Body Shaping)
Liposuction (removal of excess fat by suctioning it with fine cannula), is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures being performed. Demanding lifestyle, sedentary habits and altered food habits invariably lead to disproportionate fat deposits. The excessive fat gradually makes us sick and leads to higher chances of developing diabetes, blood pressure, snoring (sleep apnea) and deranged lipid profile which in turn predisposes us for cardiac problems. This prevents us doing exercises too. If ignored excess fat leads to sagging and loosening of skin resulting in stretch marks. Localized fat deposits in certain body parts are difficult to remove of, even with exercises and dietary restrictions. Specific areas are abdomen, hips, saddle bags, thighs, buttocks, arms and chin in females and chest, abdomen and chin in males. If we go for diet and exercises, we lose fat over other areas but the stubborn fat in above mentioned areas stands out giving you more bulges. Liposuction removes this fat bringing back the beautiful contour and shape without any scar.
Purpose: To improve the contour of body, face, neck, arms, chest, tummy, buttocks, hips, saddle bags and legs. Liposuction is primarily meant to give you good shape. Weight loss will occur owing to fat removal, in proportionate to the quantity of fat removed.
Procedure: Before operation the bulges / fat deposits are accurately marked. Power assisted, VASER and laser liposuction is done after tumescence as per need and depending on the amount of fat to be aspirated. The fat is aspirated with fine cannula. Safely up to 5-10 liters can be removed, though in well selected cases even up to 15-20 liters (mega liposuction) can be removed under monitored care. This is a scar less procedure.
Duration of Procedure: 2 – 4 hrs.
Anesthesia: Regional / General
Recovery Time: Back to work within 7 – 14 days. Strenuous activities should be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks. You will be advised to wear a pressure garment for 4 to 8 weeks for the overlying skin to take shape.
