Liposuction is an invasive procedure used to improve body contour by removing areas of fat that've been resistant to diet and exercise. It is the most innovative and fast way to better results.
Are you a candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction can't help with generalized obesity, intra-abdominal fat, or excess loose skin. Some people with bulging tummies hope that liposuction can help but find out that almost all of the excess fat is "inside" the abdomen, wrapped around the intestines. Liposuction can't help in that instance.
People who are moderately overweight can benefit from liposuction, and there are no absolute age limits. However, older patients usually have diminished skin elasticity and therefore may not receive an optimal result.
You can definetely NOT do liposuction if:
- you have pneumonia, hepatitis, tuberculosis, heart hipertension, diabetes etc;
- you have cancer of any kind;
- you have psycological disorders;
- you are pregnant.
How liposuction is done?
Once the anesthesia is working, the physician will make an incisionin the area where the liposuction will be performed. A canula, a hollow tube that is about the size and shape of a skinny pen, will be inserted into the incision. The physician moves this canula back and forth to suction out the fat. That is what the classical way of liposuction. Another and more progressive way differs in the way that a special medicated liquid is brought into incisions, it urges lipic cells to dissolve and merge with the liquid itself, so the surgeon evacuates the liquid with fat through the probe. In either way only 3-6 litres of fat can be evacuated per one surgery. Every surgery is done under general anesthesiaalways.
Nowadays liposuction is considered an almost free-of-risk manipulation, stll it is a surgery and the results are not immediate. For most individuals Vremya Krasoty recommends they take about a week off of work. For patients having small amounts of liposuction they may only need 2-3 days. Swelling usually starts to go away in earnest at about 7-10 days after surgery and patients look good in clothes by this time. Stitches are removed 6-7 days after liposuction.
As far as strenuous activity is concerned, patients should start to ramp up into their prior workout routine at about two weeks - being careful not to cause discomfort. Most patients are back to full speed by 6-8 weeks after surgery even though their swelling will be reducing for probably 3-5 months. Bruising is rarely an issue after two weeks following surgery, though for better results additional methods of rehabilitation are used - consult your Vremya Krasoty aesthetician to discuss them.
The results usually become final within 6 months from the surgery.
Other methods of liposuction
In recent years, improved techniques have made liposuction safer, easier, and less painful. These newer techniques include:
A local anesthetic is used to numb the area of your body where the tube will be inserted. Next, a large amount of an anesthetic solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine is injected into the fatty tissue before traditional liposuction is done. Tumescent liposuction may not require general anesthesia (which makes you sleep through the procedure.
This technique uses ultrasound to liquefy the fat, which makes it easier to remove. This technique may be particularly helpful in removing fat from the upper abdomen, sides, and back.
This technique uses low-energy waves to liquefy the fat, which is removed through a small cannula.
Why Vremya Krasoty clients often choose laser liposuction?
The procedure of laser liposuction is quite different from traditional surgical methods. Actually this kind of laser lipo doesn’t need any forms of suction. Microscopic incisions are essential in this operation.
The choice of laser lipolysis surgeon is quite vital. You can rely on your doctor. Bring with you a copy of your medical records when you go to your doctor’s free consultation. Important surgery subjects are also concerned here like the duration of the surgery and its cost. Anesthesia is crucial to all surgical treatments. The incision is as small as a needle injection. This incision is where the laser probes will be inserted to liquefy surplus fat. The liquefied fat is also drained through the similar incision. You will detect notable improvements in less than two months with laser lipo. These huge advantages (+ the scars are much less visible, no complications, partial anaestasia) make clients consider it more and more often.
How liposuction prices are summed up?
The surgical fees usually represent the prices for lipo surgery of each individual area. For example, the total cost for liposuction of the hips, outer thighs and buttocks might be the sum of the surgical fees for hips, outer thighs, and buttocks, plus non-surgical fee for pre-surgery services. Each price is discussed individually with the client and is based on her necessities and desires.
