Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures on the planet. Doubt it? Even ISAPS, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, has given it the crown of the most requested treatment procedure across all continents. Everyone-world figures, celebrities, young, old, man, woman, from all walks of life- they are all seeking it out. Why? Because of its benefits. So, what happens during liposuction?
Art in Surgery
Liposuction is basically involves removing excess fat from the body. ‘Sucking it out’ per se. Sure, it has its health benefits-but that is just part of the reason people are flocking in line for it.
Accordig to a Vegas plastic surgeon Dr. Joffrey
“Liposuction is an art of body contouring. That’s right-the fat is removed surgically and masterfully to give you the desired body shape. So yes, you can get rid of that lump of fat that refuses to go away despite countless visits to the gym.”
The Liposuction Procedure
This cosmetic surgery can be carried out on numerous parts of the body. These range from the neckline and region under the chin, to the chest, upper arms, breasts and the abdomen, to the back, thighs buttocks, inner knees and even the hips. It is done on men and women alike.
Granted, there are various techniques of liposuction. These are the likes of the traditional dry liposuction and the modern methods of ultrasound, tumescent and laser-assisted liposuction. However, all of them are geared to removing just the right amount of fat.
Liposuction-Fast, Precise and Effective
Usually the procedure is done on women’s thighs and abdomen, and men’s sides and abdomen. Liposuction in itself is a fast procedure that can last a few minutes to a few hours. It’s one of those ‘lunch time procedures’ because of how fast it’s carried out. The span of time is determined by how large the area under treatment is.
Due to its short duration, liposuction is often carried out as an outpatient procedure. No need for an overnight stay at the hospital. That is, unless there are large volumes of fat being removed or one has been put under a general anesthetic. Those who have received local anesthesia can go home on the same operation day. Just be sure to follow simple instructions like avoiding any driving for at least a day.
Liposuction is fast and effective- the reason why some say it’s cheating the natural order. After all, you get lean and fit without putting much effort into it. That’s the advantage of Science. Your only task is to lie on the surgeon’s table and having your excess fat taken from you. Be that as it may, you have to take some precautions for the procedure to be fully effective. Watch your diet and lifestyle, and you’ll be sure to enjoy the benefits of the operation for years after the procedure.
