Liposuction Chennai

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure wherein the fat accumulated in an area is removed by suctioning. The procedure is not assessed by the amount of reduction in Kilograms but the ultimate contour attained by inch loss. Therefore diet and exercise become mandatory to maintain the results achieved by liposuction. Liposuction could be performed to any body part like the cheek/double chin/arms/ Breast Surgery /abdomen/back/thighs/legs etc Multiple areas could be combined in the same sitting.

Liposuction Surgery for single area could be performed under local anesthesia but when multiple areas are combined general anesthesia is preferred. The technique used commonly is called tumescent technique. In this method saline containing Adrenalin(to reduce blood loss) and local anesthesia is injected into the area to be sucked out. Fat is then aspirated using cannulas (tubular instrument) without or with assistance of power (Microaire)/Ultrasonic waves (lysonix/vaser)/laser(smartlipo/cool touch).

Liposuction is commonly performed as a day care procedure wherein the patient could be discharged six hours after the procedure.

It is common to notice skin discoloration(Echhymosis) after liposuction which usually disappears over six weeks. Patchy areas of numbness would be felt over the liposucked area. Edema (Swelling due to accumulation of fluid) would be present upto two weeks after surgery. Noticeable inch loss would be evident after all the edema settles. Scars less than one cm in size would remain at the port site.

  • Dressing is avoided from getting wet until further orders
  • On the 2nd postoperative day the entire dressing is changed and a compression girdle is fitted before counteracts swelling and pain and to help adapt the skin to the changed contours of the body.

  • We recommend training in the gym after liposuction. A "top body" or "washboard stomach" can normally only be achieved by liposuction incombination with strenuous physical training, not by liposuction alone

With the help of liposuction, fat cells are permanently removed. Since the fat cells do not grow back, liposuction treatment produces a permanent effect.However, further changes to the shape of the body are possible. The results of the operation are dependent on the patient's general health, the condition of the skin, the patient's age and weight, and the hormonal content of the body, among other things. In particular, significant weight gain caused by nutrition will result in the layer of adipose tissue increasing again even in the treated area, as the remaining fat cells will fill out .Occasionally, wavelike unevenness or dimples become visible on the surface of the skin, but these usually reduce again within 6months.

As with all aesthetic procedures, corrective operations may be necessary if the results of the treatment do not meet the patient's expectations or if an unsatisfactory aesthetic result is produced because of wound-healing disturbances, infections, postoperative bleeding, etc.
