Body Fat Reduction Surgery or Liposuction is an esthetic surgery that safely, effectively and permanently removes excess fat from a particular area of your body, thereby, giving it a natural and sleeker silhouette.

Liposuction is a targeted cosmetic procedure that eliminates undesired fat from areas like thighs, hips, abdomen, buttocks, breasts, arms and chin that you haven’t been able to get rid of through exercise, diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Appearances matter! A person’s physical appearance has a huge impact on his/her life’s experiences and opportunities. We all strive to look and feel our best. However, at times, although we follow a healthy lifestyle, sleep well and exercise, we are unable to get rid of fat in certain areas of our body!

In these cases, Liposuction can help!

Liposuction permanently removes undesirable fat, enhances physical appearances, boosts confidence and improves self-esteem.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that breaks up and “sucks” fat from a particular area of the body using a suction tool called “cannula”.

This surgery is also called Lipoplasty, Liposculpture Suction and Lipectomy.

Liposuction is neither an overall weight-loss solution nor a treatment for obesity. This treatment is not to remove cellulite, dimples, or stretch marks. The aim of this surgery is purely esthetic!

Who is it for?

An ideal candidate for this surgery is one who is looking to remove fat from a particular area of their body that has not shifted through exercise and diet or is a result of a medical condition.

Liposuction is only recommended for individuals who have a stable body weight, lead a healthy lifestyle and have no medical conditions like coronary diseases, diabetes, restricted blood flow or a weak immune system.

Why is it done?

In addition to corrective cosmetic purposes, Liposuction is also suggested for,

  • Gynecomastia: Enlargement of breast tissues in males.
  • Lymphedema: A swelling caused by a build-up of fluid (Lymph) in soft tissues due to damages or blockages in the Lymphatic system.
  • Lipomas: A benign fatty tumor that grows just beneath the skin.
  • Extreme weight loss in a morbidly obese individual may result in excess skin and other abnormalities that must be removed.

What are the types of procedures available?

Tumescent Liposuction - Here, a large amount of sterile fluid is injected into the targeted area, causing the area to swell and stiffen. A thin tube attached to a vacuum is then inserted into the skin and the fat and fluid is sucked out.

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL) - This procedure uses a special cannula that vibrates and emits ultrasound energy. Once inserted, the thermal energy melts the fat cells that are eliminated through a smaller cannula with a gentle suction. This method causes minimal tissue trauma.

Laser Assisted Liposuction (LAL) - Here, a high-frequency laser light is used to melt excess fatty tissue that is gently sucked out. This technique is quick, less aggressive, offers improved skin retraction and results in a short recovery time

Like any medical surgery, Liposuction, also has a few risks involved. We at Dr ---------, believe in taking all the necessary precautions and only recommend the surgery after weighing the pros and cons with our esteemed clientele.
