LIPOSUCTION GOOD OF BAD?

What is liposuction?

A surgical operation called liposuction employs a suction technique to remove fat from particular body parts, such as the belly, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or neck. Additionally, liposuction contours (shapes) these areas. Liposuction is also known as lipoplasty and body sculpting.

Liposuction isn't often seen as an all-encompassing weight-loss technique or a weight-loss substitute. If you are overweight, bariatric procedures like gastric bypass surgery or diet and exercise will certainly help you lose more weight than liposuction will.

If you have a steady body weight overall but have excess body fat in some areas, you might be a candidate for liposuction.

Why people do it?

Using liposuction, fat can be removed from body parts that haven't responded to diet and exercise, such the:

Hips

Thighs

Abdomen

Buttocks

Arms

Chest and Back

In addition, liposuction can occasionally be performed to treat gynecomastia or reduce the size of the breasts.

The volume and size of fat cells expand when you put on weight. Liposuction thus lowers the quantity of fat cells in a certain region. The volume of fat and the area's appearance both influence how much fat is eliminated. As long as your weight doesn't fluctuate, the subsequent shape modifications are typically irreversible.

The skin adapts to the changing shapes of the treated areas after liposuction. The skin will probably appear smooth if your skin is elastic and has good tone. However, the skin in the treated regions may appear loose if you have thin, poorly elastic skin.

Cellulite dimpling or other abnormalities of the skin's surface are not improved by liposuction. Similar to liposuction, stretch marks cannot be eliminated.

You must be in good health and free from any problems that could make surgery more difficult, such as impaired blood flow, coronary artery disease, diabetes, or a weakened immune system, to be a candidate for liposuction.

IS IT RISKY?

Liposuction carries hazards like bleeding and anaesthetic response, much like any major surgery. Possible liposuction-specific side effects include:

Imperfections in the contour due to unequal fat removal, lack of skin elasticity, and atypical healing, your skin may appear bumpy, wavy, or withered. These modifications could be long-lasting. The tiny tube (cannula) used during liposuction may cause damage beneath the skin, resulting in persistent spots on the skin.

Buildup of fluid, Seromas, transient pockets of fluid, can develop beneath the skin. A needle may be required to remove this fluid.

Numbness in the affected area may become temporarily or permanently numb. Additionally conceivable is transient nerve irritation.

Skin infections are uncommon but conceivable. A serious skin infection could endanger your life.

Internal laceration Rarely, an internal organ may be punctured by a cannula that penetrates too deeply. This might need an urgent surgical fix.

Obese embolism which means, fat that has gotten looser may fragment, get caught in a blood vessel, collect in the lungs, or move to the brain. A medical emergency is a fat embolism.

Heart and kidney issues also in the line. Changes in fluid levels as fluids are injected and suctioned out can result in kidney, heart, and lung issues that could be fatal.

Toxicity of lidocaine, When performing liposuction, lidocaine is frequently injected along with fluids to help manage pain. Despite being typically harmless, lidocaine poisoning can happen in rare instances and result in severe cardiac and central nervous system issues.

If the surgeon does many treatments simultaneously or works on greater portions of your body, the chance of problems rises. How these risks affect you should be discussed with your physician.

PRECAUTION

Talk with your surgeon in advance of the procedure about what to anticipate from the surgery. In addition to reviewing your medical history, your surgeon will inquire about any existing diseases, drugs, dietary supplements, and herbal supplements you might be using.

Prior to surgery, your surgeon may advise you to cease taking specific medications, such as NSAIDs or blood thinners. Before your procedure, you might also need to obtain a few lab tests.

Surgery can be performed in an office setting if only a modest quantity of fat needs to be removed for your operation. The surgery may be performed in a hospital, followed by an overnight stay, if a significant amount of fat is to be removed or if you intend to have other procedures done concurrently. In either instance, make plans for someone to pick you up from the procedure, drive you home, and stay with you for at least the first night.
