It is summertime already and your beach body is not yet ready? We have all been there. There is no harm in becoming a member of the Koala family and laze around in the winter, but now it is summer all too soon and you are feeling body-conscious all of a sudden. 

New trends and beauty standards are evolving day by day. Getting a beautiful body has a different meaning now. A slim body is not the goal nowadays. People are obsessed with getting a healthy body, looking as much like an ‘hourglass’ as possible. Dieting to lose weight no longer works. People are eating healthier to maintain a stable weight according to their body’s body mass ratio.

Sometimes though, no matter how hard you try, your body may never look a certain way. Everybody is different, and what some people can acheive in a few months, other people may take years to reach. Instead of any extreme forms of dieting, or exercising, which are going to be harmful to your body in the long run, why don’t you relax and opt for easier methods to reach your goal? Yes yes, we know that there is a stigma surrounding cosmetic treatments. But this is the 21st century, trust medical science to solve your problems. 

Yes, getting liposuction can be scary if you do not have any idea about the whole thing. So, let us see what exactly is liposuction and how does it work? Liposuction is an advanced body contouring procedure which is used to remove extra fat from hard-to-reach places. The abdomen, flanks, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, and back and under chin region are the parts liposuction is frequently targeted.

Now, you may ask how effective is liposuction in fat removal? Well, liposuction is a surgical or invasive procedure that uses a long hollow tube known as a cannula. The cannula is placed under the skin into the fat layer. Suction is then used through the cannula to remove fat pockets that have been identified. This fat can also be transferred to other places of the body through a surgery called fat transfer. Other parts of the body, such as the face and buttocks, can benefit from fat transfer.

The amount of fat you intend to eliminate by liposuction is likely to differ from one person to another. Perhaps you’re thinking about liposuction to slim your waistline or to complement a breast augmentation treatment. Some people may want to completely modify their body contour with liposuction surgery.

The maximum quantity of fat that can be safely removed from the body during traditional liposuction is 5 litres per session, according to a standard guideline. This limitation applies regardless of your weight, body fat percentage, or intended outcome.

When you reach your late adolescent years, your body has reached its maximum number of fat cells. These fat cells can only ever grow or contract in size. Liposuction destroys fat cells from the treatment region permanently. This means you can’t store fat as much in the treated area. This does not, however, stop you from gaining weight in other areas. To keep your results, stick to a balanced diet and exercise routine.

The treatment begins with a microscopic incision in the skin. The treatment area is then injected with a local tumescent anaesthetic solution that is infused beneath the epidermis and into the fat layer. This solution is made up of saline, local anaesthetic, and adrenaline.

Adrenaline assists in the reduction of bleeding, bruising, and oedema. The tumescent fluid swells the fatty layer, allowing the cannula to pass through easily. In a methodical and recurring operation, the cannula is passed through the fat layer, eliminating fat. Suction is applied using a machine or a syringe to aid in fat removal.

Here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, our experts use dissolvable threads to seal liposuction incision sites when necessary. Because these stitches are hidden beneath the skin, they provide perfect looks and have a lesser risk of scarring. 

After the surgery, you will have to wear a compression garment for some time between 3 – 6 weeks, depending on the healing rate, and it helps prevent swelling and bruising, and, most significantly, it helps the skin retract and tighten following the fat removal.

There are numerous varieties of liposuction available nowadays, which can be confusing and distracting from the two most critical components of the liposuction procedure. The aesthetics and the safety. New forms of liposuction are frequently developed as technology advances.
