Liposuction is a surgical procedure which is used when there is no contraindication to remove the localized fat deposits in different parts of the body. Liposuction is performed successfully when the indication and techniques are adequate.
Keep in mind the following aspects which liposuction does not aim for because many people consider that it works for the following;
- It is in no way constitutes a treatment for obesity.
- It is not a substitute for a nutritional program for weight loss and nutritional rehabilitation.
- It does nor stabilize the weight. In fact, in these cases it should not be performed.
However, it is an excellent treatment for the removal of fat deposits that do not get removed with diet and exercise for people with no significantly being overweight, provided that they have proper hygiene habits.
Is liposuction a miracle treatment?
Absolutely not. This technique does not change anyone’s life, but it gives excellent results when it is not understood as a ‘full stop’ to weight loss but as a beginning. There are plastic surgeons who perform it, but first they explain to their patients that they should not be understood as a license to ‘misbehave forever’ but as a stimulus only and practice healthy eating, physical exercise, etc. to keep the results or else the results of liposuction may hardly be maintained.
What should be assessed before surgery?
On the first visit, an exhaustive medical history about lifestyle, diseases, medications, allergies, etc. should be performed to rule out the contraindications or special precautions to be taken and to assess whether it is possible to perform with maximum security. In addition, a detailed examination and measurement of the areas to be treated and the condition of the skin is done. It is an essential study because sometimes when there is large sagging skin, only liposuction cannot get a good result and the patient may need to go through the other procedures such as a tummy tuck to lift the skin of the abdomen.
How long can the operation?
The duration of the intervention varies depending on the amount and the areas to be treated, but it generally ranges from about 1 to 2 hours.
When will the results be seen?
The final result is obtained after a few months, even in a month the change in shape begins to be very noticeable.
