Liposuction

Procedure:

Improve body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits with a tube and vacuum device. This procedure can be performed using swelling or ultra-moisture techniques. Liposuction techniques are usually performed after injecting the targeted fat cells with a saline solution containing a local anesthetic and adrenaline to reduce blood loss, allow the fat to be removed easily, as well as reduce postoperative discomfort. This also reduces postoperative bruising and swelling. The most common places for liposuction are: abdomen, back, thighs, arms, chin, male breasts, buttocks, hips, knees, legs and ankles.
There are two commonly used techniques: the “conventional technique” and the “ultrasound (UA)/vaser technique”. The traditional technique uses a hollow tube to remove the fat and ultrasound technology uses ultrasound energy to melt that fat before it is removed.
Also there is J-plasma technology, which is radio frequency waves that heat the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen formation, which leads to light to moderate skin tightening.

Length:

Traditional: 1-2 hours or more
UAL exfoliator: 20-40% longer than traditional liposuction

Anesthesia:

Local anesthesia in addition to general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia.

Possible Side Effects:

temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness or burning sensation;

Risks:

Infection, asymmetry, skin waviness, pigmentation changes (hypo/hyper), skin injury, fluid retention and/or excessive blood and fluid loss.

Recovery:

The patient usually returns to work after five to fourteen days. More vigorous activity can be resumed after two to four weeks. Full recovery from swelling and bruising may take from one to six months depending on the amount of fat removed and the areas treated.

Results:

The effect is permanent and should be increased with a reasonable diet and regular exercise.
