Fat Reduction/ Liposuction Surgery in Lucknow

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic technique that is used to break down and remove excess fat from the body. It assists you in getting rid of diet and exercise-resistant fat from your hips, buttocks, love handles, thighs, ankles, breasts, arms, back, neck, face, and saddlebags. Liposuction surgery is one of the most popular and risk-free cosmetic procedures for getting into shape. It is a cosmetic operation that permanently eliminates fat cells to give modest results. It improves and refines body shape. Liposuction can be done as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with breast reduction, tummy tuck, or facelift surgery.

Procedure and recovery time

Step 1 - Anesthesia

General or local anesthetics are used to ensure the patient's comfort. Your surgeon will propose the best option for you.

Step 2 - The incision

Liposuction is conducted using unobtrusive and tiny incisions. Diluted local anesthetic is administered to decrease trauma and bleeding. A tiny hollow tube (cannula) is introduced into the incision. The cannula is pushed back and forth in a controlled way to release the extra fat. The fat is suctioned out of the body using a syringe or surgical vacuum coupled to the cannula.

Step 3 - Closing the Incision

Dissolving sutures are used to seal the incisions. If non-dissolving sutures are used, they are removed during the follow-up visit.

Types of liposuction procedures

  1. Tumescent liposuction - Several liters of saline solution and local anesthesia are used to block the nerve vessels and let the fat cells swell that need to be suctioned out.
  2. Dry liposuction - There is no fluid given before the fat is removed. Because of the danger of bleeding and bruising, this procedure is rarely employed.
  3. Super wet liposuction - It is a version of the tumescent method, although it involves less fluid injection and is performed under anesthesia.
  4. Suction-assisted liposuction - It is the most common type of liposuction in which a strong vacuum is used to shatter and suck the fat.
  5. Power-assisted liposuction - The cannula in this procedure features a vibrating tip that accelerates the motion of the cannula, making fat removal straightforward, pleasant, and quick. The movement is precise, tiny, and controlled.
If you had an outpatient procedure, you should be able to return to work in a few days. You should feel like yourself again two weeks following surgery. It may take up to six weeks before you may resume your normal physical activities, such as exercising. After your liposuction operation, you will have scars. Following surgery, your physician will advise you on how to care for yourself to reduce the possibility of ugly scarring or problems as you recuperate. After surgery, most people have relatively few scars.
