What is Liposuction and How Is It Done?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction device to remove fat cells from selected areas of your body. Liposuction is “targeted” so that particular areas of fat or fat deposits can be removed and your body is contoured to retain a sleeker but natural appearance. Liposuction in Dr. Manjots clinic is performed by one of our board certified plastic surgeons.
Some women and men seek liposuction because they retain fat in certain areas that are unresponsive to weight loss and/or exercise. This can be due to various causes, but is more often related to genetics and/or the aging process.
There are various types of liposuction in Punjab, at the Dr. Manjots clinic, available, but they all work on the same principle of fat removal by suction. First, a solution of “tumescent” (a combination of normal saline, epinephrine to minimize blood loss, and lidocaine to numb the area) is pumped into the area. The fat is then removed by high-powered suction.
After the removal of the fat cells, you will wear compression garments to maximize the retraction of the skin around the newly contoured area.Liposuction Procedures
At our clinic we offer Vaser Liposuction the most advanced Fat removal technique –
VASERlipo (also called Vaser Liposuction) is a liposuction device that uses ultrasound waves to shake loose fat cells, which are then removed using a suction cannula.
- Some doctors attest that this technique can be more efficient at fat removal than conventional liposuction and more selective (i.e., it disrupts fat cells but not blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue), and as a result, recovery is faster.
- The manufacturer claims that ultrasonic liposuction is more effective in the treatment of densely fibrous areas like the back, the post-tummy tuck abdomen, the breasts (male and female), and previously suctioned areas.
- Fat cells removed with VASERlipo can often be harvested for use in fat transfer to other parts of the body.
- VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance.
Liposuction procedures can be done either under general anesthesia (completely asleep) or under local anesthesia with an oral sedative. This decision is based on the number of areas being worked on, the volume of fat that will be removed, and the patient’s desired comfort level during the procedure.
If you request multiple areas of liposuction and/or the surgeon anticipates that large volumes of fat will be removed, typically the procedure is performed under light sedation intravenous (or I.V.) anesthesia where you are asleep and do not remember anything—very similar to when you might get a colonoscopy or wisdom tooth extraction.
