Liposuction is a beauty surgery performed on the body to remove fats from different parts. It is also referred to as lipoplasty which means modeling of fat or just lipo.
Normally, the parts of the body that accumulate fats are always known. These parts are usually around the neck, hands, thighs, hips, butts, and around the belly. In some cases, fats may accumulate at the back too.
The fats that are removed by liposuction are normally dead and when they are removed, the shape of your body always improves a great deal.
In most cases it is a good choice for people suffering obesity (excess body weight resulting from accumulation of dead fats ) and still it can be an option for those who want to improve the shape of their body like the models, this always help the to fit into particular clothing of fashion.
People who want to undergo liposuction should not be afraid of pain as there is always a painkiller that will be administered to them by the doctors depending on the amount of fats to be extracted or the kind of liposuction.
Before the start of liposuction, the patient is always given these painkillers, or they may be put to sleep if they are too fearful.
After the anesthesia has started working on the body i.e. when the patient is asleep and will feel no pain, the doctor or rather the surgeon starts making tiny cuts on the parts that liposuction is to be performed.
These tiny cuts are where the devices for suction effect , like the tubes, are put in. The suction device is connected to big syringes or pumps which then suck the fats out. The process might take longer or shorter time depending on the amount of fat to be extracted.
However there are always factors to be considered depending on the amount of fat that a patient wants to be extracted from his or her body. These factors which limit the quantity of fat that can be successfully extracted in one operation are always discussed by the doctor and the patient.
This is due to the fact that there are some negative effects that might occur on the suctioned parts should too much fats be removed. Such negative effects which are mainly based on appearance are like formation of unusual dents. Hence, one should note that too much extraction of fats exposes one to great risks.
Short history of liposuction
Liposuction started like five decades ago when surgeons were trying to implement it while at work.
These surgeons were trying to employ unusual methods of removal of fats that were overlooked at in that time. This method (liposuction) gave them unstable results.
Years later, some two gynecologists improved it through the invention of blunt tunneling under the skin while yet another gynecologist came up with incision method.
Both these methods were followed by compression. These methods improve day by day and are now used to extract fat after turning it into liquid form using some heat energy.
Its gradual improvement today has made it possible for more fat to be removed with minimal loss of blood or pain.
