How Liposuction Works

Have you ever wanted to lose remove some fat from your body?  Are you interested in a tighter body?  Then you should look into liposuction.  From celebrities to the girl next door, liposuction is proving to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries available.  Everyone wants to reach their ideal body image, so why not try liposuction.  Before you schedule your surgery, learn a little about how liposuction works and what is involved in the process.

The overall concept of liposuction is the removal of fat from a certain part of the body in an attempt to create a streamlined shape.  To achieve this goal, there are several factors to consider.  But first, you need to know the background information.  Fat is a tissue of cells that store energy, located underneath the skin.

A liposuction procedure takes place when a doctor makes a small incision and inserts a stainless-steel, hollow tub, called a cannula, into the deep fat layer.  The doctor pushes and pulls the tube through the fat layer.  As the cannula moves, the fat cells are broken apart and a cauum pump, or syringe, removes the fat with suction.

A liposuction treatment is mostly used for cosmetic purposes.  If you want a smoother shape in your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, thighs, hips, calves, arms, or back, liposuction is the proper treatment for you.  If dieting and exercising isn’t sculpting your body, allow liposuction to give you the shape you have always wanted.  But remember, it is a reshaping technique, not a weight-loss technique. The best candidates for liposuction are those who are of normal weight and in good shape.  With a healthy body and firm skin, liposuction can get rid of the trouble spots you have.

The liposuction process begins with a consultation.  Your health will be evaluated and if your skin is elastic enough you are considered a good candidate.  Once you have been approved, the day of your surgery the doctor will mark the skin indicating which area the fat will be removed from.  You receive your anesthesia, local or general anesthesia or a sedative.  The doctor will make the small incision and insert the cannula into the fat layers of the target areas.  The cannula moved back and forth, loosening fat cells that are suctioned and placed into a flask.  The cannula creates tunnels in the fat  layer that need to collapse in order to heal and create the new body shape.  After the surgery, a compression garment is worn.  There are different liposuction techniques, the tumescent technique, super-wet technique, and the ultrasound-assisted liposuction.

Regardless of which technique is used, liposuction is the perfect solution for smoothing out and reshaping your body.  After you have gone through the surgery, you will find that your body is transformed.  Enjoy your new, tighter body.  Liposuction is a great choice for those in good health that just cant seem to smooth out those areas of your body you want perfect.  Let Advanced Cosmetic Surgery help you today.
