lipo-armGetting rid of excessive fat can be hard to achieve. You’ll have to follow the right diet and work out regularly so that the body can gradually melt that extra fat. Nonetheless, fat can be piled up in a few zones of your body, so you’ll need an additional help in getting rid of it. A method that is proven to be helpful in achieving that is liposuction.

Liposuction, a procedure that also goes by terms liposculpture, lipoplasty, lipectomy, or essentially lipo, is a surgical procedure that is used to remove unwanted fat from the stomach areas, buttocks, thighs, neck and arms. In fact, even facial fat can be removed by using this procedure.

On the other hand, if you are considering of undergoing this procedure as a way to lose weight, you will remain disappointed. Liposuction is not an alternative to losing weight, because, in a single section, only a certain amount of fat can be removed. Removing a large amount of fat at once can be risky, which is the reason patients that still need to drop more weight are not encouraged to undergo this procedure.

Liposuction is advised to those individuals who need to remove fat tissue from certain areas in which they are not able to achieve results through appropriate diet and exercise. It is used simply as a technique to enhance the appearance of the body. Candidates for this procedure need to be healthy and more than 18 years old. Patients who suffer from different diseases or illnesses, for example, diabetes, infections, cardiac problems, or obesity, should not go through liposuction.

How Liposuction works

liposuctionSurgeons can use different methods in order to perform liposuction. In any case, the idea is to remove fat while causing minimum damage to the connecting tissues and veins and making sure that the balance of the liquid inside a patient’s body is disturbed. The patient usually experiences a level of discomfort, in days following the procedure.

The patient is usually administered anesthetics or local anesthesia. General anesthesia needs to be used in some cases. The fat that needs to be removed is first liquefied by using different techniques, for example, ultrasound, laser, or by using chemicals. After that, a surgeon creates a small incision and removes liquefied fat using a cannula that is attached to a suction pump.

Other liposuction techniques include power-assisted liposuction (PAL), water-assisted liposuction (WAL), twin-cannula liposuction (TCL), and tumescent liposuction.

Benefits of Liposuction

Removing unwanted fat from specific areas of the body, in order to shape the body, would be the biggest benefit of liposuction.

Expense of Liposuction

While costs for this sort of procedure vary based on the type of liposuction that will be performed, and the areas of the body included, we can say that the usual cost is around 5-8 thousand dollars. For example, a liposuction procedure oft the abdominal area, would cost around $5,000. One that includes the chest area, an area that is more sensitive, would cost around $8,000.

Nonetheless, there are certain facilities in the US that offer low-cost liposuction. No doubt, you’ll have to be aware of the dangers that follow this procedure, especially if it is performed by an inexperienced or unlicensed surgeon.
