What is liposuction?
Liposuction is certainly not a general weight loss method. It is not a cure for obesity.
People who undergo liposuction usually have a fixed body weight, but are those who want to remove unwanted body fat deposits in certain parts of the body.
Liposuction is not a general weight loss method.
The procedure does not remove traces of cellulite, dimples or cracks. The goal is aesthetics. Suitable for those who want to change and improve the contour of their body.
Liposuction permanently removes fat cells by changing the shape of the body. However, if the patient does not maintain a healthy lifestyle after surgery, the remaining fat cells have a greater risk of growth.
The amount of oil that can be safely removed is limited.
There are some risks such as infection, drowsiness and scarring. If too much oil is taken, your skin may be light or bruised. Surgical risks appear to be related to the amount of fat removed.
Liposuction is cosmetic rather than health-oriented.
The following body areas are commonly targeted for liposuction treatment:
- inner knees
- Flanges (love handles)
- both the “saddle bag” and the outer thigh as well as the inner thigh
- top arms
Liposuction works best for people with good skin tone and elasticity, where the skin transforms itself into new lines.
Before surgery, patients will need to undergo some health tests to ensure they are suitable for surgery.
The following suggestions can be made.
- People who regularly use aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs should stop taking them at least 2 weeks before surgery.
- Women may be asked to stop taking the contraceptive pill.
- Patients with anemia may be asked to take iron supplements.
The individual must sign a consent form. This confirms that they are fully aware of the risks, benefits and possible alternatives of the procedure.
