Every woman knows that clothing choices become extremely difficult if you have some extra fat on your body. You cannot wear half sleeves if you arms are fat or if these fat tissues are stored in your thighs. You cannot select tightly fitted clothes and cannot take part in sports. All this stuff makes you self-conscious and you feel awkward and unfit due to your outlook.
How liposuction is performed?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that removes unwanted fat accumulations from your body. First, fat deposits are liquefied as the surgeon moves thin cannula inserted through small incisions in the body. This liquefied fat is then sucked out with the help of cannula and with this the procedure ends. Liposuction can be used to take out fat accumulations from abdomen, sides, back, hips and neck. Usually, it is performed on an outpatient basis in the private practice of a plastic surgeon or a hospital. The patient needs to stay in the hospital only if a large volume liposuction is performed.
What happens after liposuction?
Patient is able to walk around and perform most of the routine activities right after liposuction (liposuction in Dubai). The treated area of the body remains wrapped in bandages for a few days. It helps in easing the pain and swelling. The surgeon may recommend to wear some special garment to keep the treated area tight. Swelling is severe for the first week and reduces gradually. In most cases fluid drains from the incisions for a few days. Antibiotics and pain killers are prescribed to ease pain and prevent infection. The patient recovers soon if a smaller area is treated, however recovery may take longer if fat is removed from a large or sensitive area.
What is the main purpose behind liposuction?
The main purpose behind liposuction is the treatment of trouble areas that have build-ups of fat tissues. These fat accumulations are hard to get rid of as they do not liquefy with exercise and dieting. Usually, women have these fat accumulations in their thighs and hips while men have them around the waist and on back. Abdomen, arms, neck and buttocks are other areas that are most frequently treated with liposuction. While the surgery also reduces weight, this reduction is not much.
What are the potential risks of liposuction?
Liposuction in Dubai is an effective and safe procedure, however there are some potential side effects that the patients have to suffer. Swelling, bruising, pain, numbness and bleeding from the incisions are some commonly occurring side effects and disappear gradually. Although, incision scars in the treated area fade with time, they do not disappear completely. Removal of fat may also leave your skin loose and saggy. It is more common in abdominal liposuction when a large amount of fat is removed. Skin surface becomes uneven and some individuals also experience change in skin tone. The movement of cannula is a traditional procedure or heat generated during ultra-sound assisted liposuction may damage nerves, skin or any internal organ. Chances of risks increase if a large area is treated.
Having your liposuction from a board certified and experienced surgeon assures you the minimum possibility of risks and complications. Anyone considering liposuction must keep in mind that it is not a solution for general obesity or fatness. While it is a good treatment for localized fat deposits, it cannot treat people who are generally obese. They must reduce their weight with exercise and dieting and then have surgery to bring more changes in their body shape.
