LIPOSUCTION

LIPOSUCTION

Sometimes, even with a healthy diet and regular exercise, your body can still retain fat. Fat deposits can cause localized bulges in the neck, upper arms, upper and lower abdomen, flank areas (love handles), inner thighs, outer thighs, buttocks, and knee areas.

Liposuction removes excess fat deposits that cause localized bulges in various areas of the body. It is one of the more popular body contouring procedures. If you need we also perform abdominoplasty for women and men with loose skin, loose muscle, and excess fat tissue in their abdominal area.

This procedure is performed by making tiny incisions in concealed areas and inserting a small tube (cannula) to break up and suction away the fat deposits. The cannula is passed back and forth until an appropriate amount of fat has been removed. The entire area is treated in this fashion, carefully removing small amounts at a time, while constantly checking fat thickness and contour as suctioning proceeds. Finally, the incisions are carefully closed and an elastic garment or dressing is placed on the skin to give gentle pressure and prevent fluid accumulation in the suctioned area. After the surgery you have to wear this dressing for three weeks. Bruising and swelling typically lessens in 4 to 5 weeks. Patients often return to work and social activity in 1 to 2 weeks, but need about 4 weeks to resume aerobic or strenuous exercise.
