We all dream of a tight, harmonious body, free from fat and grease, but getting it may require more effort than we can afford! For this reason, many women are turning to plastic surgery, which solves the problem in a short time without any effort.
But the question remains: Does liposuction have any health consequences or is it 100 percent safe? Follow us to get the answer.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical method for cosmetic purposes. It involves the removal of fat deposits located in some parts of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and others. The amount of fat removed during liposuction is expressed in volume and not in mass. The surgeon seeks to correct the shape of the body and not to lose weight. In most cases, 2 liters of fat is sucked, but it may increase up to 5 liters. If the volume of fat is too high, the surgeon may have to perform two spasms.
Before taking the decision, it is necessary to conduct 20 to 30 minutes of consultations with the plastic surgeon and anaesthesiologist. The doctor will prescribe some treatments required to take before the operation to equip the body. You will also be asked to buy compressive underwear, which will help to prevent swelling and reduce the risk of venous infection.
For smokers, smoking is not a problem with liposuction. However, to improve wound healing, it is best to quit the habit at least a month before undergoing surgery. You will also be asked to stay away from aspirin-containing drugs within the 10 days before the procedure.
Depending on the type of anesthesia you will undergo, you may be asked not to eat or drink 6 hours before undergoing surgery.
People who should not undergo liposuction:
It is recommended to avoid this type of surgery for adolescents, obese people, serious smokers, and women taking oral contraceptives because there is a high risk of venous or pulmonary embolism.
During the liposuction process, the surgeon opens small incisions on the skin (2 to 5 mm) through which the excess fat is sucked. Some needles are inserted through the cracks, and the fats are absorbed. The procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia depending on the number of areas to be treated. Liposuction takes about one hour for the buttocks, two hours for the abdomen and buttocks, and thirty minutes for the knees.
At the end of the operation, the doctor covers the areas treated by the compressor to avoid drowsiness and swelling after liposuction.
Risks of liposuction:
Like any surgery, liposuction involves certain risks and complications such as venous inflammation, complications related to anesthesia, allergies, trauma, and some convulsions. It is important to choose an experienced surgeon to perform this operation.
Tips after liposuction:
After 15 days of exercise, get a massage! Choose a portion of natural massage and lymphatic drainage at a physiotherapist. Get back smoothly and slowly for one of your athletic activities, such as stretching, but avoid extreme sports in the first period, such as tennis or other games that need effort. Avoid sun exposure or sunburn for a month, at least until the wounds heal.
Results of liposuction:
The result of liposuction is fantastic after a month of operation, but it is amazing after a year. Liposuction performed correctly is final and radical. Fat goes away and does not come back. To avoid her return – which is rare – it is better to follow a healthy and balanced diet.
How much does liposuction cost?
