All about liposuction !

If you are considering liposuction, it is important to know the steps involved.

Do you have stubborn fat that you can’t get rid of? Do you find that exercising and eating a healthy diet are no longer enough? Then liposuction is for you!

Liposuction is the most common cosmetic and plastic surgery procedure. It is the simplest and most effective treatment for permanently removing excess fat and improving the contours of your figure.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is the removal of unwanted fat from under your skin by breathing it in.

It can be performed on any area of the body that has excess fat, the most common being the stomach, thighs, buttocks and hips. These areas, especially in women, tend to store cellulite and fat, despite a good diet and regular exercise.

Over the years, new innovations in fat removal have emerged, making the procedure less invasive and sometimes even non-surgical. We detail them below

The different types of liposuction

LIPOSUCTION ASSISTED BY SUCTION, LIPOSUCTION OR SAL

This is the best-known liposuction procedure, which reshapes the figure by suctioning fatty deposits from certain parts of the body. Very fine cannulas are used to suck out the excess fat through very discreet incisions.

LASER LIPOSUCTION

The use of lasers has been a trend in the world of beauty and plastic surgery recently. This technique essentially uses the heat and energy of a laser to melt fat. In practice, if the fat is melted before it is removed, it is then removed in a gentler, less invasive way.

The laser option avoids the need for hospitalization and only requires local anesthesia.

VASER LIPOSCULPTURE OR ULTRASOUND ASSISTED LIPOSUCTION

Vaser liposculpture uses ultrasound energy to break down the fat, using a fairly large incision, and the ultrasound technology penetrates the body to make direct contact with the fat.

Surgeons say that this technique involves less swelling, bruising and blood loss, and is a gentler, less complex surgery. With this method, it is now possible to remove fat in areas that are known to be more difficult, such as the back and love handles.

However, the incision will need to be larger than a traditional liposuction incision to accommodate the ultrasound device, resulting in a larger scar.

POWER ASSISTED LIPOSUCTION

This technique uses a faster and more efficient machine to remove excess fat. It is the ideal choice if you have a large amount of fat to remove.

It works in the same way as traditional liposuction, except that the cannula is vibrating, which allows it to break down the fat more quickly.

HIGH DEFINITION LIPOSUCTION OR HDL

This is a much more extensive procedure that requires two steps. The goal of this surgery is to define and target the muscles in your body, primarily your torso and abdominal muscles, that are hidden beneath your fat.

This means that the fat must first be removed in the traditional way. The cannula is placed in very specific areas, where a significant loss of fat will promote the appearance of muscles.

Because it is a more stratified procedure, the operation and its recovery time is more important.

 

And after the procedure?

The treated area will be well wrapped with bandages to reduce swelling and minimize your pain. Results will not be visible immediately

It is important to buy your post-op lingerie beforehand, as it will help the healing process, limit swelling and effusions and promote fluid circulation: choosing quality lingerie is essential!

 

The swelling may last for several days or even weeks. It will be important to visit your surgeon after the operation to check that the post-operative process is going well.

Recovery after liposuction

Post-operative recovery from liposuction takes a few weeks. Your surgeon will have done everything possible to ensure that the incision is minimal and that swelling is kept under control.

Once the post-operative period is over, you will no longer need to wear the compression garment. We advise you to apply vitamin E oil or other scar-minimising serums.
