Liposuction is one of the most requested plastic surgeries in the world. This intervention is a simple way to improve the problem of a specific area in your body. This procedure is conducted in two phases. During the first phase, the excessive fat is removed via a cannula inserted through a very small incision. In the second phase, the body lines and skin are shrunken to receive a new improved appearance. Liposuction is a simple intervention with no associated risks. The recovery from the surgery is fast and usually people go back to work within a few days.
There exist various methods to carry out this surgery, such as inflation-assisted liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and laser-assisted liposuction. Despite the small differences between these methods, they all operate based on the same principles. During the consultation with the doctor you will receive information about each liposuction method and the doctor will help you decide on the best practice based on your needs.
People choose to undergo liposuction for a variety of reasons. In general, patients complain about one or more problematic areas in their bodies which do not respond to diet of physical exercises. Liposuction is the ideal way to improve these areas, rebuild the body and have a proportionate body shape.
