Liposuction is a Surgical Procedure that removes unwanted fat from the body to simply change its shape. However, there are several misconceptions about this technique. Moreover, there are various kinds of methods used in the process. In the initial stages, liposuction was an invasive process requiring general anesthesia. Today with the progress in the field, fat deposits are removed from the skin where they persist. The fat is removed through vacuuming a hollow tube of stainless steel. Liposuction may be performed using local or general anesthesia or using intravenous sedation for cosmetic reasons.
Method of Liposuction
Traditional liposuction or lipoplasty is carried out with the insertion of a cannula into the body of the patient for extracting the fat with the help of suction. The cosmetic surgeon outlines the area of the patient body requiring treatment, taking pictures for comparisons before and after the process. The patient is made to lie down so that an IV line can be attached. Vital monitors may also be used. The patient is unconscious during the procedure. The surgeon makes a tiny incision or several of them for being suctioned. The incisions generally measure half inches and are made so as not to be visible. The cosmetic surgeon inserts a cannula within the incision or incisions. It is then directed manually within the body for fat extraction. The extra fat is suctioned out with the help of these tubes and accumulated into the waste receptacles. The process is repeated for each incision. After the process is successfully completed, the cosmetic surgeon sews the sutures. Patients may go home on the very same day or stay on, depending on the suggestions of their surgeon. In that case, the doctors will monitor their progress and administer blood transfusions, if required.
