Body rejuvenation with the help of liposuction
The body naturally ages over time, and while there’s not much you can do to stop the aging process, there are some things that you can do to have a fit and youthful looking body a bit longer. A healthy lifestyle that involves regular exercise and a balanced diet can help people achieve a rejuvenated body, but it is not enough to remove all the stubborn fats in the body. There are some patients whose bodies do not look proportionate even with substantial weight loss. This is because there are areas of the body with stubborn fats that no amount of dieting or exercise can easily remove. Surgical procedures can help people to achieve a more contoured body.
Liposuction is one of the most popular and highly effective surgical procedures that can help in body rejuvenation. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is done on both men and women. It is able to target different areas of the body where fat is stored. Such areas include the arms, chin, thighs, abdomen, and back, among others.
The liposuction procedure is an elective surgical procedure and the ideal candidate is one who is generally healthy, psychologically stable and with realistic expectations about the procedure. Initial consultation with the surgeon is done in order to properly assess if a patient can benefit well from a liposuction procedure.
In a liposuction procedure, the excess fats are sucked out of the body. A thin, hollow tube called a cannula that is connected to a suction machine is inserted through small incisions. By using the cannula, it is possible for liposuction to be done on a larger area even if the incisions made are very tiny. To ensure comfort throughout the procedure, patients are sedated or given anesthesia. There are some liposuction techniques that make use of local anesthesia and there are also some that make use of general anesthesia.
To prevent excessive bleeding and control pain, surgeons now use the tumescent technique for liposuction. With this technique, large fluid volumes are injected into the area where the liposuction would be performed. The fluid is made of saline plus local anesthesia and most of it would be sucked out of the body along with the fats.
