Liposuction is a procedure for women and men who are of relatively normalweight but have deposits of localized fat in certain areas of the body that donot respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction is the way to eliminate them.Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. Candidates of almost any age canbenefit from this procedure, providing their skin is elastic enough to retractto the normal position. Patients with loose flaccid skin might have to undergoa combined procedure, which involves skin resection. Patients who also havedepressions in their bodies can benefit from liposculpture. Fat can be injectedto improve contour.

To improve cheeks, jowls, neck, arms, breast, back, abdomen, waist, hips andbuttocks, inner and outer thighs, knees, calves and ankles. It can also be usedto treat the male breast enlargement, or gynecomastia. It can be performed onseveral areas of the body at the same time, or together with other aestheticplastic surgery.

Incisions and technique:
Fat is removed through a small hollow tube, called cannula, inserted throughone or more small incisions near the area to be suctioned. Incisions areusually 4 to 8-mm long and are often hidden in skin folds or lines. Forliposculpture the aspirator was substituted by disposable syringes connected tothe cannula to aspirate the excess fat. With syringe liposculpture and we canmeasure precisely how much fat is aspirated and there is the possibility ofre-injecting fat. Fat can be injected in the face to smooth folds and wrinklesand in the body to improve contour of areas such as buttocks, thighs, hips, legs,ankles and hands. Superficial liposculpture allows us to remove more fat andimprove body contour of patients with a more flaccid skin tone. For fibrousbody areas an external ultrasound machine may be used to "melt" thefat before aspiration.

Operating Time:

1 to 3 hours.

Local with sedation. Tumescent anesthesia made the procedure safer.

Usually outpatient. Extensive procedures may require short inpatient stay.

Walking a mile: two days. Temporary mild pain, especially in the first 48 hourscan be treated with analgesics. Swelling, soreness, numbness, bruising usuallylast a few weeks. Dressings are applied on the small incisions. There will be aleak of the anesthetic fluid through the incisions in the first 24 hours.Dressings will be changed daily. Shower is allowed after 24 hours. You may haveto wear a girdle for a few weeks. Stitches will be removed between the 5th and7th day. Back to work: 2 to 3 weeks. Exercise and sunbathing: 4 to 6 weeks ormore. Fading and flattening of the little scars: 3 months to 2 years.

Significant complications from liposuction are infrequent. Potentialcomplications are asymmetry, rippling, and pigmentation of the skin, bleeding,infection and problems with anesthesia. Temporary numbness of the skin andhematomas (blood accumulations) are possible mild complications. Irregularitiesof the skin can happen in some patients, but can be treated if necessary. Moreserious complications involve loss of fluid or blood that can provoke shock,although this is now very rare with the tumescent anesthesia. Infection is veryrare.

Liposuction improves body contour and increases self-confidence. The resultsmay take a few months to show because there is the possibility of fluidretention following surgery with prolonged swelling. Occasionally, a secondaryprocedure, or "touchup" may be indicated to improve certain areas,most times under local anesthesia. A special massage, called manual lymphaticdrainage helps with the swelling and bruising in the post-operative period,increasing comfort.

Duration of Results:
If the weight remains the same results should be permanent, especially whencombined with diet and exercise.
