Liposuction

Liposuction also called 'lipoplasty' is a cosmetic procedure involving surgery that aims to remove fat deposition from sites such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, neck, arms and elsewhere.

Liposuction can be used to contour the body into an agreeable shape and make it proportionate. The procedure is performed with the help of a liposuction machine and special instruments called cannulas. There are mainly three kinds of liposuction.

  • Fluid injection- The most common type, a large amount of medicate solution is injected into the area. This fluid contains a local anesthetic, a drug to contract blood vessels and an intravenous salt solution to help in fat removal.
  • Superwet technique- Takes less time but requires general anesthesia or sedation with an IV.
  • Ultrasound assisted liposuction- Ultrasound vibrations are used to liquify fat cells. The fat is then suctioned out. Laser assisted liposuction has also been developed and has become very popular.
