One of the most popular plastic surgeries in the world, but also highly misunderstood, is liposuction. Most people think that liposuction is the procedure in which we lose weight. Sure, this is a misconception that prevails.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is the process in which the body is repaired as the plastic surgeon selectively removes fat from the affected areas. In fact, liposuction is a process that removes fat and is certainly not used for weight loss. The less you abstain from your ideal pounds, the more effective the surgery will be. If you want to lose a lot of weight, you will not have the result you believe in this process. The more fat the surgeon can take to keep the procedure safe is 2.5 to 3.5 pounds. If too much fat is removed, it will be unhealthy for the body, perhaps dangerous. It can still cause more aesthetic problems, such as for example excess skin or even tearing. You should also know that liposuction is not the appropriate method for fighting cavities or cellulite.

What is its use?

Liposuction can permanently remove fat, from areas that are stored and can not leave with proper nutrition or exercise. Such areas are, for example, the lower part of the chin, upper arms, back and thighs. The loss of fat at these points will be permanent and the result will be visible.

What is the process?

Various variants of the liposuction process are available throughout the world, but the basic pattern used by plastic surgeons is common. Since we are talking about a surgical procedure, the patient is subjected to total anesthesia. Then small incisions are made in the body, at the points of interest, and with a small tube the absorption of the adipocytes takes place. To absorb fat more efficiently, it is previously dissolved by laser or some liquid injected into the body or by ultrasound.

After the surgery is complete, the doctor gives painkillers to the patient to recover and treat the pain. It may take about a month for the effects of the surgery to be visible, since the tissues will be temporarily bulky, heavy and numb. Any symptom that appears will be temporary. Once the body has recovered, you will be able to see the full effect of the procedure and the body’s reformation will now be evident.

Will the results be permanent or will the problem return again?

Most patients are concerned that in areas that have improved with liposuction, fat will reappear. Since the adipocytes in the affected area have been removed and have no ability to regenerate, you do not have to worry about the problem returning. If you follow a proper diet and put exercise in your life then you can keep your new image forever.

If after surgery you take too much weight abruptly, the fat will look for a part in your body to be stored. This means that fat will be distributed differently to your body. It will return to points that have not been liposuction, creating new troubled areas. If you take too much weight, the fat tissues in the treated areas will multiply and spread, but to a lesser extent than before surgery.
