What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure designed to reduce fat, essentially by removing it with suction action. Liposuction has been refined over the years and is now most present in a form known as tumescent liposuction, which is safe, minimally-invasive and effective. Liposuction can be used on these areas of the body:
- Male breasts (Gynecomastia)
Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is, instead, a fat reduction procedure. Liposuction is not designed to help people who are overweight or obese find a healthy weight, but it can help those dissatisfied with their figure or areas of problem fat finally have the look they crave.
How Does Liposuction Work?
In order to be an acceptable liposuction candidate, you must meet several criteria. That includes:
- Average, or slightly higher-than-average weight
- Have some degree of natural skin elasticity
- Be in good overall health
If you meet these criteria, the first step in liposuction is to schedule a consultation. At a liposuction consultation, your doctor will likely discuss how lipo can help your figure and will use a marker to illustrate the areas where fat will be removed.
During the liposuction procedure:
- A solution is injected into the target are that combines pain medication and a solution that helps break down the fat.
- A tiny incision is made to the target area.
- A small tube known as a cannula is placed through the incision.
- The cannula removes fat during the process known as liposuction.
The tumescent liposuction itself is most often performed as an outpatient procedure in a doctor's office, but when very large quantities of fat are removed, an overnight hospital stay may be required. While they are not the same, liposuction is often performed alongside skin tightening procedures.
