Liposuction (شفط الدهون) also known as Lipoplasty is a surgical treatment that removes unwanted fat from different areas of the body that need contouring. In this way, it can be referred to as a body contouring procedure in which fat is removed through suction. One thing should be kept in mind that liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment at all. It only contours the body areas that have stubborn fat.
Why is Liposuction needed?
There are some stubborn fats in your body that do not respond to activities like exercise and dieting. So, to remove such fats, liposuction is used. The areas that can be treated through liposuction include;
Calves and ankles
Chest and back
Neck and chin
Liposuction is performed by undergoing the following steps;
Firstly, general anesthesia is administered into the targeted area.
Then a small incision is made in the skin of the treatment area.
A narrow tube called a cannula is inserted through the incision and is moved back and forth to shave off the fat.
The broken fat is then evacuated through the tubes that are attached to the suction machine, leaving small empty pockets.
These pockets are then collapsed through a compression dressing which allows better healing.
Your surgeon might strap the targeted area with elastic tape to minimize bruising or swelling.
Liposuction Before & After
Liposuction Cost in Dubai
The average cost of Liposuction in Dubai is approximately AED 8000- AED 12000. It varies from person to person because it depends on the size and number of areas being treated. It is recommended to consult with a surgeon to know the exact cost.
Possible Complications of Liposuction
Like any other procedure, this fat loss method also comes with some amount of risks.
Risks associated with anesthesia
Suggestion – You should consult with your surgeon to clear your queries regarding risks and other important aspects. Also, in case of experiencing any issue, don’t hesitate to contact your doctor.
Laser liposuction, GPS laser liposuction, Vaser liposuction and Body Jet Liposuction are the advanced techniques of liposuction which are less invasive than traditional liposuction and require easy recovery process.
Laser liposuction is less invasive technique of fat removal that involves a cannula having laser fiber to melt the fat that gets discharged through the lymphatic system.
GPS laser liposuction is an advanced technique that melts and removes fat with laser by using GPS mapping that reduces the chance of burns or trauma.
VASER liposuction is the one of the latest techniques of liposuction that uses ultrasound waves to dislodge and break down the fat which is then removed through a cannula.
Body Jet liposuction is the most recent technique of liposuction that involves injecting a fluid with a saline solution to break the fatty tissues in the targeted areas which gets removed with the injected solution.
Time off from work can vary from a couple of days to a week or 10 days, depending upon the number of areas being treated and the amount of fat removed. If tummy tuck is performed at the same time recovery can take ten days, or longer.
In general, the safe extraction limit is about 5 liters of volume (or 11 pounds) in one session. Sometimes, we can stretch up to 6-7 liters if there is minimal bleeding, patient is young and healthy and one night stay in the hospital is planned.
If a person maintains his/her eating and exercise habits at the same level as before liposuction, the fat does not come back. Usually, it happens due to an increase in food intake.
The results from liposuction (Fat Grafting Procedure) are lasting but only if you maintain a stable weight by following proper exercise and diet regimen. The final results will become apparent after swelling and fluid retention subsides completely. It might take several months. Click here to check out before-after results.
