It takes more than just an exercise or dieting to get rid of stubborn fats. Such fats need to be sucked out of the body in a controlled way through a procedure called Liposuction in Dubai. In simple words, liposuction is a process in which body fats are removed from the body through suction. It is also known as “lipoplasty” or “lipo’ and is commonly used for body contouring. Even though liposuction can be performed alone but it is often combined with procedures like a tummy tuck or breast lift.
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure and should not be considered as a weight loss, obesity control, or cellulite reduction treatment. It is only performed for aesthetic improvements in your body by eliminating fat pockets from various areas of the body. As liposuction is a surgical treatment, it becomes necessary to learn about the treatment in detail.
What is Liposuction treatment?
Liposuction Dubai is undoubtedly the quickest way to get rid of fats from specific body areas. It converts the body fat into a liquid which is discharged out of the body through small suction tubes called microcannula. As a result of this surgical procedure, the targeted areas are remodeled and you get an aesthetically improved body shape. However, the amount of fat that can be removed through liposuction is limited. Liposuction surgery is performed under the local or general anesthesia and requires 2-3 hours for completion.
Liposuction can be used on a variety of body areas for both men and women. The treatable areas include;
- Upper Arms
- Chest and back
- Neck and chin
You are a suitable candidate for liposuction if;
The weight of the person undergoing liposuction should be within 30% of the desired range. Also, it is preferable not to remove more than 7% of the body weight through liposuction. The liposuction surgeon will assess your eligibility for the procedure and will set goals for the surgery.
- You are in good health and you do not smoke.
- You should not be pregnant.
- You have good skin elasticity.
- You are not suffering from diabetes or blood circulation problems.
- You have normal body weight.
- You have a healthy lifestyle.
- You should not have a weak immune system.
The safe extraction limit for a single session of Liposuction is about 5 liters or 11 pounds. Sometimes, we can stretch up to 6-7 liters if there is minimal bleeding, the patient is young and healthy and one night stay in the hospital is planned.
The recovery period of liposuction can vary from a few days to weeks based on the size of the area treated. If an expert surgeon has performed the treatment, the recovery period will be short. You can start walking once the anesthesia wears off. Also, you can resume your daily work when the swelling starts subsiding after a few days. Surgeons might prescribe compression garments and medications for fast recovery. Take a few days off after the liposuction surgery for rest and do not resume exercise before one week at least.
You can take off for almost 10 days or more depending on the size of the area being treated and the amount of fat removed.
Yes, liposuction in Dubai is a very effective body contouring technique. It gives long-lasting results and reshapes your body by removing extra fats.
People who have stubborn body fats that don’t respond to exercise or dieting can opt for liposuction. It will not only help you in getting rid of fat pockets at various body areas but will also give you a contoured body. Apart from body contouring and aesthetic reasons, liposuction can also be opted to treat certain medical conditions like
Laser liposuction is a 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 a laser by using GPS mapping that reduces the chance of burns or trauma.
VASER liposuction is 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 fluid with a saline solution to break the fatty tissues in the targeted areas which get removed with the injected solution.
Only an expert liposuction surgeon can decide the best suitable liposuction technique for you. It is because every technique has certain candidacy criteria, pros and cons. Therefore, consult with the surgeon before undergoing liposuction. He will choose a technique depending on the size and number of body areas to be treated, the amount of fat being removed, skin elasticity and lifestyle factors.
You will feel mild pain the day after the surgery which can be controlled with the help of medicines. Your surgeon might prescribe you antibiotics as well to reduce infection. Also, you might observe some liquid dripping off from the incision area after the surgery. Don’t worry as it is normal and good for recovery. Once you have recovered fully from the treatment, you can expect to have a properly shaped body.
It takes 2-4 months to see the final results of Liposuction. However, the majority of the effects are visible within 4-8 weeks as the swelling subsides.
How is liposuction performed?
Liposuction surgery in Dubai is performed in the following steps;
Step 1: General anesthesia is administered into the targeted areas.
Step 2: A small incision is made into the skin and a cannula is inserted.
Step 3: The cannula is moved back and forth to break down the fat.
Step 4: The broken fat is then drained through the microcannula and a low power suction machine. This leaves small empty pockets which are collapsed with the help of compression dressing.
Step 5: Your surgeon might use an elastic tape to reduce bruising and swelling.
