Be summer ready with liposuction

Summer is the best time to show off your body, but getting rid of fat can be a daunting task for many people. Stubborn pockets of fat can grow in different areas such as the abdomen, flanks, and sides, which can be a result of bad lifestyle, medications, obesity, illnesses, and other factors.

Some people try to slim down through diet and exercise, but these are not sufficient to contour the body. This is where liposuction comes in.

How is liposuction performed?

The goal of liposuction is to make the body more well contoured by eliminating fat from localized areas such as the abdomen, flanks, sides, love handles, and thighs. The procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Liposuction starts by placing an incision on the target area. The surgeon then inserts a tiny tube called a cannula between the skin layers. The cannula is connected to a suction pump or syringe. In a traditional liposuction technique, the cannula is moved back and forth to loosen the fat deposits.

Advanced tools are now available to melt the fat before removing it. An ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses ultrasonic waves to melt the fat, while power-assisted liposuction uses mechanical energy to loosen the fat cells.

The suction pump or syringe is used to remove the fat. The incision is then sutured or left open, depending on its intensity and the doctor’s preference. This procedure is repeated for every target area until the body becomes contoured.

Liposuction is strictly for body contouring

Liposuction is purely for body contouring, although many patients use it for weight loss. The goal is to sculpt the body, and the fat removed will not drastically decrease your weight. Furthermore, liposuction is not a treatment for cellulite, skin dimpling, and stretch marks.

Liposuction permanently eliminates stubborn fat cells from the body, but drastic weight gain after the procedure can lead to an expansion of existing fat cells and growth of new fat cells, which will render the liposuction useless.

Since liposuction is only an aesthetic procedure, it will not have any direct improvement to your physical health. Liposuction should only be done if other methods such as exercise and diet do not work.

It is important for patients have a thorough discussion with their surgeons in advance. Proceed only if the benefits outweigh the risks. Also, results may not always be the same or as what you expect, depending on your body type and the expertise of your doctor.


In order to qualify for liposuction, you must have stubborn fat deposits in localized areas of your body. Also, your sole goal for liposuction must be body contouring, instead of weight loss. If you are suffering from serious health complications, you must bring this to the knowledge of your plastic surgeon beforehand.

People suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, respiratory problems, and blood disorders may not qualify. Good skin quality and tone is also preferred. If your skin elasticity is not good, you may not be eligible. You should also have realistic expectations to be a good candidate for liposuction.


Like any surgery, liposuction entails a number of risks. These include excessive bleeding, infections, seroma, blood clotting, hematoma, excessive scarring and bruising, change in and loss of skin sensation, and skin irregularity.

These risks and complications are higher for patients who are already suffering from health problems, and for those who are taking certain medications like aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs. It is very important for patients to consult with their surgeon in advance. You should undergo the procedure only if you think the benefits outweigh the risks.


Liposuction is an effective option to prepare your body for summer. The procedure delivers effective and impressive results, as long as it is used only for body contouring. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure.

The results achieved via liposuction are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Patients should discuss the risks and complications with their surgeon beforehand.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
