Liposuction is a procedure (surgical) that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body. Most common areas are: abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms and neck.
Liposuction isn’t a method for weight-loss or a weight-loss alternative. If someone is overweight, then to lose more weight you might think about diet (healthy eating) and exercise or through bariatric procedures — such as gastric bypass surgery, gastric sleeve etc.
Liposuction is used to remove fat from areas of the body that have not responded to exercise and diet
Even a well-trained body of normal weight can have its problem zones.
Extra weight carried in such areas rarely responds to any diet and exercise. Hereditary factors and hormones determine how fat cells are distributed in our bodies.
In that case liposuction is here to help. Liposuction permanently removes fat cells in order to give the body a more aesthetically pleasing shape. There are few different type of liposuction methods that are being used:
– Tumescent liposuction (fluid injection) is the most common type of liposuction.
- Super-wet technique is similar to tumescent liposuction.
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) uses ultrasonic vibrations to turn fat cells into liquid.
- Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL) uses laser energy to liquefy fat cells
Most common method?
Water assisted liposuction (WAL) is widely used all over the world and is also an innovative, gentle method for the surgical reduction of persistent fat stores. In this method irrigation solution is introduced into the fatty tissue with a pulsating spray action using a special cannula.
Theis solution is then immediately suctioned off-together with the loosened fat cells. The gentle water-jet loosens the fat and makes it possible to remove fat cells permanently while sparing subcutaneous tissues.
The water jet helps minimise risks
Compared with conventional liposuction methods Water assisted lipo (WAL) removes fat with much less force and with significantly lower risk of side effectsWith other methods the irrigation solution must remain in the body for a certain period of time in order to take effect. With the WAL the waiting period is minimised and that significantly reduces overall treatment time
With the water-jet method there is no risk of thermal injury (e.g. burns) and a much lower risk of bruise formation and injury to the sensitive nerve tissues under the skin. The strands of connective tissue responsible for skin tightening remain largely intact beneath the skin. For you it means excellent chances of being practically pain-free within just a few days of the treatment.Ask a specialist before the procedure
Even a gentle surgical procedure as liposuction has associated risks. If you are interested in learning more about gentle body-contouring with the innovative water assisted liposuction procedure ask a trusted specialist about the benefits and risks of such a treatment.
