Liposuction is a complete surgical operation that is used to remove excess fat tissue. It can be performed on any part of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, back, knees and shoulders. Besides, today it is possible to perform liposuction of cheeks, jaws and neck.
Where are the traps?
Nevertheless, liposuction is a surgical procedure and should be prepared well and properly. So, first of all, when planning surgery, it is important to understand that liposuction is not a means of weight loss or weight loss. There are diets and physical exercises for this purpose. Liposuction allows you to get rid of the so-called “fat traps”, which are extremely difficult to remove by other methods. Under this term, doctors understand limited subcutaneous fat deposits, which, depending on the sex of the person, his hormonal background and heredity of fat is collected. Their severity does not depend on the total weight – such traps can appear even in skinny people. In women, most often it is the hips, chin area, area VI-VII of the cervical vertebrae. Men have a front abdominal wall.
Preparing for surgery begins with a consultation with a plastic surgeon. And, despite the fact that the operation is very common and is performed in many clinics, you still need to contact an experienced specialist. And do not be guided by the type of liposuction, which may seem appropriate to you. This can only be reliably determined by a plastic surgeon after examination.
A distinctive feature of vibroliposuction is a vibrating cannula – a special tube, which is injected into the body’s tissues. It additionally destroys fat cells and simplifies the work of the surgeon. This can slightly reduce the time of surgery, but surgeons often have doubts about how useful these vibrations are for the patient and the surgeon.
In laser liposuction, there is a laser source at the end of the cannula. It is usually a neodymium or diode laser. It also affects adipocytes (fat cells) and helps to tighten the skin. However, surgeon need to work very carefully with the laser to prevent skin burns and unevenness after the procedure. Unfortunately, when performing laser liposuction, especially by a specialist who does not have the necessary experience, such problems are not uncommon.
Radiofrequency liposuction is also one of the most effective and safe techniques. Its main advantage is a fairly pronounced skin reduction. This procedure allows not only to get rid of excess fatty tissue, but also to tighten the skin in the area of intervention, to reduce its excess.
Ultrasound is very popular in cosmetology today – it is used in many areas. Including in plastic surgery. Canyon for such a liposuction has at the end of the source of ultrasound, which destroys adipocytes. The disadvantages of the method are similar to laser and radio frequency liposuction – high risk of burns and irregularities in the area of intervention.
