Liposuction or clinically called Suction-assisted lipectomy is a procedure that removes excess fatty tissues in the body. The procedure involves inserting a steel tube called cannula, it is connected to a powerful vacuum to suck all the fats through the cannula that is inserted in small incisions in the skin of the area that needs to be treated.
What a liposuction can do?
- A more shapely and younger looking body contour
- Improves the appearance of cellulites
- Smoothen the skin of the treatment area (thighs, buttocks, abdomen and chin)
What Liposuction cannot do?
- Totally remove cellulite
- It is not a weight reduction treatment
- It will not improve the elasticity of your skin. Other surgical procedures may be utilized in conjunction with the loose skin Liposuction should leave such as: thigh lift, buttock lift and facelift.
- Liposuction is not a quick way to being physically fit. Healthy diet and exercise is still recommended to maintain a curvy shapely body.
Who can have a Liposuction?
The best candidates are:
- People with good skin elasticity.
- People with excessive amounts of depository fats in the thighs, abdomen, chin, upper arms, lower arms, neck, breast area, calves and ankles but not necessarily obese.
- People who despite diet and exercise has failed to reduce or rid of these depository fats or a.k.a. “diet resistant fats”.
- People who have no medical or health conditions and can easily heal after any surgery.
