Liposuction

Liposuction

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.
  • Non-smokers (must at least quit for a minimum of two weeks before procedure)
  • People who have positive outlook in life and expectations.
