LIPOSUCTION, LIPECTOMY OR LIPOSCULPTURE

Liposuction, Suction-assisted Lipectomy or Liposculpture is a modern surgical technique for removal of unwanted body fat. Unwanted fat deposits in the body look unappealing and the common areas where fat becomes accumulated are hips, tummy, neck, arms, thighs, and inner areas of ankles and knees. This technique can also be useful to treat benign fatty lumps called lipoma and excessive fat deposits under the nipple in males giving an appearance of female-like breast known as gynaecomastia.

LIPOSUCTION CONCLUSIVE REMEDY

Fat reduction is possible through exercise, balanced diets and surgery. However, one of the best and common methods to remove localised fat deposition and to get rid of the bulk is “Liposuction”. In this procedure, a small incision is made in the skin and a metal cannula attached to plastic tubing connected to a vacuum pump, is inserted. Within the area of superfluous fat deposit, the cannula is drawn back and forth. This process does not significantly affect the blood vessels and nerves thus leaving them intact largely, but removes the tunnels of fat under the skin. After the procedure, the skin retracts giving a tighter and more shaped appearance.

Liposuction procedures may vary. In the tumescent or wet technique of the liposuction commonly used by Mr Javaid, the area for fat removal is targeted using saline solution with local anaesthetic. This ensures reduced blood loss, less bruising, and much less discomfort and pain post-operatively.

WILL THE RESULT LAST?

The results are actually long lasting, as fat cells are not known to be regenerated in adults. Hence, removal of fat by liposculpture will bring a long lasting alteration in the body contour as long as body weight is maintained.

EXPECTED OUTCOME

Considerable bruising with pain can be expected from this surgery. Depending upon the area treated, discolouration of the bruise may take about two to four weeks to settle; whilst swelling especially in areas like ankles and abdomen may take longer to disappear. As such it may take about six months for complete benefit of the surgery to become apparent. Numbness of skin might exist for few weeks to months. Scars are usually very small and will persist but hardly visible once they become mature and pale with time.

DURING AND AFTER THE OPERATION

If treated for multiple areas, you might have to stay in the hospital for 24 hours, rarely even more. While treating the lower section of the body, an epidural is sometimes used as an alternative but for smaller areas local anaesthetics can alone do the job. Simple pain killers will be administered for few days. A tight pressure garment is fitted immediately after the procedure and advised to be worn for approximately four weeks to improve the comfort and reduce the swelling. The operation will require you to take a few days to a couple of weeks off work depending upon the number of areas treated. But yes! The results are worth the wait.

LIMITATIONS AND RISKS

Liposuction cannot be treated as a cure for obesity. The amount of fat that can be removed from an area safely through this process is limited. As such, considering this safety limit you may not be able to reduce fat to your expectations because it might be riskier for you to have more than 3 litres removed in one go. Skin may also appear loose and lax in some cases, thus needing a further surgery for correction of the condition. Complete removal of cellulite and correction of wrinkles and dimpling of skin is also not feasible through this procedure.

POTENTIAL RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS

Bruising, swelling, contour irregularities, skin dimpling, asymmetry, residual skin laxity, infection, temporary or permanent skin numbness, persistent dissatisfaction with the appearance.

PRECAUTIONS BEFORE SURGERY

Avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs for 2 weeks before surgery. Stop smoking 6 weeks before surgery.

SUMMARY

Operation duration: 1-2 hours. Anaesthesia: General/Local. Hospital Stay: Overnight. Time offwork: 1-2 weeks depending upon extent and number of areas treated. Overall result: Visible from 2-6 months.

Thigh Lift, Thighplasty or Thigh Reduction

View this post on Instagram

Thigh Lift in Hatfield⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Thigh lift, thighplasty or also known as thigh reduction is a modern surgical procedure for reshaping thighs by removing excess skin and fat; this gives you smoother skin and an even contour on your thighs and lower body. Ageing and weight loss can cause the thigh skin to become flabby, saggy or dimpled. In some women (and men), the problem is further intensified by fat deposits. Thigh lift surgery is performed alone, or in combination with other techniques such as liposuction or a lower body lift. This procedure can be effective in restoring a firmer and more youthful contour of the thighs.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The aim of the procedure is to reduce and tighten the flabby, loose or dimpled skin and create thighs that appear proportionate to the legs, buttocks and abs.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Enquiries in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire: Please speak to Mrs Pauline Titley (private secretary) on 077 8069 8989⠀⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ #cosmeticsurgery ⁠⠀ #bedfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #hertfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #derbyshire ⠀⁠⠀ #nottinghamshire⁠⠀ #stevenage ⁠⠀ #hitchin⁠⠀ #luton ⁠⠀ #hatfield⁠⠀
