About Liposuction & Body Sculpture
Liposuction is a method of achieving body sculpture by removing excess deposits of fat. Localized accumulations of fat, which are often inherited and frequently prove impossible to eliminate by exercise or dieting, can now be removed permanently by liposuction surgery.
The body fat of an adult tends to increase gradually over the years, After the age of 30, an individual tends to add fat according to a genetically predetermined pattern,. This fat distribution is often resistant to exercising and dieting. An example of genetically predetermined fat distribution is the fat that appears on the abdomen and hips of a woman after pregnancy.
For many people who have excessive accumulations of fat, liposuction is the only realistic means of significantly changing the body’s silhouette. In effect, liposuction is equivalent to being able to focus the effects of dieting to specific areas of the body.
What is liposuction?
The concept of liposuction is surprisingly simple. Liposuction is a surgical technique that improves the body’s contour by removing excess fat from fatty deposits located between the skin and muscle. Liposuction involves the use of a small stainless steel tube, called a cannula (from the Latin word for reed, tube, cane). The cannula is connected to a very powerful suction pump and inserted through small skin incisions. The removal of fat is accomplished as the suction cannula creates tiny tunnels through the fatty layers. After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse resulting in an improved body contour.
Areas treated by liposuction
The most frequently treated areas in women are the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, and beneath the chin. In men, who compromise about 25%-30% of our patients, the most commonly treated areas include the love handles, the abdomen, breast and the neck and chin area.
