Liposuction / Liposculpture
Liposuction is the Removal of Fat From the Body
It was first used 18 years ago and the great advantage of this procedure is that it is able to decrease a figure fault by suction through a small incision. Prior to this, the only other way to remove excess fat was by cutting – which often left a long and ugly scar behind along with areas of numbness.
Change of Proportions is Long Lasting
Excess fat cells removed via liposuction are gone forever. Once extracted, the remaining fat cells do not multiply to take the place of the cells that have been removed. In this way the change in proportions is permanent.
Not a Substitute for Weight Loss
Although liposuction removes excess fat, and can reshape a body, it is not a substitute for weight loss and it is not suitable for obese patients.
Common areas that benefit from liposuction are:
- Outer Thighs
Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction
Refinements for liposuction have occurred over the years and the addition of ultrasound assistance allows the breaking up of the fibrous fat which is often found in parts of the body such as the upper abdomen and hips. Liposuction can therefore be more effective and complete with ultrasound assistance. The use of ultrasound techniques also makes it possible to treat male figure faults, which always contain fibrous fat, such as the love handles and breasts which were quite resistant to liposuction previously.
