We all have a little extra fat that we’d love to get rid of. While you can exercise hours and hours a day and stick to the most rigorous diets out there, sometimes those just aren’t enough. Luckily, liposuction can help you lose that extra fat and get the contoured body you’ve always dreamed of. The best part about liposuction is that it really is the most versatile cosmetic surgery procedure ever. Below, you’ll find out just how transformative liposuction surgery can be.
What Is Liposuction, and How Is It Performed?
Liposuction is the surgical removal of subcutaneous fat. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation and use of Pronox (laughing gas), so you are awake during the procedure, but you won’t feel any significant pain or discomfort. After the anesthesia is administered, small incisions will be made in the target area. An ultrasound probe is inserted through the incisions to loosen stubborn fat. This fat is then vacuumed out of the body through a cannula.
One of the best parts about liposuction is that once the fat is removed, it is gone for good. While liposuction can be performed as a standalone procedure, it is often combined with other surgical procedures. Most commonly, Renuvion® (skin tightening) is used in conjuction with VASER® liposuction; ReNUplasty® is our trademark liposuction procedure at Hotchandani Laser, Vein & Cosmetic Surgery
Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is one of the most transformative procedures available. While a tummy tuck may involve tightening the abdominal muscles, VASER® liposuction is almost always used as well at Hotchandani Laser, Vein & Cosmetic Surgery. The VASER® liposuction removes fat from the abdomen to give you that toned and defined aesthetic. Similar to liposuction surgery, a tummy tuck can be performed as a standalone procedure or it can be combined with others as a Mommy Makeover.
Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is a procedure in which fat is extracted from one area of your body (usually from the abdomen, thighs, or flanks) using VASER® liposuction. This fat is then processed and purified before it is injected into a different area of the body. Some of the most common places for fat transfer are the breasts or the butt at Hotchandani Laser, Vein & Cosmetic Surgery. Fat transfer is a great alternative to breast implants. Another positive about fat transfer is that there is no risk of the body rejecting the fat since it is your own fat.
Many women struggle with overly large breasts. The extra weight of the breasts can cause many issues, including back and neck pain and skin irritation. Additionally, large breasts can cause women to miss out on some of their favorite activities, such as sports. However, breast reduction surgery using liposuction to remove the excess fat in the breasts, is an option. Once the fat is removed from the breasts, you can enjoy a more active and pain-free life.
Also known as brachioplasty, arm lift surgery helps you get rid of extra fat in the under side of the upper arms. This fat can cause sagging skin, which is commonly referred to as bat wings. After arm lift surgery, you will feel confident with your new, trim arm contour.
Ultimately whether you choose to have liposuction surgery by itself or as part of another procedure, you will be able to feel comfortable with your slimmer appearance.
