Things to know about forms and dangers of liposuction

by GuestPoster on February 8, 2011

Different forms of liposuction like ultrasound liposuction, tumescent liposuction, traditional liposuction and super wet liposuction are made by the help of the cannula. The cosmetic liposuction surgeon will use the cannula for the suction of the fat.

The cosmetic liposuction surgeon will use saline water to be injected in between the muscles and fat in order to split them up. If the amount of fat removed is bigger than the quantity of water, than this is know as traditional liposuction.

In other forms of liposuction the amount of water is different. For example in tumescent liposuction technique the liposuction surgeon will use 3 or 4 times more water than the amount of fat to be removed. This enables the liposuction surgeon easily move the cannula back and forth breaking up the cells. One of the most preferred liposuction techniques is the extremely wet liposuction where the amount of water used is equivalent with the amount of fat to be removed. In the ultrasound technique the surgeon will not use saline water, because fat will be melted with the help of ultra sound and then removed. However these techniques may sometimes cause necrosis (death of skin) and seromas (collection of yellow liquid in pockets).

Anyone who is considering undergoing a liposuction surgery has to be at least 18 years old and have healthy body and elastic skin. Those whose skin elasticity is not enough will have to undergo through abdominoplasty and tummy tuck in order to remove the surplus of skin from the abdomen. This procedure will leave scar marks after the surgery. If the idea of scars scares you, there are other alternatives to liposuction you may consider.

Basically the incisions in the liposuction surgery are not as much as an inch. You may check liposuction before and after photos to see how the incisions look after the surgery.  The water that remains in the body after the surgery will drain in days to weeks. The doctor will prescribe necessary pain killers and antibiotics.

Different patients will have different recuperation time periods, but generally it will last from a few days to months. It is necessary to mention that there are risks involved with liposuction surgery such as internal organs scraped, seromas, necrosis, excessive bleeding.

It is important to be aware that liposuction is not a weight loss technique and the patients should have realistic expectations regarding they final physical appearance.

Thank you for another great article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
