Liposuction and Assisted Liposuction


Liposuction can be done in adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone, adults who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions, individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals and non-smokers. You will have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications of liposuction are acceptable.

Liposuction risks include:

  1. a.    Anesthesia risks

  2. b.    Bruising

  3. c.    Change in skin sensation that may persist

  4. d.    Damage to deeper structures such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles, lungs and abdominal organs

  5. e.    Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications

  6. f.    Fluid accumulation

  7. g.    Infection

  8. h.    Irregular contours or asymmetries

  9. i.    Irregular pigmentation

  10. j.    Need for revision surgery

  11. k.    Persistent swelling

  12. l.    Poor wound healing

  13. m.    Rippling or loose skin, worsening of cellulite

  14. n.    Swelling

  15. o.    Thermal burn or heat injury from ultrasound with the ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty technique

The liposuction procedure includes the following steps:

First step is anesthesia, the liposuction procedure is done usually under general anesthesia.

Second step is starting the procedure. Liposuction is performed through small incisions. Diluted local anesthesia is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma. Then a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum. 

Third step is checking the areas that the liposuction is done. 

A compression garment or elastic bandages may cover treatment areas once your procedure is completed. These help to control swelling and compress the skin to your new body contours. In addition, small temporary drains may be placed in existing incisions beneath the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid. It may take several months for the swelling to fully dissipate. After all the swellings disappear, you can see actual body contours. 

Most of the liposuction cases are permanent. 


  1. 2.    Nonsurgical Fat Reduction

Non-surgical fat reduction includes minimally invasive treatments that selectively break down fat cells in specific areas to reduce the size of subcutaneous fat deposits. 

The treatment options include:

  1. a.    Cryolipolysis

  2. b.    Laser fat reduction

  3. c.    Injectable treatments

  4. d.    Ultrasound

  5. e.    Red Light Therapy

Non-surgical fat reduction is a good option for regional fat deposits that can’t be reduced by diet and exercise. Its not a treatment for patients above %30 of body weight. 

Benefits of non-surgical fat reduction are no downtime is required, no anesthesia, incisions or scars, minimal side effects. Compared to liposuction, multiple treatments may be needed to achieve desired results, reduces fat only. 

A healthy lifestyle and weight maintenance are essential to maintain results of all the fat reduction treatments.
