Liposuction is a cosmetic process which aids in the removal of excessive body fat. These stubborn fats are hard to get rid of through the correct diet and (or) physical exercise. This treatment, which is performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon, is done on various parts of the body, especially the belly, thighs, hips, face, buttocks, and arms. Liposuction has been used to not only remove the excess fat from the body but also to help in body contouring. Many patients who seek liposuction treatment in Dubai want to improve on their shapes.
When one gains more weight, there is an increase in fat cells in size and volume. Liposuction is generally used to reduce the number of fat cells in that specific region. The number of fat cells and the appearance of the area the procedure should be performed on determines the volume of fat cells removed. This results in permanent contour changes to the body – as long as the weight remains in check.
Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Anyone can get Liposuction. But just as in the case for the majority of other medical conditions, one has to pass some criteria to be the right candidate for Liposuction. It should be noted from the start that Liposuction is not a cure for obesity. Also, it cannot also be used to remove cellulite and stretch marks.
Such a procedure is ideal for someone who is not overweight but has specific parts of their bodies which bother them. These parts can be contoured to give them a better shape.
In a nutshell, the ideal candidates for Liposuction are people who;
- Already have a stable weight and are not obese
- Wish to get more definition of certain parts of their bodies
- Have good skin elasticity
- Do not have certain diseases which affect blood flow, such as diabetes, heart disease, or a generally weak immune system
- Do not smoke
The 5 Types of Liposuction in Dubai
This is the most common type of Liposuction. The surgeon starts by injecting a sterile solution – which is a mixture of salt water, into the target area. This solution helps in the removal of fat and is usually two or three more times the amount of fat to be eliminated. An anesthetic is also administered to prevent any pain. It’s also a drug which helps to constrict the vessels is also injected into the region to be treated.
After that, the affected area will swell and stiffen before the surgeon makes a tiny incision on your skin. A small, thin tube (cannula) is inserted under your skin. The cannula is then connected to a vacuum which suctions the fat from under your skin.
The IV solution is suctioned alongside the fat as it makes it easier to come off, without the loss of any unnecessary blood and tissues.
This procedure takes a little bit longer than most other liposuction types.
This technique is more or less related to the tumescent, or otherwise known as the traditional method of Liposuction. A saline solution, which comprises adrenaline and anesthesia, is injected into the target area. A small cut is after that made, and a procedure just like as in the case of tumescent Liposuction takes place.
The only difference between the super-wet lipo and tumescent lipo is that; the amount of saline solution injected is the same as the amount of fat to be taken out. Moreover, this procedure might require sedation or general anesthesia before being performed.
Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (UAL)
The UAL procedure utilizes ultrasonic vibrations to turn the fat into liquid. These ultrasonic sound waves are used to rupture the cells of fatty cells’ walls. Fatty cells are then liquefied, making it easier to suction out. Vaser liposuction in Dubai is one of the types of UAL and is rapidly picking up popularity due to how good it is in body contouring.
Laser-assisted Liposuction (LAL)
Commonly referred to as smart lipo, this procedure makes use of heat energy from a laser to coagulate blood vessels, melt the fat, and tighten the skin. This is a less invasive procedure with a quicker recovery, safer, reduced bruising of the skin, and is proven to have enhanced skin tightening assistance.
Compared to other types of Liposuction, LAL is a susceptible procedure. Only accredited surgeons can perform it. This is because there are risks of complications if done by the wrong person resulting in burns and other thermal injuries.
If this is your preferred choice, it is paramount to conduct your research and settle for nothing less than highly-skilled surgeons. Only look for the best and highly-trained surgeons in Dubai to avoid unnecessary complications.
Power-assisted Liposuction (PAL)
With power-assisted Liposuction, a cannula with an oscillating tip is inserted inside the target region. The resultant vibrations make it easier for the surgeon to pull out more fat with more precision. This process generally has low pain, and a minimal amount of swelling is noticeable. PAL is ideal for someone who needs more amounts of fat to be removed or, for someone who previously had Liposuction on the same area.
The Recovery Phase
Liposuction is not a procedure which will make you get admitted to the hospital. It can even be done over lunch hour. After the treatment, you should expect some bruising, swelling, and in some cases soreness or pain. The pain can last for the next couple of weeks. This should not worry you much as the surgeon will prescribe drugs for the discomfort and antibiotics to prevent infections.
The incision might be left open.Temporary drains are placed to promote drainage of the extra fluid. You will be given a compression garment to be worn for the next one or two months, which will help control the swelling. Most people can be up and running after two weeks. The recovery time for patients, however, varies.
Only Trust the Best!
There are so many people, clinics, and other websites which have too much puffery on the fact that they are offering Liposuction. Do not buy the hype. Before trusting such people, ensure they are accredited and are highly-skilled. Be sure to contact some of the best surgeons for liposuction treatment in Dubai.
