What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a plastic surgery that removes excess fat from the body. This method is also known as liposuction, lipoplasty or body shaping. A cosmetic surgery method that has become very popular and people turn to it to make their body shape and beauty more beautiful. Liposuction can remove excess fat from various areas, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, neck, and waist.
You should keep in mind that liposuction is not a cure for overweight and has its own complexities and may expose your physical health to very serious and important risks! Therefore, before any action, you should consult a specialist and experienced doctor to be aware of the many problems and consequences of this method.
What is the purpose of liposuction?
The most important goal of liposuction is to shape one or more areas of the body, not to lose weight. Liposuction is usually performed on areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. These areas are often outside the thighs and buttocks in women, and the waist and back in men. In liposuction, the areas that are most commonly operated on include the face, neck, back, back, buttocks, thighs, and pelvis, between the knees, above the arm, and abdominal liposuction.
As the weight, size and volume of fat cells increase, liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in a particular area. The amount of fat removed depends on the appearance of the area and the volume of fat. Liposuction changes are generally permanent, as long as your weight stays the same.
Liposuction does not improve cellulite or other skin surface irregularities, nor does liposuction remove stretch marks.
Liposuction is sometimes associated with other cosmetic surgeries such as abdominoplasty, reduction of breast size, or facelift.
Liposuction is also used to treat certain conditions:
- Benign fat tumor (lipomas)
- Abnormal breast enlargement in men (gynecomastia or pseudogenic mastia)
- Problems with fat metabolism in the body (lipostrophy)
- Excessive underarm sweating (underarm sweating)
- Liposuction is not used to treat obesity and it does not cure cellulite or cracks on the skin.
