Liposuction, also known as Lipoplasty, Lipo and suction assisted lipectomy, is the most popular body contouring surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. It removes fat deposits that one is not able to remove after performing vigorous exercise or dieting. It is commonly done and safe in experienced hands. This body contouring procedure permanently removes fatty tissues and the results are everlasting, if the patient maintains his/her weight.
HOWEVER, IT IS NOT A WEIGHT REDUCTION SURGERY FOR OBESITY AND ONLY A BODY CONTOURING PROCEDURE.
It does not help to remove stretch marks and cellulite. One must also remember that if someone puts on weight after the procedure, then the results are not long-lasting. Adults who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone are the ideal candidates for liposuction. A patient with sagging skin, stretch marks and poor underlying muscle tone usually benefit with surgical excision along with liposuction. Liposuction does not treat excess skin. Only surgery, to remove excess skin such as tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, etc., can do that. People with thin, sun-damaged skin or stretch marks may feel like their skin looks deflated after liposuction, as it is unlikely to tighten up completely once the fat is removed. Unlike excisional procedures which can give rise to long scars, liposuction can be done through tiny incisions. They are placed in hidden areas and these marks generally fade away with time.
Vaser Liposuction is a specialised liposuction procedure which uses specialised ultrasound technology to break down fat cells by sending out ultrasonic frequency waves. Vaser stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. The main difference between the two procedures is that Vaser liposuction uses very focused thermal energy to destroy the fat cells in the body. This allows Vaser to liquefy the fat cells more efficiently, allowing the surgeon to take out more fat cells compared with traditional liposuction. It is also a very effective treatment for Lipomas (Fat Tumours), Gynaecomastia (Male Breasts) and High Definition Body Sculpting (4D Body Contouring /6 or 8 pack abs). Vaser liposuction is more expensive than traditional liposuction. Small volume liposuction can be done under local anaesthesia with mild sedation. Large volume liposuction requires general anaesthesia. Dr. (Col.) Vijay Langer, suggests his patients to wear a compression garment post procedure, which is customized as per the area. Patients can be discharged on the same day and can return to normal activities within a week. Light exercises are allowed after a few weeks. Postoperative swelling and bruising occurs and subsides over a week to a fortnight. The final aesthetic result will be visible within a few months.
