Many people are unhappy with their body shape because of the extra fat accumulated in many areas, which cannot be eliminated by a special diet or physical exercise.
Nowadays, this problem is no longer impossible to be resolved. The body Liposuction procedure can improve body shape and make it more attractive.
Liposuction, also known as body contouring or Lipoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure performed to remove the excess fat from specific body areas, such as chin and neckline, abdomen, hips, thighs, calves and ankles, upper arms, breast, and buttocks.
Furthermore, Lipoplasty can sometimes be an alternative to breast reduction surgery.
This procedure is not a tool for losing overweight. It is suitable for people who have a stable weight and fail all their attempts to get rid of excess fat cells.

This procedure varies from person to another based on the used technique. Your surgeon will choose the convenient process for you according to the treated area and the desired results.
Tumescent is the most widespread technique.
Your surgeon will inject a sterile solution into the treated areas, which uses to remove the fat in addition to painkiller (lidocaine) and a drug to minimize bleeding (epinephrine).
Then he/she will make small incisions into your skin and insert a thin tube called a Cannula. This tube connects to a vacuum that will suction fluids and fat from your body.
2.Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)
During the UAL technique, the surgeon will insert a metal bar that will send ultrasonic energy under your skin to rupture the fat-cell walls and break down the fat.
3.Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAL)
During the LAL technique, the surgeon will use high-intensity laser light to break down fat, then he/she will make a small cut into your skin and insert a thin tube (Cannula), which uses to remove the fat.
4.Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
During the PAL technique, the surgeon will make small incisions into your skin and insert a cannula, which will move in quick back-and-forth movements.
This motion will allow the surgeon to pull out hard fat easier and more accurate.
This procedure is right for you if you have significant fat volumes, or you have had this process before.
After finishing the process, the surgeon will ask you to wear a compression outfit which is prepared especially for you before the surgery.
A body contouring procedure takes between one to three hours. It can be performed under local anesthesia if the treated area is small, while the surgeon will prefer general anesthesia if the process is more complicated.
Recovery after the surgery
After the operation, you will remain in the recovery room for a couple of hours to check some points like blood pressure and oxygen level.
You can go home back on the same day if you undergo this procedure under local anesthesia, and you do not experience any unfamiliar complications.
While if the used anesthesia was general, the surgeon will ask you to stay for one night at the hospital.
In case you need to stay at the hospital, it would be best if you had someone to accompany you or HayatMed will offer someone to stay with you. Click here to get more information.
The first day after the surgery, it is normal to notice fluids discharge from the incisions in addition to bruising.
You will feel pain during the following 24 hours. No worries; the surgeon will prescribe a painkiller and antibiotics.
You will continue wearing the compression outfit 24 hours per day for a week. However, the surgeon will ask you to move it every two hours to prevent blood clots. Then you will wear these clothes for 12 hours per day for two weeks.
You can back to work after two weeks, while you can resume doing exercises after six weeks.
Keep in mind that the swelling will last for one month or more.
It is important to follow aftercare instructions for a quick healing period.
After a Lipoplasty procedure, you need up to one month for the swelling and the other complications to fade. However, the final result may take a few months to settle.
The result of Liposuction is usually permanent unless you gain weight after the procedure.
It is impossible to estimate the cost of Lipoplasty before the individual consultation to determine the treated areas and the used technique.
Furthermore, many factors cause a difference in the procedure price, like the geographic hospital location and the surgeon’s experience.
