Liposuction is an operation where fat deposits in certain parts of the body are absorbed by a special vacuum or with special injectors from the body. It is definitely not a weight loss surgery but a body contour correction surgery. With this operation, you can get rid of the fat deposits, which you cannot lose with diet and exercise. Liposuction can also be used by hips, butt, inner knee, cheeks, double chin, calf and wrist. The operation can be done under general anesthesia or sedation. In order to minimize the bleeding and reduce the risks, a solution called tumescent liposuction is given and excess deposits of fat is aspirated by applying the vacuum using special cannulas. Up to 10% of the body weight can be aspirated at a single time.
In certain patients, laser liposuction using laser heads is preferred for restricted areas to provide faster recovery and tightness in skin tissue.
