This operation involves using medical equipment to remove excess fat from the deep layer, which can be done for breast, tummy, waist, arms, and thighs. The goal of the operation is to reduce and reshape the intended part(s). This approach is only recommended for individuals with excess fat without sagging skin. For individuals with both, it is recommended to do surgery alongside Liposuction for best results.
Nowadays, there are several options for the equipment to remove the fat, each with their own pros and cons. Regardless of the equipment choice, it is important to remove only what is necessary -- too much and there will be risks of having skin dimples and ripples.
After the operation, it will take 3-6 months for the tissue and skin to be in place with no sign of swelling. It is recommended for the patient to regularly exercise and monitor their weights closely to minimize the reaccumulation of excess fat.
Individuals with excess fat around the breast, tummy, waist, back, arms, and thighs.
After applying general anesthesia, the surgeon will apply local anaesthesia to the area requiring the operation, injecting tumescent fluid under the skin around the area to perform the liposuction, and will use the equipment to remove the excess fat. This step will take about 2-3 hours depending on the amount of fat and the location. After the operation, an elastic band will be used to minimize swelling. The surgical cut will appear as a small dot.
Clean the area daily, avoid contact with water until suture removal date.
Wear elastic waist band for 2 months after the operation.
Remove the suture on Day 7, after which the wound can be in contact with water.
The operation area will gradually take position within 3-6 months.
The scar may be visible during the first 3 months, and then will become less noticeable within 1 year.
If too much fat is removed, the skin may appear rippled and dimpled.
How long will the change last?
The change will last about 5-10 years, depending on the individuals’ lifestyles and skin types.
