Liposuction surgery in Bangalore, should not be considered as a magic tool for instant weight loss, you can contour and chisel the body  in areas which matter the most like tummy, flanks, thighs, arms, and underchin.

Understanding stubborn fat

The food ( calories) that we consume are used as energy  to fuel body functions( basal metabolism) and for all physical activities. If the consumption of calories is more than the expenditure by body, it gets stored as fat in different parts of body. In your abdomen fat can be of 2 types- Visceral fat around the internal organs and subcutaneous fat below the skin( pinchable fat ). Visceral fat can be reduced only with lifestyle changes unlike subcutaneous fat which can be targeted with liposuction and other methods.  
The stubborn fat which accumulates around your midsection, lovehandles, hips, back, chest sides, arms, thigh and underchin are difficult to reduce. It is because the they have lesser amount of Beta 2 receptors which help in lipolysis ( fat burn), and  more of alpha receptors  which help in fat accumulation. 

Areas treated by Liposuction

Liposuction surgery in Hyderabad also targets the following specific areas- abdomen or tummy  ( midsection), thighs, back, chest and breas-ts, arms, face, chin, waist and calf, bra line, love handles, saddlebags.
Liposuction is also used in gynecomastia ( Man boobs ) , lipodystrophy( in outer thigh  abnormal deposition of fat), removing multiple Lipomas, and after weight loss to contour areas, and with tummy tuck and body lift procedures.

Types of liposuction

Liposuction works by a simple procedure- Breaking down fat and extracting them from the body. A skilled plastic surgeon can  target the areas of removal and reshape the body . There are different methods by which the fat cells can be broken down:

Traditional Liposuction/ Manual liposuction

In this the surgeon gently moves the cannula to and fro to break the fat cells and extract it. This is aided by a high power vacuum . The fat is collected in a canistor connected to the cannula .

Powerassisted Liposuction( PAL)

In this method vibration of the cannula assists in breaking down the stubborn fat , liquefy it and suck it out of the body.

Smart Lipo

An optical fibre with laser energy is introduced through the cannula which breaks the fat cells and liquefies it, causing no damage to the surrounding structure .  It also  additionally offers the advantage of skin tightening , eliminating the problem of loose saggy skin which can occur with traditional liposuction.

VASER Liposuction

Vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance   uses ultrasound energy to vacuolize fibrous stubborn fat . The area to be treated  is infiltrated with saline first and vaser probes are introduced to emulsify fat and gently sucked out.

Liposuction is done under local or general anesthesia depending on the areas to be done.  A small 3 mm incisions are done in concealed areas of the body to target the fat cells. A  medicated solution  called tumuscent fluid is infiltrated which helps in expanding the fatty tissue.  Cannula are introduced through the port holes and Infiltrated fat globules are  then broken down with PAL( Power assisted Liposuction) , Laser Liposuction or VASER liposuction based on one of the devices.  Laser energy or ultrasound energy ( VASER) helps in breaking down tough fat cells and causes some skin tightening too.
Liposculpturing or a  high-definition liposuction body scale is required to transform your body into a muscular and sleek appearance. This enhances the muscular shape of your body and tones your appearance for an attractive look. If you have decided to go ahead with a liposuction, it is also an ideal time to make your lips fuller, fill your under eye tear trough and
folds on either side of your nose. Fat liposuctioned from abdomen and thighs can be injected in any of these areas. Large volumes can also be used to enhance breas-ts in the most natural way. Fat grafting offers natural feel and movement and is fast replacing hyaluronic acid fillers as a more permanent solution to fill the folds in your face.

Recovery and After- care

You may be admitted for a day ( for larger liposuction) or can go home the same day after liposuction. The port sites may be closed with dissolvable sutures are can be left open for fluid to drain out postoperatively for the next 4-5 days.

A custom made compression garment is worn for 6 weeks to reduce the bruising and swelling that is seen in the first two weeks. Usually, 2 weeks after liposuction, the patient can see and feel the changes in their contour even though some swelling is still apparent. The pressure garments help to even out this swelling in the next 4 weeks to contour your body. Mild bruises, seroma, swelling, mild skin irregularities can be the changes most commonly seen after liposuction.

When can I start to see the results of liposuction ?

Your surgeon can show you the actual aspirated fat after the surgery in case you want to see it .The inch reduction after liposuction is evident immediately after surgery, however due to swelling that sets in 48 hours it might not be the actual results. There is much more inch loss  later on!   Swelling takes about 6 weeks to wean off , but might take 3-6 months to completely wear off based on the body part,, skin elasticity and your healing. Wear your compression garment for 6 weeks - 3 months for a great results.

Does the fat taken out come back soon and deposit in other areas?

The number of fat cells in the body once you are an adult remains  more or less constant. During liposuction a good fraction of these cells are taken out permanently from the body .  The remaining fat cells can shirnk or enlarge based on the calorie intake and expenditure  . Hence if you maintain a stable weight after liposuction with exercise and diet , results can be maintained a lifetime.  There are no new fat cells that multiply and come back . It is a myth that  fat can get accumulated in other non liposuctioned  areas  after the procedure.

Is liposuction a single sitting procedure ?

According to American society of Plastic surgery, 5%-8% of your body weight can be taken out safely in one sitting.  So a 80 kg individual  can get a 4-6 lts liposuction done safely. This fat taken out can be in multiple body parts  carrying stubborn fat at the same sitting .  Usually liposuction is done in areas adjacent to each other like midsection and lovehandles  ,  saddle bags and  thighs ( outer and inner ),  arms and bra rolls or upper back fat.

Is Liposuction a safe procedure ?

Liposuction can be safely done by Plastic surgeons with ample experience. A patient qualifying for liposuction is  to be within 30% of ideal weight range. The fat taken out should be 5-8% of body weight . If all preoperative checks are done, and procedure is done in a  accredited center with certified anesthetist and quality healthcare it is a safe procedure. Beware of  clinics which offer discounted prices  and follow poor safety protocol. Check for the credentials of a Plastic surgeon. Find them listed in  .
