The human body is volatile. Our size keeps fluctuating with age, diet and environmental factors. However, some of us have a higher tendency to gain weight than others. Another annoying situation is when you are slim overall, but have pockets of fatty deposits in your belly, thighs or upper arm area.
Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise these fatty deposits do not go. For this reason, cosmetic surgeons have devised the amazing liposuction technique, also known as liposculpture. Liposuction was first discovered by European doctors during the 1960’s- the technique has been tried, tested and perfected over the course of 5 decades and has become popular the world over.
Liposuction in Dubai is also increasingly growing in popularity and demand. This simple process involves inserting cannulas into the treatable areas to suction out fat using a high-powered vacuum.
Whilst liposuction has been reported to remove up to 50 pounds of fat, it is important to remove small parts in one session as too much fat removal in one go can lead to lumpiness or denting in the skin.
Liposculpture can be performed under local or general anesthesia hence the anesthetics must suit the patient. Other factors to consider for candidacy and eligibility are the following:
The Patient must be in good health
- Liposuction patients must be generally fit with a healthy diet and active routine as this procedure is not a weight loss method rather a way to remove fatty deposits.
- The patient must be 18 years of age and above, must not have diabetes, heart disease, any infection or blood pressure.
- The patient should not have smoked at least 8-9 months prior to the surgery.
Areas where liposuction is performed
Liposuction in Dubai is most commonly performed in the following areas:
- Abdomen (belly)
- Love handles
- Outer thighs
- Inner thighs
- Upper arms
- Double chin
- Male breasts
It is important to approach a certified, qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon for the liposuction procedure. A good cosmetic surgeon would assure to abstract the right amount of fat, to cause least disturbance to surrounding tissue such as blood vessels, to not disturb the person’s fluid balance and cause the least amount of pain or discomfort to the patient.
Latest techniques of liposuction have made the process easier with a minimal chance of risk. Patients have seen their body gain a balanced, harmonious and contoured shape after surgery.
