Dr. Iraniha What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical technique designed to remove excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body, helping to reshape and contour your figure. It’s ideal for individuals who are at a stable weight but struggle with localized fat that just won’t budge through diet and exercise alone.
So, where liposuction can be performed? Common treatment areas include the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, and even the chin.
During the liposuction surgery in Orange County, a skilled surgeon will typically perform the surgery under local or general anesthesia. The targeted area is injected with a solution called tumescent solution which is a combination of sterile saline, low dose lidocaine for pain and low dose adrenaline for vasoconstriction to decrease the bleeding during the procedure. This solution also allows the fat cells to swell which make the surgery much easier and safer. Subsequently, the Orange County surgeon expert makes small incisions near the targeted area and inserts a thin tube called a cannula. This cannula is used to disrupt and suction out the excess fat and sculpt the desired contours.
There are different types of surgery techniques available.
Traditional, the surgery involves the use of manual suction device connected to the cannulas to remove fat. However, there are also many other methods to facilitate this process including ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), which uses sound waves to break down fat cells, laser-assisted liposuction (LAL), which utilizes laser energy to achieve similar results and power assisted liposuction (PAL) which uses only mechanical vibration to disrupt the fat.
The ultrasound and laser assisted the surgery, also create heat to disrupt the fat cells but power assisted, is only uses mechanical vibration with minimal heat production. Each method has many pros and cons which is beyond the scope of this video post and can be discussed in separate videos but the method of choice of Dr. Iraniha is power assisted the surgery.
So, what are the benefits and limitations of liposuction? Well, liposuction can provide improved body contouring, helping you achieve a more proportionate figure. However, it’s important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss method or a solution for cellulite.
What is the recovery procedures?
After the procedure, you can expect a recovery period. Initially, you may experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort, but these symptoms will gradually subside over time. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions to ensure proper healing. Keep in mind that final results may take several months to become fully apparent, so patience is key.
Now, like any surgical procedure as hernias, liposuction does come with potential risks and considerations. These complications include but not limited to infection, bleeding, uneven contours, changes in sensation, skin necrosis and other complications. It’s crucial to consult with a qualified surgeon who will thoroughly explain the procedure, address your concerns, and assess your candidacy.
