The first thing that comes to our mind at the sight of any well shaped person is that we too want to become like them. But sometimes, no matter how hard we try, there seems to be so many factors working against our attainment of the perfect physique. Liposuction, one of the most popular type of cosmetic surgery, is an option to remove small bulges that won’t budge and to improve your body’s shape.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery operation in which fat is literally sucked from the body through a tube and disposed of. It can reshape and greatly improve the contours of the body. Areas affected can range from the abdomen, thighs and buttocks, to the neck, backs of the arms and elsewhere. The tube that is used for suctioning out the fat is called the cannula, and is attached to a suction pump. The cannula is inserted into the body and the fat is sucked out, causing the reshaping of the body.
Is it safe?
Yes, it is actually a very common procedure and is relatively safe. However if performed incorrectly or in an unsanitary environment there can be complications and risk. The risk involved are usually minor, but in very rare occasions death has occurred, around two people out of ten thousand. There are some things that one can do to lessen the chances of complications, such as:
- Choose your doctor carefully
- Check his background
- Physical examination before to make sure you are healthy enough to have the surgery
- Keep wounds clean after surgery
- Take all antibiotics prescribed.
What are the side effects?
One of the most common complication is fainting. Some people experience fainting the day after surgery most often after urinating. There are other minor complications after surgery that some people experience and some don’t. These include allergic reactions to medications, unusual skin color, scars and sometimes numbness in the area of the surgery.
Are the effects permanent?
Yes the fat cells are permanently removed from that particular area, but you can gain weight in other places if proper diet and exercise regimen is not maintained.
