Many men and women seek out cosmetic surgery options in order to spark weight loss and combat obesity. While cosmetic surgery does come with risks, it’s now safer than ever before and popular cosmetic weight loss options include liposuction and tummy tucks.
The gastric bypass operation, which makes the stomach smaller in order to facilitate feelings of fullness based on ingestion of far less food than is typical, is not classified as a cosmetic surgery procedure. However, it is still an option for those who want to change their bodies for the better.
If you’re interested in gastric bypass surgery, you should talk to your doctor or read up about it online – there is plenty of information available via the World Wide Web…
Now, let’s talk about cosmetic surgery options for weight loss and obesity. We’ll discuss what liposuction and tummy tucks have to offer…
Is Liposuction an advisable cosmetic weight loss option?
Liposuction is an operation which removes fat deposits under the skin. The plastic surgeon will utilize a long, tubular tool (a cannula) in order to suction fat out of problem areas. This procedure is performed on many different parts of the body, such as the belly, thighs, buttocks and hips. Some people focus on just one area, while others get liposuction on more than one area at one time.
Half a million people get “lipo” in the USA every year. During the procedure, fat is removed from the “deep fat layer” – there are two layers of fat under the skin and this operation removes fat from one of them.
The average cost of liposuction in India is ₹90,000 – ₹3,50,000. However, the amount that a patient pays will really depend on the surface area’s size, as well as the complexity of the procedure. We recommend first consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon before deciding if Liposuction is an advisable weight loss option for you or not.
What are Tummy Tuck Operations?
Tummy tucks are sometimes performed alongside liposuction – however, they are also performed without liposuction. These operations are designed to give the tummy area a sexier and sleeker look. This operation is also known as an abdominoplasty.
Typically, this procedure will be performed as a day operation in a surgical center and the patient will be under general anesthetic. It will tighten every part of the abdominal wall’s tissue and it will also tighten the muscles in the abdomen. Discomfort from this operation will be handled by giving the patient painkillers.
Recovery time will vary – however, most people are up and around after two or three days. Since this procedure is more of an option to touch up and highlight the details of one’s core and midriff, hence it isn’t exactly a recommended first choice for weight loss unless your fat content around the midriff section is considerably less.
