For some people in Chennai, Liposuction has literally been a God send. For other people the procedure has caused them a lot more harm than good. There is a balance though. For those wondering, whether as a surgical procedure, is liposuction safe?Yes liposuction can be 100% safe, if done the right way and by an experienced board certified surgeon. A lot of people in our city have heard of liposuction but they are not quite sure about what it is.
It is a serious procedure although many times it is blown off as a simple process. It is not simple and it is not an easy procedure. Having someone with experience and the credentials to perform the surgery is the only real option for safety’s sake.
Basically liposuction removes the sub cutaneous fat off or your thighs, belly, back or arms and buttocks. It helps to sculpt you and make you look svelte. You cannot however, lose all your body fat. You will see a difference once the area has had time to heal.
A small incision is made and a long wand like vacuum device is inserted and the fat is literally sucked out of your body. There are a lot of improvements to the contour of your body that can be done with this procedure. You can achieve more of an hour glass shape and get a flatter tummy by using this procedure.
Is Liposuction Safe?
You should know that there are some risks involved with Liposuction. The safest amount of fat to be removed with any one procedure of this kind is 6-8 lbs of fat. If more fat has to be removed than optimally separate procedures need to be set up a few weeks apart. Removing too much fat in one procedure heightens the possibility of serious complications.
Serious complications can include infection, scarring and in the worst case scenario shock. So to answer your question – is liposuction safe? Yes, but ideally you should seek a board certified surgeon who has performed the procedure many times before and has an excellent track record.
Keep Your Expectations Realistic
A lot of people in Chennai also think of liposuction as a way to lose weight. This is NOT a weight loss method. You will lose the weight that is removed in fat but you will only lose that weight from the area that you had the procedure on.
If you walk in at 100 kilos don’t expect to leave looking like you are 60 kilos! You will see a noticeable difference but you will not see 40 kilos worth. You also should know that liposuction does not remove cellulite! A lot of people mistakenly believe that cellulite is what disappears first when they have this procedure in many cases there is no change to the amount of cellulite that you have.
What you can expect is a shapelier you. You can expect a flatter stomach if you are having your abdomen done, thinner more shapely thighs if that is what you are having done or more defined buttocks. You should also keep in mind that an allover liposuction is not likely in one visit!
