Liposuction in Chennai - Weight Loss Treatment

Losing stubborn fat can be a backbreaker. Like many in Chennai, you too might be doing your best at the gym, but there are still specific regions of the body where fat loss is challenging. This is where Liposuction can be useful.

What is Liposuction?

Getting rid of the fat in the hips, thighs, abdomen and arms is not easy for all. This is where a liposuction or fat removal surgery can help. Liposuction is not a weight loss technique and hence will not help loose body weight. However, this surgical aesthetic treatment can give great results to reduce stubborn fat and contour the body in specifc areas.

In Liposuction (aka Lipo), the fat cells between the muscles and skin are removed meticulously using a cannula to contour the body and provide permanent results. Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, is apt for anyone with an ideal body weight but wants to lose stubborn body fat.

Liposuction is performed under general or local anesthesia depending on the body part to be treated and the volume of fat to be removed. Incisions are then made through which a suction device is inserted and the fat is removed.

Traditional liposuction uses a cannula to suck out the loosened fat. The more advanced techniques such as ultrasound, laser or power-assisted liposuction can help with large volumes of fat removal.

Types of Liposuction Techniques

The type of liposuction required is the decision to be made by the surgeon based on various factors such as post-operative risk elements, the extent of fat to be removed, medical history etc.

  1. Tumescent lipsocution - In this type of liposuction, a sterile solution such as salt water mixture is injected to the body part to help stiffen the area. Following which a cannula is inserted and a suction device removes the fat. 
  2. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction - In this procedure a metal rod is inserted and it breaks down the fat. The fat is later suctioned out through a cannula. 
  3. Laser-assisted liposuction - This procedure is similar to the ultrasound technique but uses a high intensity laser light to break down the fat. 
  4. Power-assisted liposuction - This type of liposuction is assisted with rapid vibration of the cannula to break down down fat which is then removed with the help of the suction device. 


What is most important in a Liposuction Treatment is the skill of the Surgeon and hence it is important to get the procedure done by a board-certified surgeon. The surgeon and the facility must be equipped to provide top quality results and medical assistance.

How to choose the right surgeon?

  • To ensure that the surgeon stays updated about the latest information around liposuction and the safety protocols, they must be a member of APSI (Association of Plastic Surgeons in India).
  • The surgeon’s experience in performing successful liposuction procedures must be assessed. Patients must ask the doctor or concerned hospital to give resources (videos/images) of the past treatments done.
  • The surgeon must be available for post operative care and follow-up visits.
  • The confidence and trust that the patient feels towards the doctor is another important indicator to how comfortable one is with care provider.

  • Contouring Challenges - There can be a wavy or bumpy appearance of the skin after the procedure if done by a surgeon without enough experience. The skin’s elasticity and the healing process also determines the contouring results.
  • Fluid accumulation - if there is fluid accumulation under the skin, the surgeon will have to drain it.
  • Fat embolism - Fat could get accumulated in the blood vessels and result in medical emergency.
  • Damage to body parts such as the kidney or lung - Any glitch in the treatment could lead to major complications such as damage to heart, kidneys or lungs.
