Liposuction - Cheeks

Book Appointment

Liposuction is a surgery that utilises a suctioning method to eliminate fat from an explicit region of the body, like the mid-region, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, chin or even neck. Liposuction is said to even out and contour these regions. In this procedure, the fat is taken out through an empty instrument, known as a cannula. The cannula is then embedded under the skin wherein, a strong, high-pressure vacuum will be applied to the cannula. This vacuum will suction out the fat cells from areas that have excessive fat accumulation. 

It should be understood that liposuction procedure will permanently eliminate the fat cells, adjusting the shape of the body. However, on the off chance that the patient does not lead a healthy way of life after the procedure, there is a risk of all the excess fat cells that were previously removed, becoming bigger.

  • Tumescent liposuction: This is the most sought after traditional technique, where your doctor injects a sterile solution into the area of treatment, where the fat is to be eliminated. This solution consists of saline - which is salt water - combined with substances called lidocaine and epinephrine. This solution will make it easier for suctioning out the fat with lesser blood loss, discomfort and pain. 
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL): This technique makes use of sound wave energy beneath the skin to destroy the walls of the fat cells. This also liquifies the fat, for it to be suctioned out smoothly. 

Laser liposuction: Also known as the smartlipo, this laser liposuction technique makes use of laser technology for producing a burst of radio frequency energy for liquifying the fat. This method is commonly used for midsection liposuction, arm liposuction or chin liposuction
