VASER and high definition liposuction in Dubai

Liposuction (Suction-Assisted Lipectomy Surgery)

Liposuction is a medical procedure that is designed to remove fat deposits from specific areas of the body. Some of the most common target areas of this procedure are the face, neck, abdomen, trunk, upper arms, buttocks, thighs, and hips. It is also slim down the knees, calves, and ankles on some occasions.

While it is not viable as an alternative to weight reduction, it can help in helping achieve one’s desired figure by removing localised deposits of fatty tissue that refuse to be eliminated through proper diet and regular exercise. Liposuction in Dubai can be partnered with our body contouring and slimming techniques, such as abdominoplasty, facelift, or thigh lift to smoothen loose skin.

Who are candidates of liposuction?

Individuals whose weight fall within relatively normal ranges, but have excess fat in specific body areas are candidates of this procedure. To produce better results, skin tightening procedures can be paired with the treatment. This eliminates stretch marks, cellulite, excess skin, and blemishes that are brought about by weight loss and natural aging, which cannot be addressed by liposuction.

Specifics of liposuction surgery

During a procedure, a hollow metal surgical instrument called a cannula is inserted through a small incision to remove the unwanted fat. The cannula, which is attached to a vacuum, draws out the fatty tissue in the target area carefully and safely.

Some cases require the use of a special cannula that is capable of emitting laser energy, ultrasonic energy, or a jet of water to gently break down fatty deposits. Depending on the situation and the needs of the patient, a surgeon may suggest liposuction alone, or a combination of with another body contouring procedure.

Your surgeon may also choose to perform the procedure with the patient in local anesthesia, general anesthesia, or complete sedation. In some special cases, tumescent liposuction is performed on the patient, which includes the administration of a fluid containing diluted local anesthetic and epinephrine into target fatty deposits. Through this technique, discomfort during the surgery is reduced, along with post-operative bruising and blood loss. To aid with the recovery, dressings and compression support garments are recommended to patients.

Compression support garments and dressings are worn to control swelling and promote healing.
