Meeting body standards set by modern supermodels and actresses is increasingly becoming an aspiration for men and women today. To satisfy the needs of the people, various surgeries and techniques have been invented and refined over time. One of the most common of these aesthetic surgeries is called Liposuction or liposuction surgery. It is a technique through which extraction of extra deposits of fat from the various parts of the body is undertaken. This fat can also be reused to build up other parts of the body such as breast enlargement surgery, face volumization, correction of post liposuction deformities, augmentation of male and female genitalia etc.
This surgery is an intricate and complex procedure unlike what most patients consider and therefore, a fully trusted and experienced surgeon must be consulted. Dr. Mohan Thomas Aesthetics is a well-known Cosmetic Surgery center where Dr. Mohan Thomas and Dr. James D’silva are the surgeons performing liposuction surgery. They are known not only known for the professionalism and the perfection of their surgeries but also for the utmost care they provide to their patients.
There are multiple types of liposuction based on the technologies used during the procedure. Therefore, one must, with the help of an expert, figure out the method of liposuction most suitable to their case:
- Laser liposuction
Using lasers has become one of the most common trends in the cosmetic world today. This technology uses the energy and heat generated from the laser to burn fat. This is used because when the extra fat is liquefied beforehand, it makes the rest of the process of liposuction less invasive and gentler on the patient. It also gives a more satisfactory and smooth finish with skin tightening due to collagen regeneration.
However, as attractive as this technology might look, one must be fully aware of its shortcomings along with the benefits. Some people are misled that since local anaesthesia could not be used in the traditional method of liposuction hence traditional is more painful and Laser Liposuction is less. In contrast, both methods allow the use of local anaesthesia and the only reason Laser is used is to lyse the fat cells. No reliable research has revealed that laser liposuction is more effective and safer than the traditional method, so one should not be mistaken. Even if one chooses to undergo laser liposuction, one must be in touch with a specialist to understand its implications as well as risks and benefits.
This technique is also known as Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction. In this method, the energy of ultrasound is taken into use to break down the fat cells which releases the liquid fat. Then, using a vacuum/ suction, the excess fat is sucked out and fat is removed. The ultrasound probe is placed directly in contact with the extra fat through an incision made in the vicinity of the target area taking care that it is not brought very close to the skin surface.
It has been found that this technique of liposuction minimizes post-surgery complications such as blood loss, swelling and bruising, and the course of the procedure is also comparatively less complex. Moreover, this technique is the most effective while treating a challenging area such as the love handles or the back. Dr. Mohan Thomas and Dr. James D’silva almost exclusively use VASER liposuction to chisel bodies be it creation of 6 packs, toned buttocks or narrowing of a waist.
The treatment gives the desired effects only when it is performed by an experienced and well-trained surgeon. The patient must also be aware that this technique could sometimes lead to a slightly longer but hidden scar since the incision is larger than the traditional technique.
- Power-assisted liposuction
It is the best and the most chosen option for those patients who have undergone previous liposuction and have a larger deposit of resistant fat that has to be addressed. The machine helps perform the task faster and is efficient in attacking a large area at once, thus enabling the surgeon to finish larger areas quicker.
This technique works just like traditional liposuction. The significant difference in the working of the two is that the tube inserted moves and cuts the fat which allows the surgeon to remove more fat at once and more effectively. However, the results of the two do not differ to a great extent.
- High Definition
This technique of liposuction is used in cases requiring more detailed and in-depth work. The course of action is constituted of two steps. First, this technique is used, usually on the torso, to define, refine and enhance the abdominal muscles. Second, it helps carve the muscles as desired.
The excess fat is first removed using the traditional liposuction technique. Then, to get the desired and appealing appearance of the muscles, the surgeon reduces the excess fat in a specific manner and from particular spots which causes the muscles to be chiseled and fat grafted where and if needed. Since this procedure is a detailed one, the patient could expect the process itself as well as the time taken until full recovery to be longer.
