If you have excess body fat in specific areas that does not go away with diet or exercise, you may want to get rid of it for a more defined and contoured body shape. Dr. Carmelo, a plastic surgeon in Dubai, is the surgeon you can rely on to address this issue with liposuction. Make an appointment to meet with Dr. Carmelo for a consultation if you are considering getting liposuction and are interested in getting in touch with our office.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction reshapes and trims down specific parts of your body by removing excess fat deposits. This procedure can be performed on different parts of the body, including the hips, flanks, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, calves, ankles, back, and neck. It can also be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as breast reductions and tummy tucks. Liposuction is ineffective for treating cellulite dimpling, stretch marks, and other skin abnormalities.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision in the skin and inserts a thin, hollow tube called a cannula into the incision. The excess fat beneath the skin is carefully loosened with the cannula that uses ultrasonic energy or high-intensity laser light and is then removed with a special vacuum or suction device attached to the cannula. The suction tube will be moved back and forth to loosen and suck out fat in the treatment area to help you achieve your ideal figure.
Benefits of Liposuction
- Reduce fat. Liposuction effectively reduces fat in stubborn areas that naturally accumulate it. While it is not possible to “spot treat” these areas with diet and exercise, liposuction gives you the power to shrink troublesome pockets of fat in these areas.
- Improve muscle tone. Many people find that no matter how much work they put in at the gym, the muscles they build are obscured behind a layer of stubborn fat. Liposuction sculpts away this fat to reveal hard-earned abs, toned biceps, and other areas of definition.
- Minimal recovery time. This procedure does not require major downtime or recuperation. Most people only need about 1 week away from work and other activities to feel back to normal.
- Versatile treatment. With liposuction, you can treat many areas during the same procedure for a fully customized result. You can also combine liposuction with other body contouring or breast enhancement procedures for a comprehensive body makeover.
During your consultation, Dr. Carmelo will examine the parts of your body that will be treated to determine how much fat needs to be removed to meet your goals.
The doctor will provide pre-operative instructions, such as refraining from taking certain medications before surgery and arranging for someone to drive you home on the night of the procedure.
You may experience minor swelling and bruising following liposuction, but Dr. Carmelo will prescribe some medications to manage any discomfort. He may place small temporary drains to drain any excess blood or fluid. You will have to wait a few days to go back to work and a few weeks to resume strenuous activities.
You will notice your enhanced body contour once the swelling subsides, but it may take up to six months to see the complete result. If you keep your weight stable by exercising regularly and eating healthy, your new slimmer appearance will be permanent.
