Are you a candidate for liposuction?
Many men and women consider liposuction as a way to help them achieve their ideal body – but the procedure isn’t necessarily right for everyone. In general, you could be considered an ideal candidate for liposuction if you:
- are close to your ideal weight
- understand that liposuction is not intended for dramatic weight loss – it’s for removing stubborn pockets of fat and refining your body shape
- are in good general health
- are committed to a healthy lifestyle
- have been unable to achieve your ideal body shape through diet and exercise alone
How does the procedure work?
A small incision is made in the skin for each area to be treated. A narrow metal tube (cannula) is inserted through the incision into the fatty area and by working the tube back and forth, the fat is shaved off in tunnels and evacuated through a tubing attached to a suction machine or suction syringe. The suctioned tunnels and spaces are then collapsed by the use of a compression garment to create the new contour.
When fat tissue is suctioned from under the skin, it leaves small tunnels and empty pockets. The purpose of a compression dressing or girdle is to collapse these spaces, to allow healing to take place.
The area treated with liposuction may be strapped with an elastic tape or a girdle. This will minimize bruising and swelling and provide a degree of support for the skin, which will be relatively loose after the operation, particularly when the swelling settles down.
The elasticized material of the girdle helps to keep even pressure on the areas treated, minimize bruising and swelling and to even out the skin. This process will help the skin to redistribute itself more evenly and minimizes the risk of skin sagging and irregularities.
