BREAST LIFT OVERVIEW

+ UNDERGOING A CONTOURING LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE

Prior to liposuction surgery, a patient may first be marked with a marker while in an upright position so the surgeon can determine the course of treatment for each site to be sculpted. The body tissues expand when a person is in a supine position, or lying down, so it is important that the doctor views the areas as they will normally exist. This pre-surgery meeting also allows the patient and doctor to discuss aesthetic concerns for a final time prior to the procedure. The areas to be liposuctioned will be treated with a liquid anesthetic solution. The combination of medications will reduce inflammation and swelling, help to constrict blood vessels to lessen blood loss and bruising, and will make the procedure easier to perform. The patient is sedated and the procedure can commence. While other plastic surgery procedures are performed under general anesthesia, Doctors Plastic Surgery typically completes liposuction under a combination of general anesthesia or local sedation. To begin the surgery, small incisions that are 2-4 millimeters in length are created and cleverly camouflaged in the skin so the cannula, or thin Liposuction vacuum tube, can access the subdermal fat deposits that lies below the skin. The device will be used to manipulate and permanently remove bulk fat that can distort a person’s silhouette or cause dimpling of the skin (cellulite). Different sized cannulas can be employed to treat different areas of the body. A large, powerful cannula may be more effective for areas of the body like the abdomen or buttocks and thighs, while a smaller cannula can treat smaller regions, like the breasts or neck. The results of a liposuction procedure will be immediately noticeable, but due to swelling and tissue inflammation, the full results can take months to take shape.

+ AESTHETIC IMPROVEMENT THROUGH LIPOSUCTION

Permanent fat removal through liposuction is successfully performed on many areas of the body. Women tend to request treatment to their back fat, buttocks, flanks (commonly referred to as “love handles”), and abdominal area. While nonsurgical treatments may trim the body by centimeters, liposuction is employed to remove inches from the figure and eliminate fat. Men can expect similar results and frequently desire the abdominal area, the chest, and flanks to be trimmed of extra fat.

+ SURGICAL CANDIDATES CONSIDERING LIPOSUCTION

While traditionally thought of as a surgery that women undergo, perhaps due to the higher content of body fat in the female form, liposuction is equally effective in men as it is in women. The genders tend to accumulate extra adipose tissue (fat) in different areas of the body due to hormones, genetics, and even childbirth in women, but liposuction surgery can be tailored to maximize the femininity or masculinity of a figure, as requested. Men and women tend to have different aesthetic goals. Women may welcome the accumulation of fat in the breasts which can create a fuller bust, while this same fullness in men can cause insecurities. Those seeking permanent fat suctioning through liposuction should be in reasonably good shape and not suffer from any condition that may cause serious complications during surgery. Body sculpting is an elective procedure and should not compromise patient health in any way. Fat removal surgery will not improve one’s health, but it can positively impact the appearance of the body by smoothing areas affected by an accumulation of fat. People who are overweight but proportionate in their appearance may benefit more from a lifestyle change, such as a focus on diet and exercise, than liposuction.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BREAST Revisions

+ HOW MANY AREAS CAN BE TREATED DURING A SINGLE SESSION?

Patients can safely undergo liposculpture fat reduction on three or four areas of the body during a surgery. If a patient wants to schedule another session, different areas can be treated at a later date.

+ WHAT IS TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION?

During tumescent liposuction, a solution containing anesthetics is injected below the skin. This process ensures pain management and promotes the constriction of blood vessels to control bleeding. This local anesthesia solution eliminates the need for liposuction to be performed under general anesthesia and replaces traditional IV fluids. The solution also causes to the fat to become firm, allowing it to be more easily removed from the body.

+ IS LIPOSUCTION PERMANENT?

The effects of a cosmetic fat removal treatment last indefinitely, but as the body changes, so will the areas that were altered. If a patient tends to gain weight in certain sections of the body and puts on a few pounds, extra bulk can accumulate. Gravity, the aging process, and illness can all impact liposuctioned areas over time.

+ WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS FOR LIPOSUCTION?

Each recovery process is different, and you should consult with your surgeon after the process. You will experience swelling and bruising, and you will need to wear a compression garment in order to get the full benefits and maximal skin retraction.
