Liposuction is a procedure by which excess fat is removed from the body. Fat is liquefied and taken out by a small hole using a thin metallic cannula and a special syringe. This latest technique is called tumescent tulip liposuction. It is much simpler and safer than the traditional MAYO liposuction which involved thicker cannula, long rubber tubes and a sucker machine. There are no stitches or visible scar. Up to 3 to 6 liters of fat can be extracted in a single sitting. After the procedure patients can go home the same day. Abdomen and hip are the common places treated. Buttock, flanks, back folds, double chin, thighs and arms can also be reduced by this wonderful procedure.
After liposuction HDL (protective lipo protein in the blood) increases. As a result risk of heart attack and paralysis from stroke is decreased. Liposuction also improves Insulin tolerance and hence can prevent latent diabetic patients from developing full blown diabetes.
Liposuction is the commonest plastic procedure in the west (more than 2,00,000 cases done each year in the USA alone). We use tumescent tulip liposuction technique, which is very easy and safe. Treated areas do not recollect fat even if one overeats, this is because the fat cells are removed during liposuction. But the importance of healthy diet and regular exercise is always emphasised. Already more than a thousand patients have undergone slimming/beautification at the Cosmetic Surgery Center. They include showbiz people, doctors, engineers, students and nurses. tumescent tulip liposuction technique has been used in all these patients.
Abdominoplasty is the plastic surgery for pendulous abdomen. Here liposuction alone will not be beneficial. In abdominoplasty operation excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen is removed, lax abdominal muscles tightened and the umbilicus is repositioned at a higher point. Finally upper abdominal skin flap is pulled down and stitched just above the groin level. This makes the abdomen look flat.
