Liposculpture and Liposuction

Dr. Giorgio Fischer, a gynecologist from Rome, Italy, invented the liposuction procedure in 1974.
Dr. Illouz, a French plastic surgeon, made the first purely cosmetic use of the procedure four years later.

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is an aesthetic surgery operation that removes fat from many different sites on the human body. liposuction can remove localised collections of tiny fatty tissue in many areas of the body. By using a high vaccum device, the surgeon can suction fat from the legs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, back, arms, face and neck with help of a cannula.This surgery may be done under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia as a day care surgery. The main purpose of liposuction is to reshape one or more areas of your body, not to reduce body weight. Liposuction is typically used on resistant areas that have not responded well to diet and exercise. These locked fat areas are often on the outer thighs and hips on women and the waist and back on men. The face, neck, abdomen, back, buttocks, legs, and upper arms are all commonly treated areas. Liposuction is neither a substitute for proper diet and exercise nor a cure for obesity. To get the most from this procedure, you should be of average weight with extra fat localized in specific areas. It is also important that you have healthy, elastic skin with the capacity to shrink evenly after surgery. Since liposuction removes only fat, it cannot eliminate dimpling or correct skin laxity. The tumescent technique, superficial liposculpture, ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty ,power assisted liposuction or other variations of conventional liposuction may be recommended by your surgeon, depending on the specific needs and the surgeon's preferred methods of treatment.

If your skin has lost much of its elasticity, your plastic surgeon may recommend a skin tightening procedure (abdominoplasty, thigh lift, buttock lift or arm lift). These procedures are effective but leave more extensive scars.

Following surgery, you will wear a dressing or a pressure garment, for six weeks, to promote skin shrinkage and to minimize swelling and skin discoloration. In recent years, improved techniques have made liposuction safer, easier, and less painful. These newer techniques include:

Tumescent liposuction
In this technique, large amount of an anaesthetic solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine is injected into the fatty tissue before traditional liposuction is done. Tumescent liposuction may not require general anaesthesia.

Vaser Liposuction
Vaser or Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance is the trade name for an ultrasound-assisted liposuction system. During Vaser liposuction procedure, fatty tissues are extracted from your body by using sound waves. These sound waves emulsify targeted fat cells. The sound energy gets transmitted through small probes. These sound waves enter the holes and vibrate rapidly to produce ultrasound energy. This energy that penetrates inside your body breaks the cellular membrane and discharges the lipid content.

Vaser liposuction has the advantages of lower blood loss & improved skin retraction & is being offered at the Image Medical Center

Laser-assisted liposuction
This technique uses low-energy waves to liquefy the fat, which is removed through a small cannula.

Liposuction is a routinely done surgery at Image medical centre and Dr Anup Dhir has extensive experience f all these techniques and has been organising teaching courses on newer techniques.
