Liposuction

Plastic surgeons unswervingly report that liposuction is one of the most prevalent cosmetic procedures performed today.

In general, the body metabolism rate will decrease with age resulting in the accumulation of excess fat along various body parts such as the belly, hips, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, etc. This collection of fat will create changes in figure, making one’s body look less attractive or less passable.

Liposuction can resolve problems with regards to excess fat. Its objective is not to reduce weight, but to eliminate accumulated fat for MTF patients in Mexico under specific body parts.

Liposuction Defined

LIPOSUCTION is a surgical procedure that eradicates fat deposits from under the skin. Liposuction is best for MTF top surgery patients with wearisome, localized fat deposits that are resistant to the effects of diet and exercise.

Liposuction is a method of body sculpting, body contouring or “spot-reduction” and can help MTF patients achieve the appearance goals they desire. Liposuction can be done virtually anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, back, thighs, knees, calves, ankles and upper arms. In addition, facial liposuction is often performed to address the jowls, cheeks and neck.

Liposuction is also referred to as lipoplasty and suction-assisted lipectomy.

Procedure for Liposuction

Using a marker, your surgeon in Mexico will mark the areas of your body to remove unwanted fat. Liposuction is normally performed under general anesthesia, but local anesthesia may be used.

Various types of advanced wetting solutions are used in liposuction:

Dry

Before wetting methods succeeded, surgeons performed dry methods, which resulted in blood loss and bruising.

Wet

Involves the infusion of 100 to 300 milliliters of fluid into each treatment site. With the wet technique, 25% of suctioned fluid is blood.

Super Wet

The super-wet technique involves the infusion of a greater amount of fluid than the wet technique – the amount of fluid is approximately equal to the amount of fat to be removed. Less than 1% of what is removed is blood.

Tumescent

This comprises an even greater amount of fluid than is used in the super-wet technique. The surgeon will infuse three to six times as much fluid as the volume of the aspirate (fat, fluid and blood content) to be removed.

What Is a Cannula?

A cannula is a long, hollow instrument that is connected to the fat-suctioning device used during liposuction. When inserted through incisions in the skin, it enables the plastic surgeon to suction out the fat.

Fat removal is attained under different options:

Traditional Suction-Assisted Liposuction

Insertion of cannula through a tiny incision for removing the fat cells. The surgeon moves the cannula back and forth through the fat layer to break up fat, and then suction out the excess fat.

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction

Inserts a special cannula through small “access” incisions. The cannula emits sound waves to help break up the fat, making it easier to vacuum.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

Includes a motorized cannula to break up fatty tissue that will then be vacuumed out that is inserted through tiny incisions.

Laser-Assisted Liposuction

Employs a small incision and the insertion of a laser fiber probe that produces a burst of energy to liquefy the fat before eradication.

Body-Jet liposuction

Introduces a thin, fan-shaped jet that jolts water to loosen fat cells from connective tissue while simultaneously vacuuming. It is sometimes called water-jet assisted liposuction or water-assisted liposuction.

Recovery Stages

The speediness and relief level of your liposuction in Mexico recovery will be contingent on many factors, including the method employed, the volume of fat detached, surgeon’s skill set and your physical health and suppleness.

The surgeon may insert drains to help reduce blood and fluid out of the incision sites. You will be given clear instructions on how to care for your drains and incisions during your liposuction recovery.

Expect initial mild-to-moderate pain and uneasiness after your liposuction procedure. This can be lessened with prescription or over-the-counter medications.

MTF patients will wear a compression garment over the treated area to minimize swelling and allow the body adjustment to the new contours.

Swelling and bruising is common after liposuction and tends to resolve within a week.

Risks and Side Effects

While liposuction may seem like a harmless procedure to remove unwanted fat, in reality it is a surgical procedure that should be taken seriously.

In general, liposuction risks include: Anesthesia complications, Pulmonary embolism, Hematoma, Seroma (collection of fluid under the skin), Skin discoloration, Skin numbness, dimpling, infection, and scarring.
