Over the years we have become increasing aware of our body image and one of the key issues affecting this is unwanted areas of “Fat”. During this same period Liposuction developed as a main stream cosmetic surgery procedure. In essence it is a simple, minimally invasive technique that improves the body’s overall shape by removing excess fat located between the skin and muscle and can be used to treat almost all areas of the body. The procedure involves the use of a small stainless steel tube, called a cannula and a suction device to remove the fat.
The cannula is connected to a powerful suction pump and inserted into the fat through small incisions in the skin. Fat removal is accomplished from a combination of the surgeon manually manipulating the cannula to agitate and dislodge the fat and the suction from the cannula which removes the fat creating tiny tunnels through the fatty layers. After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse and thus result in an improved body contour.
There are many people who have undergone traditional liposuction which has been a mainstream cosmetic surgery procedure for almost 30 years and achieved excellent results.
The downside to this procedure is that it will normally be done under general anaesthetic and will require a minimum one night stay in hospital.
