5 Things You Need To Know About Liposuction
Liposuction is a body contouring or sculpting procedure
Liposuction is a body contouring or sculpting procedure, not a weight losing or weight reduction treatment. Depending on the area or the number of areas to be liposuctioned, only 2000cc to 3000cc of fat can be safely removed.
Liposuction and Obesity
If you are obese, you may be considered as a high risk candidate and may not qualify to undergo liposuction. The reason for this is that chronic medical conditions like diabetes, heart or coronary diseases, metabolic problems, etc. may be present. Effects of liposuction in obese may also not be appreciable. It is therefore recommended that patients with BMI of 30 or greater need to lose some weight to qualify to undergo Liposuction.
Overzealous removal of fats may result to skin “rippling”. This is caused by excess fat removal making the skin very thin (having less fat) and thus cannula tracks under it become visible (the rippling or multiple wave effect). In our Centre, we make sure this complication is avoided by removing only enough fat.
Safety in Liposuction
It will be more safe if your Cosmetic Surgeon is board certified and has a background in General Surgery on top of his fellowship in Cosmetic/Aesthetic Surgery. This will put the surgeon in good position to avoid intra-operative accident of abdominal penetration in tummy liposuction.
Liposuction Laboratory Exams
Several laboratory (blood exams) and ancillary procedures (X-ray and ECG) are usually requested by the cosmetic surgeon prior to liposuction. A cardio-pulmonary clearance from a cardiologist or pulmunologist is requested for those over 30 or 35 years of age. Those younger patients may undergo the same steps if the doctor find it necessary.
