How do you bail out the excess fats?
Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgery, where subcutaneous fat is aspirated by use of a blunt canula attached to a vacuum pump. Liposuction involves vacuuming fat from areas including the thighs, love handle, tummy and arms, which have become increasingly popular among cosmetic surgery.
Please note that liposuction should not be considered as an alternative to losing weight but aim for body contouring. The suitable candidates for liposuction are people with specific area of stubborn fats, which is resistant to diet and exercise.
There are several methods used to melt fat such as the laser, ultrasound, vibration, water jet, and radiofrequency being the latest. Each method has its own pros and cons. In Alaxis, we have worked with most of these and decided that a combination would give the best results.
The liposuction procedure combines the use of ultrasound, vibration and radiofrequency. Ultrasound results in more even and thorough fat lysis, vibration for efficient fat removal and shaping and radiofrequency for skin tightening. The goal is to achieve efficient fat removal and good skin contraction.
We adopt a combination of techniques such as the Vibroliposuction and Body tite to provide effective body contouring.
The procedure is performed under Sedation. We then inject local anaesthesia in the form of tumemenseanaesthesia.
Downtime is about 3-5 days. Most patients can resume work on third day. Bruising and swelling are to be expected post system. Patients may experience bruising of about 2 weeks and swelling of about 3-6 weeks to diminish completely.
You will be provided with a post-liposuction garment to be worn for 4 weeks, in the first 2weeks to wear about 20 hrs a day and subsequent 2 weeks to wear 12 hrs a day.
Post care treatment
Patients are required for post care treatments for further skin tightening and firming. We provide external radio frequency treatments for skin firming and IPL to minimize scars. The post care starts after one month of liposuction.
