Liposuction

This is an effective surgical method through which small incisions  (0.3-0.5 cm ) are used to pump out oil from the body using the vacuum pump.

At the same time, it should be noted that liposuction is not a method used to  combat obesity.

Fat accumulation predominantly occurs in genetically conditioned places ( outer tighs, buttocks, abdomen, inner thighs and chin area) and it is impossible to eliminate such fat through dietotherapy.

 

Some non-traditional zones for the accumulation of fat are  "Bisons kuzi"  cheeks, shoulders, and a back. Contemporary Studies revealed that local accumulation of fat in these areas do not respond to stress hormones that cause fat burning. This explains the failure of dietotherapy for body correction in these areas.

 

Fat tissue distribution depends on hereditary factors and gender. Losing weight results into a consequence of reduced fat tissue mass, though the contours of the body remains unchanged. Thus liposuction represents the optimal method for correcting the body shapes.

Georgia's first suction-assisted liposuction was conducted in early 90s. In 2001, the first held ultrasound liposuction was performed. In addition to liposuction, a method or lipfilling, where the patient’s own fat is injected subcutaneously, is used.

The first successful liposuction was conducted in 1974 by the Italian gynecologist G. Fischer using the gynecological instruments. And the patient was his wife.

1977 Illouz and Fournier developed and used blunt cannula for liposuction. In 1985 J. Klein has developed a special solution for performing liposuction ( liposuction tumescent ) .

A pioneer in ultrasound liposuction is Zocci.

Clear indication for liposuction is a  the existence of local fat clogs. Such fat clogs can be in several places together, for example.: outer thighs, buttocks, abdomen.

 

The operation is mainly carried out under local anesthesia, but can be performed under general anesthesia as well. Depending on areas where the operation is conducted the duration of the surgery lasts 30 minutes - 3 hour. The incision in the skin does not exceed 0.5 cm -.

Before the surgery takes place the areas for liposuction are marked . The operation begins with entering a special solution in these zones .

Special blunt cannula , vacuum pump fat is pumped out. After the operation, the patient wears a special compressor Lingerie for 4 weeks .

The patients is transferred on outpatient treatment a few hours later.

The patient can return to work 2-3 days after surgery.

Stitches are removed in 10-12 days. Sometimes loss of sensitivity can be observed temporarily in liposuction areas; as well as edemas and hemorrhage, which remain for 2-3 weeks.

 

In order to achieve the desired effects of the postoperative period, it is recommended to go through the rehabilitation program, the first component of the program is manual or drainage massage , especially if the skin shows marked cellulitis. The skin should be given the best possible opportunity for equal compression.

The final effect will appear 2-3 months after liposuction .

Physical activity is not restricted. Scars do not remain.
