With a lot of people making an attempt to regain their body-shape, liposuction has stepped in as a medical boom that is helping people to meet the aspiration of a fit and fatless body.
Liposuction surgery sculpts the body by eliminating unwanted pockets of exercise and diet-resistant fat from the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breasts), back, arms and neck.
Liposuction is a plastic surgery technique that aims to reduce or eliminate specific accumulations of fat in different areas of the body that do not respond to classic slimming treatments or to the taking of exercise.
From a genetic viewpoint, each one of us is born with a predetermined number of fatty cells. Therefore the hereditary factor will be crucial for the accumulations of fat in the same area as parents, grandparents, children, etc.
At RG Aesthetics, Liposuction is performed on various aspirants under the expert guidance of Dr. Rajat Gupta who offers expert consultation on various fat loss and body contouring surgeries. As per him, when people gain and lose weight, certain areas of the body tend to develop deposits of unwanted fat that can be difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise. Liposuction can offer permanent removal of these fatty cells. Hence it is proving to be most effective and in-demand surgery.
When to consider Liposuction?
- If you have localized areas of fat deposits that are disproportionate with the rest of your body.
- If you would like more definition or a sleeker contour in certain areas of your body.
- If your skin elasticity is good (Liposuction removes fat, but does not tighten skin).
What are the areas that can be treated with liposuction?
Localized areas in the body with stubborn deposits of fat can be treated. This area can be:
- Cheeks, Jowls and Neck
- Upper Arms
- Breast Or Chest Areas
- Abdomen And Waist
- Hips and Buttocks
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Inner Knee
- Calves and Ankles
What are the different types of liposuction?
Suction-assisted liposuction (SAL), the most traditional form of liposuction, draws fat out with a vacuum. This procedure involves the removal of unwanted fatty deposits from specific body parts.
Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) is traditional SAL, but with the use of an addition to increase the motion of the cannula that speeds up fat removal.
MicroAire is a power-assisted liposuction (PAL) technique which was devised to reduce the physical challenges posed by traditional liposuction. The surgical instrument used for MicroAire are fitted with a power-assisted cannula that produces an extremely gentle back and forth movement which helps it to pass through the toughened fibrous tissues of fat with ease, whilst offering a great precision and making the surgeon’s job remarkably easy. The tissues are not damaged or torn apart, which means that the fat that is removed can be used for autologous grafting of other areas, if the need be. This power-assisted liposuction technique being used at Skinnovation Clinics for the first ever time in Delhi is more viable to cells than other heat-based liposuction methods that usually destroy the fat cells and leave them of no use later.
Hi-Definition Liposuction is an extremely successful technique when it comes to targeting small areas of stubborn fat. It works by selectively removing fat from small areas surrounding specific muscle groups. Thus, the muscles in question become more visible while defining the natural muscle contour. This technique is focused on precision and it removes superficial and deep fat deposits to enhance the underlying musculature. It is quite successful for people looking for defined, muscular and athletic abs. Vaser Hi-Definition is the ultimate answer to people who work-out regularly but are unable to achieve the washboard abs look. It equally works good for people who are tired of carrying a heavy abdomen.
Dr Rajat Gupta is one of the first batch of doctors from India to travel abroad and get hands training on Hi-Definition Vaser Liposuction.
VASER: This procedure involves the use of ultrasound technology in making fat in the body to be soft paving way for the removal of the superficial fat. VASER or Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy and Resonance is again a highly sophisticated and most modern technique used for the first time at RG Aesthetics for performing painless and minimal invasive liposuction. Vaser is performed by using a device that gives out sound waves of very high frequency that help in loosening or liquefying the stubborn fat deposits in small areas. This sound waves producing device which is 3mm in size is inserted trough small incisions which are made after administering local or general anaesthesia. The high-energy ultrasonic (sound) waves that are produced from the device vibrates the fat cells making them considerably loose as they start to melt. After the melting takes place, the sound device is removed and a cannula is inserted for the vacuum suction of fat out of that small area.
LASER assisted helps by disruption of fat cells by laser.
RG Aesthetics is the first centre in Delhi to combine MicroAire or Vaser liposuction techniques. Both techniques work perfectly well for areas like belly, arms, leg, waist, neck, knees, buttocks, thighs, side handles, ankles, calves and male breasts. But, one must remember that more often than not, liposuction makes a part of more than one procedure to bring the body to desired shape and contour. The elasticity of the skin is one of the factors that works in the favour of liposuction.
What is SAFE Liposuction?
SAFE Liposuction as the name goes, is highly safe and reliable technique, which is particularly effective for people looking for absolute body contouring. Skinnovation Clinics is offering SAFE Liposuction Surgery in Delhi under the expert hand of Dr Rajat Gupta. SAFE Liposuction is process of separation, aspiration and fat equalization, which is catching up fast and is changing the way plastic and cosmetic surgeons looked at body contouring. It is a non-thermal, comprehensive, multi-faceted body contouring process that incorporates contour augmentation, redistribution of fat and reduction of fat into a single procedure. Developed by world-renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Simeon Wall Jr., SAFE Liposuction is only available to a few plastic surgeons worldwide and Dr. Gupta happens to be one of those few and perhaps the only one in India. It is a magical way how fat deposits can be treated to give the body an entirely new, sculpted look.
What to expect with Liposuction surgery?
A certain amount of fat is important for our well-being. Directly below the skin we have a layer of fat, known as metabolic fat. This fat, which contains all the vessels and nerves that nourish the skin, is also the thermostat of our temperature.
Between this metabolic layer and the muscle, we have the store or storage of fat. These stores of fat are located in different parts of the body, for example under the chin, the hips, thighs, knees and ankles. This subsidiary fat is suitable for liposuction.
What is the procedure of Liposuction Surgery?
Technical advances in the field of liposuction mean that small area liposuction can also be carried out under local anesthetic by means of sedation. This allows the patient to return home after the completion of the clinical liposuction and to carry on which a normal life except for sport or any activity that involves hard physical effort, after 24 hours, with the appropriate medical authorization.
The technique consists of making a small incision in a hidden place where the fatty area is situated. Next, a pencil-sized cannula is inserted. Which is connected by means of a plastic tube to a suction apparatus.
We only suction fat from the “storage” area, never from the metabolic area. This procedure, which causes no pain, is of approximately 25 minutes’ duration for each area. When the suction is completed, a suturing stitch is put in place on the above-mentioned incisions. Immediately afterward of a dressing is put in place, compressing the suctioned area.
Postoperatively antibiotics therapy is prescribed for 48 hours.
What is the recovery like of a liposuction surgery?
The recovery time depends upon the area on which you are undergoing the surgery and any associated procedures if any. Liposuction patient can go out of hospital the same day.
A patient experiences mild to moderate pain for first 72 hours for which medicines are prescribed. Post 3 days, the patient has mild swelling that gradually disappears in the next 2-3 weeks. Depending upon area of the surgery, most patient can join back work after 2-3 days if in sitting job. Strenuous activities are to be restricted for 3-4 weeks. The timelines, however, differ on individual basis.
Patient is advised to wear pressure garment during first 4-6 weeks post surgery to keep the contours as designed during surgery.
What is a Compression Garment?
A compression garment or belt is recommended by the surgeon after cosmetic procedures like liposuction, breast reduction, gynecomastia and tummy tuck. It helps to reduce the swelling by applying pressure on tissues and pushing the fluid back into veins and lymphatic vessels. The surgeon will ask you to wear the compression belt 24/7 for at least 3 weeks except for bathing and self-cleaning times.
At RG Aesthetics, we strongly recommend the use of a compression belt, as it brings the following benefits to help the procedure become completely effective.
- Postoperative Swelling is Controlled
- Prevents Collection of Left-over Fluids
- Contour and Final Appearance Are Improved
- It Helps to Improve on Scarring
At RG Aesthetics, custom belts are made as per the patient’s size. Custom sizes are required because one size doesn’t fits all and the technical requirements as per the procedure also vary. A perfect compression belt after liposuction is the tool to achieve better contouring and to sustain the results. The customized compression garments is monogrammed by RG Aesthetics Logo.
What is Crisalix 3D Simulation?
Crisalix technique equipped with 3D glasses is an innovative way to envision the results of cosmetic procedures, breast shaping surgeries and other facial procedures, beforehand, without the actual procedure done. It simulates the after results to be viewed by the patient and get satisfied with the appearance, before making a decision for surgery. This is the first ever, breakthrough Web-based 3D simulation app for plastic surgery.
The technology is simple. During consultation session, our surgeon will use a 3D camera to capture your current images from different angles and then upload it into the advanced Crisalix 3D imaging software. This helps to create the base for further specifications to be added to your body structure, which becomes visible in the enhanced 3D images. The software is programmed to accept the specifics and add to your figure and show the results of your chosen procedure on your very own 3D model.
Thus, it is easy and sensible to have a look at self before investing a lot of time, money and effort in a cosmetic procedure. With Crisalix, you can see your likely results within minutes. And if you want to change something about your appearance as seen in 3D image, you can work with our expert Dr. Rajat Gupta, to tweak the details of the procedure until your 3D image matches the results desired by you post surgery.
Post Surgery Measures:
As oedema become re-absorbed and the bruising disappears you will notice the appearance of asymmetries and irregularities in the suctioned area, with some areas more hardened than others. This is normal and tends to disappear within a few weeks.
We recommend that after a week you come to our clinic for the removal of the “sealing” stitch, and for a check-up
