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
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.

This gives body contouring a high definition by creating more beautiful shapes like six pack abs in men etc.
Vaser Liposuction Technique: VASER is an ultrasonic canula that disperses energy improving fat disruption and removal. It is a still process in which fat deposits are removed from beneath the skins and the appearance of the body part becomes better. Tumescent liquid, or a saline solution mixed with anesthetics, is injected into the body area being treated. Ultrasonic probes, inserted into the fatty tissue gently break the fat cells down. The vibration gently disengages and loosens the fat cells and ultimately emulsifies the tumescent fluid that has been infused into the body area. While the emulsification is in process, a small cannula is used to remove the liquid and the fat cells. This process doesn’t let much of skin to go loose as it offers the surgeon a great deal of control and you get the smooth, contoured look. Vaser liposuction is specifically designed to loosen fat but to protect and preserve other tissues and by using the saline solution, hence there is typically less bleeding and bruising. Along with fat removal, Vaser helps in skin tightening simultaneously.

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 milk 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 pressure garment?
Compression garment is a short body-belt that is recommended to be used post surgery if the liposuction is performed abdominal and /or for the hip area; body-belt/slacks if it is for the external part of the thighs; and elastic knee-supporter or ankle-supporter for these respective areas.
These body-belts should restrict in a comfortable way, as they must be worn day and night for the first week and during the day in the following weeks, especially when having to walk or stand for long periods.
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
