Today we are living in times where physical looks play an important part in the society. It is no longer a taboo to go under the surgeon’s knife to improve our looks and have a more aesthetic physical profile. We heard of many bollywood and hollywood actors undergo cosmetic surgeries and procedures to enhance their body profile. This is also true for the not so famous and well known.
More and more people today are experimenting with aesthetic cosmetic procedures. One of the procedures is called Liposuction. We met up with Dr Vipul Nanda,a well known cosmetic surgeon in Delhi NCR to know more about this procedure.
As told by Dr Vipul Nanda to Arjun Bisht
What is a Liposuction?
Liposuction removes unwanted deposits of excess fats in order to improve body appearance. This procedure is also called body contouring when different areas of the body are addressed simultaneously to create better body contour.
Am I a good candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction is not used for weight loss, rather to correct problem areas or fat bulges. The fat removed does not weigh a lot, so patients should expect a shape change, not a weight change.
How long the results of liposuction last?
As long as the patient maintains a healthy life-style, including exercise and a sensible diet, liposuction results are long lasting. Once the fat cells have been removed from an area there is no longer a preferential fat storage area and any fat gain will be distributed more evenly over the rest of the body.
Does liposuction leave scars?
Incisions made during liposuction are generally very small and put in areas that are inconspicuous. In most cases it will be difficult to see where the incisions (ports) were originally made.
What areas of the body can be treated with liposuction?
This procedure can address areas such as chin, neck, cheeks, upper arms, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, and ankle.
When can I return to normal activities?
Because of the significant decrease in swelling and decrease in inflammation and pain after surgery, patients are able to return to normal physical activities very soon after the procedure. There is no limitation of physical activity other than what common sense would dictate. Some patients are able to return to jogging, golf, or light aerobic exercise within a week after surgery. Some patients do find the soreness after surgery to be more significant than others, but on the average, most patients are surprised at how quickly they are able to return to normal activity.
