Liposuction surgery


Published on

Liposuction, also called lipo, is a kind of cosmetic surgery which breaks up and "sucks" fat from different possible area of the body, most commonly the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back. The fat is separated through a empty instrument - a cannula - which is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula. for more details please visit the site

Liposuction surgery

  2. 2. INTRODUCTION Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses cannulas and vacuum to remove fat deposits underneath the skin. These fat deposits are usually present at abdomen, arms, back, breasts, buttocks, thighs and legs.
  3. 3. TYPE OF LIPOSUCTION SURGERY Types of Liposuction  Liposuction procedures vary depending on:  the location of fat to be removed.  the type of fat.  the goals of the patient.  plastic surgeon's recommendation.
  4. 4. TYPES OF LIPOSUCTION SURGERY  Laser-Assisted Liposuction. Tumescent  Liposuction Suction assisted liposuction PAL (Power Assisted Liposuction) UAL (Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction).
  5. 5. Laser-Assisted Liposuction  In this laser-assisted technique, fat melts using a concentrated laser beam light which starts to break down your fatty tissue with less inflammation, less bruising and less bleeding
  6. 6. Tumescent Liposuction  This technique involves subcutaneous infiltration of large volumes of crystalloid fluid called Klein’s solution, which contains low concentrations of lignocaine and epinephrine, followed by suctionassisted aspiration of fat by using small aspiration cannulae called microcannuale
  7. 7. Suction assisted liposuction  The traditional liposuction method in which the surgeon inserts a cannula (suction probe) through a small incision. The surgeon pushes and pulls the cannula through the fat layer to break up the fat tissue and a suction pump draws the fatty tissue out of the body..
  8. 8. Power Assisted Liposuction A procedure that is similar to suction-assisted liposuction, except that it is performed with a specialized cannula that uses mechanized movements to help break up the fat tissue
  9. 9. Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction  Ultrasonic liposuction is a technique of liposuction where the fatty tissue is removed with the help of Ultrasonic sound waves which are beyond the range of human hearing. This increases safety. The ultrasonic energy is targeted to fat cells and creates less damage to other tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and muscles.
  10. 10. Water-assisted liposuction  The Body-Jet device uses a gentle, pulsating spray of fluid to dislodge fat without the brute force used in traditional liposuction procedures. Fat is loosened from connective tissues and at the same time removed using just a gentle fluid spray.
