Treatment

Treatment

There are various liposuction techniques that the doctors can employ during the procedure.

  • Tumescent liposuction- In this technique, the doctor first pumps saline solution with some chemicals below the fatty area to be reduced.
  • Dry liposuction- The doctor simply suctions out the fat without injecting any fluids.
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction- After making the incisions, the cannula is energized with ultrasound that helps to break down the fat. This method makes it easier for the fat to suction out.
  • Power-assisted liposuction- With the help of a specialized cannula, the surgeon drains excess fat from the body.
  • Laser-Assisted Lipolysis- Through the cannula, a small tube is inserted through which laser energy is emitted. This heats the fat under the skin and removes fat easily.

Procedure

The procedure starts with the administration of anesthesia- local or general through an intravenous channel. Once the patient is sedated, the doctor makes small incisions that are almost unnoticeable. Through these incisions, the doctor inserts a cannula which is a hollow tube in a to and fro motion to loosen the fat. Once the fat loosens, with the help of a surgical vacuum or syringe, the fat is suctioned out of the body.

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Sharad Mishra-Say-About-Liposuction-Treatment

Dr. Sharad Mishra

MBBS, MS, MCH

20 Years Experience

"A number of patients come to me requesting to get liposuction to lose excess weight. And I understand the confusion. There are many misconceptions regarding liposuction and it is often confused with weight-loss treatments (bariatric surgery). In reality, liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment. Liposuction is the solution for stubborn fat that doesn’t go away with diet and exercise. It will improve the shape of your body, make you slimmer, and also improve the skin texture by removing the excess fat deposits in a minimally invasive manner. Regardless of the rumors and controversies that you often hear about liposuction, it is a safe procedure and has long-lasting benefits."

Pristyn Care offers Most Advanced Liposuction In Chennai

Pristyn Care is providing liposuction with the advanced technique. Liposuction is the only way to remove stubborn fat that does not shed even after trying vigorous diet regimes and exercise routines. Moreover, even after trying various fat loss methods, you can only cut off fat from the overall body rather than specific parts.

Under such circumstances, liposuction looks like a feasible option as it not only removes fat from the body but also tones and reshapes the area.

  • Upper arms
  • Cheeks, neck, and chin

  • Inner knees
  • Calves
  • Ankles
