Liposuction- A Safe & Scarless Body Fat Removal Technique
In recent years, liposuction has gained popularity among people in India. That’s why more and more people are getting inclined to opt for the procedure to lose stubborn body fat. However, you should understand that liposuction is not a weight-loss technique. Liposuction is suitable in cases where people can’t lose fat through diet or exercise. If you are sick of the stubborn fat that doesn’t go away, get in touch with Pristyn Care and choose liposuction surgery. We perform liposuction using advanced technology, i.e., laser and ultrasound-assisted technique (VASER) to remove the deposited fat through a minimally invasive procedure. Both laser and VASER liposuction provides the best results with precision without causing major scars on the body.

How to prepare for liposuction surgery or lipoplasty?
Lipoplasty is the other name of liposuction surgery. Lipoplasty does not require in depth preparation. But you need to do a thorough research, find the best doctor and determine the best line of treatment.
The first and the most important thing that you need to do if you are preparing for liposuction treatment is finding a board-certified surgeon who can help you undergo the treatment without any risk and complications.
The liposuction surgeon is likely to recommend certain tests before you proceed with the treatment. Get the medical evaluation and lab tests done. Stop smoking when your surgery is planned. Smoking can alter the results of liposuction to a great extent.
Take medications as prescribed by the doctor. Avoid taking aspirin, any herbal supplements, anti-inflammatory medicines that can increase your risk of suffering from bleeding.
