The Dangers Of Liposuction

By: Rob Lamper

Another very popular cosmetic treatment to remove excess fat is liposuction; the use of this treatment is not designed to curb excess weight. Whilst at first this seems like an ideal fat removal method, the downside is that it often returns; unfortunately this usually occurs in a different area - one that was possibly fat free before!

Tumescent and Ultrasonic are the two most commonly used methods although there are other lesser known techniques. The latest of these methods; Tumescent, has in a short space of time become one of the most popular forms of cosmetic enhancement in the USA today.

The tube used is much smaller and this also helps lessen the bruising which normally means a longer recovery period. The Tumescent liposuction technique is so effective at minimizing blood loss that the majority of patients lose less blood during the surgery than they do at their routine pre-operative laboratory tests.

Some of the most awkward areas to remove fat from are the thighs, hips, back and upper stomach region but Ultrasonic liposuction makes this possible.

The conventional method is often more difficult to perform over other cosmetic treatments because the surgeon cannot see where the probe is, and as a consequence internal injury can be the result. As always the best course of action for a prospective patient is to speak to the surgeon who is going the carry out the procedure and learn what method is best suited for them.

Although liposuction is relatively safe if carried out by a professional cosmetic surgeon, there can be risks and very, very rarely death about 2 in 10,000. To help reduce this risk, physical examinations are necessary for all subjects to make sure that every individual is healthy enough for the procedure to go ahead. Keeping the wounds clean and free from infection after the procedure is imperative so plastic surgeons prescribe antibiotics to all patients during the healing process. Fortunately though, in the past few years much progress has been made in the field of cosmetic surgery in respect to this procedure.

A new procedure akin to liposuction is Lipo dissolve, which eliminates unwanted fat with a series of micro-injections into problem areas such as the neck, stomach and thighs. Of course the greatest benefit to patients undergoing this process is the fact that no form of anesthetic is required and it does not interfere with other cosmetic skin treatments where surgery is not required.
