What You Should Know About Liposuction
Liposuction is a surgical technique that is designed to remove stubborn fat cells from underneath the skin to sculpt the body to rid it of specific fat deposits. This technique can be used for both women and men.
If you are looking for a surgical way to shed weight, liposuction is not the answer. This procedure is designed to remove fat deposits on the outer layers of the body. More stubborn fat that has accumulated around your inner organs cannot be treated with liposuction and conventional weight-loss methods such as a balanced diet and regular exercise are still your best options to shed weight. If you want to rid your body of outer fat deposits, Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your answer in Gauteng.
The Ideal Candidate
Living a healthy lifestyle means that you are committed to maintain a balanced and healthy diet along with a regular exercise routine. Ideal candidates for liposuction are those who keep healthy and in shape but are looking for a way to be rid of fat deposits on specific areas of their bodies. Areas that can be targeted with conventional liposuction include the thighs, knees, buttocks, abdomen, upper arms, chin, and cheeks.
The Technique and Procedure
Liposuction directly targets fat cells beneath the skin by inserting a cannula into a small incision at the targeted area of the body. The surgeon will proceed to use the cannula to break down and vacuum fat deposits from the specific area, removing those cells form the body for good.
Vibro-liposuction is an advanced surgical technique that adds compressed air to the cannula. The compressed air allows the cannula to vibrate, which has benefits for both the surgeon and patient that lead to better results and more efficient fat-cell removal. The procedure will take less time to complete. It will also reduce the time that you are under anaesthesia as a result of the shorter procedure times. The vibrations will also stimulate collagen production in the treated areas, improving overall results and reducing overall recovery time.
