Points To Remember Before Having Liposuction Surgery

What is spot liposuction?

A: That term identifies having liposuction using one little area the person doesn’t like. It is just a very small focus that will require only a little anesthetic. simplyrenting is also done after folks have had liposuction and discover one tiny area of fat remaining that they want removed.

Q: What forms of sedation are employed for liposuction?

A: Shots could be given in the muscle to deliver narcotics and anti-anxiety medication. They might be given by mouth or injected intravenously – the choice is up to health related conditions and the anesthesiologist

Q: Are there a variety of sizes of cannulas?

A: In the beginning, cannulas were 10 millimeters, which is 1 centimeter, more than a third of an inch in diameter.

Today, surgeons are employing a cannula that’s much smaller, about a sixteenth of an inch. A 10 millimeter cannula is about the size of a pretzel rod. The smaller ones in use today are concerning the size of small pretzel sticks. How big is the insertion hole relates to the size of the cannula found in that area.

The openings of the cannulas may also be different. There are more aggressive cannulas to work on deeper planes when surgeons want to get more fat out. And there are less aggressive cannulas for focusing on superficial planes, where they don’t really want to create indentations. The size used also depends upon the pattern, size, and number of the openings in the patient’s skin.

Q: Are sutures required after liposuction?

A: True tumescent liposuction is purposely done without suturing the insertion sites. This allows an exit for the fluid, permitting it to drain out. But some doctors prefer to sew the incisions closed with sutures.

Q: Are there scars when suturing isn’t used?

A: You can find scars whether stitches are used or not, but they can often be treated in the future if they bother the patients. Oftentimes, they are hidden, so no-one sees them in the first place.

Points To Remember

The dry technique, with general anesthetic and no injected fluids, had negative effects and is no longer performed.
The wet technique uses injected fluids and is quite safe.
Tumescent liposuction uses injected fluids that cause tissues to swell and allow patients to remain awake during the procedure.
Tumescent anesthetic combines lidocaine to numb and epinephrine (adrenaline) to constrict arteries and minimize bleeding.
Ultrasonic liposuction heats and liquefies fat. The internal form requires special surgical skills; the external form can be used to liquefy fat ahead of treatment with tumescent liposuction.
Surgeons can remove fat with syringes or with machine-powered cannulas.
Powered liposuction runs on the high-powered cannula that moves back and forth to create fat removal faster and easier.
High-volume liposuction, with removal greater than four or five 5 liters of fat at one session, is not recommended.
Different forms of sedation can be found, administered orally or by injection.
Cannulas come in different sizes and leave different size insertion openings.
Some surgeons allow insertions sites to drain, while some sew them up with sutures.
