Liposuction revised and explained

Liposuction in details.

Candidly speaking, liposuction is one of the simplest cosmetic surgery operations. Despite the fact that several informants state fatality rate of liposuction in the US equivalent to mortality in car road accidents, it is still possible to say: liposuction is the simplest.

If you investigate other plastic surgery operations, you will realize my stand. For example, lets learn breast enlargement, one of the most favourite and "public" plastic surgeries. You may have different kinds of problems taking breast augmentation: with implants, with scratches, with infection, even with good sense ( guess what I imply ). YetNevertheless, lines into cosmetic surgery clinics do not become smaller. Different instance is rhinoplasty or nose job, operation which is really demanding to skills and experience of a surgeon, although easy for patient. Rather, liposuction is just a few tubes (cannulas) and pump which absorbs fat from your body. The biggest problem may take place when you drop off overmuch blood, moving out too much fat. In this clause I will make detailed explanation of liposuction technology and its health implications.

Suction Lipectomy can be used for varied areas of your body: thighs, hips, the abdomen, the back, neck, buttocks, face. For Instance, if we think about face, you can make liposuction and skin tightening in the neck, jawbone area and chin area which heal in a couple of days and making so called " Week end rhytidoplasty ". Other example is breast reducing by liposuction, leaving you the ability of breast feeding as the milk canals are not damaged. In addition, the recovery time from liposuction is shorter than that from conventional breast reducing. However, places where liposuction is commonly applied is not the greatest differentiating component to talk about this kind of plastic surgeries.

This factor is technology. You may imagine tasks of this technology: to remove fatty tissue as effective as possible. The first suction lipectomy was did in 1979 by plastic surgeon to his couple. He applied scalpel and just cut off fat from body. Real elementary and direct approach, demanding long-term stays in the clinics with long-term recovery time and even transfusions. Patients in general were not capable to walk upright for up to six weeks, sustaining awful pain and scarring. For Certain, you may anticipate advances in liposuction at the least because phrase "suck" in liposuction is not equal to word "cut". And we can, at least, process fatty tissue with supersonic, laser, vibration, etc. Thus, lets imagine you are going to liposuction.

The classic liposuction demands tumescent infusion accompanied by fat extraction. Upon arrival into plastic surgery clinics, you may be presented something like Valium to relax (if worried ). Afterwards, when you lie, Demerol or some other pain reliever is injected and the fatty fields of the body are filled with a solution of sterile salt water, Adrenalin and anesthetic.

When the anesthetic agent takes effect, miniature incisions are produced in the skin with small needles where fat is to be removed. A cannula, or thin tube, is then inserted and pump sucks fat through cannulas into a disposable bucket.

After the fat is removed, you are covered in a clothing that remains on body for around 6 days. Foam pads are placed on the places where the cannula entered the skin and you are then placed in a clothe which fastens skin and carries the foam pads. You may feel constricting the clothe on the day after surgical procedure.

The ugliest happens at the second day of suction lipectomy, when your feel sore and bound up. However after the second day, the liposuction experience continues of going better and better. When the pads are withdrawn you will have an chance to see a glance of different body and may love what you discover. Of course, dropping down a size or 2 can realise anyone feeling better and more bullish. Yet, do not be too assured about liposuction; liposuction is not to decrease weight, it is just to tune fields, which are unreactive to diet or exercises. Plus liposuction doesn't wipe out fat for good. If you continue following former eating habits and life style, the fat will come back soon. Although it may come back into slightly different areas, since old areas may have micro injuries, therefore do not store fat.

The rest of liposuction post-operational period is just step-by-step recovery. Drain from the addressed places normally stops in six days after surgical procedure, possible slight bruising will heal in nearly two weeks, and puffiness and swelling will go away in few months.

Some Other more aggressive liposuction technology applies supersonic which emulsifies fat before extraction. Ultrasonic lipo causes skin tightening, which does not happen with conventional liposuction. Its proved to be more effective, peculiarly for areas, where conventional liposuction did not performed good.

Laser liposuction causes the blood vessels to coagulate at once, so people are left with less hurting, less swelling, and less pain. This operation of to breaking up fat cells, is known as lipolysis, leaving in less harm also tightening the skin.

Improvement of laser lipo is SmartLipo Laser Body Sculpting system, which however, can be employed only to tiny areas, and named lunchtime liposuction, because of very small recovery period. Productiveness of SmartLipo, however is also small, presenting vantages only in precise laser application, due to minimal serving areas, for example under the arms (batwings), etc.

Oscillation also causes liposculpture more efficient, because effect of vibration makes fat to remove faster and smother. Among vibration supported liposuction techniques Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture is a world-beater. This technique compounds advantages of all above noted and brings own: it tightens the skin, pain-free (working frequence is an extra anesthetic), do not carry risk of perforation and has quick recovery period. Since this is very new technique, you may not hear about it in many plastic surgery clinics and you may be guaranteed that laser, ultrasonic or power assisted lipo techniques are the greatest. Take these ridiculous phrases as indicant of level of qualification in that clinics; although to be modest, equipment is somewhat expensive.

Among alternatives to lipo I would list spa treatments such as seaweed wraps and cellulite massages, which promise to help crack up fat cells and move out them from your body. Nevertheless most of these techniques are not proved to work, and if they do show some power to make your body appear better, it is short-lived.

I do not wish talk over here lipo dangers, disdain the fact the title of this clause is lipo in particulars. Risks do not add up for me if you understand technologies and can make focused conclusion about clinics, doctor and technique. Right decision diminishes risks, bad one causes the opposite. Costs may too play important role, but can be reduced, if you make cosmetic surgery in some low cost state like Estonia or Latvia. For Instance, Villa Medica, is the only clinics in Baltics, which proposes oscillation based Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture.

Bad eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery,   or blepharoplasty is plastic  surgery operation on  eyelid. Excess tissue such as skin and fat are removed or repositioned, and surrounding muscles and tendons may be reinforced.

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty
Bblepharoplasty was listed as the third most popular surgical procedure among men and women by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Over 300,000 operations were performed in the United States alone.

Eyelid correction is not the most complicated cosmetic surgery operation, however it could leave you this asymmetrical and odd-looking face. I would distinguish the following problems with eyelid corrections:

Hollows under eyes
Since surgeon removes skin, fat and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids, it can can create a hollow or sunken area around the eye, leaving a sad, tired, dark or skeletonized appearance. This fullness is restored with a “filler” such as Restylane or the patient’s own fat levels.

Eyelids are pulling down
Scar contraction may happen after incision, pulling the lower eyelid down and sclera (white part of eye) being more visible. In addition to changes in appearance, this can create irritation from eye exposure, redness, increased risk of infection, and dry eye syndrome.  

Eyelids  do not close completely
If  too much skin and/or muscle  removed from the upper eyelids, incomplete eyelid closure, or lagopthalmos may happen. Some people have no idea that this takes place, however, they have typical symptoms of dry eye syndrome: redness, reflexive tearing, burning, dependence on artificial tears (especially in the morning), and a sensation of sand in the eye. Insertion of a gold eyelid weight in the upper eyelid will sometimes be enough to help the eyelid to close sufficiently.

Eyelid surgery (also as a part of facelift) can completely change your face, like with Kenny Rogers.

Of course is possible to avoid there and other problems in plastic surgery, and I do not want to state common sense advices: certified surgeon, reputable clinics, etc. However, you should trust you doctor and state your goals explicitly. Do not expect perfection from operation, but do not take risk of it if you afraid, things will not be done well. And good luck !
