Liposuction: The art of body sculpting

Most people are confused with liposuction as a weight loss surgery, but
Liposuction is a procedure to remove fat from the body using suction. For this, tiny cuts are made in the skin and fat is suctioned out using tiny tubes.

Dr. R. Jayakumar is a pioneer in the area of Cosmetic Surgery and Plastic Surgery. He is assisted by a highly skilled and dedicated team of doctors. 

  • Can return to normal activities immediately after the surgery 
  • Effectively remove fat in small areas 
  • Improved changes in body contour 
  • Local anesthesia is used 
  • It is an outpatient procedure 

Tumescent Liposuction: The liposuction is done with a large amount of dilute lidocaine is injected into the fatty tissue to make them tumescent.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction: Here ultrasound is used to liquefy the fat. It is mostly used to remove fat from the neck, upper abdomen, sides, and back. 

Laser-assisted Liposuction: Low-energy waves are used to liquefy fats.

After the procedure

The area that was treated is wrapped firmly to help reduce swelling, bruising and pain. Compression garments have to wear for three to four weeks. Oral intake of antibiotics will be suggested. The patient can return to normal activities after a few days.

Liposuction is most suitable for the area that has not responded well to diet and exercise.
Liposuction is sometimes used in combination with other cosmetic surgery procedures
Liposuction is used to treat certain medical conditions like: 

  • Benign fatty tumors(lipomas) 
  • Abnormal enlargement of male breasts(gynecomastia) 
  • Problems with metabolism of fat in the body 
  • Excessive sweating in the armpit area 

In this modern era, the demand for cosmetic treatment is one rise resulting in the mushrooming of cosmetic clinics. The success of cosmetic surgery lies in the selection of the apt center. Dr. Jayakumar had done many surgeries in the field and his quest for knowledge and research will definitely help the patients.
