Everything About Liposuction

Liposuction is the most ordinary cosmetic surgeries performed in the world today and it works best for people who wish to get rid of fat deposits and hideous bulges from different areas of the body to enhance body shape and contour.
Liposuction was introduced in the mid 1970s and modern techniques have made it less complicated and safer for both surgeons and patients.
Fat cells play several roles in metabolism.
They serve as a storage station, energy source and they interact with insulin and take part in hormone synthesis.
Adult fat cells are known to be not capable of multiplying.
There is a certain number distributed in a genetically predetermined fashion throughout the body when you are born.
As one age and gain weight, these cells expand.
And when one loses weight, the cells become smaller but the number and distribution remain unchanged.
In very rare cases of severe obesity, new fat cells may be produced.
Is liposuction for you? Classic candidates of liposuction are people at or near their ideal body weight who wish to enhance specific contours of their body that they have not been able to with their traditional diet or exercises.
We commonly see people around us who stick closely to their exercising regime and are relatively in good shape but cannot get rid of their 'love handles'.
These areas are called exercise and diet resistant fat and this is hereditary.
You may have observed the pear shaped bodies or heavy thighs in several members of a family.
These are the genetic fat deposits which responds well to liposuction.
How is liposuction beneficial? Liposuction can slim the thighs, hips and abdomen, and can eliminate excess fats from the chin, arms and breasts.
It can also result in a more shapely contour to the inner knees, calves and ankles.
These treated areas will retain their new contour as you do not have any extreme weight gain.
The result of liposuction is lasting, as long you watch your diet to keep your weight stable.
There are certain areas of the body such as the arms, abdomen and inner thighs may result a loose or hanging skin after liposuction.
The flanks and outer thighs however respond well after the surgery and it is not common to develop loose skin in these areas.
On how the skin retract and tighten after liposuction depends on your age and the quantity of fat removed, where the fat was removed and your skin tone and elasticity.
If there is a good chance that you will have loose skin after liposuction in a certain area, skin tightening procedures such as thigh lift, tummy tuck or arm lift instead of liposuction is recommended.
