People from different backgrounds have constantly been searching for near perfect body shape, asymmetrical arms and legs, distended abdomens due to fat deposits are the frequent sources of embarrassment and insecurity in people. Most people will say that proper dieting and an exercise regimen can give you the body you’ve always wanted, but not all areas of the body can be effectively rid of fat deposits through exercise and dieting, areas like the neck, hips, upper arms and calves are difficult if not entirely impossible to tone.
Liposuction or Lipoplasty is a surgical procedure that an Italian-American Dr. Giorgio Fischer, a gynecologist, invented in 1974. In 1978 a Frenchman, Dr. Illouz, a plastic surgeon, used it in a solely cosmetic application. The surgical treatment, removes unwanted fat deposits from the body through the used of stainless steel tubes called cannulas.
Liposuction has been accepted worldwide, In the USA, States like, GA, RI, MI, NH, and Liposuction CT (Connecticut) was introduced in the early 1980’s, and liposuction became widely accepted.
People who want to avail of liposuction CT State must have realistic expectations from the cosmetic surgeon and the surgical procedure itself. Proper research and discussions with several surgeons and even people who have done the treatment can help with this concern. Also, the person must be in good shape and within his or her normal weight ratio, good skin elasticity is also important since skin with poor elasticity will hang loose and will not conform with the treated area of the body. Smoking and consumption of alcoholic drinks is prohibited weeks before the operation.
The surgical procedure is very straightforward with traditional liposuction. A patient will be under anesthesia and the cosmetic surgeon will then make incisions where the stainless tube called cannulas will be inserted, these cannulas will then be moved back and forth by the surgeon while it is inside between the skin and fatty tissue, this back and forth movement of the cannulas actually separate the fat from the tissue and skin, the separated fat is then suctioned of by the cannula through a vacuum machine and into a repository. A typical liposuction surgical procedure takes between 1 to 3 hours depending on the size of the area to be treated. Recovery from the anesthetics will be from 2 – 4 hours and recovery from the procedure itself will be 1 to 2 weeks. Expect some swelling and bruising but this will soon disappear. An elastic garment, also known as a compression garment is utilized to aid in the shaping of the newly treated area of the body and it also quickens the healing.
