Points TO KEEP IN MIND Before Having Liposuction Surgery
What is spot liposuction?
A: That term identifies having liposuction on one little area the individual doesn’t like. It is just a very small focus that requires only a little anesthetic. It can also be done after people have had liposuction and discover one tiny area of fat remaining they want removed.
Q: What forms of sedation are employed for liposuction?
A: Shots could be given in the muscle to provide narcotics and anti-anxiety medication. They may be given by mouth or injected intravenously – the choice is up to the physician and the anesthesiologist
Q: Are there a variety of sizes of cannulas?
A: Initially, cannulas were 10 millimeters, which is 1 centimeter, more than a third of an inch in diameter.
Today, surgeons are using a cannula that’s much smaller, about a sixteenth of an inch. A 10 millimeter cannula is about the size of a pretzel rod. Small ones in use today are about the size of the smaller pretzel sticks. How big is the insertion hole relates to how big is the cannula found in that area.
The openings of the cannulas may also be different. There are more aggressive cannulas to focus on deeper planes when surgeons need 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 on 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 enables an exit for the fluid, permitting it to drain out. However, many doctors prefer to sew the incisions closed with sutures.
Q: Are there scars when suturing isn’t used?
A: There are scars whether stitches are employed or not, but they can frequently be treated in the future should 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 no injected fluids, had negative effects and is not any 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.
skymedicalsupplies combines lidocaine to numb and epinephrine (adrenaline) to constrict arteries and minimize bleeding.
Ultrasonic liposuction heats and liquefies fat. The inner form requires special surgical skills; the external form can be used to liquefy fat prior to treatment with tumescent liposuction.
Surgeons can remove fat with syringes or with machine-powered cannulas.
Powered liposuction uses a high-powered cannula that moves backwards and forwards to create fat removal faster and easier.
High-volume liposuction, with removal of more than four or five 5 liters of fat at one session, isn’t recommended.
Different forms of sedation are available, administered by mouth or by injection.
Cannulas can be found in different sizes and leave different size insertion openings.
Some surgeons allow insertions sites to drain, while others sew them up with sutures.
