Is Liposuction The Right Way To Lose Weight?
How many times have you heard people refer to liposuction and express their wish saying, “I want to get this extra fat sucked out of me.”? A well contoured and proportionate body is what all of us want desire. But if someone is slightly on the heavier side, it becomes a thing to worry. As a result, many of us rush into choosing instant solutions for weight loss.
The obesity epidemic has led many of us to find ways to lose weight quickly and easily. We go on crash diets, GM diets, and what not! And these days with the advanced medical system, we have more options like liposuction surgery too.
While liposuction is undoubtedly an attractive choice for getting rid of stubborn fat; it is a misconception that liposuction can be used as a quick fix for weight loss. However, a liposuction surgery is not going to provide any miraculous results that patients wait for.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is the procedure of safely sucking out the fat under the skin (subcutaneous fat) without much harm to the other vital organs structures. It involves injecting medicated fluid into the body, followed by insertion of cannulas and safely removing the fat without damaging the blood vessels and other organs. The surgery can be done in one or two areas of the body safely at a time; for example, the abdomen and buttocks, chest and abdomen, etc. Not more than 10-15% of the fat should be removed at once. So the maximum fat that can be eliminated from a person weighing 90 kgs would be around 9 litres. Although with experienced hands and a much organised set up, higher quantities of fat can also be removed.
What can liposuction do?
- Remove stubborn fat deposits from the body.
- Liposuction can provide body contouring for a slimmer, more aesthetically pleasing structure.
- A complete change in your physical appearance.
Who needs a liposuction?
- People who are unable to burn out stubborn fat accumulated in some regions of the body.
- Excessively obese people who need medical assistance even after workouts and strict diets.
Who is a right candidate for liposuction?
- There is no specific age for liposuction. However, it is usually preferred to be an adult to get a liposuction done.
- A good candidate should not be overweight, and should not smoke.
- The patient must also have firm skin so that the skin does not sag after the surgery.
A common thought that strikes us is how to maintain after the surgery.This is the most talked about topic, and debatable at times. So here’s something that you must keep in mind while getting a liposuction done.
A liposuction cannot treat obesity, and doesn’t prevent you from gaining weight. Patients must understand that post recovery maintenance is required in order to avoid fat gain in future. A liposuction surgery may result in a better-looking figure. But certainly, it cannot alter lifestyle, activity levels, and food habits. So if you are looking for a permanent weight loss solution, you might need to workout regularly post your liposuction surgery.

They provide you with a complete analysis of your body type, a diet plan and exercises that need to be followed regularly. Remember, an active routine and lifestyle plays a crucial role in post surgery recovery and maintenance. Having or not having a liposuction done purely depends on the level of requirement, and the body type. Our cosmetic and plastic surgeons will assess your body before recommending any treatment, and assure you of best results.
