Liposuction was actively used at the end of the last century. She quickly became a kind of indulgence against any crimes related to weight gain. Now you can safely skip classes in the gym and eat everything. Well, what, that a couple kilograms was added, and became a tight dress? After all, you can fix it with liposuction.

However, do not treat the operation as a routine brushing or cosmetic procedure. After all, this is a surgical intervention, which is always a stress for the body. Yes, and forgotten somehow for a quick disposal of excess kilograms of a long rehabilitation period with possible complications.

Many of those who are prepared for liposuction have no idea what the doctor will do. Although the operation of pumping fat has become quite popular today, there are still many myths around it.

Liposuction allows you to get rid of obesity.

If an honest surgeon gets caught, he will explain that liposuction allows you to correct the local shortcomings of the figure. The operation is applied in the event that the diet or exercise does not help. After all, with its help, some reserve fat is removed. These special cells easily tolerate a lack of nutrition, and in the presence of glucose rapidly multiply. The operation will be effective in those people whose weight is close to normal or slightly higher than it. But for patients with general obesity, liposuction is not an option. Thin hips, especially their inner part, buttocks, lower abdomen and the “riding breeches” zone are particularly active in resisting overall weight loss. Liposuction will help to correct them, giving problematic places an ideal shape. However, one should not expect that the common problem of obesity will be solved at the same time. So it is necessary to prepare for such an operation already in the event that weight loss has taken place, and it remains only to get rid of the most stubborn fatty deposits.

Liposuction helps to get rid of cellulite.

In this case, we should speak immediately about two mutually exclusive statements. Some say that liposuction can remove cellulite, while others, on the contrary – the operation leads to the appearance of an “orange peel”. Practice shows that fat suction generally has nothing to do with this problem. After all, liposuction deals with the removal of fat, which is located in the thickness of the subcutaneous tissue. And cellulite appears because of the fat lobules that are directly under the skin. That is why liposuction can not improve the skin condition in cellulite, but it can not worsen the situation.

Ultrasonic liposuction is less traumatic than other techniques.

There are quite a few varieties of liposuction, but they all have the same task – to help the doctor, and not to alleviate the patient’s suffering. After all, to remove subcutaneous fat, the surgeon resorts to certain efforts. Fat is not some kind of unnecessary foreign liquid that can be poured from a person anywhere. This is part of the body, where each cell firmly holds on to the neighboring cells. So puncturing the skin does not mean that the unnecessary fabric itself will pour out from there. That is why the doctors before the operation tend to destroy the intercellular tissues. Usually for this purpose the zone is treated with a special compound, Klein’s solution. It helps in half an hour to thin the fat, which will help to remove it more easily. But surgeons believe that such a method is still laborious, so there are more and more new types of liposuction.

Ultrasonic liposuction provides for the puncture of the operating zones with a solution, after which they are exposed to ultrasonic waves.

It should be noted that this method is perhaps more traumatic than others. After all, the devices of the first generations gave a large heat flow, which led to the appearance of an internal burn. This only delayed postoperative healing. But now doctors have learned to avoid such an effect.

The technique of liposuction does not exist.

In addition to the already named ultrasound technique, a few more basic ones are distinguished.Thus, syringe liposuction is performed manually. Fat is pumped not with vacuum pumps, but with syringes. Vibration is performed with the help of the apparatus “Lipomatik”, which makes it easier to move the cannula in the tissues. Tumescent liposuction makes it possible to perform an operation under local anesthesia. For this, a special solution with an anesthetic is injected into the operating areas. Lipoelectromodeling uses a special apparatus that generates a special current of a given frequency. It also destroys fat cells.

Liposuction is a safe procedure.

Do not assume that no one has died from such an operation. Although liposuction externally seems to be something simple, it has many nuances that can lead to the most disastrous results. There is always a risk of unpleasant complications. Patients die at the operating tables, and liposuction is no exception here. Naturally, such cases occur when pumping out adipose tissue much less often than even with appendicitis. However, the statistics implicitly testifies that five thousand operations have one fatal outcome. The statistics seem to be not frightening, however, in absolute terms, everything is not so rosy. Every year in just a safe America from the attempts to get rid of excess fat by surgery, 75 people die. In Russia, such statistics are not even conducted.

Liposuction is harmless to health.

It must be understood once and for all that plastic surgery does not always proceed as the doctor and the patient would like. There can be many reasons for this. This is increased bleeding tissues, and poor elasticity of the skin, scar tissue changes at the site of surgery and much more. All this can affect the final result of the operation. But in the general case complications after liposuction are quite rare. Only 2.5% of patients have an increased pain sensitivity at the site of surgery, 1% skin pigmentation changes, and 1% have chronic pain syndrome. Every 200th gets some septic phenomena, for example, infection of blood. In case of an unfavorable confluence of circumstances and the poor performance of the doctor, the necrosis of the fiber and skin can be obtained, and operations on the lower limbs are fraught with a violation of the outflow of fluid. If it is wrong to choose the diameter of the cannula, it will lead to an uneven contour of the body, the syndrome of the “washing board” will appear. If the operation affects large areas, it is fraught with anemia, because blood loss will be great. But all this refers more to medical errors than to the shortcomings of the operation itself. Proper work of a surgeon usually avoids these problems, but in any case, significant blood loss will be, which for the body does not pass without a trace. Another point that also does not add health is anesthesia. For the liver, it is more dangerous than a week’s binge, and the nerve cells are also endangered.

Liposuction can be done at any age and regardless of health status.

Theoretically, there are no obstacles, but practice often disagrees with this. If you start to remove dead deposits, then there will be an excess of skin. It should decrease with time. That is, successful rehabilitation provides elasticity of the skin. But only with time it worsens, unable to react to such a large and rapid weight loss. Therefore, carrying out liposuction is no longer young women, which also recently also lost weight, can lead to sagging of the skin, which could not recover. In general, such an operation is contraindicated for people with circulatory disorders, with diabetes, as well as those who recently underwent surgery for parts of the body where it is planned to pump out fat.

After the operation, the fat will start to grow at a double speed in other places.

Human fat cells can multiply only until puberty. As a result, in an adult, their number remains unchanged until the very end of life.Therefore, to restore the removed cells nothing can not, but the remaining in the body will begin to accumulate in themselves more and more fat. So it turns out that after liposuction you can gain more fat in the operated sites, and in the neighboring ones. So for those who are predisposed to fullness, you should not relax. We must give up food for the night, as well as sweets and other harmful products.

You can remove as much fat as you want.

In fact, there is a record, for which you should not chase after all – 9 liters. The operation is often called liposculpture, so you should think carefully about the normal amount of fat removed. On the average, it is considered safe and normal to pump out up to 3 liters of fat at a time.

There are areas that are best left untouched.

And this is the truth. Liposuction is best avoided on the forearms and lower leg. It is believed that such an operation will not be effective in the areas of climacteric hump, shoulder area, upper back. But this is debatable, as well as generally talking about this technique. It is best to consult the doctor in choosing the method of pumping out fat, the tools for this, the places and the volume. Trust should be experienced and a doctor with a good reputation, and not rush to beautiful signs.

Liposuction is the usual pumping out of fat.

In fact, you have to think about how the body will react to the removal of a significant mass. And the appearance of the place of operation should remain beautiful. Therefore, liposuction should not be considered an ordinary pumping out fat, rather, it is liposculpture.

Fat is a very convenient material for modeling.

In fact, fatty tissue, like any other, a fairly complex system of lympho- and hemocirculation. To violate its integrity can only be fully confident in the need for such intervention.

Puncture spots on the skin and their location can be arbitrary.

This is incorrect, the number of punctures for each zone, and their location are pre-determined.

The amount of fat removed can be arbitrary.

Actually, in this regard, we must also take into account the laws of symmetry. The amount of fat removed must be predicted in advance and be the same in symmetrical zones. Otherwise, the location of the operation will become wavy.

Liposculpture can be superficial and deep.

In operation, the tunnels are uniformly distributed in all layers of the subcutaneous tissue. Sometimes the truth allows a more superficial arrangement of tunnels, which is associated with an increased effect of tightening the skin.

The result of liposuction is clear already in the first days after the operation.

Any operation of this kind entails a rehabilitation period of 2-3 months. If the work was done with the anterior abdominal wall, then we can speak about 4 months. In the first couple of weeks, only posttraumatic edema is present on the operation site. It dissolves only in the next month and a half, which is accompanied by the formation of an infiltrate. That in turn disappears in 3-4 months.

To achieve the final result, it is necessary to go through the postoperative procedures.

Liposuction does not require any special accompanying procedures – massage, lymph drainage, ultrasound exposure. The initial result, like the final result, is entirely based on the quality of the operation. And these procedures are offered by the clinics themselves and salons to earn on a trusting client.

It is impossible to predict the results of liposuction.

In fact, you can predict a favorable outcome. The patient should only observe all the indications for the operation, and the doctors assess the necessary and sufficient intervention, and also own different ways of carrying out such a procedure.

After the operation, you can go home right away.

According to this myth, after pumping fat, the person does not bother. Only small swelling will remain, which will quickly pass. And in a month the person will return to a full life.First of all, it should be noted that after the operation, at least for a day will have to stay in the hospital. After all, the surgeon must watch his patient. In this case, with a high probability of rising temperature, there will be a feeling of discomfort. Edema and bruises are an inevitable payment for pleasure. They will last about three weeks. It is also necessary to say that for a whole month after liposuction a person will have to wear compression underwear. It will help the skin cut better. And only in three months it will be possible to really evaluate the result.

After liposuction, you can forget about diet, sports and expensive cosmetics.

To consolidate and even improve the result obtained, the use of a special diet, massage and exercise is only welcome. It must be remembered that the operation is not a way to reduce weight, destroy cellulite or stretch marks. Of course, removing fat will lead to weight loss. But if you leave the diet the same, then fat will return. And to understand what kind of technology is suitable, the expert conducts a preliminary examination. If the fat deposits are small, the result will give all methods of liposuction. Here the skill of the surgeon is already important.

Liposuction is performed solely as an independent operation.

In fact, this procedure for correcting a figure is often carried out in a complex. Liposuction can be part of the correction of age-related changes in the body, plastics of the front part of the abdomen or recovery from injuries.

Liposuction saves from psychological problems.

In conditions of psychological pressure, many people are looking for a solution to this problem in liposuction. This is especially critical for patients with excess weight. Sometimes the operation really helps the psyche. Patients increase self-esteem, they have positive emotions about their improved appearance, complexes disappear. However, this is only true if the condition was mild or moderate. If the patient had a deep depression or if serious problems appeared in the perception of food (bulimia, anorexia), then surgery would not help either. In this case, you need to contact a psychologist or even a psychiatrist directly. So do not assume that liposuction is a way to solve nervous disorders and serious psychological problems.

After liposuction there are typical traces – postoperative scars and scars.

Usually puncture sites are tried to do in natural folds or in places concealed by laundry. Their diameter usually does not exceed 8 millimeters. In a couple of months, the traces of surgical intervention will be difficult to find even with due regard for these places. There are no scars or scars after liposuction.
