Liposuction on the Increase
on: November 6, 2009, 10:09 am
The Hospital Group has reported that the number of women
having liposuction has increased by 42% in the past 4 years
Liposuction has grown in leaps and bounds over the last few years and is often now
referred to as liposculpture. Liposculpture creates the same result as the more
commonly used term, liposuction or Lipo. Very similarly to liposuction excess fat
cells are removed, from almost any part of the body.
However, in contrast to liposuction, the procedure of liposculpture is a more time
consuming operation with a greater amount of personal skill required by the plastic
surgeon, and creates a smoother end result, changing the contours of your body or
face. This cosmetic surgery procedure is suitable for both men and women.
A spokesperson for The Hospital Group, said: “Liposuction is an incredibly popular procedure. With increasing coverage of
celebrity bodies, we are seeing more women turn to liposuction to help them create
the body they are looking for. Liposuction is a great option for tackling those
stubborn areas which can be resistant to diet and exercise."
The procedure involves insertion of a Cannula (small tube-like syringe) through a
small incision in the skin. The fat is then drawn through the tube leaving a much
smoother surface. The procedure is carried out under General Anaesthetic.
For those looking to undergo the procedure: the best candidates for liposculpture
are those with stubborn areas of fat which are resistant to diet or exercise. This
could include the tummy, buttocks, chin, arms, knees etc. A consultation with a
Surgeon will help you identify what sort of outcome you could expect and if it is
the right procedure for you. For example, liposuction can remove excess fat around
the abdomen, but not excess skin. In this case a tummy tuck might be recommended in order to achieve the desired result.
