TYPES OF LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURES

Tumescent liposuction (fluid injection) is the most common type of liposuction procedure.

It involves injecting a large volume of medicated solution into the areas before the fat removal process is initiated.

Sometimes, the solution could also be up to 3 times the total amount of fat to be removed.

The fluid could be a mixture of local anesthetic solution (lidocaine), a drug that contracts the blood vessels (epinephrine), and an intravenous (IV) salt solution.

  • The local anesthetic solution, Lidocaine anesthetizes the local area throughout the procedure.
  • Epinephrine is the vasoconstrictor which helps in reducing the loss of blood, bruising, and swelling.
  • The IV solution helps extraction the fat easier. This solution is suctioned out along with the fat.

This is a comparatively longer procedure.

 
Super-wet technique is similar to tumescent liposuction with the difference in the quantity of solution injected. In the super-wet technique, the amount of solution injected is less and is generally the same as fat to be removed. This technique takes less time. But it needs general anesthesia or sedation


Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) is the one in which ultrasonic vibrations are used to convert adipose (fat) cells into the liquid, then this liquid is taken out via vacuum. This procedure helps in decreasing fat in areas that are dense and are fibrous such as enlarged male breasts. This is a lengthy procedure.


Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL) utilizes laser energy radiations to melt fat cells. After the cells are liquefied, its contents are vacuumed out or emptied through little tubes. These areas include the chin and face. The advantage of LAL over other liposuction techniques is that it stimulates collagen production which helps to prevent skin sag after liposuction.

 

Technique

  • The patient is anesthetized via either local anesthesia or general. After giving a low skin incision the fluid is injected within the areas to be operated upon. After the drugs within the solution make an impact, the melted fat is taken out through the suction tube.
  • A vacuum pump or an oversized syringe provides the suction action.
  • Several skin incisions are a must in the treatment of massive areas. The clinician tries to induce the simplest contour via approaching the areas from different directions.
  • After the fat is removed, small drainage tubes are inserted into the local areas to remove blood and fluid that collects during the first few days after the procedure
  • Fluid replacement (normal saline or glucose injected intravenously) is a must in-case patient who has lost a lot of fluid. In rare instances, blood transfusions are needed.
  • A garment known as compression will be placed on the patient.

 

After Procedure

It is an out-patient surgery, most patients are not needed to be hospitalized. After the surgery, pressures are applied with bandages and a compression garment to arrest hemorrhage, as well as to help maintain shape.

Bandages are kept on the operated area for 2 weeks. A patient will likely need the compression garment for many weeks.

A patient will probably have swelling, bruising, numbness, and pain, but it can be managed with medicines. The stitches, if given, are removed in five to ten days.

To prevent any kind of wound infection, antibiotics are given to the patient. The patient is advised to walk as soon as possible after surgery to prevent blood clots formation in legs.

Avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for about a month after the surgery.

 

Risks

Certain medical conditions should be checked and be under control before liposuction, including:

 

  • History of heart problems (heart attack)
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Allergic reactions to medicines
  • Lung problems (shortness of breath, air pockets in the bloodstream)
  • Allergies (antibiotics, asthma, surgical prep)
  • Smoking, alcohol, or drug use

 

Risks associated with liposuction include:

 

  • Shock (usually when not enough fluid is replaced during the surgery)
  • Fluid overload (usually from the procedure)
  • Infections (strep, staph)
  • Bleeding, blood clot
  • Tiny globules of fat in the bloodstream that block blood flow to tissue (fat embolism)
  • Nerve, skin, tissue, or organ damage or burns from the heat or instruments used in liposuction
  • Uneven fat removal (asymmetry)
  • Dents in your skin or contouring problems
  • Drug reactions or overdose from the lidocaine used in the procedure
  • Scarring or irregular, asymmetric, or even "baggy," skin, especially in older people
