Dr. Ayman Shahine, MD – Scope of Liposuction Treatment
Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction lipectomy or lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery which breaks up and “sucks” fat from various possible parts of the body, most commonly the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves and back
How does the body deal with fat? What is fat transfer?
In order to better understand the dynamics of liposuction with all its types from smart lipo, laser lipo, tickle lipo, lipo transfer and other types of liposuction, fat transfer and fat grafting, Brazilian butt lift, butt augmentation, or buttocks enlargement it is very important to first understand the anatomy and physiology of fat and fat cells in the body.
How does a person take care of himself after a liposuction procedure?
post liposuction we recommend that for the next 2 days a person eats fat rich food.fat rich food post liposuction especially if it was performed under local tumescent anesthesia helps the body dissipate and eliminate the anesthetic medications that cause nausea and vomiting and feeling of malaise and illness after the procedure. Also, every patient must wear the foam sheet under the post-surgical compression garments and keep both on for at least 5 days continuously, 24×7. this will exert positive pressure on the skin which helps it to contract and to stick to the under layers and thus prevent the accumulation of inflammatory body fluids under the skin and prevent swelling, edema, protracted healing and swelling.

Scope of Liposuction Treatment
Major determining factors in the cost of a liposuction treatment include the number of areas being treated and the amount of fat being removed. Liposuction is often combined with other procedures, which can also make a tremendous difference in cost. In the case of a tummy tuck, liposuction is usually a given, and liposuction is factored into the estimate your surgeon provides. Does the patient wish to transfer liposuctioned fat to other areas, such as the breast, face, or biceps? In general, one could say that a breast augmentation using transferred fat costs about as much as augmentation using implants.
Liposuction or just lipo, is a type of plastic surgery that gets rid of fat from the human body in an attempt to change its shape. Evidence does not sustain a result on weight beyond a number of months and also it does not show up to impact weight problems associated issues.
Bruising: can be painful in the short term, and should fade after a few weeks.
Swelling: should subside gradually over a month or two.
Scars: will certainly differ in size depending on the treatment, and also need to fade over the weeks. Marking is a specific thing, partly dependent on heredity. For some, scar recovery might take as long as a year.
Pain: should be temporary and controlled by either over-the-counter medication or by a prescription.
Numbness: sometimes persists for a few weeks.
Post-operative weight gain
Limited mobility: will depend on the exact procedure.
There could be various factors limiting movement for a short while, such as:
Wearing a compression garment
Keeping the head elevated
Temporary swelling or pain
The basic surgical challenge of any liposuction procedure is:
To extract the right amount of fat
To cause the least disturbance of neighboring tissue, such as blood vessels and connective tissue
To leave the person’s fluid balance undisturbed
To cause the least discomfort to the patient
