2 Simple, Safe and More Effective Alternatives to Liposuction
For a Healthier Weight Loss & a Healthier YOU!
There are Safer & More Effective Ways to Improve your Body than with Liposuction, Laser Lipolysis. It is important to have a clear picture as to – What is Liposuction? What is also probably most important to know is it effective and is it SAFE?
Evidence has shown that Liposuction, does not have a positive effect on weight loss beyond a couple of months. It doesn’t have any significant effect on obese related problems and is Not recommended. Taking a look at the safety aspects and what are safer alternatives that will provide you with a healthier and more successful outcome.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction removes fat from your body using suction. During liposuction, small, thin, blunt-tipped tubes (cannula) are inserted through tiny cuts in the skin. Fat is suctioned out through these tubes as the doctor moves the tubes around under the skin to target specific fat deposits, removing these fat deposits and fat cells. If the person doesn’t make significant dietary and lifestyle changes continuing to eat a high fat diet, then the fat will deposit into other areas of the body, that will lead to serious health problems.
Safety Aspects and Complications
With any surgery there will always be risks involved and I would always choose a less invasive and no risk option. A majority of Health Professionals would agree that when it comes surgery the word safe isn’t part of the vocabulary.
Although death is very rare with liposuction, it can happen. If you are having a large amount of fat removed, are obese, or have health problems, your risks go up. Possible complications include:
- Excessive blood and fluid loss, leading to shock. But this is extremely unlikely.
- Fat clots or blood clots, which may travel to the lungs (pulmonary embolism) and become life-threatening.
- Buildup of fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema). This is most likely to occur when a large volume of fluid is injected into the body.
- Infection. In some cases, antibiotics may be given before or after liposuction to help prevent infection.
- Toxic reaction to the injected solution (lidocaine toxicity), especially if large areas or many areas are treated at one time.
- A puncture into the cavity containing the abdominal organs or damage to an organ such as the spleen.
Liposuction should not be done in people who have severe heart problems, who have blood-clotting disorders (such as thrombophilia, a disorder in which the blood clots easily or excessively), or during pregnancy.
If you gain weight after having liposuction, your body may store the new fat in a different place than where you had fat cells removed. New fat can grow deep inside your body, around your organs, such as your heart or liver. This type of fat can be more harmful to your body than fat that is stored near the surface of your body, such as on your hips or thighs. So people who have liposuction need to be careful not to gain extra weight.
How Effective is Liposuction and Does it Work?
Well I guess that depends on what your expectations are – is it going to make you taught, slim and terrific with the body of a model then the answer would be NO!
What liposuction will do – As mentioned Liposuction is a surgical process which involves making a hole to reach under the skin where the fat forms an irregular layer.
Through the hole a hollow tube is inserted and passed around under the skin. The tube is attached to suction (like a vacuum cleaner) so as to suck up the fat under the skin which is collected in a container and discarded.
The hole is then closed with stitches and a firm bandage is applied over the area to prevent bleeding into the space where the fat was removed from.
There will be extensive bruising after the procedure, but this should disappear after some time. It will also be painful for some time.
Obviously fat cells are microscopic and not all the fat will be removed.
This means that one liposuction is by no means a miracle cure to fatness. Indeed, the fat can return and may be lumpy or patchy which can be unsightly and requires the surgery to be done all over again.
The procedure is invasive and carries the risks of surgery including puncturing into the abdominal cavity, bleeding, and infection. It is limited to small areas of fat deposits in people who are already fit and healthy.
No surgical process is 100% safe. The risks depend on the surgeon’s experience, the quality of his work, the cleanliness of the procedure/place and postoperative environment as well as the health and hygiene of the patient.
