What is spot liposuction?
A: That term identifies having liposuction using one little area the individual doesn’t like. It is a very small focus that requires only a little anesthetic. It can also be done after folks have had liposuction and discover one tiny area of fat remaining that they want removed.
Q: What forms of sedation are used for liposuction?
A: Shots could be given in the muscle to provide narcotics and anti-anxiety medication. They can be distributed by mouth or injected intravenously – the decision is up to the physician and the anesthesiologist
Q: Are there many different sizes of cannulas?
A: In the beginning, cannulas were 10 millimeters, that is 1 centimeter, more than a third of an inch in diameter.
Today, surgeons are employing a cannula that is much smaller, about a sixteenth of an inch. simplyrenting is about the size of a pretzel rod. The smaller ones in use today are about the size of small pretzel sticks. The size of the insertion hole relates to the size of the cannula found in that area.
The openings of the cannulas may also be different. You can find more aggressive cannulas to work on deeper planes when surgeons want to get more fat out. And you can find less aggressive cannulas for focusing on superficial planes, where they don’t really want to create indentations. The size used also depends on the pattern, size, and amount of the openings in the patient’s skin.
Q: Are sutures required after liposuction?
A: True tumescent liposuction is purposely done without suturing the insertion sites. This enables an exit for the fluid, permitting it to drain out. However, many doctors prefer to sew the incisions closed with sutures.
Q: Is there scars when suturing isn’t used?
A: You can find scars whether stitches are used or not, but they can frequently be treated in the future if they bother the patients. Oftentimes, they are hidden, so no-one sees them in the first place.
Points To Remember
The dry technique, with general anesthetic and no injected fluids, had negative effects and is not any longer performed.
The wet technique uses injected fluids and is very safe.
Tumescent liposuction uses injected fluids that cause tissues to swell and allow patients to remain awake during the procedure.
Tumescent anesthetic combines lidocaine to numb and epinephrine (adrenaline) to constrict blood vessels and minimize bleeding.
Ultrasonic liposuction heats and liquefies fat. The inner form requires special surgical skills; the external form can be used to liquefy fat prior to treatment with tumescent liposuction.
Surgeons can remove fat with syringes or with machine-powered cannulas.
Powered liposuction uses a high-powered cannula that moves back and forth to create fat removal faster and easier.
High-volume liposuction, with removal of more than 4 or 5 5 liters of fat at one session, isn’t recommended.
Different forms of sedation are available, administered orally or by injection.
Cannulas can be found in different sizes and leave different size insertion openings.
Some surgeons allow insertions sites to drain, while some sew them up with sutures.
