Discover Treatment Options with Female Liposuction
Even though liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, it is a technique that can be used to remove unwanted fat deposits. Over the course of time, patients may experience an unusual distribution of fat around their body. In most cases, these patients are on or around their target weight and are having serious difficulties to eliminate those fats. To learn more about the solutions female liposuction can deliver in these cases, and find out more about the procedure itself, please read the information provided by the Dr Lanzer Clinic below.
How Does Female Liposuction Work?
Liposuction is a viable treatment for a localised area of fat, which is difficult to remove through diet and exercise alone. In some cases, female liposuction can be a good treatment for patients with a considerable amount of weight to lose; this type of treatment is referred to as the mega liposuction. However, for the purpose of this article, we will examine the basic female liposuction procedure.
During a lipo procedure, the surgeon needs to make an incision to get access to the area where fat has to be removed. The number and size of the incisions will depend on the treatment area and the amount of fat that needs to be removed from that area. In general, the surgeon only needs to make one incision to get access to the treatment area.
When an incision has been made in the skin near the treatment area, the surgeon can insert a cannula (a narrow metal tube). The inserted cannula is connected to a vacuum machine, which will be used to remove the fat. To ensure the fat is loosened before removal, the surgeon will make a back and forth movement to loosen the fat further.
Lipo procedures have evolved a bit since their creation, because there are additional techniques that can be used during such procedures. These techniques will loosen the fat even more, making it easier to remove and reduce the chance of complications after a procedure. A good example of such a technique is tumescent liposuction, a procedure where the surgeon will inject a tumescent solution into the treatment area. The tumescent solution consists of an anaesthetic and epinephrine. The combination of these substances sedates the treatment area, and reduces the chance of bleeding and side-effects after the treatment. Because of the multiple benefits of the tumescent solution, patients will find that many surgeons implement this particular technique during a lipo procedure.
There are additional techniques that may be implemented during a lipo procedure. However, the use of these techniques is dependent on the amount of fat to be removed, the experience of the surgeon and the available medical equipment. One of the latest techniques to become available to patients is the ultrasound-assisted liposuction, where fat is broken down with soundwaves. However, this technique is still executed in combination with a tumescent solution.
What Side-Effects Are Common After a Female Liposuction Procedure?
No matter if a patient undergoes a surgical or non-surgical treatment, side-effects are always a part of procedures. Fortunately, Dr Lanzer and his medical team aim to keep any side-effects following a treatment to an absolute minimum.
One of the most common side-effects following a lipo procedure is bruising. In general, the larger the treatment area and the amount of fat that needs to be removed, the more bruising a patient may experience. The amount of bruising also depends on the patient, because some patients bruise more easily than others. Bruising and discolouration following a lipo procedure eventually dissipate, although the timeframe in which bruising and discolouration disappear is different for each patient.
Are the Effects of Lipo Long Term?
Surgeons will remove fat cells from the treatment area long term, so fat is unlikely to return to this area. One could state that the results obtained from lipo are independent of changes in body weight, but this is not entirely true. Even though the fat cannot return to the location where it was removed, fat can accumulate in other places on the body. To ensure fat does not accumulate in another location, patients need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine after their lipo procedure.
Even though lipo is a good procedure for persistent fat deposits, there are some limitations to what a lipo procedure can do. First of all, lipo is not a treatment for obesity, but focuses on the removal of fat in a localised area that is safe to remove. In most cases of normal liposuction, the surgeon will remove 3 litres of fat. However, the treatment can be somewhat intensified during a mega liposuction, in which case the surgeon can remove more than 8 litres over the course over several sessions.
Lipo is also a procedure that should be executed in patients with good, elastic skin. Considering the body has to conform to a new shape, the skin needs to conform to this shape as well. The more resilient the skin of a patient is, the more likely it will conform to its new shape.
In some cases, lipo needs to be combined with a tummy tuck; this is usually the case for patients who have a certain amount of excess skin after a procedure, or patients who have lost a tremendous amount of weight before the procedure and are currently struggling with excess skin.
Lipo is an effective treatment, but not suitable for the treatment of cellulite. However, there are some complementary treatments that can be taken advantage of after your lipo procedure. These treatments are of a non-surgical nature and can be used after the recovery process has ended.

Is Liposuction the Right Treatment for Me?
Patients struggling with a persistent fat deposit could use a lipo treatment to get rid of those persistent fat deposits. However, to determine if lipo could be beneficial for you, you will need to book an appointment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. New patients can benefit from a free, no-obligation appointment, where they can learn more about available treatments and the best treatment options for them.
