Liposuction surgery is among the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the world, regardless of age and gender. Of course, this body contouring procedure is only the last resort when natural attempts such as exercise and dieting fail to achieve the desired results. Advanced techniques such as laser liposuction using Smartlipo Triplex provide great body contouring results with minimal complications and downtime. However, the skilled and experience of the plastic surgeon really counts when it comes to the outcome and patient comfort and safety. In fact, skilled and experienced liposuction surgeons adopt certain measures to provide optimal results. Let’s take a look at these additional steps that can go a long way in reducing complications and helping you achieve the desired outcome:
- The extra attention begins right from the consultation phase. A reliable surgeon focuses on evaluating patients properly to ensure that they have no specific conditions that can adversely affect the treatment, results and recovery. They would also carefully analyze skin tone and quality and look for stretch marks and asymmetries. The surgeon would bring these conditions to your attention. Such detailed evaluation helps the physician determine the right liposuction technique for the individual patient. The surgeon would consider factors such as the patient’s overall health, the patient’s body mass index (BMI), the extent of fat to be removed, the number of sites to be treated, and any other associated procedures to be performed in order to determine the best technique for you.
- When large liposuction instruments are used, it could lead to irregularities, lumps, bumps or other unfavorable results. Experienced surgeons attempt to reduce such risks by using body sculpting modalities with a small, minimally invasive cannula. For instance, the SmartLipo cannula is only about 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter.
- Blood clots are a real concern for all surgery and lipolyis is no exception. The surgeon would take care of this by placing compression devices on the legs at the time of the surgery. By gently squeezing the legs even when the patient is asleep, the device minimizes the risk of blood clot formation.
- Surgeons also take measures to minimize bruising during the treatment by injecting a tumescent fluid with properties to constrict the blood vessels. This reduces bruising. The use of an advanced pain relief system that anesthetizes the surgical site continuously for a few days after the treatment also provides benefits such as faster and more comfortable recovery, improved mobility, and fewer side effects and complications.
A reliable liposuction surgeon will adopt the right measures before, during and after the treatment to make the surgical experience a smooth, safe and comfortable one for the patient and help them achieve the best results. The surgeon would also take care to provide them with the necessary instructions to ensure a speedy recovery and long-term results.
