Liposuction is popularly known for removing fat from the body. Not only can it slim down potential patients, it’s a procedure that is included in other cosmetics surgeries such as Brazilian butt lifts, breast fat transfers, and sometimes even Tummy Tuck Miami. Though it’s regularly used to help patients be more confident in their body, it also has medical benefits.
Simply called lipo, liposuction utilizes a long thin tube called a cannula to remove fat from different parts of the body. To prepare the fat for removal, the surgeon liquefies the fat which reduces blood loss and makes it easier for the fat to be removed. The fat then gets vacuumed out of the designated areas.
Liposuction can target fat in almost any part of the body that stores fat. This includes the stomach, arms, thighs, and even the face. Because the surgery involves minimal scarring and a relatively short recovery process, liposuction has gained popularity. Check out our Liposuction Before and After gallery.
Lymphedema and lipodystrophy
For patients who suffer from lymphedema, liposuction can be beneficial. Also known as lymphatic insufficiency, lymphedema is a long-term and sometimes chronic medical condition where the body tissues accumulate an excessive amount of fluid that causes swelling. In many cases, lymphedema occurs in the arms and thighs. Liposuction can reduce the swelling as well as the irritation and soreness that comes with lymphedema.
Liposuction in Miami can also be beneficial to people who have lipodystrophy syndrome which is when the body can’t produce and/or maintain healthy fat tissue. The syndrome may include a group of disorders that are usually genetic.
Because the body can’t maintain the fat in the body, the body fat will settle in specific body parts and be absent in other body parts. This can have negative effects on self-esteem. With liposuction, not only can the fat be removed it can be moved around through fat grafting. This can help with healing and successfully redistribute fat around the body evenly.
