Liposuction: Myths and Facts!

Liposuction: Myths and Facts!

There are many different kinds of cosmetic surgeries for different parts of your body, ranging from invasive and minimally invasive surgeries. One of the most common cosmetic surgeries in Pune is liposuction, in which the excess fat is suctioned out from the part or parts of the body.

Liposuction surgery is popular because it is one of the most effective ways to remove excess fat from specific areas of the body. It can also be used to sculpt and contour the body.

There are many myths and misconceptions about liposuction surgery, so it's important to get the facts before making any decisions. In this blog, we dispel some of the most common myths about liposuction and provide you with the facts you need to know before you decide to get it done.

Myth: Liposuction is weight loss surgery

Fact: Liposuction may help in weight loss

This is the most common myth about liposuction. Liposuction is done to get rid of the excess fat in the body. This does not mean that liposuction treatment can help patients lose weight. It is helpful in weight loss only when the candidate for liposuction is within 30% of their ideal body weight.

Myth: Liposuction is only for women

Fact: Men can go through liposuction too

It is a myth that liposuction is done only for women. It is quite common among men as well. Though liposuction treatment works differently for men and women, it is effective for both and is one of the most common plastic surgeries among men.

Myth: Liposuction is not for older people

Fact: Liposuction can be performed on any adult with good skin elasticity

Liposuction is suitable for any adult who is in excellent health and has had a thorough medical examination. However, with age, laxity and suppleness in the skin and underlying tissues diminish. Loose skin or sagging skin present a challenge to surgeons attempting to reshape or lift the entire body. This can make liposuction difficult for older patients, so it is best to have a consultation with a qualified surgeon before deciding whether to undergo liposuction.

Myth: Liposuction will get rid of cellulite

Fact: Liposuction is the removal of fat, not cellulite

Liposuction is a fat removal technique and cellulite is different from fat. Cellulite is a common condition that affects the appearance of the skin, causing it to look dimpled or lumpy. Liposuction works from the inside and gets rid of the excess fat tissue and fat cells. Although it reduces cellulite to some amount, it isn't always helpful for the complete eradication of cellulite.

Myth: Liposuction gets rid of future fat

Fact: The body may get back to its older shape post-surgery

Liposuction gets rid of the present fat cells. The procedure can't stop the future changes in the fat deposition in the body. If the diet isn't balanced and there's minimal physical activity, the results of the surgery will reverse and the fat will return.

Myth: Liposuction eradicates stretch marks

Fact: Liposuction works under the skin

Stretch marks are caused by excessive stretching of the deep layers of skin. Stretch marks are on the skin and fat is beneath it. Liposuction treatment works on fat and therefore does not affect stretch marks. Post-liposuction areas that have many stretch marks will not have a smooth and tight look after the procedure.

Myth: Diet and exercise are not required after liposuction

Fact: Liposuction is not a permanent solution

The patient undergoing a liposuction procedure must understand that it is simply a step in achieving their ideal body figure. It is not the full solution. Excessive weight gain after liposuction will produce unflattering results. A careful health regimen with a sensible healthy diet and a regular workout plan will help in the healing process and maintain desired results long-term.

Myth: Liposuction is dangerous

Fact: Liposuction is a completely safe cosmetic procedure

Any surgical procedure carries certain risks. But liposuction is a very safe cosmetic procedure when performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon. In fact, liposuction is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic treatments in the world.

Myth: Liposuction causes skin irregularities

Fact: If performed by a Board-Certified plastic surgeon, liposuction will not cause skin irregularities

Liposuction-induced puckering of the skin is unusual. The key is for the doctor to be cautious and remove all of the fat from an area completely. This requires a combination of training, expertise, and experience, so it is important to consult with a qualified liposuction provider before undergoing the procedure.

Myth: Any surgeon can perform liposuction

Fact: Not all surgeons are qualified to perform liposuction

Liposuction is a complex cosmetic procedure that requires specialized training and experience.

Liposuction should only be performed by a Board-Certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing the procedure. It's critical to do your research and look for board-certified plastic surgeons that specialize in liposuction if you're considering it. With any type of cosmetic surgery, you should always do your homework and learn everything you can about the surgeon and the procedure before making any decisions.
