About Liposuction | Fat Removal Surgery

Losing weight isn’t easy. In this fast-paced world, losing weight implies that people need to tone up, eat healthily, exercise daily, etc. However, in some cases, even after performing all these exercises, it becomes impossible for humans to lose the stubborn amounts of fat, leading to extreme disappointment, loss of self-confidence, and severe depression.

In such cases, liposuction becomes a rewarding means in these cases. By the means of liposuction surgery, the accumulated pockets of fat can be removed by surgical means. Also referred to as fat removal surgery, it can be performed on numerous body parts such as hips, Abdomen, chin, and inner and
outer thighs, as a part of the tummy tuck procedure.


 The Liposuction Procedures

The liposuction is performed by using small skin incisions with tiny cannulas and suction Devices. It can be performed under Local Anesthesia or General Anesthesia.

These are

  1. Suction Assisted Lipoplasty: SAL liposuction surgery is the most common form of liposuction. The procedure involves saline along with Lignocaine and adrenaline infiltration prior to suctioning of excess fat. The infiltration can be by Tumescence or super-wet Technique. The Adrenaline reduces Bleeding.
  2. Power-assisted liposuction (PAL): This type of liposuction uses a cannula that moves in a rapid back-and-forth motion.
  3. Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction: Referred to by the acronym UAL, this procedure uses ultrasonic vibrations to convert fatty cells into a liquid form and suction them out.
  4. Laser-assisted liposuction: Similar to UAL, LAL or laser-assisted liposuction uses laser energy to liquefy fat cells and suction them out.

At Arra Aesthetics we use thinnest liposuction cannulas which require very small incisions sites which heals better and gives very good scar. Every region is treated as an aesthetic unit to give the best liposuction results in a natural and balanced way.
The Liposuction procedure duration varies depending upon the areas treated. Typically it may last from 30 mins to 3 hrs.
