What is liposuction?
Liposuction surgery also known as Lipoplasty is a cosmetic procedure for removing excess body fat from specific areas, such as the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks. With this minimally invasive technique, you can get rid of the stubborn fat deposits that don’t go away with diet and exercise. Liposuction contours your body and makes you look lean and bold. Also, note that liposuction surgery is not a treatment for weight loss.

What is the procedure for liposuction?
Liposuction surgery in Dubai typically involves the following steps:
Before the procedure
Before the surgery, Dr Demetrius will ask about any medical conditions and ask you about specific questions to understand more about your health, lifestyle, and goals from this procedure. You will be asked to quit smoking and avoid certain drugs and foods.
During the procedure
Liposuction is generally performed under general anaesthesia. The liposuction procedure essentially involves breaking down localised fat and using a small cannula attached to a suction pump to remove the excess fat from the body.
Given below are three different types of liposuction techniques and their procedures.
Tumescent liposuction is the most popular technique for removing excess fat. It involves injecting a saline solution into the target region. The solution is absorbed by the fat deposit, which causes it to swell. The surgeon then makes small incisions and inserts a microcannula attached to a suction machine in the target region to extract the undesired fat.
During ultrasound-assisted liposuction, a metal rod is inserted through small incisions around the target region. The ultrasound-powered rod produces vibrational energy to break down and liquefy stubborn fat, which can be easily removed through a cannula.
The laser-assisted liposuction involves inserting a high-energy laser fibre into the target area. The intense laser light emulsifies the fat deposit, which is carefully extracted with a cannula.
After the procedure
After the procedure, you will be given specific instructions for your speedy recovery. You will be prescribed medicines and instructed to use binder belts to control bleeding and swelling.

Frequently Asked Questions
Most body parts where there is fat beneath the skin can be treated by liposuction. However, with certain exceptions, it is typically not done in the forearm, ankle region, hands, feet, the lower part of the neck, back of the neck, etc. Instead, it serves a specific purpose and is applied to the face to give it a slimmer appearance.
This depends on several factors, mainly the amount of fat in the abdominal cavity or deep beyond the muscular layer. Liposuction DOES NOT remove this fat. Only the fat that is superficial to the muscles is eliminated.
This relies on the skin’s elasticity, the amount of extra skin, and whether stretch marks already exist. Immediately following liposuction, the skin must contract to the new size. Generally, skin that bears stretch marks can no longer contract after liposuction. In a similar way, the skin’s capacity to contract lessens with age.
Again, if there have been many weight fluctuations, the skin is less elastic and contracts less. With so many variables, it is obvious that the doctor cannot anticipate whether or not this skin will shrink before an inspection.
Fat from the treated area is permanently removed with liposuction. However, if the person continues to consume more calories than they expend through activity, fat might still build up in untreated areas. The final word is that lipo delivers long-term benefits to people with a steady weight and a healthy lifestyle.
Liposuction in a particular area is generally done once only. Some people might benefit from touch-up work, especially if there are asymmetries. The benefits of subsequent liposuctions diminish over time as they become more challenging and dangerous. This is why it’s crucial to finish the task well the first time.
The most crucial fact is that Liposuction is NOT A SURGERY FOR WEIGHT LOSS. Any weight loss is unintended and not the surgery’s goal. Many people are surprised to learn that the ideal candidate for liposuction is someone who is stable at a normal or almost normal weight but has concerns with undesirable fat accumulations altering their body shapes. We typically don’t aspirate more than 4-6 litres of fat, which translates to a maximum weight loss of 4 kg.
