Fat deposits in the body that are resistant to exercise & dieting can be taken care of with the help of liposuction.
The liposuction technique involves placing tiny (approx 4 mm) cuts over hidden areas & removing unwanted fat from underneath the skin. The procedure is done as day care case and involves very little downtime(usually one week). The patient needs to wear a pressure garment, which is like a tight cloth, for a period of six - eight weeks & the patient can wear his or her normal dress over the pressure garment and do his/her routine work.
There are no long term affects and the procedure can be repeated if needed for the same site or any other site in the body. The liposuction is usually done for tummy, side rolls, thighs, calves, arms and breasts etc. Double chin appearance can also be taken care with the help of liposuction.
As an added advantage, if a person needs lipofilling in some areas eg. cheeks, face,lips or any other depressed area in the body, the fat can be suctioned from where it is not needed and injected at area where it is needed, by the process of Lipo-filling or Lipo-transfer
