The Process of 3D Liposuction and its Recovery Procedure
Liposuction is a surgical method that improves body contour by removing unwanted fat from deposits between the muscle and skin. It involves using a small stainless steel tube, known as cannula. The cannula is attached to a suction pump and inserted into the fat through small openings in the skin. Fat removal is done as the suction cannula creates small tunnels through fatty layers. After the surgery, these tunnels collapse and result in an improved body contour.
Common areas where this treatment can be done include — the abs, arms, thighs, buttocks, love handles, tummy and below the chin. Liposuction involves draining out extra fat from your body that is hard to lose through healthy diet and proper exercise.
The process of liposuction
Liposuction is usually performed under general anaesthetic, though epidural anaesthetic may be used for 3d lipo on lower portion of the body. The surgeon will spot the area of your body from where fat needs to be removed. Once this is done, he/she will:
· inject this part with a solution of anaesthetic and medication. This will lessen flow of blood, bruising and swelling.
· divide fat cells with high-frequency vibrations such as a high-pressure water jet or a weak laser pulse
· make a small opening and insert the suction tube that is attached with the vacuum machine. The surgeon may have to create several cuts if the area is large
· move the suction tube in the backward and forward direction to decrease the fat and then suck it out
· drain out extra amount of blood and fluid
· stitch up and dress the affected area
The entire process usually requires one to three hours. Usually, people have to stay in the hospital overnight when the treatment is done.
After 3d liposuction at our clinic in London is done, you will be tied a bandage or elastic support corset on the treated area. This will lessen the swelling and should be worn for sometime after the surgery is done. The doctor may ask you to take an antibiotic to lessen the risk of infection and relieve pain and swelling. Besides, you need to ask about 3d lipo cost to know if the treatment will suit your affordability.
The recovery procedure
You will usually require two weeks’ time to recover completely after liposuction. If the treatment involved general anaesthetic, then someone will have to stay with you for the first 24 hours. If a small area had been treated, then you may return to work within a few days. If a large area was treated, then you may need more time to recover completely. Avoid tiresome activities for almost a month to recover completely. Although the results of the treatment may not be noticeable, it may take nearly six months for the affected area to recover completely. Although the stitches will be removed after a week, yet you should begin with any sports or strenuous activities only after four to six weeks.

He will take you through surgery process with safety and discuss financing options available with the treatment.
