What is Lipoplasty?
Although excessive body fat leads to weight gain and complications of obesity, having a healthy and balanced amount of fat is the primary key to achieve the health and beauty of the face and body organs. Lipoplasty consists of methods that even out the adipose tissue in different parts of the body. It is sometimes done by surgical and sometimes by non-surgical means, sometimes by removing excess adipose tissue and sometimes by injecting and adding fat tissue or fillers to the target area. In many cases, excessive fatty tissue discharge and removal (for example, after extensive and unprofessional liposuction) lead to severe deformities and unpleasant unevenness in the body, limbs, and organs, which are sometimes very difficult or even impossible to repair. New lipo-transfer techniques (with or without plasma injection) PRP has made a significant contribution to the correction of these complications.
Smart Fat Removal
Laser lipolysis method was introduced in order to achieve optimal and accurate results in the field of body sculpture. This technology, which has been around for about three decades uses various types of wavelengths in forms of Diod or Id-yag, in order to melt and degrade fat cells by thermal energy. The use of fine optical fibers with a diameter of less than 1 mm makes the device's inlet holes very tiny and intangible. In addition, the precision of fat burning has reached the best possible level preventing unevenness of the treated area. Radiation of the laser beam into the subcutaneous tissue through thermal energy also stimulates the formation of collagen fibers on the surface of the skin and increases its elasticity. This causes some tightening and lifting of the affected area of the skin and, in spite of the removal of the adipose tissue, it prevents skin loosening in the future.
Golden recommendations to people who have had failed liposuction or lipolysis treatments in the past.
The unwanted side effects of liposuction, such as asymmetry and uneven proportionality, excessive removal of adipose tissue, or the presence of adipose tissue in the undesirable position and skin loosening, are the possible side effects of this procedure. Fortunately, today, with the use of lipolysis technique, with or without local fat injection, many of these complications can be corrected, but it is recommended that correction or revision to be performed at least 6 months after the initial procedure so that any inflammation and swelling in the treated area are disappeared and the initial formation is achieved.
What is the main cause of irregularities after liposuction or lipolysis treatments?
In more than 50% of cases, incorrect techniques result in inadequate or excessive adipose tissue withdrawal from the treated area. Laser lipolysis technique has improved the precision and safety in these operations and prevented the related complications. In some cases, the remained local lipid, and blood secretions are responsible for the area's deformity; therefore it is recommended that patients refer to at least 2-3 post-operative sessions after their lipolysis treatment in order to learn how to perform professional massages and get their discharge drained. Another critical point is the inappropriate use of corsets or using low-quality corsets. A standard corset is usually made of linen or cotton, and it has an appropriate size. It helps the treated area to form appropriately.
What is the method used in preoperative revision?
Correction of minor complications can usually be done in the form of an outpatient with local anesthetic and even in the office. Nonetheless, more severe irregularity and deformity of the limbs or body may require more complex methods and more sessions. During these sessions, while conducting corrective lipolysis in the areas needed, fillers may also be injected in the cupped regions of the body. Currently, the person’s fat (Auto logus fat) is introduced as the best and most affordable filler in different areas of the body, and this live tissue with fat cells, growth factors and rejuvenation best fill the defects caused by lipolysis and smoothens the surface of the skin. This natural filler is also used to highlight areas like cheeks, face, lips and lower limbs.
What is the position of open surgery?
In cases which, in addition to local skin deformities, the patient has excessive loosen skin, open surgery is usually used to remove excess skin (lifting). For example, in people who due to severe fluctuations in body weight, or previous pregnancies, the skin has loosened and they have stretch marks in the abdomen, apart from removing adipose tissue from the abdomen and waist, excess skin is also removed from the lower parts of the abdomen. In this surgery which is called abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, it is possible to repair the abdominal loosen muscles and even to treat local hernias.
