Liposuction can be done for which areas of the body?

Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. Liposuction has stood the test of time and is a safe procedure if performed in an accredited health care facility and under the guidance of a certified plastic surgeon.

Liposuction is a procedure that removes the fat deposits from the subcutaneous or what we call the plane under the skin. So, it is ideally suited for individuals who have more subcutaneous fat. The other type of fat which is present in the human body is visceral fat, and is located around the important organs deep within the body like the heart, lungs, kidneys, intestines, etc. This visceral fat cannot be removed by liposuction. A very good method of knowing this on you own is to know what is your Body Mass Index or what we call BMI.

The Body Mass Index is a ratio of your weight in kilograms divided by the square of your height in meters (kg/m2). If one's Body Mass Index is more than 30 then the chances are less likely that you will benefit from liposuction. During your consultation, Dr. Ateesh will make a clinical assessment for you and will further guide you on whether you are a suitable candidate for liposuction surgery or not. The decision whether one will benefit from liposuction or not is the single most important parameter determining the success of the procedure and satisfaction rate amongst the patients.

The areas which can benefit from liposuction are ( Listed sequentially from Head to Toe )

          Face Liposuction

Liposuction can be combined for two or more of the above areas. We usually recommend limiting the lipoaspirate to 5 liters in a single session so as to limit it as a daycare procedure and low a faster and uneventful recovery.

You may choose to utilize the suctioned out fat to be transferred back into certain specific areas of the body like buttock ( Brazilian butt lift), Breast ( Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer/ Breast Fat Grafting) or nano fat to Face ( Fat Transfer to face)
