An effective surgical procedure to remove fatty deposits from areas where fat is unable to be shifted by exercise or diet. Your reason for choosing liposuction may be as simple as just wanting to look better in your clothes or want to look and feel better.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction is helpful when you have areas that fail to improve or excess fat. These are most frequently the outer thighs and hips for women and love handles and the tummy for men. You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you have localized excess fat or desire contouring in any of the following areas:
1. Cheeks, jowls and neck
2. Upper arms
3. Breast or chest areas back
4. Abdomen and waist
5. Hips and buttocks
6. Inner and outer thigh
7. Inner knee
8. Calves and ankles
Age is not the limiting factor for liposuction provided you are in good health. If your skin is stretched and loose from pregnancy or weight loss, then liposuction may not help. In these situations, it is more effective to remove the extra skin, itself. This is especially true in the arms, tummy, inner thighs and buttocks. Dr. Viral Desai can explain the best procedure to improve your appearance at your consultation.
We use the ‘tumescent technique’, where the surgeon injects large quantities of fluid through a small incision. The fluid reduces the risk of bleeding. The fat swells with the fluid going into the fat layers. A cannula is then passed through the swollen fat cells. Suction through the cannula removes the fatty tissue and the fluid that has been injected.
The incisions are very small (about 3-4 mm) and they are placed in the natural body creases, so that they are not visible.
The very small incisions made to insert the cannula are barely visible.
Dr. Desai is known for communicating with his patients to understand their real needs. “I talk to them at length to get a grasp of what they want”. He likes to screen his patients for “realistic expectations”, and is prompt to tell patients if their expectations are unrealistic. He believes in giving his patients accurate and complete information of the procedures.
