Ways and Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction has rapidly turned out to be a popular phenomenon amid rising obese levels in the United Arab Emirates as the masses are increasingly on the lookout for the best liposuction in Dubai.

Approximately 47.5 percent of the UAE residents were found overweight with an average BMI of 25.6 in a survey report by Zurich International Life released in Sept. 2015. According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), around 2.8 million persons lose their lives to obesity every year across the world. The global obesity level has more than doubled between 1980 and 2014.

Liposuction is an outpatient medical procedure which is used on the neck, chin, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, calves, and back. The medical procedure has emerged as one of the best solutions to suction the fat deposits out of the human body through an insertion of cannula.


What are liposuction techniques?

In the last decade or so, the global medical procedures have improved drastically, which have added reliability factor to the whole liposuction thing and the technological advancements have resulted in lesser or no pain. There are three basic techniques for liposuction, i.e. tumescent liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and laser-assisted liposuction.


Tumescent liposuction

The tumescent liposuction procedure requires local anesthesia so as to numb only a certain part or area of a human body where doctor inserts a tube. The recipient doesn’t have to sleep through this type of liposuction procedure because of the local anesthesia, not the general one.


Ultrasound-assisted liposuction

The ultrasound-assisted liposuction liquefies fat inside the human body parts including upper abdomen, neck, and sides, thereby making the whole procedure of fat removal a walk in the park.


Laser-assisted liposuction

As the name suggests, the doctor uses laser waves to melt the fat inside the human body which is taken out through a tube or a cannula. Once the practitioner completes the process, he or she wraps the certain area on the human body to keep it safe from any chances of bruising or swelling. The person may be advised to keep the dressing on for an approximate period of three to four weeks to give the area the best chance to heal. Generally, swelling or bruising follow the procedure but they seldom last more than 10 days. Doctors mostly give their patients antibiotics to help reduce the chances of such infections.


In most cases, the people are able to get up and walk around soon after the treatment or as soon as anesthesia or sedation loses effects on the brain and body. Recovery may take a longer period if massive areas were subjected to liposuction.
