In the cosmopolitan city of Dubai, known for its advanced technology and exceptional healthcare services, liposuction is a transformative cosmetic procedure that helps thousands achieve their body goals. In addition to aesthetics, this procedure is about empowerment, confidence, and self-assurance.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction, or body contouring, is a surgical procedure to eliminate excess fat deposits in specific body areas to enhance overall contour and proportion. These fat deposits are often resistant to diet and exercise and can cause dissatisfaction with one’s body image.

According to the AASPS, liposuction has become a highly sought-after cosmetic procedure. In 2020, 211,067 individuals underwent this procedure, making it the second most sought-after cosmetic surgery. This trend highlights the growing popularity of liposuction as an effective solution for eliminating stubborn body fat.

The principle behind liposuction is relatively straightforward. The procedure involves removing fat cells from the body, reducing their number. The result is a more balanced distribution of body fat and improved body proportions.

Types of Liposuction

Following are the different types of liposuction available to you:

  • Laser-assisted Liposuction: A laser is used in Liposuction to remove fat cells by liquefying them with laser energy. The laser also helps to tighten the skin in the treated area, promoting a more sculpted look.
  • Tumescent Liposuction: This method involves injecting an anaesthetic solution and medication to constrict blood vessels into the treated area. Suctioning the fat cells out requires making a small incision.
  • Liposuction using ultrasonic vibrations: This method makes removing fat cells easier by breaking them down. This method removes fat from fibrous areas like the upper back or male breast tissue.
  • Power-assisted Liposuction: This procedure uses a special cannula that oscillates rapidly, breaking up fat cells for easier removal.

Procedure of Liposuction

The liposuction procedure involves the following steps:

  • Anaesthesia: Depending on the type and extent of the liposuction, local or general anaesthesia is administered.
  • Incisions: To remove fat, the surgeon makes small incisions.
  • Fat Removal: A thin, hollow cannula is inserted through the incisions to loosen and suction out fat cells.
  • Closing Incisions: Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, the incisions are closed with sutures.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction offers numerous benefits, such as:

  • Improved Appearance: Liposuction helps remove stubborn fat deposits, producing a more balanced and proportional body appearance.
  • Increased Self-confidence: An improved appearance often comes with increased self-confidence and body positivity.
  • Reduced Risk of Health Problems: Liposuction minimises the risk of excess body fat-related health problems by reducing body fat content.
  • Better Fitting Clothes: Liposuction may help your clothes fit more comfortably and look better on you.

Choosing a Liposuction Surgeon

When choosing a liposuction surgeon, it’s crucial to consider their credentials and certifications, experience in performing the procedure, reviews from past patients, and their approach during the consultation process, as these factors indicate their expertise and reliability.

  • Credentials and Certifications: Ensure the surgeon is board-certified in plastic surgery and licenced to perform lipo procedures.
  • Experience: The surgeon should have considerable experience performing liposuction and be able to share before-and-after photos of previous procedures.
  • Reviews and Testimonials: Look for reviews and testimonials from past patients to gauge the surgeon’s reputation and expertise.
  • Consultation Process: The surgeon should provide a thorough consultation, explaining the procedure, potential risks, and expected results in detail.

Evaluating the Risks: An Honest Look at the Best Liposuction Surgery in Dubai

Like any other surgery, liposuction carries some risks. These may include:

  • Infection: Liposuction carries a low risk of disease, around 1%, which can be treated with antibiotics. Following post-operative care instructions is important to minimise this risk.
  • Scarring: Liposuction incisions can result in small scars that fade over time and become less noticeable. Surgeons use techniques to minimise scarring; post-operative scar care instructions can help.
  • Fluid Imbalance: Liposuction involves injecting and suctioning fluid, disrupting the fluid balance. Experienced surgical teams monitor this to prevent complications like kidney or heart problems.
  • Fat Embolism: Although rare, a fat embolism can occur during liposuction if loosened fat enters a blood vessel. Measures are taken during the procedure to minimise these liposuction risks.

Choosing a qualified and experienced liposuction surgeon can significantly reduce these risks. Dr. Shehzadi Tasneem Sultan provides detailed information and encourage patients to weigh the benefits and potential risks before deciding on the procedure.

Your Preparation Checklist for Liposuction

The journey to achieving your desired body through liposuction begins with a thorough consultation. You’ll discuss your health history, body goals, and concerns during this initial meeting. It’s vital to approach this consultation with an open mind and be prepared with any questions.

  • Healthy Lifestyle
  • Cease Smoking and Alcohol
  • Medication Management

Healthy Lifestyle

Maintaining a healthy diet is essential before the procedure. Ensure you consume balanced meals, and avoid crash dieting or extreme weight fluctuations, as they can impact the surgery results and recovery.

Cease Smoking and Alcohol

If you’re a smoker, you’ll be advised to quit smoking several weeks before surgery, as smoking can affect healing. As well, alcohol should be avoided, as it can interfere with anaesthesia and increase bleeding.

Medication Management

Certain drugs might need to be paused or adjusted before surgery if you’re on medication. Discuss all your current medications with your surgeon, including over-the-counter medicines.

During the Liposuction

It usually takes one to four hours to remove fat through liposuction. For your comfort, anaesthesia is administered during the process. Your surgeon will make small incisions, insert a thin tube or cannula, and apply a laser, ultrasound, or fluid to break down the fat cells, which are suctioned out.

After the Procedure

The Consultation Process: Your First Step Towards Transformation

Before any liposuction treatment, it’s important to book a consultation. This initial consultation is crucial in determining if you are a suitable candidate for liposuction. We understand that every person is unique, as are their aesthetic desires and health conditions.

The consultation includes discussing your cosmetic goals, a medical history review, and a physical examination. During your consultation, your surgeon will explain liposuction and the results you can expect.

Are you a suitable candidate for liposuction? Understanding the Criteria

Only some people are suitable candidates for liposuction. Ideal candidates are those in good general health who are within 30% of their ideal weight, have good skin elasticity, and have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Unlike traditional weight loss methods, liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes fat from the body that does not respond to them.

Stable Body WeightCandidates should be at a relatively stable weight, as liposuction is not a weight loss method but a body contouring procedure.
Healthy LifestyleThose who maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen but have stubborn areas of localised fat that are resistant to reduction.
Realistic ExpectationsIndividuals who understand that liposuction can enhance body contours but not drastically change overall appearance.
Good General HealthCandidates should have no serious medical conditions that could increase surgical risks or hinder recovery.
Targeted Fat DepositsSuitable for people with specific areas of excess fat that are difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise alone.
Skin ElasticityCandidates with good skin elasticity are likely to experience smoother results after fat removal.
Non-SmokerNon-smokers have lower surgical risks and tend to experience better healing and results.
Positive Mental HealthEmotional stability is important, as cosmetic procedures can affect body image perception.
Commitment to AftercareFollowing post-operative instructions and adopting a healthy lifestyle to maintain results.
