Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and “sucks” fat from the body.
Most commonly, liposuction is used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back.
During liposuction, the fat is removed through a hollow instrument – a cannula – which is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula. A local anesthetic might be used when liposuction is done on very small areas.
Liposuction is not an overall weight-loss method – it is not a treatment for obesity. Liposuction does not remove cellulite, dimples, or stretch marks. The aim is aesthetic – the patient wishes to change and enhance the contour of their body.
Liposuction permanently removes fat cells, altering the shape of the body. However, if the patient does not lead a healthy lifestyle after the operation, there is a risk that the remaining fat cells will grow bigger.
Liposuction has a number of possible risks, including infection, numbness, and scarring. If too much fat is removed, there may be lumpiness or dents in the skin. Lipomatic is specialist technology that creates a constant vibration. With Lipomatic the surgeon can perform the operation in a relaxed way without using physical force, which is normal in standard liposuction.
This means the precision of movement during the operation always stays the same which means shorter operations and better recovery times.
Lipomatic is a FDA approved device that has advanced the traditional technique of performing liposuction, making it safe and effective while ensuring a pleasant experience for the patient throughout the procedure.
The advanced technology of the Lipomatic allows fat removal in high volume with precision and allows access to difficult and delicate areas of the body such as buttocks, calves and knees, which reduces the operative time as well as the recovery period for the patient.
How does Lipomatic work?
Lipomatic is a compressed air-assisted machine which is connected to a cannula that automatically rotates 360 degrees. The cannula has a constant vibrating motion that efficiently emulsifies the fat cells without harming the skin and tissues making the whole experience very relaxing for the patient.
The device is extremely easy to handle which allows plastic surgeons to concentrate on precision ensuring the best results.
Advantages of Lipomatic
• Reduction of bruising on the skin
• Minimal or no pain
• Safe and effective
• Fast recovery
• Excellent skin retraction post-op
• Immediate stop if cannula meets non-fatty tissues
