While performing any kind of body contouring procedures, the surgeon must remember the important rule, which is not to harm any body parts during the surgery. This simple basic aim of every surgeon can only be achieved when they have adequate amount of qualifications and skills to perform the procedure, although fellowship is ideal, but adequate training is required at least which consists seminars, memberships and hands on training.
The surgeon must be capable of diagnosing the cardiovascular, surgical, and pharmacological complications and risk and this article will focus on how the Liposuction has been growing due to the surgeon’s presence if mind and surgical skills and knowledge.
It is very necessary for the surgeon to visualize the proposed end result as a predictable outcome since, body contouring procedure is viewed as an art, where the body is remodeled and sculpted to meet the aesthetically desired results. The surgeon should have a definite eye for understanding the human anatomy, eye for beauty and knowledge of the cultural aesthetic goals.
This approach uses the ultrasonic energy waves which first emulsify or melted the fat and instantly aspired out. The treatable areas are infused with normal saline mixed anesthesia, drug and a vasoconstrictor. However, this method also has drawbacks since if the heat energy produced can burn the skin and surrounding tissues as well if the cannula is probed into the area for longer period of stipulated time. The back and forth of the cannula should be done smoothly without damaging the surrounding nerve vessels and tissues and skin, or else it might lead to bleeding and bruising. This method is the advanced technique compared to the traditional method since it is done in 3 sequences as the infusion, emulsification and aspiration and also skin contouring results in more smoother and recovery time is faster. The aesthetic results are safe and satisfactory done by the qualified surgeon.
The traditional technique uses the local anesthesia is used to eliminate large volumes of subcutaneous fat and in the current technique which is the UAL or also known as Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction, approach required a large amount of tumescent fluid and a metal probe, cannula, which emitted ultrasonic energy waves which helps in breaking down of the subcutaneous fat. Although the UAL approach has an increased risk of skin burns and severe scarring, but it achieved enhanced body contour with optimal aesthetic results with effective emulsification of fat and less total energy application. The power assisted Lipo uses the power which is supplied by the electric motor or by compressed air producing either a rapid in – out movement. This makes the lipo much easier than that of the manual work done by the surgeon.
