Details About Liposuction

Liposuction is usually performed on the abdomen, thighs, neck, chin, back, arms, calves, and several other regions of the body. Using an instrument known as the cannula, this hollow device is inserted under the skin, where a high-pressure, though completely safe, a vacuum is connected to the cannula and prompts the taking out of fat. When it comes to your appearance, liposuction delivers, though it is worth mentioning that liposuction is by no means a method of weight loss, it cannot combat obesity. Bourhill Plastic Surgery, liposuction long island is here to help with any questions you may have regarding liposuction.

However, liposuction treats a variety of illnesses as well, including:

  • Gynecomastia
  • Lymphedema
  • Lipomas
  • Lipodystrophy Syndrome
  • Morbid obesity (removes abnormalities and/or excess skin caused by the fat)

Lymphedema occurs primarily in the arms and legs, it being a chronic condition where excess fluid collects in body tissues, which in turn cause swelling and overall discomfort. Liposuction is an ideal method of treatment against lymphedema because it cleans out the affected areas and makes you feel better as a whole. Gynecomastia is when males build fat beneath the breasts, resembling that of a female set of breasts. Lipodystrophy syndrome is when too much fat goes to one area of the body, in which liposuction comes to the rescue by ensuring the fat in your body is evenly distributed throughout. Lipomas are never severe, though they must be treated before they have the chance to be, as they begin as benign tumors.
