What is spot liposuction?
A: That term refers to having liposuction using one little area the person doesn’t like. It is just a very small focus that requires only a little anesthetic. It is also done after people have had liposuction and find one tiny area of fat remaining that they want removed.
Q: What types of sedation are used for liposuction?
A: Shots could be given in the muscle to deliver narcotics and anti-anxiety medication. They may be distributed by mouth or injected intravenously – the decision is up to health related conditions and the anesthesiologist
Q: Are there many different sizes of cannulas?
A: Initially, cannulas were 10 millimeters, that is 1 centimeter, greater than a third of an inch in diameter.
Today, surgeons are employing a cannula that’s much smaller, about a sixteenth of an inch. A 10 millimeter cannula is approximately how big is a pretzel rod. The smaller ones in use today are about the size of small pretzel sticks. How big is the insertion hole relates to the size of the cannula found in that area.
The openings of the cannulas are also different. There are more aggressive cannulas to focus on deeper planes when surgeons want to get more fat out. And there are less aggressive cannulas for working on superficial planes, where they don’t really desire to create indentations. The size used also depends on the pattern, size, and amount of the openings in the patient’s skin.
Q: Are sutures required after liposuction?
simplyrenting : True tumescent liposuction is purposely done without suturing the insertion sites. This allows an exit for the fluid, permitting it to drain out. But some doctors prefer to sew the incisions closed with sutures.
Q: Is there scars when suturing isn’t used?
A: There are scars whether stitches are employed or not, but they can often be treated in the future should they bother the patients. Oftentimes, they are hidden, so no one sees them in the first place.
Points To Remember
The dry technique, with general anesthetic and no injected fluids, had negative effects and is no longer performed.
The wet technique uses injected fluids and is quite safe.
Tumescent liposuction uses injected fluids that cause tissues to swell and allow patients to remain awake through the procedure.
Tumescent anesthetic combines lidocaine to numb and epinephrine (adrenaline) to constrict arteries and minimize bleeding.
Ultrasonic liposuction heats and liquefies fat. The internal form requires special surgical skills; the external form may be used to liquefy fat ahead of treatment with tumescent liposuction.
Surgeons can remove fat with syringes or with machine-powered cannulas.
Powered liposuction uses a high-powered cannula that moves back and forth to create fat removal faster and easier.
High-volume liposuction, with removal greater than 4 or 5 5 liters of fat at one session, is not recommended.
Different forms of sedation are available, administered by mouth or by injection.
Cannulas can be found in different sizes and leave different size insertion openings.
Some surgeons allow insertions sites to drain, while others sew them up with sutures.
