Repeated pregnancies, a series of diets, or even heredity are all the causes of the presence of a small, unsightly fat on your belly. It's insensitive to dieting or sports, and you can't get rid of it. A cosmetic surgery procedure is then required to remove it effectively.
What is belly liposuction?
Belly liposuction is a method that enables extra fat to be sucked from the belly. This cosmetic surgery is used to treat excess fat cells without excess skin. It is also one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures in the world.
In the case of a small stomach with no fat to extract, gentle liposuction is an alternative to surgery.
However, this technique is not appropriate for people who want to get rid of visceral fat. Thus, it is not a cure for obesity, but a procedure to restore a harmonious silhouette.
Belly liposuction: how the procedure works.
If you would like to have access to belly liposuction, you need to see your surgeon during the first appointment. During this appointment, your belly and your whole body will be examined.
During the procedure, the surgeon performs liposuction in many stages:
- With a surgical marker, identifies the area to be treated
- Then, after disinfecting the area of the abdomen, inject a solution that liquefies the fat cells and promotes their aspiration.
- Then make small incisions in the crease of the groin, the pubis or the navel.
- A foam cannula with a rounded foam tip linked to an aspirator is then introduced. It sucks the fat deposits with the back and forth motions of your surgeon.
- As soon as the fat is sucked, the surgeon closes the incisions and places a dressing on the scars.
Belly liposuction: anaesthesia, period, hospitalization.
The liposuction of the belly lasts between one and two hours depending on the amount of fat sucked by the practitioner.
General anaesthesia is normally administered during this process. It is however possible to resort to local anaesthesia. The type of belly liposuction anaesthesia will be determined by mutual agreement between you, the surgeon and the anaesthesiologist.
Hospitalization for belly liposuction is, most often, not necessary. However, if other interventions are done at the same time as liposuction, it is possible to remain overnight in the clinic.
Results: Have a flat belly
The first results would be visible soon after the liposuction of the belly. Your silhouette is more harmonious. It's needed to wait three months to see the final results. This is when the oedema and the bruises fade. The skin adapts to the new volume of the abdomen and then gradually retracts.
You will have to see the surgeon again for regular check-ups, which will help you to evaluate the progress of your belly liposuction. If they find a result that is not desired, they may make certain changes that only require basic interventions. However, a period of around three months between your abdominal liposuction and the correction procedure must be observed.
It will take about 12 months for your scars to disappear and you to enjoy the result as a whole. Nowadays, belly liposuction provides optimal outcomes where the belly is flatter and remodeled.
Belly liposuction produces long-lasting and permanent effects. Indeed, fat cells or adipocytes cannot be reproduced on their own. The result is therefore completely satisfactory and radical. It is necessary to have a healthy lifestyle. Fat cells may travel to other parts of the body and so weight gain after liposuction can become undesirable.
The quality of the liposuction result depends on the elasticity and tone of your skin. If the quality is optimal, the skin will naturally retract after surgery.
