Facts About Fats You Probably Don’t Know

Despite its bad rep, Liposuction is still the most performed operation in the world. Why? Because fat cells removed by Liposuction stay removed. That means any part of the body that has had liposuction will continue to maintain the resulting number of fat cells. Research shows that fat cells in the human body cannot be reproduced past late adolescence. Your fat cell count stays the same for the rest of your life.

When people “lose weight” or reduce their body fat through conventional means such as dieting, what really happens is a decrease in the amount of fat in the fat cells of our bodies. The fat cells are still there, albeit “hungry” and “deprived”, unless of course you remove them via Liposuction, in which case they’ll be gone forever*!

*Bear in mind there are still fat cells in our bodies that have the potential to grow.

Why Suck When You Can Sculpt? Vibroliposculpture – More than just Permanent Fat Removal

Liposuction was first performed in 1980. Then, surgeons used large cannulas which could only remove deep fat, with poor aesthetic results.

Since then, Liposuction techniques have improved dramatically. Emphasis is now placed on body reshaping and sculpting rather than just removing excess fat; leading to the development of liposculpture, a procedure that demands a keen eye for beauty.

At SL Clinic, the vibroliposculpture method is used, now considered the most modern, efficient, and least traumatic technique in liposuction.

“Vibro” in vibroliposculpture simply means “vibrate”. The vibroliposculpture machine allows the surgeon to do better work, with less fatigue and gives a smoother, more naturally sculpted result.

Sculpt and shape your body and face

Vibroliposculpture allows treating even sensitive areas with great precision:
➢ Double chin
➢ Neck – back of the neck, also called Buffalo Hump
➢ Chest – usually for male boobs
➢ Arms – flabby areas on the arm
➢ Mid section – tummy, love handles and flanks
➢ Legs – inner/outer thighs, around the knees, calves and ankles
➢ Buttocks
➢ Nether region – above the pubic bone
➢ And other areas which should be discussed with the doctor

Safety

The decision to have liposuction is extremely personal and you must decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the following risks and potential complications are acceptable:

❖ Uneven contours/asymmetry, rippling or loose skin
❖ Irregular pigmentation or skin discolouration
❖ Unfavourable scarring
❖ Anaesthesia risks
❖ Bleeding (hematoma)
❖ Pain, which may persist
❖ Damage to deeper structures such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles, lungs, and abdominal organs
❖ Poor wound healing
❖ Swelling and fluid accumulation
❖ Excessive fluid loss
❖ Fat and/or blood clots
❖ Infection
❖ Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications
❖ Possibility of revision surgery

FAQ

Vibroliposculpture, or in essence Liposuction, is a cosmetic procedure where fat is drawn from one or various parts of the body.

The word “vibro” simply refers to the low-frequency vibrations of the machine which allows the surgeon to perform the procedure with lowered fatigue and trauma, while “liposculpture” refers to the removal of fat from the body in such a way that achieves a naturally sculpted and aesthetically pleasing result.

At SL Clinic, Vibroliposculpture is performed under Tumescent Anaesthesia, which also removes bleeding associated with traditional surgery. This means enhanced safety for the patient.

Vibroliposculpture risks are few and minimal. The doctor has a track record of hundreds of cases, with zero major complications. But as is the case of all cosmetic treatments, vibroliposculpture carries risks along with benefits, although they are rare:

❖ Uneven contours/asymmetry, rippling or loose skin
❖ Irregular pigmentation or skin discolouration
❖ Unfavourable scarring
❖ Anaesthesia risks
❖ Bleeding (hematoma)
❖ Pain, which may persist
❖ Damage to deeper structures such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles, lungs, and abdominal organs
❖ Poor wound healing
❖ Swelling and fluid accumulation
❖ Excessive fluid loss
❖ Fat and/or blood clots
❖ Infection
❖ Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications
❖ Possibility of revision surgery

Your improved body contour will be apparent when the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside.

Usually, no other treatment is required after a Liposuction surgery. If your case is very large, you may require lymph drainage treatments, which can be done by a physiotherapist one week post-surgery.

3 to 6 months after surgery is the time for your post-operation review. This is when we can compare the new you with the old you via photo records.

The time taken for a liposuction procedure will depend on the area(s) involved. On average, it can take 1 – 3 hours to complete.

Upon consultation and assessment at our clinic, the procedure proper is fixed at a later date and time.

Liposuction can make your localised collection(s) of fat disappear indefinitely. With continued practice of a sensible diet and exercise routine, the loss of excess fatty tissue can be permanently maintained. However, if unmindful of one’s lifestyle habits, substantial weight gain can alter an otherwise permanent result.

At SL Clinic, liposuction is performed under Tumescent Anaesthesia, a technique for delivery of local anaesthesia. This means you will be awake for the entire procedure, but not feel any pain. Post-procedure discomfort should only be short-term and can usually be managed with oral pain medication.

discomfort being largely manageable. Wounds are usually closed in 2 days, while bruising lasts no more than 3 weeks and swelling can disappear after 3 weeks.

Most patients are encouraged to move about. However, it is advisable to avoid stressful and strenuous activities for at least 4 to 6 weeks. You will also be required to wear compression garments for 3 to 6 weeks.

Vibroliposculpture is safe for most healthy adults. It is best indicated for the treatment of Lipodysmorphia (localised collection of fat under the skin); colloquially known as Stubborn Fat. This is completely different from people who are Overweight, Obese, or Morbidly Obese. Thin people can also suffer from Lipodysmorphia!

As with all medical procedures, you should be sure to disclose all of your medical history and current habits such as smoking and use of blood-thinners, medications, birth control pills, or supplements.

Liposuction is unsuitable in the following circumstances:

  • Pregnant, may be pregnant, lactating, or if you are of child-bearing age with a positive pregnancy test before treatment
  • Have an existing heart condition or high blood pressure
  • Bleeding or blood clotting disorders (coagulopathy)
  • Active bacterial or viral infection
  • On blood thinning medication
  • Morbidly obese (100% or over of Ideal Body Weight)

Pre-care: Ensure that you’re in a good state of health and not recovering from a bacterial or viral infection. Avoid the use of blood thinners such as ibuprofen and aspirin for two weeks before the procedure. Do not eat 4 to 6 hours prior to the procedure. Arrange for someone to accompany you after surgery; you will not be able to drive.

Post-care: After surgery you will leak solution from the incision sites for up to 48 hours. This is not bleeding, it is simply tinged with blood and is normal. A plastic sheet can be provided, but clean towels should be prepared.
