Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure used to reshape targeted parts of your body by removing excess fat deposits.
If you have unwanted body fat in specific areas that does not respond to eating well and exercising frequently, you may want to remove it for a more desirable shape. Dr. Naseebah, a plastic surgeon in Dubai, is the surgeon you can rely on to address this issue with liposuction because she knows how important it is to have confidence in your appearance. Request a consultation with Dr. Naseebah if you are considering getting liposuction to learn more about the procedure.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction removes excess fat deposits using a suction technique to reshape specific parts of your body. This procedure can be performed on the hips, flanks, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, calves, ankles, back, and neck. It can also be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as breast reductions, breast lifts, and tummy tucks. However, liposuction is ineffective for treating cellulite dimpling, stretch marks, and other skin abnormalities.
During the procedure, Dr. Naseebah makes a small incision in the skin and inserts a thin, hollow tube (called a cannula) into the incision. The excess fat beneath the skin is carefully loosened with the cannula that uses ultrasonic energy or high-intensity laser light and is then removed with a special vacuum or suction device attached to the cannula. The suction tube will be moved back and forth to loosen and suck out fat in the treatment area to help you achieve your ideal figure.

Suitable Candidates For Liposuction
Liposuction may be the solution for you if you are concerned about excess fat deposits on any part of your body that don’t go away with diet or exercise. Suitable candidates include those who are in good overall health, do not smoke, and have firm, elastic skin.
During your consultation, Dr. Naseebah will review your medical history and examine the parts of your body that will be treated. She will then discuss your surgical options and explain the procedure and potential risks. The doctor will also provide pre-operative instructions, such as refraining from taking certain medications and smoking before and after surgery.
You may experience minor swelling for a few days following liposuction, but Dr. Naseebah will prescribe some medications to manage any discomfort. The doctor may give you a compression garment to wear for a few days to speed up the recovery process. You will have to wait a few days to go back to work and a few weeks to resume strenuous activities.
You will notice your enhanced body contour once the swelling subsides, but it may take a couple of months to see the complete result. The complete results may take between 1-3 months to appear, depending on how much fat is removed. If you keep your weight stable by exercising regularly and eating healthy, your new slimmer appearance will be permanent.
