What is liposuction surgery, and how does it work?

How Modern Liposuction Surgery Can Help You Remove Body Fat | by Sheetal  Goswami | Medium

Liposuction, clinically known as lipoplasty, lipectomy, liposculpture suction, or simply lipo, is a common type of cosmetic surgery. The main aim of this surgery is to break up and suck fat out of the body. The most common body parts where liposuction may be done include abdomen, thighs, buttocks, chin, an upper arm portion, calves, and back. Liposuction is generally used to improve the overall appearance. It generally does not give any health benefits. With a regular diet plan, the same results can be achieved. However, if lifestyle changes do not bring the desired results, liposuction may be done as a corrective measure. Liposuction basically reduces the number of fat cells in the surgical area.

What are the conditions where lipoplasty may help?

Though liposuction is generally done for cosmetic purposes, many conditions can be helped by this particular surgery. Lymphedema is one of the most common conditions where lipoplasty may be required. In the case of lymphedema, excessive fluid gets stored in the tissues causing swelling and pain. Liposuction can help with these conditions. Apart from this, lipoplasty is also helpful for gynecomastia, where fat accumulates under a man’s breast. Lipodystrophy syndrome can also be corrected by liposuction therapy. Lipomas are another example where liposuction can help. Many different techniques are there which can be used in liposuction surgery. Like for instance, tumescent liposuction, fry liposuction, Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), power-assisted liposuction or laser-assisted lipoplasty, etc. can be used in liposuction surgery. However, the point that one needs to note here is that liposuction surgery is a means to reduce fatty cells, but it is in no way the treatment of obesity.
