Liposuction has been safely performed for decades to help people get rid of stubborn and unwanted body fat. There are minimal risks with the procedure, and the fat is removed permanently, with the results being noticed nearly right after the surgery.
During a surgical procedure under general anesthesia, your surgeon inserts a small cannula through a tiny incision near the treatment area. The cannula then prepares the targeted fat cells before they are removed using suction.
Although liposuction can remove a significant amount of body fat, there is a limit to how much can be removed without causing unwanted and potentially harmful side effects. Body fat that accumulates near the surface of the skin, especially around the abdomen, may keep you from achieving the more sculpted and toned look you desire.
However, some body fat is required to maintain normal and healthy metabolic processes. If too much body fat is removed at one time, it can cause a shock to your body functions as there is no gradual adjustment to the difference.
One of the most severe risks of the removal of too much body fat is the rapid removal of a significant amount of water that is stored within the fat cells. Along with this change in the amount of water, the significant decrease in volume can cause your body to fill the area with fluid and cause respiratory issues.
Along with the health and medical impacts, removing too much body fat in a single liposuction procedure can also create the appearance of slack or sagging skin previously stretched around the body fat. Since liposuction does little to address this skin, this can be challenging for some patients.
Despite these risks, liposuction is a very safe procedure, and under the skilled hands and expertise of the surgeons at UMass Memorial Cosmetic Surgery Center in Worcester, MA, it can provide exceptional results.
