Liposuction in Mumbai

Liposuction is the most commonly performed Cosmetic surgery in the world. As the name implies, it means sucking out the fat from the body. Interestingly, it is the only permanent method of removal of fat from the body. It is a surgical procedure, with a very small cut from which the fat gets sucked out through special instruments. There are various techniques of liposuction, including the very standard Tumescent technique, Ultrasonic liposuction which is ultrasound assisted and other recent variations like Body jet liposuction and Smart Lipo. The incision for Liposuction is very small (3-10 mm) and are barely visible. Furthermore, every effort is made to see that these cuts are hidden. But liposuction cost in Mumbai varies clinic by clinic. We at La Transformatione provide liposuction in Mumbai at a reasonable price.

Surgical Liposuction Techniques:
The theory about liposuction, and that it is considered a permanent method for removal of fat is as follows. In our body, the number of fat cells becomes constant as we become adult, around 18 to 20 yrs of age. After that, the weight gain is there due to increase in the size of the fat cells rather than the number of fat cells. When the calorie intake is more than what is exhausted by the means of exercise or activity, there is a positive calorie balance in the body. These calories are stored in the fat cells. Since the number of fat cells does not increase, the size of the fat cells increases in size. If we lose the calories, the size of fat cells decrease. By means of Liposuction, we actually take out the fat cells by sucking them out after breaking them. This means that the fat cells reduce to the extent of 80 to 90%, which gives reduced shape. The remaining cells usually do not grow unless there is a hormonal problem, or external usage of steroids or pregnancy or any extraordinary circumstance. The skin over the area shrinks to a variable level depending on the skin elasticity of the person. In a young person, the shrinkage is considerable but in older people, the shrinkage may be less. It is because of this reason liposuction is considered as a PERMANENT METHOD FOR FAT REDUCTION.

The only prerequisite for undergoing liposuction is good skin elasticity. If the skin elasticity is not good, it is advisable to have a skin tucking procedure simultaneously or later. It so thus means that Liposuction can be done of any external part of the body although the risks and benefits of the same may differ from area to area. The common areas where liposuction is done is the abdomen, love handles, back, chest(in case of males), back, arms, lateral chest area, thighs, calf, double chin, and jaw. Therefore we advise you to consult with one of the best liposuction clinics in Mumbai who can provide easy and comfortable liposuction surgery as per their liposuction cost in Mumbai. You can consult with us to get more information on liposuction techniques as we one of the excellent liposuction clinics in Mumbai.

Tumescent Lipo - When liposuction procedure started many decades back, there was a lot of blood loss because along with fat blood also used to leak. This restricted the amount of fat that could be sucked out at one time and was also not very safe. Tumescent technique was then devised in which first a solution of medicines was injected in the desired area from where the fat needs to be sucked. This medicinal solution constricts the blood vessels temporarily so that the blood loss is minimal or negligible. The solution also has a local anaesthetic agent which decreases the post-operative pain. This is the time-tested technique of liposuction surgery. All techniques use infiltration to decrease the blood loss. In the classic method by which majority of the surgeon use, the fat cells are broken mechanically while the solution is infiltrated. The fat is then sucked out. Most of the doctors still prefer this method as their go-to technique of liposuction. If you wish to do liposuction in Mumbai, don’t forget to ask our doctors about Tumescent liposuction techniques.

Ultrasonic Liposuction - Ultrasonic Liposuction - The fat cells in Ultrasonic liposuction surgery are broken down using ultrasound waves. The Ultrasound beams emitted from the specialized instruments breaks the fat cells preserving the blood vessels and nerves ( Lipo Selection). These are then sucked out. Liposuction clinics provide this type of surgery at a distinct liposuction cost in Mumbai. You should consult with them accordingly.

Vaser - VASER liposuction is a form of Ultrasonic Liposuction.

Smart Lipo- Involves laser-assisted fat breakage and removal through a small cannula with an Nd:Yag laser placed inside.

Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) – In this liposuction technique, a power-assisted cannula is used to remove the unwanted fat cell thus requiring very less manual force. The cannula moves back and forth rapidly, breaking the fat mechanically. Unlike ultrasonic or LASER assisted liposuction, there is no heat generated in this procedure and hence the surrounding tissues are not harmed. This method leads to more flattering contours by re-sculpting your body. You should consult with any professional liposuction doctor before opting for such kind of liposuction in Mumbai.

Body Jet Liposuction : In Body jet liposuction, water jet is used to break the fat cells which are sucked.

HOW TO CHOOSE WHICH TYPE OF LIPOSUCTION IS BETTER ? : Majority of the surgeons still use the normal classic Tumescent liposuction. The fact that not everyone uses VASER, BODY JET or SMART LIPO means that still not the majority of the surgeons are convinced about the claims made by the manufacturing companies about the benefits of these machines. One fact definitely remains that these techniques are way more costly than the Classic Liposuction, the difference if at all may only be minor and not significant.

At La transformatione we have Ultrasonic as well as Classic and Power assisted liposuction. The choice of the type depends on the patients and it would argue well to discuss about it during the consultation. You can feel free to share your desires and requirements in consultation with us with regards to your liposuction in Mumbai. Our liposuction cost in Mumbai is reasonable.

MEGA LIPOSUCTION : Traditionally, 10% of your body weight in litres is the safe amount of LIPOASPIRATE. It means that if you weigh 75 kgs, 7.5 litres of fat plus fluid (Lipoaspirate) can be safely taken out. Out of these 7.5 litres, the actual fat would be around 5 litres. 5 litres would mean a weight loss of about 4 kgs. And this too will be evident after about 2 months when the swelling has subsided. SO LIPOSUCTION IS ONLY CONSIDERED AS A RESHAPING PROCEDURE AND NOT WEIGHT REDUCTION PROCEDURE. Mega liposuction involves sucking out around 18 to 20 litres of fat thereby inducing significant weight loss. But such a procedure requires proper counseling regarding the possible negative aspects of such a massive endeavor. There are definitely more than the normal risk involved in such a procedure of liposuction Mumbai and so this procedure is not very common.
Since there are safer procedures now available for massive weight loss like bariatric surgery, mega liposuction is not very popular now..

RECOVERY AFTER LIPOSUCTION : One of the most important discussions which need to be done during the consultation of Liposuction is the recovery. In Liposuction, the cuts are very small on the body but internally, there is a surgical trauma when fat is removed. This results in swelling and the swelling may last for about 6 to 10 weeks during which period massages may be required. The final result is visible only in about 2 to 3 months, so one has to have the patience for that much time. Pressure garments are required to be worn for about 4 - 6 weeks. One can resume his/her duties after a couple of days. Swelling& bruises require about a month to go.

Liposuction can be done as Outpatient surgery, but if more than 4 to 5 litres of fat is aspirated, it is better to stay in the hospital.

Time Required for Liposuction: The time required for liposuction varies from an hour to a couple of hours, depending upon the area being treated, the technique used and the amount of fat to be removed.

Side Effects of Liposuction:As in case of any surgery, some temporary bruising, swelling, fluid discharge, discomfort, numbness, and limited mobility can be seen as side effects. Very rarely fat embolism or pulmonary embolism may happen.

Durability of results after Liposuction As the number of fat cells in the body is constant (only the size increase with obesity), when a proportion of fat cells is removed, it is permanently lost and so liposuction results are considered permanent, but the behaviour of the patient also is important as the remaining cells can grow in size under certain circumstances.

Discomfort is there after Liposuction Some amount of discomfort or mild pain can be experienced after the surgery, which is taken care of by the doctor prescribed medication. Medicines will make you feel better. The first couple of days are the ones where the maximum effort for mobilization has to be done. Once that is done even to a reasonable amount, the further recovery is fast. Massage: Experience has shown that massage of the operated site after 7 to 10 days time helps in reducing the swelling fast and the final outcome is better. Once a day massage either at home or at the Clinic will help you.

Anaesthesia for Liposuction Liposuction is done in spinal, general or local anaesthesia with sedation.

Which other procedures can be combined with Liposuction? Breast augmentation, fat transfer, Breast reduction or breast lift procedures can be combined with liposuction. If Tummy tuck is done, Limited liposuction is advised. (see the write up of Tummy Tuck)

MEDICAL LIPOSCULPTURING : Various nonsurgical techniques for removal of fat are there in the market. BUT THEY ARE ALL AN EYEWASH! None of them are effective and definitely not for more than 200 to 300 cc of fat. These techniques are at best for very small lumps or bumps, which is also doubtful.

WORDS OF WISDOM: Consider Liposuction as a reshaping procedure and not a weight loss procedure. Play it safe! It is better to be on the conservative side, less than about 6 litres or so of Lipoaspirate. Most complications occur due to a large volume of Liposuction leading to dehydration.

1. 1st Consultation : Get a detailed consultation. Clarify all your doubts. Read about the process a bit (not too much!) and discuss in detail. Make sure that you have some if not all the idea as to what exactly are you looking for. Tell the doctor about any previous surgery or illness or any sort of allergies.
2. Repeat Consultation : Go back after the first consultation and think. Make a list of things to clarify and understand and meet the doctor or the team again.
3. Expectation of results: Please be doubly sure as to what result you are expecting and you and your doctors are in sync and on the same page. This will make things easy for you in the postoperative period. It is better to have realistic expectations as there are various limitations of your body as well as of the surgery.
4. Measurements : Many times some measurements are required. Ask if any measurement of your body or for pressure garment etc is required.
5. Investigations : Most surgeries require some investigations and these must be done at a good laboratory. It is in your best interest that you get the investigations done as advised because the decision to do the surgery will depend on them.
6. Understanding the Plan : Plastic surgery is an innovative branch of surgery where meticulous planning is very important. Both the patient and the doctor must be at comfort with the plan. It may take a couple of consultation for the best plan to be finalized for a complicated surgery.
7. Finalise the hospital.
8. Schedule the date of surgery and advance payment or full payment : Please make sure that the full procedure of payment is understood by you and there are no hidden costs. If there are some overheads, you should have an idea regarding them. Also, note that some services of Cosmetic surgeries are taxable by the Government and you may have to pay extra for them.
9. Understand the preoperative instructions well like being empty stomach before surgery, shaving etc.
10. Photography : preoperative and postoperative photography helps in judging the results objectively and is helpful for you as well as the doctors and also removes the scope of ambiguity.
11. Report for surgery on time or a little before that so that you are relaxed. ( better if accompanied by an attendant).
