What should I expect when getting Liposuction?
Your surgeon will inform you about your procedure and will generally put marks around the area of the operation that is going to be operated on with a marker for visual aid. You will be visited by an anesthetist that will explain all the details about the anesthetic that relates to your surgical operation. The amount of anesthetic will mainly depend on the patients’ overall medical history. If the treatment is performed on a smaller scale, then a local anesthetic with mild sedation can be utilized during the surgery. But, if the treatment is performed on a larger scale, a general anesthetic may be advised. Here, surgeons’ orders will be followed and the use of type anesthetic will differ patient by patient.
The procedure will kick start with an injection of ‘’tumescent saline’’. This helps the patient to lose the sensation during surgery and break down fat cells, as well as to decrease the level of bleeding to the minimum without feeling pain during surgery. Afterwards, with the assistance of an incision, a small probe is inserted. It assists with the emission of ultrasound waves to break down and liquefy fat cells for easy removal from the body part. The fat which is in liquefied form is removed out through a small needle. Keep in mind that Vaser liposuction is categorized as the least invasive operation when compared with other types of liposuction until today.
The duration of your VASER liposuction procedure can vary from one hour to several hours depending on the extent. After the surgery is finalized, you will be taken to a recovery room so that your body will be free of the effects of the sedation or anesthetic given before the surgery. After your liposuction,you will be provided medication for pain management.
