Many of us have stubborn pockets of fat on our hips, thighs, arms and even around our abdomen, that simply won’t shift through diet or exercise.
Dr Hugo Pin is one of only a few doctors that utilises a modern treatment called Tumescent Liposuction, or Liposculpture as it is generally referred to.
Tumescent Liposuction is a minimally invasive liposuction procedure which removes fat and sculpts the body aimed to enhance your body’s contour, definition and physique.
It is one of the latest and most advanced body shaping treatments and is truly the least invasive liposuction treatment available.
Advantages of Tumescent Liposuction:
– The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic
– Liposculpture is minimally invasive, causing no damage to other body tissues
– There is minimal risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort
– You can return to work within 2 days and resume exercise within a week
Tumescent Liposuction is the brainchild of Dr. Jeffrey Klein, an American Dermatologist who wanted to achieve excellent cosmetic results but with a rapid post-operative return to normal activities.
MicroLipo gets its name from the tiny size of the cannulas used to extract the fat, the smallest of which is just 0.9mm wide and the largest of which is 3mm.
The technique can remove up to 2.5 litres of fat. The small size of the cannulas is particularly good for targeting smaller body areas such as: Bingo wings – Outer or Inner thighs – Knees – Flanks – Abdomen – Male Chest (Man boobs or Moobs)
There are some small body parts, such as the flanks (love handles) and bingo wings that store pockets of fat that cannot be reduced through diet or exercise. Some women may also store substantial amounts of fat tissue in their upper thighs, resulting in a disproportionate body shape.
A very diluted local anaesthesia is injected into the fat causing the targeted areas to become swollen and firm. This swelling helps separate the fat cells from the other surrounding tissue. The fat is then removed using microcannulas with a diameter less than 3 millimetres.
Traditional liposuction cannulas have a larger diameter and remove fat rather quickly, which increases the risk of irregularities and depressions in the skin. The use of microcannulas, on the other hand, allows smoother and more uniform results.
You will notice a dramatic change to your shape and outline immediately after the procedure. However, real results will begin to appear within 3-4 weeks post procedure.
A healthy lifestyle paired with good nutrition and exercise will maintain your results. If you gain any weight, it will affect the surrounding areas.
Recovery / Downtime
Liposculpture involves minimal downtime and you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately. Many patients return to work within 48 hours and resume their typical exercise schedule within 7 days. The small incisions made during the procedure will not require stitches.
