Liposuction has been one of the most popular and top performed cosmetic procedures and one of the most effective body contouring procedures available today. Over the years, the procedure has become more advanced and less invasive, resulting in minimal risk and reduced discomfort and downtime.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Mazen Arafeh will explain all aspects of the liposuction procedure in detail. While the approach and technique will vary from one patient to another, most liposuction surgeries will have the same basic outline.
Dr. Mazen Arafeh provides liposuction and various other plastic surgery procedures to patients in Dubai at La Mar Clinics.
Step 1 – Anesthesia
Liposuction cosmetic surgery can be performed using general or local anesthesia. General anesthesia will be administered either in gaseous or injection form and will place the patient under sleep throughout the procedure. Local anesthesia, on the other hand, will only numb the specific area of the body to be treated, and the patient will remain conscious during the surgery.
Step 2 – The incision
Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions. Once the patient has been placed under anesthesia, Dr. Mazen Arafeh will create small incisions in targeted areas of the body to remove excess fat tissue. The incisions are usually minor, ranging from a quarter to a third of an inch.
Step 3 – Removing the Fat
After the incision, a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.
Step 4 -Closing the Incisions
After the liposuction procedure is completed, Dr. Mazen Arafeh will close the incisions with removable or dissolvable sutures. Drainage tubes may be placed beneath the skin for a few days to collect excess fluid and minimize the risk of infection. Sutures and drains will usually be removed in about a week to 10 days.
