Liposuction, a popular cosmetic surgical procedure, involves the removal of excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body to improve its contours and proportions. Dr. Marco Faria Correa, a renowned surgeon in Singapore, offers this procedure to individuals seeking a more refined and sculpted physique.

Benefits of Liposuction

Body contouring and reshaping: Liposuction effectively targets and removes unwanted fat, resulting in a more toned and defined silhouette.

Improved self-confidence and body image: Achieving the desired body shape can enhance one’s self-esteem and overall satisfaction with their appearance.

Reduction of fat in stubborn areas: Even with diet and exercise, certain areas of the body can retain fat. Liposuction addresses these stubborn regions, providing a more balanced look.

The Liposuction Procedure

Pre-procedure preparations

Before undergoing liposuction, patients are required to attend a consultation with Dr. Marco. During this session:

  • A comprehensive medical history is taken to identify any potential contraindications.
  • Physical examinations are conducted to assess the areas of fat accumulation and skin elasticity.
  • Patients are informed about the expected outcomes, potential risks, and the recovery process.
  • Instructions are provided regarding dietary restrictions, cessation of smoking, and avoiding certain medications, such as blood thinners, to reduce the risk of complications.
The surgical process explained step-by-step

Anaesthesia: Depending on the extent of the procedure and the patient’s preference, either local or general anaesthesia is administered. This ensures that the patient is comfortable and pain-free during the surgery.

Incision: Small, inconspicuous incisions are made in the predetermined areas where fat is to be removed.

Fat removal: A thin, hollow tube called a cannula is inserted through the incisions. The cannula is moved back and forth to break up the fat cells, which are then suctioned out using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.

Fluid replacement: During the procedure, a significant amount of fluid can be lost along with the fat. To prevent shock, patients might receive replacement fluids intravenously.

Closing the incisions: Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, the incisions are closed using sutures. In some cases, small drains might be placed in the incisions to remove any excess blood or fluid.

Post-procedure care and recovery

Immediate aftercare: After the procedure, patients are taken to a recovery area where they are closely monitored. Compression garments or elastic bandages may be placed over the treated areas to control swelling and support the affected tissues as they heal.

Recovery guidelines: Patients are usually advised to take a few days off work and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. Follow Dr. Marco’s post-operative instructions, which include care of the surgical site, medications to apply or take orally, and when to schedule follow-up appointments.

Managing side effects: Some swelling, bruising, and discomfort are expected after the procedure. These side effects are temporary and can be managed with prescribed pain medications and by following post-operative care instructions.

Long-term results: The final results of liposuction become apparent once the swelling subsides, which can take several weeks. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Marco ensure that the healing process is on track and that the desired results are achieved.

Safety and Risks

Common side effects

Swelling: Post-operative swelling is a natural response and can last for several weeks. Wearing compression garments can help reduce swelling and shape the treated area.

Bruising: Bruises may appear in the treated areas and can take a few weeks to fade. The severity of bruising varies among individuals.

Pain and discomfort: Patients may experience pain or discomfort in the treated areas, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications.

Numbness: Temporary numbness or altered sensation in the treated area is common and usually resolves within a few weeks.

Potential complications

Infection: While rare, infections can occur after liposuction. Keep the incision sites clean and follow post-operative care instructions to reduce this risk.

Scarring: Small scars may form at the incision sites. However, these are typically inconspicuous and fade over time.

Irregular contours: Uneven fat removal or poor skin elasticity can lead to bumpy or wavy skin appearances. In some cases, additional procedures may be required to correct this.

Fluid accumulation: Sometimes, temporary pockets of fluid, known as seromas, can form under the skin. These may need to be drained by a doctor.

Thermal burn or heat injury: If using techniques like laser-assisted or ultrasound-assisted liposuction, there’s a risk of thermal burns or heat injuries from the device.

Anaesthesia risks: As with any procedure that requires anaesthesia, there’s a risk of complications such as allergic reactions or breathing difficulties.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    How long has Dr. Marco been performing liposuction procedures in Singapore?

    Dr. Marco has been a leading figure in the field of cosmetic surgery in Singapore for several years, with extensive experience in liposuction and other procedures.

    Are there any specific medical conditions that may prevent someone from undergoing liposuction?

    Certain medical conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, or a weakened immune system, may increase the risks associated with liposuction. Discuss your medical history with Dr. Marco during the consultation.

    How does liposuction by Dr. Marco compare to non-surgical fat reduction methods?

    While non-surgical fat reduction methods can help reduce fat, liposuction offers more precise and significant results. The best method for you will depend on your goals and individual circumstances.

    What is the typical downtime after undergoing liposuction with Dr. Marco?

    The recovery period can vary based on the extent of the procedure and individual factors. Most patients can return to light activities within a few days, but follow Dr. Marco’s post-operative care instructions.

    Can liposuction treat cellulite?

    Liposuction is primarily designed to remove excess fat. While it may improve the appearance of cellulite to some extent, it’s not a specific treatment for cellulite.

    Are the results of liposuction permanent?

    While liposuction permanently removes fat cells from the treated area, maintain a stable weight to ensure long-lasting results. Significant weight gain can lead to the enlargement of remaining fat cells.
