Must Know

It is everyone’s desire to pursue a graceful curve. However, the determinants of the body curve, besides the amount and location of fat, also include skeletal makeup, muscle size, and skin tightness.

Liposuction is currently the most direct and effective way to improve the body curve. Many people are at a lost when it comes to liposuction, unsure of what is right for them due to their inadequate knowledge about the liposuction process and general anesthesia as well as the various postoperative complications and problems (e.g. unevenness). In fact, surgical risks can be minimized with the right specialist.


♦ Knowledge About Fat

Fat is present in the subcutaneous tissue. Fat is divided into superficial subcutaneous and deep subcutaneous fat. Superficial subcutaneous fat is distributed in the thighs and arms; deep subcutaneous fat is distributed in the abdomen, waist, hips, and thighs. The deep subcutaneous fat is thicker and more obvious, the part that concerns most people.

The body fat increases from birth until the age of 30. After the fat cells reach a certain number, they stop proliferating. The cells that increase thereafter are increases in volume, rather than in number. Naturally, fat cells do not grow back in number after liposuction. With proper diet and exercise after liposuction is completed, the end result can be better maintained. However, although excessive eating after surgery will not change the number of fat cells, overeating will lead to a greater fat cell volume”, looking “fat” again.


♦What is Liposuction?

To put it simply, liposuction is to remove fat, mainly stubborn fat that cannot be removed through diet and exercise therapy. Through vacuum suction at a negative pressure, local excess fat is removed. However, liposuction is not the same as weight-loss surgery. If you have an obesity problem, the best thing to do is to consult a specialist to determine the problem.

 ♦Body Sculpture

Body Sculpture- Excess body fat is removed from the body to help restore the body’s aesthetics. In addition, strict diet, strenuous fitness training, lowered fat metabolism, increased fatty acids, elevated triglycerides, and reduced insulin activity should be avoided to greatly reduce diabetes, myocardial infarction, stroke, and other life-threatening diseases.


♦Body Sculpture Precautions

Before surgery, a professional medical professional should be consulted for assessment. One week prior to surgery, discontinue fish oil, aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo, fungus, Ginseng, and other health supplements. Make sure a medical professional informs you about the preoperative precautions before surgery.


♦Body Sculpture Postoperative Precautions

1.The postoperative surgical wound is small. The wound should not be in contact with water and should be kept dry and clean. The surgical suture is removed after about seven days.

2.After surgery, a part of the peripheral nerves may be damaged during liposuction, resulting in skin insensitivity after surgery and other mild complications such as swelling and bruises. These phenomena will gradually subside with time. The recovery period is about 3-6 months. Comply with postoperative health education provided by medical professionals. In addition, regular medication should be taken to alleviate postoperative discomfort and promote swelling reduction and speed up body sculpting.

3.A corsage should immediately be worn after surgery. The pressurized corsage can stop bleeding and promote tissue repair. It can also reduce bleeding and misplaced tissue adhesion. After about three months, the liposuction site will have stabilized, and the result will be obvious. More obvious results can be achieved if the corsage continues to be worn for six months.
