Liposuction in Iran
Liposuction in Iran is among the most popular common plastic surgeries for both Iranians and health tourists. Liposuction is in fact popular around the globe and there is a good reason for that. One of the best techniques to lose weight is this cosmetic surgery that it is simple, risk-free, and gives satisfying everlasting results. As you may know, you can have liposuction on many parts of the body with fatty deposits, such as the abdomen (stomach), calves, and even neck and face.
How does liposuction work?
Liposuction surgery is carried out by a plastic surgeon and under general anesthesia and that normally there is no need for hospitalization. In this procedure (Tumescent liposuction, which is the last generation of this procedure), very small incisions are made through which tubes known as cannulas suction out the fat. Although this is a simple surgery, it goes without saying that the plastic should be experienced enough to carry out this procedure.
In some cases, it is possible to get local anesthesia and therefore the patient can go home after the surgery.
Who can benefit from this procedure?
Ordinarily, the plastic surgeon or the dermatological surgeon would recommend liposuction when the fat deposits are resistant to sports and diet. Then, any person wishing to have a better-shaped and contoured body can benefit from this plastic surgery. Although you should consider that even after liposuction, gaining weight can lead to excess fat deposits again and that liposuction would not remove cellulite or stretch marks. Liposuction also is not recommended for people with obesity. The common prerequisites for this plastic surgery are:
- People over 18 years old
- Good health condition and elastic skin
- Without heart disease, diabetes, or immune system problems
Liposuction or tummy tuck?
Stomach liposuction can be combined with another procedure called a tummy tuck. Tummy tuck as the name suggests is intended to get excess fat and skin from the stomach. The difference between stomach liposuction and a tummy tuck is that by a tummy tuck procedure the stomach skin gets lifted and tightened, but it is suitable for a smaller volume of fat deposits. The decision for either procedure will be decided by the plastic surgeon.
