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.
Liposuction in Iran: Types and Methods
Liposuction in Iran has four primary types, including:
Tumescent liposuction is the most common form of liposuction, administered by injecting a large amount of medicated solution into the body parts, then removing the fat from there. There are three components of the liquid: local anesthetic (Lidocaine), a drug that constricts blood vessels (epinephrine), and an intravenous salt solution (IV).
Similar to the previously described procedure, this method uses a liquid to facilitate the removal of excess fat. It is worth pointing out that the fluid equals the amount of fat that is required to be removed.
A surgeon uses ultrasonic techniques to convert fat into liquid. Vacuuming can then be done in this situation. A common application of this procedure is to remove fat from the upper back or from the enlarged male breasts.
Doctors liquefy extra fat with laser energy and remove it through small incisions and tubes. It is mainly used on selected areas of the body like the chin, cheeks, and face. Due to the laser's significant collagen-stimulating properties, this procedure prevents sagging skin.
Known as Lipo Vaser, Vaser liposuction is a new technique that removes excess fat from beneath the skin by breaking it up with a laser beam. Liposuction is chosen for overweight people to lose weight, while Vaser liposuction is carried out for those in excellent physical condition to contour. The fat is gradually loosened and expelled through a Cannula using ultrasound energy. The minimally invasive nature of this procedure enables patients to recover quickly from it.
Legs are most commonly involved in Thigh Liposuction. In this area, procedures may take a little longer and be a little more complicated due to the complex anatomy. Most candidates have loose skin on their upper inner thighs. The most common mistake surgeons make here is to remove so much fat without addressing the problem of thinning skin. The result of inexperienced surgeons in this regard will be loose, hanging skin. Hopefully, Iranian doctors and clinics are well approved among medical centers in the world, and the risk of this surgery with CarefulTrip slims to none.
When you visit a board-certified plastic surgeon for a liposuction consultation, you should discuss your goals, expectations, and any medical conditions you have, such as drug allergies and any medications that you are taking. In order to succeed in this process, prior preparation is crucial. Then, your surgeon will:
- Examine your medical history
- Inquire about any previous surgeries you have had
- Obtain a general health assessment
- Do a thorough physical exam
- Get some lab tests done
- Give nutritional advice
- For your medical history, take photos
- Recommend you give up smoking since tobacco will hamper recovery.
- Ensure you abstain from taking certain medications, such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and supplements containing herbal ingredients.
- Analyze your options
- Provide a treatment plan
- Examine the likely outcomes and problems that may occur
After the surgery, patients are usually able to go home. You can expect the recovery to take about 4-6 weeks. If anyone is going to take care of you during this time, it is better to ask them to do so because you need to devote some time to rest. To control future swelling, you must wear a compression garment for 1 to 2 months after surgery.
However, bruising and swelling shouldn't cause concern since they will gradually go away over a period of several weeks or months, depending on the type of skin you have. It takes most people about two weeks to return to work and resume normal life functions after surgery.
It's not uncommon to see liposuction results immediately, and the scarring is usually almost nonexistent. Since the skin will contract and shrink, it may take up to a year after the procedure to see full results. It is a good thing that the results last forever. After gaining significant weight following surgery, fat will be evenly distributed across all of your body's fat cells.
Consequently, less amount of fat will return to liposuction areas because fewer fat cells are left behind after the procedure. However, liposuction leaves a contour around the surgical site. It is important to adhere to a balanced diet and keep up with exercise after surgery to achieve lasting results.
