There are two types of fat to consider when doing tummy liposuction: subcutaneous and visceral.
Subcutaneous fat is the jiggly, pinchable fat found just beneath the skin. It's generally harmless, but not always appealing. Visceral fat is fat stored in the abdomen. "Skinny-fat" is a term used to describe people with a lot of visceral fat. Not only is it unhealthy, but it's also dangerous. Because visceral fat is stored near your organs, it is more likely to disrupt organ functions, leading to increased insulin resistance (type 2 diabetes), blood pressure, bad cholesterol (LDL), and heart disease and stroke risk.
Tummy liposuction removes subcutaneous fat. Visceral fat is insoluble in water and cannot be suctioned out. Diet and exercise can safely reduce visceral fat.
Visceral fat does not prevent you from having liposuction, but it does affect the results. The patient had liposuction of the abdomen, waist, and hips. The patient was pleased with the visible results. However, visceral fat remains in the tummy , which liposuction cannot remove.
Without an MRI or CAT scan, you can't tell how much visceral fat you have.
Visceral fat makes up about 10% of total body fat. Your visceral fat may start to affect your health if your waist circumference is 40 inches or 35 inches for a man and 35 inches for a woman.
Tummy liposuction does not always require general anaesthesia.
It's true for all body parts, but not always! In fact, some surgeons still prefer general anaesthesia, especially for abdominal surgery. Your plastic surgeon will almost certainly use the tumescent method, which has long been the gold standard for safe and effective liposuction.
Tummy fat is removed by injecting tumescent fluid (saline and epinephrine with sodium bicarbonate as a buffer) into the skin-to-abdominal cavity area. The saline solution fills the fatty layer beneath the skin, making it easier to sculpt (hence the name Liposculpture). Epinephrine is a vasoconstrictor, reducing bruising and blood loss.
For tummy liposuction under local anaesthesia, your surgeon will add lidocaine (a numbing agent) to the tumescent fluid. In addition to avoiding the risks associated with general anaesthesia, this allows your cosmetic surgeon to perform lipo without putting patients to sleep.
Watch for Loose Skin and Belly Hang.
As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, causing our skin to lose elasticity and bounce back. Now anyone can have liposuction! Remember that skin laxity is more likely to be an issue with tummy lipo as you age.
Loose skin can occur after extreme weight loss, as well as after liposuction. With SmartLipo, laser-assisted liposuction in Mumbai tightens skin better than liposuction alone. In some cases, due to the size of the abdomen or lack of skin elasticity, a tummy tuck may be required.
You can gain weight even if fat doesn't move.
Liposuction is an investment in your body that requires maintenance. Tummy liposuction will not prevent you from gaining weight. Even if you gain weight, your tummy will still be slimmer! Liposuction is not a weight loss solution and should not be used as such.
Tummy liposuction permanently removes abdominal fat. Those cells don't regenerate, move, or change where they store fat.
After tummy liposuction, your body has fewer fat cells in the abdomen (about 70 percent less). If you gain weight after tummy liposuction, your body will store fat in the same places. Because we removed so much fat from your tummy , other areas may appear larger. That you can eat whatever you want and never gain weight just because your tummy is smaller after lipo means nothing. Again, liposuction is not a quick fix and should not be used as such.
6 pack abs are made in the gym and the kitchen.
"Abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym," you've probably heard. That's a lot of truth. Subcutaneous fat hides abdominal muscles, no matter how big and strong they are.
Or does it remove subcutaneous fat? So why don't all lipo patients have six-pack abs?
The answer is simple: abs come from the kitchen and the gym. There's the gym and the operating room for tummy lipo.
You've probably seen a flat tummy . They don't have much belly fat and have good muscle definition, but no six-pack. As previously shown, having a lot of visceral fat can prevent you from getting a flat tummy from lipo. You won't get abs from liposuction in Mumbai unless you first build strong ab muscles through exercise and weight training.
