What is Liposuction?
Today, liposuction is considered one of the most popular procedures in the world. This operation allows you to adjust the contours of the body, get rid of fat on the abdomen or hips without surgical intervention. To eliminate body fat, doctors of modern clinics use special devices that are absolutely harmless to health. Thanks to such devices, the procedure of liposuction of the abdomen takes place without damage to internal organs. The operation is suitable for both men and women.
There are several different types of liposuction. Your plastic surgeon will be able to help determine the choice of procedure. The type of operation is selected depending on the degree of obesity and on the individual features of each patient's body.
This procedure is absolutely safe for health. And risks can arise only due to the individual features of individual patients and the incompetence of a doctor. Therefore, doctors must be carefully selected. It must be a proven and experienced plastic surgeon.
In world practice, this procedure has been used for over forty years. First performed in 1979 in France. Then there was only a standard vacuum technique. It had a low invasiveness and minimal risks of postoperative complications. Over time, doctors from different countries began to improve the technique of eliminating body fat.
As a result, we have different types of liposuction, so almost everyone can choose the most suitable option for themselves, depending on individual features.
The most problematic areas are the buttock region, the outer surface of the thighs, the inner surface of the knees, flanks, chin, abdomen, etc. A considerable amount of adipose tissue accumulates in these areas of the body, which is almost impossible to remove with the help of fitness training or diet food.

The operation is not performed in patients with liver and kidney, thyroid gland, varicose veins, diabetes mellitus, arterial hyperstension problems. Any surgical interventions are contraindicated in infectious, inflammatory processes.
