Proslimelt is non-invasive body slimming and contouring technology uses low frequency ultrasound waves which penetrate into the fat under the skin. These waves break down the cellular membranes rapidly, allowing your body to effectively release liquid fat to be broken down in the liver.
Typical treated areas are those with localized fat and extra volume:
- Localized fat on the arms
- Waistline and hips
- Inner and outer thighs
- Inner knees
A course of treatment normally includes, depending on the site and the tissue’s structure, between two and ten sessions. Approximately 15 to 20 days apart between each session are recommended to allow the metabolism and elimination of fat as well as to avoid, though rarely, overloading the liver. However, the needed sessions depend on the basal metabolism and lifestyle of each patient. For best result maintain a proper diet combined with regular exercise to cut down your adipose tissues.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure aimed at removal of fat from your body. Though you can lose some weight this is not primarily intended at weight reduction and it is not a bariatric surgery.
Patients with following problems are good candidates for this procedure.
- It helps to get rid of excess of fat from localized areas like abdomen, buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, back, arms and neck.
- Liposuction is equally effective in both men and women.
- Improves the contours
- Can be done in post bariatric patients who want body contouring.
- Can be done in combination with abdominoplasty.
The procedure can be done in OPD basis under local anesthesia for small areas, or else regional or general anesthesia where patient needs to get admitted on the day of the procedure and can be discharged on the same day evening or on the next day.
The basic technique of liposuction involves the removal of fat via a hollow metal tube (cannula) that is passed through the fatty tissue. One of the most common types of liposuction involves the aspiration of fat by attaching a pump that generates a vacuum. This is known as suction assisted lipoplasty (SAL). In addition, a motor may be used on the cannula that causes the cannula to vacillate back and forth thus performing much of the “work” of liposuction known as power assisted liposuction (PAL). In tumescent liposuction, local anesthetic and other medications are injected into the fatty layer before suctioning excess fat.
Risks & Complications
The subject of risks and potential complications of surgery is best discussed on a personal basis between you and your plastic surgeon. Some of the potential complications that may be discussed with you include bleeding, infection, changes in sensation, scarring, allergic reactions and damage to underlying structures.
Abdominoplasty is a commonly performed body-contouring procedure to improve the shape and tone of your abdomen. This operation is often referred to as a ‘tummy tuck’. The operation is suitable for people with loose abdominal skin following pregnancy or significant weight loss, or if you have fatty bulges in the lower tummy that you just can’t get rid of with exercise. An abdominoplasty removes any excess skin and fat as well as improving the abdominal contour by tightening the muscle layer. Liposuction is often performed at the same time to optimise the result. The surgery results in a firmer abdomen with a more flattering contour. It is not a weight loss surgery (Bariatric Surgery).
PRE OPERATIVE ASSESSMENT
It is important for you to tell your surgeon the specific areas that concern you. These may include loose skin, stretch marks, fatty bulges, loose abdominal wall muscle tone and also other medical problems which can affect wound healing, such as smoking and diabetes, as well as risk factors for deep venous thrombosis (DVT or leg vein clots). People contemplating future pregnancies or significant weight loss are best to defer surgery. The expected scars, as well as the other risks of the operation will be explained.
Abdominoplasty is performed under a general anaesthesia. The surgical scar is at the lower most part of the abdomen thus hiding the scar. There are many variations on the procedure ranging from a mini-abdominoplasty with laparoscopic abdominal wall tightening to a full abdominoplasty involving removal of excess skin and fat, tightening of the abdominal wall muscles and repositioning of the umbilicus (belly button).
AFTER THE SURGERY
After the operation your abdomen or stomach will feel very tight and you may have a slightly flexed posture for a couple of weeks. This means you will be slightly bent over, not able to stand up completely straight. Most patients stay in Hospital for 2-4 days. Recovery times vary with most people being able to return to work in two to four weeks, with no sport or heavy lifting for 6-8 weeks.
