Liposuction in Korea - Seoul Guide Medical

Having the perfect figure is a goal that many of us have, but many of us are not genetically pre-dispositioned to achieve. We work-out, we eat healthy, we limit drinking and smoking, and get a full night rest every day, yet our body still doesn’t look how we want it to. Some of us do this for years, and still we do not have the results we want.

If you find yourself striving for results that seem impossible to achieve, maybe considering some help is the perfect way for you to achieve the body shape and definition you have always dreamed of.

What is liposuction surgery?

This word literally means fat suctioned, or fat being pulled out. We all know there are stubborn areas of fat that seem to always stay no matter how we change our lives and diet. And we all know you cannot pick where your body is going to burn fat from. But we live in a wonderful world in which you can pick where you will have fat suctioned from. This is called liposuction surgery.

Who Is a Good Candidate For Liposuction?

First, we can start with an at-home body type analysis. The amount of fat on everyone’s bodies highly varies. No two people are the same, and where your body positions fat also will vary.

There are three main body types that most people fall under, them being pear shaped, apple-shaped, and triangle-shaped. This simply refers to how your body naturally stores the fat.

Pear shaped people tend to hold most of their fat on the bottom part of their body, while triangle-shaped people tend to hold most of their fat on the upper part of their body.

Apple shaped people tend to store fat in the medial part of their body, such as the stomach.

Another two types include rectangular bodies, which tend to hold low amounts of fat and therefore are not the most ideal candidates for this procedure, or hourglass bodies.

These bodies tend to be evenly dispersed on their fat placement between the upper and lower region of the body, and consequently are usually the most desired shape.

Liposuction Procedure

The most wonderful thing above all with liposuction is that you can have just about anywhere in your body liposuctioned. If you want your arm liposuctioned, done. If you want your entire body liposuctioned, done. This type of body contouring is easily achievable.

Most forms of liposuction will involve small incisions being made in the desired area you want the fat removed from. A cannula (think of it as a straw), will then go into the incision through the fat layers and begin extracting the fat through a suctioning device.

It is very important that you realize the goal is not to remove the most fat possible, but to remove fat in the most even way possible. If too much fat is removed, this can lead to dents throughout the liposuctioned areas.

Examples of areas the body can have liposuction done on include:

  • 360 Tummy Flanks Lower Back Liposuction
  • Lovehandle
  • Flank
  • 360 Thighs Liposuction
  • Arm
  • Scapula or Polymastia
  • Bra Line
  • Mini Liposuction
  • Double Chin
  • Deep Cheek Fat Removal
  • Buccal Fat and Deep Check
  • Buccal Fat Removal

Some of the most important factors in how the results will turn out include how deep the fat is suctioned, and the type of suctioning used. To prevent any dents, bumps or hyperpigmentation its best that the fat suctioned is only taken from the middle and deep layers, so preserve the top layer of fat and retain the original skins texture and consistency.

As for the techniques of suctioning, SAL (suction-assisted liposuction), UAL (ultrasound-assisted liposuction), and PAL (power-assisted liposuction) have all been proven to be safe and effective in giving positive results.

Overview of Recovery After Liposuction

After the procedure you are able to go home the same day of the surgery. Most procedures will involve small sutures in the incision sites, so you will have to come back around a week later to have those removed. There can be bruising and swelling up to a month after surgery, so final results will not be visible immediately after the procedure.

After the procedure

This is in many peoples eyes the most important step. Fat is able to duplicate and expand, regardless of how much fat is removed. A proper diet and regular exercise will be key factors in maintaining the weight removed during the procedure off.

Many people make the assumption that because they are smaller in size, they can compensate by eating more. This is incorrect and your body will gain the back weight, and if not careful many even become heavier than before.

Though the weight many not be gained in the same spot as before due to the liposuction, it can be gained in other areas which can make the body seem all the more disproportionate.

Alternative uses for liposuction

Though liposuction is mostly known for its aesthetic benefits in the world of plastic surgery, it is not limited to only being used to enhance one’s appearance. Due to how low the complications are for this procedure, many other fields, particularly reconstructive and ablative surgery are applying this technique into their surgical methods. Many alternative uses include scar revisions, axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in the armpits), and lipoma removal (benign tumor removal).

Liposuction Complications

Another wonderful factor of liposuction is its low rate of complications. Any complications related to the procedure usually will not come from the procedure itself, but from pre or post-operative methods that were not carried out properly.

In this case, infection is always a risk with an open incision that is not cleaned and maintained properly, but still very rare to occur in this procedure. Edema, or swelling, is natural due to the trauma of the surgery, but it usually is treated by wearing a compression garment for 4-6 weeks after the procedure.
