Liposuction Surgery vs. Plastic Surgery
Both plastic surgery and liposuction surgery emerged from the highly esteemed perspective value on beauty. Both aim to respond to the same aesthetic need, to take action for the same cosmetic reason. In comparison though, the primary aim of plastic surgery is to treat the skin cells using advanced cosmetic procedures. On the other hand, the primal aim of liposuction surgeons is to specialize in fat cells reduction using completely distinct liposuction surgery methods.
By virtue, liposuction surgery is best performed by most medical practitioners in patients who closely have their ideal weights but have abnormal fat accumulations in some local areas of their bodies. Another thing considered by health providers is to assure that potential liposuction surgery patients are not only trying to turn to liposuction procedure to reduce their weights. Certified doctors often clarify that liposuction surgery is not a cure for major weight problems such as generalized obesity. It could be performed on obese patients should their diet, exercise, and other traditional weight loss methods fail to eliminate the more persistent fatty tissues of their bodies. Patients should also be cautious enough in planning a liposuction surgery near their breast area (as with liposuction of frontal auxiliary fat pads of the arms). Doctors also do not advise women to substitute liposuction with mamaplasty or breast reduction, since the lower breast portions are a common risk for triggering cancer especially if complications and other imminent risks in the liposuction method become unavoidable.
Aside from cosmetically providing a remedy for the enduring unsightly fat bulges of the body, liposuction surgery also helps women patients get rid of the abnormal fat build-up on their thighs along the reproductive region. These irregularly placed fat deposits are especially difficult to eliminate by diet and exercise alone, and could be an impediment to the sexual functions of some (previously over weight or obese) women.
And apart form the known procedures of removing fats in liposuction surgery, in this day and age, adding collagen and fats is now possible as a shaping technique using advanced technology. This is especially done in facial restoration and enhancement wherein the autologous fats (fats extracted from the patient’s own body) are used to sculpt (liposculpture) or shape another section of the body through re-injection. However, the injected fat fluids could not last permanently. The patients may need to have their surgeons touch-up on the treated areas from time to time.
