In women, it's hip, buttocks, knee area, as well as the lower part of the abdomen. In men, the "trap" are mainly on the chest and abdomen, turning it into a notorious "beer belly."

As for the volumes that can be pumped out at a time, than it is smaller, the better for you. Agree, if the doctor has to perform liposuction in stages, and run from those who assures you "instant results."

The second myth. Ultrasound, vacuum, tumescent liposuction …. They are so different!

To find out which technology is right for you, a specialist conducts a preliminary examination.

Speaking of safety, the best in this regard is an ultrasonic method. Ultrasound causes the so-called cavitation, when fat cells formed many small bubbles and they rip them from the inside. Cavitation is accompanied by heating, the fat melts and pumped very easily. This avoids damage to surrounding blood vessels, significantly reduces blood loss, and does not injure the skin, leaving it rough and bumpy.

He has a number of features, some of which allow you to operate even under local anesthesia.

The third myth. Liposuction spoils the appearance of the skin. Remember what happens to the balloon when it suddenly discharged from the air

Such a danger does exist, if you delete a large amount of fat and skin badly reduced. To reduce this risk to a minimum, it is possible to use the method ultrasonic liposuction, which has a pronounced effect of "tightening".

The fourth myth. Liposuction can do absolutely everything. It has no contraindications, and does not cause any complications.

Any method of liposuction — a surgical procedure, and it is, of course, has a number of limitations. So, contraindications for liposuction are expressed arterial hypertension, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, coagulopathy, pronounced renal dysfunction and liver.

Once the operation is over, you will have to stay in hospital for at least a day — for you will be watching your surgeon. May have a fever, would be uncomfortable to move around. Swelling and bruising are inevitable, they are kept for about three weeks and then disappear. An important point — a month after liposuction you have to wear special compression garment.
