Inner Knee Liposuction Before And After

View successful results of inner knee liposuction patients who have been treated by various plastic surgeons. If you think that an inner knee liposuction is a far-fetched idea, then think again. The truth is, it is a very common and popular procedure for both men and women.

It works best for those who have lost weight yet are still concerned about the fatty deposits that remain above and around the knee cap.

With new liposuction procedures such as the Vaser liposuction, the procedure has become easier to accomplish. In addition to that, more favourable results are noted.

If you are about to undergo an inner knee liposuction, your doctor would advise you to limit or refrain from taking alcohol as well as smoking two weeks prior to the surgery.

This is because you are more prone to complications such as infections and pneumonia if you regularly drink and smoke.

You will also be asked to fast about 24 hours the day before the scheduled date of the treatment.

Anesthesia is a risk if administered with a full stomach and can result in aspiration; hence it is ensured that the patient has an empty stomach prior to the procedure.

Taking anti-inflammatory drugs before the surgery is also prohibited because this can cause thin blood and result in profuse bleeding, which should be precluded at all costs since severe blood loss can be life threatening.

Inner knee liposuction is generally done by making two tiny cuts on each knee. The cannula is then inserted, which is attached to a pump that sucks the fats out of the knee.

When the ideal proportioned is achieved, the cuts will be stitched and the area will be bandaged. If a laser is used, no stitching is required. The whole procedure takes about an hour or 2 to finish.

The pain is controlled by taking over-the-counter pain medications.

Depending on the work done, some patients are able to work and go on with their regular activities a few days to several weeks after the surgery.

After a few weeks or once the incisions have fully healed, wearing shorts and above-the-knee length dresses are now possible with those shapely calves and toned knees.

Complications, such as scarring and infections, are possible but seldom manifests. And even if the patient experience side effect post-surgery, such as swelling and redness on the incision site, there is no need to worry since this normally subsides after a few days.

However if symptoms seem to worsen or persist, you should immediately see your surgeon to determine what’s causing the problem. People with autoimmune diseases as well as heart and kidney problems are advised not to undergo the procedure due to the increased health risks involved.
