Liposuction Legs Recovery
The main zones of leg liposuction include knees, shins and calves. Removal of fat from calves and shins is carried out in cases where an oblong fatty cord is observed in these zones.
The area of calves and knees is often difficult to hide with clothing, and if there are aesthetic disadvantages of these zones, women often want to get rid of excess fat on their legs.
With the help of the liposuction procedure, the areas of the calves get a more slender and beautiful form – and this is precisely the goal of many women.
Legs consist mainly of the musculoskeletal system, which makes the leg area one of the most difficult for liposuction.
The procedure for removing fat should be done as carefully as possible, in the leg area there are a large number of blood vessels that can be injured during liposuction.
For liposuction of the knee, calf and calf area, the most preferred is the tumescent method of fat removal.
Tumescent liposuction leaves less bruising and contributes to more rapid recovery after surgery.
If you decide to get rid of fat in the area of the knees or calves, before the operation you need to have the necessary tests, in order to identify possible contraindications to liposuction.
The procedure for liposuction of the knees, calves or shins is often performed under general anesthesia, in some cases local anesthesia is used.
This issue is discussed in detail in a full-time consultation with a plastic surgeon.
The duration of the operation is on average 1 to 2 hours. The recovery period depends directly on the volume of liposuction and often ranges from 3 to 5 weeks.
During the rehabilitation, the patient may have minor swelling and bruising. During the recovery period, the patient needs to wear special compression garment.
The main function of compression linen is to help reduce the skin to new volumes, while the degree of skin elasticity plays an important role.
Sutures are removed a week after liposuction. Return to the daily working rhythm can be in 5-7 days. It is allowed to resume exercise after 3-5 weeks.
With some examples of the work performed, you can get acquainted with the relevant section of the site: photos before and after liposuction. If necessary, you can also ask any question interesting you. Laser liposuction (laser or laser-assisted lipolysis) is an innovative, minimally invasive method to get rid of almost any part of the body from excess subcutaneous fat.
The highest popularity for today uses laser liposuction legs, because it is this way you can correct all of their shortcomings and regain their slender legs, without falling under the “classic” knife plastic surgeon.
The essence of the procedure of laser liposuction and its advantages
Modern plastic surgery often resorts to the use of a laser, since this method has a number of important advantages over other, rapidly aging methods of liposuction – a scalpel and fat suction. Laser liposuction of legs and other parts of the body is performed using an optical fiber medical probe. On the patient’s body a microprojection is made, through which a cannula is inserted under the skin – a tube no larger than 1 mm in diameter. In the cannula is a probe that feeds laser energy directly onto the adipose tissue and destroys it.
The laser beam not only destroys the fat cells, but also provides the effect of coagulation (“sealing”) of the blood vessels, so that the method avoids such undesirable consequences as:
- blood loss;
- the appearance of bruises due to rupture of blood vessels;
- a long recovery period after surgery, implying a long wearing of the bandage.
In addition, when using a laser with leg liposuction, suction is not required, since surpluses of adipose tissue treated with a laser beam are removed from the body independently, previously neutralized by the liver.
The indisputable advantages of laser liposuction, in addition to those listed, include:
- minimal risk of complications and suppuration, since the laser beam has an antiseptic effect;
- ideal symmetry of the treated areas due to the possibility of selective exposure of the beam to fat cells;
- tightening the skin, improving its elasticity.
