Liposuction with Best Plastic Surgeons in India
The reputation and skill of Indian plastic surgeons are known all over the world. Few of the best-known doctors in the world are Indians and that is why many patients prefer to come to India for their plastic surgery where the cost is less, rather than getting the surgery done by an Indian surgeon in a country where the cost is much higher. However, Liposuction is a surgery and you should always be careful when you choose to get the surgery abroad. Cost is important but you should not put your health and body on ‘Discount Rank’.
One should always be careful in choosing the right surgeon for your plastic surgery in India. If you choose a surgeon solely on the basis of low cost, it may turn out to be more expensive later. After all, a corrective surgery by another surgeon would cost much more than the original one.

Liposuction- Procedure and Types
Liposuction is performed under general or local anaesthesia depending upon the patient’s preference and surgeon’s choice.
Following anaesthesia, small incisions are made inconspicuously on the target areas. The sterile liquid solution is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma and then a thin hollow tube or cannula is inserted through the incisions. The fat is dislodged in a controlled manner and suctioned out using a syringe.
There are various techniques by which liposuction is done, for instance – Tumescent liposuction, Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL), Vaser Liposuction, Body Jet Liposuction.
Super wet technique: The procedure involves injecting a local anaesthetic and adrenaline into the target tissue. The solution results in break up and removal of fat deposits. The extra fluid also helps in minimizing trauma to the surrounding tissue thereby reducing swelling and post-operative pain.
Tumescent Liposuction: This technique is similar to super wet technique except that this method uses large amounts of injected liquid solution. The outcomes of Tumescent Liposuction are similar to those associated with “super-wet” liposuction.
Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL): The treatment modality used in Ultrasound – Assisted Liposuction is “super-wet” or “tumescent” liposuction.
UAL uses sound waves to liquefy fat deposits following injection of fluids. The sound waves break – up the fat deposits and minimize trauma resulting in less bruising and blood loss.
Dry Liposuction: This liposuction technique is not frequently used today. This early method of liposuction required general anaesthesia and was absent of a liquefying agent.
Liposuction has always been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures according to Statistics revealed by American Society of Plastic Surgery Association.
The surgery can be performed alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures such as Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation or Facelift.
