Greetings from The Cosmetic Surgery Institute- Liposuction surgery section, we are recognized as the best Liposuction Clinics in India and particularly in Mumbai. The pressure on people to have good looks and a great body is increasing rapidly. It is also making liposuction surgery the most common aesthetic procedure performed across the world and India as well. It has also happened because of the increased peer pressure, expected outcomes, changing lifestyles, and the increased safety associated with these procedures.

Fat accumulation happens due to an unbridled life style, dietary indiscretion or both. Women who have gone through childbirth also find themselves in such a situation due to difficulty in losing weight and having stretch marks and loose skin in addition. If you still have resistant fat deposits inspite of trying self-imposed dieting, strenuous exercises and regular gym along with different medications prescribed by doctors and home remedies then this is the right solution for you. As liposuction surgery is the best and permanent one-time solution to get rid of your localized excess weight problem.

At the Cosmetic Surgery Institute, Liposuction surgery is performed by the team of Dr. Mohan Thomas and Dr. James Dsilva, who are considered as one of the best doctors for liposuction in Mumbai. Dr. Mohan Thomas with his years of experience and artistic mindset can sculpt your body into a perfect shape and if you maintain the outcome with healthy eating and exercise for 30 minutes, the result is permanent.

Key points about Liposuction Surgery

- Fat can be removed permanently only by surgical liposuction by use of small cannulas.

- Liposuction works best for stubborn localized fat deposits, which are resistant to diet and exercise.

- Liposuction surgery gives a slimmer contour to your body.

- Liposuction surgery is most suitable for women and men who are of relatively normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear out of proportion.

- While you can have Liposuction surgery at almost any age, but you can obtain the best results from your liposuction surgery, if your skin still has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth contour following fat removal. The best would be asking your liposuction doctor in your first consultation on what to expect.

- Just after liposuction surgery, your body shape will have noticeable improvements, but for actual results, you need to wait for few more days.


1. What is liposuction and is it safe?

Liposuction as the term means involves sucking out fat surgically from an area having excess of it. Excess fat deposit only in the skin can be sucked out through Liposuction surgery.

It is a very safe surgery if undertaken by well-trained surgeons such as Dr. Mohan Thomas, in a well-equipped facility such as The Cosmetic Surgery Institute and providing International standard of care. If all precautions are taken along with a complete clinical assessment, the complication rate is as low as 0.1 %.


2. What is the difference between laser liposuction and nonsurgical liposuction?

‘Non-surgical Liposuction’ is a misnomer and it misguides the reader into believing that fat can be removed non surgically. It is not possible. The only thing possible is to cause injury to the fat cells by either Laser, Ultrasound or Injection Lipolysis so that the fat is removed through a natural process in the lever aided by diet and exercise.

Laser liposuction on the other hand is a minimal access surgical procedure done under local anaesthesia for small localized fat deposits causing skin shrinkage along with fat removal.


3. What are the different techniques of liposuction?

Liposuction surgery has been in vogue for decades and there have been years of providing a lot of options in technology for patients to choose from as per their budget, requirement and comfort level. The various options available at The Cosmetic Surgery Institute include-

- Tumescent Liposuction

- Power Assisted Liposuction

- Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction or VASER liposuction

- Radio frequency assisted skin tightening or RFAL

- Smart Lipo or Laser Assisted Lipolysis

Suction Assisted Lipectomy (SAL) - traditional and time tested method of liposuction. Finer canulas and better techniques have resulted in vastly improved results. SAL is the gold standard in liposuction techniques even now.

Ultrasound Assisted Lipectomy (UAL) - utilizes ultrasound energy to break the fat cells before suctioning them out. Advantages include decreased effort for the surgeon and probably less amount of blood loss. However, increased chances of fluid collection and skin damage exist.


4. How long does it take to see the results of liposuction?

Results of liposuction surgery are seen immediately on the operation theatre. Swelling then sets in under the corset as a result the final result is usually appreciable after 3 weeks to 3 months and improvement continues even later. The best result is achieved when you start exercising 4 weeks after surgery.


5. What is VASER Liposuction Surgery? How can I create a 6 pack abdomen?

VASER assisted Liposuction Surgery uses a highly specialized technique called ‘Liposelection’ which selectively breaks apart & removes unwanted fat. The high frequency ‘ultrasonic’ vibration of Vaser probes causes the fat cells to shake apart while leaving blood vessels, nerve & connective tissue unharmed. This helps in reducing edema & having a quick recovery. It also helps in skin tightening of treated areas.

VASER technology is also used to create a 6 pack abdomen in a male along with a fine definition in a female. Most of the people in the media undertake this procedure to define their abdomen muscles since inspite of exercises the overlying fat layer may not allow the muscles to be prominent. VASER technology helps to reduce the thickness of the fat layer.


6. How is the Liposuction Surgery done?

Most liposuctions at our centre are performed under general anesthesia. Liposuction, especially small volume can be performed under I.V sedation and local anesthesia too. General anesthesia is safe and increases patients as well as the surgeon’s comfort during circumferential one stage body contouring, which is our preference. It helps us achieve full definition in 3 dimensions.

Tumescent and super wet techniques are used depending on the volume of aspirate expected. Tiny access points (2-3 mm) are made in natural creases or within bikini line through which the wetting solution is infiltrated. The fat is then aspirated using a fine cannulas and smooth controlled action. The commonly treated areas are – abdomen, hips, thighs, love handles, saddle bags, inner thighs, buttocks, upper and lower back and the arms. The under chin area and the jaw line are commonly addressed on the face. The amount of fat removed will depend on the areas addressed and the volume of fat deposited. Up to 18 liters can be removed in well selected cases- only in a hospital setting. The access points are closed with one stitch across, which are removed on the 7th day.


7. What is the post surgery care and how long does it take to recover from liposuction?

A custom made pressure garment/corset (made of Lycra and cotton) will be put on immediately after the surgery. The garment is to be worn for a month after surgery, 24 hours a day. The corset is not to be removed for the first 5 days.

Post surgery sequels include swelling, bruising and bearable discomfort. These are temporary and should disappear over a few weeks. You can return to work in 3-4 days and can start heavy physical activity in 4 weeks.

Complications are unusual following liposuction. Seroma, pigmentation, minor irregularities, temporary loss of sensation, blood clots and skin ulcerations have been reported. Major complications like fluid overload, embolism and shock are rare when safety regulations are adhered to.


8. Can fat come back after liposuction?

The most important thing for the permanency of the results is a change in lifestyle so as to have a calorie restricted diet and increased activity so that the number of calories consumed are always less than those that are burned. Liposculpture (Liposuction surgery) in India is not indicted for weight loss but as all tissues the removed fat has weight too and hence it does cause a significant weight loss in the long run.

Certain fat deposits are very resistant as compared to others. This is especially so in designated fat stores – abdomen, hips and thighs for a woman (pear shape) while for a man it is chest and abdomen (apple). Even if one loses weight, the body proportion may not change significantly in these areas and the bulges continue to be bothersome. Liposuction Surgery permanently removes fat cells from these areas and the body is sculpted back into shape. So if you maintain or lose weight after Liposuction Surgery, the results achieved are permanent.
