8 Facts about Liposuction

FACT 1Liposuction can be traced back to the 1920’s when a French surgeon, Dr Charles Dujarier introduced the concept of body contouring and fat removal. The invention of modern liposuction techniques was developed by two Italian gynaecologists Arpad and Giorgio Fischer in 1974, with further advancementsin technology in 1980 by French physicians Illouz and Fourneir.

FACT 2– According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Liposuction replaced Breast Augmentation as the most frequently performed surgical procedure with a 16% increase and more than one billion was spent on the procedure nationwide in 2014.

FACT 3- Fat cells that have been removed via liposuction can be transferred to enhance other areas of the body e.g breasts, face and buttocks.

FACT 4- Liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss or obesity. In fact the ideal candidate for liposuction, should be within 30% of your ideal body weight. Liposuction eliminates unwanted fatty deposits that have not responded to exercise and diet. This type of ‘fat’ is generally due to genetics and hereditary factors then lifestyle.

FACT 5 – Did you know that liposuction can be performed on the following areas: abdomen, waist, back, breast, hips, inner thighs, outer thighs, calves, ankles, upper arms, mons pubis, man boobs, legs and face?

FACT 6 – Liposuction is performed to eliminate excess fat cells from problem areas that have not responded to exercise and dieting.

FACT 7 – It seems that after puberty we do not create fat cells. So when you gain weight, you expand the fat cells you already have. Liposuction permanently removes those fat cells to improve your body’s contour and shape. Should you gain weight after liposuction, it goes to the fat cells that are remaining in your body.
