Liposuction in Egypt has recently become one of the most popular plastic interventions. Liposuction simply is a plastic surgery performed to get rid of excess unwanted fat from specific areas of the body, like the stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or neck, to reshape the area where liposuction is performed and give it a slim, and contoured appearance.
Liposuction in Egypt has many synonyms among the public including lipoplasty and body contouring, all refer to the meaning of getting rid of stubborn fat and enjoying a slimmer, youthful, attractive, and contoured look.
Is liposuction permanent, is it worth it, is it better to be performed invasively or noninvasively, of course, all these questions come to your mind when you look at your mirror and dream of a slimmer appearance.
Between the lines of this article, Dr. Ali Gaber would verify, if is liposuction permanent, and would answer all these questi,ons and disclose all you need to know regarding liposuction in Egypt.
What could liposuction do?
Dr. Ali Gaber demonstrates that liposuction in Egypt is the most effective way to get rid of the stubborn fat layers localized in a specific body area where diet and exercise are ineffective alone.
What could not liposuction do?
Although being the most powerful solution for local weight loss, liposuction in Egypt isn’t considered to be an overall weight-loss technique or a weight-loss alternative for a healthy diet, regular exercise, or bariatric surgeries for those morbidly obese and/ or highly resistant to traditional weight loss strategies.
Dr. Ali Gaber ensures that to obtain the best outcomes from liposuction, you should be at ideal or near ideal body weight and suffering from excess unwanted fat localized in specific places in your body.
How is liposuction in Egypt performed?
Liposuction in Egypt is performed in two major ways, either surgically or non-surgically. Within each type, there are a variety of different techniques used according to the amount of fat needed to be removed, the area selected, patient targets, and available budget.
Surgical vs nonsurgical liposuction
Traditional liposuction is a surgical intervention, involving a series of small incisions where a tube, called a cannula, is inserted into a fatty area to break down the fat layers with different techniques, then the fat is sucked out through this tube outside the body by this tube.
While non Surgical liposuction fat layers are destroyed non-invasively by lasers, heat, cooling, or ultrasound waves then the body would get rid of the destroyed fat as metabolic products.
Is liposuction permanent? Fortunately, results gained from both surgical and nonsurgical liposuction in Egypt are permanent and the fat you lost would not be regained again.
Surgical Liposuction in Egypt
Invasive liposuction results in a permanent reduction of the fat cells after just one procedure, in addition, it could be performed on large areas where there are significant fat deposits. But, since it’s an invasive procedure, there is some recovery time with some side effects that include swelling, pain, and bruising and finally, it might carry some risks.
Dr. Ali Gaber enumerates the types of surgical Liposuction in Egypt, all these types share that fat calls are suctioned outside the body through the inserted cannula, but they differ in the technique used to break these fat layers down.
This type of surgical fat removal is considered the most common type where the surgeon injects a mixture of salt water and medicines into the area needed to be treated. The salt water helps in fat removal while medicines relieve pain and narrow the blood vessels.
Both fat and excess fluids are suctioned from the body through a thin tube inserted under the skin and connected to a vacuum.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL)
This type of liposuction is either used alone or in combination with traditional liposuction, in UAL, the sound wave energy is used to open the fat-cell walls for easier removal and better outcomes. Recently a new kind of UAL known as vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance (VASER)-assisted fat removal, which carries additional benefits that this machine could improve the shape of the skin post-procedure.
Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL)
During this type of fat removal, fat deposits are broken down by the energy emitted from the laser, then the fat is removed using a thin tube.
Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)
This type of liposuction depends on a thin tube that moves back and forth quickly so this vibration allows it to pull out difficult fat more easily and faster.
Plastic surgeons sometimes prefer PAL since it’s associated with less pain and swelling, in addition, it allows the surgeon to remove fat more accurately, and effectively when a lot of fat needs to be removed or when the patient had liposuction before.
Is liposuction permanent?
Is liposuction permanent? That is the commonest question that comes to the patient, is it like the traditional weight loss strategies? Dr. Ali Gaber ensures that results obtained from surgical liposuction in Egypt are permanent since liposuction lowers the number of fat cells in a specific area and the fat cells the body loses could not be regenerated again. Unlike traditional methods of weight loss that depend on reducing the fat cell size which could get bigger when you gain weight.
Non-Surgical Liposuction in Egypt
Recently newer techniques have been developed in Egypt to achieve the same outcomes as surgical liposuction but in a non-invasive way.
This technique of fat removal depends on either laser- or light-assisted, cryo or freezing therapy, or ultrasound or radiofrequency to destroy the fat cell membranes surrounding the fat cells leading to its death, and the body would get rid of it over time.
Pros and cons of nonsurgical Liposuction in Egypt
Dr. Ali Gaber would emphasize both advantages and disadvantages of nonsurgical liposuction in Egypt. Benefits of non-invasive liposuction include no incisions were done, less or no recovery time required, less swelling and pain, a greater reduction in post-procedure complications such as infection, absence of a lot of pre-procedure preparation, and the patient could resume his normal activities just after the session.
However associated with those benefits, nonsurgical fat removal procedure results take weeks or months and several sessions to be noticed and usually are less dramatic than those obtained from surgical interventions, also since being an external treatment, it could be more difficult to target selected fat in addition, targeting may be tricky as the physician cannot immediately “catch” where fat destruction has been effective and must wait for additional treatment periods to clarify the effects.
Is liposuction permanent?
While needing some time to be fully noticed, results associated with nonsurgical liposuction are permanent since the body could not regenerate new fat cells rather than those destroyed and metabolized.
Which technique fits me?
Perhaps You reached out to the decision of getting rid of the unwanted stubborn fats that are unresponsive to traditional ways of weight loss, but you always ask yourself what should I do?
Dr. Ali Gaber verifies that your plastic surgeon is the best one who could help you to choose the right technique, no one technique fits all, and the best type of liposuction is chosen according to your general health condition, amount of fats needed to be removed, your targets, and your available budget.
