Among bodybuilding activities, liposuction, laser lipolysis and body lipofilling are distinguished.
Liposuction is a method of dealing with excess fat by taking it from certain areas with special tools – cannulas. Contrary to the existing myth about the temporary effect of liposuction, adipose tissue at the procedure site is not formed again, since during the operation adipocytes responsible for fat metabolism and its accumulation are removed.
Laser lipolysis – removal of excess adipose tissue with a laser. Effective when necessary to remove fat in a small area. The procedure is the effect of a certain wave and frequency of a laser beam on fatty deposits, during which fat is dissolved, without the need to extract it. Indisputable advantages of plastics are non-surgical intervention, the lack of a rehabilitation period and skin tightening, due to the heating of collagen fibers during the operation.
Lipofilling is the transplantation of its own fat from areas with excess in places where there is a lack of fat deposits. It is safe due to the use of the patient’s own biomaterial, which eliminates material rejection. It is carried out without cuts, which significantly reduces the rehabilitation period.
Plastic surgery offers a procedure in cases where it is necessary to carry out body modeling by taking excess in donor zones and redistributing them into recipient zones. Donors most often are the abdomen, hips, waist and shoulders. Recipients of our body – mammary glands, calves, hands, face (cheekbones, lips), chest. Depending on the patient’s initial data, the buttocks can act as both donor and recipient areas.
Transplantation of adipose tissue in the chest area is carried out in order to increase it, in the face area – for rejuvenation. The presence of the most popular transformation zones in liposculpture, however, does not impose restrictions on the choice of anatomical areas in aesthetic modeling. Moreover, almost every zone can be both a donor and a recipient. But, given the standards of beauty in the world, most often doctors reduce the waist and abdomen, at the same time increasing the chest and making the buttocks rounded.
Such aesthetic plastic body is ideal for those who have stable weight indicators for the six months preceding the operation, leads an active lifestyle and keeps to a diet. The severity of the requirements is necessary to maintain the result obtained with the operation, since a return to a normal lifestyle can, in time, negate all the efforts of the surgery. In addition, the operation is contraindicated for women planning future motherhood (after childbirth, the result of liposculpture is likely to be leveled as well).
An appointment for a preliminary consultation is necessary for the surgeon to assess the degree of further medical intervention, assess your health condition, examine your medical history and take into account the presence of past operations (if any). Such a meeting is also necessary to make sure that you have no contraindications to the contour correction, to inform you about the duration of the procedure and explain your actions at the preparation stage and after the operation.
Contraindications for lipomodeling: diseases of the connective tissue, the presence of inflammatory processes in the body, pregnancy and lactation, diseases of the endocrine system and blood-forming organs, third and fourth degrees of obesity, chronic diseases of the liver, kidneys, and heart.
Preparations for liposculpture begin with the implementation of a full examination.
A few weeks before the plastic, the patient should stop smoking and drinking alcohol, stop taking aspirin-containing drugs.
Bodylifting is preceded by a certain diet rich in fruits and vegetables and excluding products capable of retaining body fluids.
With the exception of giving up bad habits and wearing compression underwear, there are no particular contraindications during the postoperative period. Standard – the rejection of serious physical exertion, visits to the sauna, solarium, swimming pool, massage sessions. Objectively, this is a low price for a perfect body!
In some cases, the development of infections, the formation of hematomas, scars is possible. For some time after lipofilling in the area of incisions there is a decrease in sensitivity. All negative consequences can be minimized by strictly adhering to the doctor’s prescriptions.
The price of plastics depends on the number of expected transformations and is determined by the plastic surgeon during the preliminary consultation.
