Liposuction and Surgical Challenges

Careful surgical teamAny sincere surgeon prioritizes the patient’s health during a plastic surgery, while providing him or her, a safe and relaxing environment. Every liposculpture expert faces a set of surgical challenges. The technical advancements in the field have definitely elevated liposuction surgery to very safe levels. However, doctors are concerned over related surgical challenges. Successfully handling these challenges or overcoming them depends on the surgeon’s expertise. A board certified, reputed doctor is well trained & experienced in minimizing the surgical challenges of liposuction. This definitely best ensures the patient’s health safety.

Surgical Challenges for Liposuction Doctors during the Surgery:

  • Body Fluid Management: Introducing and eliminating the right quantity of fluid during the surgery is a crucial assessment for a surgeon. The patient’s fluid balance needs to stay intact throughout the operation.
  • Balanced Lipo Suction: Assessing and removing a safe quantity of liposuction fat is another tricky area for a doctor. Liposuction should not be excessive, as that poses potential health threats, such as internal bleeding, cell distress, etc. Skin dimpling and lumping are some of the visible side effects of excessive liposuction.
  • Patient Comfort: The anxiety and distress of the patient should be minimal.
  • Cell Trauma Management: The surgeon needs to be very careful to not intrude into neighboring tissues, including blood vessels and connective tissues. Bruising, swelling and redness are the common side effects after liposuction, while skin necrosis, skin numbness, etc are some grave ones. Using a slightly higher concentration (within safe limits) of adrenaline in the liposuction fluid is said to help reduce bruising, swelling, and pain, thereby delivering better results.
  • Blood Clot Management: The chances of blood clot formation are usually high during or after any surgery. The clots often occur in thighs. The risk can be considerably diffused by putting compression equipment on the patient’s legs during surgery.
  • Pain Management: Anesthesia makes the process painless, but doctors need to ensure that they cause the least possible trauma to cells. This helps control the intensity of post surgery complications and side effects. Small incisions, few stitches, small cannula use (if possible), and targeted liposuction are some of the keys to safe surgery.
  • Fine Contouring: A doctor with a sense of aesthetics, expert hands, keenness and patience is able to achieve the best liposuction results.
  • Meeting Expectations: The first helpful step towards this is a detailed discussion with the patient, pre-liposuction. The next step is to help the patient understand that the results of cosmetic surgery are never perfect. The goals should be realistic. This helps bridge the gap between expectations and the actual results.
