Liposuction is a surgical technique that is used to remove stubborn fat deposits from underneath the skin on specific parts of the body. This technique can be used on women and men to sculpt the body and be rid of non-responsive fat deposits on specific parts of the upper and middle body. Liposuction can also be a solution for cellulite and gynaecomastia. Vibro-liposuction is one of the latest developments in cosmetic surgery. The cannula is able to vibrate for more optimal results for both the surgeon and the patient.
How Does the Procedure Work?
On its own, liposuction involves a surgeon utilising a cannula to break down and vacuum fat deposits from underneath the skin. The surgeon will make a small incision near the affected area to gain access to the fat deposits underneath the skin, inserting the cannula to break down the fat deposits and vacuum them from the body. By adding compressed air to the cannula, it adds additional vibrating motions. Although it seems trivial, the vibrations assist the surgeon to break down the fat more easily and precisely in comparison to regular liposuction. This allows vibro-liposuction to target more sensitive areas of the body as well.
Cellulite and Gynaecomastia
Cellulite is a condition where fat deposits have penetrated the skin tissue, forming uneven skin surfaces that is also called “orange peel” skin. This is a common condition for women, as their skin tissue pattern is easier to penetrate in direct comparison to men. On the other side, more than 60% of all men will experience gynaecomastia throughout their lives. This condition causes chest protrusion as a result of fatty deposits forming underneath the chest area as a result of a hormonal imbalance. Vibro-liposuction can be a solution for people suffering from either cellulite or gynaecomastia.
Benefits of Vibro-Liposuction
The vibrating cannula has several benefits for both patient and surgeon. Patients can expect less swelling from vibro-liposuction in comparison to regular liposuction. The vibrations also stimulate collagen production in the treated area. Collagen is the main structural protein in our skin, allowing the affected area to heal more sufficiently and deliver better overall results. Since the procedure is faster, your anaesthetic time will be shorter as well.
