Liposuction Surgery in Hyderabad

liposuctionLiposuction is an invasive cosmetic surgery procedure that breaks fat from the body and removes it through suction technique. It is also known as “Lipoplasty”, “Liposculpture”,” Lipo” or “Lipectomy”.

Liposuction is not used to treat any disease or disorder, but to transform the external appearance of a person. It is used to suck fat from various parts of the body like the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, calves, upper arms and back. During liposuction, the fat is removed through a hollow instrument – a cannula – which is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula.

Liposuction is the most common cosmetic operation all over the world, especially in America and the United Kingdom. In fact, over 400,000 procedures are carried out in the US every year.

How Liposuction Evolved?-

The roots of liposuction date back to the 1920s, when Dr. Dujarier, a French surgeon performed a fat removal procedure on a model in 1926.

In the late 1960s, surgeon Leon Forrester used primitive curettage techniques to remove fat. However, results were not defined and it was concluded with lot of blood loss and high mortality. What we know as ‘modern liposuction’ today started with a presentation in 1982, by Dr. Yves-Gerard Illouz, a French surgeon. He started what became known as the ‘Illouz Method” – a technique of suction-assisted lipolysis (breakdown or destruction of fats) after infusing fluid into tissues using blunt cannulae and high-vacuum suction.

In recent years, laser tipped probes – which induce thermal lipolysis – have been introduced. Over the last three decades, advancement in liposuction techniques have meant that a larger number of fat cells can be removed with less blood loss, risk, discomfort, and shorter recovery periods. Fat can also be used today as a natural filler (autologous fat transfer); where fat is taken from one part of the body, cleaned, and then injected into another area of the body – for example, to enhance the shape of the buttocks or reduce wrinkles.

There has been a tremendous development in the field of liposuction to enhance the aesthetic beauty of a person.

When is Liposuction used?

Liposuction is a method applied to improve the external appearance of a person and not used as a treatment for obesity or long term weight loss. Liposuction is mainly used to improve how a person looks, rather than providing any physical health benefits. In many cases, in spite of following a healthy lifestyle, a person is unable to achieve perfectly sculpted, desired looks. For example, there might be some obstinate areas of fat resistant to exercise and diet.

When you gain weight, each fat cell increases in size and volume. Liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in isolated areas.

How much fat is removed from a specific area depends on its appearance and the volume of fat. Contour changes resulting from liposuction can be long-lasting, as long as the patient’s weight does not increase. Liposuction is only done in relatively small areas of the human body. It should not be used if the person wants to get rid of stretch marks, cellulite, dimpling, or other skin surface irregularities.

What is Gynecomastia and how to cure it?

 

Gynecomastia is an enlarged breast condition found in teenage boys and older men, due to excess fat tissue in the region. Gynecomastia may be characterised by an amount of fat tissue around the breast, causing them to look prominent. Sometimes, it may cause tenderness and pain in the swollen area. Gynecomastia may vanish

on its own, but if the problem persists, then surgery is the best way to get rid of it.

 

 

 

Causes of Gynecomastia-

There may be different causes of Gynecomastia

  • Hormonal Imbalance

Gynecomastia may be caused due to imbalance of male and female hormones, testosterone and oestrogen. Men usually produce large amount of testosterone, which stops the oestrogen hormones to develop breasts. If the secretion of oestrogen increases, then the breast tissue develops.

  • Obesity-

Sometimes obesity can also increase the oestrogen levels, so the breast tissue develops.

 

  • New Born Babies

Gynecomastia may also develop in new-born baby boys, because sometimes, oestrogen passes through the placenta of the mother to the baby.

  • Puberty-

During puberty, the hormonal levels in boys may vary and sometimes the oestrogen levels may increase, causing enlarged breast tissue.

 

  • Old Age-

As men get older they produce less testosterone. They accumulate excess body fat and hence develop manboobs.

  • Other causes of Gynecomastia-
  1. a) Medicine side effects
  2. b) Alcohol and illegal drugs like marijuana, amphetamine, heroin, methadone.
  3. c) Chronic disorders like kidney failure or liver damage.
  4. d) Malnutrition and starvation.
  5. e) Hypogonadism
  6. f) Tumors
  7. g) Antidepressants
  8. h) Antibiotics
  9. i) Ulcer medication like cimetidine.

 

When should you see the doctor for Gynecomastia?

Whenever you can see symptoms such as pain, swelling and tenderness along with some discharge, you should consider consulting a doctor. Your doctor will ask you questions about your medical and drug history and the health conditions running in your family. The doctor will also do a physical examination that may include careful evaluation of your breast tissue, abdomen and genitals.

Initial tests to determine the cause of your gynecomastia may include:

  • Blood tests
  • Mammograms

You may need further testing depending on your initial test results, including:

  • Computerized tomography (CT) scans
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans
  • Testicular ultrasounds
  • Tissue biopsies

 

Treatment for Gynecomastia-

In most cases, gynecomastia may vanish with time without any formal treatment. However, if gynecomastia is caused by an underlying condition, such as hypogonadism, malnutrition or cirrhosis, that condition may need treatment. If you’re taking medications that can cause gynecomastia, your doctor may recommend stopping them or substituting them with other medications. In adolescents with no apparent cause of gynecomastia, the doctor may recommend periodic check-ups every three to six months, to see if the condition improves on its own. Gynecomastia often goes away without treatment in less than two years. However, treatment may be necessary if gynecomastia doesn’t improve with time.

Surgery to remove excess breast tissue-

If you still have significant breast enlargement despite initial treatment or observation, your doctor may advise surgery. Two gynecomastia surgery options are:

  • Liposuction.This surgery removes breast fat, but not the breast gland tissue itself.
  • This type of surgery removes the breast gland tissue. If the gynecomastia is caused due to excess breast tissue, then it needs to be removed with a scalpel. The surgery is often done endoscopically, meaning only small incisions are used. This less invasive type of surgery involves less recovery time.

Normally there are no complications post-surgery and the patient may return to normal activities, besides reduced sensation around the nipples and uneven contour of the chest. The patient can get back to normal life, six weeks after surgery.
