Liposuction has several types: standard liposuction, tumescent (vacuum), ultrasound, laser liposuction and electronic lipomodelirovanie. Standard involves the removal of fat via a cannula - a special tube and vacuum. Cuts through soft tissue tube is inserted under the skin, moving it back and forth. By means of these mechanical movements is destroyed and fat through the holes in the cannula extends outwardly. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, the recovery period is 3-4 days.
Unlike the standard tumescent liposuction is that before the surgery, the patient entered a special solution of Klein (in honor of the developer Jeffrey Klein), consisting of saline, epinephrine and ledokaina. The solution is typically a planned volume of adipose tissue removed.
Under the influence of the solution turns into liquid fat emulsion and then effortlessly derived by the standard procedure through the cannula. Due to the fact that the fat before pumping softened beforehand, and the blood vessels constrict, it allows to use thinner cannula. When using thin cannulas scars after the operation are barely noticeable.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, so the patient is fully conscious, without feeling any pain or discomfort. The recovery period is faster than standard liposuction, and is 1-2 days.
One variety of tumescent liposuction - gidroliposkulptura - appeared relatively recently. At its conduct instead of cannulas used very thin needles, hollow inside. Injuries to tissue using such delicate needle does not occur. But such an operation is recommended as an additional correction and is intended for patients who have excess body fat is negligible.
