Liposuction surgery

Liposuction is a procedure in which a hollow cannula is inserted through a small incision to remove fat using tubing connected to a suction machine. Liposuction can be performed on many areas, including the abdomen, sides, and upper and lower back, among others.

One of the misconceptions about liposuction is that it can tighten your skin. Liposuction’s main goal is to suck fat. “Lipo” means “fat” and “suction” means “sucking”: that is where the word comes from. When we do liposuction, the only substances you see coming through the tubing are fat, fluid, and blood. The liposuction cannula does not remove skin.

So, what does this mean? It is true to some extent that skin may tighten after liposuction, but this is in a minority of patients. These are patients who take care of themselves. They exercise a lot and they have stubborn fat they cannot get rid of through diet. In most patients, liposuction does not do anything with the skin. Although the skin retracts due to the inflammation from the surgical procedure, the amount of retraction is not sufficient to tighten the skin.

Many patients who come for consultation for aesthetic enhancement have stretch marks from pregnancy, or their skin elasticity has been damaged by weight gain and loss. In this situation, liposuction actually will make your belly look lumpy, bumpy, and uneven: the belly will shrink in size, but the skin envelope will not. Why? Let’s take a look at this diagram. Assume that the circle is your body and the red is the skin. Inside, the yellow is the fat. After liposuction, the yellow shrinks significantly, depending on how aggressive the surgeon is, but if you notice, the outside circle, which is the skin envelope, stays the same. It is impossible for the skin envelope to fit the smaller body—in this case, the small yellow circle. For this reason, whenever you have liposuction and there is excess skin, your belly will look very uneven, as the amount of skin is way too much for the new body.

If you request liposuction, you need to understand that how your belly looks will depend on your skin tone and your anatomy. If your skin tone is poor and you have a lot of excess skin, then you cannot expect a tight bikini-ready body. Certainly, your belly will be smaller, but aesthetically, the skin will not redrape to your satisfaction. Now, on the other hand, if you have good skin tone with a localized pocket of fat and you have liposuction, the skin will retract, your belly will look tight, and you will be ready to wear any clothes you desire.

Understanding liposuction and its limitations when it comes to skin tightening is crucial for two reasons:
1. Choose the procedure that will make your body look the best.
2. Enhance your abdomen or any part of your body to meet your aesthetic needs.
