One Reality TV show, The Swan, thrives on makeovers. Often viewed as tantamount to having a new life, a lot of people get giddy with thought of undergoing a makeover. Imagine being surrounded by aesthetics professionals brainstorming on how to make a deity out of an ugly duckling. Simply incredible, isn't it?
High on mirage of promise of exquisiteness lingers on mind. It's not until prick of needle for shots of anesthesia brings you back to your senses.
Elusive beauty is major objective of each makeover. With this goal in mind, technology gave birth to a way of achieving what's thought of as currently beautiful in form of plastic surgery. Liposuction is considered most popular procedure in United States for several years running. But liposuction is quite new to US.
Liposuction was invented in Italy by two gynecologists, Dr. Gorgio Fischer and his son Dr. Gorgio Fischer, Jr. in 1974. Through small incisions, they were able to cut away fat tissues within body. A rotating scalpel and suctions aided procedure. Though not as comparable to today's techniques, Drs. Fischer still deserve credit for liposuction.
Also known as lipoplasty and lipectomy, liposuction removes isolated pockets of fat from body of those who are of relatively normal weight. These fat pockets or cellulites could either result from overeating alone or as an inherited trait that can't be removed by dieting or exercise.
The liposuction market comes from actors frantic with weight loss failure or simply just anyone who can afford a cellulite-free life. Anyone interested with liposuction should be informed that liposuction, as a surgical procedure, is not risk free. Before going gaga over losing those pesky flabs, better consider following risks and complications that range from mild to potentially life-threatening.
Skin Sag. Removal of fat tissues in one area of body at once may result in loose skin, depending on skin's elasticity. Stretch marks hint poor skin elasticity. So you might want to look all over your body for stretch marks first before getting nicked.
