Safest Liposuction @ GLOJAS!
Glojas Plastic Surgery Centre is located in an affluent residential area in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and has been in practice for more than 20 years under the founding CEO, Dato’ Dr.JasG.
Liposuction is done very frequently at Glojas, we have between 8 to 10 Liposuction procedures every week and its done by our in-house Plastic Surgeon, Dr.Mohd Ali. He is one of Malaysia’s leading Plastic Surgeons and Malaysia’s only fully qualified Craniofacial Surgeon.
Liposuction removes excess deposits of fat to sculpt an improved shape to a patient’s body. While liposuction is best known as a fat removal procedure, it is also one of the best procedures to help a patient refine his or her shape. In fact, cosmetic surgeons often use liposuction to refine the results of other procedures, as no other technique allows for such detailed improvements in body contour. Here at GLOJAS we use the latest, tested, safest and proved method of a ‘Water Assisted Liposuction.’
Is Liposuction Right for Me?
This will be determined by our In-House Plastic Surgeon who comes with 15 years of experience and is highly experienced and talented in Liposuction procedures which he does on a very regular basis. Dr.Mohd Ali is one of Malaysia’s Leading Plastic Surgeons and Malaysia’s ONLY Craniofacial Surgeon.
Both men and women undergo liposuction every year to achieve a variety of different goals. Some patients want to look better in a swimsuit, while others want to find jeans that fit more comfortably. For men, liposuction can often successfully treat gynecomastia. Cosmetic surgeons will often use liposuction to enhance the results of other procedures.
If one or more of the following apply to you, liposuction is an option to consider:
- I have excess fat deposits on my hips, belly, thighs, neck, chin, arms or chest that won’t respond to diet or exercise. Liposuction is excellent for reducing fatty bulges and sculpting a beautifully natural contour to the body.I feel like certain areas are out of proportion with the rest of my figure. Reducing excess fat on one area of the body can bring it into better balance with your natural features.
- I have good skin elasticity – sagging skin is not a problem for me. For optimal results, the skin should have good enough tone to contract to the body’s new contours.
- I am at or near my desired body weight. Liposuction is best for reducing localized fat deposits, and the most satisfied patients are typically happy with their overall weight before surgery.
However, it’s important to have realistic expectations about what liposuction can achieve. If any of the following apply to you, then liposuction may only offer limited success in helping you achieve your goals. Your cosmetic surgeon can recommend the options best suited to your needs.
- I have loose, sagging skin that I want to address. Since liposuction is designed specifically to target fatty tissue, it will not significantly improve the appearance of loose skin. Not to worry as we provide Tummy Tuck and also Laser Treatments for Skin Tightening.
- I want to lose a significant amount of weight. Liposuction can improve your shape, which can help you look thinner and healthier. While some overweight patients can benefit from the reshaping and contouring effects as it’s also motivates them to lose more weight and lead a healthier lifestyle. Yes, liposuction does provide a domino effect in the sense that you will experience significant weight loss whilst it motivates you to maintain a diet plan and change in lifestyle.
How Liposuction Works
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure and can be safely performed using local anaesthesia, intravenous sedation, or local anaesthesia, depending on the nature of the procedure. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend the anaesthesia method that is most appropriate for your needs.
Your cosmetic surgeon will make one or more small incisions near the treatment area. A cannula, or thin tube, is inserted through these incisions to loosen excess fat beneath the skin. Then, the fat is suctioned out. The entire procedure can take under an hour or up to 3 hours or longer, depending on the number of areas treated.
Today’s advanced liposuction techniques are designed to minimize swelling, trauma and discomfort, and when the procedure is performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon, recovery from liposuction can be remarkably quick. Many patients return to work just a few days after their procedures, depending on the physical requirements of their jobs and the extent of their procedures. While your cosmetic surgeon can prescribe pain medication, most patients find over the counter options more than enough to manage any post-operative soreness.
Your cosmetic surgeon may give you a compression garment to wear for a few weeks following surgery. This helps to minimize swelling and encourage optimal skin contraction. With proper care, scars should fade significantly over the months following surgery; in many cases, scars are barely visible after a year or so.
Results can last permanently with proper care
Liposuction removes fat cells from your body, and these fat cells will not grow back. However, it is important to maintain a stable weight to ensure that your new look remains optimal. If you gain a significant amount of weight in the future, your overall appearance is likely to change as your body stores excess fat in other locations.
When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, liposuction is a safe procedure and an excellent way to improve the shape of your body. The best way to decide if liposuction is right for you is to consult our qualified plastic surgeon.
Those keen in having a liposuction done must be aware on the safest method of liposuction and post liposuction issues, the safest and latest liposuction method is a technology called ‘Water Assisted Liposuction’ and must be done by a highly experienced Plastic Surgeon or General Surgeon and not a General Practitioner.
Once the procedure is done, patients will experience leakage for a week where excessive water mixed with fats and blood stains will be discharging and this is very much expected and common after a liposuction procedure. Patients will be called in for follow-ups for close check-ups and dressing. Swelling will take two weeks to subside and the results of fat loss will show in the first month. Full results will take at least four months to reflect.
The Compression garment is not an option but compulsory for 12 hours in a day for the next one month. Wearing your compression garment will help reduce the swelling and hasten the healing process. No exercises are allowed for one month after the procedure. Please keep in mind that final results may take six to twelve months and one is expected to live a very healthy lifestyle and maintain a strict diet after the liposuction procedure. Please take note that for those who experience loose skin after liposuction. Patients will be advised to purchase a course of Laser Skin Tightening sessions.
As with Fat Transfer procedures, this can be done immediately during the liposuction and yes, the full results will take four months to reflect and patients are advised to consume healthy fats such Avocados, Cheese and Full Cream Milk.
As for a Tummy Tuck procedure, it can only be done four months after the liposuction procedure. Patients must be aware that in most cases, a Tummy Tuck procedure would require a liposuction of the abdomen and flanks and then followed by a Tummy Tuck procedure four months later. Protocols mentioned must be strictly followed for safety to health and optimum results.
