"Why limit oneself to sucking up fat when it is possible to sculpt and rebuild a body section, as when working with marbles". (Dr Marco Gasparoti, Italian plastic surgeon)
Liposculpture or liposuction has come a long way in the past decade – offering much more than simply removing excess fat. More advanced procedures allow a good surgeon to mold the skin and underlying tissue to re-sculpt body parts and create more harmonious curves to the overall body shape.
Laser liposculpture or liposuction is the latest advancements in lipoplasty techniques. Its main advantage is not only it removes resistant fat but also it works on skin tightening, where you have less bruising and quicker recovery.
We introduce a laser beam into the area to be treated, we choose the wavelength that is specific for fat to do lipolysis (924nm, 1064nm). Then we aspirate the melted fat, afterward, we introduce laser probe with wavelength specific for skin tightening (975nm, 1320nm).
At Dr. Hussein Hashim clinic in Lebanon, we perform most liposculpture and liposuction procedures as day surgery, either under general anesthesia or other forms of sedation.
Laser liposuction has immediate results however final tightening will be after 6 months. The result can be maintained if the patient keeps to a balanced lifestyle and diet.
Cellulite have several causes starting by quality of skin, hormonal changes ,dietary causes ,and excess fat. By doing Liposculpture Dr. Hussein Hashim treats up to 50% of cellulite, the rest needs other types of treatment one is promising which is mesocellulite where phosphotidyle choline (soya extract) is injected in area, it have good results because it acts on areas 1 cm under the skin where liposculpture cannot reach. Some machines that can do massage and have infrared can also improve cellulite.
You are the ideal candidate for liposuction; what you are describing is resistant fat that is not secondary to over weight but genetic in origin where this kind of fat distribution runs in your family. If we aspirate these fat stores they will not come back because human body cannot regenerate fat cells.
Dr. Hussein Hashim do not expects any result in first week because of swelling, you will start seeing results in the second week, in one month time you will have 50% of the result that will take up to 6 months to have the final results.
Dr. Hussein Hashim advices his patients to wear the garment for six weeks post operation. This will decrease swelling and allow the skin to retract and body to reshape.
Tumescent liposculpture technique is , when we inject the area with excess fat with a special solution before aspiration, that will decrease blood loss and facilitate aspiration of fat, and this will reduce post operative bruising, swelling and, pain.
Human body has at puberty a fixed amount of fat cells, and after wards your body cannot regenerate new fat cells. What we aspirate is resistant fat cells that will not go easily when you do exercise or diet, the fat you add up when you over eat is of the non resistant type. So Dr. Hussein Hashim aspirates resistant fat that cannot return and if you add up weight these extra fat will deposit in other stores that are not resistant and you can loses then quickly. In short the deformity that is treated cannot recur even if you add weight.
