Whole body liposuction,
safety must be checked first
There is a social prejudice that obesity equals laziness, but in fact, obesity is a disease,
and it is a problem that cannot be easily overcome by being on a simple diet. It is also not easy to decide to undergo whole body liposuction for highly obese patients after countless efforts to change their lives in a healthy way, not just for a slim body.
Usually, there are vague concerns about whole-body liposuction at a time, in large volumes. It is not easy to find a place that can perform whole-body liposuction with one operation a day. However, if liposuction is performed seperately in multiple operations, precision and satisfaction may be decreased as the 2nd or 3rd surgery is performed while the swelling of the previous surgery remains. Therefore, if possible, it is better to do it all at once in consideration of body balance and satisfaction.
Nevertheless, the reason that liposuction is performed in several sessions is because the operation to remove 8000~10,000cc of fat at a time deteriorates the physical condition of the body. Rapid changes in various elements of the body, such as electrolytes and blood, can adversely affect the body. However, since these parts depend entirely on the skill and experience of the surgeon, it can be safely performed by a specialist with skilled know-how.
In other words, it is recommended to perform whole-body liposuction and large-capacity liposuction at once only if the procedure is performed in a place equipped with supportive systems to reduce bleeding and remove a large amount of fat, as well as an anesthesiologist residing and capable of controlling the patient’s condition. This large-capacity systemic liposuction is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 4 to 5 hours. After a day of hospitalization, the stitches are removed, and after 3 to 5 days, daily life is possible. You can visit the hospital about 2 times for massage, swelling and bruising care.
Dr.Jaesang Barn from Banobagi Plastic Surgery said “Whole-body liposuction is highly satisfactory, but it is necessary to decide whether the operation is by an experienced specialist as the operation range is wide and difficult.” He also advised “Since safe operation is also very important, it is recommended to choose a place that has conducted abundant clinical cases without incident.”
