A procedure introduced in the United States in 1982, liposuction can remove localized collections of tiny fatty tissue in many areas of the body. By using a high vaccum device, the surgeon can suction fat from the legs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, back, arms, face and neck.

The popularity of liposuction is due to the effectiveness of the technique (in the hands of a qualified surgeon) and the fact that it leaves only tiny scars, often less than one-half inch in length.Liposuction is neither a substitute for proper diet and exercise nor a cure for obesity. To get the most from this procedure, you should be of average weight with extra fat localized in specific areas. It is also important that you have healthy, elastic skin with the capacity to shrink evenly after surgery. Since liposuction removes only fat, it cannot eliminate dimpling or correct skin laxity. The tumescent technique, superficial liposculpture, ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) or other variations of conventional liposuction may be recommended by your surgeon., depending on the specific needs and the surgeon’s preferred methods of treatment.If your skin has lost much of its elasticity, your plastic surgeon may recommend a skin tightening procedure (abdominoplasty, thigh lift, buttock lift or arm lift). These procedures are effective but leave more extensive scars.

Following surgery, you will wear a snug dressing or garment, possibly up to several weeks, to promote skin shrinkage and to minimize swelling and skin discoloration.

If you have had surgery below the waist, you may be advised to wear a long-legged girdle for a few weeks as you resume your normal routine.

Vaser Liposuction

Vaser or Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance is the trade name for an ultrasound-assisted liposuction system. During Vaser liposuction procedure, fatty tissues are extracted from your body by using sound waves. These sound waves emulsify targeted fat cells. The sound energy gets transmitted through small probes. These sound waves enter the holes and vibrate rapidly to produce ultrasound energy. This energy that penetrates inside your body breaks the cellular membrane and discharges the lipid content.
Vaser liposuction has the advantages of lower blood loss & improved skin retraction & is being offered at the Image Medical Center

Re-discover your Face with Own Cells

Ever wished that the face staring back at you from that mirror did not have wrinkles or sagging skin, drooping eyebrows or eye bags, the horrible dark circles and the always-been there senile spots on an increasingly dulling skin?

With changing times, roles for women have undergone a major shift.  Not that it has in any way reduced the pressures of everyday life. Rather, increased expectations from every single minute.  But, what do you crave for in the midst of all the chaos? To catch a glimpse of your-self and know everything is fine, right?.

If you have tried all methods to bring back the glow to your skin or retaining the freshness which you had during your youth or envy the ever youthful celebrities and have failed or just tired of it, please read on.Others may also read on because for the first time you will be able to defy age and turn the age clock with the help of your own cells.

‘Cell Enriched Facial Rejuvenation’, a procedure launched by Cytori Therapeutics, offers a new natural approach to restoring a youthful appearance to your face. Physicians around the world are recognizing that the youthful appearance of the face is not restored by tightening the skin alone, but by addressing the soft tissue volume of your face. Cell-Enriched Facial Rejuvenation reverses many tell-tale signs of aging by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, restoring soft-tissue volume and correcting slight imperfections. Early clinical experience has suggested that facial rejuvenation with fat tissue also improves skin texture and tone while minimizing discoloration.

During the procedure, fat is removed from your stomach, hips, thighs or another area of your body via liposuction. A portion of this removed fat is processed to extract the stem and regenerative cells that naturally reside within your tissue. The cells are combined with the remaining fat tissue to form a cell-enriched fat graft that can be used as a natural filler. The cell-enriched graft is then carefully delivered into the desired areas on the face.

The use of the stem and regenerative cells in the graft allows the transplanted fat to successfully integrate with the surrounding tissue. With no risk of rejection, the use of a cell-enriched fat graft in facial rejuvenation is both safe and minimally invasive

Is it Right for Me?
This procedure is ideal if you want to reverse the common signs of aging on your face with no risk or rejection and minimal risk of scarring. Using only your own tissue as a filler, the implanted fat becomes a natural part of your face, continually changing as your body naturally ages and evolves.

Cell-Enriched Facial Rejuvenation works wonders if:

You want to reverse signs of aging such as wrinkles and soft tissue volume loss

You seek a more youthful appearance for your face
