Body fat can be classified into two sections.  One is superficial fat (label 2 in above picture).  Superficial fat is located under skin in whole body.  The other is deep fat (label 4 in above picture) which is located in some specific portion.  Green areas in below picture marked the location of deep fats in female.  Superficial fat can be thinner by body weight loss.  The most effective way to thinner deep fat is liposuction surgery.

Liposuction, aslo known as lipoplasty, liposculpture suction lipectomy or simply lipo, is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat on human body.

Below pictures showed the procedure of liposuction.  Through tiny wounds, liposuction cannula (a hollow tube) is inserted into fat layer.  Aspirator (suction device) provide negative pressure which sucks out fat (below left picture).  Before liposuction, a lot of fluid with hemostatic drugs is injected into fat layer (so called "superwet" or "tumescent" method).

Below A is picture before tumescent method.  B is picture showed tumescent technique.  Using tumescent technique, blood loss caused by liposuction can be reduced dramatically.  The fat which can be sucked out in one section can be up to 3,000 ml.

Case 1: liposuction of hip and thigh.

Case 2: liposuction on lower abdomen.

Case 3: liposuction of arm.

Case 4: liposuction of circumferential thigh.

Case 5 : liposuction of abdomen and thigh in one section.

Case 6: liposuction on hip and thigh.

There are other technology other than liposuction machine.
(1) Laser lipolysis:
The laser is administered through a fiber threaded through microcannula. In surgery, laser light which can destroy fat cell is transmitted in light optical fiber. Fat would be "melt" by laser light. The destroyed fat could be sucked out by liposuction machine. The laser lipolysis takes time to process. For patients with thick fat, it is not effective than liposuction machine.
(2) Water jet:
In the process of water jet liposuction, massive fluid will be injected into fat layer than tumescent technique. The basic process is similar with liposuction machine. Dr. Jong thinks the result of liposuction is related with experience and technique, not related with the machine. Modern machine can lead to disaster if surgeon is not experienced to use the modern machine.
(3) Coolscupting or external ultrasound.
There is some non-invasive technique to reduce fat thickness. These machines reduce fat in some way, but the most effective way to reduce fat thickness in one section is iposuction.
  • Q: I heard that fat is good or bad, and the fat taken from thighs will survive higher than fat from the other parts. Is it true? Is there a way to change my breasts from small B to small C by one section of fat transfer? When I touch my post-operation breasts, the feeling is the same as real breasts ?
    A: There was no study to show the better places to harvest fat. In order to have a better survival and prevent complication, the amount of fat injected on the side of breast is about 100-200cc at one section of treatment Because part of the fat will be absorbed, one section of fat injection may upgrade about half a cup. The breasts after fat transfer feel natural as real breasts.

    Q: My breasts is not small but sagged after delivery. Do fat transfer improve my sagging? Presently my breasts is big D. I want to use the fat from thighs and abdomen.
    A: One of the treatment methods for sagging breasts is breast augmentation, which can be done with fat transfer. The advantage is that small incisions are made. But if the sagging is severe, excision of breast skin and then associated scar is unavoidable.

    Q: Will I get obese when the fat is absorbed?
    A: In histology, it should be said that the fat cells placed on the breasts become smaller or not survive. The fat cells will not go to the other places on your body. You will not get obese due to fat transfer.

  • 1. If needed, you can take painkillers, one capsule at a time, for wound pain. One capsule every 4-6 hours.

    2. Remove the nursing pad and gauze the next morning. If the wound is closed, no treatment is needed. If it is not closed, apply OK bandage on the wounds after applying iodine. If the wounds are all closed, you can take a bath.

    3. Two to three days after the operation, the liposuction site might be painful. At this time, rest as much as possible and move less, and the pain will gradually improve. 

    4. There will be bruising at the liposuction site, and it will go away on its own after one to two weeks.

    5. Wear compression garment for 24 hours (unless garment is cleaned) and continue to wear them for three weeks.
    ※ You can choose to wear only 12 hours a day in the second and third weeks.
    6. The result of liposuction is usually stable until three months.
