November 18, 2019 by Dr. Sandeep Bhasin

Many of us may not be aware of what is flanks plastic surgery. Flanks also known as love handles or sides fat are not so lovable. And when land in, there’s sadly no getting away from them. In fact, liposuction flanks and abdomen are Dr. Sandeep Bhasin’s most common liposuction areas for both female & male patients. Regardless of gender, the specialist offers effective means of giving fat-free contour to your flanks. He artistically performs lipo on flanks so that your flanks stay slim and in shape for years to come.

Liposuction is a medical treatment that is useful for sculpting and improving the appearance of specific areas of the body, especially those areas that contain a lot of fat. Of all the areas of fat accumulation within the body, the flanks are the most common ones. By means of flexible and versatile liposuction treatment in Delhi, candidates can witness a drastic change in their physique or figure. Liposuction is quite an effective treatment that yields good results and guarantees satisfaction.

What is Male Flanks?

The Male Flanks are situated just above the crest of the hip bone. The male flanks are nothing but an area where excess fat bulges over the belt line. As a result, it spoils the overall appearance and causes inconvenience while wearing pants with tight belts. These bulging fats appear bigger, when viewed from behind since the largest bulk of the make flank has the propensity to be located towards the back.

What is Female Flanks?

The female flanks refer to the areas below the strap of the inner and below the blades of the shoulders. Such flanks are a sign of being overweight. Liposuction is a such area that is most popular among ladies.

How is Liposuction Performed for Treating Flanks?

The basic liposuction method has been refined over the years to offer more convenience, comfort, and predictable results accompanied by a quick recovery. It is also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture, or lipectomy. Depending on the condition of the patient and the kind of clinic, there are varieties of liposuction techniques and surgical tools.

Liposuction has the ability to make the flanks and other isolated bulging areas smooth and small, matching space with the rest of the body. There are small incisions that have been exclusively made for inserting a cannula, thanks to anesthesia. The thin long and rigid tube, which spans 1 to 3mm in diameter, is ideal for creating suction, thereby removing fat cells permanently. During this, good care is taken to enhance the shape and reduce the size of the flanks on both sides of the body.

As the fat gets removed gradually, a smooth line and soothing figure are sure to be achieved by candidates. The remaining tissue in the flanks is finely blended and contoured into the nearby regions. Once a sufficient amount of fat is removed, surgeons blend in the smaller flank areas. They do so effortlessly along with adjacent areas of the body such as hips, back, and sides for a more natural look.

Who is a Good Candidate for Undergoing Liposuction in Flanks?

An ideal candidate for liposuction is a person who is healthy with firm and elastic skin. The person must have isolated pockets of fatty tissues in specific areas like flanks. However, if the person is prone to poor circulation, diabetes, lung and heart disease, there are higher chances of complications.

What are the Risks Involved in the Procedure?

  • Although the treatment effectively eliminates fat from the flan regions, it leads to future weight gain since fat that gets reduced from certain areas gets accumulated in other regions by enlarging existing fat cells.
  • There are post-treatment complications that happen to anyone. Soon after the treatment, patients are more likely to have blood clots. In order to avoid clotting, patients can move around immediately after their surgery, however with consent from the doctor.
  • At times, there is a loss of sensation, which lasts up to a year. It is temporary.
  • Patients must look for signs and symptoms that are indicative of any infection. High fever is the most common symptom. In case there is an infection, patients will be provided with antibiotic medication and drainage.
  • Poor healing leaves behind scars, which calls for another operation.
  • If patients witness any kind of unusual symptoms or health disorders, they must report immediately, without waiting for the next appointment. This also helps in reducing stress and slows down the healing process.
  • Candidates must not smoke, after undergoing the treatment. It is because smoking increases further complications and causes a delay in healing.

What are the Qualities and Attributes to Look for, Before Selecting a Surgeon?

The ultimate result of flank liposuction depends on the technique and the surgeon. Slight changes in the size and shape of the flanks can bring about drastic differences in overall physique or figure.

Therefore, prior to opting for such treatments, candidates must do good research and then select the most appropriate surgeon for flank liposuction. The main things to look for in a surgeon are as follows:

  • An ideal surgeon is one who inquires about the patient’s goals and objectives behind the treatment. Surgeons, who rush through the consultation or hardly give a patient hearing, are not the ideal ones for this treatment. The plastic surgeon must ask about medical history, health problems (if any), prescriptions of medicines being consumed, and current nutritional supplements and food habits.
  • The surgeon should have an aesthetic sensibility matching the patient. Patients must urge to show before-and-after pictures of past patients. Once they see these pictures, they can understand the level of the surgeon and the possible results that they can expect.
  • The patient should be quite comfortable with the surgeon and must assure that the surgeon has understood the purpose of treatment.
  • It is best advised to opt for highly experienced and professional ones. Since these surgeons have spent a long time in the industry, therefore they have a better understanding and overview of performing the treatment and getting safe results. While consulting with surgeons, patients can ask the number of years they have been performing liposuction.
  • Patients can ask any kind of question as desired. They must clearly watch out for the reactions within the surgeons, while they answer. If the medical practitioners carefully and calmly listen to woes and concerns and give a gentle reply, he/she is the right person for the treatment. On the contrary, if the surgeon escapes questions or gives half-hearted answers that is a bad choice.

With this, liposuction is quite beneficial for reducing unwanted bodies and guarantees good results post-treatment.
