Liposuction Procedure Proved to be the Best Alternative for Arti Dahiya – A Medical Student
Almost every other person is looking for body contouring options, and Ms Aarti Dahiya (Name Changed) is one of them. Being a medical student, she knew about Dr Priya Bansal. Hence, she consulted her for the Liposuction procedure and got her dream body.
She has documented her journey in this case study. Keep reading to know why she opted for the surgery, the doubts she pointed out during her consultation, and the drastic change she experienced three weeks after the Liposuction surgery.
“Liposuction Helped me in Regaining My Self-Confidence…”
It is a blessing for me to be a medical student as I am always updated on what is new in the medical field. Before starting on anything, I would emphasise that I’m not overweight, and I’ve never been overweight, but I’ve always had fat in undesirable areas. It’s a frequent false belief that surgeon uses liposuction to lose weight. However, that is not the case. It’s more suited when you’ve reached your optimum weight but still need to sculpt your desired shape.
I was ecstatic to know that one of the experienced surgeons like Dr Priya Bansal will be performing my surgery. I felt secure in putting my entire reliance on her when my body shaped my aspirations.
The pre-op appointment was a little distressing for me. I’ve never felt completely at ease in western attire, so having my stomach exposed for everyone to view, criticise, and comment on made me feel awkward.
Dr Priya Bansal soon put me at ease. She appeared to be staring at my tummy as if she was solving some dramatic mystery. I watched her drawing a map and a tactical approach on my stomach as if she could foresee precisely what my problems were and how to fix them.
The Important Stage While Contemplating Getting Surgery…
One of the major decisions while considering surgery is choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon with a well-equipped operating centre for Liposuction surgery in Delhi.
The next step is to know how to prepare for the surgery.
Since I was taught how to prepare for any operation, I was aware of preventive measures. However, it is a plastic and cosmetic surgical procedure; I adhered to the pre-operative measures mentioned by Dr Bansal to have safe surgery.
After analysing my current medical health, medical history, and current medications, Dr Bansal prepared a list of what I am supposed to do in my preparation period.
- Blood test to find health problems, if any
- No smoking for two weeks pre-surgery and post-surgery to avoid the complications
- Stop all the supplements I had been taking
- Stop green tea 1 week before and after surgery
My Understanding of the Liposuction Surgery
Being a medical student, I’ve always been curious to study new things that keep coming up in the medical field. It is booming every day with the advent of new approaches to making the surgeries safe for the patients to increase the trust factor between surgeon and the patient.
As per my understanding, the liposuction procedure is one of those safe and advanced surgeries. It aims at eliminating the excess and unwanted fat from the different body regions.
Surgical Procedure Performed on Me
Dr Bansal used PAL, UAL and Radiofrequency techniques in the high-def liposuction procedure. Her purpose behind using this was to increase the safety factor to give more accurate and satisfactory outcomes.
Since I was worried about the scars after incisions, Dr Priya Bansal made a well-designed incision at the fatty area’s location. She used minor incisions to hide the scars while remaining small. She used procedures that helped her in removing extra fat easily through the tiny incisions.
I had faith in the techniques used by Dr Bansal and her years of expertise.
Recovery was My Major Concern!
One of my crucial queries was regarding recovery during my first consultation. I was allowed to go home the same evening after my surgery. Dr Priya enlightened me with a few potential complications that one can face after any surgery. Nevertheless, I was always in contact with her. Therefore, I had an easy and safe recovery period.
Following were the minor complications I faced post-surgery:-
- I was experiencing minor pain for the first three days. However, Dr Bansal prescribed me painkillers in case of severe pain.
- I had swelling which increased after 2-3 days, but this was mostly gone by 2 months.
- I was able to do the regular routine activity that I like to do every day- which was the plus point of my recovery period
- I was advised to constantly wear a compression garment for six weeks else it could have hindered my surgery results
Since I am a medical student, I am well aware of how important it is to adhere to the post and pre-operative guidelines to have a safe and risk-free outcome. I will never regret choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr Priya Bansal for my surgery since she helped me enhance and regain my self-confidence.
