Irina Bastyreva, a professional massage therapist, international expert in aesthetics, and the author of a patented technique of body sculpting is sharing her 15 years of experience in working with women who had already gone through or are about to undergo surgical correction of body fat.
According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) statistics data, the USA is a leader in the number of aesthetic plastic surgeries. As follows from the public opinion survey, every third woman had ever thought of liposuction as a quick way to get rid of excessive body fat.
Having a vast experience of work with women who had undergone liposuction, it might as well be spoken boldly that the gap between expectation and reality, which these patients have to face post surgery, is enormous.
Manual lipomodelling technique came as a result of gathered experience. It proves that post-surgical side effects can be decreased significantly and, in many cases, can become an adequate alternative to liposuction! You will be able to see the results, and this is, indeed, an absolutely safe method of application on the body.
To help women of all ages, I have created my technique which works upon the tissue without damaging it, and prevents potential negative consequences due to effect of natural lipolysis.
As opposed to liposuction, the manual lipomodelling technique is a painless method, which leaves no traces, bruises, or scars on the body. By means of intensive exposure, skin cover polishes up and vibrant blood flow stimulates synthesis of collagen and elastin resulting in tightened and lifted skin.
Even a highly qualified surgeon cannot guarantee absence of postoperative complications, whereas lipomodelling technique a priori does not imply bleeding or bruise formation.
Lipomodelling technique is unique, because it may be used in the three following focus areas:
1. Aesthetic correction of local fat deposits.
In fact, this is an alternative to surgery. The number of sessions and time required for the procedures strictly depends on the initial body condition and skin quality. The only possible downside of the procedure is absence of instant result. In average, it takes about two months of active work to obtain positive, observable changes on body contours. Nevertheless, there are a lot more benefits in a long-term exposure: quality of skin improves as weight decreases, and gradual reduction of sizes promotes consistent results.
2. Preparation to liposuction.
There may be categories of patients desiring to undergo liposuction and not willing to refuse this procedure.
This component of lipomodelling allows for preparation of tissue for surgery, thus reducing potential side effects. Preparation for liposuction is recommended to start one month before the actual operation. By applying lipomodelling technique, tissue elasticity improves, subcutaneous fat becomes more even, and in the process of liposuction fat mass breaks down and detaches easier, which, in its turn, mitigates side effects.
3. Liposuction recovery.
The truth is that surgical procedure of liposuction usually creates clusters of surplus lymphatic fluid. This causes significant swelling and a patient my get disappointed in her liposuction results. The proof that my lipomodelling massage technique is working is fairly simple; sparing massage of the areas of body where congestion and swelling is present restores elasticity of vessels of vascular and lymphatic system.
This massage technique works well and has proved successful after one course of therapy, which consisted of 12 sessions.
Lately plastic surgery has made a significant step forward, and doctors progress with developing less traumatic methods of liposuction; but even so, liposuction is still an intrusion into the internal environment of an organism and none of the doctors can forecast what side effects may occur after such interference.
The most frequent side effects from the experience of dealing with such patients would be:
- Loss of sensitivity in the area of liposuction exposure;
- Discoloration of skin cover;
- Visual asymmetry of body areas, presence of clots and hollows in remaining adipose tissue;
- Formation of “lipoid” stones;
- Abnormal overgrowth of adipose tissue in areas where fat has never formed before;
- Interference with venous outflow and severe swelling in the liposuction areas;
- Severe bruises and atonic skin stipulated by absence of subcutaneous tissue.
These are the basic consequences of liposuction; however, in practical work particular cases can be even more complicated.
Fairly large percentage of patients suffers these side effects, and any doctor will tell you that this is relatively normal.
Tissue irregularity results from inflammation and injury caused by surgical instrument used underneath the skin for removal of adipose tissue. Tunnels and channels created by surgical instrument become filled with fluid and swell because of both, fluid and residual fat. This fluid and residual fat tend to cause solid edema, which may last from one to three weeks after surgery. Lipomodelling technique helps to achieve efflux of fluid by carefully pushing it back into lymphatic vessels. This is also an example of what liposuction cannot do.
It is a fact that after liposuction, without massage, there is a risk of transformation of edema and inflammation into fibrosis, which will change the structure of tissue and become a continuous problem. The lipomodelling technique guarantees that you will achieve the best results from this procedure.
Currently my goal is to make lipomodelling technique a mainstream in body sculpting and to prove women that liposuction is not a panacea but an extremely traumatizing way of solving overweight problem. There is no need for looking into plastic surgery immediately when other, less radical methods of exposure are worth of trying.
