Liposuction

Fat deposits are found in areas that can be resistant to diet and exercise, such as the face, neck, breast, abdomen, upper arm, hips, thighs, knees, and ankles. Liposuction or liposculpture carefully removes unwanted subcutaneous fat from the areas of concern with a special surgical instrument attached to a suction machine. The goal is to create a more aesthetically appealing body and is, therefore, not a treatment for obesity or weight loss.

Liposuction can be performed on multiple areas of the body at the same time. The recovery period averages seven to ten days and physical activities should be reduced for the first two weeks. The final result might not be evident until approximately six months after the surgery, as during this time the body re-balances fluids, and remodels and reshapes underlying tissue and skin. Final results will also depend on proper nutrition, exercise, and decreased caloric intake. The patient may have to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling, bruising, and discomfort and to assist in the retraction of any loose skin.

Liposuction is performed under local or conscious sedation. The incisions are small and heal with minimal scarring. Some blood-tinged drainage is expected during the first days. You can resume normal physical activities within four weeks of post-surgery.
