Liposuction is a surgically procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, chest, back, neck or neck. Liposuction also shapes (contours) these areas. Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring.
Liposuction isn't typically considered an overall weight-loss method or a weight-loss alternative. If you're overweight, you're likely to lose more weight through diet and exercise or through bariatric procedures — such as gastric bypass surgery — than you would with liposuction.
You may be a candidate for liposuction if you have too much body fat in specific spots but otherwise have a stable body weight.
Fat will not return (and ideal results will remain intact) if the patient maintains their "post-lipo weight". In cases of considerable weight gain (i.e. 10% of their body weight); new fat cells can develop in all areas of the body, including treated areas. However, since new fat cell creation typically occurs in an even manner throughout the body, fat often accumulates less in treated areas compared to untreated areas. Thus many liposuction patients who gain considerable post-procedure weight tend to still look better than if they did not undergo liposuction.
In reference to the size of the liposuction this surgery type is performed as both: an outpatient and inpatient procedure and with both: local or general anaesthesia. Depending on the condition of the patient and again on the size of the procedure a 1 night overstay at the hospital is may required.
The post-operational process including recovery and expectable operative consequences varies as well as the process may show differences in general and/or detail from patient to patient. The general recovery for most patients of good health and expectable operative consequences are listed as follows. Please notice that the general recovery and/or expectable operative consequences are not limited to the mentioned below.
Mild to moderate pain, swellings and bruising after the procedure. Maybe open incisions for temporary drains to promote fluid drainage.
Usually tight compression garments are suggested to be used for a couple of weeks, to support the reduction of swellings. Within several months, the treated area will have a leaner appearance.
May be a couple of days off-time from job is needed. It is expected to be able to get back to normal daily routine after a couple of weeks, depending on the size of Liposuction done.
You should schedule at least the number of days starting from the day of surgery before returning to your home country suggested by the surgeon after consultation, as the post-operative monitoring of your health varies with the size of the procedure.
