About Liposuction

Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove fat from beneath the skin. The procedure is performed with a narrow suction device. Some devices use ultrasound to help break down fat. Liposuction can be used to target a range of areas, including abdomen, hips, thighs, calves, arms, buttocks, back, neck, or face.

Liposuction can target stubborn, unwanted fat deposits in patients who are slightly overweight or who have a normal weight, but have fat build-ups in one area. Liposuction is not recommended as a treatment for obesity, as surgeons can only remove a limited amount of fat.

Before Liposuction abroad

Patients are advised to make small lifestyle changes in the weeks leading up to the surgery in order to aid recovery. This includes quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption and avoiding aspirin and other medications that can cause the blood to thin.

How is it performed

Liposuction is performed through small incisions. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the surgeon may make one or several small incisions to reach the target areas. A small suction tube is inserted through the incisions and fat is suctioned away from beneath the skin using the sharp end of the device.

Once the procedure is completed, the surgeon may leave the incisions open and surgical drains may be attached to prevent a build up of fluid in the area. Other surgeons may partially close the sutures and then apply a dressing which will need to be changed often.

Many patients who undergo liposuction choose to combine this with other surgeries such as an abdominoplasty or body lift.

Anesthesia

Normally general anesthetic, occasionally local anesthetic.

Procedure duration

The Liposuction takes 1 to 2 hours.

If large areas are being treated, the procedure may take longer.

Liposuction
An incision is made and a suction device is inserted to vacuum the excess fat out of the body.

What to expect after Liposuction

Post procedure care

Depending on the amount of liposuction, patients may be discharged, or may stay overnight in hospital. Patients should rest and keep the wounds clean, avoiding swimming or sunbathing.

The doctor may offer special compression clothing to wear, and may prescribe antibiotics. When the anesthesia wears off, there may be some pain and patients should ask the doctor about which painkillers are appropriate. The incisions are usually small, resulting in minimal scarring.

Patients should seek travel advice from their treating doctor, however, in general it is recommended to wait at least 7 days before flying and to take precautions against deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

Possible discomfort

Numbness, tingling and discomfort are common following liposuction, as well as some swelling and bruising. Most patients find these symptoms subside after a week, and the final results are visible after 4 to 6 weeks.
