What You Need to Know About Liposuction

Liposuction is a plastic surgery that removes excess fat and reshapes the body. It is usually performed in areas such as arms, thighs, hips, abdomen, back or neck. Liposuction can also be performed alongside with tummy tuck or breast reduction operations.

Who Can Be a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction works best for the patients who are not overweight but have too much fat in some specific areas in their body which they can’t get rid of with diet or work-out. Liposuction is about reshaping your body by removing fat so it shouldn’t be considered a weight-loss surgery. Besides, liposuction won’t remove cellulite or stretch marks. Therefore you need to understand the procedure correctly and have the right expectations.

Since liposuction is a surgical process, it has some risks. Your doctor will ask you about your medical record. It is crucial to indicate if there are any medications you are taking or any allergies you have. Your surgeon will assess your condition and determine the medication you need to take after the surgery. He might ask you to stop taking some medications before the operation. 

In short, you will be a good candidate for liposuction surgery if you are in good health and have no condition that may cause a complication. Most of the surgeons don’t accept patients who smoke.

Is Liposuction a Painful Procedure?

Liposuction is a surgery often performed under general anesthesia. This means that you won’t feel any pain during the surgery. However, there will be pain after the surgery so be prepared for it. You may also experience swelling, bruises and soreness. But you can minimize the pain by taking prescribed medications and pain killers.

How Does Recovery Process Work After Liposuction?

Your doctor will prescribe antibiotics to reduce the infection risk, along with pain killers. S/he may recommend you to wear tight compression garments for a few weeks or 1 month to reduce swelling.

If you had been given general anesthesia, you are more likely to stay one night at the hospital. You will need to rest for at least one week after the surgery but you can go back to work or school afterward. You won’t be able to go back to your daily routines completely in the first two weeks, such as exercising or other strenuous works. You can contact us if you have any other personal questions.

Are the Results Permanent?

The fats cells are removed permanently in liposuction, but it doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to gain weight afterward. You need to be on a healthy diet and exercise regularly to keep your body in shape. The fat will not return if the patient stays in their ideal weight.
