Liposuction is the operation which is applied to patients who do not suffer from problems such as obesity but cannot lose weight in the traditional ways such as diets. It is used to remove excess fat tissue and regained to the body in better ways through surgical methods. It mostly applied to areas such as knees, stomach, hips and back.

This procedure is applied only to people who do not have any systematic health issues, who are not pregnant or who has not given birth recently. Those suffering from heart conditions, diabetics and such go through certain tests to access risk factors. If deemed appropriate for liposuction, certain measures are taken to avoid complications.

The Process Of The Operation

The area with the excess fat tissue is inflated using a special liquid injection. Later on, an incision which is not larger than a few millimetres are made on this area or the surrounding area. Metal pipes are inserted through these incisions and tied to a vacuum device. The process continues until the desired skin surface is achieved. Local anaesthesia and sedation are preferred as a combination. Depending on the area, the surgery takes between one to five hours. It is possible to be discharged the same day or the next day.

Liposuction does not mean you will be immune to gaining weight. In order to avoid weight gain, the patient has to adapt to a healthy lifestyle with diets and exercise. With patients who gain and lose weight too frequently, liposuction is not the best option. If there is sagging in certain areas, liposuction does not cure this nor does it help rid you of cellulites.

Post-op Liposuction

Specially made corsets are used post-op. These corsets are used between four to eight weeks, depending on the amount of fat tissue removed from the patient. Swelling is expected but heals over time. After one week, stitches are removed and after three weeks, the patient can return to their regular lives. Once the three-to-four-week period passes, the patient can return to normal exercises.
