Liposuction

Liposuction is a procedure to permanently remove the subcutaneous fatty tissues from the areas not responding to diet and exercise. Liposuction also helps you in body sculpting, creating six-pack abs, and calf-shaping.

Liposuction procedure can be used for hips, thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, arms, face, chest, chin, and neck.

The following can opt for Liposuction:

  • If you have localized collections of excess fat resistant to diet and exercise.

  • If you want to change the contours of your body.

  • If you are near your ideal weight and want permanent contour changes.

  • If you desire permanent solution for your body contour abnormalities.

Expected Outcome

  • You will have enhanced contour.

  • Your contours will improve as the swelling subsides.

  • The results are permanent. But, increase in weight or obesity can lead to rippling of the skin in treated areas.

  • Liposuction doesn't treat obesity.

  • Fat gain post surgery will occur at the areas that are not treated.

Procedure

  • Liposuction procedure is carried on an outpatient basis under the influence of general anaesthesia.

  • The small and discreet incisions are made in the areas to be treated.

  • A microannula is inserted into the incisions and its other end is attached to a suction machine.

  • A limited amount of tissue can only be removed at a time in order to maintain a margin of safety.

Post Operation Care

  • You will be able to walk on the same day of the surgery

  • You will go home with a compression garment covering the treated areas

  • This compression is advised for three to four weeks and it assists in reducing the swelling

  • You will be able to resume your professional life in four to six days

  • You will observe the final results in two to three months.

  • You should avoid the sun rays till all bruising has subsided and used a sunscreen regularly.
