Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world and involves the removal of fat cells from your body. It may be performed by itself or in conjunction with other procedures, such as Facelift or Tummy Tuck.
If you have specific areas of fat deposits and have not been able to eliminate them through diet, exercise and weight loss programs, you should consider Liposuction.
WHO SHOULD CONSIDER THIS TREATMENT?
If dieting and exercise have not delivered results for you, there are other ways to get rid of stubborn, unsightly bulges.
In women, those fat deposits occur most frequently from the waist down, on hips, buttocks and outer thighs.
On men, fat tends to accumulate above the waist, on the abdomen and sides of the waist (love handles) or around the breasts.
In all cases, Liposuction is an effective and safe procedure to remove fat from the body.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
- Length of Procedure : 1-3 hours
- Anaesthesia : General anaesthetic or light sedation (twilight anaesthesia) and local anaesthesia
- Inpatient / Outpatient : Day case or 1-night stay
- Time of work : 3+ days
- Getting back to normal/sport : 2+ weeks. Full recovery from swelling and bruising may take one to six months depending upon the amount of fat removed and the areas treated.
From clothes that are too tight to styles that look great, you will notice the difference within 1 to 3 weeks after treatment. What’s more, improvement continues for up to six months.
Weight loss may be minimal because fat does not weigh much. The difference will be seen primarily in the way your clothes fit you. You will lose inches and look slimmer. But bear in mind that Liposuction is not an answer to weight problems.
