Why is it done?
Liposuction is a procedure that removes fat from body parts that haven’t responded to diet and exercise, such as the:
- Arms (upper)
- Ankles and calves
- Back and chest
- Thighs and hips
- Neck and chin
Additionally, liposuction can be utilized for breast reduction or gynaecomastia treatment.
Fat cells expand in size and volume as you gain weight. Liposuction, as a result, reduces the amount of fat cells in a given area. The amount of fat removed is determined by the look of the area as well as the amount of fat present. As long as your weight is stable, the subsequent contour modifications are usually permanent.
What to Expect from a Liposuction?
The procedure of liposuction necessitates the use of anesthetic. This implies you won’t experience any discomfort during the liposuction procedure. However, you will have discomfort following the surgery. Recovery can be a difficult process.
You may have a shorter or longer hospital stay depending on which regions of your body require liposuction. Some operations can be performed in a clinic setting. Pain, swelling, bruising, discomfort, and numbness are frequent side effects of liposuction.
After the Procedure
After the operation, you should expect some pain, swelling, and bruising. Your doctor may give pain relievers as well as antibiotics to limit the chance of infection. The surgeon may leave your wounds open and insert temporary drains to promote fluid drainage after the procedure. For a few weeks, you’ll need to wear tight compression garments to assist minimize swelling. You may need to wait a few days to return to work and a few weeks to resume your regular activities, including exercise.
Expect minor contour inconsistencies during this period as the residual fat settles into place.

- Inconsistencies in the contour
