Liposuction or lipoplasty is a surgical treatment of fat removal from different parts of the body like arms, abdomen, buttock, hips, thighs, and neck. Liposuction uses method of suction to remove fat from the body and also helps to shape these areas. For suction, doctor insert a hollow instrument, also called as cannula in the desired area of the body to suck the fat.
For weight loss doctors will not do liposuction directly. If you are overweight then doctors will first recommend you to lose your weight through diet, exercise or through bariatric procedure like gastric bypass surgery. Once your weight will be in the recommended range for liposuction then only doctors will do liposuction surgery.
You can go for the liposuction surgery only if you have too much body fat in specific area with a stable body weight. If your body weight is not stable, then doing liposuction will not give you a desired result in long run. Chances are that you will again gain the weight.
Once surgery is done you can expect some pain, swelling and surgery mark. Your doctor well put you on medication to control the pain and to reduce the risk of infection. Doctor will also keep your incisions open and place temporary drains for fluid drainage.
Doctor will recommend you to wear tight clothes which will help to reduce swelling. It will take around few weeks to go back to your normal routine and resume your daily activities. It is very important that you maintain your weight to keep the result of liposuction long lasting. If you gain weight after liposuction, your fat distribution may change.
