At times leading an active lifestyle along with taking a healthy diet is not enough and more often than not,  one has bulges of fat that are difficult to lose. If traditional methods of body shaping are not working out for you, then Liposuction is the procedure that one should consider. 

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction which combines two terms ‘Lipo’ meaning Fat and ‘Suction’ is a surgical fat reduction procedure wherein fat is sucked out of the targetted area of the body, thus removing it permanently. 

Liposuction is used to permanently remove excess fat from specific body parts such as the belly, thighs, arms and chin and is well-known as an effective fat reduction service.

It is an invasive surgery that is conducted under general anaesthesia. Though Liposuction surgery is not intended for weight loss, it does lead to weight reduction (though the figure may vary from client to client depending on the area under treatment).

While some results are perceptible immediately post-surgery, the full results from Liposuction surgery may not be noticeable for a few months. While most people choose to undergo Liposuction to address a certain specific part of the body, some clients may have multiple procedures for different parts of the body. 

How is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure that involves cutting, suction, stitching, and anaesthesia. While in certain cases, the surgical team may choose to use local anaesthesia for a certain spot, usually the client is sedated with general anaesthesia.

A plastic surgeon makes a small incision and uses a long, narrow suction tool, which is known as a cannula,  to vacuum fat out of a specific area of the body which is pre-decided. It is the ideal fat reduction service. 

Who can Get Liposuction Done?

Both men and women can improve their body’s appearance with Liposuction surgery. 

Doctors advise people with heart problems or blood clotting disorders, and pregnant women to avoid Liposuction as it could lead to serious complications.

How long does Liposuction take?

Depending on the size of the treated area, the surgery takes one to two hours. It is often done as in-patient surgery which means hospitalisation for a few days. The surgical procedure is often preceded by tests to determine whether the client is fit to undergo Liposuction. 

One has to continue staying in the hospital for a few days as part of the recovery process. To enhance the results of this unique fat reduction service, doctors usually recommend wearing a special bandage and limiting activities for a certain period. One may have to wait 2-4 weeks before resuming strenuous activities. 

Full results of Liposuction surgery may take several months to appear as the swelling takes time to subside. During the first few weeks after surgery, people who’ve had liposuction will experience swelling. This means that results aren’t immediately apparent, but one can generally see the final results within one to three months after Liposuction.

How is Liposuction Surgery Different from Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Procedures?

Most non-invasive and non-surgical methods of fat reduction like Low-Level Laser Therapy and HiFU, shrink or reduce the size of the fat cells. They cannot remove the fat from the body or reduce the number of fat cells in the body. 

In Liposuction, the fat is sucked out of the body and is hence destroyed or removed forever. Liposuction is the best fat reduction service for permanent removal of fat from the body. 

Is Liposuction Effective in Removing Fat Permanently?

Liposuction means ‘sucking out fat’ from within the body and is an effective way of removing or reducing fat from the body permanently. 

With Liposuction, the amount of fat that can safely be removed by doctors is recommended to be less than 5 litres in a single procedure.  The amount of fat removed varies from client to client and it is the prerogative of the operating surgical team which assesses how much fat can be safely removed from a client.  

What are the Results of Liposuction surgery?

Liposuction is remarkably effective when it comes to removing fat. 

Fat is removed from the targetted areas of the body only. This means that if a person asks for Liposuction from the stomach area, only that will be attended to. The fat at buttocks or arms or thighs will not be affected by Liposuction in that case. While it removes fat from a target area, Liposuction does not help in reducing fat in other areas of the body. 

Liposuction cannot stop the body from developing more fatty tissues in the future,  post-surgery. It is imperative that one follows an active lifestyle consisting of exercise and takes a healthy diet so that the body doesn’t have to store the extra calories as fatty tissues. 

Liposuction does not improve the appearance of cellulite or loose skin and is primarily known as a fat reduction service. 

What is the cost of Liposuction surgery?

While one cannot put a price on good health or improved appearance which is the result of Liposuction, the cost of surgery is higher than other non-invasive fat reduction procedures. The cost of Liposuction varies as it depends on which part or parts of the body one chooses to have treated. Broadly, the bill depends on the doctor fees, pre-operative tests, hospital stay, medicines and other ancillary charges.
