Liposuction or Lipo contouring is a cosmetic surgery that helps in breaking fat from the body. It is conducted using a suction technique to remove fat from the body. It is also known as laser lipo body contouring or lipoplasty.
This surgery is conducted to remove fat from the body that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. You might be suitable for liposuction when you have stable body weight but too much body fat in some parts of the body. It helps in the fat reduction from abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, back & upper arms, calves and back. Sometimes, it is conducted to reduce fat from breasts too. It helps in the reduction of fat cells from the body giving a different texture to the skin.
The procedure depends on the specific technique being used. The various techniques are:
Depending on the type of surgery, local or general anaesthesia is given. In the case of lipo contouring on small areas, local anaesthesia is being given and if liposuction is to be done on the large area then general anaesthesia is given. The surgery may last up to 1 to 3 hour depending upon the area.
Pain, bruising and swelling is expected for a few days after surgery. A pressure garment is given to be worn after surgery. You might be prescribed to take rest for a few days before resuming physical activities and normal routine. Also, medications are being prescribed to reduce pain and infection.
Results are seen after a few weeks of surgery when the skin resumes its normal shape and looks less bulky. Also, it is recommended to maintain your weight for long term results.
