Suck that fat goodbye.
Liposuction is the surgical suctioning of fat deposits from specific parts of the body, the most common being the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, chin, upper arms, back, and calves. Liposuction is an option to remove small bulges that won’t budge and to improve your body’s shape. Liposuction does not remove cellulite, only fat.
Depending on the type of liposuction you are undergoing, the procedure may be performed as an outpatient procedure at the doctor’s office. If large amounts of fat are being removed, the procedure will be done in a hospital and may require an overnight stay.
Before the procedure begins, you will be given anesthesia. Depending on the degree of fat being removed and the type of liposuction being performed, anesthesia varies and may only be locally applied or it
may require a general application in which case the surgery will be done while you are sleeping.
Once the anesthesia has taken effect, the liposuction procedure is performed using a suction device attached to a small stainless steel instrument called cannula. Through small incisions, the cannula is inserted into fatty areas between skin and muscle where it removes excess fat either using a suction pimp or a large syringe.
This results in a smoother and an improved body con tour. The length of the procedure will vary with the amount of fat that needs to be removed. Under most circumstances, when liposuction’s is an outpatient procedure, recovery is usually quick. You should expect bruising, swelling ad soreness for at least a few weeks. However, every person’s outcome will vary based on factors such as volume of fat cells being removed and the area of removal.Your doctor will discuss what results you can expect to achieve and how to best maintain your new body shape.
