Liposuction is cosmetic surgery in which unwanted body fat is removed. It is generally done on those areas of the body where fat usually tends to collect, such as the thighs, buttocks, hips and tummy. Liposuction can permanently remove fat cells but it does not prevent you from putting on more weight. The effects of a liposuction are reversed if you gain weight after the procedure.

Are there different types of Liposuction procedures and how long do they take?

There is only one general way a liposuction is performed and hence there are no different ways to perform it. The only difference is the type of anesthesia administered. According to what works best for you, your doctor will recommend local anesthesia, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.

Before the procedure, your doctor will ask you to refrain from consuming certain substances, which can include aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs, contraceptive pills, and smoking. The consumption these substances have to be stopped two to three weeks before surgery. If you are anemic, your doctor will also ask you to take iron supplements.

The first step of the procedure is to prepare the area where liposuction is to be performed. A mixture of anesthesia, salt solution and epinephrine is injected into the body to reduce blood loss and swelling. In certain cases, the preparation can also include breaking down of fat so that is easier to remove.

Once prepared, a small cut is made in the area that is to be treated. If it’s a larger area, then several cuts will need to be made. A small tube called the microcannula is inserted through the incision, which has a special vacuum attached to it. This then starts suctioning out fat from the body.

The procedure usually lasts from one to three hours, depending on the area that is to be treated. An overnight stay is not usually needed, but if you have been given general anesthesia, then you are required to stay the night for observation.

What is the recovery time and side effects?

After the surgery, there will be several bruises around the area that was treated and you will also experience some numbness. The bruising can last up to six months. If you also have pain, your doctor will prescribe pain killers. You will have stitches, which should be removed a week after the surgery. You will be a given a support garment to wear after your stitches are removed and you will have to wear this for at least three to four weeks.

You will get back to normal within a week if you had a smaller area treated. It can take almost ten days to recover from a larger operation. In total, it takes two weeks to fully recover from liposuction. The results of the procedure will take time to become apparent, sometimes even taking six months for the area to settle down. You can experience swelling, swollen ankles, scars and inflammation of the treated area as some of the side effects of the procedure.
