What happens during Liposuction?

You will get some form of anesthesia, and your surgeon will decide what is best for you, and the extent of the work you are having done. Possibilities are that you may get local anesthesia that makes only the area affected numb, IV sedation will relax you deeply – you might sleep, or be in a twilight state, or you may have general anesthesia, and be totally asleep.

The safest and most common technique uses micro-cannulas, which are about 2.8mm, and allow for controlled and detailed work.

Fat cells are infused with saline/local anesthetic/adrenalin mix. This combo increases safety, eases the removal process and makes for a less uncomfortable recovery.

Lipo is usually an out-patient procedure, but sometimes you may have the option for an overnight hospital stay.

Lasers and ultrasound devices can assist in the micro-cannula liposuction procedure. Both the laser method and ultrasound (Ultrasound Cavitation) method work to dissolve the fat, making the tissue easier to extract via cannula.

How long will the procedure take to do?

Depending on the area (or areas) being worked, and the type of anesthesia selected for you by your surgeon, the surgery could take anywhere from two to seven hours.

What does the recovery process look like?

You will have to wear a compression garment for some time after the surgery, to provide support, help in pain and inflammation reduction. You’ll also want to take it easy at first.

Depending on the area you have done, you can return to work in about a week, get back to low impact exercise in about a month. At about 3 months you will start seeing your results improving, and at 6 months you will start to see the end results.
