Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses the suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, butt , arms or neck.
What are the steps of the Liposuction Procedure ?
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, and general anesthesia. Our doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions. First, diluted local anesthesia is infused to reduce bleeding and pain , Then a thin hollow tube, is inserted through the incisions to extract excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.
After step 2, the incisions are closed and bandaged. Drains are placed in order to absorb the excess liquid remaining in the skin. It is recommended to wear compression garments for 3-4 weeks to prevent edema.
Your improved body contour will be apparent once the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside. Following your physician’s instructions is key to the success of your surgery. It’s important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.
