Risks & How you Prepare

Possible complications specific to liposuction include:

  • Contour irregularities. Your skin may appear bumpy, wavy or withered due to uneven fat removal, poor skin elasticity and unusual healing. These changes may be permanent.
  • Fluid accumulation. Temporary pockets of fluid (seromas) can form under the skin.
  • Internal puncture. Rarely, a cannula that penetrates too deeply may puncture an internal organ.
  • Fat embolism.Pieces of loosened fat may break away and become trapped in a blood vessel and gather in the lungs or travel to the brain.
  • Kidney and heart problems. Shifts in fluid levels as fluids are being injected and suctioned out can cause potentially life-threatening kidney and heart problems.

The first step is to consult with your surgeon. Talk about your goals, the options, the risks and benefits, and the costs. Ask all your questions. If you decide to go ahead with liposuction, your surgeon will give you instructions on how to prepare for it. These may include diet and alcohol restrictions.

 

Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. Liposuction also shapes (contours) these areas. A plastic or dermatologic surgeon usually does the procedure on your hips, belly, thighs, buttocks, or face to improve their shape. But liposuction can also be done with other plastic surgeries, including facelifts, breast reduction, and tummy tucks.

Why it’s done?

Liposuction is used to remove fat from areas of the body that haven’t responded to diet and exercise, such as the:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Calves and ankles
  • Chest and back
  • Hips and thighs
  • Neck



What can you Expect & Results

Before your liposuction starts, your doctor might mark the areas of your body that will be treated. She may also take photos to use later for before-and-after comparisons. Next you’ll get general anesthesia — which means you will not be awake during the procedure — or a “local,” which means you will be awake but not feel any pain.

After liposuction, swelling typically subsides within about four weeks. By this time, the treated area should look less bulky. Within several months, expect the treated area to have a leaner appearance. Liposuction results are generally long lasting as long as you maintain your weight. If you gain weight after liposuction, your fat distribution may change.
