It is essentially suction of lipid or fat below the skin through small incisions and using a cannula and a suction device. A fluid is first injected in the fat to reduce the blood flow and dissolve the fat, hence it is also called Tumescent liposuction.
It works best on people who have persistent areas of fat, which do not respond to diet and exercise.
It is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise. It is not an effective treatment for cellulite. Liposuction can however significantly reshape body contours where excess fat deposits create areas that are disproportionately large in an otherwise balanced figure. Once the fat is removed the skin may contract and tighten.
You will be asked to wear a tight compression garment continuously for approximately six weeks. This helps the skin to adhere to underlying structures and the skin to retract. Temporary drains to remove excess fluid may be removed in two days. Dressings will be removed few days after surgery. Once the wounds have healed you will be encouraged to have the suctioned area massaged. This helps to reduce the post operative swelling quickly.
