Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture, lipectomy, or lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and “sucks” fat from the body.
LIPOSUCTION It is important that the patient is aware that liposuction is not a surgery to lose weight, but to eliminate fatty deposits that do not respond to diets or exercises. In this sense, ideal patients are those who are close to their ideal weight. The most requested anatomical areas for this intervention are: Abdomen, Side areas, Thighs, Arms.
FAST FACTS ON LIPOSUCTION – The operation is normally carried out under general anesthesia. – Liposuction is not a weight-loss tool but a cosmetic procedure with subtle effects. – Risks include infection and scarring.
RESULTS The results of liposuction will not be clear until the inflammation goes down. In some cases, this may take several months. Most of the swelling settles after about 4 weeks, and the area where fat was removed should appear less bulky.
