What does liposuction surgery mean?

liposuction is a fat removal technique. This is generally the remaining fat you can’t get rid of through regular diet and exercise. In this technique a hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted into an incision over a fat deposit and suctions fat away from the body, reducing the size of the overall fat deposit.

This minimally invasive cosmetic surgery usually removes fat from your hips, belly, thighs, buttocks, back, arms, and under the chin or face to improve their shape. Liposuction is conducted by a plastic or dermatologic surgeon and can also be done with other plastic surgeries, such as facelifts, breast reductions, and tummy tucks.


When should you consider liposuction?

Liposuction is the best surgery option for you as long as you are in a healthy state, nonsmoker, and within 30% percent of your ideal weight. If you want to remove fat from a particular area of the body you haven’t been able to reduce by diet and exercise, liposuction may be for you. The stubborn subcutaneous fat which resides between muscle and skin can be removed by liposuction but liposuction isn’t a good option for removing visceral fat which resides beneath the muscle layer around the abdominal organs.


 Another factor to have in mind is the condition of your skin. Patients with good skin elasticity could be good candidates for liposuction, while patients with loose skin or cellulite are not.


How much fat can be removed with liposuction?

Liposuction is particularly effective at removing fat in the legs, abdomen, back, arms, face, and neck. Although there is not a weight limit for those who want to lose weight with liposuction you have to know liposuction won’t remove all the fat in your body. There’s a limit, the maximum amount which can be removed is between six to eight pounds or optimistically eleven pounds.

How much does liposuction hurt?

Soreness is usually the most intense 2 to 4 days after liposuction and then decreases steadily. The tenderness and soreness typically quite bother you for up to 4 weeks after the surgery, but gradually decreases over the next 4 to 8 weeks. It also takes 4 to 6 until you’re fully recovered and can do physical activities just like before.

Liposuction is an ideal surgery for you. liposuction is body sculpting, not a weight loss surgery.

There are many techniques used in performing liposuction and each works by removing fat pockets that have deformed the body shape from different parts of the body, commonly the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, double chin, and bra roll.  The key point about liposuction is that it is a body contouring procedure improving physical body form.  Liposuction is not a weight-loss operation and can’t replace a healthy routine diet and exercise.  Liposuction is suitable for patients with stubborn fat deposits that can’t get rid of their belly by regular nutrition or a hard fitness diet.

 Patients who are satisfied after surgery are at a stable weight for 4-6 months before their liposuction surgery and have been on a healthy eating plan and exercise.


Does liposuction permanently remove fat?

Yes, liposuction does permanently remove fat cells from the body. The number of fat cells in each person’s body is stable and by liposuction, a number of these cells are eliminated forever from that particular area. Not 100% of fat cells are removed from an area treated with liposuction. However, after liposuction, you can still gain and lose weight which adversely Yes, liposuction does permanently remove fat cells from the body. The number of fat cells in each person’s body is stable and by liposuction, a number of these cells are eliminated forever from that particular area. Not 100% of fat cells are removed from an area treated with liposuction. However, after liposuction, you can still gain and lose weight which adversely affects the results of liposuction. This technique does not guarantee a permanent stable weight over time. There is no limit to how much fat each fat cell can store. Therefore, it means that if you gain weight after liposuction, the remained fat cells can grow larger with extra caloric intake and you may see the weight gain in the area that was liposuctioned as well as in other parts of the body.  Because liposuction is a body contouring procedure, it is very important to watch your eating and exercise habits after liposuction to enjoy the best and most durable long-term results.


How much weight can you lose with liposuction?

The amount of fat that will be removed in a liposuction procedure depends on the body and the extent of fat accumulation.

 Only a certain amount of fat can be removed safely in each surgery, without putting the patient at risk. The maximum amount of fat removed during each procedure is about 5 kilograms which are not significant enough to cause a drastic change in the total body weight. Some surgeons even recommend smaller amounts. It is important to know that by removing more amount of fat from the body, the risks of complications during surgery increase. If multiple treatment areas are desired and the total fat amount is more than 5 kilograms, the procedure should be done in 2 or more separate surgeries, each one scheduled at least one to three months apart. It must be noted that several small liposuction procedures are much safer than one extensive surgery.


What does your BMI have to be for liposuction?

You should consider that liposuction is not for weight loss and is designed to change the body shape. The goal of liposuction is to remove unnecessary fat from certain areas of the body. There is a limit on the amount of fat that can be removed during liposuction.

A safe amount of fat removed during liposuction should not exceed 5 kilograms in a single procedure.

So, if your BMI is high the loss of only 5 kilograms of fat will probably be hardly noticeable and the result will not satisfy you.

Therefore, obese or morbidly obese people (BMI between 30 and 34 or greater than 35) are not qualified for liposuction as they are at high risk for complications during a surgical procedure.

Other diseases may accompany high BMI, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and a higher risk of stroke during the surgery

How long does Liposuction surgery take?

The length of the Liposuction procedure depends on how many areas liposuction is being performed on. One area, the neck, for example, can take 20 minutes for only the neck to about an hour for areas like the abdomen. But usually, a liposuction procedure takes less than three hours. You may need a few sessions for liposuction which are spread out a couple of weeks apart and each session can take about an hour. Most people typically only need one session. Liposuction is an outpatient surgery and the recovery takes only several days.


How painful is liposuction surgery? Does liposuction hurt?

Liposuction surgery will be painless, as the area will be numbed due to general anesthesia during the procedure. Immediately after the procedure, discomfort and pain will be felt but this will gradually get better after about two to three days. Pain differs from patient to patient. Some patients will feel discomfort, tightness, or itchiness, and others will sense minimal to moderate pain or soreness. During the first few days, your surgeon will give you pain medication and lifestyle instructions to feel more comfortable. You should also limit your activity during this time. The pain completely disappears between 5 to 7 days.


How safe is Liposuction surgery? And what are the side effects of Liposuction?

Like any other surgery, there are some risks for liposuction surgery. It’s important to discuss all the risks of liposuction and address all your questions with your plastic surgeon before having the procedure. We can help reduce the risks by making sure you do it under specially trained, board-certified cosmetic surgeons.

What to eat after liposuction surgery?

Post-liposuction care should not be ignored or neglected. To achieve the most sustainable results from liposuction and also a fast recovery is often dependent on diet and physical activity. Focusing on permanent additions to your diet is very important. To get the most from a liposuction procedure you should eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day. 

By drinking plenty of water you can help control hunger and also keep properly hydrated, so you can easily maintain the results of the procedure as well as improving your overall health.

Water and natural juices can also help your body in the healing process and flush out toxins associated with medication. You should avoid alcohol for at least 2 weeks post liposuction and reduce the intake of sugars, simple carbohydrates, and saturated fats. Instead, you should incorporate plenty of foods that will help you heal and maintain the maximum results of your liposuction procedure.

Diets high in protein and low in carbohydrates work well for many people along with avoiding extra flour and sugar. Here are the top nutritional foods you should intake after the liposuction procedure:

· Eggs, and fish which contain proteins, B12, and iron

· Chicken, and beans which contain proteins

· Fresh fruits and vegetables which contain Vitamin C

· Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains which have fiber

· Yogurt and fermented foods that have probiotics
