Liposuction is a type of aesthetic procedures in which a suction technique is utilized in order to remove excess fat tissues from various parts of the body like abdomen, hips, arms, buttocks and ... Liposuction is also called as lipoplasty or body contouring. All patients should know that liposuction is not typically a method for loosing weight. Overweighted patients must utilize other methods like having specific diets and exercise for loosing weight. The other method is gastric bypass surgery. You might be a suitable candidate for liposuction operation if you have too much body fat in specific spots but otherwise have a stable body weight.

Liposuction process is done to remove excessive fat from areas of the body that have not responded to diet and exercise, including:

1. Abdomen

2. Upper arms

3. Buttocks

4. Calves and ankles

5. Chest and back

6. Hips and thighs

7. Chin and neck

Risks of liposuction process

Like all types of major operations, liposuction has its own risks like bleeding, infections, reaction to anesthetics substances. The other possible complications include:

1. Contour irregularities. Your skin may look very bumpy, wavy or withered due to uneven fat elimination, poor skin elasticity and unusual recovery. These changes may be permanent. Damage beneath the skin from the thin tube known as cannula and that is utilized along with liposuction may give the skin a permanent spotted looking.

2. Fluid accumulation. Temporary pockets of fluid which is known as seromas might form under the skin. This fluid might need to be drained with a needle following the operation.

3. Numbness. You may feel temporary or permanent feeling of numbness in the operated areas. Temporary nerve irritation also is possible.

4. Infection. Skin infections are rare but not impossible. A severe skin infection may be life-threatening.

5. Internal puncture. Infrequently, a cannula that penetrates too deeply may puncture an internal organ. This may require emergency surgical repair.

6. 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 known as fat embolism. A fat embolism is a very important medical emergency.

7. Kidney and heart problems. Shifts in fluid levels as fluids are being injected and suctioned out can be potentially life-threatening kidney, heart and lung problems.

8. Lidocaine toxicity. Lidocaine is an anesthetic mostly administered with fluids injected during liposuction to help managing the pain. Although generally safe, in rare circumstances, lidocaine toxicity can occur, causing serious heart and central nervous system problems.

The results that occur following tummy tuck are mostly permanent and you can be completely with suitable weight with diet and exercise. In comparison with liposuction, tummy tuck procedure is more intensive. While lipo only removes excessive fat tissues, a tummy tuck reconstructs the muscles of the abdomen and removes excess skin.
Pain varies considerably from person to person. For most patients, it feels like having a giant bruise in the area that was treated. It shouldn't be so severe that it keeps you from concentrating on other things (reading, watching TV, walking, etc.).
One time after removing fat cells from the body, they cannot grow back and new fat cells can not develop. But what can happen by gaining weight following liposuction process is that the remaining fat cells get bigger. This is why it is so crucial to be vigilant about maintaining a stable weight following liposuction.
The average cost of liposuction is $3,637, based on 2020 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This average cost is not all part of the total costs like not including anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.
