Liposuction is a surgical procedure wherein fat deposits over certain areas of the body are removed by suctioning by various techniques (Syringe, power assisted, VASER).
Maximum benefit is obtained when specific areas like abdomen, hip rolls, buttocks, thighs or arms are targeted for contouring. Liposuction is done as a day care procedure and patient is sent home the same evening.
When two or more areas are targeted in the same sitting general anesthesia is preferred. Access ports are usually concealed along skin creases that could be hidden in undergarments. You are expected to wear the custom made compression garment for minimum of three months.
Return to social life depends on the areas targeted from one to three weeks.
