Liposuction can improve the contours and proportion of your body by taking excess fat from different parts of the body.
The liposuction procedure may seem simple as a concept, but like all other surgeries, it is a detailed procedure. It requires an experienced surgeon who shows attention to detail.
The most suitable candidates for this operation are those who have average or slightly above average. It can be paired up with other cosmetic surgeries such as a tummy tuck or breast augmentation.
Before the operation, you will have a consultation with your surgeon. You will talk about the procedure, risks and side effects, and what you should do before the operation. Your doctor will tell you about the type of anaesthesia to be used and the risks associated with the surgery.
Your surgeon will tell you about the different liposuction procedures and choose the one that best fits your needs and goals. Explain your goal as detailed to your doctor as possible, so that your doctor can create the most appropriate treatment plan for you to get you the maximum benefit from treatment.
The most commonly areas for liposuction are chin, neck, buttocks, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, knees and ankles. Liposuction is also used to treat gynecomastia (breast growth in males).
Many surgeons use liposuction in various body shaping procedures. The surgeon can achieve more effective results by tightening the muscles and using liposuction while removing excess skin.
One of the most popular of the body shaping procedures is the tummy tuck, the surgeon can tighten the abdominal area. In a full tummy tuck operation, the surgeon can also move the belly button further. During the procedure, a flat and shaped abdomen can be obtained by using liposuction.
