    Liposuction is not a substitute for proper diet, exercise and nor treatment for obesity.

    It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite – the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips, and buttocks – or loose saggy skin, it only removes fat.

  • Ideal Liposuction candidates

    If you are bothered by excess fat deposits – located anywhere on your body – that don't respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you.

    You can be a good candidate for liposuction if you are:

    • Healthy individuals and do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing.
    • Adults within 30% of their ideal weight and have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
    • Do not have smoking habits and have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance.
  • Liposuction recovery

    The recovery period for liposuction depends on the type of the kind of anaesthesiaused, type of liposuction you have, how large the treated area is.

    During your liposuction recovery, a compression garment or bandages may cover surgical/treated areas once your procedure/surgery is completed. These help to control swelling, bruising and compress the skin to your new body contours. In addition, small temporary drains may be placed in existing incisions beneath the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid.

    You will be given specific instructions that may include:

    • How to care for the surgical/treated areas and small temporary drains.
    • To aid healing and reduce the potential for infection you will be given medications to apply or take orally.
    • Specific instructions to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
    • Your next follow up date with your Plastic surgeon.
    • Make sure to ask your Plastic surgeon specific questions regarding your recovery period:
    • Will I have dressings/bandages after surgery?
    • When will they be removed?
    • Are stitches removed? When?
    • What medication will I be prescribed after surgery?
    • When can I resume normal activity and exercise?
    • When do I return for follow-up care?
    • Where will I be taken after my surgery is complete?
    • What medication will I be given or prescribed after surgery?
    • Will I have dressings/bandages after surgery?
    • How long will I wear the compression garment?
    • Are stitches removed? When?
    • When can I resume normal activity and exercise?
    • When do I return for follow-up care?

    It may take several weeks to months for the swelling to fully dissipate. As it does, you may notice changes and differences in the treatedarea. Gradually your new contours will be apparent when the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside and your enhanced self-image should continue to develop.

    Following your surgeon's instructions is key to the success of your surgery.

    It is important that the surgical incisions during the time of healing period are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion, or motion. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

    As one age, it is natural to lose some firmness/elasticity of the skin, but most of your improvement should be relatively permanent.

    Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

    Liposuction does not improve lax skin tone.
