What is Liposuction?
Losing weight is not the easiest thing to do, especially for people who do not have time to work out and exercise every day. There are also some people who just enjoy good food, although after some time all those foods build up as body fat. The good thing about this is the fact that fat is not permanent. There are so many ways to lose it and one of the fastest and most popular way is through Liposuction. Generally, Liposuction is a method done to slim down and reshape particular areas in the body like the stomach, arms, and thighs. The procedure removes the excess fats that have deposited on these problem areas and improves the general curvature of the body. This is commonly requested by women, although a lot of men are trying out the procedure as well.

How the procedure is done?
First of all, anesthesia would be administered to the patient. This could either be intravenous or general anesthesia. Then a small incision would be done on the affected area. This is a very small incision so there would be no ugly scars. A sterile liquid solution is then infused to decrease trauma and bleeding, as a thin hollow tube is inserted on the small incision. The doctor would then make a back and forth motion with the tube through the incision, to loosen the fat. Once the fat is ready to be sucked out from the body, a surgical vacuum or syringe attached on the hollow tube would be used.

What to expect after Liposuction?
Recovery after Liposuction usually takes some weeks. A lot of people tend to heal quickly and get back on their usual activities just after a short period of time. However, in the first few weeks, patients might experience swelling, bruising, and soreness of the body. There would be some medicines and antibiotics prescribed by the doctor to control pain and avoid infection, these must be followed well. On some cases, patients are also required to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling.
