Liposuction is a form of cosmetic surgery where fat is removed from a particular area of the body by melting and then sucking it out with a tube. This used to reshape one or more areas of your body and remove fat from your body using suction, not to reduce body weight or treat obesity since it will not get rid of cellulite or stretch marks. It is sometimes used in combination with other cosmetic surgery procedures, such as a “tummy tucks”, breast reduction, or face-lift.
During liposuction, small, thin, blunt-tipped tubes are inserted through tiny cuts in the skin. Fat is suctioned out through these tubes .Improved techniques have made liposuction safer, easier, and less painful and these newer techniques include:
Liposuction should be done only by a doctor with special training in liposuction and surgery of the skin. Note that you will be at less risk for complications if liposuction is not done at the same time as other cosmetic procedures and also one should not attempt the procedure if you have severe heart problems or during pregnancy.
Liposuction results are long-lasting if you exercise regularly, eat a balanced diet, and stay at a healthy weight after the procedure.
