The cost of liposuction varies from one case to another. The actual cost of the procedure to be borne by the patient is different for every individual. The specific clinic or hospital provides an estimated cost of the entire procedure after careful consideration of several factors such as- specific part of the body to be treated, amount of fat removed, anesthesia charges, location of the clinic and skills of the surgeon.
No. Most of the insurance companies in India do not provide coverage for the cost of the liposuction. It is considered as body-enhancing procedure and hence, most of the medical insurance plans do not offer any partial or whole coverage for the procedure. Several financing agencies offer EMI options and other payment options that can be beneficial for the patient.
Diet plays an important role in the recovery of a patient who has undergone liposuction. The diet helps to maintain the outcomes of the procedure for a long time. Some of the common food items that people should consume after the procedure include lean meat, beans and legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds, fishes, leafy green vegetables, and protein supplements. In addition to this, the patient should remain hydrated and take a lot of multivitamins.
In the tumescent liposuction, the surgeon injects a saline solution with an anesthetic to the area to be treated. After a while, the surgeon inserts a cannula and makes a to and fro motion to break the fat cells. Whereas in laser liposuction, the surgeon relies on a laser probe. It is inserted into the area to be treated that loosens the stubborn fat and allows the surgeon to sculpt the loosened fat easily.
Liposuction is the surgical procedure to remove stubborn fat cells from specific parts of the body that makes bodyshape more ehanced. While body sculpting is the procedure of removing unwanted fat from parts of the body and adding them in the ‘right’ places that improves the overall contour of the body.
In traditional liposuction or simply known as liposuction, the surgeons insert a cannula and move it in a to and fro motion that breaks the fat cells. Whereas Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance or VASER liposuction is another type of liposuction. In this procedure, the surgeon uses ultrasound probes to break the stubborn fat cells which is then sucked out via an aspirator.
No. The results of liposuction, irrespective of any type, are permanent in nature. Liposuction aims to remove the fat cells from the treated part of the body permanently. However, if the patient falls back to following unhealthy lifestyle habits then the fat cells near the treated area can grow large again resulting in uneven body shape.
The ideal candidate for liposuction are adults who maintain 30% of their ideal weight, not suffering from a life-threatening condition, and has good, firm skin and muscle tone. Ultimately, if the liposuction is a good option for you or not is decided by the surgeon.
Liposuction is an effective procedure to enhance the overall body contour and shape. But in order to make the procedure work, the patient should take necessary precautions both before and after the procedure. Moreover, the patient needs to keep realistic expectations from the procedure for it to work.
Yes. The outcomes of liposuction are permanent as the surgeons remove the fat cells from the treated area completely. Moreover, the patient has to follow several post-operative instructions after the procedure to ensure that the results continue to remain so. In case the patient fails to follow through, the other fat cells in the treated area may enlarge again.
No. One of the common side effects that people come across after undergoing liposuction is visible scarring. The scars caused due to incisions develop after a couple of weeks of the procedure.

In case the scars deepen with time, there are some creams and medicines that surgeons prescribe to use.
Yes. Removing stubborn fat from the inner or outer thigh region can help improve the overall contour of the body. In case the patient has been suffering from dermatitis and rashes for a very long time due to extra fat in the inner thigh region, then liposuction is an effective solution to consider. In the longer run, liposuction is also a cost-effective treatment option to consider.
According to a research paper titled, “The key to long-term success in liposuction: a guide for plastic surgeons and patients”, most of the participants were satisfied with the of the procedure. However, the patients need to have a positive outlook towards their lifestyle in order to ensure the results of the procedure be effective. Evidently, liposuction is one of the common cosmetic procedures that people choose to undergo in India, ays one of the surveys conducted by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommend that the ideal candidates for liposuction are inidividuals who are not suffering from any serious medical condition and maintain 30% of their ideal weights. In addition to this, they should also have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone. Moreover, they should keep realistic expectations from the procedure.
Non-surgical fat reduction options do not work on large parts of the body. Liposuction is a more effective, accurate option for removing fat from certain parts of the body. With the non-surgical option, the person has to wait for atleast couple of months to notice any results as well as the results may not be so as precise as expected. Nonsurgical option may seem appropriate for people who are looking to lose small portions of fat while liposuction treats large parts of the body.
First, the surgeons administer anesthesia that numb the area to be treated. Next, they make small incisions through which they insert a solution or ultrasound probes that help break the stubborn fat cells into a liquid form. In traditional liposuction, a cannula is inserted that is moved in to and fro motion to dislodge the fat cells. The liquified fat cells are then sucked out by an aspirator. The incisions are then closed with surgical glue or sutures. Depending on the type of liposuction, there can be some additional steps.
A single procedure of liposuction can help lose 5 liters or 11 pounds of fat safely. It is not considered safe to remove more fat than 5 liters during a single procedure. There can be a high chance of life-threatening complications in case more fat is removed than the recommended amount.
No. Liposuction is not an appropriate treatment option to consider for curing cellulite.

When the patient undergoes liposuction along with an ultrasound or laser treatment, the problem of cellulite can be cured.
Liposuction can be performed in various parts of the body including upper arms, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, chest and back, hips and thighs, chin and neck, calves and ankles. Removing fat from these parts of the body can improve the body’s overall appearance and contour.
Surgeons recommend that patients after the procedure should wear the compression garment for atleast 21 days. The actual duration is decided by the surgeon depending on the volume of tissue removed and the rate of recovery of the patient. The main purpose of the vest is to control the swelling and to provide support to the treated area.
Swelling is one of the most common side effects that people complain of once the liposuction is complete. The patient can curb the swelling and mild pain around the wounds by following simplet-yet aftercare tips that surgeons recommend. Some of these are- wearing a compression garment during the entire recovery period, applying ice packs on the wounds, massaging around the wounds, drinking lots of fluids, keeping iodine take in check, taking anti-inflammatory drugs, eating a balanced diet, etc.
A patient can generally expect to see the final results of the liposuction within 1-3 months of the surgery. The actual time may vary depending on the volume of fat removed, type of liposuction undergone and physique of the patient. By this time, there should be no swelling nor any pain. The patient has to follow through rigorous fitness regime for another 3 months to get their body more even toned and uniform. In other words, a patient has to wait a total of 6 months to see the results of liposuction.
Following tips after the procedure are essential part of recovery. Some of the activities to avoid include lifting heavyweight, indulging in physical exertion, taking certain medications such as blood thinners, taking long bath, remaining stationary in one pose. On the other hand, some of the activities that one should indulge in include walking for short distances every couple of months, taking a proper diet, wearing the compression garment, drinking lots of fluids, etc.
Generally, the recovery time of liposuction ranges from one four to six weeks. By this time, the patient recovers mostly and are back on their feet. Most of the side effects that occur after the procedure are treated by this time. The actual duration of the recovery varies depending on a couple of factors such as patient’s physique, type of liposuction underwent, type of equipment used, volume of fat removed, etc.
Surgeons generally prescribe patients to follow the below-mentioned aftercare tips- ||Take prescribed medications and painkillers ||Include foods that do not cause constipation ||Drink lots of water ||Avoid lifting heavy objects ||Do not indulge in an extensive workout regime ||Avoid taking long showers or baths
