Liposuction surgery comes under cosmetic procedures that are performed to enhance the physical appearance of the person. Worldwide, liposuction is the second most common cosmetic procedure after breast augmentation.
People often undergo liposuction to improve the shape of their body by removing the fat deposits from different body parts, including arms, face, thighs, hips, abdomen, back, etc.
It is also popularly known as lipoplasty, body contouring, lipectomy, or simply lipo. The procedure works on a simple principle that involves breaking down the fat deposits and suctioning out the tissues through a vacuum. When it comes to results, liposuction is most certainly a treatment that will remove fat from all body parts and distribute the left-out fat proportionally to enhance the body shape.

To analyze your skin health, laxity, volume, composition, etc., the doctor will suggest you the following diagnostic tests:
Besides these tests, the doctor may also recommend having other tests to ensure that you are in optimal health for liposuction. These tests include Haematocrit (Blood Test), CBC (Complete Blood Count), electrolyte test, urinalysis, ECG, pregnancy test, HIV test, platelet count test, blood sugar test, prothrombin time test, etc.
Like all surgical procedures, liposuction surgery must be performed in a licensed and accredited medical center under the care of highly experienced surgeons. A registered anesthetist will also be present during the treatment.
The treatment is done in the following steps:
If needed, the incisions are closed properly or left open to heal on their own. Depending on the number of areas that are getting treated, the surgery may take around 1-3 hours.
To prepare for liposuction surgery, the doctor will ask you to do the following:
Along with all this, make sure that you have someone (a friend or family member) to accompany you on the day of surgery, as you won’t be able to drive afterward.
During the Surgery
As liposuction is a surgical procedure, it is apparent that the procedure will have a few risks and complications associated with it. The good news is that, out of all the liposuction surgeries performed all across the globe, less than 5% of people experience minor complications.
During the procedure, the risks are:
The complications can arise while the surgeon is performing the surgery. That’s why it is recommended that you always have liposuction under the care of a highly experienced surgeon who can easily mitigate these risks and perform the surgery with precision.
After the Surgery
Aside from the complications that can occur during the procedure, there are some other post-surgery complications that will affect your health and the results of liposuction as well. It includes having:
All these risks are usually identified before the doctor proceeds with the liposuction treatment. However, if the patient fails to follow the doctor’s instructions and doesn’t pay attention to their overall health during the recovery period, any of these complications can arise.
Immediately after the surgery, you can expect to have some bruising and swelling on the treated areas. You will also experience numbness and minor pain in the region.
A small drain will be left open to ensure that the extra body fluid gets expelled from the body properly. The doctor will also prescribe some antibiotics to prevent infection. You can start walking around after a few days when you feel comfortable doing so. The doctor may advise resting completely for the first few days to reduce swelling and prevent blood clots from forming in your legs.
The doctor will also provide you with a compression garment that you will have to wear for a few weeks to minimize the swelling and ensure that the skin and underlying muscles adjust properly to enhance your body shape.
When you visit a plastic surgeon to consult whether to undergo liposuction or not, they will first try to understand the reasons you want to go under the needle. The doctor will determine whether you match the criteria for an ideal liposuction candidate or not. The basic requirements involve:
During your consultation, the doctor will most likely suggest that you try losing fat with diet and exercise. And if that doesn’t work, only then will the doctor recommend having liposuction.
Liposuction has several health benefits, which is why more and more people are opting for the procedure. A few of its important health benefits are given below-
Yes, it is possible to perform liposuction on multiple body parts. Most times, multiple body parts, such as hip, belly, thigh, etc., are treated at the same time during liposuction. It is completely safe.
The results of liposuction can last for up to 5 to 10 years, depending on how well the patient takes care of his/her health. By taking a balanced diet and living an active lifestyle, the patient can enjoy the results of liposuction for a very long time.
The FDA has approved liposuction to remove up to 11 pounds of fat which is equivalent to five liters.
Technically, liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. But it will reduce the overall weight as 3 to 5 liters of fat is removed during the procedure.
No, liposuction and tummy tuck are two different procedures. Liposuction involves the removal of fat tissues from different parts of the body. Unlike this, a tummy tuck involves tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin. Both these procedures can be combined together to help a patient achieve an ideal body shape and improve the contours.
Usually, the patient is discharged on the same day after liposuction surgery. However, in some cases, the doctor may suggest hospitalization for 1-2 days to monitor the patient.
You can start exercising after one month of getting liposuction treatment. The doctor will suggest you some exercises that will help to enhance the body curves further and get the desired results.
It is One of the common question Asked. As the fat cells in the treated areas have been permanently removed, you are less likely to see future weight gain in those areas.
Liposuction surgery is not much painful. As long as anesthesia medications are used and the operation is performed in an accredited surgical facility by an expert plastic surgeon, liposuction should be a relatively minimally invasive experience.
Leaving the subcutaneous fat won’t have any major impact on your health. However, it may affect your self-confidence. You may not feel comfortable wearing the same clothes as before and may also hesitate to socialize with people fearing that you may get mocked due to the extra weight. Being self-conscious about body weight and shape is, after all, the primary reason for people to go for liposuction.
This type of liposuction surgery involves using a large volume of lidocaine and epinephrine into the subcutaneous fat tissues to make them swollen and firm, i.e., tumescent. Then the cannula is used to emulsify the fat tissues and remove them through a vacuum suction device safely.
Also known as the vibrating cannula technique, power-assisted liposuction involves a specific type of cannula that moves up and down for greater fat removal. It is commonly preferred to remove fat tissues from difficult, secondary, and scarred areas. It can also be used to transfer large volumes of fat to other areas. The unwanted tissues are suctioned out properly, and the patient gets precise results.
In this type of liposuction, laser technology is used to break the fat tissues. It also coagulates and tightens the skin by boosting collagen production. The laser probe is inserted into the targeted area to break fat tissues with laser energy and removed through a suction device.
Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (UAL)
As the name suggests, ultrasound energy is used in this type of liposuction. A third-generation UAL device is used to address the fat. The probe is inserted in the targeted region to melt down the fat tissues safely. The melted fat is extracted through a special vacuum device. It is especially beneficial for people who have a particular skin tone and want to get rid of fat from difficult areas. It is also commonly used in the treatment of gynecomastia as well.
The recovery from liposuction surgery primarily depends on two factors. The first one is the overall health of the patients and the second one is the technique opted for fat removal.
If you are in good shape and don’t have any medical condition, you will be able to heal quickly from the surgery and get the desired results as soon as possible.
The second factor determines how invasive liposuction surgery will be. For instance, if you undergo tumescent or power-assisted liposuction, the invasiveness of the procedure is high. Therefore, the recovery rate will be slow, and you will need around 4-6 months to heal properly and additional 2-3 months to see the visible results from liposuction treatment.
Unlike this, if you undergo laser-assisted or ultrasound-assisted liposuction, the recovery rate will be high. These are minimally invasive procedures that will allow your body to heal quickly and also enhance the skin texture by improving collagen production.
Regardless of the type of liposuction you are having, you can discuss the recovery rate of each type of liposuction with the plastic surgeon and then choose the method that works best for you.
Liposuction is a procedure whose results take some time to become clearly visible. The loss of fat can be seen to some extent after the swelling subsides. But the final results will take around 2-3 months to appear with proper diet and exercise. Then you will be able to see the changes in your body shape and contours clearly
The doctor will provide you with a detailed guide that will include a diet plan, physical activities, and other guidelines that you must follow to get the expected results.
To reap all benefits from liposuction surgery, these recovery tips will help you:
On 19th July, a patient named Jyoti Khanna contacted us through a call regarding her concerns about belly fat. She had been trying to lose belly fat for about a year without any successful results. All her attempts were in vain, and that’s when she decided to get in touch with us.
We connected her with Dr. Ashwani Kumar, who is one of our best plastic surgeons in Gurgaon and Delhi NCR. He diagnosed the patient and established that she is an ideal candidate for liposuction surgery. She was overall healthy and didn’t have a habit of smoking or drinking. The doctor planned liposuction treatment for the next week with her consent and carried out the procedure.
Jyoti went home on the same day and followed up with Dr. Ashwani after every two weeks. Now, she has recovered completely and the fat on her belly region is completely gone. She took good care of her body and followed all the instructions given by the doctor. Due to her dedication, she achieved the desired results in less than 3 months.

I was really pleased with Dr. Jagadish Kiran, whom I got to know through Pristyn Care. Not only is he a capable surgeon but also showed great patience in explaining me the whole procedure and clearing all the doubts. I had lumps in both my armpits due to the extra tissue that I had (Axillary Breast tissue) which were carefully removed by the doctor through lipo and a small excision. I felt no pain during the procedure. I was given instructions for the care of the incision site and the drain. I was discharged on the same day. We had our follow-up appointment after a couple of days and all went well. I even flew back to my hometown the very next day. In the first and second weeks, I felt good as there was only minor incisional pain. All in all, I am very glad that I got the procedure done by Dr. Jagadish Kiran. The recovery is going smooth. Thank you so much for the great care and surgery you performed on me. You and your staff have made such a huge difference for me. I am feeling much better, and I appreciate all you have done and thank you Pristyn for helping me with the consultation and for arranging cabs for travel.
