Liposuction, also know as lipo, is a type of fat-removal procedure used in plastic surgery. Evidence does not support an effect on weight beyond a couple of months and does not appear to affect obesity-related problems. In the United States, liposuction is the most common cosmetic surgery.
Risk in Liposuction :-
Like all surgeries, this procedure also carries a risk of complications. Before the surgery Your surgeon will inform you about the complications and benefits so that you can make an informed decision.
- Irregular contours
- Poor wound healing
- Excessive bleeding
Additional procedures may sometimes be required to reduce excess skin.
When large amounts (usually > five liters of fat) are suctioned special precautions must be taken.
Liposuction After care and Recovery Steps:-
Post-surgery, the treated areas are covered using compression garments or elastic bandages to help reduce swelling.
Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the care for surgical sites, medications to be used, and follow-up visits. It may take several days to weeks for complete recovery.
Recovery after surgery is a slow process. Recovery time depends on the specific type of liposuction, the amount and areas of fat removal, your general health, age, and other factors. Full recovery may take from weeks to months, and it may take up to a year for your swelling to completely subside to show your more permanent body shape.
