What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat from specific body areas. The most common sizes for liposuction are the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. Liposuction can also be performed on other areas of the body, such as the neck, arms, and back.

Liposuction is usually performed under general anesthesia but also can be done wilt local anesthesia . During the procedure, small incisions are made in the skin. A cannula, a small tube, is then inserted through the incisions and used to suction out the excess fat. Liposuction is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home on the same day as your surgery.

Recovery from liposuction can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. You will likely experience some bruising and swelling after your surgery. Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself after your procedure. Most people can return to their normal activities within a week or two.
