Liposuction is an operation to improve the shape of your body by removing fat from under your skin.
Your body should have a better shape.
Improving your diet and doing more exercise can reduce localised fat deposits. It may be possible to inject a solution that dissolves the fat.
The operation is performed either under a general anaesthetic or under a local anaesthetic, depending on how many areas need to be treated. The operation usually takes 45 minutes to three hours.
For each area to be treated, your surgeon will make several small cuts. They will place a cannula (thin, hollow tube) through a cut and into the fat (see figure 1). The cannula is attached to a suction device that will remove the fat.
You should be able to go home the same day or the day after, depending on how many areas were treated.
You should be able to return to work after two to three days.
Your new body shape will usually take several months to appear. The best results for you will happen if you keep to a healthy weight and exercise regularly.
Liposuction is an operation to improve the shape of your body. You should consider the options carefully and have realistic expectations about the results.
