Liposuction is the removal of excess subcutaneous fat from unsatisfactory areas of the body: thighs, abdomen, waist, arms, chin, knees, and so on. One of the most popular surgeries is abdominal liposuction. However, in reality, liposuction surgery helps to improve almost any part of the body, and in one operation it is possible to extract fat from several unwanted parts of the body.
It is important to know that liposuction is not an operation to treat overweight or obesity - the latter is treated with diet and exercise. Liposuction surgery can be performed when it is not possible to beautify the body lines during exercise and healthy eating.
Very often, the liposuction operation is performed together with the fat transplant - the extracted fat is transplanted to another part of the body where you want to increase or provide firmness.

The course of the operation
Liposuction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, with a duration of about 1 to 2 hours, depending on how much fat is extracted and where in the body.
During the operation, small incisions (up to 0.5 cm in size) are made at pre-marked areas where liposuction is planned, through which fat is aspirated using an ultrasonic device. The incisions are sutured with soluble thread and do not need to be removed. Narrow scars remain little noticeable when the wounds heal.
Patients are usually discharged home the day after liposuction, but it is recommended to return to work 7-10 days after surgery.
Swelling and bruising may persist for up to 1 month. Depending on the location from which the liposuction was performed, special compression equipment such as a corset or elastic band may be required. They may need to be worn for about 6-8 weeks.
Physical activity should be avoided for about 6-8 weeks after surgery.
Complications are extremely rare, but bleeding, infection, pain, decreased skin sensitivity, fluid retention, prolonged healing, contour bumps, or temporary anesthesia may occur. All of these complications are usually avoided by following the surgeon's recommendations after surgery.
The risks associated with nasal plastic surgery are increased by smoking, obesity, chronic cardiovascular disease, diabetes, endocrine system diseases, and some other chronic diseases.
The body contour is formed and the final result is visible after 3-4 months, but maintaining a stable weight, sports and a healthy diet are crucial for maintaining long-term liposuction results.
