Liposuction is a procedure that is performed to help men and women of various ages and backgrounds achieve the body contouring goals that they have been unable to achieve through diet and exercise alone. The procedure itself take approximately 2-4 hours to perform and is done under local, twilight or general anesthesia. Recovery can very from patient to patient but generally patients are able to return to work within a week and to light exercise in 2-3 weeks. Swelling is typically completely resolved after around 3-6 months.
Liposuction is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which a long, skinny, metal tube is inserted so the fat can be suctioned out. It is important to understand that Liposuction isn’t a weight loss method, or a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise regime.
