    Liposuction (chin, neck, tummy, circumferential, knee, legs, arms, thighs)

    Liposuction, lipoplasty, or body contouring is a surgical technique to remove excess fat from various body parts. The procedure can be done for the belly, thighs, hips, buttocks, neck, or arms using the suction methodology. It is one of the most common and popular cosmetic surgery procedures.

    For some individuals, liposuction treatment may be a good option, while it may not be the case for others. You must consult our doctors and discuss your concerns before going for the procedure. Liposuction is a technique used to eliminate fat from specific regions of the body that do not respond to diet and exercise. Furthermore, liposuction can be used to reduce breast size or treat gynecomastia.

    Possible Causes

    Fat cells grow in size and volume as you put on weight. Liposuction, in turn, reduces the number of fat cells in a particular region. The amount of fat eliminated is determined by the appearance of the area and the volume of fat.

    Risk Factors

    Some of the risk factors associated with liposuction are:

    • Bruising
    • Fluid accumulation
    • Infection
    • Need for revision surgery
    • Poor wound healing
    • Swelling
    • Deep vein thrombosis
    • Damage to deeper levels, nerves, blood vessels, muscles.

    Signs and Symptoms

    There are no symptoms of getting liposuction. However, people opt for the procedure due to multiple reasons such as:

    • Reshape your body
    • Reduce fat deposits
    • Boost self-confidence
    • Treatment
    • Stimulate the growth of collagen

    Diagnosis

    A typical diagnosis before liposuction includes consultation and a clear idea about the results. Some lab tests may also be required before your treatment. Several weeks before the procedure, our doctor will likely advise you to stop using certain medications, such as blood thinners and some pain relievers.
