What To Expect From Your Liposuction SurgeryLiposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat deposits from certain parts of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or neck region. Liposuction is for those who have tried both diet and exercise and cannot get rid of excess fat.

Despite the well-known characteristics of this aesthetic intervention, many people have unrealistic expectations. It is important to understand what liposuction can and cannot do for you, should you be considering having it.

What To Expect From Your Liposuction Surgery

Will I get rid of extra pounds?

Liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment. You can lose a few pounds after liposuction, but the primary function of this treatment is to shape the body and reduce its volume. If you aspire to this, liposuction is the right solution.

Does liposuction provide lasting results?

Fat cells that are removed by one of the liposuction techniques do not return. However, this does not mean that the results of liposuction will be visible if you gain weight. Also, the aging process will affect the long-term appearance of liposuction.

For long-term results after liposuction, follow a diet with lots of lean proteins, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. And exercise regularly.

Recovery after liposuction

Swelling and bruising during the recovery period are common. However, since liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure, recovery will be quick, but it also depends on you.
