Having undesirable fat on your body can be frustrating. Sometimes, no matter how you manipulate your diet or increase your exercise, it can be tough to get stubborn body fat to disappear. Luckily, for that purpose, there is a cosmetic surgery technique called liposuction. Liposuction is a procedure in which a surgeon can remove undesirable body fat, sculpt your body, and help you feel lighter and fitter, ridding your body of the fat you’ve been trying to shed for years.
HOW DOES LIPOSUCTION WORK?
When someone has liposuction, it can be performed while the candidate is awake or under anesthesia. A tiny incision is made in the problem area by the surgeon for insertion of a small tube to suction out the excess fat. In certain types of liposuction, a laser is used to help liquefy fat and for ease of removal. After the procedure, the patient is dressed with a compression garment that helps limit swelling. Most people can return to work within a couple of days.
