The Liposuction Procedure
You will be given general or local anesthesia depending upon your choice and certain other factors. The surgeon will then mark the areas where the fat cells will be removed from. Once this is done, incisions are made along the markings.
A cannula (a thin tube with a sharp end) is inserted through these insertions and then moved back and forth to loosen the fat cells. The loosened fat cells are extracted through the cannula using medical suction.
Recovery and Aftercare
Liposuction involves removing a large number of fat cells from the body at once. During the recovery period, it is advisable to refrain from activities that involve physical exertion, including sports and your exercise regimen.
The results of the surgery are visible once the body starts recovering. These results can be maintained for a long time, provided you maintain a healthy lifestyle with a proper diet and healthcare routine.
