Liposuction can be used to extract fat from parts of the body that have not adapted to diet and exercise, such as:
Liposuction can often be used to reduce the breast or to relieve gynecomastia.
If you gain weight, the fat cells grow and volume. Liposuction, in turn, decreases the number of fat cells in a particular area. The number of calories that is extracted depends on the size of the area and the size of fat. The resulting changes in the contour are usually permanent — as long as the weight remains stable.
After liposuction surgery, the skin is transformed into the new curves of the treatment area. If you’re a healthy skin tone and permeability, your skin is likely to show up smooth. Even then, if the skin is thin with poor elasticity, the skin in the treatment area can appear loose.
Liposuction does not enhance the dimpling of cellulite or other skin surface abnormalities. Likewise, liposuction does not erase stretch marks.
If you are a candidate for liposuction, you should be in good health without complications that may hinder surgery — such as limited blood flow, coronary artery disease, sugar, or a weak immune system.
Just like in any major surgery, liposuction entails complications, such as bleeding and anesthesia. Possible liposuction-specific complications include
Contour irregularities Your skin can look bumpy, wavy, or withered due to uneven removal of fat, bad skin elasticity, and abnormal healing. These improvements may be lasting. Harm under the skin from the thin tube (cannula) used in liposuction may give the skin a lasting spotted appearance.
Fluid accumulation Short term fluid pockets (seromas) can develop beneath the skin. The fluid can need to be drained with a needle.
Numbness In the affected area, you can experience temporary or permanent numbness. Temporary nervous agitation is also likely.
Infection Infections of the skin are uncommon but likely. A serious infection of the skin can be life-threatening.
Internal puncture A cannula that absorbs too deeply can often puncture an internal organ. This could require emergency surgical repairs.
Fat embolism Sections of loose fat can break away and then become trapped in a blood vessel and collect in the lungs or move to the brain. Fat embolism is a medical emergency.
Kidney and heart problems Fluid changes as fluids are administered and squirted can potentially cause life-threatening complications in the kidney, heart, and lungs.
Lidocaine toxicityLidocaine is an anesthetic that is often used in fluids delivered during liposuction to help relieve pain. While usually healthy, in exceptional instances lidocaine toxicity can occur, causing severe heart and central nervous system problems.
The risk of infection rises if the surgeon operates on wider areas of your body or conducts several surgeries during the same operation. Speak to your doctor about how you are vulnerable to these dangers.
Before the operation, speak to your surgeon about what to expect from the surgery. Your doctor will review your medical history and inquire about any medical problems you may have and any medicines, nutrients, or herbs you may take.
Your doctor will suggest that you avoid taking such medicines, such as blood thinners or NSAIDs, at least three weeks before surgery. You will also need to get some laboratory testing performed before your treatment.
If your treatment requires only a low amount of fat to be removed, the procedure can be done in an office setting. If a massive amount of fat is removed — or if you intend to have other procedures performed at the same time — the operation will take place in a hospital room followed by an overnight stay. In any case, arrange for someone to take you home and stay with you for at least the first night after the treatment.
Before your liposuction treatment, the doctor may label circles and outlines in the parts of the body to be processed. Pictures can also be taken in such a way that they can be matched before and after images.
How your liposuction treatment is performed depends on the particular technique used. Your surgeon will choose the right method based on your treatment objectives, the area of your body to be handled, and whether you have had any liposuction procedures in the past.
It’s the most common method of liposuction. The doctor transmits a sterile solution — a mixture of saltwater that helps to remove fat, an anesthetic (lidocaine) to alleviate pain, and a drug (epinephrine) that allows blood vessels to constrict — into the region being handled. The combination of fluids causes the affected region to swell and stiffen.
Your doctor then makes minor cuts to your skin and puts a thin tube called a cannula through your skin. The cannula is attached to a vacuum that suctions your body’s fat and fluids. Your body fluid can be refilled by an intravenous (IV) tube.
This method of liposuction is often used in tandem with conventional liposuction. During UAL, the doctor injects a metal rod that releases ultrasonic energy under the skin. This removes the walls of the fat cells and removes down the fat for easier removal.
A future innovation of UAL called VASER-assisted liposuction uses a technology that can enhance skin contouring and reduce the risk of skin injuries.
This technique uses high-intensity laser light to extract fat. During LAL, the surgeon implants a laser fiber through a small incision in the skin, emulsifying fat deposits. The fat is then extracted via a cannula.
This method of liposuction uses a cannula that travels back and forth rapidly. This vibration makes it easier and quicker for the surgeon to take out tough fat. PAL can often cause less discomfort and swelling and can make it easier for a surgeon to extract fat more precisely. Your surgeon may choose this technique if you need to remove large amounts of fat or if you have had a previous liposuction procedure.

Dr. Buddhi Prakash Sharma creates an individualized plan for each individual and knows the right amount of fat to remove and contour and reshape the remaining fat so that the patient can achieve natural-looking results based on their bone structure.
Many liposuction treatments can only require local or regional anesthesia — anesthesia confined to a particular area of your body. Other procedures can require general anesthesia, which leads to a temporary state of unconsciousness. You may be given a sedative, normally via an IV injection, to help you stay calm and comfortable.
Dr. Buddhi Prakash Sharma will check the heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels during the operation. If you have local anesthesia and experience discomfort during the treatment, notify your surgeon. Medication or gestures may need to be changed.
The procedure can last up to a few hours depending on the degree of the removal of fat.
If you had general anesthesia, you’re going to wake up in a surgery room. Usually, you would spend at least a few hours in a hospital or clinic so that medical staff can monitor your recovery. If you are in a hospital, you may stay overnight to make sure that you are not dehydrated or in shock from a lack of fluid.
Dr. Buddhi Prakash Sharma is educated in the latest liposuction methods and provides his patients with health outcomes and ideal cosmetic outcomes. The treated region will be swollen, sore, and bruised after surgery. One must follow the aftercare steps prescribed by the surgeon.
