Liposuction is a procedure that removes fat from the body. It can be used to remove fat from nearly any location in the body, but is most commonly performed on the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. Liposuction works by suctioning out fat from the body through small needles. The procedure typically takes about an hour and patients can go home a few hours after the procedure.
Liposuction is not for everyone. Your body type and medical history will determine whether you are a good candidate for liposuction. For example, if you have a lot of loose skin, or you are overweight, liposuction may not be able to remove enough fat to make a difference in your appearance. Liposuction is also not a substitute for healthy eating and exercise. You should still eat right and exercise regularly even after liposuction to maintain your weight and keep your body looking toned and fit.
The cost of liposuction will vary depending on where in the body you want to have it performed and how much fat needs to be removed. In the United States, liposuction costs $5,00-$10,000 per area of the body, depending on the amount of work that needs to be done in each area. In India, price ranges from INR 35,000 to 2 lacs.
It's important to know that liposuction is not permanent. Fat cells are designed to store and release energy, so they will replenish themselves if they are not completely removed during liposuction. However, this process takes time, so it's unlikely that your fat will return right away after liposuction. On average, patients who have liposuction once every four years can maintain their results with repeat treatments every four years or so. However, some people may need multiple treatments before seeing results or maintaining results over time. If you're considering getting liposuction as part of your weight loss plan or as part of a ”mommy makeover” package after having children, it's important to know that liposuction alone may not be enough to achieve your desired results. You may need additional treatments such as tummy tuck surgery or a breast lift with augmentation in order to get the look you want.
