Liposuction FAQs

Liposuction: the magical word to make fat disappear.

Let’s take a wild guess. You’ve attempted umpteen fad diets, burned a hole in your pockets with gym memberships and even tried a few ‘fat burning’ teas to see a dip in the needles of the scale. After all the efforts, the fat from the body does not budge, at all!

Sometimes, even the best of diets and exercise regimes can’t reduce stubborn fat or help towards achieving an ideal body shape. This is why millions of people each year pick liposuction to surgically remove fat from trouble areas of the body and eventually sport a fit frame. If you’re considering liposuction, you’re most likely to have many questions about the procedure and how it will benefit you in the long run. As you read on in this blog we’ve made an attempt to answer the most frequently asked questions about liposuction below and offer you peace of mind for your concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions By The Patients:

Liposuction is a surgical procedure which can help people regain confidence in their appearance after dropping kilos. With any surgical treatment, questions and concerns are inevitable. Thus, we’re answering common FAQ’s for liposuction that are brought to our consultation table.

1. Is Liposuction A Weight Loss Treatment?

While you do lose fat and inches with liposuction, it is not a permanent solution for weight loss. It is a surgery suitable to individuals struggling with stubborn fat that refuses to react to diet and exercise.

 2. Is Liposuction Painful?

The surgical experience should not be painful. Either general or local anaesthesia is used to prevent any pain and distress during surgery. Our surgeons typically use the tumescent local anaesthetic technique.

 3. Is Liposuction A Dangerous Procedure?

Like any major surgery under general anesthesia, risks are inevitable. Liposuction too carries some risks, such as bleeding and a certain amount of reaction to anaesthesia. It is possible to experience poor skin elasticity and unusual healing. However with Laser SafeLIPOTM done at SkinCity there is no risk from anaesthesia or any complications, laser skin tightening is a part of the procedure as well.

 4. Which Is Better: Cool Sculpting Or Liposuction?

If you are thinking about cosmetic surgical procedures, liposuction is better than CoolSculpting. Since the latter removes less fat per treatment, you may need several sessions of Cool Sculpting.

5. Is Liposuction Worth The Cost?

The costs of liposuction vary depending on which part or parts of your body you choose to have treated. Our patients say that lipo procedure is worth it and that after recovery, their clothes fit better, they had more confidence, and they felt younger.

6. Will The Skin Tighten Up After Liposuction?

Although you will have a reduction in the amount of fatty tissue in the treated area, the remaining skin will only tighten up minimally, if at all. Liposuction does not treat excess skin. Only surgery to remove excess skin (tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, etc.) can do that. However Laser SafeLIPO addresses the excess fat and the loose skin.

7. How Long Does A Liposuction Treatment Last?

This is difficult to predict. It can take up to 6 months for the area to settle and during this time you will notice changes in the treated area. The final results of liposuction are long-lasting if you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.

8. Does Liposuction Treatment Leave A Scar?

As liposuction is a surgical procedure, a scar(s) is evident. The scars are small, just a few millimetres in lengthand generally fade outwithin months.Whenever possible, the incisions are hidden in a natural skin crease or fold.

9. Does It Become Easy To Lose Weight After Liposuction?

Liposuction contours the body and should not be treated as a weight loss treatment. You have to do all the sensible things to maintain this fat loss. Without a healthy diet and a good exercise regimen, the fat removed won’t return but fat will accumulate on other body parts giving an uneven appearance.

10. Is Liposuction Permanent?

It is true that the fat cells are removed permanently during liposuction. However, it is only permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise from the time you do the treatment. You are liable to gain fat on other untreated parts.

11. Can Liposuction Be Done Twice?

Liposuction can be performed in the same area more than once. A typical candidate for a repeat procedure is the one who undergoes ‘spot’ liposuction, mainly treating the lower and upper abdomen only.

12. Is The Recovery For Liposuction Painful?

Some discomfort, pain, swelling and bruising will be experienced for a few weeks. You will be prescribed a support garment to aid recovery. Liposuction under general anaesthesia requires hospitalisation; however Laser SafeLIPO is a daytime procedure. Enter at 10am and exit at 4pm.

The results of liposuction cannot be ascertained until the swelling goes down. However, post 4 weeks’ time, the inflammation would be considerably settled and post that you can begin to see the difference.

15. Who Is The Right Candidate For Liposuction?
