Why is it done?

The main role of liposuction is to reshape one or more areas of the body, not to reduce body weight. Liposuction is usually used on "problem" areas that have not responded well to diet and exercise. Liposuction is also used to treat certain medical conditions, including:

Step 1: Anaesthesia is given to the patient

Step 2: Incision - Procedure is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions.

Step 3: Results -improved body contour will be apparent once the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside.

FAQS on Liposuction


  • What are Elastic Compression Garments?
  • Elastic compression garments are designed to:
    • To reduce bleeding immediately after surgery and
    • To reduce swelling at the time when the body is healing.


  • Is liposuction safe?
  • Liposuction is a safe procedure, but there are risks and potential complications associated with any surgery. The most dangerous aspect of liposuction ignoring the risk of doing too much liposuction on a single day, or disregards the risks of doing multiple unrelated surgical procedures on the same day that liposuction surgery is performed. Some of the rare problems that can potentially occur with any surgical procedure include infections, bleeding, skin ulcerations, and nerve injury.


  • Is there any pain or discomfort after Liposuction surgery?
  • In the first two days after the liposuction procedure, the amount of pain experienced depends on the type of anaesthesia used. Soreness is usually most intense 2 to 4 days after liposuction and then decreases steadily. The tenderness and soreness is usually quite troublesome for up to 4 weeks, but gradually subsides over the following next 4 to 8 weeks.


  • Who is not a good candidate for liposuction?
  • A person who is proportionate but overweight is not a good candidate for liposuction.


  • How many areas can be done during liposuction?
  • Usually between three to four areas can safely be done with a single liposuction procedure.
  • When are the results visible?
  • Final results are mostly visible between 6-12 months, but most patients can see the results within one month. Usually by 3 weeks much of the swelling is down and most patients are looking better than before the surgery.


  • How much fat can be during the procedure?
  • During liposuction, enough fat is removed to get a proportionate and natural result. The main goal is not to remove as much fat as possible, but rather to remove just the right amount in the right areas. It may be as little as half a pound, or it may be up to ten pounds.
  • The safe limit for one surgery is five litres (about 11 Lbs.). But mostly it is not the amount of fat that limits the surgery but how many areas can be safely done during a single surgery.


  • At what age a person can go for liposuction?
  • Liposuction can be performed on anyone 15 – 78 years old. However, skin elasticity is a primary consideration when performing liposuction. As one’s age advances, skin elasticity gets weaker and weaker.


  • What happens if a patient gains weight after Liposuction?
  • When liposuction is performed correctly, the contours of the body will improve permanently .If a patient gains weight, the new contours and proportions will remain much the same as they were after liposuction. Weight gain will simply make these contours a little less visible. If you then lose the weight again, your contours should resume their post-liposuction size and shape.
