Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. Liposuction also shapes (contours) these areas. Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring. Liposuction is not typically considered an overall weight-loss method or a weight-loss alternative. If you are overweight, you are likely to lose more weight through diet and exercise or through bariatric procedures – such as gastric bypass surgery – than you would with liposuction. You may be a candidate for liposuction if you have too much
body fat in specific areas but otherwise have a stable body weight.
- FOOD AND MEDICATIONS
Before the procedure discuss with your surgeon what to expect from the surgery. Your surgeon will review your medical history, ask about any medical conditions you may have and any medications, supplements or herbs you may be taking. Your surgeon will recommend that you stop taking certain medications, such as blood thinners or NSAIDs, at least three weeks prior to surgery. You may also need to get certain laboratory tests before your procedure.
If your procedure requires the removal of only a small amount of fat, the surgery may be done in an office setting. If a large amount of fat is to be removed or you plan to have other procedures done at the same time, the surgery may take place in a hospital followed by an overnight stay. In either case, arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you for at least the first night after the procedure.
