Liposuction - Before And After

Nov 19, 2007
Many people today have become extremely conscious about their appearance and presentation. Women, in particular, take particular pride in their appearance and will go to great expense to appear as attractive as possible. Women of all ages, and men too, are turning to cosmetic surgery to improve their looks and build their self confidence.

Liposuction is becoming a common and popular form of cosmetic surgery as a quick way of removing excess fat from the body and improving appearance in an easy and cost-effective manner. It is becoming a popular option for anyone who wants quick results!

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure whereby fat deposits are surgically removed from a specific area of the body. It includes, but is not limited to, abdomen, arms, knees, thighs, breasts, buttocks and other areas where excess fat accumulates. Surgeons recommend that people within their normal weight range will achieve the best result from the procedure.

Liposuction is considered a relatively simple and safe procedure with a short recovery. However, some people - particularly women - are disappointed with the results. A major reason for this is having high expectations that cannot be met by the surgery and a lack of understanding of the facts about liposuction before and after the procedure.

A few things should be understood about liposuction before and after surgery when you make your decision to go ahead. Only with a full understanding of all the facts can you really decide whether this type of surgery is suitable for you. Hence, before you make your decision you should discuss your expectations and concerns with at least two specialized surgeons and seek their expert opinion.

Many times women want to have as much fat as possible removed from an area of their body in one operation. Sometimes this is possible, but frequently this would invite serious side-effects including the risk of shock and can also deliver an undesirable result. Other complications are the possibility of clot formation in the area where a canula has been inserted for too long a period, or a lumpy appearance in the region where fat has been removed.

The outcome for the liposuction procedure can be greatly affected post-operative draining. After the fat is removed, the usual procedure is to leave the incisions open to allow draining of excess fluid and blood, and to control edema.

Absorbent pads are placed over the affected area which capture the drained fluid. The pads are held in place with a compression liposuction garment. For surgery on the face and neck the liposuction garment is generally worn for about 18 to 36 hours. For other areas of the body the compression garment is worn until the draining has finished.

In addition to liposuction compression garments and absorbent pads, there are several other ways to drain the fluid rapidly including leaving the incision open so the fluid can drain out naturally.

Rapid drainage is encouraged because it will assist in a faster post-operative healing process, reduce pain considerably, and also reduce the formation of bruising. A comprehensive understanding of liposuction before and after surgery will help to produce a satisfactory outcome.
