What is liposuction surgery?
There are several different types of liposuction surgery, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common type of these types is traditional liposuction, which uses a suction pump to remove excess fat from the body. Traditional liposuction is widely considered to be the gold standard of all types.
Laser liposuction uses a laser to melt away excess fat, and ultrasonic liposuction uses sound waves to break down fat cells. Both procedures utilize newer techniques that can achieve great results. No matter what type of liposuction surgery you choose, you can expect to experience some side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and soreness. Despite these mostly minor discomforts, liposuction is a safe and effective way to remove excess fat from the body.
Immediately after surgery, you will be placed in compression garments to minimize swelling and maximize your results. Your incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures, which will not need to be removed. You can usually return to work after 1 week post-op. It will be important to minimize aggressive activity until 4-6 weeks and continue to wear your compression garment for at least 3 months.
