Liposuction, also known as fat suction or suction lipectomy, is a technique used to remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the chin, neck, cheeks, upper arms, back, flanks, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. Several different liposuction techniques may be used, either alone or in combination with each other, including the tumescent, ultrasonic (UAL) and power assisted (PAL) liposuction methods. Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method of removing localized fat that does not respond to dieting and/or exercise. You will be able to walk immediately after surgery but will be told to avoid more strenuous activities for two to four weeks. Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic operation that we perform. You can usually retrun to work in 4 – 7 days depending on the number of areas treated.
