Liposuction has become one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery today.

During liposuction, a surgeon removes fat in areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. Common areas treated include the hips, thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, face, and neck. Liposuction is most successful in people with good skin tone who have localized problem areas.

It is not a treatment for obesity.

To maintain the safety of the procedure, there is a limit on how much can be done at one time.

The time required to perform liposuction varies depending on a number of factors including the size of the area, the amount of fat being removed, and the type of anesthesia.

The procedure is done through several, less than 1 cm incisions and is usually performed on an outpatient basis. Following the procedure, the patient is fitted with a snug elastic garment to minimize the bruising and swelling and provide support while healing.

Most people describe the discomfort associated with the procedure as a soreness similar to a bad bruise and take about a week off work.

Results are visible immediately, although they will also improve as the swelling subsides. Most of the swelling dissipates within the first month, although there is a small amount of swelling up to 6 months following surgery.
