Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat from specific body areas. This may help improve the way the body looks. There are several different types of liposuction using ultrasound, laser, or fluid injections. Liposuction is not a substitute for eating right and exercising. For lasting results, you will have to control your weight., even after liposuction. Discuss your treatment goals with your doctor. He or she can tell you more about what to expect, as well as the method of liposuction that will be used for you.
Prepare as you have been told. In addition:
A. Tell your doctor about all medicines you take. This includes herbs and other supplements and any illegal or illicit drugs. It also includes any blood thinners, such as warfarin, clopidogrel, or daily aspirin. You may need to stop taking some or all of them before surgery.
B. Do not eat or drink during the 8 hours before your surgery, or as directed by your surgeon. This includes coffee, water, gum, and mints. (If you have been instructed to take medicines, take them with a small sip of water.)
The procedure can take 1 to 5 hours, depending on how many areas are being treated and the technique used. You may go home the same day. Or you may stay 1 or more nights.
Before the procedure begins:
A. An IV line is put into a vein in your arm or hand. This line delivers fluids and medications.
B. You will be given medicine to keep you pain free during surgery. This may be general anesthesia, which puts you into a state like deep sleep. A tube may be inserted into your throat to help you breathe. In some cases, sedation is given instead. This medicine relaxes you and makes you sleep lightly. If you have sedation, local anesthetic will be used to numb the areas being worked on. The anesthesiologist will discuss your options with you.
C. The skin over the sites to be worked on is marked with a sterile pen.
During the procedure:
A. Fluid is injected into the surgical areas. This makes it easier to remove fat. The fluid also contains medication to numb the site and reduce pain and bleeding.
B. One or more small incisions are made in the skin over the marked sites.
C. A thin metal tube called a cannula is placed through an incision into the fat layer under the skin. The cannula is attached to a small vacuum or syringe. As the cannula is moved back and forth, excess fat is suctioned out. Ultrasound, laser, or mechanical tools may also be used. These help loosen or remove fat.
D. When the procedure is done, the cannula and other tools are removed.
E. Incisions are closed with stitches (sutures). These may dissolve on their own. Or they may need to be removed at a later date. In certain cases, incisions are left open to heal. The surgical sites may be bandaged.
After the surgery
You will be taken to a room to wake up from the anesthesia. You may feel sleepy and nauseated. If a breathing tube was used, your throat may be sore at first. You will be given medicine to help prevent infection and manage pain. You will also likely be given compression garments to wear. These reduce swelling and help form a smooth shape. When you’re ready, you will be released to go home. Have an adult family member or friend drive you.
