If you are looking to improve your midsection and have a sharper waist, liposuction can give you the results you are looking for. Liposuction will remove excess and stubborn fat that would not disappear with diet and exercise. Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove the fat from the body and the results are usually permanent. It is an outpatient procedure and is performed under sedation or general anesthesia.
The amount of fat removed will depend on the patient's desired look. In general the desired look can be divided into two types:
1- Soft look.
2- Muscular look.
For patients who desire a softer look, more fat will be left compared to the muscular look.
Recovery from liposuction is usually straightforward. Pain after surgery is usually managed with oral painkillers. You can shower the next day and there will be no drains. The recovery will involve having to wear a garment. Dr. Jaibaji will advise you on a suitable return to work schedule during your consultation.
The areas that liposuction can significantly change are:
1- The abdomen, above and below the belly button.
2- The waist area.
3- The back.
4- The axilla.
5- The thighs.
