Liposuction

Updated on August 16, 2007

Liposuction

What is liposuction?

Removes unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the chin, neck and cheeks; the upper arm and above the breasts; the abdomen; buttocks; hips and thighs; the knees, calves and ankles Suction assisted lipectomy - also known as liposuction, is a technique to remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the chin, neck and cheeks; the upper arm and above the breasts; the abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs; the knees, calves and ankles.

    Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method of removing localised fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence.

Your new look

liposuction is a highly effective technique for giving you a new body contour with very little scarring. The results can be permanent, providing you eat sensibly and exercise regularly. If you do gain weight, you'll probably gain it more uniformly throughout your body, not just in the former 'bulges'. Most patients are very satisfied with the results of liposuction.

Planning your surgery....

Your surgeon will evaluate your health, determine where your fat deposits lie and carefully assess your skin tone. It is best for you and the surgeon to be frank with each other, in discussing your

expectations, the alternatives and the risks and limitations for each. In any case, your surgeon will work with you to recommend the procedure that is right for you, explain the anaesthesia that will be used and will come closest to producing the desired body contour. Be sure to tell your surgeon about any large weight losses or gains at any time and inform your surgeon if you smoke, if you're taking any medications, vitamins, or other drugs.Your surgeon will discuss your medical history and will check for medical conditions that could cause problems during or after surgery. He will explain the techniques and anaesthesia and any risks involved, and will answer any questions you may have, especially those regarding your expectations and concerns about the results.

For surgery you need to stay for 24 Hours, which includes generally a 1 night stay, sometimes more, in the clinic and gives time for your recovery and primary post-operative care before returning home.

Getting back to normal....

There isn't usually significant discomfort after surgery and you should be up and about in a day, but plan on taking it easy at first. Your surgeon will give you more specific guidelines for gradually resuming your normal activities but above all, get plenty of rest and allow your body to spend its energy on healing. Most patients can resume work just a few days after surgery.

      hi there

      Its nice to know that someone is prepared to actually sit down and write a nice testimonial about the service they have received from someone. I see that Liposuction is one of the top surgeries performed and the Cost In France is much less than other countries. I just checked some prices to campare and you are correct.

      Prices are about 20 to 30% less than other countries, and can be as much as 60% less than the USA...wow its worth that rip to europe after all....

      I keep thinking about Liposuction as a quick fix for the 45lbs that I have put on since my wife got pregnant.

      The trouble is that I am a coward, I thought it would be a much more indepth process and need more time away from work than you mention.

      Thanks for the information, maybe I will ask for Liposuction for christmas.
