Liposuction is a technique that has changed greatly over time. Modern liposuction methods have evolved significantly from their predecessors, offering less invasive procedures with faster and more stable recovery times. 

These advanced techniques yield smoother and more satisfying results. Utilizing smaller and refined instruments, liposuction can achieve intricate body contouring in various areas, ensuring a precise and aesthetically pleasing outcome.


To qualify for liposuction, individuals should have a healthy BMI range, which is calculated by dividing weight in kilograms by the square of height in meters. A higher BMI signifies a higher body fat percentage. Generally, it is advisable for patients to have a BMI below 30 before considering liposuction as an option.

Advanced liposuction is often performed as an outpatient procedure with local anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Initially, a solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine is infused into the targeted area to minimize bleeding, trauma, and discomfort.

A small, discreet incision is made during the procedure, and a cannula is inserted beneath the skin to loosen and remove fat. The length of the procedure varies depending on the treatment area and the amount of fat to be eliminated.

The recovery process for liposuction looks different for everyone, depending on the extent of the procedure and the patient’s unique healing capabilities. Generally, patients may experience mild to moderate discomfort, bruising, and swelling in the treated areas. Compression garments are often worn to minimize swelling and support the healing process.

Most individuals can resume light activities within a few days but should avoid strenuous exercise for several weeks. The final results gradually appear as swelling subsides, and the full outcome may take a few months to be evident. Regular follow-up visits with the surgeon are essential to monitor progress and ensure a smooth recovery.

What can liposuction do for the body?

Liposuction targets stubborn fat pockets, enhancing body contours and providing a more youthful appearance. Removed fat cells can't store fat, aiding weight loss efforts. Laser liposuction also boosts collagen production, reducing wrinkles and skin laxity while improving overall contours.

When are the results noticeable after liposuction?

Once the healing process has been completed, the body’s new contours are quite obvious.

How long do the results from liposuction last?

As long as the patient is able to maintain a healthy weight, the results will last a very long time.

Will I have to wear a compression garment after the procedure?

Patients are often given compression garments in order to keep down the swelling. More information regarding compression garments will be provided during the consultation.

What is a liposuction cannula?

In liposuction procedures, a cannula (a tiny stainless steel tube) is used to remove subcutaneous fat from the body. The procedure involves making a small incision in the skin through which the cannula is inserted.

What areas of the body can be treated with liposuction?

Midsection, Waist, Back area, Butt, Thighs, Knees, Breasts Underarms, Neck.
