Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove fat from beneath the skin. The procedure is performed with a narrow suction device. Some devices use ultrasound to help break down fat. Liposuction can be used to target a range of areas, including abdomen, hips, thighs, calves, arms, buttocks, back, neck, or face. Liposuction can target stubborn, unwanted fat deposits in patients who are slightly overweight or who have a normal weight but have fat build-ups in one area. Liposuction is not recommended as a treatment for obesity, as surgeons can only remove a limited amount of fat. Liposuction can be performed on:

  • Abdomen  
  • Breasts
  • Hips
  • Outer thighs
  • Anterior thighs
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees arms
  • Buttocks
  • Cheeks
  • Neck
  • Chin

  • The patient should not smoke
  • The patient’s skin should be elastic with firmness
  • The patient should be close to their goal weight.
  • The patient should fulfil the other health requirements

Types of Liposuction

  • Tumescent liposuction – A sterile solution is injected in the fatty region which results in easy suction of the fat with less blood loss and pain.
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction – Sound wave energies are used to rupture the cell walls of fat under the skin. This leads to liquification of fat, resulting in easy suction of the fat.  
  • Laser-assisted liposuction (SmartLipo) – A laser assisted surgery which produces a burst of energy that liquifies the fat.
