In a typical liposuction surgical procedure, excess fat is removed from your body’s specific localized areas by means of a thin, hollow tube called cannula.

How does a cannula perform liposuction?

Irrespective of the different liposuction packages offered by numerous, leading cosmetic clinics in CA, the main surgery involves insertion of the cannula by way of small incisions made in certain fatty areas of the body. The cannula is then moved to melt the fat. Consequently, the liquefied fat is eliminated via suction by making use of a vacuum pump or a cannula-affixed syringe. After the treatment has ended, your body areas will appear slimmer and well-contoured.

Who are the candidates for liposuction?

They should have overall good health except for a few areas in their body containing excess fat that don’t respond well to either exercise or diet. Targeted areas of liposuction include abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, chest, calves etc. It may be noted that liposuction can be done in a solitary manner or in combination with other surgical interventions like abdominoplasty. The liposuction prices too vary accordingly.

The sequence of events that follow liposuction

  • Once your liposuction is completed, you’ll be made to wear a compression outfit custom-designed prior to the commencement of the procedure.
  • You’ll then be transferred to the recovery room. You’ll be kept under watchful monitoring inside the recovery room. All your vital parameters including blood pressure and oxygen levels will be examined and analyzed. Care should be taken to observe and ensure that signs of nausea or dizziness don’t float up. In case they do, you’ll be given proper post-operative treatment to arrest those symptoms. You can expect an acquittal from the liposuction recovery room nearly an hour after the completion of the procedure.
  • In the course of the next 24 hours, you may expect a fluid discharge from the tiny incisions. This is a normal indication and shouldn’t cause any alarming situation.
  • Once the procedure is over, for the initial five days you need to
  • Keep on wearing the compression garment
  • Sustain on fluids
  • Abstain from taking a bath or shower
  • Make movements every two hours to prevent clot formation, induce fluid circulation inside your body and lessen swelling.
  • You make the post-operative visit to the clinic on the fifth day. You’ll be examined thoroughly by removing the compression garment. For the next week and a half, you need to wear the garment round-the-clock. You can remove it only when you take a shower. You can also do light exercises like walking or stretching.
  • Finally, you can resume your normal day-to-day activities two weeks after the procedure.
