Before having any sort of cosmetic procedure it is important that you ask yourself why you want the procedure. It can be helpful to talk to any family or friends who have undergone liposuction to understand their experience with the procedure.
Before liposuction your doctor will have discussed the procedure with you and decided how they are going to remove the fat based on where you want to fat to be removed from, they will also have explained to you the risks of the surgery.
Before the operation will not be able to eat or drink at least 6 hours before in case the anaesthetic medication makes you sick. You will also be asked to remove nail varnish, make-up and jewellery.
After the procedure, the wound will be stitched up and covered in a bandage, and you may need to wear special compression clothing in order to reduce swelling. You may also need to stay overnight in the hospital, but you may also be able to go home the same day.
It takes around 2 weeks to be fully recovered, but results may not be noticeable for some months, as the treated area may need that time to settle down. Like all surgeries, liposuction carries a number of risks. These include bruising, infection, scarring, irregularities and numbness of the treated area after the procedure. A specialist plastic surgeon will be able to further inform you about the procedure.
