What Is Liposuction?

Sometimes called lipo, lipoplasty, or liposculpture suction lipectomy, this cosmetic surgical procedure removes fat from specific areas of the body.

Generally, the legs, arms, thighs, buttocks, or abdomen is targeted in this procedure. This surgery is usually recommended for patients with persistent areas of body fat that do not respond well to exercise or diet.

The best candidate for liposuction is a healthy adult between the ages of 18-49. Liposuction should not be performed on individuals who are pregnant, have high blood pressure, blood thinning issues or certain medication allergies. A successful liposuction procedure can give the patient’s body a more toned appearance.

How is Liposuction Performed?

How the body fat is removed depends on how much of it there is. When a small area is involved in this procedure, it can be performed as outpatient surgery. In such a scenario, local anesthesia is applied to the area in question. Small incisions are made between the patient’s skin and muscle. A surgical device is used to break up excess body fat, which is removed with either a suction pump or a syringe.

Newer techniques breakup or liquefy the body fat with ultrasound or lasers. For cases with larger amounts of fat or issues that prevent outpatient surgery, the patient is put under anesthesia and may have to stay overnight.
