During the procedure, a small incision is made in the treatment area, and a thin cannula (a hollow tube) is inserted through the incision. The cannula is then used to suction out excess fat from the underlying tissue. The cannula is moved back and forth to break up the fat and suction it out. The incisions are then closed with sutures or surgical glue.
After the procedure, patients typically experience some swelling and bruising, which will gradually subside over the course of several weeks. Compression garments may be worn to help reduce swelling and improve the final results.
Full body liposuction is not a weight-loss solution, it’s a body contouring procedure that removes stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. The best candidates for full body liposuction are individuals who are at or near their ideal body weight, but have areas of unwanted fat that they would like to be removed.
It’s important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if full body liposuction is the right procedure for you.
