Liposuction is the procedure of removing the excess fat tissue on certain areas of the body through vacuum. However, even if the liposuction is perceived as weight-loss method among people, it is a wrong information, for the liposuction is not weight-loss operation, but only a contour improvement operation.
In order to get successful results in liposuction procedure, one should check whether primarily the health condition and additionally the skin elasticity and the weight of the patient is compatible for this procedure. Because the fat amount needed to be removed from the patient in this treatment should be as much as 5% of his/her weight.
For example, 3.5 or 4 liter fat tissue that is to be removed from the body of a person who is 25 kg overweight will not give a significant result for the patient's body. So the patient will not be pleased with the treatment. Only if such an amount of fat tissue is removed from a person who is 10 kg overweight, this procedure might ensure a slimming about 2 sizes.
Liposuction procedure lasts about 1 to 3 hours depending on the extent of the operation. After the treatment, a girdle should be used for about 3 to 4 weeks since it ensures that the patient gets rid of the oedema faster.
Operation should be performed in a full-fledged hospital. Whether or not the patient will be hosted in hospital or when he/she might get back to his/her social life varies by the extent of the procedure. Even if the liposuction is known as painful procedure, today it has become much more comfortable.
