Introduction *

Anesthetic: General
Recuperation: 10 days
Required pre-surgical tests: All patients undergoing general anesthesia fir their liposuction are required to have a preoperative medical evaluation and some routine laboratory tests to assess their general medical condition.

For whom? *

• The best candidates for a liposuction have firm, elastic skin with pockets of excess fat in certain areas.
• You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations.
• Your age is not a major consideration; however, older patients may have diminished skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin.
• Liposuction carries greater risk for individuals with medical problems such as diabetes, significant heart or lung disease, poor blood circulation, or those who have recently had surgery near the area to be contoured.

What is the procedure liposuction? *

• Liposuction is a procedure in which localized deposits of fat are removed to recontour one or more areas of the body. 
• Through a tiny incision, a narrow tube or cannula is inserted and used to vacuum the fat layer that lies deep beneath the skin. The cannula is pushed then pulled through the fat layer, breaking up the fat cells and suctioning them out. 
• The suction action is provided by a vacuum pump or a large syringe, depending on the surgeon's preference. If many sites are being treated, your surgeon will then move on to the next area, working to keep the incisions as inconspicuous as possible.
• Fluid is lost along with the fat, and it's crucial that this fluid be replaced during the procedure to prevent shock. For this reason, patients need to be carefully monitored and receive intravenous fluids during and immediately after surgery. 

Length of the operation liposuction *

• 1h to 2h30

Post operation *

• After your liposuction, you will likely experience some fluid drainage from the incisions.
• To control swelling and to help your skin better fit its new contours, you may be fitted with a snug elastic garment to wear over the treated area for a few weeks. Your doctor may also prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection
.• Even though the newer techniques are believed to reduce some post-operative discomforts, you may still experience some pain, burning, swelling, bleeding and temporary numbness.

• Back to work: 1 to 2 weeks.
