Liposuction surgery is performed on the patients to remove unwanted fat and flab from their body. Patients suffering from excess skin flab and excess fat deposits may benefit from this procedure. This is the most popular type of cosmetic surgery today.
Some of the common types of liposuction that are done are the abdominoplasty (or abdominoplasty revision) and the gastric bypass. Another popular type of liposuction surgery is the abdominoplasty (or abdominoplasty revision) and the mini-bikini. The mini-bikini is an outpatient procedure and the patients should expect to be back home the day after surgery. This procedure is also done under local anesthesia.
A patient with excess skin flab and fat deposits may be given anesthesia to numb the skin and prevent any complications. The liposuction surgeon will carefully remove the fat by using suction. Liposuction is usually an outpatient procedure and the patients can return home the same day after surgery.
The plastic surgeon performs the surgery under general anesthesia. The patient will be monitored throughout the procedure and sedated if needed. After surgery, patients will need to take pain medication for a few days. Patients who experience problems or complications from the procedure may be advised to seek the services of a hospital doctor or emergency room doctor.
Before undergoing this type of procedure, the plastic surgeon performs a complete physical examination of the patient. This includes a general physical to determine whether the patient is healthy enough to undergo the procedure and if the patient has any health risks that could prevent the procedure. This includes an evaluation of the patient’s heart and lungs as well as any other health issues that may be contributing to the condition of the patient.
After the surgery, patients are able to return home after a few hours. They may experience some mild discomfort and bruising. The patient should keep the areas that have been operated on covered for several days so that the area does not swell or discolor. After two to three weeks, patients can return to their normal activities.
Patients should contact a doctor as soon as possible if they experience any type of side effects or complications after liposuction. This may include swelling or bleeding that is not expected. A patient should also be evaluated by a physician if there is an abnormal reaction to the anesthesia. This could include excessive sweating, difficulty breathing, or difficulty in swallowing.
Patients should talk with their doctors before undergoing liposuction if they have any health issues. This could include high blood pressure or a history of heart or lung problems. This type of procedure could also affect a patient’s ability to work or an operation that uses a large amount of fat could be affected.
Before a patient is given the go-ahead for the procedure, a patient should discuss the procedure with a physician. The physician will make sure that the patient has all the time to recover properly following the procedure. A patient should make an appointment with a physician who will help them determine if the procedure is right for them. The patient should also ask about the possibility of having another procedure done in the future.
