Liposuction Insights: Expert Advice for You

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat deposits from your body. It works great for people who want to reshape their bodies but can’t get the right results with conventional methods such as modifying their diet or increasing physical activity. 

However, to know whether you are the right candidate for liposuction you must consult an expert medical professional. They can recommend the best options according to your desired results. Expert advice can help you to know more about its benefits, complications, cost etc. 

Understanding Liposuction

Liposuction uses the principle of suction to suck and pull out stubborn fat pockets from different body parts like:

  • Stomach
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Chest 
  • Arms 
  • Neck

While liposuction can help you get rid of extra body fat, it is important to know that it is not a weight loss procedure. It can only help in restructuring and enhancing the shape of specific body parts through surgery. 

The technique of liposuction was developed by Italian doctors named Giorgio Fischer and Arpad in 1974. During those times, they called it ‘Blunt Tunneling Surgery’

Although the technique was good enough, sedation, morbidity risks, etc were some drawbacks. 

To eliminate those drawbacks, Pierre Fournier and Yves-Gerard Illouz, two French doctors, modified the technique in 1978. Throughout the 1980s, the efforts to improve the technique and make it less painful and risky continued ultimately leading to the introduction of Tumescent liposuction by Dr Klein. 

Further developments led to the introduction of fat liquefaction and improved anaesthesia. These new developments have made liposuction a more comfortable and convenient procedure that causes minimum pain and shows extraordinary results. 

Eligibility for Liposuction

Here are the general criteria that makes a person eligible for liposuction:

  • Average or a little more than average body weight.
  • High skin elasticity
  • Good muscle tone
  • No underlying diseases 
  • Healthy body
  • Non-smokers 
  • Non-vapers
  • People who have already decided their target goals and do not have any kind of unrealistic expectations from the surgery

Even though liposuction is an excellent option to eliminate extra body fat, it might not work for everyone in the same way. In fact, there are some specific conditions in which a person becomes non-eligible for liposuction surgery. These conditions include:

  • Being underweight
  • Body Mask Index (BMI) greater than 25 mark
  • People who have a severe or life-threatening disease
  • People having diseases or disorders which interfere with proper healing 
  • Low-quality skin
  • People who have unrealistic expectations from liposuction surgery

Types of Liposuction

Here is a list of the different types of liposuction methods:

  • Tumescent Liposuction 
  • Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction
  • VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance)
  • Suction-Assisted Liposuction 
  • Power-Assisted Liposuction
  • Laser-Assisted Liposuction

Among these, Tumescent liposuction (the traditional method of liposuction), Ultrasound-assisted liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction are the most popular methods.

Tumescent Liposuction (Traditional liposuction): It involves injecting a saltwater (saline) solution into the areas with fat deposition. The solution initiates the shrinking of your nerves and fat is removed easily with minimum blood loss. 

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction: The method comprises fat removal by its liquefaction using ultrasound energy that comes from a metal rod which is placed under your skin.

Laser-Assisted Liposuction: It involves fat reduction with strong laser light that breaks down and melts your fat for easy removal. This method does not need many small cuts on your body making it better than other procedures. 

Benefits and Goals

Some benefits of liposuction include:

  • Liposuction is a safe procedure for fat removal.
  • Liposuction results in better body shape and helps to improve your self-confidence and self-esteem by enhancing the way you look. 
  • It works even for the areas that show little to no change after following a strict diet or undergoing extensive physical exercise for fat reduction. 
  • Removing excess fats from your body is good for your health in the long term.
  • It is a good solution for people having problems like gynecomastia, lipomas, lipodystrophy syndrome etc.
  • It produces more subtle and natural-looking results.

However, to get the maximum benefits you have to have realistic goals and expectations. You must also have the patience to wait for the final results as recovery can take time in some cases. Also, it is crucial to carry out thorough discussions with your surgeon before the surgery to get the best recommendations as per your goals.

Risks and Potential Complications

Although liposuction is mostly safe, there is still some risk involved which can lead to side effects. Common complications include—

  • Skin sensitivity issues
  • Infection
  • Pain in the surgical site
  • Scarring
  • Delayed wound healing
  • Skin discoloration
  • Contour irregularities
  • Fluid buildup

Therefore, to eliminate the potential risks, it is important to choose a good surgeon who can use the right methods and knows the technique to apply them most safely. Hiring a well-qualified and trained medical professional can help you get a pleasant overall surgical experience. 

Customized Treatment Plans

The surgical needs of every person are different because of differences in body shape and expectations. Hence, it is essential to create a customized treatment plan to achieve the most optimal outcomes. 

Personalized plans help the surgeon to provide patient-centred care as they enable them to provide more attention to detailing according to the anatomy of the patient. 

A good surgeon is someone who will include you in the process of decision-making through consultations. They will also carry out diagnostic tests, offer advice on the best available options and suggest the most suitable technique to fit your budget as well as preferences.

They are dedicated to tailoring treatment plans as per patient requirements and have the best technology and tools to apply the methods in a safe, effective and painless way 

Preparing for Liposuction

Before the procedure, you have to follow certain preparatory steps to get ready for the liposuction surgery. These can include:

  • Lab tests
  • Dietary restrictions
  • Alcohol avoidance
  • Stopping the intake of supplements and certain medications

Additionally, you must be very transparent in providing your surgeon with information about your medical history. 

Communicating the medical history is crucial to liposuction as it helps the surgeon provide better tips to prepare accordingly. Some medicines that you might be taking may not complement liposuction and need to be stopped temporarily for best outcomes. 

Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery time differs for every patient according to the area under consideration. 

Generally, healing takes up to 6 months and you will be recommended to take more rest and avoid strenuous physical activity for the initial 6 weeks.

Some tips which can help you recover faster and easier include:

  • Staying well hydrated
    Having a balanced diet
  • Giving enough rest to your body
  • Going for a walk regularly

Costs and Financing

The average cost of liposuction in India starts at Rs. 35,000 and can go up to Rs. 3,00,000. 

Factors influencing the overall liposuction cost include:

  • Clinic’s Reputation 
  • Surgeon’s Experience  
  • Locations of the clinic
  • Cost of anaesthesia and other medications
  • Complexity of the process
  • Target areas
  • Cost of compression garments 
  • Charges of  follow-up appointments
  • Facility charges


To conclude, whether you are the right candidate for liposuction depends on a lot of factors including your current body weight and your overall health condition. 

Consulting a good and well-certified medical professional can help you to get a better diagnosis and recommendations which can help you make a more informed decision. You must also carry out your individual research to know more.
