What are the benefits of liposuction?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure used to reduce or eliminate fat in certain areas of the body, resulting in a more sculpted and leaner appearance. It can be used on its own or in combination with other body contouring procedures.

Am I suitable?

Liposuction is a procedure that can help reduce fatty deposits in areas such as the chin, saddlebags, bra roll, mons pubis, thighs, arms, buttocks, abdomen, and calves, even when diet and exercise are not effective. An abdominoplasty is recommended for those with loose, sagging skin in order to maintain a firm and elastic appearance.

How to prepare for the liposuction procedure

It is important to prepare for liposuction prior to the procedure to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results. If you have any questions, call the patient advisor team at Esteport Clinic for assistance. Liposuction can be a beneficial procedure, but it is important to be in good health and to commit to long-term lifestyle changes such as healthy eating and regular exercise. The surgeon will assess if the patient is suitable for the procedure, as those who are obese or have chronic medical conditions may not be ideal candidates.

Esteport Clinic performs liposuction as a day case procedure. Patients must have a responsible adult to escort them home and they must collect their antibiotics and pain medications before the procedure. Follow-up appointments on the day of the procedure are necessary to ensure proper healing, and it is useful to have help for the first few days after the procedure for everyday tasks.

What does liposuction involve?

Our Esteport clinic offers liposuction as a day-case procedure, meaning patients are admitted and discharged on the same day. During the procedure, general anaesthesia is typically used, though local anaesthetic may be used for smaller areas. On average, it takes about an hour per area, so liposuction of 4 areas takes about 4 hours to complete. Once the surgeon is satisfied with the amount of fat removed, dissolvable sutures are used to close the small incisions made for cannula access, and a compression garment is applied to reduce bruising and swelling and aid in healing.

Liposuction recovery

Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which may require taking two to three days off work for recovery. If multiple areas have been treated, additional time off work may be necessary. Anaesthetists use TIVA anaesthesia which is a more advanced form of general anaesthesia, allowing for a faster wake-up time and reduced risk of postoperative nausea and vomiting. After liposuction, patients may need one week off work to help with resolution of bruising and swelling, while pain and discomfort can be managed with painkillers. A compression garment should be worn for 6 weeks to reduce discomfort and swelling.

Liposuction swelling may take up to three to five months to subside, but exercise can begin after a few weeks, with more strenuous exercise avoided for the first four weeks. Recovery should be complete after 6 weeks, with visible results between 3-6 months. To reduce risk of swelling and DVT/PE, it is important to stay mobile. Massaging the areas where liposuction was performed can help with healing and recovery, and in some cases, a specialist MLD therapist may be recommended for more sessions.

Risks and complications of liposuction

Liposuction has been a safe and successful procedure for over 20 years and is performed at Esteport Clinic by experienced plastic surgeons. Although complications are rare, potential risks and complications will be discussed in detail during the consultation.

How to minimise scars after liposuction

Liposuction incisions are small and need to be properly taken care of to optimise scar appearance. It is important to avoid traumatising the incisions, keep dressings on for the recommended duration and not wear tight-fitting clothing. Most incisions will heal in 2 weeks with correct postoperative instructions. Once healed, your surgeon may advise you on optimum scar appearance methods and it is important to avoid or minimise sun exposure to improve scar healing.

Choosing the right compression garment for liposuction

A liposuction compression garment is an important part of recovering from liposuction, providing even pressure over the treated areas. They come in a variety of designs and styles. Compression garments must be worn for a certain period of time after liposuction, depending on the areas treated and the amount of liposuction done. Longer periods of wear are necessary for larger volumes of fat extraction.

Compression garments should be firm, but not too tight, as an overly tight fit can cause pressure sores and difficulty breathing. Post-liposuction swelling is due to excess tissue water collecting in the cavities created, and the patient may need to switch to a smaller garment for the best fit as the swelling resolves. It is important to ensure that liposuction compression garments fit properly, as ill-fitting garments can cause swelling and disrupt the body’s normal lymphatic drainage pathways, leading to prolonged inflammation of the treatment areas. If the garment does not feel like it fits correctly, the patient should notify their plastic surgeon.
