Liposuction – Are the Side Effects Worth it?

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that involves removing fat through a thin follow tube called a cannula. The doctor literally is able to suck fat out of the body with liposuction. Say good-bye to all those stubborn problem areas!

The idea candidate for liposuction is someone who is in good health both mentally and physically, has realistic expectations, and has thoroughly researched both the procedure and doctor who is to be performing the surgery. Some patients are simply unhappy with the results of the plastic surgery because they did not know what they were getting themselves into. The liposuction side effects are very minor, but you should still do your research.

The perform the liposuction surgery, the doctor will begin by putting you under anesthesia, either general or local, but most likely local. He will them make tiny incisions where the cannula will be inserted to suck the fat out. A machine will assist him in sucking the fat out.  He will then stitch up the incisions, the rest of the liposuction recovery phase can begin.

At the beginning of the liposuction recovery period, you will experience some pain and soreness. This will be fairly mild however, and you shouldn’t need more than two or perhaps three days off from work, depending on what type of job you have (if your job requires  lot of strenuous manual labor, then you will obviously take more time off). There will also be a lot of swelling and bruising during the early phases of the liposuction recovery, however these will fade over time and shouldn’t be an issue a month down the road.

If you are worried about liposuction side effects, you probably shouldn’t be as they are generally quite mild. Most people will tolerate the side effects of liposuction and liposuction recovery quite well.
