What No One Tells You About Liposuction

Liposuction is likely to be done on an outpatient basis if you are only having a small quantity of fat removed and you will be able to return home that day. If on the other hand you are having a more extensive procedure and a large quantity of fat is being removed from more than one area of your body then it may be done on an inpatient basis and you will have to remain in hospital for one to two days. There are three different types of anesthesia that can be used and it all depends on the surgical plan that is put into play by the plastic surgeon. The three kinds of anesthesia include local, regional or general anesthesia.

Local anesthesia is when the patient is given a light sedative and the area to be operated on is numbed. The patient will remain awake during the surgical procedure however they will feel relaxed and will not experience any amount of pain. Local anesthesia is used when only a small area of the body is to be operated on. Regional anesthesia means that the patient will be lightly sedated and then a larger region of the body will be numbed. The patient will be awake during the entire procedure but will feel as relaxed as possible and will suffer no pain. The best example of regional anesthesia is the epidural block that is used when a woman is giving birth. General anesthesia is most often used when large areas of the body are being operated on. In this case, the patient will be asleep while the procedure is being performed.

Liposuction can be performed by way of two different techniques, which include fluid injection, or ultrasound assisted lipoplasty (UAL). Fluid injection can be broken down into the tumescent technique and the super-wet technique. The plastic surgeon will decide which method is best according to the patient’s specific situation.

Many people make the mistake of assuming that because liposuction gets rid of fat cells permanently that it is not possible to gain weight ever again in the area where surgery was performed. This is only half of the truth. All adults have a fixed quantity of fat cells and having liposuction does get rid of some of these cells for good. However the fat cells that are left behind have a tendency to get larger and this happens most readily if the patient does not maintain a healthy diet after the surgery and does not exercise on a regular basis. In other words, life after liposuction can mean that the possibility of gaining weight is still there. Be aware though that gaining weight after liposuction means that the extra pounds will be distributed to other spots of the body where surgery was not performed as opposed to remaining where the person was inclined to put on weight before the surgery.
