From this article, I guess we would have answered the various questions you may have about Liposuction. We commonly brand liposuction as a “fat regulating technique” simply because it offers a permanent solution for attaining that dream body shape.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is at times referred to as Lipo or Lipoplasty a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes unwanted or stubborn fat (fat deposits or cells) from the body. A specialized tool is used to eliminate this fat to achieve the best contours for an individual.

An incision will be made in the intended region
A specialized instrument, known as the cannula and the vacuum device will be used to suck out the fat from the body
Which body parts are applicable to Liposuction?
Almost the whole body can undergo liposuction. Some of the regions that can undergo a Liposuction surgery in India include;
The facial region
How much fat can one loose after liposuction
Modern techniques of fat have provided minimally invasive procedures that help a surgeon to remove more fat in one or two sessions. 8-9 pounds of fat can be removed through liposuction by an experienced cosmetic surgeon.
Misconceptions about Liposuction
Some obese individuals may suggest liposuction to reduce their weight, but that is ideally false. Liposuction isn’t a weight losing technique, but rather a fat elimination technique.
A given amount of fat is removed during the procedure with the fact that your body requires fat for energy production, formulation of the body volume, protection of the organs among others.
What else can be treated with Liposuction?
Gynecomastia- this is the enlargement of the male breasts (glandular tissue, fat, and the skin). During the procedure, the surgeon will remove the glandular tissue, excessive fat and the skin to achieve a firmer chest.
Lipomas– this is also referred to as benign fatty tumors
Lipodystrophy– this occurs where there issues of fat metabolism
What is the cost of Liposuction?
The surgery varies as per the technique used, centre and the amount of fat to be removed. A Liposuction Surgery Cost in India widely begins from $500. Your demands highly matter.
What’s the difference between Liposuction, Liposculpture, and tummy tuck?
Liposuction has existed for more than 4 decades and it is the leading cosmetic surgery performed today. Liposuction normally requires general anesthesia as well as larger incisions to remove the unwanted fat from the body.
This is more precise where a tiny incision is made in the intended region and a tiny cannula of 1mm is used. This results in minimal scarring and a short recovery period.
A tummy tuck surgery is comprehensive and can be performed alongside other plastic surgeries such as face lifting and so on. Fat can also be transferred from one region to another where it is required.
A tummy tuck surgery involves eliminating undesired flab and the abdominal muscles are tightened at the end of the procedure.
When is Liposuction Recommended after pregnancy?
Much as you may desire to eliminate the bulging tummy after pregnancy, you may have to re-consider before undergoing liposuction. Various factors such as the type of birth, i.e C-section or normal, one’s lifestyle, and the amount of fat to be eliminated must be carefully evaluated.
As some surgeons recommend liposuction after 5 months of delivery, others recommend the procedure at least after 2 years. The intermediate period is aimed at facilitating proper healing of the body, especially after IVF treatment to prevent any possible complications.
Also, undergoing liposuction after IVF treatment earlier may impose psychological and physical issues, based on the trauma a patient may have experienced during the ART procedure.
