Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure also known by the names “lipo”, “lipectomy”, “lipoplasty”, or “liposculpture suction”. This surgery dissolves the fat cells and then pulls them up from the body. The procedure is carried out to suck fat from the thighs, neck, abdomen, chin, buttocks, calves, upper arms, and the back.

Usually, people with a stable weight but undesirable deposits of fat in specific body parts like to undergo the process of liposuction. Liposuction is not a treatment and overall method of weight loss for obese people because stretch marks, dimples, or cellulite cannot be removed with it. Liposuction aims to enhance the shape of the body and to give an aesthetic feel by changing body contours.

In liposuction, fats cells are permanently removed from the body changing body shape. However, if the lifestyle of the patient is not healthy, there are chances of growth of remaining fat cells after the operation. Only a limited amount of fat can be removed through liposuction.


Under general anesthesia, the procedure is conducted.The body area from where the fat is to be removed is marked. Medicine to reduce bruising, blood loss, and swelling and anesthesia is administered in this area. Fat cells are broken up using either a weak pulse of the laser, high-frequency vibrations, or a water jet having high pressure.

A small cut is made through which a suction tube is inserted. A hollow cannula is attached to the suction tube that creates a vacuum. Fat cells are loosened up by moving the suction tube and then these are sucked out. Extra blood and remaining fluid are sucked and the treated area is closed and bandaged. The whole procedure takes one to three hours and some people might need to stay overnight in the hospital.


Although liposuction is normally performed for cosmetic and aesthetic purposes, sometimes it can be used to treat some medical conditions. Liposuction is used to treat lymphedema in which excess fluid collects in tissues resulting in swelling. It is used for the treatment of gynecomastia in men, to remove fatty, benign tumors (Lipomas) and lipodystrophy syndrome in which fat deposits increase in a certain area while decreasing
