Liposuction is a surgical procedure used to remove excess fat from the body. This procedure can be performed in various areas, particularly to reduce fat accumulations in the abdomen, hips, thighs, back, and arms.

Liposuction is typically performed under general anesthesia, where the doctor uses a special cannula to suction out the fat cells. The cannula is inserted beneath the skin to facilitate the removal of fat cells. A small incision is made for liposuction, and the procedure is carried out by inserting the cannula through this incision.

The recovery process after liposuction may vary depending on the treated area and the individual's overall health condition. Generally, patients are advised to rest for a few days after the procedure. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort may be experienced in the treated area, which will subside within a few days. Patients should avoid excessive activities for a few weeks after the procedure. Wearing supportive garments may be necessary during the recommended period advised by the doctor.

Ideal candidates are individuals who maintain a healthy body weight and have localized fat accumulations that are difficult to reduce through exercise and diet. However, liposuction should only be used for fat removal and should not be considered as a weight-loss method for overweight or obese individuals.
