Other names used to refer to this surgery include:

  • Lipoplasty
  • Liposculpture
  • “Lipo” (by patients)


The main goal of this procedure is to reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving the body contour.

The areas that can be treated with liposuction include the abdomen, waist, chest, armpit, upper arms, back, hips and buttocks, thighs, inner knee, and neck (below the chin).

The fat is suctioned out of the body using thin cannulas through small incisions measuring 3-4 millimeters.
The removed fat can be injected into the areas desired for permanent augmentation (For example: buttocks, hips, face).

Liposuction candidates:

Women who are in good medical health, at their ideal body weight or slightly above.
Women who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone.
Women who have realistic expectations.


No candidates for liposuction:

Women who have loose skin after pregnancies or weight loss.
Women who smoke and who are not able to stop smoking for 3 months (six weeks before surgery and six weeks after surgery). Chemicals from smoking may cause healing complications.


Recovery time

It is necessary to have about 2 weeks of relative rest. This means that bed rest is not necessary. But it is recommended to stay at home and avoid strenuous activities.
Having a supportive friend or relative is needed for care at home the first week after surgery.
The results of liposuction will be long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and general fitness.
Your improved body contour will be apparent when the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subsides.
