Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or neck. Liposuction also shapes (contours) in these areas. Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring. Liposuction isn’t typically considered an overall weight-loss method or a weight-loss alternative. If you’re overweight, you’re likely to lose more weight through diet and exercise or through bariatric procedures — such as gastric bypass surgery — than you would with liposuction. You may be a candidate for liposuction if you have too much body fat in specific spots but otherwise have a stable body weight.

What is

Most people only need to do one liposuction procedure to see results. Surgery takes one to two hours, depending on the size of the treated area. It’s usually done as an outpatient procedure, meaning you should be able to go home the same day you have surgery. Recovery time is usually a few days. You should follow your recommendations for recovery, which may include wearing a special bandage or limiting activities. You may need to wait 2 to 4 weeks before you can safely resume strenuous activity. It may take several months for the full results to be seen as swelling goes down.
