What is Liposuction?

In its simplest form liposuction is the removal of fat from beneath the surface of the skin. You may be one of the thousands of people who are carrying extra ‘tummy fat’ that just refuses to go away regardless of how much you exercise and how carefully you watch your weight.  If so, liposuction may be the answer you’re looking for.

Am I a good candidate for Liposuction?

If you’re a normal healthy adult that is in relatively good health that simply needs to lose a couple of pounds, chances are that you might be a good candidate for liposuction.  Anyone who has suffered complications of any type of surgery, those suffering from bleeding disorders (including blood clots) or those with seizure disorders may not be good candidates for liposuction.

There are certain drugs that you might be taking that could determine if you’re a good candidate for liposuction – you should discuss all drugs both over the counter and prescription with the doctor performing your liposuction.

If you’re thinking that liposuction is a good method to lose weight permanently you should know that liposuction is not a surgery that will help you lose weight effectively nor is it a cure all or a treatment for general obesity. 

Finding the right doctor

When you are considering a surgeon to perform a liposuction on you there are certain responsibilities that you take onto yourself first and foremost to make sure that if you have any questions that they are answered.  Liposuction is a surgical procedure and as such, you have the right to have your questions and concerns addressed in a reasonable manner.

When considering liposuction you should carefully evaluate the background of the surgeon you have selected as well as their history of performing liposuction.  Finding and using surgeon who has received in depth training on performing liposuction will reduce the risks that are associated with the procedure.

Risks associated with Liposuction

Severe complications resulting from Liposuction are rare provided that you seek liposuction from a qualified surgeon who understands the limitations of the procedures.  If you’re severely obese, you do increase the risk of serious (but rare) major complications.  Other complications of liposuction include:

Blood clots: which are most common in any type of procedure that involves general anesthesia;
Infection: as with any type of surgical procedure the risk of infection may be caused by dirty instruments;

Internal Bleeding: liposuction is performed using a tube inserted into your body – if you’re having fat removed from your abdomen the risk of internal bleeding occurs if the surgeon punctures the intestine;

Nerve Damage:  nerve injury is a risk that is associated with all types of surgery and liposuction is no different;

Swelling: any time your body is invaded by any type of instrument the area around the site may become swollen – liposuction is an invasive procedure and swelling is usually temporary;

Allergic Reactions: rarely an anesthetic may cause death or other severe allergic reaction.  This can happen with liposuction as it could with any other surgical procedure

Death:  death as a result of liposuction is extremely rare, with no deaths reported in approximately 65,000 cases of tumescent liposuction (i.e. liposuction where the fat is anesthetized before removal).


Provided you are not excessively overweight and are just interested in losing small amounts of fat, liposuction may be the option you’ve been searching for.  Losing a few inches and pounds through liposuction is potentially the solution for thousands of us.
