Enhance body shape and restore self-confidence with Liposuction Surgery

For many individuals, fat tends to accumulate in specific problem areas of the body, such as the waist, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, cheeks, and chin. Even with regular exercise and a healthy diet, these stubborn fat deposits cannot be easily eliminated. In such cases, liposuction offers a solution to enhance body shape and restore self-confidence. One unique aspect of liposuction is that fat cells do not regenerate in the treated areas. If the patient gains weight in the future, the new fat will be distributed evenly throughout the body.

Who is eligible for liposuction?

Liposuction can be performed to address various concerns, including body asymmetry and excess fat in the abdomen, buttocks, chest, chin, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and knees. While liposuction was once popular primarily among women, it is now increasingly sought after by men as well, particularly for the treatment of gynecomastia, which involves the excessive growth of fatty tissue in the chest area.

Suitable BMI

To ensure the safety and effectiveness of the procedure, liposuction is typically recommended for individuals with a BMI below 27. When the BMI exceeds this threshold, even removing the maximum amount of fat (4-5 litres) will not achieve the desired outcome. Moreover, surgical risks increase when larger quantities of fat are suctioned. It is important to understand that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure but rather a means to enhance body contours.

What to expect during the surgery?

  • Incisions are strategically made in discreet areas of the body, such as within skin folds or areas covered by undergarments.
  • In cases of extensive fat deposits, liposuction may be performed in multiple stages and combined with other plastic surgeries, such as a tummy tuck or fat transplantation.

What to expect after Surgery?

After undergoing liposuction surgery, it’s essential to understand what to expect during the recovery process.

  • Discomfort and pain: It’s normal to experience some level of discomfort, pain, or soreness in the treated areas after liposuction. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medications to help manage any discomfort. Follow their instructions on how and when to take the medications.
  • Drainage tubes and dressings: In certain cases, drainage tubes may be placed in the incision sites to remove excess fluid. Your surgeon will provide specific instructions on caring for the drainage tubes and changing dressings, if necessary.
  • Activity and rest: Adequate rest is crucial during the initial recovery phase to allow your body to heal properly. Your surgeon will provide guidelines on when you can gradually resume normal activities and exercise. Start with light activities and gradually increase intensity based on their recommendations.
  • Scarring: Liposuction incisions are typically small and strategically placed in inconspicuous areas. While some scarring may occur, it tends to fade over time and become less noticeable. Follow your surgeon’s instructions on how to care for the incisions to promote optimal healing and minimise the appearance of scars.

A guide for smooth recovery

  • It is advisable to avoid intense physical activity, sports, and lifting heavy objects (over 5 kg) for a minimum of 2 weeks following the surgery. Additionally, quitting bad habits is encouraged during the recovery period.
  • For minimum 8 weeks after the surgery, or as recommended based on the treated area, wearing a special compression garment is essential to prevent fluid build-up and promote faster skin contraction.
  • Swelling and bruising: Swelling and bruising are common side effects of liposuction and can last for several weeks. To minimise swelling, your surgeon may recommend wearing compression garments as instructed.

To achieve the best possible outcomes, it is advisable to undergo a series of personalised lymph drainage massages following your surgery. Amber Surgery clinic in Dublin provides post-operation clients with lymphatic massages at discounts of up to 50% (bookings available from 23rd of June)
