Although people may exercise on a regular basis, localized fat deposits may remain. This can be due to various reasons but in most cases, genetic inheritance is the main reason. The process of liposuction aims to remove excess fat in certain areas of the body, in order to improve the appearance of the body in terms of aesthetics and to reduce the waist circumference in addition to the surroundings of other areas in the body. It might be performed alone or in combination with other procedures such as facelifts or tummy tucks. In the surgical procedure, a special device is used, which sucks small portions of the accumulated excess fat tissue with a vacuum pump. It is not possible to perform this process in all areas of the body that contain excess fat. Usually, the operation is done to vacuum the excess fat in the abdomen, hips, loins, buttocks, arms, and areas under the chin. Liposuction is not recommended for people who suffer from restricted blood flow, diabetes, coronary artery disease or a weak immune system.
Preparing for liposuction includes conducting a prior consultative meeting, during which he/she examines whether the patient has other diseases that may not allow liposuction, and examines the reasons that make the patient inclined to this type of operation. The doctor informs the patient of areas it is recommended to have liposuction from. Before the operation, the patient needs to perform some tests - usually, there is no need to perform many tests except for complete blood count, blood chemistry and coagulation tests. If the patient is old, he is asked to do a chest X-ray and an electrocardiogram. The doctor should be consulted about the medications that the patient should stop taking before the operation. Patients should stop taking Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medicines at least 2 weeks before the surgery. Women should be asked to stop taking the contraceptive pills. Patients who suffer from anemia should be asked to take iron. You should not drink alcohol in the 48 hours before the operation and should fast for 8 hours before it. Patients should stop smoking a few weeks before and after the liposuction procedure.
