There is a growing desire among men and women to look sleek and stylish but this desire usually remains unfulfilled because of the lack of a good figure. This is more so in the case of obese people who can lose fat only to a certain extent with dieting and workout. A beautiful body not only attracts praise, but also raises the self-confidence of the individual and slimness is an essential part of it.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical process that removes deposited fat effectively. A 3-4 mm cut is made, clinically called keyhole incision, and liposuction cannula is passed through it. The fat is then sucked out with the help of a special vacuum device, called the liposuction machine.
There is a common belief that liposuction is a surgical tool to treat obesity. However, this is absolutely wrong as liposuction is not a weight-loss method and cannot help grossly overweight people.
It is perfect for those individuals who have fat depositions in certain parts of the body, also called ‘fat pockets’ or ‘localized fat deposits’. These fat pockets can be found in various parts of the body, such as the buttocks, flanks, abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, chin, etc.
How much weight can I lose with liposuction?
Liposuction surgery primarily aimed at reducing the volume and not weight. After a successful procedure patients can expect a reduction of dress size by at least one or two sizes.Weight loss is usually not more than 3kg and the final effect will be visible only after 3-4 months. Just after surgery the place bereft of fat is filled with fluid which is heavier than the deposited fat, making the patient weigh more than before. But, this is only temporary and the positive effects begin to show gradually as the body heals.

Best liposuction surgery in Delhi
We discuss with our patients in detail about their expectations from the surgery and the extent to which they can realize their cosmetic goals through liposuction. The surgeon may also recommend some alternative and additional treatments to help you get the best results.
After we decided you are the right candidate for liposuction, we will tell you about the procedure and any preparations you need to make before the surgery.
If the area to be treated is small such as the chin, knees or the flanks, the procedure can be done easily under local anesthesia. But, if the area is big such as the abdomen, outer thighs, etc then the surgery can be done only under general anesthesia. Cost of liposuction surgery in Delhi will differ from case to case basis and can be arrived only after thorough consultation with our experts.
Patients are discharged within 6-7 hours of surgery and rarely a patient has to stay overnight. They can also get back to work just after 2-7 days after the surgery, but they should not strain themselves too much for the first few days.
We recommend proper exercise and balanced diet for patients. This helps maintain body weight and people who have a tendency to put on weight easily can realize much better results. Studies have shown liposuction has worked as a catalyst in maintaining proper shape for a strict diet and workout regime.
There can be problems if you gain weight after surgery. The fat deposition will be in other parts of the body other than the treated one.
Exercise or sports activities should not be started before 3 weeks after the surgery.
