  by Linda Briggs

What is Liposuction, Lipoplasty, Liposculpture or lipoectomy?
It's a surgical technique which targets specific areas of fat under the skin and removes them.  A small incision is made and a cannula is connected to a suction unit and the fat is sucked out.  
Read the history of liposuction from the inventor Dr Pierre Fourier

What areas can be treated with Liposuction, Lipoplasty, Liposculpture or lipoectomy?
Most areas of the body can be treated particularly arms, tummy, hips & thighs, but under the chin is also very popular.  Bear in mind it will make the skin loose for a while and if your skin has lost its elasticity due to age or other factors, it may be necessary to have some skin lifted with surgery after a period of time.

This might apply to bingo wings, but sometimes you will get a better result than expected from lipo rather than having an arm lift which leaves long scars.

Who can have Liposuction, Lipoplasty, Liposculpture or lipoectomy?
A surgeon can assess your suitability by asking about your general health and wellbeing.  If you are overweight it is common for a surgeon to ask you to diet to your ideal weight and then go back to see them again.

What is recovery like?
After the initial feeling of maybe you were in a rugby scrum and didn't remember, you will be tender to the touch for some time. The bruising can be extensive, which should be expected as the body has been traumatised and needs to heal.

It is necessary to rest and recover from the surgery, but its necessary to continue to wear a medical support garment for up to 6 weeks.  This keeps the skin held in the position it needs to heal and it also helps the skin to heal evenly.

It's not possible to see the final results until the swelling has gone and the healing process is completely finished, so don't expect to have lipo one day and buy a dress 2 sizes smaller the next day.  Plan ahead for a big event and allow 3 months to heal.
