Many men and women choose liposuction Leeds when they’re dissatisfied with their body’s shape. This treatment can target different areas like the neck, upper arms, breasts, stomach, hips, back, flanks, thighs, and buttocks.
Liposuction targets stubborn fat by using a cannula inserted under the skin. Through this tube, small amounts of subcutaneous fat are suctioned out until the desired reduction is achieved, typically reducing the treated area by 1-3 centimetres.
While it can complement other body contouring procedures, it’s not typically advised for extensive fat removal. Lasting results, creating a slimmer appearance, are possible when paired with a healthy, active lifestyle.
The procedure itself can span up to 3 hours. The duration of your specific surgery hinges on the size and quantity of areas being addressed, as well as the amount of fat removal needed. Sometimes, multiple sessions are required to achieve the desired outcome.
Type Of Anaesthesia
Sometimes, a compression garment is necessary, and your surgeon will advise on the duration of its use. You might experience some stiffness and tenderness post-liposuction, and taking pain relief medication can help alleviate this discomfort. It may take up to 6 weeks for complete results to show as bruising and swelling gradually diminish.
Back To Work (Recovery)
Even if you experience stiffness and tenderness, our surgeons will encourage regular movement following the procedure. Usually, patients can resume work after 1 or 2 weeks, keeping activity levels low. A complete recovery is anticipated within 2 to 4 weeks.
