Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

Liposuction surgically removes fat that diet and exercise don’t. It eliminates unwanted fat from:

  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Face
  • Neck and chin (submental area)
  • Flanks 
  • Back 
  • Breasts and axilla 

Dr. Madni’s expertise in liposuction helps you feel more comfortable, wear the clothes you like, and feel more self-confident.

Is liposuction suitable for me?

Liposuction can help you lose a few excess pounds from specific areas to refine your figure, but it’s not an alternative to healthy weight loss.

To determine if liposuction is the best choice for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Madni. He discusses your aims and examines the problem areas to see if your goals are achievable.

It’s important that liposuction patients are close to their ideal weight, exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and are psychologically stable. That ensures satisfying and long-lasting results.

If Dr. Madni agrees that liposuction is a good choice for your needs and you’re happy to proceed, you can book your surgery. You get comprehensive pre- and postoperative instructions that optimize your results and reduce your risk of complications.

What happens when I undergo a liposuction procedure?

Dr. Madni may perform liposuction under a general or local anesthetic, depending on the patient and the extent of their surgery. Liposuction could last 1-3 hours, according to how much fat needs extracting.

Dr. Madni inserts a cannula (a tube that frees and removes the unwanted fat) through a small incision in your skin. He may use  power-assisted liposuction (PAL), an advanced form of fat removal that produces smooth results with less trauma. 

Dr. Madni also performs high-definition etching, a liposuction technique which can highlight the surrounding muscle.

After completing your liposuction, he applies padding and a compression bandage over the treatment area. You should rest for a few days and keep your bandages on.

You’ll initially have some bruising, discomfort, and tenderness, but don’t remove the compression bandages until Dr. Madni says you can.

How soon will I see results after liposuction?

You should notice an immediate difference after liposuction and further gradual improvements in your body’s shape as you heal. However, postoperative swelling and skin shrinkage can take up to six months following liposuction.
