Before the surgery, Dr Prince might suggest you undergo certain tests to ensure your body is fit for the procedure. Your doctor would review your past medical and medication history before the surgery. You may be asked to stop certain medications such as aspirin a week or two before the surgery.

You must avoid smoking and alcohol consumption as it may interfere with the process of healing after the surgery. Prior to the surgery, it is important that you clear all your doubts about the procedure and address any concerns that you may have.

There are different types of liposuction and Dr prince will suggest the one which is suitable for you considering the advantages and disadvantages of the procedure. The liposuction is performed under general anesthesia.

During the procedure, small incisions are made in the areas to be treated. Then, a thin, hollow tube is inserted through the incisions to loosen the fat deposits under the skin. Now, doctor  will use the suction mechanism to remove the dislodged fat from your body.

Post-surgery, the treated areas are covered using compression garments or elastic bandages to help reduce swelling. Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the care for surgical sites, medications to be used, and follow-up visits. It may take several days to weeks for complete recovery.

Most people return to normal activities immediately after the treatment. However, it is important to consider returning to work few days after the treatment so as to prevent the post-surgery complications.

Although the fat deposits are suctioned out permanently from your body, you must still follow a healthy diet and perform regular exercise to maintain the body contour.

AEROBIC EXERCISES – Light aerobic exercises and walking are recommended within two days of a liposuction procedure. You should return to exercise routines slowly and at a lower intensity level than one may have been used to before the surgery. Most surgeons recommend waiting three weeks after the procedure to return to higher impact activities such as running and aerobics.

RESISTANCE EXERCISES – Resistance exercises can be resumed two weeks after the surgery. As with aerobic exercises, resistance routines should be returned to slowly and should be increased depending on tolerance. Medical attention may be necessary if any discomfort, pain or drainage results from these resistance exercises.

The cost of liposuction varies from patient to patient. A full medical history of the patient is required before the surgery, as this will help the doctor recommend the best type of liposuction surgery suitable for you. Depending on the areas that are being treated, type of room chosen, the procedure recommended and insurance coverage, the cost will vary.
