Results of liposuction surgery are apparently permanent but there is possibility of weight gain in the treated areas if complete care regarding your eating habits are not being taken. This also depends on how well you maintain your post-lipo weight.

Tumescent liposuction is the most commonly used and the most effective method for liposuction. A heavy amount of medicated solution is injected in the areas before the fat is removed. The process is more safe, and less painful and has a quick recovery time. The procedure is outpatient and does not require the use of general anesthesia.

Liposuction can be both major or minor. There are rare chances of some serious complications related to abdominal perforations, fluid imbalance and blood loss, drug toxicity, reactions to anesthesia, and pulmonary embolism. The severity of liposuction surgery also depends on the amount of body fat to be removed.
