Liposuction of legs is a cosmetic procedure that involves sucking out fat that is hard to lose through exercise and a diet. It's performed on body areas where deposits of fat tend to collect, such as the hips, buttocks and thighs.
The procedure involves:
This procedure is either done under general anaesthetic, or local anaesthetic when performed on the lower body parts.
It might take around 6 weeks for recovery from liposuction. You will be advised to wear a special type of post-operative compression garment covering the areas that were treated. To encourage your skin to heal properly close the dead space and reduce any swelling and thus minimising the potential risks. Your surgeon might recommend you wear compression garments for at least 3 months after the procedure.
