Liposuction can be an ideal solution for people who have reached or are very close to reaching their ideal weight, yet still have areas of fat which don’t respond to diet and exercise, says our plastic surgeon.
Liposuction can help remove excess fat from the abdomen, arms, thighs and face using various liposuction techniques. The amount of fat removed depends on which technique you select for liposuction.

No matter their best efforts to exercise and lose weight, some men and women still struggle with loose skin and excess fat in the midsection, which can be frustrating to deal with after pregnancy or significant weight loss. This problem often becomes evident after childbirth or significant weight loss and it can be frustratingly intractable.
However, there is one surgical solution which may provide relief: abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” along with stomach liposuction. A tummy tuck is an effective way to tighten abdominal muscles while also eliminating excess skin.
Surgery to address belly button prolapse typically involves general anaesthesia, ensuring you remain unconscious during the procedure. Your surgeon will make an incision along your belly button and place small tubes to drain fluid or blood from the area.
Dependent upon the extent of work performed, you will be prescribed painkillers and provided instructions on how to care for your incisions. Expect temporary bruising and swelling post-tummy tuck – complete recovery takes between six weeks to six months at least.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to eliminate fat from various parts of the body, such as the belly, arms, chin, back and buttocks. Liposuction can also improve the appearance of breast fatty tumours by eliminating excess fatty tissue that forms under their surface.
As part of a liposuction procedure, your surgeon will inject a sterile solution made up of salt water and an aesthetic for reduced pain. The fluid will swell the area it was applied, before being suctioned away to extract fat cells that have accumulated beneath.
After surgery, you may require a cannula inserted under your skin to continue sucking away excess fluids and fat deposits. While not required in every instance, your physician may advise it for optimal results and faster healing time.
Within three days after surgery, most individuals can return to work or other daily activities; however, heavy physical activity and demanding tasks should be avoided for one month postoperatively.
Abdominal Muscle Repair
Liposuction in Mumbai can help sculpt the abdomen by eliminating fat cells and tightening up abdominal walls while simultaneously eliminating excess skin. Unfortunately, however, this treatment won’t fix separated muscles or remove any sagging skin like a tummy tuck would.
If you have a bulging stomach and are trying to lose weight, diastasis recti could be to blame. While pregnancy or heavy weight gain often trigger this condition, diastasis recti can affect anyone at any age.
Diastasis Recti occurs when your “six-pack” muscles (rectus abdominis) become separated in the middle, creating an overhanging belly that does not respond well to diet or exercise.
Surgery to address diastasis recti can permanently close any gap in between two sides of your rectus abdominis muscle, tightening them together more closely than ever. While often performed alongside tummy tuck surgery, diastasis recti repair can also be done separately for improved appearance of your belly.
Skin on your belly or other areas may become loose after significant weight loss, making it both irritating and embarrassing to move or exercise normally. This condition is both frustrating and disconcerting, making bending your limbs or exercising effectively more challenging than before.
Stressful situations may also result in numerous medical concerns, including painful rashes or yeast infections. They may limit clothing options and affect confidence, comfort and self-esteem levels.
Excess skin can be managed via plastic surgery. If you have lost significant weight but still have excess skin dangling from your abdomen, breasts, arms or buttocks, liposuction may be an ideal way to remove fat deposits and make you eligible for liposuction surgery to address fat removal, says our plastic surgeon.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical process in which fat cells are extracted through use of a cannula tube to the surface of your body using either local or general anaesthesia and is generally painless. Although suited for multiple areas simultaneously, liposuction works best on smaller deposits of stubborn fat.
