Portrait of attractive woman.Looking and feeling great on your wedding day means you are radiant with love, relaxed and ready to share your life with your special someone. Some brides and grooms elect to enhance their natural beauty with liposuction, a type of procedure that removes stubborn body fat. Considered one of the more common cosmetic surgery procedures, liposuction seeks to esthetically augment the contours of the body. Read on to learn more about liposuction before your wedding.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction seeks to reduce the amount of fat deposits in a small specific area beneath the skin by surgical methods by a doctor. The most common areas targeted for liposuction include abdomen, back, buttocks, chest, hips, love handles, knees, thighs, upper arms and neck. The first documentation of liposuction dates back to the early 1920s, the surgery was referred to a fat removal procedure.

Types of Liposuction

There are many liposuction techniques to remove unwanted body fat; your doctor will educate and assist you when choosing the best method. These techniques may include tumescent liposuction, laser assisted-lipolysis, power-assisted liposuction, dry liposuction, wet liposuction and super-wet liposuction.

Know Before Liposuction

When consulting with your physician, make sure you understand the risks and procedure limitations associated with liposuction. Inquire about the costs and make sure the expense is worth the effort. Take the time to research your physician’s background and confirm they are in good standing with your state’s medical board.

Have a thorough medical examination before undergoing a liposuction procedure. Be sure to communicate any medical conditions or medications you are taking to your physician.

Things to Expect

Liposuction usually takes place in a hospital or surgical facility. On the day of your surgery, a pen will be used to mark the places where the fat will be removed. You will be given an anesthesia which is used to prevent pain. Depending on the type of procedure the anesthesia may be local, tumescent or general. The length of time for liposuction surgery varies with each individual and may take from 3 to 7 hours.

After Liposuction

After your liposuction, inquire with your doctor how long before you can return to your regular routine and wedding planning activities. You will be fitted with special bandages or elastic support to help you in the healing process. Painkillers and antibiotics are often prescribed to assist with healing. There will be a certain amount of uncomfortableness and the length of time for recovery varies according to each patient. Results may not be visible for 4 – 10 weeks. Keep this in mind when scheduling liposuction before your wedding day to allow enough time for recovery.
