There are several different types of liposuction techniques your cosmetic surgeon could perform, depending on your case.
Liposuction can target fat deposits in the following areas:

Types of LiposuctionIn most cases, fat will be removed using a hollow tube called a cannula and a suction device called an aspirator. Techniques are categorized by the amount of fluid injection and by the mechanism through which the cannula works. These are a few types of liposuction:
RecoveryDepending on the extent of the surgery, patients usually return to work between two days and two weeks. You may be required to wear a compression garment, which will assist in healing. Your doctor may prescribe pain medication, but other patients rely on over-the-counter medication for as long as two weeks. Bruising will fade after a few days or a couple weeks, and swelling will subside anywhere from two weeks to two months.
Remember, liposuction is not a permanent weight loss solution. While the fat cells are permanently gone, if you don’t eat well and exercise often, the remaining fat cells could become larger and replace the old cells.
