The cost of liposuction, alternatively known as lipoplasty, or for that matter any other cosmetic surgery in India is much less than the prices charged in the developed countries of the world.

Medical professionals and hospitals in India are known throughout the world for providing international standards of healthcare.

Liposuction – A Brief Overview

Liposuction, also referred to as lipo, is a common plastic surgery procedure that is performed to remove redundant deposits of fat in the arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and calves that are resistant to diet and exercise. The procedure involves suctioning out localized fat deposits via a hollow tube called the cannula. The cannula attached to a powerful suction device is inserted into the fatty areas through small incisions (cuts). The excess fat is then removed using a large syringe or a suction pump. The duration of the procedure depends on the technique used and amount of fat needed to be removed.

Different Liposuction Techniques

  • Vaser Liposuction: Also called ultrasound-assisted liposuction, a special cannula is used to transmit ultrasound vibrations for liquefying the fat cells.
  • Laser Liposuction: In this technique, laser energy is used to liquefy the fat deposits.

Tumescent Liposuction: A saline solution, including a painkiller and epinephrine (a drug that contracts blood vessels), is injected into the fatty areas, after which dissolved fat is suctioned out.
