Back Liposuction

Dr. Faisal will assess the volume of fat and also the amount of excess skin. If there is a lot of excess skin then removing the fat will only increase the laxity and make the deformity appear worse

If there is a large excess of skin then excision is more appropriate

Dr. Faisal uses many different types of liposuction technology. He has VASER®️, Microaire®️ and laser technology available. These are designed to improve the efficiency of the procedure and also expedite the recovery The decision to use what technology is done on a case by case basis

If there is mild skin excess, Dr. Faisal can use the J-Plasma system to tighten the skin.

What is the Recovery Following Back Liposuction

You will awaken with a compression vest garment 

A few hours after the completion of the procedure you will be discharged with antibiotics and painkillers

There will be moderate amounts of pain for 4-5 days. This is well controlled with the pain killers

It is normal to have swelling after the operation. This will decrease over the first 6 weeks, and it is typical to have some residual swelling for 6 months.

You may also notice straw-coloured fluid coming out of the incision sites. This is normal. It typically stops after 48-72 hours. This fluid can sometimes collect under the skin and may need a painless aspiration in clinic

Dr. Faisal will review you at 1 week

You will be advised to start the manual lymphatic massage at this point. This improves the swelling quicker and optimizes the smoothness of the result 

You can start driving after 5-7 days and most people are back to work at 5-7 days

Dr. Faisal will review you again at 2 weeks and 6 weeks

You can resume gym activities at 2-3 weeks

How Can I Prepare for Liposuction

The best results are achieved for patients with a BMI<28. The closer you are to your final result, the better and more predictable your outcome will be.

Dr. Faisal recommends taking arnica tablets 1 week leading up to the operation. This will help to greatly reduce bruising

Stop smoking 3 weeks before the operation. Smoking has a harmful effect on recovery following surgery

Stop taking blood-thinning tablets such as aspirin, warfarin, and Plavix 1 week before the operation
