With abdominal liposuction, the doctor can give you your desired body shape. The doctor will use a microcannula to remove fat cells directly from the abdominal area. Your body will look more balanced, slimmer and better contoured. Your shirt size might also go down. Abdominal liposuction is especially effective for areas in your abdominal area where, even if you diet or exercise regularly, you cannot seem to lose fat.

Abdominal Liposuction checklist :

· Do you suffer from stubborn fat in your abdominal area that you cannot seem to be able to lose, even if you diet or exercise regularly?
· Do you have an uneven body shape around your stomach area? · Would you like to lose a lot of fat in a very short time? · Would you like liposuction on the abdominal area with minimal scarring?

Recovery Time

Week 1-2
You will experience bruising and swelling for the first couple of days. You might see a little bit of body fluid leaving the area for the first 1-3 days after your surgery. This is normal. The abdominal area will feel sore. You have to wear compression garments on the area you received surgery on for the first month. Your stitches will be removed after 5-7 days, but in some cases, they might be removed 2 weeks post surgery.

Week 3-4
Most bruising and swelling will have gone down quite a lot and you can start seeing the final result of your liposuction. Tenderness will disappear and most bruising and swelling will have disappeared. It is still recommended to wear your compression garment 24/7. After 1 month, you can slowly drink alcohol, visit a sauna/spa and do most activities without restriction.

Month 2-6
From the second month after your surgery, you can start wearing your compression garment at night only. After a couple of months, the final result of your surgery can be seen. Your body contours will look more defined, any fat or curves in the area will have decreased significantly and you will look overall slimmer and more healthy. Your abdominal area will look tighter and more defined.
