What happens in liposuction surgery in India?

Liposuction surgery in India is a multi-step procedure and is done under local or general anaesthesia.  During the liposuction procedure, the cosmetic surgeon will make some small cuts or incisions in the treatment area and insert a thin cannula tube. The fat is sucked out of the tube by creating a vacuum. Once the plastic surgeon is satisfied with the suction, he will close the incision.  The incisions will be covered with dressing and sometimes a drain might be placed under the skin to remove the excess fluids. Once the incisions are healed, you will be able to see the new contours.

Liposuction surgery in India is often combined with other body contouring procedures such as arm lift, thighplasty, facelift, breast reduction, and abdominoplasty to remove the excess skin.  The results of liposuction surgery are often long lasting if you are able to keep your weight stable. 

Liposuction surgery is not a treatment for obesity or cannot be used as an alternative to healthy diet and regular exercise every day.  Liposuction treatment does not treat cellulite that appears on thighs, hips, and buttocks.

Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. Top plastic surgeons in India may combine the different liposuction surgery techniques to yield the best results. The common liposuction surgery techniques used in India include:

Suction assisted liposuction (SAL) surgery in India:

This is the oldest form of liposuction surgery. Small incisions are made over the treatment area, a cannula is inserted in the incision, and the fat is sucked out by creating a vacuum with the help of a pump. This type of liposuction is suitable for small areas of body such as neck and chin but it can be used on the buttocks, thighs, legs, abdomen, back, and arms.  This is also called the traditional liposuction and the results of this liposuction surgery take about six months to appear fully.


  • Less pricy liposuction surgery in India.
  • Can be used to harvest fat for other procedures such as fat grafting


  • This type of liposuction causes bleeding and bruising.
  • It is hard to control fat removal with this method and therefore more chances of dimpling.
  • Needs several sittings to get the desired results.

Tumescent liposuctions surgery in India:

Tumescent liposuction also known as the awake liposuction surgery in India is the same as the SAL liposuction but with one more step added before suction. A mix of lidocaine (which acts as a local anaesthetic) and epinephrine (which is a vessel constrictor) and saline is injected under the skin. This makes the fat cells under the skin tumescent (swollen) and makes it easier for the surgeon to remove the fat precisely using small suction tubes.


  • Reduced bleeding
  • Can be used on all body parts
  • Does not cause much bruising
  • Surgeon can access large areas
  • The patient can move around during the surgery


  • Takes a long time to happen
  • Needs multiple sessions

Ultrasound assisted Liposuction surgery in India:

Also known as the ultrasonic liposuction (UAL) this method of liposuction treatment uses high frequency sound waves to melt away the fat. The energy is focused on the tissues and the vibrations it creates burst the walls of the fat cells. The liquefied fat is easier to suction out. UAL i.e. ultrasonic liposuction is used on areas with are fibrous i.e. have tougher fat such as male chest, back and saddlebags. It is also effects in areas where liposuction is done before and traditional liposuction is difficult.


  • It is a quick method to remove stubborn fat.
  • Safer to remove large volume of fat.
  • Less likelihood of bleeding or infection.


  • Can cause blisters and burns.
  • Side effects include numbness and development of blood clots.

Power assisted Liposuction (PAS) treatment in India:

This type of liposuction treatment is also known as powered liposuction.  Best cosmetic surgeons use a specialized cannula, which is rapidly moved back and forth in the treated area. The mechanized system also makes the cannula rotate and move sideways.


  • Fat pulls out more easily
  • Faster method of liposuction


  • More chances of injury and damage.
  • Not effective in precise treatments

Laser Assisted Liposuction surgery in India:

This is a non-invasive liposuction surgery and is quite similar to UAL but works on the principle of lasers.  In laser assisted liposuction (LAL) a small tube is inserted in a small incision and the laser energy’s heat emulsifies or liquefies the fat under the skin. The liquid oil is removed through a cannula.


  • Laser enhances skin tightening on the inner thighs and arms area.
  • Recovery time of about one month.
  • Small incisions that heal without scar.
  • Precise liposuction.
  • Can be used anywhere on the body.


  • The final shape might take six week or more to appear
  • Small risk of burns because of lasers

Body jet or water assisted liposuction (WAL) surgery in India:

This type of liposuction is a minor enhancement over the traditional liposuction in which a local anaesthetic fluid is injected at the time of liposuction. A low-pressure washer is attached to the cannula that pulses the fluid. This helps in dislodging and easy removal of fat.

This type of liposuction treatment in Mumbai is suitable for areas, which have large volume of fat such as the breast area.
