Preparation for Liposuction Surgery in Iran
Before going through liposuction surgery, your doctor will instruct you about preoperative attempts and answer all your questions. You may need to do certain lab tests before the surgery. Before the procedure, your doctor will ask you to follow the tips below:
- Quit smoking before the surgery and after that because it can increase the speed of the healing process.
- Avoid taking aspirin and certain herbal and medical medications that cause increased bleeding.
- Hydration is very essential before and after the surgery for a safe recovery.

How is Liposuction done?
Before starting the liposuction surgery, the surgeon may mark areas of your body that need to be treated. For doing the procedure, your doctor decides whether you need to undergo local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia depending on the treated area and your health condition.
For starting the surgery, small incisions are made on the intended area of the body. Then a thin hollow tube or cannula is inserted into the body through the incisions. Cannula loosens the excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. After that, the liposuction cannula is inserted and suctions the extra fat out of the body using a syringe attached to the cannula.
After the surgery, you may be discharged on the same day or you may need to stay the night at the hospital. Either way, you may need a person to drive you home and take care of you on the first day of the procedure. You need to wear a compression garment or elastic bandages to cover the treatment area. Small drains may be inserted into the existing incisions beneath the skin to remove excess fluids and blood. Wearing a compression garment helps to control swelling and accumulation of fluids under the skin. In addition, it compresses the skin to your new body contours.

Physical Activity and Exercise after Liposuction
After liposuction, your body begins to produce fat again just like before. If you choose liposuction for losing weight, you need to do regular exercise after the surgery in order to prevent gaining weight again. Being overweight increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases; therefore, it is essential to have a plan for keeping your proper weight not only for aesthetic reasons but also for your health. The proper time for starting your regular exercise varies for different people. Your doctor will talk with you about starting your physical activities and routine exercise based on your health condition.
