Liposuction is a targeted procedure, meaning that only particular areas can be targeted thereby giving the body desired contours and proportions.
It is a procedure that can be done by men and women, including women who are yet to give birth as this procedure, when done properly doesn’t go deep enough to affect internal organs.
Does Liposuction Have Side Effects?
Every medical procedure comes with a possible risk of side effects. As with other surgical procedures, care and prevention are taken from consultation, preparation of the patient, intra-op to post-surgical care of the patient.
Some common side effects that may be experienced are; pain on treated areas, nausea and vomiting, temporarily bruising on treated areas, general discomfort from compression garments. There is no one size fits all, hence the need for a proper consultation before any surgical procedure.
What Is The Cost Of Liposuction In Nigeria?
Cost of liposuction in Nigeria varies in different centers depending on parts of the body being worked on. It can start as low as 250,000 naira per body part to as high as 1,500,000 naira and more per procedure.
For example, someone may want to do liposuction of thighs only while another may want to do liposuction of the abdomen and back (commonly called lipo 360), thighs and arms together which would cost more. Prices of medications, nursing care, hospital stays, etc make up the additional cost.
Does Liposuction Remove Fat permanently?
No, liposuction removes only the fat present at the time of the procedure. You will have to maintain results with lifestyle modification.
