Will i attain better results from liposuction surgery if it is performed while i'm standing up or while I am laying down? Summer is approaching and i'm currently considering a liposuction procedure. I've always thought liposuction to be a procedure that i

You : You are certainly correct that body contouring results depend on how we interact with gravity in the standing position. Since we are human, however, it would be technically rather difficult to perform liposuction on someone who is standing up. For this reason, the markings for liposuction are done at 360 degrees in the standing position. The patient is then placed recumbent for the surgery, either face down, back down or both. It is dependent on the surgeon's talent and skill to translate the markings made upright into the appropriate fat removal and scuplting. While early taping and dressings are applied with the patient lying down, later garments and taping are perfromed while standing to help mold the body into its new shape as swelling subsides and the skin resettles. ...Read more
