Liposuction comes in different categories tumescent, ultrasound, laser and suction-assisted. The tumescent solution reduces the extra bleeding.

Suction assisted, requires a vacuum to suck the fat and unwanted tissues from the body.

As your abdomen size decreases, the back pain also decreases. Strengthens the abdominal muscle. But the recovery period of this surgery is more (10-12 months)  so one should get prepared for that. Also, it may live permanent marks. Also, the cost will b out-of-the-pocket as insurance companies don’t help. Doctors mostly suggest to pair this up with liposuction, for astounding results.
