Cardi B's Liposuction Experience and the Lessons We Can Glean

lights and concert

Over the years, various celebrities have mentioned the complications they have had from cosmetic surgery to raise awareness among their audiences.

Cardi B, an American Rapper, had to postpone a high-grossing tour to recover from her plastic surgery procedure post-pregnancy. Much of the postponement, in fact, was attributed to Cardi B not resting sufficiently to recover fully from the operation. 

What Procedure Did Cardi B Get And What Went Wrong?

Cardi B received liposuction, a popular variant of plastic surgery that uses cannulas to dislodge and suck fat from a specific area of the body. Liposuction is usually done under general anesthesia, an aspect that is very taxing on the body and inductive of an extensive recovery.

It's routine to take off two weeks before returning to work, and about one or two months before resuming strenuous activities. Cardi B's lack of rest and taking on the challenge of something as energy-consuming as a music tour was, unfortunately, a recipe for disaster.

That's because lipoaspirate, the fluid removed, and fat suctioned by the cannula are not just fat. Instead, it's a combination of cellular components, including blood; therefore, removing five lipoaspirate liters can result in a considerable drop in hemoglobin levels.

Therefore, understand the liposuction is a dangerous procedure and recovery is essential. Here are some recommendations you should follow post-procedure:

  • Drink plenty of water before and after surgery. Hydration is key!
  • Get a caregiver to aid with assistance for the first 24-48 hours.
  • Regularly move around your home to help with circulation. Please don't overdo it!
  • Wear the appropriate compression garments to aid with swelling and to guarantee more precise results.
  • Get lymphatic massages by a licensed therapist.

Liposuction Is Becoming A Lot More Common

As you may know, this year has turned itself into the year of the body—much more than that. We could even consider it the decade of the body. 

Liposuction procedures such as tummy tucks and breast augmentation fat transfers are becoming ever more common. With celebrities such as Cardi B getting tummy tuck or liposuction, it serves as an incentive for many fans to do the same.

After all, we understand, you always want to feel comfortable with your body, so going to the surgeon's office should be a worthwhile effort!
