Liposuction

Not feeling happy about your look because of large amounts of fat in the buttocks or abdomen which does not want to go away? Liposuction is the plastic surgery procedure you are looking for! Liposuction is known to increase self-esteem in two ways: it helps getting rid of fat in places where we don’t want it, but it also can be a part of fat transfer cosmetic surgery, in which unwanted fat is used in breast augmentation or buttocks augmentation.

With liposuction, you have a greater control of where the fat is accumulating and, by reshaping your body, you can boost your self-confidence. Cool sculpting is a newer procedure in which small areas of fat are frozen and disappear. Under the jawline is an example of a place where this procedure can be very effective.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Vaser Liposuctions?
Vaser Liposuction is a less invasive method than traditional liposuction because it uses ultrasound to break down the fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue, before removing it from the body with suction.
What are the risks?

Complications are unlikely. That said, as with all surgery, some complications are possible, our doctors will discuss each of these risks comprehensively at your consultation.

Can a tummy tuck and liposuction be performed simultaneously?
Yes. For the right patient and with the correct planning, a tummy tuck and liposuction can be carried out simultaneously.
What is BodyTite Liposuction?

It is even less invasive than Vaser and can be performed in a couple of hours. It is also performed under local anaesthetic, so there’s less recovery time needed.

  • Arm Liposuction

How long is liposuction recovery?
Liposuction recovery is relatively swift due to the relatively straightforward nature of the surgery.

We recommend taking a week of work to allow for slight bruising and swelling to subside. Pain should be fairly minimal and you can usually resume normal daily activities and exercise within a few weeks. Strenuous activities are discouraged during this period. Light walking before your procedure prevents blood clotting and minimizes swelling.

Liposuction recovery is finally complete fromm around 6 weeks when results should start to be visible. Full results will take between 6 – 12 months.
