Liposuction removes the stubborn fat deposits to help sculpt and reshape the body contour
Liposuction is a surgical procedure which addresses the stubborn fat pockets that usually accumulate on the hips, inner thigh and abdomen. Fat can also accumulate in other areas of the body, including the chin, neck, upper arms and buttocks. Exercise and diet are beneficial but can have a limited effect on resistant fat deposits.

Liposuction is not a procedure for weight loss but aims to sculpt and contour your body post diet and exercise by removal of stubborn fat deposits.
Different types of liposuction techniques are available. Your body’s requirements, the location of the fat and your expectations will dictate the most suitable technique. The liposuction is performed using different sized cannulas through very small incisions in the involved area.
Liposuction will normally be performed in an outpatient setting (depending on the amount of liposuction needed), under sedation or general anaesthesia.
Post-operative bruising and swelling are common. The bruising will usually disappear within 2-3 weeks while the swelling lasts longer, approximately 6-8 weeks.
Post-operative pressure garments are applied to reduce the swelling and achieve a better outcome.
