Liposuction – our results

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure in which localised areas of the body are sculpted by removing fat from them. It is an ideal solution for fat deposits which do not respond to diet or exercise.Reshaping these areas brings back definition to the body and creates a new and refined silhouette.

Liposuction is best suited to those who are within 15% of their ideal body weight (sometimes higher). Liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss but for body reshaping. Undesired fat can be removed from virtually any body area including:

  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Male chest
  • Female breast reduction
  • Abdomen
  • Waist and love handles
  • Back and shoulder blade area
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Thighs, knees, calves and ankles

About Pure Tumescent Liposuction

We offer pure tumescent liposuction in our fully accredited surgical suite. This is a walk in-walkout method of having liposuction. First, a solution of numbing fluid is used to firm up the area. The solution completely numbs the area and eliminates virtually all bleeding. This stage is almost painless and so effective that it eliminates the need for a general anaesthetic. Very fine microcannulas are used to loosen up the fat deposits and withdraw them. Enough fat is removed until the desired shape is obtained. The artistry and experience of a surgeon is critical in ensuring just enough, and not too much, fat is removed.

Is it painful?

Mild discomfort may be experienced while the numbing solution is applied. The procedure itself is not painful and so sedatives, strong pain killers and general anaesthesia are not required. There is likely to be some soreness for a few days after the procedure – much like overdoing it at the gym.

Is the procedure safe?

There is significant research showing that tumescent liposuction is safer than liposuction under general anaesthesia. Nonetheless, it is a surgical procedure and complications can occur. However, these are infrequent and minor.Our surgical facilities are fully accredited to the highest standards, so you can rest assured you are in safe hands.

How long does recover take?

Day to day activities can be resumed the following day. A light compression garment is worn for 48hours. Return to work is usually in 5 days. Full sporting activities such jogging, contact sports or swimming can be resumed after 3 weeks.
