Liposuction or lipoplasty is a procedure meant for slimming and reshaping specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self-image.

During this procedure fat is removed from the body using fine canulas or tubes. The procedure can be done under local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia. Fat can be removed from any part of the body where the fat is excess.

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.

Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the following body parts:

Rhinoplasty can change:

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Knee region
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, chin and neck
  • Legs

In some cases, liposuction is performed alone, in other cases it is used along with other plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast reduction or a tummy tuck.

Following surgery you will be expected to wear a pressure garment to get optimal results. It may take several months for the swelling to fully dissipate. The fulfillment you feel from the initial results of liposuction should continue as long as you control your weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Following liposuction, your slimmer and better-proportioned body should more accurately reflect the healthy and active life you lead.
