Liposuction

  • Are you at your desired weight, but there is that one spot where you can’t budge that little fat deposit, despite how hard you work that area in the gym?

Liposuction is removal of fat deposits via a cannula.

It is most successful when the deposits are small, and in a particular spot eg inner thigh, outer thigh, inner knee. The surgery takes 1 to 2 hours, and is performed under a general anaesthetic as a day procedure.

A postoperative garment is put on in theatre, and you need to keep this on 23 hours a day.

You would need someone to take you home and stay the first night with you.  We would need to see you in the rooms at 7 days to check on your progress.

Bruising is common with this procedure. The scars are small, and not sutured.  They are barely noticeable after several weeks.
