Searching for a liposuction clinic? Looking for a safe tummy tuck procedure? Even if on a strict diet or participating in regular exercise it can sometimes still not be enough to get rid of excess fat from the body in particular the stomach. Liposuction might be the answer and indeed the solution for those stubborn areas of fat. It might be that you need excess fat removed after neglect or as a result of heavy dieting which is why various types of anaesthesia are used during liposuction. If it is only small areas of fat that need to be removed, you may only need to have a local anaesthetic.  If it is the case where more extensive surgery is required a general anaesthetic might be the answer. Some of our clinics even have the very latest laser liposuction procedures available. Liposuction procedures have different time-scales depending on a few things like the amount of fat being removed; you will have full knowledge of all of this prior to any surgical procedure taking place.

Never thought I could afford this type of procedure. The surgery and aftercare have been excellent. Thanks to all the staff, I am so glad I took that initial first step by booking a consultation.

Liposuction – what happens?

Contrary to what is believed, liposuction is commonly used to treat patients who are near normal weight and have firm elastic skin. It is not a substitution for weight loss. Areas that are more commonly treated are the thighs, hips and buttocks, stomach, neck and upper arms, liposuction will also be used during a buttock lift surgery. Male breasts are also a common treatment area. Any of the procedures can only begin after you have seen one of our consultants. They will assess lots of things such as your skin quality, your overall health and the amount of fat to be removed. Once we are all in agreement and you are absolutely happy with our recommendations, the liposuction surgery will take place.

Our experienced plastic surgeons have carried out thousands of these procedures which involve them making a small or several small incisions into the skin depending on the area being treated. Using a thin, hollow tube they will break up the fat cells beneath the skin surface and remove them with a special suction or vacuum. Any incisions will be stitched at the end of the procedure.

Liposuction – what’s involved and how do I book a consultation?

Like any plastic surgery, recovering from Liposuction will vary depending on the extent of your surgery; you may be able to have the procedure as a day patient. Our after-care team will make sure you have the correct pain relief medication once the anaesthesia wears off. Some patients may need to wear an elastic support garment for two to six weeks which we will supply. Everyone heals differently so results may vary but it is not unusual to have your stitches removed five to ten days following your plastic surgery. Rest in essential during the first few weeks and avoid any strenuous activity, so no gym and depending on what type of employment you are in you may need to take one to two weeks off work. Once the swelling has decreased you will notice a difference in your body contour, it is worth noting that it may take up to six months for the area to settle. The results of liposuction appear gradually; your body shape and contour will continue to improve over the next six months to a year, as long as your weight stays stable.
