Liposuction

If you have ever despaired about those areas of fat that never seem to respond to dieting or exercise, then liposuction surgery may be the solution.

Women tend to accumulate fat around the buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, ankles and lower abdomen. Men tend to store excess fat around the flanks, abdomen and the breasts. Liposuction can be used to target these difficult areas.

Liposuction surgery is currently the only medically approved procedure that allows the selective removal of localised fat cells.

Liposuction is usually carried out under general anaesthetic and 1 night in hospital is needed afterwards.

Smaller areas can be treated with liposuction using a local anaesthetic, on a day care basis. Individuals who are grossly overweight are poor candidates for liposuction, since it is not a treatment for obesity. It is recommended for those patients who wish to improve their body contour, by the removal of unsightly fat pads.

Recovery:

A pressure garment is worn around the treated area following the liposuction for about 21 days. Recovery time is approximately 2 weeks.
