Liposuction

Liposuction, a surgical procedure, effectively removes excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body while leaving minimal scarring.

While liposuction is not primarily a weight-loss tool, it serves as a valuable technique for body sculpting in individuals who have struggled to shed excess fat from certain areas despite exercise and dieting.

Common target areas for liposuction include the hips, flanks, arms, thighs, and abdomen. In some cases, it can also be utilized to reduce breast size.

Before the surgery, the targeted area is carefully marked. Liposuction is typically performed under general anesthesia. A diluted solution of local anesthetic is injected into the skin, and small incisions (typically 5 – 7mm in length) are strategically placed in inconspicuous locations around the treatment area. A specialized metal tube called a cannula is then inserted into the tissues, and excess fat is gently suctioned out using a powerful vacuum pump.

WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM LIPOSUCTION?

People who:

  • Have localized areas of fat despite dieting and exercise.
  • Would like to improve their body contour to look and feel younger.
