Liposuction

Remove unwanted areas of fatty tissue and re-shape the body into a smoother more proportional silhouette

Some women are predisposed to store fat in certain areas of their body, such as hips, thighs, buttocks and the abdominal area and while this can sometimes be solved through a dedicated diet and exercise routine, for many there is just no way to shed the stubborn fatty deposits, no matter how hard they try. Liposuction is, at the most fundamental level, the removal of excess and unwanted fat through tiny access sites by means of suction techniques. Liposuction works well in smoothing, contouring and shaping the body to achieve noticeable effects, and nowadays there are many new modern techniques to achieve dramatic transformations. Also known as lipoplasty and body sculpting, liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for men and women alike. Liposuction should not be viewed as a quick fix for individuals who are significantly overweight. The procedure works best for those who have already lost some weight themselves and are close to their ideal weight, but need help tackling stubborn areas of fat in problem areas.

I received a very pleasant welcome. The staff are extremely friendly and put my nerves very much at ease. The procedure that I consulted about was explained to me in very great detail. This was not a sales pitch and I was never put under any pressure to sign up to anything straight away. I was told to go home and think about everything that had been explained so that I could be definite that this is what I wanted.

What would I expect from my consultation?

All consultations are private one-on-one sessions with Dr. Salman that normally last 30-40 minutes. During that time a full medical history is taken to confirm suitability for surgery. Dr. Salman will discuss with you your goals and desires, and will examine and evaluate your physical requirements. He will then thoroughly inform you about the best liposuction techniques, or alternative treatments, that will suit you most ideally.

During the consultation, the patient is in driving seat and any questions and concerns can be addressed to ensure the patient can be confident in making an informed choice.

What is involved with liposuction surgery

Liposuction greatly varies for the length of time undergoing the procedure, depending on whether the procedure will be done as a targeted performance or an overall body-sculpting experience. It may be performed either under local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the patient and procedure.

What is the recovery after liposuction surgery

After getting liposuction, the problem areas will feel lightweight, smoother and look shapelier after the healing process. Usually people can recover from liposuction as a standalone procedure fairly quickly, but when combined with other procedures it can vary depending on how many incisions are made and how extensive the surgery.

Patients are encouraged to keep mobile and walk around, even if you feel sore. Mobility prevents blood clots and aids in the recovery. After 48 hours most patients will be able to leave the house and possibly return to work.

What are the risks of complication?

All surgery, including cosmetic surgery, carries risks. Any potential complications will be discussed during consultation and you will be given a copy in writing.
