Liposuction / VASER Liposelection

Liposuction is a procedure where subcutaneous fat (Fat under the skin) is removed by suctioning the fat out. This can be done through small (about 3-4mm) incisions hidden discretely in the skin crease. Usually about two incisions are needed per area treated. With the removal of the fat, area treated can be resculpted and re-contoured to achieve the desired effect.

Depending on your specific request, skin condition and the amount of fat needed to be removed the power assisted technique or ultrasonic assisted technique may be used. Liposuction may be used alone or as an adjunct to other procedures such as a tummy-tuck procedure.

Anaesthesia
The procedure can be done under General Anaesthesia or with intravenous sedation
The procedure may be done in the clinic in selected patients or as a day surgery procedure in the hospital

RECOVERY
You will be able to walk about the same day.
The stitches are taken out after a week.
During recovery, firm pressure garments fitted to you are worn to reshape and re-contour the treated areas. These need to be worn for up to 2 months for optimal results. For optimal results, the liposucked areas are also treated with a course of radiofrequency therapy. This facilitates healing, reduces bruising and swelling and promotes skin tightening. Radiofrequency will be performed by our nurse therapist in the early recovery period.

Deep massaging will also speed recovery and reduce swelling. We treat all areas of the body including:
