For some men and women, an ideal body cannot always be achieved through diet and exercise alone. Liposuction, otherwise known as lipoplasty, is a surgical solution for those that wish to remove stubborn pockets of excess fat. Those seeking to further refine specific body regions may also consider liposculpture, a more precise method of liposuction designed to sharpen and accentuate the body´s silhouette.
Liposuction involves making small incisions near the desired treatment area into which a cannula (a small tube) is inserted under the skin. Using gentle back and forth motions, the surgeon breaks up and suctions out excess fat through a vacuum attached to the cannula. Liposculpture follows a very similar technique to this, although the focus is less on removing a particular volume of fat and is more specified to contouring sections of the body to the underlying muscles.
Ideal candidates for liposuction and liposculpture are those at a healthy body weight or close to it. Patients must note that this is not a weight loss treatment nor a skin tightening treatment, but is designed solely to remove specific fatty areas.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click on the questions to reveal the answers.
How does liposuction and liposculpture work?
A local or general anaesthesia will be administered prior to your procedure. Small incisions will then be made near the treatment area(s). After each incision, your surgeon will insert a cannula (a small tube) under the skin through the incision. Using gentle back and forth motions, your surgeon will break up and suction out excess fat through a vacuum attached to the cannula. A saline solution may be introduced to each treatment area prior to liposuction to reduce bleeding and trauma to the surrounding tissues.
Which areas can benefit from liposuction?
Almost any area of the body that can benefit from fat loss may be targeted with liposuction. The most common treatment areas include the abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms and neck.
Will I need to take time off work?
Recovery times vary by individual and will depend on the extent of your fat removal. In general, most patients require 7-14 days to recuperate before resuming work and other daily routines. More strenuous physical activities may be restricted for several weeks.
How will I feel after surgery?
Immediately following surgery you may experience some soreness, tenderness and discomfort. Prescription or over-the-counter pain medications may be recommended to alleviate pain. Swelling, bruising and redness in the treatment area may persist for several weeks. You may need to wear an elastic compression garment to minimize these temporary side-effects.
Are there any side effects?
All surgical procedures, including liposuction and liposculpture, carry some degree of risk and uncertainty. These risks will be discussed in depth during the consultation process. Some risks may include infection, adverse reaction to anaesthesia, blood clots, swelling, bruising, friction burns, fluid accumulation (seroma) or nerve damage.
How long does the procedure take?
The length of surgery will greatly depend on the extent of your procedure and the area(s) being treated. In general, liposuction will take between 1-4 hours to complete.
