What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a fine surgical technique that removes fat deposits from your body. A small incision is made on your skin to break apart the fat tissues, which then are removed by suction technique via a small tube.
Our centre provides ultrasound assisted liposuction, a specific liposuction technique which involves the use of ultrasound energy that works only on the fat tissue. Fat deposits under the skin can be quickly reduced and removed compared to the traditional method, where the larger blood vessels and fibrous tissues are left intact for a rapid post-operative recovery.
2-3 hours for each body part
Types of anesthesia
It is not uncommon to find stubborn packets of fat on your tummy, around your arms and thighs, even if you follow a healthy diet and a regular exercise programme. Liposuction is a one-off, minimally invasive method to precisely target and solve the problem. The fat retrieved can be used to enhance the contour of other body parts such as face and breasts.
Is liposuction suitable for me?
We first need to understand your health conditions and expectations in the private consultation session to give precise advices. Liposuction guarantees a noticeable result but it may not be the perfect treatment for everyone. Patients will also be counselled on the result expectations during the recovery process.
Which body areas can be treated with liposuction?
We can treat your abdomen, sides, breasts, hips, thighs, arms and buttocks.
Can the fat cells extracted be injected to other body parts?
It depends on the amount of fat tissue extracted. In suitable cases, fat deposits retrieved can be used for breast augmentation and facial feature enhancement.
