Planning your surgery
Full medical History, examination and your goals and requirements will be discussed thoroughly.
Your surgeon will determine if you are suitable for a non surgical soft treatments (e.g. Ultra shape, mesotherapy…..etc) or whether you require a surgical solution to solve the problem.
A soft treatment can be provided at the same consultation if found appropriate.
The Liposuction Procedure
The unwanted fat is first liquefied by injections of saline solution combined with local anaesthetic and a vasoconstrictor (a substance which restricts local blood flow).
The surgeon next makes a tiny incision and introduces a hollow, stainless steel tube named a cannula into the deep fat layer.
Working on this layer is safer than working on the superficial layer as there is less risk of injuring the skin.
The surgeon pushes and pulls the tube through the fat layer and, as the cannula moves, it breaks up the fat cells, which are sucked out with a vacuum pump or syringe.
The techniques and liposuction machines differ among surgeons.
Liposuction in takes between 30 minutes and 3 hours depending on the complexity of the case.
