Liposuction – This is designed to re-contour areas that may be resistant to weight loss through diet and exercise. It is a targeted procedure and not done as a weight loss measure.
Whilst often considered less “serious” than surgery it is important to realise that it is still a significant intervention with its own set of risks and adverse outcomes. A specialist anaesthetist is always present and it is performed only in accredited hospitals.

What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure which is designed to re-contour and enhance the appearance of areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is a targeted procedure, and is a body shaping method, rather than a weight loss technique. Liposuction involves the removal of excess fat from the body, and can be performed in a number of areas, including the hips, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
Who is best suited for liposuction?
Liposuction is generally a good option for individuals who would like to get rid of deposits of fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates should have fairly firm and elastic skin, and should be at a healthy body weight as the procedure is not a weight loss measure.
What does the liposuction procedure involve?
Liposuction is performed only in accredited hospitals, and a specialist anaesthetist will be present throughout the procedure. Before the procedure begins, the areas you would like treated will be marked, and you will be given a general anaesthetic. A very thin tube, known as a cannula, is connected to a vacuum and used to suction the fat deposits from your body.
