Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific body areas, leaving a much more defined shape. The procedure is also known as liposculpture or suction-assisted lipectomy. It is frequently combines with an abdominoplasty procedure, or Tummy Tuck, which helps to remove the excess skin and tissue for a complete body sculpting procedure.
The treatment can be performed on any area of the body – buttocks, hips, thighs, abdomen, chin, upper arms, breasts or knees – provided that the candidate is suitable for treatment. Liposuction is not an alternative to dieting and exercise and may not be suitable for candidates wanting to lose excess weight.
The procedure can take between 1 and 3 hours, depending on the number of areas being treated. Some patients are day cases while others may be required to stay in hospital overnight for monitoring.
