Liposuction

Liposuction

Enhance your appearance with a new sculptured look. If you  have tried every exercise program and diet to get rid of stubborn fat with no results, an alternative solution may be required. Liposuction can reduce unwanted fat deposits from abdomen and waist, thighs, calves, ankles as well as inner knees, flanks, upper arms and chin, among others.

In most cases, liposuction is combined with other procedures such as a facelift, breast augmentation or stomach tuck to create a more pleasing and harmonious result. Our team of surgeons help you look slimmer and give you the confidence you need to face the world.

How will surgery be performed?

Liposuction has evolved into a relatively safe and effective surgical procedure that helps to remove excess fat deposits from specific body areas and give you a trimmer, slimmer appearance.

Depending on the type of liposuction you want, the procedure is performed using a suction device attached to a small, stainless steel instrument called a cannula.

Through very small and inconspicuous incisions, the cannula is inserted into fatty areas between skin and muscle removing excess fat either using a suction pump or a large syringe. Sterile liquid solution is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma. Once completed, your body will have smoother and improved contours.

For a balanced overall appearance, many patients decide to schedule cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift, together with liposuction. FV Hospital can offer you a special multi-procedure package, saving time, convenience and money.

What kind of anaesthesia will be needed?

Local anaesthesia and complementary sedation or general anaesthesia will be administered during the procedure, depending on the extent of the procedure in consultation with the anaesthetist.

How long will surgery take?

Depending on the area being treated and/or the number of areas, the procedure will take between half an hour and three hours.

Will I feel pain afterwards?

Some patients will feel particular discomfort following surgery, but medication will be prescribed.

How long is recovery?

A compression garment or elastic bandages will cover the treatment areas. These control swelling and compress the skin into your new body contours.

One day up to two nights in hospital are usually required and an additional three to four days in your hotel depending on the type of liposuction. You may feel some numbness or loss of feeling around the area of the liposuction but this will be temporary.

For a few weeks following the procedure, a body contouring sleeve – a type of stocking that will help your body conform to its new shape – is required.

Do not become disheartened if you do not see immediate results. Swelling fully dissipates over several weeks or even months but then the overwhelmingly positive results will become apparent.

As liposuction results are permanent, the initial results should continue as long as you control your weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Will there be bruising and swelling?

Bruising and swelling around the incision, lasting for a few days, dissipating rapidly.

Will I have to remove the stitches?

A post-operative consultation will be arranged with your FVH surgeon five to seven days afterwards, during which the stitches will be removed.

Will there be scars?

Several tiny scars of no more than three mm (one tenth of an inch), fading over time.
