Liposuction

View the liposuciton procedure in 3D

Liposuction is the removal of fat by suction through small holes in the skin. The procedure works best on localised areas of fat and is not a way to lose weight. It is regarded as a body- contouring procedure for people of normal or near- normal weight who have a healthy diet and exercise. Although undertaken for cosmetic rather than medical reasons.

it is a significant surgical procedure that involves a potentially painful recovery and risks of rare but serious complications. Liposuction should therefore be considered very carefully. Liposuction is an option that can be used to remove fat when fat proves difficult to remove by exercise and sensible dieting.

Common areas targeted by liposuction include the thighs, hips and abdomen, as well as under the jaw to remove a double chin.

The Liposuction procedure takes place in the modern Spire Little Aston Hospital near Birmingham.

Limitations and Complications:
The best results are achieved on people with good skin elasticity and who are at or near their normal weight. Hence, you should stabilise body weight prior to the operation.

Chest infections and thrombosis (blood clots) are possible complications of any general anaesthetic but are more likely if you smoke or are very overweight.

Complications of the procedure are uncommon, but include irregular body contours, skin discoloration, scars, collection of blood or fluid under the skin, infection and skin numbness.
