If you have a small area of stubborn fat that you just can’t shift, liposuction can help to remove unwanted fat cells and restore your self-confidence.
Treating small areas of the body with liposuction can help you to deal with particularly problematic areas. This procedure is ideal for treating the face, chin, neck and arms.
Why might you need liposuction in small areas?
Liposuction is designed to remove those small yet stubborn areas of fat once and for all. It can help to even out the proportions of your body and give you a brand new body shape.
What are the benefits of liposuction in small areas?
Liposuction is a versatile procedure. It can be used for both small and larger areas of the body.
Some of the benefits of liposuction in small areas include:
What does liposuction in small areas involve?
The principles of liposuction for small areas are the same as if the procedure was being used to treat a larger area.
A small incision will be made, allowing a thin tube connected to a pump to be inserted. The tube will then be manipulated in order to break up and suck away excess fat cells. The incision will then be stitched and bandaged.
Liposuction in small areas will be performed under local anaesthetic in the outpatient’s minor operations room. The procedure usually takes 30-60 minutes in total.
Complications may include:
If the sutures used are not dissolving, you will need a follow-up appointment in seven to ten days for suture removal. Your scars will need massaging and moisturising during the first month to aid with healing, and sun protection should be used for 18-24 months as the affected areas will be particularly prone to burning.
The cost of treatment will depend on the size of the area requiring treatment. Your surgeon will discuss the available options and associated costs with you during your consultation.
