Dieting and plenty of exercise is great for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes this isn’t enough to shift that stubborn fat and give you back the body you have been dreaming of. 

Liposuction can help to get rid of fat in those problematic areas, giving you a new body shape and a brand new you.

Why might you need liposuction?

Liposuction is used to finally shift stubborn fat deposits once and for all. It can help to restore body confidence and allow you to feel more confident in your own skin.

What are the benefits of liposuction?

After dieting and exercise, liposuction is the final way to achieve your brand new body shape by shifting fat from problem areas. 

Some of the benefits include:

  • Removing stubborn fat deposits
  • Creating a more evenly proportioned body shape
  • Reducing fat in areas where diet and exercise have no effect

What does liposuction involve?

The process permanently removes fat cells from problem areas. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the specific area through which a thin tube, connected to a pump, is inserted. The surgeon will then manoeuvre the tube to break up and suck away unwanted fat cells. Afterward, the incision will be stitched and bandaged. 

The procedure can be performed under either local or general anaesthetic, depending on your personal preferences and the size of the affected area. A follow-up appointment for the removal of stitches is usually required, though small areas of liposuction can be performed in the outpatient department. 

As with any surgical procedure, there is always the risk of complications. Specific complications of liposuction include:

  • Contour irregularities due to uneven fat removal
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Infection of the wound

Recovery Time

You should be prepared to stay in the hospital overnight, and a week off work is usually required. Strenuous activity should be avoided for two to three weeks. 

You will experience scarring of the areas where the incisions were made, although this will fade over time. Swelling, bruising and tenderness are also common to begin with. It is important to note that you will also need to wear a pressure garment following the operation.
