Dieting and exercise regimes don’t always get rid of those stubborn fatty areas we loathe. Especially, abs, hips and thighs.
Liposuction is the removal of fat from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube called a cannula with the assistance of a powerful vacuum to reshape the area of treatment and liposculpture. It is carried out under general anaesthetic for larger areas.
The most frequently treated areas for women, are liposuction for:
- Tummy (Stomach / abdomen)
- love handles (muffin top)
- outer thighs
- anterior thighs
- inner thighs
- cheeks and
- liposuction neck / chin
With liposuction you are able to have multiple areas treated at the same time meaning procedure time can vary from 30 minutes – 4 hours.
Liposuction is not designed as a weight loss treatment or to tackle obesity. People who fall into this category will need to seek advice from their GP. Prior to your consultation your BMI (body mass index) will be assessed, this will help the surgeon determine your suitability. Normally up to 4 – 6 litres of fat can be removed, but you should be within two stone of your target healthy weight or normal range of a BMI.
There are physiological limitations as to the quantity of fat that can be removed at any one time. Realistic expectations are the most important aspect when considering liposuction. Your surgeon will discuss the limitations surrounding this procedure at your consultation.
You will need 7 – 10 days off work after a liposuction. During this time the treatment areas must be kept clean and dry. You will have small incision sights in the area treated there will be dissolvable sutures. Wearing your compression garment is also compulsory for 4 – 6 weeks this will help reduce swelling and improve your result.
