Achieve your ideal body shape
Liposuction – This is designed to re-contour areas that may be resistant to weight loss through diet and exercise. It is a targeted procedure and not done as a weight loss measure.
Whilst often considered less “serious” than surgery it is important to realise that it is still a significant intervention with its own set of risks and adverse outcomes. A specialist anaesthetist is always present, and it is performed only in accredited hospitals.

What's Involved in Liposuction?
Liposuction is a technique that targets fat cells in particular areas, removing stubborn fat deposits that are resisting diet modification and exercise. This is considered one of the safer cosmetic surgeries, though with all invasive procedures, risks do apply. Liposuction is used to create a slender body shape and decrease your body’s fat ratio.
During the procedure, a thin tube, which is called a cannula, is inserted into an inconspicuous location with the use of local or general anaesthetic. This is then connected to a suction device to remove the fat cells using a technique that will not damage surrounding tissues.
Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
Men and women can undergo liposuction, which can be undertaken by itself or in combination with other procedures. People who choose to have liposuction have generally experienced one or more of the following factors:
- It is difficult to find clothing that fits comfortably and creates the desired appearance.
- Diet and exercise have been improved and maintained, but fat deposits in areas such as the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen remain.
- Self-esteem and body confidence are low due to a dissatisfaction with body shape, size, or contour.
It is a recommended practice to obtain a stable and healthy weight prior to the procedure. Liposuction is not a method for weight loss.
Liposuction requires the skin at the targeted area to have adequate elasticity. This procedure does not tighten the skin.
Liposuction Treatment Areas
Most areas of the body can be targeted during liposuction. Common locations that are chosen include:
- YOUR SAFETY.
- Decrease excess fat.
- Produce a more pleasing figure.
