Liposuction is a procedure used for removing fat deposits from the body. These are usually areas resistant to the effects of weight loss programmes, – particularly the upper arms, flanks, hips, back, tummy and thighs. It is NOT an operation to lose weight, as only modest amounts of fat are actually removed in proportion to the total body fat. It is NOT a good operation for patients with lots of skin excess or cellulite. A variant of liposuction called liposculpture refers to taking fat, often closer to the skin and in smaller amounts than standard liposuction, in such a way to produce a specific outline or shape, such as an artificial ‘six pack’ on the tummy wall. Most patients are self-conscious about the look of these areas -this may affect their choice of clothing, work, activities and self-confidence in relationships. ￼
Liposuction can be done a number of ways (vacuum, power-assisted, VASER, ultrasound assisted). I have extensive experience of all the latest techniques and will be able to advise which technique is best for you, depending on the areas of concern, the amount of skin laxity you have, the quality and thickness of the skin and subcutaneous fat and your desired overall shape. Many surgeons are only familiar with one or two techniques, so it is important to know, whoever you see, that they are suggesting the operation that is best for you rather than just suggesting the operation they are able to do. For more details of the procedure, see my ‘Liposuction Information Leaflet’ below. My patients are highly satisfied with their surgery. This includes hospital and nursing staff who have asked me to perform the operation after seeing my outcomes, and by personal recommendation of friends and relatives who like my friendly yet professional approach, and know they are in safe hands.
My patients are more comfortable with their appearance after surgery, their confidence and self-esteem is better. They feel they can wear more revealing clothing, clothing fits them better in general and often personal and sexual relationships improve. It is an operation I enjoy doing knowing predictably good results.
