Liposuction, often referred to as “lipo” or “lipoplasty,” is a surgical intervention specifically designed to remove localised fat deposits that have proven resistant to traditional weight loss methods like diet and exercise. While it’s crucial to understand that liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle or a solution for weight loss, it serves as an effective body contouring method.

The procedure is versatile, targeting a variety of areas such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks, arms, and even the neck. Individuals opt for liposuction for a myriad of reasons, ranging from aesthetic desires like improving body symmetry to functional needs such as reducing skin irritation due to excess fat.


The liposuction process commences with an initial consultation where you’ll meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon. This meeting is not merely a formality but an essential part of the process. It includes thoroughly evaluating your body composition, fat distribution, skin quality, and overall health. The surgeon will listen attentively to your concerns, discuss your aesthetic objectives, and then formulate a tailored surgical plan that delineates the areas to be treated and the expected results.

The procedure is most commonly performed under general anaesthesia to ensure patient comfort. However, local anaesthesia with sedation may be considered for less extensive areas. The choice of anaesthesia is not arbitrary but is a collaborative decision between you and your surgeon, taking into account multiple factors such as your comfort, health status, and the complexity of the procedure.

Liposuction involves making discreet incisions in the skin near the area of excess fat. A thin hollow tube cannula is then inserted through these incisions. The cannula is moved back and forth to break up the fat cells, which are then suctioned out. The procedure may employ various techniques like tumescent liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, or laser-assisted liposuction, depending on your specific case. After the fat removal, the incisions are closed, and compression garments are applied. Topical antibiotic ointments may also be used to minimise the risk of postoperative infection.


Note: Final results may take time as swelling resolves, and tissues settle.


You may choose to undergo Liposuction for a number of reasons:

One of the most compelling benefits of liposuction is the dramatic improvement it can bring to your body contours. The procedure can redefine your silhouette, offering a more toned and proportionate physique.
Beyond the aesthetic realm, liposuction can offer functional benefits. For instance, the removal of excess fat from specific areas can alleviate physical discomfort, such as chafing or skin irritation.
The aesthetic and functional improvements often translate into psychological benefits. Many patients report a significant boost in self-esteem and newfound confidence, which positively influences both their social interactions and professional engagements.
