If you’re struggling with stubborn pockets of fat that resist your best efforts through diet and exercise, liposuction might be the solution you’ve been seeking.

In this blog, we’ll look into what liposuction is, who it’s suitable for, the procedure itself, and what you can expect in terms of results and aftercare.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure where fat is selectively removed from specific areas of the body. This technique is particularly effective for targeting stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to traditional weight loss methods such as low-calorie diets or rigorous exercise regimes. Common areas treated include the outer thighs, saddlebags, abdomen, and flanks.

Who is Liposuction For?

Liposuction is suitable for individuals who have stubborn fatty areas that refuse to budge despite their best efforts.

However, it is important to be at a stable weight and medically fit before undergoing the operation. Ideal candidates should have good skin elasticity so that the skin can adapt smoothly to the new contours of the body post-procedure.

The Procedure: What to Expect

Consultation and Marking

On the day of surgery, you’ll meet with Mr. Lambe, our experienced surgeon, who will carefully mark the areas to be treated. This mapping is crucial as it guides the procedure and ensures precision.

Anesthesia and Fluid Injection

Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure can be performed either under local anaesthesia (while you are awake) or general anaesthesia (while you are asleep). A special fluid mixture containing anaesthetic and adrenaline is injected into the targeted area to control pain and bleeding.

Fat Removal

Tiny incisions are made in the skin, through which a cannula (a thin tube) is inserted to break up and suction out the fat. These incisions are strategically placed to minimise visible scarring. Importantly, they are not placed symmetrically, as this would be more noticeable than offset marks. The procedure typically takes between 2 to 2.5 hours.

After-S

Expected Results

The best results are typically seen in areas where the skin is tight and can spring back into shape, such as the outer thighs and saddlebag regions. Treated areas often result in a better fit for clothing, enhancing your overall silhouette and boosting your confidence.

Aftercare Guidance

Proper aftercare is essential for achieving the best results from your liposuction procedure.

Wearing a sports bra for 6-8 weeks will provide additional support and aid in healing.

Following all postoperative instructions from your surgeon will ensure a smooth recovery and optimal outcomes.

Post-Procedure Care and Recovery

Compression Garment

After the surgery, you will return from the theatre wearing a compression garment. This is an essential part of the aftercare regimen as it helps to reduce swelling and fluid accumulation and ensures that the skin adheres smoothly to your new contours.

Stitches and Healing

You will have tiny wounds that are closed with dissolving stitches, minimising the need for further removal processes.

Hospital Stay and Initial Recovery

Most patients will stay in the hospital for one night following the procedure. You will be encouraged to start walking the day after your surgery to promote circulation and aid in recovery.

Time Off Work

For those in sedentary roles, a two-week break from work is recommended to allow for initial healing. Driving should be avoided for at least three weeks post-surgery.

Exercise and Bathing

Exercise should be postponed for about eight weeks to ensure proper healing. You can resume showering after three days, but bathing should be avoided until all wounds have completely healed.
