Spot Fat Reduction/Liposuction

Liposuction (fat suction) has revolutionised body contour surgery in recent years and is now an internationally approved and accepted method of removing unwanted fat from the body.

Most people are self conscious about certain areas of their body. Unfortunately diet and exercise are not always enough. Liposuction is a technique designed to resculpture nearly all body parts which have stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to exercise or diet. It is not a method of reducing weight but one of improving the contour of the body.

our body produces a specific number of fat cells which remain constant throughout life. Weight gain and loss is achieved through the expansion and contraction of these fat cells. Liposuction works by removing fat cells and withdrawing fat via small incisions, thus changing the contour of the body. Once fat cells have been removed, the body cannot produce more.

Liposuction can be performed on any area of the body and is often combined with other procedures such as a facelift or abdominoplasty, thus producing better, longer lasting results.

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic operations due to its excellent safety record and grafting results. It is an extremely successful operation, permanently removing unwanted areas of unsightly fat. As with any other cosmetic surgery, this can bring increased confidence and happiness to the patient.

Common areas for liposuction include:- Abdomen, Arms, Buttocks, Calfs, Chest (men), Chin, Hips, Jowls, Knees, Thighs and Waist.
