When Do We Recommend Liposuction?
Liposuction is ideal for patients who want to eliminate areas of fat deposits that are resistant to exercise and diet. These fat deposits give rise to unwanted body shape and are often described by patients as “stubborn fat”.
The body areas that are most commonly a concern for patients and result in their seeking out treatment options are the inner thighs and inner knees, saddlebags, the abdomen, love handles and lower back fat, upper arms, buttocks, and double chins. In men, Liposuction has been found effective in treating unwanted fat deposits in the male chest area. *

The aim of the procedure is to redefine those areas of the body contour that are of concern to the patient.

The recovery process is variable amongst patients and this is determined by an individual’s response to the treatment itself. *
There will be definite swelling and bruising, however, this is only temporary. The patient wears an after treatment garment for up to 4 weeks so that the swelling is not visible. Your medical team will advise the amount of time you should take off from work and activities for your recovery.
How Does It Work?
Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure and not a weight loss procedure. It is often found that once a patient has undergone the procedure they pay more attention to their diet and exercise routines, aside from other lifestyle considerations and as a result, there is added weight loss as well. These treatments are inspirational for patients who have struggled with their body shape and have been unable to achieve results through other means. *
Once a patient has decided on investigating the possibilities of such treatments a consultation is made our doctor. The purpose of the consultation is to determine if a candidate is a suitable patient for the procedure. A detailed consultation and examination with all the necessary explanations will enable the patient to make an informed decision. Our preparation process, procedure, and after-care are handled by highly trained professionals who will guide the patient through the entire process.
