BODY CONTOUR THAT COMPLEMENTS OVERALL APPEARANCE
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure used to remove excess deposits of subcutaneous fat. It is carried out on areas of the body, such as the abdomen, waist, thighs, arms, back, calf, and armpit where large pockets of fat tend to collect. Cosmetic surgeons often use Lipo in conjunction with other treatments to enhance body contouring results.
Harmonious & Natural-Looking Results
By targeting and reducing excess fat in one area of the body, it can improve the overall body fat distribution. This results in a better-balanced body contour that looks natural and subtle.
Scarring is a telltale sign of surgery and is a complexion blemish. However, it is inevitable. Scars are caused by incisions to insert the cannula and suction out unwanted fat. To minimise scarring, our surgeons ensure that the length of the incision(s) is as short as possible; and that incisions are always in an inconspicuous place.
Before the liposuction procedure, anesthesia is administered in the surgical area.
Through a few keyhole skin incisions, a liposuction cannula is inserted under the skin to break up fat.
Afterward, fat is suctioned out until a nice contour is obtained. The number of fat cells decreases after treatment.
Liposuction permanently removes fat cells, altering the shape of the body. Fat that is suctioned out can be used for fat grafting to the face for rejuvenation or to the breast for augmentation.
