What are the benefits of liposculpture surgery?

Liposuction, or fat removal surgery,  also known as liposculpture or lipoplasty. Essentially liposuction is the targeted removal of fatty deposits with the use of cannulae and a vacuum. It can be performed on men and women and virtually anywhere on the body, including the face. 

Common areas for liposuction include the abdomen, hips, flanks, inner and outer thighs, knees and chin. It is sometimes performed to complement other surgical procedures such as neck lifts, tummy tucks and gynaecomastia (which is the build-up of fat tissues in the male chest) and remains the most effective method for removing fat cells in certain areas. There are different methods used including the tumescent technique, Ultrasonic liposuction, Power Assisted Lipoplasty (PAL) and SmartLipo™. The type of procedure most effective for you will be discussed with Mr Karidis during your consultation at our London clinic.

How can you expect to feel after liposuction?

When you return to your room after your liposuction surgery, you’ll notice a drip in the back of your hand through which intravenous fluids will be administered. As you’ll lose some fluid, along with the fat during liposuction, it is normal to practise for the anaesthetist to give you intravenous fluids to replace those lost in the procedure. 

Moreover, you will be wearing a snugly-fitting compression garment. This must be worn over the treated area to control swelling and bleeding, and to help your skin shrink to fit your new contour. You may feel a little drowsy as a result of the anaesthesia but are likely to feel otherwise quite well. It is very common to have some bruising, swelling and minor initial lumpiness to the area. 

It is also fairly common to appear slightly uneven. This is often completely normal and will settle over the course of the coming weeks. You may feel numb or tingly in some areas due to some nerve irritation. This usually resolved within the first 6 months of surgery.
