What Is Liposuction Surgery?
Patients typically undergo liposuction surgery when they want stubborn areas of body fat removed. The aim of the procedure is to contour the body and produce a slimmer, flatter figure. For example, you may have an area of fat on your abdomen or hips that you can’t get rid of, despite a healthy diet and exercise. If this is the case, then liposuction may be right for you.
Before you come to a decision about whether you want to proceed with liposuction surgery, you will have a full consultation with Mr Sierakowski. He will listen to your desired goals and talk you through the available options, to help you achieve them. In addition, he will talk you through the potential risks of the procedure and answer any questions you may have about liposuction surgery.
What To Expect From Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction surgery involves sucking out deposits of fat using a device called a cannula, which is attached to a suction machine. The fat is sucked out into a canister, which is then discarded, or may be used as fat graft in a technique called lipofilling. Areas commonly targeted by liposuction include the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks and upper arms.
