What is Suction Lipectomy (Liposuction)?

Suction assisted lipectomy is an aesthetic (cosmetic) surgical procedure designed to remove localised collections of fat, such as occur on the thighs, buttocks and abdomen, as well as the arms, neck and under the chin.

When is Suction Lipectomy desirable?
Suction lipectomy may be used to improve your overall body appearance by reducing and recontouring localised collections of fat. It is not a substitute for weight reduction nor a cure for obesity.

How would liposuction help me?

A consultation with your plastic surgeon is the first step in considering a suction lipectomy. You should frankly discuss your goals and expectations, and your plastic surgeon will explain to you whether this operation is right for you. Surgical lipectomy, which involves removal of excess skin, as well as fat, may be advised instead of, or in addition to suction lipectomy. You should always keep in mind that the desired result is improvement, not perfection.

Liposuction Procedure

How important are psychological factors in relation to a liposuction procedure?

Emotional stability is the primary factor to be considered before any aesthetic surgery is performed. A "new body" does not guarantee a new life or an end to all personal problems. It is mostly the mental attitude of the individual that determines a successful outcome. Suction lipectomy can improve your appearance and renew your self-confidence; the rest is entirely up to you.

How is Suction Lipectomy performed?

Either local or general anaesthesia may be advised, depending on the extent of the procedure. A cannula attached to a high powered suction pump is inserted through a small incision and the bulging fat removed. A pressure garment is usually worn for 2-3 months post-operatively in order to decrease bruising and swelling and to encourage the skin to contract to the new shape.

Will I be hospitalised for the liposculpture procedure?

Suction lipectomy can be performed as a Day Case or alternatively with a short hospital stay. This will depend on your general health and the extent of the procedure.

Are there any side effects of liposculpture/suction?

Bruising and swelling are common - the bruising usually subsiding in 3 weeks and the swelling in 8 weeks. Other complications such as infection and prominent scars are unusual. Slight irregularities such as grooving under the skin may occur and this may be accompanied by looseness of the skin-although the skin does usually contract over a period of time.

What results can I expect from liposculpture?

Suction lipectomy is ideal for patients who have bulges which persist after diet and exercise. It is not a substitute for weight loss. Usually the overlying skin will contract following suction lipectomy, however in some circumstances a procedure designed to remove excess skin may also be required.

Will the liposuction procedure leave any scars?

Although your surgeon will make every effort to keep them as inconspicuous as possible, scars are the inevitable result of any surgery. Because of their small size (usually about 1 cm) scars are not usually significant after liposuction.
When can I resume normal activities following the liposuction?

Returning to your normal activities is an individual matter. Your surgeon will advise you on your schedule, but most activities may be resumed within a few weeks. Many return to work after one week, and some even sooner.
