Liposuction is a plastic surgery treatment focused on fat reduction in specific areas of the body. It is one of the most popular body contouring treatments due to its relative less-invasiveness compared to some other body reshaping methods. However, getting liposuction done still entails a comprehensive screening and consultation with an expert medical professional, primarily to assess whether it is safe and suitable for you to undergo the procedure. Liposuction is a blanket term for a range of procedures, each differing slightly based on the region of the body they are performed in. The base concept remains the same nonetheless: excess fat is removed from a particular site through powerful suction. As such, it is important to assess whether the patient is comfortable and suitable for the procedure, and whether they have tried non-surgical methods like dieting and exercises prior to liposuction for fat reduction.

Our plastic and reconstructive surgery clinic in Birmingham, is well-equipped to provide liposuction treatment for highly specific requirements. Our expert staff will advise and guide you every step of the way, from initial consultations to a smooth road to post-surgery recovery.

Why Liposuction Is Important

Liposuction is opted for primarily for aesthetic reasons, by patients seeking out a reliable method to improve their body’s shape and contours by fat sculpting. Oftentimes, these patients choose liposuction because other methods of fat loss have proven ineffective in the long run, such as exercise, dieting and intermittent fasting. The most common regions for fat deposit removal through liposuction treatment are the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and back region. For patients who require fat deposit removal in more than one site, multiple liposuction sessions might be necessary. Liposuction may be required for patients who are facing significant health issues due to excess fat deposits as well.

Liposuction Procedure

Wherever the site of the liposuction, you will first be prepped for the surgery through general anaesthesia to reduce pain and discomfort. Before beginning the suction, the surgeon will intricately mark the areas for fat removal in your body.

  • The site is injected with an anaesthetic and specific medicine to minimise swelling, bleeding and other side effects.
  • A small incision measuring a few millimetre’s (or sometimes multiple small incisions) create an opening for the suction tube, which is connected to the vacuum machine.
  • The surgeon will take the suction tube across the fat removal region carefully and extract the excess fat in different areas to make sure they are all even and of better contour.

You will not feel pain during the procedure. You will be placed under observation and usually discharged the next day. Our liposuction clinic in Birmingham, gives every client unparalleled care and attention for post-surgery recovery, so you’re in safe hands!

A liposuction procedure usually takes around one to two hours but can last longer in more complicated cases where multiple sites have to be operated on.

Liposuction is usually not recommended for people who are overweight due to the potential risks it can bring post-surgery. Other non-surgical methods like dieting and exercises are often recommended prior to liposuction in these cases.

No, you need not be on any diet as such, but it is recommended that you avoid heavy salt intake, as it can increase swelling in the operated regions.
