A general description of liposuction treatment is that it uses advanced technology to remove unwanted fat deposits from certain body areas. Commonly, this includes problem areas such as the stomach, thighs, upper arms, neck, and hips.
Before undergoing this procedure, you will have a consultation with the surgeon. At this stage, they will assess if you are a good candidate, then provide preparatory measures to take. This will usually involve a medical evaluation, along with asking you to stop taking certain medications. Typically, you won’t be able to take any anti-inflammatory drugs or blood thinners as it can increase bleeding during the treatment. Anyone that smokes will also have to avoid doing this leading up to the procedure.
Liposuction typically works by making tiny incisions and inserting a tiny tube into the treatment area. From here, the excess fat is essentially suctioned directly out of the body. You are given a choice as to what type of anesthesia you want – this can be local or general, depending on your preference. This ensures that you don’t feel a thing.
The exact procedure can vary depending on the type of liposuction you’ve chosen. We currently offer a range of liposuction treatments, including the traditional method alongside Vader Liposuction, Smartlipo Triplex, and Tumescent Liposuction.
