Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery option that offers you a more toned, slimmer and proportional body. It’s often called liposculpture or lipoplasty and involves removing the fatty tissue from your body.
Pockets of fat can develop in areas of the lower back, stomach, thighs, hips, bum, upper arms and male chest and they can be difficult to shift through diet and exercise alone. Sometimes after weight loss some fat just won’t go. Liposuction can help remove this fat and re-shape your figure.
Often liposuction is combined with other cosmetic surgeries to achieve the body you want. For example, a tummy tuck and liposuction may achieve the best results for you.
Liposuction can take up to three hours and depends on the number of areas you’re having treated. It’s performed under general anaesthetic.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is performed to remove any excess fatty tissue and skin from your abdomen. It reshapes, tightens and flattens your stomach area to produce a slimmer, smoother and shapelier figure.
The tummy tuck procedure is popular with post pregnancy women or patients who’ve undergone significant weight loss and, who are left with excess, loose and saggy skin. An abdominoplasty removes this excess skin, tightens abdominal muscles that have been stretched and, flattens the stomach.
You can have standard, extended or mini tummy tuck surgery. A modified or mini abdominoplasty involves the removal of hanging, crinkly skin and fat over the pubic area that’s often known as an apron. A tummy tuck can be performed with liposuction.
Your cosmetic surgeon will offer clear advice and recommend the best tummy tuck procedure to meet your needs. It normally takes up to three hours under general anaesthetic.
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty or arm reduction surgery, is often chosen by men and women whose arms are drooping beneath the underarm and elbow. This sagging skin under the arm can be difficult to tone and often occurs as we age or after weight loss.
An arm lift is a cosmetic procedure performed to tighten underarm skin and allows you to wear short sleeved tops with confidence again.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and involves removing and tightening excess skin under your arm. Often liposuction is also used with arm lift surgery to remove surplus fat and achieve a shapelier arm.
A labiaplasty reshapes and resizes a woman’s inner labia (inner lips) at the opening of the vagina.
A labiaplasty can be carefully performed for functional or aesthetic reasons. Some women have particularly enlarged labia minora. This may cause discomfort during some activities such as sports and sexual intercourse and also self-consciousness if they protrude underneath clothing. Sometimes the labia are stretched during childbirth or they are asymmetrical. This procedure usually takes about an hour under local anaesthetic.
We can also perform a vaginoplasty for women whose vaginal muscles have been stretched in child birth and haven’t regained their normal tone. This procedure creates a tighter feel inside and at the vaginal entrance.
Scar revision surgery is carried out to reduce or remove the appearance of scarring. Visible scars from burns, injury, acne, chickenpox and other surgery can make you feel self-conscious
Scar revision is a day case procedure performed under local anaesthetic. It flattens and smooths out scarred skin and improves your self-esteem.
