Body Contouring

"Our long experience and internationally recognized expertise means that we at The Asthetic World can offer you the widest range of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery."


Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and “sucks” fat from the body that you can’t seem to get rid of through diet and exercise. 

Liposuction is a highly versatile treatment that can remove fat in a wide range of areas, such as:

  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Chin
  • Calves
  • Ankles

In general, fat is removed via a cannula (a hollow tube) and a suction device. There are two different uses for liposuction: cosmetic liposuction to change the body's contour or shape and reconstructive, medically necessary liposuction. Reconstructive uses include treatment of lipedema, to remove excess fat in the chronic medical condition lymphedema, and to remove lipomas from areas of the body.

Liposuction by a certified experienced plastic surgeon is safe, with a low risk of life-threatening complications.

Some side effects and complications include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Pain, which may be temporary or chronic
  • Post-liposuction fat redistribution or post liposuction weight gain
  • Bruising
  • Infections in case of improper care
  • Swelling, in some cases, may persist for weeks


Am I a good Candidate for liposuction ?

You are a good candidate for Liposuction treatment, if you 

  • Live an active and healthy lifestyle
  • Do not have issues with skin elasticity
  • Are free from life-threatening illnesses
  • Have no conditions that impair healing
  • Have realistic expectations about the procedure


What should I expect during recovery?

When you wake from the anaesthesia, you will likely be wrapped in a compression garment and elastic bandages to help mitigate excess fluid build-up (swelling) and push the skin into your new contours. There will be some minor pain and discomfort, but it can usually be addressed through over-the-counter or prescription medications.

During the first week, you should expect to see some significant swelling and bruising in the treated area. These tend to dissipate within the first few weeks.



What kind of results can I expect from Liposuction?

You can expect to have permanent fat removal in the areas that were treated. Our bodies cannot produce new fat cells, so the areas treated by liposuction will never be able to hold fat to the same degree they used to.

Unfortunately, this does not mean that you won’t gain weight. If you ever become sedentary or have weight fluctuation, your body will store it in different areas than it used to. With that being said, if you are diligent about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, then you can look forward to enjoying your results for the rest of your life
