Liposuction is the definitive method for removing unwanted fat permanently, and allows for a high level of precision in treating specific areas of the body. Scars are very inconspicuous, and if the procedure is chosen well, the results can be very satisfying. However, it is a surgical procedure, and comes with the risks of anaesthesia as well as the potential complications mentioned. Also, if diet and exercise are not part of the post-operative routine, the remaining cells can continue to accumulate fat and grow in size.
Alternatives to liposuction include minimally-invasive techniques include fat freezing techniques and body threadlifting, as well as surgical excisional techniques such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), brachioplasty (arms), thighplasty (thighs) and mastopexy (breasts). As we offer all these procedures, a conversation with our plastic surgeon will help you to make the right decision for your desires.
