The aim of liposuction Surgery is to re-contour your body to produce a more proportioned and often aesthetically enhanced shape. The technique of liposuction Surgery has many applications and the range of procedures is available to both men and women. Women most frequently request liposuction Surgery to the hips, thighs and stomach. The most common area for men is the chest ‘Gynaecomastia’ and sides of the waist ‘love handles’.
The effect of the surgery should be permanent in the treated areas. However, although the fat cells that have been aspirated do not regenerate, a small percentage of these cells are left under the skin and muscle and will continue to store fat if excessive weight is regained.
Performed under anaesthetic, liposuction is the removal of fat cells. When we gain weight we do not grow more fat cells. ‘Getting fatter’ simply means that our existing fat cells have become swollen. Liposuction Surgery removes fat cells permanently and they are not replaced. A hollow metal tube is inserted through small incisions in the skin, which breaks up the fat cells that are then removed with a vacuum pump or syringe.
