Liposuction / Fat Removal

Liposuction Surgery at the Belvedere Clinic London, Kent & Essex

Liposuction Surgery for Men & Women


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 highly noticeable 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.*

About Your Liposuction Procedure

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 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. *

Liposuction FAQs

What are the most common areas for Liposuction ?

Liposuction is among the top options to remove fat from body areas where fat is usually accumulated. These areas differ for men and women! For males the most frequently treated body areas are belly, flanks, breasts (in cases of gynecomastia) and chin/neck! For females the most frequent treatments take place at hips,thighs, arms, buttocks and breasts.

How much fat can be taken? Can you treat multiple areas at once ?

Only a doctor would be able to tell you how much body fat can be removed from a patient in one operation. Remember that this is not meant as a weight loss alternative. The idea behind the procedure is to create a more appealing silhouette. There may not actually be that much weight lost, but the slimmer profile is the promised reward.

How soon will I see my results? What is the recovery time ?

That depends on the extensiveness of the operation, how much fat is being removed as well as how many areas were addressed by a single procedure. Many patients have reported dynamic results within days of the procedure and many others had to wait 3 months and more. It will be important to consult a doctor before any realistic projections can be made.
