What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure designed to remove fat deposits in areas of the body where diet and exercise alone cannot have an impact. This may include areas like abdomen, thighs, arms or buttocks.
Laser treatment can be an ideal way for those who already have healthy weight and wish to improve their body contour, as well as those struggling with stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond well to diet or exercise.
During stomach liposuction, a surgeon makes an incision and inserts a cannula into it to drain fluid and fat deposits from within the abdomen. Subsequently, they close off their incision.
After your procedure, a small scar may remain. After applying pressure with bandages and compression garments to help heal it faster.
When dealing with stubborn areas of fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise, liposuction might be an appropriate solution. Your healthcare provider will evaluate your health and goals before suggesting the appropriate procedure for you.
How does liposuction work?
Stomach Liposuction permanently eradicates fat cells from the abdominal region, so they won’t return or shift where they store fat; and your body won’t adapt to the new contours.
Your surgeon will use either local or general anaesthesia during your procedure to numb the area you want treated, before making small incisions around it and inserting a cannula, or tube, into any fatty tissue that requires removal.
The cannula moves back and forth, dislodging fat from its source: muscles beneath. Once loosed, the fat is then collected by suction through a cannula into a sterile collection system.
Liposuction can be an effective solution to rid yourself of stubborn fat deposits in multiple parts of the body at once, helping improve its appearance across several areas at once and being an ideal option for those who have lost weight but still have stubborn trouble spots.

What are the risks of liposuction?
Liposuction is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure used to shape and improve body contouring, lose weight and remove stubborn fat deposits that cannot be addressed through diet and exercise alone.
As with any surgical procedure, liposuction poses risks and side effects which should be carefully evaluated prior to starting any procedure. Some potential adverse reactions of liposuction include bruising, swelling, pain and numbness – which should all be carefully considered prior to getting treatment.
Risks of Infection: Liposuction can pose risk of infection as its cannula (tube) punctures your skin, potentially leading to severe infections that could become life-threatening. Furthermore, it could penetrate too deeply into an internal organ and require emergency surgery as repairs, says our plastic surgeon.
Skin Dents: Sometimes when extracting large volumes of fat at once from a specific part of the body, skin dents may result which appear unnatural or undesirable. Most will heal with time alone but some cases require further liposuction touch-up treatments to resolve permanently.
