LIPOSUCTION

 

Liposuction

Frequently asked questions

If you are at your preferred and stable weight and you have stubborn areas of fatty tissue that you have not been able to lose with diet and exercise, then liposuction may be the right procedure for you.

It aims to naturally improve the shape of selected areas of your body by removing these stubborn areas of fat. However, in liposuction surgery, less may be more for a smooth and more natural look and the procedure may have to be repeated if large volumes need removing.

If your weight is stable, with no large fluctuations, then the results will be long standing. The areas of liposuction are somewhat protected from mild weight gain, but the results can alter if this is considerable.

Liposuction is generally not appropriate as a procedure for areas on the body where there is a lot of loose overlying skin. It also cannot be used as a means of weight loss.

Low to medium volume liposuction is a very safe technique. The potential risks increase considerably as more volume is removed, hence I do not offer large volume liposuction. If a considerable amount needs to be removed (over 5 litres), then for patient safety, I will split the procedure into two stages, with a minimum 6-month gap in between treatments. I do not currently offer Vaser liposuction.

Liposuction is not suitable for body areas with a lot of excess skin, as this will be exaggerated after the treatment and will look unsightly. Skin retraction does occur to an extent, but there is a limit to this and depends on the individual skin quality. Best results are seen in people with good skin quality and localised lipodystrophy where there are pockets of fat difficult to lose with diet and exercise. Other good candidates for liposuction, are people who are happy with their current weight and are not prepared to lose a lot more just to remove these stubborn areas.

In general terms there is always some discomfort and bruising involved (more on the legs that the torso), risk of skin numbness, loose overlying skin that might require removal, risk of infection, poor scarring, bleeding, degrees of asymmetry, prolonged swelling, lumpiness, unevenness in the areas of liposuction, DVT (clot in the leg), PE (clot in the lung) and need for revision surgery.

With all liposuction cases, there is always a risk of unevenness when fat is removed. It might sound counterintuitive, but the fat left behind is as important as what is removed and for smoother more natural results, less is more in liposuction.

This risk is minimized by using power assisted liposuction, which allows for a more even, less aggressive fat removal, resulting in less bruising and swelling.

Very rarely and usually after large volume liposuction, some of the oils of the fat (rarely fat itself), might enter the blood circulation of the patient. This can cause a complication referred to as, fat embolism, which can cause neurological symptoms such as mild confusion/tiredness, that spontaneously resolves (symptoms typically start at about 72hrs). Rarely, a much more severe illness develops, with shortness of breast, significant confusion, lethargy, rash, requiring hospitalisation. This is extremely rare with low volume liposuction and much more common with buttock fat injections during a Brazilian buttock lift, which I do not offer.

With realistic expectations of what liposuction can achieve, patients are very happy with the results, but like all surgical procedures there is no guarantee for a perfect outcome.

    INNER THIGH LIFT

    Frequently asked questions

    If you have excess loose skin and fat in your under arm area (bingo wings), you might be a good candidate for this procedure. This happens as part of the natural aging process, or after significant weight loss.

    Brachioplasty aims to remove this excess tissue for a smoother, tighter and more youthful upper arm contour. This procedure is frequently complemented with an element of liposuction.

    The results can stand the test of time, but before considering any cosmetic abdominal procedure, it is imperative that you are at your desired and stable weight, as considerable post-operative weight fluctuations can affect the final aesthetic result. As part of the aging process the quality of tissues can also deteriorate over time, slightly altering the result of surgery.

    Although pregnancy following an abdominoplasty is not contraindicated, it is best to have completed your family before considering this procedure

    This is a big procedure and risks include discomfort, possible areas of numbness below the new belly button, poor scarring, infection, risk of bleeding, seroma (collection of fluid, 2-5%), DVT (clot in the legs), PE (clot in the lung), swollen abdomen, degrees of asymmetry, back pain, dog-ear (bumps at the edges of the scar), belly button necrosis, recurrence of the muscle gap due to over activity in the healing phase, wound breakdown and delayed wound healing.

    Very often you can also feel abdominal tightness, acid reflux and bloating after the surgery and there can be a change in your bowel habit. This varies between patients and generally improves with time.

    I will generally not perform this surgery on active smokers. This is because the risks are far greater, including infections, poor wound healing, seroma formation and poor scarring. If you smoke, it is best advised that you stop at least for one month before and after the procedure.

    The final result in terms of resolution of swelling will be at approximately 4 to 6 months. This varies between patients and the final result and quality of the scar is evident at one year.

    Wound breakdown and delayed wound healing can occur especially at the place of maximum tension, which is normally the middle of the scar. This is rare and as mentioned, more common in smokers and patients with other medical conditions, such as diabetes.

    As with any surgery, there is always the risk of stretching of the scars and the development of poor-quality thick scars, such as hypertrophic or keloid scars.

    Lastly like in all surgery, there are no guarantees for a perfect outcome.

        ARM LIFT (BRACHIOPLASTY)

         

        Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

        Frequently asked questions

        If you have excess loose skin and fat in your under arm area (bingo wings), you might be a good candidate for this procedure. This happens as part of the natural aging process, or after significant weight loss.

        Brachioplasty aims to remove this excess tissue for a smoother, tighter and more youthful upper arm contour. This procedure is frequently complemented with an element of liposuction.

        The results should last, but it is important that your weight is stable with no further loss planned. As part of the normal aging process, skin unfortunately loosens and collagen quality deteriorates, so invariably there is some additional laxity with time.

        This surgery is performed under general anaesthetic and it takes approximately 2 – 2.5 hours.

        Like with any other surgery, there is an element of mild discomfort and pain relief will be provided for you. There is also a small risk of infection, bleeding (haematoma), swelling, seroma, bruising, formation of a bad scar, asymmetry, over/under correction, recurrence of the old shape needing re operation.

        The main risk with this procedure is delayed wound healing and wound breakdown. These can be minimised with meticulous surgical technique, conservative removal of skin with comfortable closure and the use of the surgical garment.

        Swelling and bruising progressively reduce over the course of approximately two weeks, but the swelling might take a little longer to completely resolve and this can vary between patients.
        There is always the risk of stretching of the scars and development of poor-quality thick scars, such as hypertrophic or keloid scars.

        Lastly like in all surgery, there are no guarantees for a perfect outcome.
