Liposuction

 

Liposuction is now an essential tool for the cosmetic surgery industry and, as an ever greater proportion of our population moves into the obese bracket, its popularity is increasing.

Liposuction is also know as “Lipoplasty” or “fat modelling” and, as the name suggests, is a cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat by using suction.

Liposuction is utilised in many different body areas including; the abdomen, the thighs, the buttocks, the neck and the backs of the arms.

Whilst liposuction has been around for the best part of a century, the technique has been radically reformed over recent years. The introduction of laser catheters to the procedure has led to significant reduction in complications rates whilst improving treatment times.
