Which areas can be done?
Liposuction surgery can be performed on anything between the chin and the ankles.
Can all fat be removed?
Only subcutaneous fat can be removed. This is the fat layer between the skin and the muscles.
Visceral fat surrounds your organs and can’t be removed with liposuction.
There are two types of fat cells subcutaneously, active and inactive or stubborn fat cells. Active fat cells responds quickly to crash diets. Inactive fat cells are stubborn like the name indicates. They are genetically deposited, and those are the fat cells targeted with liposuction.

What are the risks associated with liposuction surgery?
- Infection: The doctor will prescribe Antibiotics to prevent infection.
- Bleeding: The pressure is essential and will help prevent bleeding. The local anaesthesia causes vasoconstriction. That means the medication helps the veins to contract in order to reduce bleeding.
- Deep vein thrombosis: This is prevented by administering intravenous fluids throughout the procedure and the implementation of the tumescent technique. You will also be given advice about staying hydrated post-operatively and being ambulant.
- Shock: Not more than 30% of body surface is done per procedure. There are definite boundaries to keep as far as how much fat can be removed, which is measured in liter measurements. This is once again to ensure the safety of our patients.
If I have any chronic illnesses eg. asthma or hypertension, will I still be able to have liposuction done?
Each patient is carefully evaluated by the doctor during the consultation.
“People will stare. Make it worth their while.”
