What is Liposculpture?
Liposculpture or Liposculpting is a very effective procedure designed to remove unwanted localised fat deposits. Patients seek liposculpture in order to develop a more proportioned and harmonious figure and to look better in certain types of clothes. This is particularly popular among women who want to get back in shape after pregnancy.
Through tiny incisions, the surgeon first injects anaesthetic fluid into the fat. He then uses a fine cannula to suck out the fat. The operation is usually performed under local anaesthesia with sedation.
It takes between sixty minutes to three hours depending on the amount of fat to be removed and most patients go home the same day. Larger cases remain in hospital for one or two nights.

If your work is not physical, expect to return to work within one week and you can expect to be back to normal physical exercise within four to six weeks. The treated areas are likely to be swollen. You will have to wear tight support garments for several weeks. Most patients are able to fully resume normal activity within three to four weeks. Sutures may not be required, but if any, will be removed after ten to fourteen days. As with all scars, these will fade over a period of time. In many patients, they heal to form very faint white lines.

What exactly is liposculpture?

How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the complexity of the procedure, the surgery can take between 1 and 4 hours.
Are the results permanent?
Yes, as all results are permanent, however if you can still gain weight in the areas in which you had the procedure, so we advise you to keep to a healthy weight and exercise regularly.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
We recommend that people take up to two weeks off work following the procedure (more if your job is particularly physical). Strenuous activities, heavy lifting and intense exercise should be avoided for about 6 weeks after your surgery.
Are there any alternatives to this surgery?
Depending on the results you are trying to achieve, there may be various surgical and non surgical options available to you. You can discuss this fully at your free consultation.
Can I combine this procedure with other surgery?
Yes, you can combine this procedure with other breast or body surgeries. You can discuss this in full at your free consultation.
Will I have altered sensation in the area?
Whenever skin is cut, nerves are also cut; this may result in altered sensation to the area, particularly at the incision site. All care will be taken to maintain sensation as much as possible.
What weight should I be for surgery?
You should be at a healthy weight for your height when you have surgery as this lowers risks related to anaesthetic. For the best aesthetic results, we recommend that you are at your ideal weight at the time of surgery as further weight loss or gain can change the results of your surgery.
When can I fly after the procedure?
You should check with your surgeon regarding safe timings of air travel following your surgery. Many airlines have their own protocols and you should inform your travel insurance company if you have had recent surgery.
We recommend that in the weeks after surgery, you are close to one of the locations Nu Cosmetic Clinic can refer you to in case you have any concerns, so foreign holidays may be best avoided until a few months after your procedure.
