The procedure of Liposuction contouring can be an outstanding way to shape, tone and contour your body. The fat removed will rarely be replaced by your body, so the results of your treatment will be long-lasting. Liposuction should not be used as a method to lose weight or with an expectant outcome of less cellulite or stretch marks as this will not be the case.
- Tone and increase definition of certain body areas.
- Improve your appearance.
- Remove the fat permanently.
- Long lasting results.
The treatment takes from one to three hours and the amount of fat that is to be removed will influence this timescale. If the specific areas are small the procedure may be conducted under local anaesthetic but if the areas are of a larger size, then general anaesthetic will need to be used and a likelihood of an overnight stay. A salt water solution is infiltrated into the specified areas and then a thin metal tube (cannula) is inserted into the body. A vacuum pump (liposuction) or a syringe (liposculpture) is used to suck the fat out via the cannula. This may need to be repeated numerous times to remove all the desired fat. The incisions that are made are not of a significant size, so they will heal by themselves without the need of stitches.
