Liposuction contouring can be a great way to shape, tone and contour targeted areas of your body. The fat that is removed from these areas will not be replaced by your body, meaning that the results of the procedure are long-lasting. Please be aware that having liposuction should not be a shortcut to weight loss. Cellulite and or stretch marks will remain.
Benefits of the surgery

The procedure can usually take between one to three hours which is dependent upon the amount of fat that is removed. For smaller areas, the procedure can be conducted under local anesthetic but more commonly it will require general anesthetic and the possibility of an overnight stay. A salt water solution is permeated into the chosen areas to break up the fat before a thin metal tube (a cannula) is inserted. The cannula Is used to remove the fat by using a vacuum pump (liposuction) or a syringe (liposculpture). This may need to be repeated more than once to remove all of the desired fat. The incisions are small, heal well and are hardly noticeable.
