The traditional approach to liposuction may be adopted if the patient has a significant amount of fat. This method of liposuction uses a larger cannula which can result in more bruising and increased recovery time.

Liposuction is a surgical method that removes fat cells from unwanted areas that deposit on the body such as the hips, tummy, back, thighs and buttocks. Fat can often be disproportionate, settling in places where it’s difficult to shift. Liposuction can be combined with other procedures such as a buttock fat transfer; in which the fat is taken from donor areas and then re-injected into the buttocks and hips to redefine the body shape.
Your surgeon will work with you to determine the best approach to liposuction to improve your overall body shape. Liposuction is suitable for treating many areas ranging from the more common areas to under the chin (double chin), on the thighs (thigh chafing), knees, back (bra rolls) and chest (gynecomastia). Ideally, it would help if you were as close as possible to your goal weight before considering liposuction. The operation can also be combined with a tummy tuck to optimise results and improve lax and weakened muscles. If your skin has good elasticity and your muscles are relatively toned, an abdominoplasty isn’t always required. However, many find that after losing weight, there is some degree of excess skin that remains, limiting the results of liposuction alone, which is why the two procedures are often combined. It can sometimes be part of a ‘mummy makeover’ where the surgeon will address pregnancy-related concerns with several combination procedures.⠀

Excellent treatment and services, I have done several different treatments with various nurses, everyone is very professional and patient, and addresses exactly what I have in mindAS
Today I had fillers for the areas in my face that needed it most and profhilo to treat crepey skin on my neck. The whole treatment went so smoothly and painlessly. Karishma is a true professional in non-surgical procedures and I felt so relaxed and reassured with her doing it. 111 Harley St aestheticians and cosmetic surgeons never disappoint.Mandana
I did a Clear Lift and Hollywood Facial with Rachael Myers and the results were amazing. I really see the difference – my skin became more firm, even, fine lines are less visible.Julia
I had a skin consultation Samia who was very knowledgable about acne and pigmentation. She then performed clear-skin and a chemical peel on me. It’s been a few days and honestly, my skin has never looked so good. I will be coming back to her again.Kole
Had a course of laser resurfacing to treat scarring, very happy with the results. Recommended a friend. My technician was Samia and honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else she was amazing.Max
