Liposuction is one today’s most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for people who cannot get rid of stubborn fat pockets in their body despite routinely working out and observing a proper diet. The procedure addresses fat deposits in the abdomen and waist, thighs, hips, butt, arms, neck, back, chest, inner knees, calves, ankles, cheeks, and chins. If you are looking at getting mens liposuction, we have specialists for male breast liposuction and chest liposuction.

You are a good candidate for liposuction if:

  • You have a disproportionate body but you are not overweight
  • You have a realistic expectation of the procedure and result
  • You have tight and smooth skin
  • Your post pregnancy body is responding poorly on diet and exercise
You should understand that liposuction does not address obesity. The procedure is not a weight loss treatment but for reshaping and improving body contours. If you are overweight, you should not undergo a liposuction even if you have proportionate body shape. For people who wish to remove more than 4 litres of fat, mega-liposuction is needed. If this is your desire, then please contact us for more information on this procedure.

Benefits of liposuction:

  • Improved body contours
  • Enhanced self-image
  • Improved health
  • Safe removal of localised fat

There are several types of liposuction treatment to choose from. The laser-assisted liposuction melts fat using a concentrated laser beam light. It is designed to lessen inflammation, bruising and bleeding. The power-assisted liposuction uses a cannula (a thin tube) to extract fat through small incisions. Liposuction for men most commonly uses the power-assisted cannula, especially with breast reduction and chest reduction liposuction.

Then there’s the traditional suction-assisted liposuction which uses a small cannula attached to a pressurised vacuum. Your surgeon should explain to you in detailed how each the pros and cons of each technique, and help you decide which is more suitable for you.

Two weeks before your scheduled liposuction treatment, you may be asked to refrain from taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs.
