Liposuction has the unique ability to remove the unwanted stubborn areas of subcutaneous fat without adversely affecting other areas.

For example, if you find that your main aesthetic concern is the bulging fat on your stomach or thighs, and you’re satisfied with the other aspects of your body, then liposuction may be your most effective solution to create a contour that is smoother, leaner and more visually appealing.


Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can eliminate unwanted subcutaneous fat on your face, neck and body. This surgical technique removes localised collections of fatty tissue that lie just underneath the skin (subcutaneous adipose tissue) from your body. Small incisions are made to allow for the insertion of an aspiration cannula in order to suction fat cells out of the body. This procedure reduces fat cell count through suction as well as controlled cellular damage using heat. This damage is caused by moving the cannula within the fat deposits which breaking them down. The fat is then removed via lipo-suctioning. Patients should expect to wait for several weeks before the full benefits of their treatment become apparent due to swelling from the nature of the procedure.
