Liposuction is an aesthetic procedure that removes stubborn fat from localized areas and improves body contour and proportions. It can be performed alone or along with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, breast lift or Brazilian butt lift.

While traditional liposuction removes excess stubborn fat from certain areas of the body, high definition liposuction takes that to the next level by etching the musculature to accentuate the natural lines of the body and enhance the muscular definition in order to achieve a more sculpted body.

If you have unwanted stubborn fat in your abdomen, flanks, arms, neck or thighs that are disproportionate to the rest of your body and do not improve with diet, exercise or non invasive procedures, liposuction can help you to get rid of them.
While liposuction is a very effective treatment to remove localized areas of stubborn fat, it is not a weight loss procedure. It is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.
Liposuction is not an effective treatment for cellulite but it may help when combined with other procedures such as subcision.
Liposuction does not tighten loose skin but can be combined with bodyTite for a better result.


1. What should I know before getting liposuction?

Before undergoing a liposuction surgery:
You should not be more than 5 kg overweight, and your weight should be stable. You may need to lose weight to be a better candidate for liposuction.
You can’t smoke. Smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk of serious complications during and after surgery.
You should have a minimal amount of excess skin and good skin elasticity.
Liposuction removes fat but does not tighten skin, and it does not improve the look of cellulite. Other procedures can be combined to address loose skin and cellulite.

2. What type of anesthesia will I have?

Liposuction can be performed under tumescent local anesthesia at the clinic when treating localized areas or under general anesthesia in a hospital setting when treating the full body.

3. What to expect after the surgery?

It is normal to have swelling and some bruising for a few days after liposuction, at The Skin Clinic we are proud to have developed techniques that reduce them tremendously. You will feel some discomfort and soreness after the procedure but it will be controlled with pain meds. You will need to wear tight garments for weeks to decrease the swelling and keep your skin compressed.
You will be able to resume your normal activities within 5 days and you will be able to return to work within a few days.

4. How long will the results last?

You may notice an improved body contour immediately after your procedure, but an accurate picture of your liposuction results can take several months.
The results of liposuction surgery are technically permanent. However, weight gain, aging, pregnancy, family genes, and lifestyle factors may affect your results. It is crucial to maintain healthy habits and a stable weight to maintain your liposuction results.
Following liposuction, if you continue to eat excess calories, fat will no longer be stored in the cells that have been removed but will be stored in other body parts.

5. What type of incisions will I have?

In general, incisions will be very small 0.5-1cm in length, placed in hidden areas and fade away with time and become barely visible. At The Skin Clinic, we also use laser skin resurfacing to improve the quality of the scar.

6. What are the possible complications and risks of liposuction?

Complications sometimes occur, but with proper patient preparation, careful execution and follow up we reduce their occurrence and if they ever occur we are able to manage them.
The risks of liposuction will be discussed in full details during the consultation.
