If you are concerned about fat deposits anywhere on your body and if you cannot get rid of them with regular sport and healthy diet , liposuction is the operation you need.

Performed under sedation or general anesthesia, the fat tissue is first emulsified by injecting a large quantity of saline mixed with local anesthetic. Then, through tiny incisions , a thin instrument is introduced under your skin and connected to a vacuum system.

All the fat of the different areas is suctioned out.When it is all finished, the wounds are closed with a stitch.

Then,you are supposed to wear a support garment for 3 weeks.

The results are only visible after 1 to 3 months.

Time off work is 1 week and you can get back to the gym within the next 3 weeks.
