Liposuction also known as lipoplasty, Suction Assisted Lipectomy (SAL) or Liposculpture, is the removal of fatty deposit from various area of the body. It is particularly effective for areas where fat is unable to be shifted by exercise or diet.

Common areas where liposuction is performed:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Breasts (both male and female)
We use the ‘tumescent technique’, where the surgeon injects large quantities of fluid through small incisions. The fluid reduces the risk of bleeding. The fast swells with fluid going into the fat layers. A cannula is then passed through the swollen fat cells. Suction through the cannula removes the fatty tissue and the fluid that has been injected.
