Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control and fitness.

Liposuction procedure slims and reshapes specific areas of the body removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and ultimately, enhancing the self-image.

Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:

About Liposuction Procedure

Lipo treatment or a liposuction operation is actually a formal liposuction cosmetic surgery procedure and involves liposuction fat removal by various modalities to achieve a liposuction surgery procedure. These may entail a regular or standard Suction Assisted Liposuction or the VASER Liposuction or LASER Liposuction. But these have come in to the market and have lost its charm in the western populations.

We use new liposuction methods and specifically use the WaterJet which is known as the Aquajet Liposuction and is currently rated as the topmost, safest and gentlest of liposuction procedures in the world.

Tummy liposuction, mini liposuction and that of some other areas may be achieved in only intravenous sedation and minimal anaesthesia. That is the best choice for this procedure with an operating time that depends in base at the areas of the body to be treated and the amount of fat to be removed. It is to be also noted that we regularly do liposuction for men.

Liposuction is performed through small incisions. First, sterile liquid solution is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma. Then a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through these incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.

Recovery and results

Once the procedure is completed a compression garment or elastic bandages may cover treatment areas to control swelling.

It may take several months for the swelling to fully dissipate, as it does, your new contours and enhanced self-image should continue to develop. The loss of excess fatty tissue should be permanently maintained with continued practices of healthy diet and fitness. However, substantial weight gain can alter an otherwise permanent result.

The decision to have liposuction surgery is personal and you can decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications of liposuction are acceptable. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk; however fortunately significant complications from liposuction are infrequent.

You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.

What's New?

Liposuction with Aquashape™

Whether it is removing unwanted fat permanently or using your fat as a natural filler, the Aquashape™ is the new liposuction procedure that can help.

During the Aquashape™ liposuction technique for women as also in lipo for men, excess fat is harvested and removed from targeted areas of your body where it is unwanted and not needed through a gentle process using a WaterJet.

WaterJet Assisted Liposuction/ Aquashape™ is the newest and most recent method available for liposuction. The body jet machine we use is the only WaterJet assisted liposuction machine approved by the FDA. The body jet is so gentle that the fat and surrounding tissue retains its integrity. This is important because with this method the fat that has been sucked out is in its purest form and can be reinjected into other parts of patient’s body to smooth wrinkles of the face or augment areas of the body like breast, buttocks and hands.

Advantages of Aquashape:

  • WaterJet method fluid dislodges fat, no brute force.
  • Local anaesthesia, less risk.
  • Efficient fluid management, less swelling.
  • Less time to perform surgery.
  • Close system that preserves and maintains fat cells sterile and ready to inject.
  • Long lasting results.
