Despite working on diet and exercise, it can be difficult to get the exact look you want for your abdominal area. If you are in the North West, Liposuction in Bolton would assist you in achieving your goals.

Dealing with stubborn fat and skin around the abdomen is something many people struggle with. This is why both abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction are popular procedures.

Mr Khan is experienced in both. He can help you achieve the change you are looking for in your appearance and the added benefits that come with this.

Having Liposuction in Bolton

Liposuction removes excess and stubborn fat from the body. This may be difficult to get rid of in any other way. These fatty deposits most commonly occur in very specific areas so can be targeted with treatment. These include around the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs and chin.

Liposuction involves using a thin metal tube that is inserted into the body and attached to a vacuum pump. The vacuum removes the fat quickly and effectively so you can see results soon after the procedure.

According to the NHS, the aim of liposuction is to alter body shape. The results are generally long-lasting, providing you maintain a healthy weight. The best outcome is achieved on patients who are of normal weight and where the skin is tight.

Whilst liposuction is often considered a cosmetic procedure, it can also be used to treat medical conditions. These include lymphoedema and lipoedema and treatment or referrals would be advised by visiting your GP.

In most cases, liposuction is performed under general anaesthetic. There may be an alternative if just a small amount of fat is being removed.

There are both dry and wet liposuction procedures. The latter involves the injection of a fluid mixture. This helps reduce bleeding, swelling and bruising.

Post-surgery, you will be given advice on aftercare and achieving the most successful recovery possible.


Abdominoplasty surgery involves removing skin and fat from below the tummy button. It can also involve the tightening and repositioning of the muscles in this area. It is popular with women who have finished having their families.
