Many people from all walks of life consider liposuction surgery. It is one of the more popular cosmetic surgeries and the liposuction surgery Liverpool patients opt for will help them reach their aesthetic goals and build self-esteem and confidence. Mr Irfan Khan offers liposuction to patients in Liverpool and the surrounding area. Understanding what the surgery entails and whether it is the right option for your circumstances is vital before making a final decision. Let’s explore liposuction in more depth.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat from specific areas of the body. These fatty deposits are usually difficult to get rid of via exercise and diet alone. They commonly occur in areas around the hips, buttocks, abdomen, thighs and chin. Liposuction uses a thin metal tube, inserted directly into the affected area and then attached onto a vacuum pump. The surgeon then uses the vacuum to quickly and effectively remove fat from the body.

Your surgeon will perform your liposuction surgery under general anaesthetic, unless it is a very minor procedure. Liposuction is available as a wet or dry procedure. Wet liposuction procedures involve the use of a fluid mixture injected into the area. This helps to reduce swelling, bruising and excess bleeding.

Why have Liposuction?

Most people who book liposuction surgery do so for cosmetic purposes. However, liposuction can treat some medical conditions. Your GP may refer you for liposuction if you have a number of conditions including lymphoedema and lipoedema.

Liposuction for cosmetic purposes can help to alter and enhance your body shape. With a commitment to healthy diet and exercise the results of liposuction surgery can be long-lasting. Patients who fully commit to a healthy lifestyle, you will enjoy the benefits of the procedure for years to come.
