Liposuction / Liposculpture

Get rid of that extra fat

Liposuction or Liposculpture is a safe cosmetic procedure aimed at reducing the fat collection in those difficult areas. Liposuction can be used to shape and contour providing the body with a more toned and youthful appearance. Many areas of the body can be treated and sculpted in a safe and controlled fashion with very little risk to the patient. Liposuction is often combined with various other cosmetic procedures.

Procedure Details & Information

Extra fat collection in any areas of the body
Abnormal contours or bulges
1- 2 hours depending on areas
Although the liposuction procedure can be done with the patient awake, our office prefers a general anaesthetic. There are small risks associated with any general anaesthetic but this method allows for better control and a more thorough removal of fat and sculpturing of the affected area. It also prevents the discomfort that is often felt when this procedure is done with the patient awake. In certain cases, and if a patient wishes, this procedure can be done with the patient awake. Dr. Chong is extremely cautious when performing liposuction, ensuring that it is completed in a very safe manner.

Through a small cut, tumescent solution (containing medicines that help reduce swelling, pain, and bleeding) is injected into the area of concern. The extra fat is then suctioned out and the area sculpted to provide smoother contours and a more youthful appearance. The small incision is then closed. A dressing and binder is then applied.
