Liposculpture removes fat cells with minimal scarring. The result is almost permanent if you follow the usual rules for healthy living.
You can receive this treatment at any age and most parts of your body can be treated (after or before pregnancy).
The operation is performed under a local anaesthetic and can last from 1 to 3 hours depending on the number of areas to be treated. You can return home the same day. A compression girdle is put on immediately after treatment and is worn continuously for the first 10 days. The girdle can be removed at night but should still be worn during the day for 2 or 3 weeks.
Bruises can appear and last two to three weeks before disappearing completely. Oedema can persist and hide the results of the treatment for 4 to 5 weeks. The results are evident from the sixth week onwards.
