Established in 2019, ASET Hospital brings together some of the leading surgeons in the North West to create a centre of excellence in the field of Cosmetic Surgery and Non-Surgical Cosmetic solutions. With a friendly approach, we believe in providing clear advice to allow you to make an informed decision about your lipoplasty surgery.
Lipoplasty (liposuction) has proven to be a very popular surgical cosmetic procedure; Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo, is a major surgical procedure that breaks up and "sucks" fat from the body. It is often used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back to sculpt your body shape.
Though liposuction cannot promise perfection it can give the appearance of weight loss as it helps to balance out the figure giving a leaner, more streamlined shape.
we can also perform micro-liposuction if needed (micro-liposuction allows for very small amounts of fat to be removed in a precise way and can correct surface irregularities). Small areas of liposuction can be carried out under local anaesthetic so that the patient is awake during surgery. Any significant amount of liposuction will require a general anaesthetic, where the patient is asleep.
Patients come to us with stubborn areas of fat that they can’t shift with diet and exercise. Liposuction can be a great choice for those who already have a healthy lifestyle and want to shift unwanted bits of fat. The surgery can significantly transform the way you look and feel, however it’s important to stress that liposuction is not a weight loss treatment or solution.
For patients who have recently lost weight and have loose or excess skin, liposuction may be needed alongside some other procedures in order to achieve the desired look. We, therefore, meet with all potential patients to discuss their individual needs prior to their decision and we can advise you on additional procedures (such as tummy tucks or skin tightening procedures) if needed.
Patients are assesed on an individual basis in order to create a tailored care package personalised to the individual, this involves checking your medical and psychological health. Our dedicated team will ensure that prior to your decision, you meet with a Consultant Plastic Surgeon to talk through your specific needs, questions and queries.
The procedure is carried out either under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia (you are awake) with sedation. Liposuction may be carried out as a day case, which means that you can have the operation and go home the same day. However, for more extensive treatments, an overnight stay may be necessary.
A small incision is made at the treatment site and a solution passed through a fine tube. The fat cells are then removed from the area. For larger areas, more than one puncture may be made to reach all the fatty deposits that are being treated.
Patients are most commonly dissatisfied if their expectations did not meet what can be realistically and safely achieved. For this reason, we try and get to know you before the procedure and talk to you about the results you can expect and what we can work together to achieve.
Some people at or near healthy weight often find they have stubborn areas of fat that won’t shift with diet and exercise. Liposuction is ideal for targeting these hard to shift areas of fat and can be a life changing procedure for the right person. It is not a weight reduction operation.
Your well being is our priority, Aset Hospital will provide a comprehensive and personalised aftercare packagewhich isl included in your treatment.
Following liposuction, a compression garment must be warn for 6 weeks. This will help to reduce swelling and help your skin mould to your new shape. This needs to remain in place for between 4 and 6 weeks but can usually be temporarily removed for short periods to be washed or when you bathe. It may be several months before you can see the full results of your operation as the swelling can take a long time to completely settle down.
