Liposuction, or liposculpture, is a surgical technique that aims to re-contour specific parts of the body. It is often used in conjunction with other surgical techniques to provide the best result in reshaping problem areas. While this is a common procedure, careful pre-operative planning is essential to ensure a safe procedure, and a predictable, long lasting result.
Depending on your individual needs and goals, the location, extent and plane of liposuction varies significantly. Similarly, the duration of the procedure and the associated recovery time will vary.

We will help you understand both your body’s natural response to liposuction and achieve realistic goals using liposuction alone, or in combination with other techniques.
